History

The quote below comes from Malcolm X:

"I want Dr. King to know that I didn't come to Selma to make his job difficult. I really did come thinking I could make it easier. If the white people realize what the alternative is, perhaps they will be more willing to hear Dr. King."

What does this statement say about how white society viewed the two civil rights leaders?

A.King failed to achieve his goals; Malcolm succeeded at his goals.
B.King worked to achieve justice; Malcolm did not want justice
C.King was ignored; Malcolm was unknown ---> I think it's this one
D.King was acceptable; Malcolm was menacing

For me A doesn't make sense because in the end King did achieve his goals
by looking at the quote B can't also be it because malcolm was working for a same cause, right?
D. I'm pretty sure King was ignored by many people

Can someone tell me if I'm correct?

  3. I agree with John. Malcolm was saying people should listen to Dr. King - he was acceptable. Malcolm X, being more threatening about violence to achieve goals was more menacing. In other words, pay attention to King because the alternative might be violence.
