Because of his non-conformist ways, aggressive defensive stance, and confrontation of the corrupt system oppressing his people, Malcolm X's birthday is not recognized by the US Government, but a leader doesn't need government confirmation. Malcolm X was a true warrior for the advancement 0f black people in America. He faced the oppressors head on, and was in my opinion the spearhead of any so called progress we have made. His powerful message still resonates as clearly as before through the voices and actions of modern day freedom fighters who's lives have been greatly influenced by his words. He was a real man, who gave his life for his people. Happy birthday, brother Malcolm. Your legacy will last forever.
