Malcolm X Quotes About HomeQuotes about: Home

The black people are just there - paying rent, buying the groceries; but they don't own the stores, clothing stores, food stores, any kind of stores; don't even own the homes that they live in.

speechless and spellbound by the graciousness I see displayed
all around me by people of all colours.
