Oprah And Malcolm X

The lives of Malcolm X and Oprah Winfery have some similarities's but mostly differences. The biggest similarities is that they are both very accomplished black American's. Malcolm X was a hustler, robber and a very messed up child. After going to jail he decided to turn his life around. In a few ways Oprah was the same way. She had struggled with her weight all of her life. Finally she decided to do something about it.

When Malcolm was a child his family didn't have very much money. They lived in a run-down house with many brother's and sister's. To make matters worse, they were a black family.

Oprah has struggled with her weight for all of her life.

I think Malcolm X was a sinner that turned into a saint. He was kind of messed up in the begging of his life. Once he realized what was going on he tried to help the African-American's see what the whites were doing was wrong and he wanted things to change. He did many good thing in his life to make up for the wrong that he did when he was younger. To me, Malcolm X was a saint for having the strength to speak their minds and standing up for the African- Americans. He is one of the reasions the world is a more loving place.
