Swastika, New York, Is Keeping Its Name
"There's a debate in this country over symbols and statues and place names that are tied toe white supremacy. So what to do about a small community in rural northern New York? Called swastika. This summer visitor proposed just changing the name, but local officials opposed the idea. Julia Richie from North Country Public Radio explains why Michael Al Kamo lives in New York City but loves visiting the Adirondack Mountains and upstate New York to cycle through its tiny towns and Hamlets and past historical cemeteries. He was on a trip like this winding through a remote stretch this summer when he noticed something else. Suddenly I came to a town called Watch. The Hamlets name was printed on a small brown street sign. He says he found the name jarring and disrespectful to Veterans of World War two, some of whom are buried in graves nearby, So I think it should be obvious that the town Should update its name and should pick a name that is not so offensive to so many Americans and so emblematic of intolerance, hate and tyranny. So al Comer reached out to county officials in August to see if they would consider it. He was soon directed to email the town of Black Brooke. Which has jurisdiction over swastika. The town agreed to add it to the agenda for their September meeting. And after about five minutes of discussion, the town's for counselors unanimously voted against it. So basically Was named by the founders of the area that settled there. That's black Brooke Supervisor John Douglas, who was at the meeting but didn't have a vote. None of the counsellors returned to request for comment. Douglas Saysthe Hamlets named far predates World War two and came from the Sanskrit word meaning well being the foresighted geometric character that represents the swastika has been used for thousands of years in Indian religions and seen as a symbol of good luck. Of course, That meeting was overshadowed beginning in the 19 thirties with the rise of Adolf Hitler, who co opted the swastika as a symbol for Nazism and anti Semitism. Douglas says. This is not the first time the Hamlets name has been scrutinized. There was concern that due to the Germans that everything that people may I have a different outlook on the name and some of the residents that were from that area actually fought or two and refused to change the name just because Hitler tried to tarnish the meaning of swastika. Douglas says the council didn't see a reason to change the name despite its widespread use as a symbol of hate and white supremacy today, I think that probably Maybe some viewpoint that it's associated with a butt that I believe there's others that do not associate it with. Hey, did the Hindus in the booth and All them today erase it from their religious history because of the Germans, Al Kamo. The cyclists who submitted the request was disappointed by the town's reaction. I didn't expect a quick, apparently quick, unanimous vote to reject the proposal. Social media response to the decision has been murkier, with some locals of the region bristling on Facebook at an outsider from New York City trying to meddle in rural affairs. But Malcolm Oh says he simply wants more people to see the Adirondacks for its natural beauty and deep history history, he says, at odds with the meaning of swastika today
Fresh update on "malcolm" discussed on The Fantasy Footballers - Fantasy Football Podcast
"And notes from around the League. All right. This big Zach Moss been ruled out buffalo bills running back. ZAC Moss will not play on Sunday Devon. Single Terry will have a chance to take it up to one. Yeah, and he will share the backfield with TJ Yeltsin. No Devon Single Terry while the chance to take to one hundred, he's in play. Rams Malcolm Brown returned to practice on Thursday got in a full session. CAMAKERS is not coming along as quickly. You probably going to have Malcolm Brown. Daryl Henderson Yeah. I. Think if I if I were to start one of those, it would be Daryl Henderson and I think he's a desperation flex play that could workout. Davante. Adams chance to play in week three does not look great Sunday, night game. So you need to have a pivot option in the Sunday night or Monday night game ready to go. If you do not have one of those on your Oscars or if there is someone on the waiver wire, then you might need to start someone Sunday morning not knowing whether you have Davante Adams, I agree, Julio Jones status up in the air for Sunday's matchup I watched the and rappaport talk about it this morning truly up in the air. Apparently, this injury is something Julio's been dealing with since before the season began. And after the game he had come out and said May I can deal with, but the team might have to say, no, you can't Mike and I both have teams that have this ridiculous. We'll Jones and Davante Adams I mean you want a team that has Julio and Devante that's a pretty good one do bunch but that's what I was told that zero. RB is safer for the health of my players. Yeah. Not True. Apparently here's good news Kenny Golladay limited in practice Wednesday and Thursday expected to play you starting in the an yeah. We we've talked about being hesitant win players rush back from an injury. I don't feel like he has rushed back. He took his time took the entire time often he should be a finite.

The top waiver-wire pickups for Week 3 of fantasy football
"Tap waiver wire picked for me this week. Is going to be 40 Niners runningback Jerick. McKinnon makes sense. McKinnon is available currently in 73% of ESPN League, so widely available and with the most injury, coupled With Kevin Coleman also being gone for a couple of weeks. This seems like an opportunity for the big free agent signing for Kyle Shanahan Step up and have Ah productive week and at least for a couple of weeks. I think he's the at least for this week. I think he's definitely the best ad long term. Maybe not because most it will return. So if you're just looking for help for this week, maybe a couple of weeks. Jerick. McKinnon is your best bet this week on the planet Jets, other playing A. Who cares? The Giants there. Still, I stayed in New York and you look the Giants Steelers. The Bears have run the ball on the Giants, and they stayed in New York. They're playing the Giants, so I would think that that's they're going to try to ground and pound. This is saline advice is always from the update and grapple is positive, right? Like they think he's gonna play? Yes, Okay again, though, it's it's obviously Tuesday, so it's hard to say anything definitively. But my cannon is the top waiver wire pick up, especially If you're hurting at running back, and if you have sake one if he had most, sir, if you had McCaffrey, and now you're starting to Sergio. Look, Yorgos got to start Jamal Williams from crying out. I got Jamal waves in my story. You might be hitting your waiver wire to pick up Jack Kennedy on the can, For sure, he's gone in one of my All right. Who else? Hide Let me fire Rams running back. Donald Henderson was highly drafted. You have Malcolm Brown, who left last week's game with a finger injury, along with Who's the other Ocampa and left with a rib injury as well. So Darnell Henderson stepped in. I think I believe you had 80 total yards from scrimmage. So Donald Henderson is my second ad. He is available in 54% of leagues. 50 44. That's good Darnell game this week. Rams and Bill's about it to Owen omits to know that those of a good man, that's an exciting game. This's now I'll give you a couple of guys right here. One's more of a long term play. The other is going to be a better bet. Immediately, but probably not for the long term. Joshua Kelly, Los Angeles Chargers, he is it looks like he has stepped right into the Melvin Gordon roll from last season. Austin Heckler obviously, is the main running back that you want with the Chargers. Things were better. With Justin Herbert under center. It's undeniable. Tyrod Taylor comes back. I'm I'm not nearly as enthused, but I have a hard time believing Anthony Lynn is just going to give the ball back to Tyrod Taylor. If Justin Herbert continues to be productive, why
Dallas school district apologizes for assignment describing Kenosha shooter as 'hero'
"Been given an assignment that involves the Illinois teenager accused of murdering two people during protests in Kenosha. The assignment was met with outrage by some putting Kyle Riton house in the same league is Gandhi and someone familiar with it, who spoke to CBS In in Dallas, said the teachers, misspellings of Gandhi and Malcolm X were pretty outrageous to seeing in assignment from an English teacher that stipulates that it would be created on spelling and then riddled with spelling errors would be enough to give anyone pause as too like the integrity of the assignment. The teacher has been disciplined how the school isn't saying the administration did issue an apology and said students didn't have to complete the assignment. Mike Krauser news radio
Los Angeles County's Lynwood City Manager Placed On Administrative Leave Following Response To Shooting Of 2 Deputies
