lyrics

[Malcolm X]

Ten men can be sitting at a table eating - you know, dining - and I can come and sit down where they're dining. THEY'RE dining. I've got a plate in front of me but nothing that's on it.

Because all of us are sitting at the same table are all of us diners? I'm not a diner until you let me dine, THEN I become a diner. Just being at the table with others doesn't make me a diner and this is what you've got to get in your head here in this country. Just because you're in this country doesn't make you an American, no - you've got to go farther than that before you can become an American.

I'm not a diner until you let me dine
then I become a diner
I'm not a diner until you let me dine
I've got a plate in front of me but nothing that's on it
I'm not a diner until you let me dine
then I become a diner
I'm not a diner until you let me dine
and this is what you've got to get in your head here in this country

You've got to enjoy the fruits of Americanism and you haven't enjoyed those fruits. You've enjoyed the thorns, you've enjoyed the thistles - but you have not enjoyed the fruits, no sir.

So I point these things out brothers and sisters so that you and I will know the importance of being in complete unity with other, harmony with each other and not letting The Man manoeuvre us into fighting one another.

No, you've got to go farther than that
you've got to enjoy the fruits of Americanism
and you haven't enjoyed those fruits.
No, you've got to go farther than that
you've enjoyed the thorns, you've enjoyed the thistles
but you have not enjoyed the fruits, no sir.

I say again that I'm not a racist, I don't believe in any form of segregation or anything like that; I'm for brotherhood of everybody but I don't believe in enforcing brotherhood upon people who don't want it. As long as we practice brotherhood among ourselves and then others who want to practice brotherhood with us - we're for that. But I don't think that we should run around trying to love somebody who doesn't love us.

Thank you.

I'm not a diner until you let me dine
then I become a diner
I'm not a diner until you let me dine
I've got a plate in front of me but nothing that's on it
I'm not a diner until you let me dine
then I become a diner
I'm not a diner until you let me dine
and this is what you've got to get in your head here in this country
No, you've got to go farther than that
you've got to enjoy the fruits of Americanism
and you haven't enjoyed those fruits.
No, you've got to go farther than that
you've enjoyed the thorns, you've enjoyed the thistles
but you have not enjoyed the fruits, no sir.
