Full Text:
Malcolm X born: May 19, 1925 Look right now what's going on in and around Saigon and Hanoi and in the Congo and else- where. They are violent when their interests are at stake. But for all that violence they display at the international level, when you and I want just a little bit of freedom, we're supposed to be nonviolent. They're vio- lent [violent] in Korea, they're violent in Germany, they're violent in the South Pacific, they're violent in Cuba, they're violent wherever they go. But when it comes time for you and me to protect ourselves against lynch-ings [lynchings], they tell us to be nonviolent. Ho Chi Minh born: May 19, 1890 …the regime is well armed and helped by many Americans. The Americans are stronger than the French. It may take 10 years, but our heroic compatriots in the South will defeat them in the end… the Vietnamese people have always shown great determina- tion [determination] when faced with an invader.
