Single A American Nation Malcom X and Martin Luther king were as different to each other as they are the same. One thing they differed in was the fact that Malcolm felt that the white man was the enemy and violence against them was acceptable. While King was for peace and trying to get along with each other whether white or black. Another notable happening was when Rosa Parks would not be moved she refused to move in a bus from a front seat where only whites could sit and move to the back where it was the black area. At the time, there was a city ordinance stating that African Americans had to give up their seats on a train or bus if a white man asked for them. Furthermore, the rule stated that no black person was even allowed to sit parallel on a bus with a white person (Bowles, M. 2011). While she was arrested because of not basically bowing down to the white man she stood her ground and in the end did prove that all could get along. Although the civil rights movement is a big hurdle that has been jumped there is still prejudice, racism and violence and it may be around for another 100 years but we have come a long way from the back the bus to the front. Without the movement we would still be living in world where a equal is just a symbol that is used in math, rather than to show people are the same regardless of skin colour, sexual orientation, gender or age. We need to all realize that we are the ones that can change our kids futures or we can make it as horrible as we once lived through. The distance we had in a twenty year period on how to get along with all races was something that if you had told someone that it would happen they would of thought you were crazy, however if we look at where we are from where we came from then our looking forward on what is to come will hopefully not take twenty years to achieve.
