Malcom X quotes that still ring true - he understood that we can't expect a racist system to dismantle itself

On May 19th, 1925, Malcolm Little, who would later become known as Malcolm X and then el-Hajj Malik el-Shabazz, was born.

Below, we've collected some of our favorite quotes that still speak to struggles facing the nation today. Happy birthday, Malcolm X!:
