Malcolm X: A Problem of Human Rights
Well my purpose here is to remind the African heads of state that there are 22 million of us in America who are also of African descent and to remind them also that we are the victims of America’s colonialism or America’s imperialism. And that our problem is not an American problem it’s a human problem. It’s not a Negro problem; it’s a problem of humanity. Not just in this life but in our Past life. It’s not a problem of civil rights but a problem of human rights.
And what do you hope for from this conference?
Well we hope to bring pressure upon them; or rather we hope to press upon them the importance of their bringing pressure and world opinion upon the United States to take some meaningful effort to solve our problems in America. We want them to help us get our problems before the United Nations and charge America with violating our human rights, in the same way that South Africa is charged with violating the human rights of our people in that area.
And what sort of reaction have you been getting from the African leaders.
Well I’ve gotten a good reaction, a very sympathetic reaction and an understanding reaction. Many of them had been misinformed by the American government into thinking that black people in America don’t identify with Africa and therefore they’ve refrained themselves from voicing their interests in our problems. But I’ve impressed upon them that their problem is our problem, as well as their problems are our problems.
