"The house Negro always looked out for his master ... lived right up next to his master ... ate the same food his master ate and wore his same clothes. And he could talk just like his master—good diction. And he loved his master more than his master loved himself. That's why he didn't want his master hurt. “If the master got sick, he’d say, ‘What’s the matter, boss, we sick?’ When the master’s house caught afire, he’d try and put the fire out. He didn’t want his master’s house burned. He never wanted his master’s property threatened. And he was more defensive of it than the master was." - Malcolm X
