What are some racist quotes by Malcolm X?

People say Malcolm X preached hatred, but I haven't found any hateful/racist quoted by him. Care to enlighten me?

    You wouldn't, he was pretty much a nobody in and out of prison between 1943 and 1957...he followed the nation of Islam between 1952 and 1964 which believed that black people are the original people of the world, that white people are "devils", that blacks are superior to whites, and that the demise of the white race is imminent...he apparently was declared mentally disqualified for military service because he told draft board officials that he wanted to go down south to "organize them ****** soldiers ... steal us some guns, and kill us some crackers".....this was before he became a prominent figure, his views on the world changed and so became the Malcolm X everyone knows of....the one that people payed attention too and wrote down everything he said......regardless, back then he lived a hard life in a hard time...he had reason to hate.....

    He did say black people were superior to white people, which is the very definition of racism. He also said other racist things http://www.princeton.edu/~achaney/tmve/wiki100k/do...

    He eventually said he wasn't racist though...

    but so did Paula Deen.

    Yet look at how different they are treated. And Paula Deen actually sounds more sincere than Malcolm X.