"You had, of course, the shooting of the deputies in Los Angeles and there was there is a city man. The city manager of a suburb in that area is in the woods called Linwood City. It's right in the area, and the city manager of Linwood City is Jose. Oh, Mettetal. I'm sure I'm not pronouncing that correctly. Apologies, Jose. He has never been put on leave pending an internal investigation. And here is why Salvatore Alatorre Isa Linwood City Councilman, and he told Fox News that the council had a closed session last night and in that session, Allah tour. Put forth emotion to discipline or dismiss all met a tall because he posted on his personal instagram opposed right after the deputies were shot he put he put opposed that said Chickens come home to roost with a picture of Malcolm X. This is right after the deputies were shot, so the message was pretty clear with what he was saying there. It didn't need an explanation. Hey, told Fox News Allah tour told Fox News and in a text message. That the move against the metal was protocol and that he is gone and he will not represent Linwood anymore. It's a legal process to protect the city. He said. The city manager went beyond his authority with his remarks, even though it was posted to his private account, and I have see here's my thing. I'm a big fan of You. You're allowed to have a private life. If you're in public service, I think you're allowed to have a private life and I I look sometimes and I'm going to be fair, like for Chick Fillet, the owner of Chick fil A Everybody's all upset with him because he donated Teo that proposition California to not legalize gay marriage. You know what, Like, five years years ago or so, whatever, but getting his business practice in practice. They don't decide discriminated discriminated against Anyone for being gay or anything like that. Those are his personal beliefs, but But if this is different, this is these are this guy's personal beliefs. Right notably, you're allowed those But this is a personal belief. That's kind of your talking about death on somebody like like applauding someone's death to me that goes beyond the pale. Now there are some of the left tools. They will wait a minute. You know, the owner of chicken Is applauding, you know, and working actively to keep gay people from getting married that affects their lives. That's terrible, horrible thing, but I don't think you can equate them. You know, there's a line for me there somewhere. I'm just trying to be intellectually honest. You know, You know what I'm saying. Like, I think you have a private life. I can think you can say things privately. These are my beliefs, But I don't bring those beliefs to work with

He made the account private Jose Oma Todo wrote about sheriff's gangs terrorising residents in Compton over the years, and because of that, and the fact good cops don't turn in bad cops. This should have been expected. He also took verbal shots, a chair Vienna wave, He went on to say any shooting is unacceptable and he did not condone it. City distance itself from the city manager and the council voted to investigate an online petition got more than 1200 signatures so far calling for his resignation.
An Excerpt from the book Flirting with Darkness by Ben Courson
"An excerpt from the book flirting with darkness. Ben. Carson. Weapon number three, the magic number of greatness. I got to a point in my struggle with depression where something needed needed to change must suffering. So badly, I finally decided to do something about it. The ten thousand hour rule saved my life. His Book Outliers Malcolm Glad well demonstrated that to be truly greeted anything. You have to put in ten thousand hours of practice. People such as world chess champion Bobby. Fischer businessman Bill Joy, and IBM founder Bill Gates are among the many examples. Glad. While gives of people who excelled because they accelerated they focused and worked hard and gave at least ten thousand hours to becoming the best at what they did. Glad will show that whether you want to be a fiction writer or master criminal. Hockey player or a pianist ten thousand hours was the magic number of greatness. Bent my mind to that goal is a writer Manspeaker. A resolved to stop wasting my energies, processing psychological trauma and to go on a diametrically opposed direction. Instead of disappearing over why dreams weren't coming to pass, I decided to commit myself to working my fingers to the bone to ensure they did. Psychologists, John Hayes quote looked at how long it took the best composers of all time to create their first grey work. He found that nobody including Mozarts was a child prodigy had produced a piece of work of any significance until about ten years after they had I, taken music no amount of innate talent even in a field of genius such as music could overcome the years of practice necessary to Korea work someone may be talented. They may be lucky but they still have to go through ten years of practice in order to become a master and quote. When Churchill came to power during World War Two he said this as he was being inaugurated into office as prime. Minister quote. I. Offer you nothing save blood, toil tears, and sweat and quo. Lecture Chill Ready to go to battle anew, the path will be difficult PROC- ready to claim own finest hour. Getting better stars, which is getting off your tuition in doing something. So I did. My goal was to become a writer and a speaker put in the needed hours. My nearly worked myself to death, but it was infinitely better than brooding found the effort. Cathartic in fulfilling my spirit's began to lift. I figured I had two options number one either get discouraged that my dreams were not coming pass or number to spend the effort of getting prepared for when they did. Legendary preacher Charles spurgeon advised students to stop worrying about when they would get their shot at speaking and concentrate instead on their ability, and they'll let God take the opportunity in other words quit fretting over the how and focus on the what I took these words to heart and focused on my skill set as I improved my craft, our English word amateur comes from a French Italian an line route which means to love an obvious works when he loves the process and it feels good a professional is someone who worked seven days a week whether he feels like it or not. Today. My TV show hope generation is on twenty different networks more than one hundred and eighty countries and radio shows heard on more than four hundred stations daily. I get to speak in stadiums and arenas. My quote unquote overnight success came through hours of hard work. How you'll spend your ten thousand hours may be different from how I spend mind but you'll find as I did a clear focus and a way of getting off the existential treadmill of despair, transform your life but the age of twenty one, the average American has put ten thousand hours of practice into computer and video games when I use those hours for something more productive. How hard you hustle in the darkness determines how brightly you shine in the spotlight. To prepare for speaking to people I got really good at lecturing my furniture. My chairs were my captive audience I remember that Billy Graham. One said he got his start by preaching to alligators before he preached in stadiums. You have to start with a small stuff and work your way up. So I took every opportunity that presented itself. I spoke to classes of little kids and homeless shelters at old folks, homes, and to student clubs I volunteered to take the opportunities. Others turned down, I got lots of practice. When other speakers turned an organization or church down my said, yes I did this I several years Only the small minded person will refuse the small task for me if I had an audience of four people those enough to get some more practice to put in some more hours toward my ten thousand our goal. Jesus said that if you're faithful and a few small things, you'll be given responsibility over bigger ones Matthew Twenty five that sound good to me. Yes sometimes I did feel like surface the tragic here of Greek mythology who had to roll a boulder of a hill only to see roll back down then roll it back up again only for it to roll back down again repeatedly, I'll stubborn in my pursuit it was a great weapon against despair to keep working in spite of how I felt, which puts me in the mind of a scene from Tolkien's the Lord of the Rings in the First Book of that trilogy the Fellowship of the Ring, a band of warriors is commission travel to the ends of the Earth to destroy the evil ring of power by casting it into mount doom. During their long journey. Gandalf who was their leader was thought to be killed in the minds of Maurya in response airborne stepped up to lead the band in his stead amid his grief and despair he cried out farewell Gandalf what hope have we with you then he turned to the fellowship and said, we must do without hope let us gird ourselves and weep no more come. We have a long road. Like that trek to mount doom healing is usually a long journey. We normally don't start feeling better overnight sometimes, we must go on when we feel absolutely no hope. Our quest leads down a winding path and his sometimes fraught with trolls and Goblins and all manner of Dr Treasures. But psychological heroism is possible in such journey is were taking like Eric Gordon Frodo my set my foot upon my own path out of depression I gave them my flirtation with darkness and began to tread the road toward a grand purpose and it worked after many many years. The Dreams I had begun to despair finally came true new ones came into sight, but it all began by putting one foot in front of the other. If you allow yourself to just sit around and partly catatonic state stuffing yourself with junk food is a form of therapy and watching callous hours of television. You'll probably never start feeling better. But I. Tell You that you get off the couch and venture into the world to do something toward your goals. Things will start to change in your heart and mind if you pull yourself out of bed and get going on your dreams, that's how you'll will begin the journey to healing your broken spirit.

