Daily Reflection 1/18

I heard a quote the other day that really moved me. It was a phrase Malcolm X used to describe his frustration with the argument that progress on issues of racial inequality move slowly:

“You can’t stab me in the back 9 inches, pull out the knife 3 inches and call that progress.”

I haven’t fact checked to see if he really did say this, but I love the phrase either way. I don’t even know that I have much more to say about it.
