When Malcolm X spent time in prison, he had been influenced by many historical books that taught him about past events in which white people were the main cause of them. Reading these books strongly affected Malcolm in the way he view white people because before going into prison he did not care about what the whites had done but after he read the books, he realized that the whites are nothing but cruel and depraved people. Malcom X employs quantitative evidences, a simile and a metaphor to let people of different races know how monstrous and inhumane the whites are towards them because they believe they are superior and can do as they please.
Malcolm X used quantitative evidence to project how the white people have taken advantage of a group of people that are a different race without showing any remorse. In one his books, he had read about how ,”Entering India – half a billion deeply religious brown people – the British white men, by 1759 , through promises, trickery and manipulations, controlled much of India.” Malcolm X was surprised and disgusted about how the whites conquered land that belonged to a largely populated area of brown people without negotiating some sort of deal with them. This takeover of India is an archetype of how the whites have taken advantage of a group of people because they believed they were superior and could domineer over the other race. Also Malcolm X utilizes quantitative evidence when he learned about how, “Over 115 million African Blacks – close to the 1930’s population of the US - were murdered or enslaved during the slave trade”. Having a vast majority of one race (the blacks) getting tormented by the other (the whites) gave Malcolm X the view of how morally corrupt the white people are and how they show no compassion for the people that they hurt just because they viewed other skin colors than white as inferior. Malcolm X’s view of the white people dramatically changed, realizing that they were savage like people who exploited many people, taking control over them and causing them much suffrage.
