He was suffering from various physical deficiencies including a chronic stomach pain that he addressed as the source of his drug addiction. On the other hand, his psychological problems seem to be started after his parents’ separation which was a significant incident that shaped his personality. It is sensible to think that he started to feel anger toward both of his parents, particularly to his father who was already distant and broke the promise he gave to Kurt on marriage.
He grew up having black friends, but still had a sense of difference between whites and blacks. After hearing Travon Martin’s name repeatedly, he decided to look up the incident and that is when the hate poured out of him with every ounce of passion inside him.

Imagine living in a world where you are treated differently and regarded as less than human and do not have the same opportunities as your counterparts. This is the world Malcolm X and countless African American knew. Blacks in America were discriminated against in many areas of society from housing, employment, and education. Malcolm X was tired of blacks pleading to be part of white’s society, Malcolm wanted the American dream for Blacks as the constitution of the United States of America promised its citizens ‘By Any Means Necessary’. When Malcolm X was a child, he experienced racism at an early age.
The opressment of these people was widely felt. Even in today’s world people of the African American culture suffer and feel the after effects of slavery in the past.

Imagine living in a world of segregation - constantly judged by color of one’s skin and not being permitted to associate with the “superior” race. From slavery to discrimination, African-Americans experienced this horror in daily life since the beginning of their existence. Due to the fear of severe punishment, blacks were scared to fight for equality; however, on April 3, 1964 in Cleveland, Ohio, one brave soul finally did. His name was Malcolm Little (known as Malcolm X), a widely acknowledged human rights activist.
