Malcolm X Died 41 Years Ago Today--How (not) Far We've Come

This'll be a short one since it's obvious where I'm going with this and what the ultimate point is.

While I believe classism to be a larger problem than racism (simply because classism is too subtle to be noticed by most) racism is clearly still an issue. Look on TV and pretty much only see white people. Look at government and once again, you'll pretty much only see white people (and even when you don't, you might as well anyway).

Malcom X was killed 41 years ago today because of what he said and what he believed in a country where wrongspeaking and thoughtcrime are not supposed to exist. 41 years later, in all too many ways, this is still true. Wrongspeaking and thoughtcrime are not supposed to exist both do.

We've still got a long way to go, folks...
