The same rebellion, the same impatience, the same anger that exists in the hearts of the dark people in Africa and Asia is existing in the hearts and minds of 20 million black people in this country who have been just as thoroughly colonized as the people in Africa and Asia.Malcolm X X Country Sayings By Malcolm X: The same rebellion, the same impatience, the same anger that exists in the hearts of
This Obamacare thing really scares me. The United States government / politicians are trying to turn the American people into a brand X "One size fits all" country. The past ten years has been very grim for Americans. Our current state is very grim. Our future is even more grim than ever. I used to tell people that it will get worse before it gets better. Now, I just say it will get worse.Carroll Bryant X Country Sayings By Carroll Bryant: This Obamacare thing really scares me. The United States government / politicians are trying to

We want freedom by any means necessary. We want justice by any means necessary. We want equality by any means necessary. We don't feel that in 1964, living in a country that is supposedly based upon freedom, and supposedly the leader of the free world, we don't think that we should have to sit around and wait for some segregationist congressmen and senators and a President from Texas in Washington, D.C., to make up their minds that our people are due now some degree of civil rights. No, we want it now or we don't think anybody should have it.Malcolm X X Country Sayings By Malcolm X: We want freedom by any means necessary. We want justice by any means necessary. We
I passed by General Zia's tomb and knew that I never would have become Muslim if I was raised in this country [Pakistan]. As a rebellious American adolescent, I had chosen Islam because it was the religion of Malcolm X, a language of resistance against unjust power. But in Pakistan, Islam was the unjust power, or at least part of what kept the machine running. Pakistan's Islam was guilty of everything for which I had rebelled against Reagen-Falwaell Christianity of America.Michael Muhammad Knight X Country Sayings By Michael Muhammad Knight: I passed by General Zia's tomb and knew that I never would have become Muslim
It's easy to become a satellite today without even being aware of it. This country can seduce God. Yes, it has that seductive power; the power of the dollar.Malcolm X X Country Sayings By Malcolm X: It's easy to become a satellite today without even being aware of it. This country
One of the things that made the Black Muslim movement grow was its emphasis upon things African. This was the secret to the growth of the Black Muslim movement. African blood, African origin, African culture, African ties. And you'd be surprised - we discovered that deep within the subconscious of the black man in this country, he is still more African than he is American.Malcolm X X Country Sayings By Malcolm X: One of the things that made the Black Muslim movement grow was its emphasis upon
I was the first judge in the 'Indian Idol' format. The biggest risk when you adapt a format from a country in the West is how to make it your own, so I remember at the press conference for Indian 'X Factor,' the press would ask, 'Who is Simon Cowell?' And I said 'Why don't you ask Simon Cowell, 'Who is Sonu Nigam?'Sonu Nigam X Country Sayings By Sonu Nigam: I was the first judge in the 'Indian Idol' format. The biggest risk when you
The tower, which was not supposed to be there, plunges into the earth in a place just before the black pine forest begins to give way to swamp and then the reeds and wind-gnarled trees of the marsh flats. Beyond the marsh flats and the natural canals lies the ocean and, a little farther down the coast, a derelict lighthouse. All of this part of the country had been abandoned for decades, for reasons that are not easy to relate. Our expedition was the first to enter Area X for more than two years, and much of our predecessors' equipment had rusted, their tents and sheds little more than husks. Looking out over that untroubled landscape, I do not believe any of us could yet see the threat.Jeff VanderMeer X Country Sayings By Jeff VanderMeer: The tower, which was not supposed to be there, plunges into the earth in a
Being poor is neither history nor permanent but a status. Writers who begin with this sentence "X is a poorest country in the world," to describe any African country are lacking intelligence. How would they feel if we turned the tables and used sentences that portray historical offenses committed to other countries? I bet nobody would like to read, "X is a country that killed millions of Y during Z's regime.Gloria D. Gonsalves X Country Sayings By Gloria D. Gonsalves: Being poor is neither history nor permanent but a status. Writers who begin with this
The great movement of apostasy being organized in every country for the establishment of a One-World Church which shall have neither dogmas, nor hierarchy, neither discipline for the mind, nor curb for the passions, and which, under the pretext of freedom and human dignity, would bring back to the world (if such a Church could overcome) the reign of legalized cunning and force, and the oppression of the weak, and of all those who toil and suffer. [ ... ] Indeed, the true friends of the people are neither revolutionaries, nor innovators: they are traditionalists.Pope Pius X X Country Sayings By Pope Pius X: The great movement of apostasy being organized in every country for the establishment of a
If this were a courageous country,
it would ask Gloria to lead it
since she is sane and funny and beautiful and smart
and the National Leaders we've always had
are not.
When I listen to her talk about women's rights