Cardi B SLAMS Candace Owens After She Calls Her an 'Illiterate Rapper'
"It's blowing up right now. So this is candace owens versus Cardi B. and not just doing this to be silly I. Did they actually got into something kinda substantive here it started when. Canvas was on Ben Shapiro's Sunday special. Let's take look the clip. I completely agree with your assessment about Cardi B. It is one of the biggest insult if Black Americans are not insulted by the fact that Joe Biden who has been hiding in his basement you know for the entire year maiden appear to come up because he was going to do an interview with Cardi B.. We we have nothing better to offer. I. Mean this be tend to. Donald Trump saying I'm going to give no. Interviews, but he came up and he decided to give an interview to Justin Bieber right I mean I wish I actually just be I'm sorry. I know you are a Christian Man I. Don't want to put you in the same boat as Cardi B. but it it would be absurd white America would go what what is this why? Why are you being interviewed by Justin Bieber and it's because you're pandering right? You're pandering you look at Cardi's instagram easy. She has millions of followers and you think. Okay. This is an illiterate person, and if I if I appeal to this a person and she does a group like she literally did in the middle of this interview, they think she's cool. She's hip just by sitting here and and taking this interview walking will vote for me. It's basically saying black people you are stupid. You are dumb and you're so foolish I mean do you think what if she just said in the middle of the interview Joe Biden? Can you name one Cardi B. Album? Not Jimmy favor just one Cardi B. Lyric. He couldn't do it. Of course he's not because he's being handled and they're saying black people like this person this is what they're into, and so here you go talk to her. Okay. So Cardi, b. e. then heard what candy said and she hit back she did a couple of videos I think four videos on instagram shows on camera, but you could hear her talking in the exact quote that she said she's talking about. Canvas she says, she has an identity crisis just because she is black doesn't mean she gives a F- about blacks and you can hear also saying the candidates owns husband George. as part of a group that she like into an upper-class kkk of the UK now first off. I was at Atkinson in Georgia's wedding George a great guy they are a fantastic couple. The wedding was one of the most spectacular weddings I've ever been to and it was just filled. With love and there were black people and white people and there were straight people and gay people and there were Republicans and Democrats, it was it was a truly just a just an absolutely wonderful wedding with with a meeting of Families George comes from an upper class family in the UK. Candice comes from Philly from mostly lower middle class family and that everybody was just dancing and having a great time. So this nonsense from Cardi, B. But anyway, that's what her. Take on what candy said was, and then you know candidates. So she's not just going to sit there and take it. So campus followed up with a couple tweets and I'm going to read to you she said Malcolm X. warned us years ago about the puppetry of interviews like Cardi B. and Joe Biden, he always spoke out against the White Liberal game of using entertainers pawns. This isn't really about you Cardi B. This is about black America Waking Up to Democrat racism. She went on and another tweet to say never listened to a person that has private security but once the public police defended never listened to a millionaire that made it here in America but trashes our country. These Hollywood idols are frauds leading sheep down paths they never took when they discovered success. So so candidates makes what I think are pretty cogent salient points and Cardi B. Then jumps back in. Cardi visas well, paying taxes is something that as much as I hate, it's a reality I will always have to pay but I rather might tax money go to free education than police funding use my money on something useful your president us our tax money to fund is empty camp in ruts. So trump uses his campaign a. Uses the tax money to fund his campaign is that is that right? Well, can't jump back in and said one your tax dollars or ready to go already go to free education. Jesus. That is true to know campaign uses tax dollars for funding. That is illegal that is also true and three defunding police initiatives has led to two hundred percent increases in black men getting shot in inner cities stop supporting black people dying.
Restaurant workers converge in Washington DC park for Labor Day rally
"While most of us took time today to rest during Labor Day Week, and others were using it as a chance to raise some issues about the economy. A rally took place in Malcolm X Park in northwest Washington, where people listen to speakers concerned about the pandemics impact on the restaurant industry. The crowd heard stories of restaurant workers troubles. Mickey Doyle Casella bartender, a member of the activist group Restaurant Opportunity Center. His workers are facing risks from diners. Some don't wear masks, even when they're not actively eating or drinking great, but a lot of them think they can do whatever they want, because they think that the customer is always right. Del Cassell says. Restaurant staffers are working harder these days than ever and fearing for the future, a lot more walking. It's really long hours. Really hot out Patio season is gonna be coming to an end. How are we gonna survive? The demonstrators say there should be extra pay for restaurant workers on the front lines of the pandemic. Delko cells has a little extra like hazard duty pay would help Dick Uliano. W T o P
Can I make a different video about dogs every day for a year?
