If you stick a knife in my back nine inches and pull it out six inches,
there's no progress.
If you pull it all the way out, that's not progress.
Progress is healing the wound that the blow made.
And they haven't even pulled the knife out much less heal the wound.
They won't even admit the knife is there.
~El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz (Malcolm X) (1925 - 1965)
