In memory of Malcolm X. And Thank You.

 Sean O'Torain. 

Thank you Malcolm X for your struggle and your words. You inspired me when I was growing up in rural Ireland to take up the struggle against injustice and capitalism. I am disappointed when I see the middle class mainly university based student movement here in the US leave out your most important statements. That is the statements you made against capitalism. 

Below I print some here on this day which would have been your birthday if the US capitalist class, seeing how your were moving toward working class unity and anti imperialism and anti capitalism, murdered you. Malcolm X, you were a hero. 
Malcolm's Words.

"It is impossible for capitalism to survive, primarily because the system of capitalism needs some blood to suck. Capitalism used to be like an eagle, but now it's more like a vulture. It used to be strong enough to go and suck any body's blood whether they were strong or not. But now it has become more cowardly, like the vulture, and it can only suck the blood of the helpless. As the nations of the world free themselves, the capitalism has less victims, less to suck, and it becomes weaker and weaker. It's only a matter of time in my opinion before it will collapse completely."

"We won't organize any black man to be a Democrat or a Republican because both of them have sold us out. Both of them have sold us out; both parties have sold us out. Both parties are racist, and the Democratic Party is more racist than the Republican Party."

“I believe that there will ultimately be a clash between the oppressed and those that do the oppressing. I believe that there will be a clash between those who want freedom, justice and equality for everyone and those who want to continue the systems of exploitation.”

"It is impossible to have capitalism without racism." 

"You show me a capitalist and I will show you a blood sucker."   

It should be noted that when Malcolm X says (above) you cannot have capitalism without racism, this means that you cannot end racism without ending capitalism. All those capitalists, capitalist supporters, middle class academics and know all's and liberals who say they oppose racism but do not oppose capitalism are either hypocrites or lacking in understanding of how the world works. It should also be noted that before the US capitalist class murdered Martin Luther king he also had come out for the US to move to democratic socialism and had moved against the Vietnam war and US imperialism.
