4 April 2015
This paper examines the life of Malcolm X based on the biography of Alex Haley.

This paper shows how the biography of Malcolm X by author Alex Haley helped the author understand the true derivation of racism.
The constant references to racism by Malcolm X made me curious about the concept of race. I discovered that almost 200 years ago, Johann Friedrick Blumenbach, a German naturalist and the founder of Anthropology, decided to use differences in head shape and skin color to classify mankind into five different races. Although there has never been any scientific evidence to support racial inheritance by blood type, mankind has clung to Blumenbach’s concept of people being of different races.
