Do Not Step On Me

Malcolm x

I think there are plenty of good people in America, but there are also plenty of bad people in America and the bad ones are the ones who seem to have all the power. This is the situation, you and I have to preserve the right to do what is necessary to bring an end to that situation, and it doesn’t mean that I advocate violence, but at the same time I am not against using violence in self-defense. I don’t even call it violence when it’s self-defense, I call it intelligence.” – Malcolm X (1925-1965)

 

COMMENTARY

“I don’t even call it violence when it’s self-defense, I call it intelligence.”  This speaks to where I am at this point in my life.  I am certainly about peace. However, I don’t care who you are, don’t come for me! Don’t hit me, ’cause I will hit you back! Does not the rattlesnake warn you in plenty of time, “don’t step on me?!” Period, Case-Closed!
