Malcolm X, Ballot or Bullet Speech
Malcolm X Delivered his ballot or bullet speech at cory Methodist Church in cleveland on April 3, 1964
"No, I'm not an American. I'm one of 22 million black people who are the victims of Americanism. One of 22 million black people who are the victims of democracy, nothing but disguised hypocrisy. So, I'm not standing here speaking to you as an American, or a patriot, or a flag-saluter, or flag-waver. No, not I. I am speaking as a victim of this American system. And I see America through the eyes of the victim. I don't see any American dream; I see an American nightmare."
"It will be the ballot or the bullet; it will be liberty or it will be death."
