    It wasn't a famous "named" speech like "The Ballot or The Bullet." The quote from the speech you're asking about comes from an address he gave at a rally in Harlem.

    It is also often misquoted. It's:

    "Oh, and I say it again, you've been had. You've been took. You've been hoodwinked. Bamboozled. Led astray. Run amok!"

    It is not to get the black votes. It is to get votes. Maybe to even get heard. It has nothing to do with a race. Malcom X wasn't as racist as he was just mad. I mean all the white people from that time did treat us like dirt. Didn't they? Malcom probably believed in eye for an eye not turn the other cheeck like Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Maybe he was just talking about George Bush though. Did you ever consider that.

    It seems as if Malcolm has always been ahead of his time.
