Malcolm X – “Who Taught You to Hate Yourself?”

“…teaching a man to hate himself is much more criminal han teaching a man to hate others.”

“Who taught you to hate the color of your skin? Who taught you to hate the texture of your hair? Who taught you to hate the shape of your nose and the shape of your lips? Who taught you to hate yourself from the top of your head to the soles of your feet? Who taught you to hate your own kind? Who taught you to hate the race that you belong to so much so that you don’t want to be around each other? No… Before you come asking Mr. Muhammad does he teach hate, you should ask yourself who taught you to hate being what God made you.” (May 22, 1962, Los Angeles)

Side note:

I agree that men will never be recognized as men as long as they do not protect the women in their lives.

    Men will never be recognized as their gender as long as they do not recognize theirself as human first.