men's rights
I think of the long line of Americans
who should have been president, but weren't.
Imagine Crazy Horse as president. Sojourner Truth.
John Brown. Harriet Tubman. Black Elk or Geronimo.
Imagine President Martin Luther King confronting
the youthful "Oppie" Oppenheimer. Imagine President
Malcolm X going after the Klan. Imagine President Stevie
Wonder dealing with the "Truly Needy."
Imagine President Shirley Chisholm, Ron Dellums, or
Sweet Honey in the Rock
dealing with Anything.
It is imagining to make us weep with frustration,
as we languish under real estate dealers, killers,
and bad actors.
Alice Walker X Country Sayings By Alice Walker: If this were a courageous country,it would ask Gloria to lead itsince she is sane
We've become a superficial nation obsessed with fluff. Americans may be hard-pressed to name their two senators or find Afghanistan on a map, but they know everything about the loopy Kardashians and Brad and what's-her-name. I worry about our country's future when critical issues take a backseat to the inane utterings of illiterate athletes and celebrity twits.Congressman X X Country Sayings By Congressman X: We've become a superficial nation obsessed with fluff. Americans may be hard-pressed to name their
And in the racial climate of this country today, it is anybody's guess which of the 'extremes' in approach to the black man's problems might personally meet a fatal catastrophe first - 'non-violent' Dr. King, or so-called 'violent' me.Malcolm X X Country Sayings By Malcolm X: And in the racial climate of this country today, it is anybody's guess which of
Imagine that
a country that's supposed to be a democracy, supposed to be for freedom and all of that kind of stuff when they want to draft you and put you in the army and send you to Saigon to fight for them
and then you've got to turn around and all night long discuss how you're going to just get a right to register and vote without being murdered. Why, that's the most hypocritical government since the world began!
Malcolm X X Country Sayings By Malcolm X: Imagine that a country that's supposed to be a democracy, supposed to be for freedom
Malcolm X was the first political person in this country that I really identified with. If he had lived and not been purged, I probably would have joined the Muslims.Huey Newton X Country Sayings By Huey Newton: Malcolm X was the first political person in this country that I really identified with.

