Malcolm X: Most critics say that they dissatisfied follow Muhammad, that the unemployed and the oppressed follow Muhammad, and I think you'll agree, the sociologists, the economists and other experts say that the masses of black people are dissatisfied, unemployed, oppressed and fed up. So that, he actually gets his support at the mass level. But now you have other Negroes at the class level who pretend not to go for him because usually their job has been given to them by the white man, they have positions to which they have been appointed and they think that the only way that they can protect their job is by pretending in front of the white man that they don't go for Mr. Muhammad either. But you'll find he gets support at all levels.

McCuen: How many Muslims do you say there are in numbers?

Malcolm X: I couldn't say. I've never heard him say and he's the only one who would know.

McCuen: 500,000?

Malcolm X: I couldn't say. I think that anyone who does say is not in a position to know and anyone who knows, wouldn't say.

McCuen: What do you think that the Urban League and the NAACP have accomplished for your people. What's your attitude towards them?

Malcolm X: Well, in their own way, they have been doing their best to bring about freedom, justice and equality and human dignity for the black people in this country. But today you have such an intense degree of dissatisfaction and impatience existing among our people at the mass level that it is almost impossible to come to them with a program that's going to take another hundred years to solve their problem and they still be satisfied to wait. So the Urban League and the NAACP has done a good job within their understanding, but today, it takes more immediate solutions and the solution that the honorable Elijah Muhammad has is immediate. It's more practical.
