Little Malcolm Beginnings
The "Autobiography of Malcolm X" is the instantaneous sensation that any lucid reader seeks, shifting the intellectual perspective on the racial divides that makes this book a revolutionary movement. During the 1920's in Omaha, Nebraska, Malcolm lived in an environment that encouraged the tensions of local and cultural racism in every peeking corner, ranging from school teachers to his closest friends.

These state authorities were not there to aid their financial problems, to help Louis with a way to cope, or to find out how the family's involvement ended in such position. The inconsideration of the eager officials was to swirl around Malcolm's home to hunt down after Louis's actions one by one, hawking her every move and eventually tearing apart a house that once contained a good family. The fact is that Malcolm knew they were not treated fairly by the representatives, the full-blown discrimination that preyed onto them felt entirely different apart from those of the white community. To be in your home and not be seen as a human being of moral conduct, but to view you as a savage animal, to be completely objectified, and not considered to be equal to one. The simplicity of taking a quick peek at a person and rapidly judging that person not by the way they dress, look, talk, but ignorantly looking at the their forever damned skin color. That very same inferior color that dominates every inch of skin on that body is placed at the slumming rank of society, intuitionally mistreating that person cruelly and unfairly on those criteria basis society sets on blacks.

Whites have finally realized how the truth looks, an essence they do not want to own up to. After so many years of black enslavement, Negroes decide to formidably fight against the white man's oppression. Simply acknowledging the differences between white and black is what leaves space for strong disagreements.
Little Malcolm's point of view displayed the integration that lacked amongst the individuals of society. Malcolm at the age of thirteen, was placed in a detention home with white folks supervising his mischievous conduct after his mother's nervous breakdown. The Swerlins were to keep watch over Malcolm for the remainder of the time. During his stay, Malcolm notices the supremacist attitudes circulating upfront around the house with no intentions of discriminating, just to describe blacks in terms of general sense. The Swerlins would have dinner and would openly talk about "niggers" or about Malcolm right where he stood, as if he were pretending to mind his own business. The psychological neglect that is inflicted upon, though less obvious, is just as serious as pretending Malcolm is not there. Children at that age are constantly ignored, continuously rejected, persistently belittled as they grow up without the guidance that everyone needs to cope with at those difficult times. Often they become sitting human targets for ignorant people who endlessly exploit them. The form in which it is utilized becomes characterized widely as passive behavior or not threatening for others. Malcolm evaluates the notion that white are raised in a society where non-harmful racism exists, various elements would take part internalizing to prove that racist remarks...
