Both Martin luther king and Malcolm X were two prominent civil rights leaders in the fight for the betterment of black peoples lives although they are both agreed on achieving civil rights for the black community and agreed that the treatment of black people by white people was unjust their philosophy and how to achieve justice was different. Martin luther king and Malcolm X had very different views on the interaction of black and white people. Martin Luther preached for black people to have the same rights and freedoms as white people and coexist with whites and was even open to having white people join in on the protest for equality. Must not lead us to distrust of all white people, for many of our white brothers , as evidenced by their presence here today, have come to realize that their destiny is tied up with our destiny and their freedom is inextricably bound to our freedom. We cannot walk alone. (MLK, p3)

Where was Malcolm X believed in Black nationalism and was and was really negative towards white people and politicians. Even Though you can vote they fix it so you’re voting for nobody. Because either dog you chose I guarantee you you’ll still be in the dog house. (Malcolm X, p8) By the dog, he means the political parties, no matter who the black community votes fore they all are against them. The dixiecrats in the south being obviously against them, and the democrats in the north pretending to be for them. The negro ‘revolt’ is controlled by the white man. and all of the demonstrations to desegregate are just artificial fires that have been ignited and fanned by the white liberals in desperate hope that they can use this artificial revolution to fight off the real black revolution (Malcolm X , p17).

There are efforts to desegregate public places, have white people realize that black people are no different from them and they should have the same rights. And Malcolm is just calling it trick to get black people to vote. And that also raises the point that he seems to be against black and whites integrating into society as one people.
