Actually, the answer to this is probably found in the words of Rick Grimes himself, in 2015, the episode named Them.

It has nothing to do with Malcolm X but the X in Malcolm X is also to hide something. The last name of Malcolm X was a white man last name and he wanted to hide it.

The comics address this very directly, at the end of issue 24 (no spoilers for TV, as I think this is still the prison saga). At the end of this particular issue, Rick very plainly states "WE are the walking dead", after a brief, hopeless monologue discussing their current situation. He's clearly making a comparison between the survivors and the zombies, as ...