It became the country's official language in the 13th century under the reign of Alfonso X el Sabio (the wise one) as he tried to unify a country that was housing a number of languages, including arabic, hebrew and latin.Pilar Orti X Country Sayings By Pilar Orti: It became the country's official language in the 13th century under the reign of Alfonso
There seems in most countries to be either one extreme or the other. Truly a paradise could exist wherever material progress and spiritual values could be properly balanced.Malcolm X X Country Sayings By Malcolm X: There seems in most countries to be either one extreme or the other. Truly a
When you expand the civil-rights struggle to the level of human rights, you can then take the case of the black man in this country before the nations in the UN. You can take it before the General Assembly. You can take Uncle Sam before a world court. But the only level you can do it on is the level of human rights. Civil rights keeps you under his restrictions, under his jurisdiction. Civil rights keeps you in his pocket.Malcolm X X Country Sayings By Malcolm X: When you expand the civil-rights struggle to the level of human rights, you can then
They tell us we are all citizens, that we were born in this country. Well, a cat can have kittens in the oven, but that doesn't make them biscuits!Malcolm X X Country Sayings By Malcolm X: They tell us we are all citizens, that we were born in this country. Well,
I don't favor violence. If we could bring about recognition and respect of our people by peaceful means, well and good. Everybody would like to reach his objectives peacefully. But I'm also a realist. The only people in this country who are asked to be nonviolent are black people.Malcolm X X Country Sayings By Malcolm X: I don't favor violence. If we could bring about recognition and respect of our people
Since 1993, there have been eight or nine, depending how you count, abortion providers who have been murdered in this country. There have been arsons. There have been clinic bombings. There have been attacks offsite. Before this, the most recent abortion provider who was murdered was George Tiller in his church on a Sunday morning. So, this fits a pattern.David X. Cohen X Country Sayings By David X. Cohen: Since 1993, there have been eight or nine, depending how you count, abortion providers who
America is the first country ... that can actually have a bloodless revolution.Malcolm X X Country Sayings By Malcolm X: America is the first country ... that can actually have a bloodless revolution.
A revolution is bloody, but America is in a unique position. She's the only country in history in a position actually to become involved in a bloodless revolution. The Russian revolution was bloody, Chinese revolution was bloody, French revolution was bloody, Cuban revolution was bloody, and there was nothing more bloody then the American Revolution. But today this country can become involved in a revolution that won't take bloodshed. All she's got to do is give the black man in this country everything that's due him, everything.Malcolm X X Country Sayings By Malcolm X: A revolution is bloody, but America is in a unique position. She's the only country
The cornerstones of this country's operation are economic and political strength and power. The black man doesn't have the economic strength - and it will take time for him to build it. But right now the American black man has the political strength and power to change his destiny overnight.Malcolm X X Country Sayings By Malcolm X: The cornerstones of this country's operation are economic and political strength and power. The black
Caitlin Cary and I were always talking about X when we talked about whiskeytown, before it became an actual band. We like the concept of there being no real front person in X, yet this kind of switch up of vocals and really their sheer power, and their ability to sort of bastardise punk rock and midwetsren rock and even country into their own sound.Ryan Adams X Country Sayings By Ryan Adams: Caitlin Cary and I were always talking about X when we talked about whiskeytown, before
You don't stick a knife in a man's back nine inches and then pull it out six inches and say you're making progress ... No matter how much respect, no matter how much recognition, whites show towards me, as far as I am concerned, as long as it is not shown to everyone of our people in this country, it doesn't exist for me.Malcolm X X Country Sayings By Malcolm X: You don't stick a knife in a man's back nine inches and then pull it
The tragedy of Tupac is that his untimely passing is representative of too many young black men in this country....If we had lost Oprah Winfrey at 25, we would have lost a relatively unknown, local market TV anchorwoman. If we had lost Malcolm X at 25, we would have lost a hustler named Detroit Red. And if I had left the world at 25, we would have lost a big-band trumpet player and aspiring composer--just a sliver of my eventual life potential.Quincy Jones X Country Sayings By Quincy Jones: The tragedy of Tupac is that his untimely passing is representative of too many young
In our country they do not permit any information to be X-rayed through and through, nor any discussion to encompass all the facets of a subject. All this is invariably suppressed at the very beginning, so no ray of light should fall on the naked body of truth. And then all this is piled up in one formless heap covering many years, where it languishes for whole decades, until all interest and all means of sorting out the rusty blocks from all this trash are lost.Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn X Country Sayings By Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn: In our country they do not permit any information to be X-rayed through and through,
Detroit was an exaggeration of what was going on across the country. You could see the divisions, even within the Civil Rights Movement of that period. At the same time that Martin Luther King was talking about his dream, Malcolm X gave his most famous address in Detroit during that same period, "The Message To The Grass Roots," dismissing the notion of integration.David Maraniss X Country Sayings By David Maraniss: Detroit was an exaggeration of what was going on across the country. You could see

