Martin Luther King and Malcolm X Among the most recognized civil rights fighters were Martin Luther King jr and Malcolm X who gave two very important speeches The Ballot or the Bullet and The March on Washington Address Even though both of them were trying to reach the same goal to free this nation from segregation they both had very opposite ways of reaching this goal For one Martin Luther King jr thought that to make his message go around he should use non-violet protests For example his speech March on Washington Address was a non-violent protest because many people came calmly with no anger or weapons and attentively heard the words of Martin Luther King Jr In addition he thought that together all races either black white or whatever could solve and eliminate this problem of segregation while at the same time make their progress slow so the affect lasts longer On the other hand Malcolm X was more about making changes at that moment so the changes would last longer Furthermore that violence should be used if by protesting racism non-violently did not work That is why his speech is The Ballot or the Bullet which means that if by voting changes are not made then they would have to be made by fighting Finally he thought that African Americans should solve their problems on their own this could be clearly found in his speech like in parts were he directed only African Americans in saying that they should not wait to make changes or protest Personally I intended to agree with Martin Luther King
