Malcolm X Quote

We are African, and we happened to be in America. We're not American. We are people who formerly were Africans who were kidnapped and brought to America. Our forefathers weren't the Pilgrims.

We were not brought here to enjoy the constitutional gifts that they speak so beautifully about today.