"Hi Chris, this is Shaun from San Diego and I've been listening since episode one and I think I've finally found my side hustle idea. What if I make a video every day for a year what would happen I have an idea to teach people about corgis. It's my favorite kind of dog through a lot of Corgi lovers out there and I was inspired by the guy who blocked fish tanks instead of blogging, I'm thinking of making a series of videos and because side-hustle school is daily, I'd also like to make different video every day for a year but just all about Corgis is this a good idea and what do you think will happen if I do that? Thanks Sean. Thank you so much for the question. Interesting idea for sure I've never heard this one before daily video series all about not just dogs but specific kind of dog. So leave the discussion about corgis themselves for now. I WANNA focus more on the broad question here Sean specifically asks what if I make video every day for a year what will happen. I think what? He's thinking I've kind of fallen into this trap myself. It's not necessarily a trap but what's going to break it down I? Think what he's thinking is okay. If I make a different video every day for a year, it might start small but over time more and more people are going to be watching and then like month one month to month three as as I move toward know corgi video number three, hundred and sixty, five all of a sudden there's going to be a huge audience of Corky. Lovers all watching and just anticipating as video, etc. so that may happen. Okay. So first of all, it may happen and it is good to be consistent and it can definitely help not just in terms of building the audience, but also you yourself like if you're trying to get in the habit of regularly publishing something or just again being consistent that can help but I think it is a trap to think that automatically the audience is going to build often with these things i. think this was true a lot when. When everybody was live streaming every single day. During the beginning of the COVID nineteen season and I've done life streaming myself. I'M GONNA keep doing it I. Think it's a great way to interact with folks but notice that like in the beginning of that season, like a lot of people started doing who weren't doing it before and I did see a lot of growth but then like often what happens is it just declines after a while which can feel demotivating because. You're like Hey I'm here I show up. I'm here every day or however often it is. Why did people stop watching? I think we just have to remember that people have busy lives and they're not necessarily going to be committed to you know coming every day or whatever the pattern is like you have to make it worth their while you have to always say what's in it for that other person to make that commitment. So doing something over and over consistently can't be a good path to building more traction, but you could also do that over and over and not see those results. So just keep that in mind remember that classic definition of insanity right is doing the same thing over and over but expecting different results and I often think about this. I'm sure a lot of people have heard of the ten thousand hour theory which Malcolm. Glad well popularized. I'm a fan of. His books but I think there is a critique of Allah critique of that theory. which is you can spend ten thousand hours doing something and still not have much to show for it. You know, yes the Beatles practice pretend thousand hours and had all these experiences playing in Germany before they got big and the UK and then America, and beyond. But lots of other bands can practice for ten thousand dollars and not the Beatles. and. So we can talk about that for a long time, but I think the idea just doing it doesn't necessarily guarantee success. So to get back to Sean, I would say it's definitely worth a try but the bigger question is to ask what can I do to help educate the world about Corgis or whatever my topic is, but we're talking about Sean and hopefully build my authority as the Corgi guy and so if you think about that question and the answer might lead to that daily video series, but it just as might well lead to something else. Okay. So don't let them medium or format drive your process don't let that medium or format lead the. Way, you know focus on the topic focus on what you want to communicate and be open to different mediums or formats as you go.
Visions For Hollywoods Future with Ruth Carter
"Welcome to our podcast it's where we ask some of the entertainment industry's brightest minds what they do to fix what's broken when production resumes versed up costume designer Ruth Carter she's worked on films like Spike Lee's do the right thing. Steven. Spielberg's Amistad and the upcoming coming to America Sequel and at the Twenty Nine Thousand Nine Academy Awards this happened to her. Black Panther Raw. Nomination. She won for her work on Ryan Koukoulas Black Panther and that made her the first black person to ever win an academy award for costume design. This has been a long time come in. Bike leave. Thank you for my star. I hope this makes you crawl. Carter was also the first black person to be nominated for an academy award for Costume Design Way back in Nineteen ninety-three for Malcolm X. Despite her personal success Carter believes, there's always been something fundamentally wrong in Hollywood I think was built on broken narratives. and think about w griffiths or the nation. It was totally broken narratives and. People bought into it Hook, line and sinker, and that became you know the standard. In Hollywood itself even though stones were were going on people were in red face and black face 'cause there are people behind the scenes. Building those costumes and doing the props and they were people colored doing all kinds of supportive crafts that created the that cinematic events that was not including them. So I. Feel like the the work is to be done still adds shine the light on a lot of these supportive of people not only as directors and producers also as Crespi like myself. Back when Ruth Carter was getting her start in costume design is she didn't have a lot of role models and at a certain point as she progressed in her career Carter realized that she was blazing a trail for others. I wasn't overly concerned about a mentor that looked like me and the beginning because I expected that there wouldn't be any or many I. I look for Kassim designer that I wanted to be like and so I was forging this path of united. Volunteer. At Western costume when it was on melrose and I'd hear the names of costume designers over the loudspeaker being summoned to calls I thought wow that's melena cannon narrow. I've heard of her wow that's an rock I've seen all of her pills and I looked at my role as an artist and I was seeking out other artists as a black woman. I started to realize when work with spy can I started become more of a film student I started in theater There wasn't very much representation in front of the camera and behind the camera and it was you know our quest to create images for in front of the camera that we felt represented our community better and my passion from behind the camera was to say, well, I'm here because Spike Lee said I am the costume designer for his now and now I can take on that leadership as. An artist, but also as a mentor so I always had interns I was an intern I knew the value of internships and it was my hope that there would also even though I was young in the game that there would be another person who was as passionate as I was to reach the top and I I dreamed about like, Wow, what if I were to win the asker like?

And our our good friends the goats would had the good sense to get in the way disruption protest goats. Did. We have any doubt that are abolitionist goats that we feature regularly on this podcast would be on the right side of history. I did it. I knew. Yeah. Fred started as the Harriet Tubman of goats, and now he's becoming the Malcolm X. of votes. He's saying protests violent protests necessary. I'm just GONNA foment. Insurrection via goat. We love a political goat lava political goat I mean maybe especially because these goats technically work for Donald according to a White House pool report, there was a brief poss- during drive onto the property to make way for a herd of goats that live on trump's property. He gets a tax break a property tax break known as farmland tax break worth nearly eighty thousand dollars a year on his golf resort because it's supposedly doubles as a goat ranch. According to the Wall Street? Journal. Yeah. So I, guess there's like a a loophole for landowners. Who if you say that you're like property is technically like an agricultural project then you get fucking tax break. So you know what this makes me WANNA do. Primal, SCREAM That's fucking primal. Scream I mean within I haven't like truly truly gone off on this pod. It makes me so mad when people call Batman a businessman, he played a businessman on TV he. Hey businessman that's. It's insane.

"So welcome. Malcolm. Thank you for joining us again Daniel. Again. Good. See you and so I thought. Before we get into the actual text I thought just for the general audience if you could talk a little bit about seventeen contras When they came to bet who brought them, what their purpose in what they're why this important and then we'll get into the ticket volumes that we've just published nephew. Okay. So just a brief resume at some point after shocking money but A. Passed away into in near Bonnet, it's not really clear exactly when shocking anybody is one of the twelve teachers, specific absorb Chen with beginning with the Buddha Dhamma and the first e on and going through a succession of eleven further manifestations which shocked many but it was the last however shocking anybody did not. Teach Chan directly by there is a, there's a prediction somewhere. that that garbage was going to come and teach the vehicle beyond causing results.

Then within my on itself, there's a subdivision into cause and result vehicles and so on is considered to be the vehicle a results. specifically however, zone Chan in the grand tradition of Buddhist triumphalism proposes that it's the it's it's the vehicle beyond causing result. So, really there's three things. So anyway, garb doors Jay we don't exactly know when he lived chugging. I'm Kinda Norbu. Calculated that garb door jay was born in fifty five ad based on his his understanding of calculation but we don't really know with any certainty. in any event, and then there's three different lineages absorb chance. So we have what's known as the someday lineage. Has a long lineage twenty-one Masters from Garb Door J. DOWN TO SRI sing. Ha, and there's long day which has more or less the same short lineage as Medoc de which is the third series. So that would be the mind some people translate this as mine series, space series and then. INTERMIT- instruction series. Now, originally, garb door according to the low Joo Chan Mo of the intake. Garb door Georgia taught six point four, million, Shlo- Kaz, zone Chen not all of that was translated into Tibet into Tibetan a lot of it was left in India. of those six point four, million Schlaug is absorbed Chen and some tax.

