Malcolm X

But everything the white man taught
you, you learned. He told you you 
    were a black heathen and you believed 
   him. He told you how he took you out 
 of darkness and brought you to the 
     light. And you believed him. He taught 
you to worship a blond, blue-eyed
God with white skin -- and you 
   believed him. He told you black was 
  a curse, you believed him. Did you 
             ever look up the word black in the dictionary?
