Throughout his life, he has gained many followers due to his characteristics as a leader and passion for his fight for justice.
He was focused and strong willed when it involved fighting for equality by influencing others for his cause. "Malcolm X said to hell with that! Get up off your knees and fight your own battles. That's the way to win your self-respect... If he won't let you live like a man, he certainly can't keep you from dying like one!". Rather than sitting down and doing nothing, Malcolm X refused to lie back and wait for justice to come. Through his speeches and talks, he tried to inspire others to get up and fight and realize the injustice that is around them. He believed in nothing coming to those who wait and had others do the same. If an entire community does not respect themselves, then the majority discriminating them, will never respect them.
He also was unyielding to many of other criticism and hatred towards his fight for equality. "... priestly in his bearing and his private life, warm and witty in company, gallant toward white people even in the days when he considered them universally and irremediably evil. But given a platform and a microphone, he became a pitiless scold." He ignores others and focused on what was his priority; justice for others. Being brought to many talk shows, radio broadcasts, he still continued to promote The Nation of Islam and stand by his beliefs. Turning a blind eye towards the hate, he continued to share his thoughts and ideas, which generated more followers to the cause.
Finally, he was honest in his ways to communicate his ideas and express his thoughts for equal rights amongst society. "I never doubted that Malcolm X, even when he was wrong, was always the rarest thing in the world among us Negroes: a true man". Many leaders have lied in the past, but Malcolm X seemed almost free of them. He laid out all of his flaws and owned up to them, never denying what he has claimed or said towards anyone. He only spoke the truth, even if he disagreed with what that truth is. Lies only generated false hope, which was something Malcolm X did not stand by. Honesty helps many develop trust, and with trust comes that idea and objective of unity within society.
Malcolm X was a catalyst for change because of unrelenting strive for justice for everyone. Though his intentions have seemed controversial, he still strived for equality. He was a martyr for his people even up to his death.