Didn't work wasn't meant to be Percentage of people who do sports in high school who ended up making a career out of it is point. Zero zero one is what Malcolm said in the statistics fewer than two percent of NCW student athletes go onto professional go on to be professional athletes in college. Yeah yeah so I guess that's not even right and then how many gene nice. I guess they can't even really test that I mean they could but they'd have to check. Every single student athlete will no. I think it'd be very simple. They would They'd take the total number of student. Athletes should be easy to get and then they'd take a total number of career positions in professional sports awards. Go It's three hundred to one. That's the math I would do. That would be the fat if you gave me this as a project got it. That's what I would do but but what about like student. Athletes is such a range You could be on. Varsha could be on Jayjay freshman get Over a you're not a student athlete. If no if you're listening in your freshman stick with it you could beat the odds. Yes yeah sure. beat the odds. You're you're employed is Entertainer that's almost impossible. But I'm not a professional cheerleader. Well or are you. Are we defining cheerleader. Thinking that on the drive here I was thinking about some of the stuff I used to do with your body. Yeah in cheerleading. And how I would just never ever do do that now. Even attempt to do it right and I'll add to if someone caught you by the Pussy. Now you'd probably be very aware of it. Yeah sure whereas in the past you just shrug that off. I was still aware when it happened. But in and not aware way right like like someone brushed your shoulder. Yes but you just don't really have time to focus on your in a routine but now if you were just doing a recreational Ian someone caught you by the pussy like that probably I think it would just be a little different probably especially the Amos they call you. I think really wake you up now. Whereas part of it like Oh? That's intentional mentioned. Sometimes you know the butt cheeks. Yeah but chic sorry certainly someone's finger stabbed your butthole at some point point in that long career I'm GonNa say probably not because you're wearing bloomers and shorts the catch you have most of your cheek in their hand but then their their their fingers has taken out and they just poke is that like they inserted. It's just gotTa quick blow to that probably happen right and then you're like whatever you don't even I'm like it'd be offensive even talk about it. You know what I'm saying like. Oh sure what a waste of time even out of embarrassment just want to get get over. No Oh I know no one. Why would you bring that up? You're busy performing performing. But now don't you think you've got a quick jab to the butthole with someone's index finger and your ring finger or middle finger. For that matter you would be like whole. I do think that is the case. Yes it. Unless they're saving my life when they're sticking their finger up then and I probably wouldn't notice still. Oh Oh well that's good to know case. I arrive to rescue you and I'm like why would catch but I'm afraid I'm GonNa Poker but with my index. Stop Yourself. I won't catch you more worry about the rest later. Okay so you know we talk about this all the time the the article about how papers don't WanNa put black people on the cup a home and you always were from New York Times and I'm trying to find it and I can't find it and I'm just nervous because we keep saying New York Times and I don't know that's that's very fair and also all add my point stands regardless Louis of whether it's that the the point is they're they're underrepresented and is that a an indictment of racism or is an indictment of empathy. Who Buys the paper? Yeah that's the that is the point. There are facts in there that you're throwing in I don't know are true or not. I'll try to figure out if I can and I know I'd love to drink. rousson reconfigure kristen. She doesn't know okay. So you said that my dad moved from India to Atlanta.

Had it not been for the Honorable Elijah Muhammad Outta surely been in an insane asylum or dead or possibly even the murderer one of you. So what has Mr Mohammed trying to do. He's trying trying to get us on God's side so that God will be on our side and help us fight our battles when the Negro the so called Negro in America gets on. God's side listens to the teachings of the honorable. Elijah Muhammad WanNa get off of drugs. They want to get away. From a life of crime you'll want to get away from committing adultery and fornication then he would want to get off the wealthiest healthiest. He would want to get a job he would want to own a living and take care of his family and his family would respect him for the only means that you're taking care of your children. That's what what it is to be a father. Father doesn't mean that you had some babies anybody can have a baby. Having a baby does not make you a fallen anybody can go out and get a woman but not anybody can take care of. That woman is another word for co-responsibility Andrea Jenkins is an activist and poet and the first openly openly Trans Black woman elected to office in the United States when she watched Malcolm X. in her early thirties in Minneapolis at a mall see herself was coming coming to terms with her gender identity. And what she saw in Malcolm struggle around his own identities modeled for her that she could be transformed. And that you didn't have to be afraid aide. Andrew and I spoke in front of a live audience at the Wonderful Parkway Theater in Minneapolis after the interview. Injury told me that it wasn't until she was on stage with me Eh. Thinking through her answers processing that she finally realized just how much this movie has changed her welcome. Everyone thank you for joining us to this. This live taping of this movie changed me. Yes be recorded so the applause is very helpful. Thank you and I'm so excited to be here with Minneapolis. City Council Vice President Andrew Jenkins to talk about Spike Lee's Malcolm X.. Six when Tony One of our producers reached out to see if he'd be interested in being a guest for the podcast. We had no idea what movie would choose. And I was thrilled to hear that. You Pick Malcolm X.. And I want to read a little bit of what you wrote in your email back to us explaining why you chose it. You said growing up as a kid. I remember being frightened by the way the the media portrayed figures like Malcolm X. as he was always associated with hate this movie gave a fuller picture of WHO Malcolm X. was and depicted him in a more humane main way than the media. Did what you said really resonated with me because it reminded me of how I felt when I watched it for the first time as a teenager. I felt like I was discovering a history. I never learned in school. I grew up going to public schools in Miami and I feel like I learned release superficial. Cliff's notes version of the civil rights movement which included mostly Dr Martin Luther King Junior But Malcolm X. a tiny little blip right. Yeah and they were on the opposite sides of each other that was always the portrayal and you know. Would this movie shows is that. That's not the full story. The the movie shows a life in the story of the man with multiple identities. He was first born Malcolm little in Omaha Nebraska. Then in his twenties he was known as Detroit Red and finally only he became Malcolm X. Shabazz the Muslim American hero and revolutionary and the movie shows that the full story of Malcolm X. is far more complicated hopeful we'll transformative and as you said beautifully human to quote from one of my prophets Roger. Ebert who wrote this when he first saw the movie back when he reviewed it in one thousand nine hundred eighty two. And if you haven't read the whole review I highly recommended. It really is amazing. He said walking into Malcolm X.. I expected an anger film. The Spike Lee has made. This film is not an assault but an explanation and is not exclusionary. It deliberately addresses all races and its audience white people going into the film. Make SPEC to Malcolm X.. WHO attack them? But they will find a Malcolm X.. Whose experiences and motives make him understandable and finally heroic to understand the stages of Malcolm's life is to walk for a time in the steps of many African Americans and to glimpse where the journey it might lead some powerful stuff while I'm getting emotional right and can about the film right now? You will cry in this movie again. You'll try so so before we go too far into the movie. I'd like you to take some time and just close your eyes and I want you to think about out for about ten seconds. The first time he saw the movie who you were with how old you were where you were all the memories that you have and I'll just chime in when those ten seconds seconds are up. What memories came up for you? Wow as probably as very early thirties. Like