Intelligent quote of the Day

“For the white man to ask the black man if he hates him is just like the rapist asking the raped, or the wolf asking the sheep, ‘Do you hate me?’ The white man is in no moral position to accuse anyone else of hate!  Why, then all of my ancestors are snake-bitten, and I’m snaken-bitten, and I warn my children to avoid snakes, what does that snake sound like accusing me of hate-teaching?”

—Malcom X (1925-1965), attempting to explain black anger against white racist attitudes to a white press in The Autobiography of Malcom X pg.245
