Minister Malcolm X: 'We're Going to Have to Go to War Against The Racists'

This could easily be interpreted as saying that the supporters of equal rights and freedom for all Americans "are going to have to win the war against the racists in the courtroom and on the political battlefield," which is what they have done for sixty or so years now. The bigots, both racists and homophobes, have been losing ground, since the Eisenhower Administration and Brown V. Board of Education.

The opponents of Malcolm X, especially on the Right and Far-Right, whether they are racists or not, will take his statement to say that he was calling for a violent revolution and for the African-American community to start attacking law enforcement, especially Caucasians and others who are in their way.  This is not what he was saying.  He was saying that if you are physically or verbally attacked, you have a right to defend yourself.