maybe thirty one. You're living here already. I was living in Minneapolis. Maybe I saw at my South Dell or somewhere like that great mall go. They're you're off bright. My I want to see it when my partner at the time. Interestingly pretty sure I was much more masculine presenting At the time and yeah there was just this feeling of pride was kind of like I don't know did anybody experience Black Panther Elia in the theater. Yeah it was like a sacred space right. Yeah and particularly black space right. Is that what that it was like. It was very much like that. It felt very much like that. Even though at south deal was a little less maybe in the black is that had been at that point right but I think it felt like being openly expressive serve ones blackness was a pain Right and I think for much of history prior you know that was not now the case I mean there is a very complex history of being being black in America and I think Malcolm really addressed at a really beautiful way trying to re reimagined. The narrative that had been shaped around blacks in America and creating a sense of pride a sense of determination. So I'm not here this afternoon as Republican Democrat not as a Mason L. Tell us that as a Protestant last in Newark Catholic not as a Christian nowhere to not as a baptist nor methods in fact not even as an American because if I was an American the problem that confronts how people today wouldn't even exist so I had to stand here today as I was when I was born a black man before there was any such thing as a Republican or Democrat. We were black before there was any such thing as a mason or an elk. We were black before there was any such thing as a a two or a Christian we were black. In fact there was any such place as America we will and after America has long passed from the scene. There will still be black. Watch this movie last week as I was getting ready. Eighty per this conversation with you and this may be weird because we have met before today but I felt like you were there with me watching it because I kept Yep thinking about your own journey as an African American transgender woman many identities you hold right poet or historian activist City Council member. The name of you and the distinct chapters of your life All of this. I watched as they saw Denzel. Washington portray remark amax on screen. And it reminded me of what Atallah Shabazz one of Malcolm X's daughters Roach. She writes it in the port of the book. And the book autobiography of Malcolm X.. She writes my father's life and it stages of personal metamorphosis and enlightenment stand as a confirmation of how one can through witness and transformation ultimately claim one's own divine path and he was curious to know how this movie whether consciously or unconsciously shaped your own path like your own claiming of your own divine path as he thought about many chapters on identities of your life. Most again right. We're an emotional space. We can do it. This is on being Studios right we're allowed to go there. There's some oh settling on healing one of the things that impacted me the most about this movie. It was less about Malcolm X. in about Denzel Washington and how he became became Malcolm X.. Yeah right like he literally. There's a point in the movie when spout halfway through. And you're like Oh my God that's an ex- yeah and so I was really transfixed by the shifts And right yeah because I think I have experienced many of those in many many ways some that almost mirrored that talk a little bit about that you know well. I was never in penitentiary but my a father was for about fifteen.

"Released. This episode of based on a true story was written and produced by me, Dan, the fab. Now, I have a confession to make one of the reasons why picked to do this episode other than the multiple requests that I got four it was because I realized I didn't really know a lot about Malcolm Xs life, Denzel, Washington said the same thing when he was picked to play the role in one of the ways that he prepared for the role was to watch a ton of footage of Malcolm X and also to read the autobiography and more books about him. And so if there's one takeaway from this episode, I hope it inspires you to do the same. And learn more about Malcolm Xs life, there's just so much. We didn't get to cover or could even hope to cover in a single episode. So as we always do I'll leave you with some resources to start learning more and recommend the first place. You go is to pick up Malcolm X's autobiography it simply called the autobiography of Malcolm X, another great book is Malcolm the life of a man who changed black America by Bruce Perry as always I've got links to both of those books as well as plenty more resources to start your own deep. Dive into the life of Malcolm X over at based on a true story podcast dot com. Okay. Now, it's time for the answer to our two truths and a lie game from the beginning of the episode as a refresher. Here are the two Trues and one lie number one, Malcolm X was assassinated in front of his family. Number two, Malcolm X spent over five years in prison before converting to Islam. Number three, Malcolm X wrote a letter to president Kennedy. Well, he wasn't prison. Did you find out which one is lie as we learned Malcolm's family? Was there that day on February twenty first nineteen sixty five when he was assassinated. So number one is true. We also learned that Malcolm X spent six years in prison. So number two is true. Although I guess with technicality, I did say spent over five years in prison before converting to Islam, and he converted to Islam walkie was in prison. So I guess maybe on a technicality could say that is the lie. I'll give it to you. If that's what you say. But the one that I picked out as lies really very obvious lied because we learned that even though Malcolm did write a letter to the president of the United States while he wasn't prison. It was not president Kennedy, but it was president Harry Truman. So that means number three is the lie. This episode comes to a close.

"And abroad has finally come back. It's the devils. Chickens, coming home to roost. And that is the same metaphor, the real Malcolm X us when he was asked about the assassination following a speech. He gave undescended fourth nineteen sixty three today. It's referred to as the chickens coming home to roost speech, simply because of the answer that Malcolm gave after the speech about Kennedy's assassination that answer struck so deep that it was extremely controversial. After the assassination the nation was in shock. And that wasn't the answer. A lot of people wanted to hear even though Malcolm claimed his words were misinterpreted, and he simply meant that hatred. Had spread so much to create a society in which the assassination could be possible. Elijah Muhammed decided to suspend Malcolm X for ninety days keeping him from speaking to the press on behalf of the nation of Islam for that time already upset with everything we learned about Elijah Muhammad adultery and believing that the coming home to roost bid had only been in excuse for the suspension on March eighth nineteen sixty four Malcolm X. Publicly announced he was leaving the nation of Islam. Back in the movie after leaving the nation of Islam. We see Malcolm take a pilgrimage to mecca. We see Denzel version of Malcolm. Stop by the great pyramids and the sphinx. It's the trip of a lifetime. One point. We see Malcolm praying alongside his Muslim brothers including Whiteman. This trip really happened. It was in April of nineteen sixty four when Malcolm decided to take the pilgrimage to mecca. It was I opening for Malcolm once outside America. He was amazed at the kindness of total strangers while he was in Cairo. There were other Muslims who were on the same journey who hugged as though they were friends even though there were total strangers. And there were people of all colors race. Didn't matter this sort of common bond beyond race made a huge impact on Malcolm. He later, right? That it was this trip that proved to him that people of all races can come together as one through the power of God. Oh, and even though the movie doesn't mention it. It was somewhere around here that Malcolm X gave him the surname Shabazz or more specifically L hajj Maliki L shabas. Although because of his popularity is Malcolm X, a lot of people still called him that and since the movie too. That's what I'll call him throughout the remainder of this episode back in the movie after returning home to the United States. Malcolm calls a press conference and announces he no has friends of all races. He's willing to work with any other civil rights leaders as long as they're working toward real positive results. One of the reporters asks Malcolm about his former comments about having black men get guns to form rifle clubs, and that really was one of the questions that Malcolm X faced as soon as plane arrived back in the US. His reply