“By Any Means Necessary...”
MALCOLM X SPEAKS
Revolutionary Black Liberation Leader in the U.S.
And in order for you and me to know the nature of the struggle that you and I are involved in, we have to know not only the
various ingredients involved at the local level and national level, but also the ingredients that are involved at the
international level. And the problems of the Black man here in this country today have ceased to be a problem
of just the American Negro or an American problem. It has become a problem that is so complex, and has so many
implications in it, that you have to study it in its entire world, in the world context or in its international context,
to really see it as it actually is. Otherwise you can’t even follow the local issue, unless you know what part it plays
in the entire international context. And when you look at it in that context, you see it in a different light, but you see it
with more clarity.