It is a time for martyrs now, and if I am to be one, it will be for the cause of brotherhood. That's the only thing that can save this country.Malcolm X X Country Sayings By Malcolm X: It is a time for martyrs now, and if I am to be one, it
If violence is wrong in America, violence is wrong abroad. If it is wrong to be violent defending black women and black children and black babies and black men, then it is wrong for America to draft us, and make us violent abroad in defense of her. And if it is right for America to draft us, and teach us how to be violent in defense of her, then it is right for you and me to do whatever is necessary to defend our own people right here in this country.Malcolm X X Country Sayings By Malcolm X: If violence is wrong in America, violence is wrong abroad. If it is wrong to
It showed me how any country's moral strength, or its moral weakness, is quickly measurable by the street attire and attitude of its women - especially its young women.Malcolm X X Country Sayings By Malcolm X: It showed me how any country's moral strength, or its moral weakness, is quickly measurable
If you are in a country that is progressive, the woman is progressive. If you're in a country that reflects the consciousness toward the importance of education, it's because the woman is aware of the importance of education. But in every backward country you'll find the women are backward, and in every country where education is not stressed its because the women don't have education.Malcolm X X Country Sayings By Malcolm X: If you are in a country that is progressive, the woman is progressive. If you're

My influences in this world have always been Crazy Horse and Malcolm X, my overall influences. But I was influenced by rock n' roll, blues, and country music. I was influenced by singers.John Trudell X Country Sayings By John Trudell: My influences in this world have always been Crazy Horse and Malcolm X, my overall
No religion will ever make me forget the condition of our people in this country ... No God, no religion, no nothing will make me forget it until it stops, until it's elimitnated. I want to make that point clear ...Malcolm X X Country Sayings By Malcolm X: No religion will ever make me forget the condition of our people in this country
In the spring of 2009, I was the 217th person ever to be diagnosed with anti-NMDA-receptor autoimmune encephalitis. Just a year later, that figure had doubled. Now the number is in the thousands. Yet Dr. Bailey, considered one of the best neurologists in the country, had never heard of it. When we live in a time when the rate of misdiagnoses has shown no improvement since the 1930s, the lesson here is that it's important to always get a second opinion.
While he may be an excellent doctor in many respects, Dr. Bailey is also, in some ways, a perfect example of what is wrong with medicine. I was just a number to him (and if he saw thirty-five patients a day, as he told me, that means I was one of a very large number). He is a by-product of a defective system that forces neurologists to spend five minutes with X number of patients a day to maintain their bottom line. It's a bad system. Dr. Bailey is not the exception to the rule. He is the rule.

If Martin Luther King, Roy Wilkins or any of these compromising Negros who say exactly what the white man wants to hear is interviewed anywhere in the country you don't get anybody to offset what they say. But whenever a black man stands up and says something that white people don't like then the first thing that man does is run around to try and find somebody to say something to offset what has just been said. This is natural but it is done.Malcolm X X Country Sayings By Malcolm X: If Martin Luther King, Roy Wilkins or any of these compromising Negros who say exactly

We must establish all over the country schools of our own to train our own children to become scientists, to become mathematicians. We must realize the need for adult education and for job retraining programs that will emphasize a changing society in which automation plays the key role. We intend to use the tools of education to help raise our people to an unprecedented level of excellence and self respect through their own efforts.Malcolm X X Country Sayings By Malcolm X: We must establish all over the country schools of our own to train our own
Many people in this country who want to see us the minority, and who don't want to see us taking too militant or too uncompromising a stand, are absolutely against the successful regrouping or organising of any faction in this country whose thought and whose thinking pattern is international rather than national ... There's a world wide revolution going on, it goes beyond Mississippi, it goes beyond Alabama, it goes beyond Harlem. What is it revolting against? The power structure. The American power structure? No. The French power structure? No. The English power structure? No. Then, what power structure? An international Western power structure.Malcolm X X Country Sayings By Malcolm X: Many people in this country who want to see us the minority, and who don't