was similar to what we see in the movie to basically when white people are allowed to have guns. It's constitutional for self when black people have them for some reason that scene is ominous. Then Malcolm went onto explain that. Even though he had made sweeping statements about all white people before he will never do that. Again, his trip to mecca showed him that all races can live together in harmony. However, he was also very careful to point out that racism was still a problem in America. Going back to the movie after this. We see Malcolm at home getting a phone call. He's carrying a gun when he answers it. The caller on the other end says something to the effect of your days are numbered Malcolm later while Malcolm is at home in bed with Betty he senses. Something isn't right. Just then we see someone throw a firebomb into their house. Then there's another one. Fortunately, it appears that Malcolm, Betty and their kids are able to make it out of the house unharmed now house behind them is engulfed in flame. Then later Baynes tells the media that he thinks Malcolm burn his own house down as a publicity stunt. The movie doesn't give an indication of time here, but that actually happened on Valentine's Day February fourteenth nineteen sixty five. They were like the movie suggests some molotov cocktails that had been thrown in the front window of their home. Fortunately, the movie is correct. And showing that everyone got out safe. Although it's also correct in stating that someone said they thought it was a publicity son wasn't the fictional Baynes character. But it was a minister in the nation of Islam who told him media. He thought Malcolm did it in an attempt to get publicity that did not make Malcolm happy. Beckenham movie, Malcolm is getting ready to give another speech at the Audubon ballroom in Harlem, he's still getting death threats enough. So that Malcolm decides to stay at a hotel room the night before just so his family won't get caught up in violence, should it happen. But nothing happens that night the next day, Malcolm goes to the Audubon he gets up on stage and begin to speech, then someone yells something in the back to men stand up arguing then one of the men throws down what appears to be some kind of a smoke grenade. People scream and chaos ensues while everyone is focused on what's going on in the back. We see a man in a trenchcoat run up to the front. He's carrying something. It's a shotgun. He aims and shoots. The podium splinters into pieces of Malcolm falls back from the force of the blast. Then after he's already on the ground to men step up with pistols and keep shooting repeatedly Malcolm's body. The camera cuts to Malcolm's kids in the audience as they're watching their dad, get murdered in front of their eyes. That is true. One thing movie doesn't mention no was when Malcolm X told an interviewer on February nineteenth that he believed the nation of Islam was trying to kill him two days later on February twenty first and happened. And even though the movie is a dramatic recreation of the events. It does a pretty good job of showing what happened based on the reports of those who were there there were about four hundred people in the audience that day, I there was the distraction someone in the back saying take your hand on my pocket. Malcolm tried to calm them down. Hold it. Hold it with everyone focused on the people in the back, including Malcolm, no, one even paid attention to the men who made their way to the front one witness who happened to glance back and see them said it looked like a firing line three of them. Another witness said there were only two but one had a shotgun while the other had two pistols, speaking of witnesses. Yes, the movie is. Correct. And showing the Betty was there along with their kids. Malcolm was shot twenty one times, including the initial shotgun. Blast that left ten buckshot wounds in the ensuing panic just like the movie show is one of the gunmen was caught by the crowd. They went on to beat him until the police arrived from February twenty third to February twenty six a funeral was held for Malcolm X that saw somewhere around twenty thousand people show up to pay their respects then in March three gunmen which hard with the murder and sentenced to life in prison. One of them died in prison in two thousand nine while the other two have since been released.

"That he can show Malcolm how to get out of prison. No hype. Oh, yeah. Talk. Baynes goes on to tell Malcolm how even if he were to get out of the physical prison. You wouldn't be free Elijah. Muhammad can get you out of prison the prison of your mind, the basic gist of that is true. But as far as I can tell Baines is actually a composite character, probably the closest real person that he would be would be an older burglar that Malcolm met in prison named Ben be it was been be who helped Malcolm learned the importance of reading and through reading gaining knowledge. However, it was a mixture of characters who introduced Malcolm to the Elijah Muhammad nation of Islam the movie also speed things up quite a bit by making. It seem like this happens right after Malcolm is sent to prison in truth. It was a couple years after he was sent to prison that Malcolm, I learned about the nation of Islam. By this time he'd been transferred to the court prison when he got a letter from one of his friends in the letter, his friend, a maid named Filbert told Malcolm that he had joined the nation of Islam, then later another letter arrived from alcohol this time, it was from Reginald who was probably one of Malcolm's closest friends during his Harlem days, Reginald said that he knew away for Malcolm to get out of prison and told him to stop smoking cigarettes and to stop eating pork, Malcolm didn't really know what he meant. But was determined to do whatever had to do to get out. So he stopped smoking and stopped eating pork. All this time. Malcolm sister, Ella had been petitioning the courts to get her brother transfer to a better prison Norfolk prison colony that finally paid off when he was transferred there at the end of nineteen forty eight one major benefit of this for Malcolm was at the colonies visitation rules were more lenient than the other prisons that he had been at that allowed reginal to come visit Malcolm and finally answer the question that Malcolm had wondered how will not eating pork. And not smoking help me get out of prison. According to Malcolm X's, autobiography Reginald explained that God is a man who has three hundred and sixty degrees of knowledge. He knows everything gones real name is a law, and he has revealed himself to Elijah Muhammad a black man, then Reginald continued to explain that on the other end of that spectrum the devil only has thirty three degrees of knowledge. He told them that the white man is the devil and worst of all. Where the thirty three degrees comes from the Masons after Reginald left. Malcolm was left with plenty of time to do nothing. But think he certainly had a hard time with racism in his life. But he don't some good white men two. Oh, and there's a brief moment in the movie were Denzel Washington's version of Malcolm little confronts, the prisons priest. He's played by Christopher Plummer, Malcolm asks what color Jesus and the disciples were when the priest says, we don't know for certain Malcolm says that Jesus wasn't white to which the pre shoots back got his white. Can't you see he points to a painting behind him of a blonde? Haired, blue Jesus Malcolm says, yes, I can see the painting that he's white in. But Jesus was a Hebrew. But that Elijah Muhammad teaches us at the paintings and depictions that we see throughout the churches are not historically. Correct. That confrontation actually happened. Although in truth, the priest never said God is white. He really wasn't a priest yet either he was a seminary student. But after giving a sermon on Paul Malcolm raised his hand to ask what color Paul was. That's not the kind of question he expected, but the student admitted that yes, Paul was a Hebrew and the original Hebrews were black. So Paul was probably black. Then when the question of Jesus is color came up the entire class was enthralled. No one had ever thought to question. The countless paintings that show Jesus to be white throughout history. After a pause. The students said that Jesus was Brown. It was a compromise Malcolm stopped pushing it after that going back to the movie Malcolm's conversion to Islam means. He must bend his knees in prayer. He has trouble doing this at first then he's finally able to bend his knees in prayer to Alah after being visited by allege Muhammad, the founder and leader of the nation of Islam in his cell a vision that according to the movie was no dream then after being paroled from prison. He goes to Chicago to meet Elijah Muhammad, Malcolm tears, up meeting the man who inspired such a change in his life Elijah. Muhammad reminds him that the