Malcolm X quotes for socialists, universalists (or anti-identitarians), and people who believe in civility

supporting socialism and opposing capitalism

"You and I have never seen democracy; all we've seen is hypocrisy." —Malcolm X

"We are today seeing a global rebellion of the oppressed against the oppressor, the exploited against the exploiter." —Malcolm X

"It is impossible for capitalism to survive, primarily because the system of capitalism needs some blood to suck." —Malcolm X

"You can’t have capitalism without racism." —Malcolm X

"Most of the countries that were colonial powers were capitalist countries, and the last bulwark of capitalism today is America. It’s impossible for a white person to believe in capitalism and not believe in racism. You can’t have capitalism without racism. And if you find one and you happen to get that person into conversation and they have a philosophy that makes you sure they don’t have this racism in their outlook, usually they’re socialists or their political philosophy is socialism." —Malcolm X

opposing identitarianism and supporting universalism

"I have made sweeping indictments of all white people. I will never be guilty of that again." —Malcolm X

"I totally reject Elijah Muhammad's racist philosophy, which he has labeled 'Islam' only to fool and misuse gullible people." —Malcolm X

"We must approach the problem as humans first, and whatever else we are second." —Malcolm X

"I believe in recognizing every human being as a human being, neither white, black, brown nor red." —Malcolm X

"The earth's most expensive and pernicious evil is racism, the inability of God's creatures to live as One." —Malcolm X

supporting civility

"Be peaceful, be courteous, obey the law, respect everyone; but if someone puts his hand on you, send him to the cemetery." —Malcolm X
