He wanted White people and African Americans to work together. He said in his famous speech, “we will be able to work together, to pray together, to struggle together, to go to jail together, to climb up for freedom together, knowing that we will be free one day.” (Document B). It is evident that Malcolm X was only trying to push America backwards. By the 1960’s, Negroes were already enrolled in White schools and he was encouraging blacks to establish all black institutes and educational work shops (Document E). Martin Luther King’s philosophy was perfect at the time because it was pushing America forward more into desegregation.
He was a high achiever, he looked to perfect himself then he wanted to help others. Franklin opened a school for freed black slaves to help them learn to read and write. He believed that if they were educated they would have dignity and make them have better character. He even helps the freed black slaved find jobs. Franklin seemed like he wanted to improve the quality of American society he began to favor the abolition of slavery.
He believed that America as a country should be united beginning with its citizens. African-Americans were to be given the same rights as the white man and he fought for this right.

Although he may have been assassinated, his dream was
The nonviolent struggle was promoted before but was not taken seriously. Booker T. Washington realized that blacks should elevate themselves in education and start their economic strength instead of militant actions that was promoted at that time. Economic power and education could affect the long struggle for freedom where the armed struggle could only make it worse. His attitude was obvious in his famous saying "cast down your bucket where you are. "(Atlanta Exposition Address, 1895) Casting down the bucket used to maintain stability and planting the roots which make them stronger in facing white supremacy.
MLK dove right in and expressed his hopes and visions to the whole of America. He believed that America good change for the better good. That all people were equal and integration was the best thing for this nation. Malcolm X also had a great vision but it was barbarian and wouldn’t suit the nearing future. Malcolm X rested assured that racial separation was the best for a fast-growing country.

The Great Society was based on the premise that people should be equal in all realms of society and that one day people would come to America “not only to live but to live the good life” (doc. 4, 194).

Both black and white people do drugs, and Shakur felt that it is wrong to place the drug stereotype mainly on blacks. In his belief, removing the evil in people will make them honorable citizens and more caring towards one another. Shakur also goes on to say that it is time for black people to stop killing each other, and it is time to start healing each other. Tupac Shakur felt that a black president would have been a heaven sent miracle for the black people; in his opinion black people as a whole were not ready to have a black president. I believe he felt this way because he did not approve of the behavior of many black people; he also felt that the percentage of black people in jail was too high.
