Malcolm X said: "[I]n the House of Representatives, there are 257 who are Democrats; only 177 are Republican. In the Senate there are 67 Democrats; only 33 are Republicans. The Party that you backed controls two-thirds of the House of Representatives and the Senate, and still they can’t keep their promise to you, ’cause you’re a chump." You added the following : IF you believe government is better able to take care of you than you can. That government should equalize everything, but give you preference because of past transgressions -- and you always vote Democrat -- you're not only a chump but you're a traitor to your race." Malcolm X never "opposed the government taking action" nor was opposed to "equalizing everything" nor was he opposed to giving preferences for past transgressions. In fact Malcolm X was for Revolution either through the Ballot or the Bullet to rectify the wrongs Afro Americans had suffered. Malcolm X supported everyone from Ho Chi Minh to Kwame Nkrumah as long as they were opposed to the white establishment.
