Though he has been called a hate monger for his belief of using any means to achieve equality, he never shook from his burning desire for equality and peace from the oppressive racism of his time. Malcolm X believed in the civil rights movement to such an extreme that during one of his speeches he stated "If you're not ready to die for it, put the word 'freedom' out of your vocabulary"("Malcolm-X.org" 2).
