“If the Organization of African Unity is set up and composed of the independent heads of state from the African continent, and you and I are from Africa, have African blood in our veins, and we’ve heard them say that Africa is not free until all Africans are free — we’re Africans too, and we want them to be just concerned at the governmental level with our problem as they are with the problems of our people in South Africa and Angola. And we should let them know about it…” — Malcolm X

“One of the first steps toward our being able to do this is to internationalize our problem. Let the world know that our problem is their problem, it’s a problem for humanity. And the first form in which this can be done is the United Nations. One of the first acts of business of the Organization of Afro-American Unity is to organize the type of program that is necessary to take your and my case to the United Nations. Not only into the United Nations, but also we need to take it before every international body that sits on this earth. The Organization of African Unity, which consists of thirty-three independent African heads of state, will meet in Cairo on July 17. We should be there letting them know that we’re catching hell in America.” — Malcolm X

“It’s time for you and me now to let the world know how peaceful we are, how well-meaning we are, how law-abiding we wish to be. But at the same time we have to let the same world know we’ll blow their world skyhigh if we’re not respected and recognized and treated the same as other human beings are treated. If you won’t tell them that, you need to just get off the planet. You should be around in the company of people. No, in fact, you should be too ashamed to be seen out in public because you’re not a man, you’re less than a man, subhuman.” — Malcolm X

I love Malcolm X! He was THE MAN!!! He spoke the TRUTH and was dedicated 100% to the liberation of the Afrikan race! We need more black minds like him. Ase!

“We have to make the world see that the problem that we’re confronted with is a problem for humanity. It’s not a Negro problem; it’s not an American problem. You and I have to make it a world problem, make the world aware that there’ll be no peace on this earth as long as our human rights are being violated in America. Then the world will have to step in and try and see that our human rights are respected and recognized. We have to create a situation that will explode this world skyhigh unless we are heard from when we ask for some kind of recognition and respect as human beings. This is all we want — to be a human being. If we can’t be recognized and respected as a human being, we have to create a situation where no human being will enjoy life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” — Malcolm X

“The Organization of Afro-American Unity was formed by brothers and sisters, black, brown, red, and yellow, from the Afro-American community for the purpose of trying to devise some kind of positive program that would enable us to take positive steps toward getting some positive results…[I]f it took world pressure to bring us the gains, whatever gains we’ve made, then what should we do today? Continue to look to Washington, D.C.? No, look to the world. Bring the attention to the world to bear on our side against Uncle Sam. Don’t treat Uncle Sam like he’s a friend. If he’s a friend, we wouldn’t be in this shape. If he was your friend, you wouldn’t be a second-class citizen. If he was your friend, then a little black child wouldn’t have been hung on a tree in Georgia the other day. If he was your friend, you wouldn’t have a segregated school system in New York City. No, you have got no friends in Washington, D.C. You’ve only got friends when you get outside the confines of North America. You’ve got friends in Africa, friends in Asia, friends in Latin America.” — Malcolm X

Malcolm is turning over in his grave. This organization still exists I believe, but what have they done to achieve the organization’s goals?

don’t ever fly with Spirit Airlines!! they are a RIP-OFF!!!

The spirit is something that is sacred and should not be associated with a company that tries to intentionally mislead and rip its customer’s off when it comes to their luggage. They should change their name and the airline industry needs to be investigated and regulated for its unconscionable baggage fee polices and pricing. A carry on bag (e.g. a book bag) should be FREE and should not cost more than one piece of checked-in luggage weighing 40 pounds or less. Smdh. This should change!! Also, does anyone know if these major U.S. airlines are complying with Title VII, especially at the corporate, decision-making level? The EEOC should make the airline’s EEO-1 data public. This will show further how ugly and corrupt their “spirit” is.
