Malcolm X’s Use Of “So-Called”—The Rhetorical Gift That Never Stops Giving


The rhetorical gift that never stops giving is Malcolm X’s use of the term “so-called.”

Malcolm would discuss the “so-called Negro” or the “so-called Christian.” 

He used the phrase “so-called’ all the time. And so do I.

I use it in my blog and I use it when talking to people.

It never stops being effective.  

Here is a link to two other posts I’ve made regarding Malcolm X. Scroll down for a just a moment and you will see them.