world is still full of temptation, but I believe you will be faithful Malcolm says he will after this. We see Malcolm start preaching on the street along with other members of the nation of Islam. He's handing out flyers. And speaking to whomever will listen. Although I couldn't find anything about a vision. Like, we see in the movie, it is true that Malcolm had trouble bending his knee in prayer. It wasn't Baynes who told Malcolm how to pray like we see in the movie instead after writing a letter to Elijah Muhammad. It was the reply that encouraged Malcolm to bend his knee in prayer, not only that but letters from his family also helped him, but still it was hard. Malcolm would later recall that the act of praying was the hardest test he'd ever faced it took him a week to finally bend, his, knee and prayer. Oh. And there's another important bit. The movie doesn't mention well. It's sort of does by that. Whatever ferring to is. When we see the movie briefly mentioned that Malcolm wrote letters to a bunch of his old friends, the Hustler's and people he ran with we see a letter to shorty another to Archie, the reason this is important is because it was around this time after Malcolm had finally been his knee in prayer to Alah that he started writing letters to anyone and everyone. That he could think of he started telling them about the nation of Islam and the teachings of Muhammad that he'd come to believe as the movie briefly mentions, he even wrote to the president of the United States at the time Harry s Truman, of course, Truman never responded. But it was around this time that the F B I opened up a file on Malcolm little because of that letter, and that brings us to the bit of important little it was around this time that Malcolm little became Malcolm X for the first time as he would later explain the name little had been given to his ancestors by slave masters. He was renouncing that name. Oh, and then the movie the character of Baynes tells Malcolm that he needs to learn all the words in the dictionary to uncover their true. Meaning that's not really what happened. What really happened was that? After Malcolm started writing, so many letters. He started getting frustrated with his lack of knowledge he couldn't express his thoughts in his head on paper. He turned to his friend. The well read been be who sugge-. Jested Malcolm start studying the dictionary. So he did. But the movie did get the year of Malcolm's Perot. Correct. Nineteen fifty two it was in August of nineteen Fifty-two, actually, which meant that Malcolm X served six years in prison. Bizzare nother brief moment in the movie to touch on. That's when we see Malcolm go to the Bronx to visit West Indian Archie and the movie, it looks like Archie had a stroke, and doesn't seem to be able to walk denzel's version of Malcolm, let's himself into arches apartment and thanks him for saving his life back in Harlem that visit did happen. But I couldn't find anything to suggest that Archie had had a stroke like the movie says he was elderly. Remember, he was in his sixties decade or so earlier when Malcolm worked for him, and he was sick. But he also greeted Malcolm at the door when he knocked and after a while he remembered and the two had a chat. Oh, and the topic of the number did come up to. Although in the movie denzel's version of Malcolm says, he doesn't even remember what the number. He had was when in truth Malcolm told Archie that he really did believe he had that number. But the two decided it was time to put it to rest. It was time to put it in the past. Going back to the movie we see Malcolm giving a speech in a small room after the speech ends. There's that kind of moment in a movie where the movie doesn't say anything about the character. But because it's a big name actor, you know, that they'll play a big part in the film this time. It's Angela Bassett's character who is he clapping along with the rest of the audience to Malcolm speech, then afterward Baynes introduces her to Malcolm as sister, Betty the to hit it off quickly and interspersed around a few other scenes where we see Malcolm's power in the nation of Islam growing as he's named the national minister, we also see Malcolm, call up Betty on the phone to propose to her before long. The two are married. The movie doesn't give any sort of indication of time. But we know from history that Malcolm and Betty were married in nineteen fifty eight and yes, Malcolm really did propose to her over the phone then two days later, they were married even though their relationship seems to move very quickly in the movie and obviously getting married. Today's after proposing is fast, but the movie implies the relationship moved a lot faster than it, really. Did by that. What I mean is from the moment, we see Betty, and Malcolm meet until they're married in the movie doesn't seem to be that long. The movie doesn't give us a time span there, but that happened over a little less than three years, Betty met Malcolm for the first time in nineteen fifty five and they were married in January of nineteen fifty eight although the time line in the movie seems to be a bit off because as best as I can tell even though Malcolm X did become the first national minister for the nation of Islam. It didn't happen before. He married Betty in nineteen fifty eight like, the movie shows, the reason I say as best as I can tell is because I found some conflicting dates based on different sources, but they're all after nineteen fifty eight with most of them seeming to say either nine hundred sixty one or nineteen sixty two is probably when Elijah Muhammad appointed Malcolm as the national minister. Back in the movie while Malcolm and Betty are sitting at home. We quickly realize it's time for them to have one of those conversations Betty starts by asking, Malcolm. If they've ever had a fight. No, never Malcolm says, then Betty says they're about to have one. If we don't talk about it. It's clear Malcolm knows what he's talking about. But we don't learn what it is until Becky picks up the paper if you pause the movie here, you can see the headline on the paper. It says quote to Muslim women ask cult leader for support and quote. We can't see what the article itself says. But Betty starts reading the paper. The sixty seven year old leader of the black Muslim movement is facing paternity suits from two. Former secretaries Betty reads, Malcolm denies these accusations telling Betty their flat out lies, this is the devils newspaper. And he's trying to divide us by tearing down our leader. But Betty isn't so convinced are you so dedicated, but you've blinded yourself to the truth. She asks in the fight continues. But he's pleading with Malcolm to open his eyes. Then Malcolm goes to visit the women who claimed their children are alleged Muhammad's. Finally, he's convinced this is a huge deal because it went against Elijah. Muhammad's own teachings for the nation of Islam this happened. And it was the beginning of the end for Malcolm's involvement in the nation of Islam the movie again doesn't tell us what year this is. But we know from history. This was nineteen sixty three reflecting back on these events. Malcolm acknowledged hearing about rumors of Elijah Muhammad inappropriate behavior as far back as nineteen fifty five just three years after Malcolm got out of prison, but for a longtime. He refused to believe it for a long time. Everyone refused to believe it. And because of Daltry was of horri- to the nation. The women. Who ended up being pregnant would often be tried charged with adultery and sent off to isolation basically showed away without being able to contact any other Muslims. In this way, the nation was covering it all up, we don't really know if this was on purpose or if like, Malcolm X, many in the nation simply couldn't fathom that Elijah. Muhammad could be guilty of adultery. So just like the movie shows Malcolm investigated on his own. He broke protocol and looked up some of the women who were still in their isolated state. These women who claim to have Elijah Muhammad's children. He found out that not only were these not just stories, but that Elijah Muhammad had been badmouthing Malcolm X behind his back. He been telling the women that Malcolm was dangerous not someone to be trusted. Finally, Malcolm went to talk to Elijah Muhammad himself. He confronted the leader asking him to explain the things that were being said about him. When he did alleged Muhammed did not deny any of it. Instead, he referenced men in the bible who had done similar things. For example. The story of king David who stole your eyes wife Bethsheba. While this was happening. Something else happened that we see in the movie what I'm referring to is. When on November twenty second nineteen sixty three president, John F Kennedy was assassinated. Soon after Malcolm X is asked by the media for comments on the event in the movie, we see Denzel version of Malcolm X reply to the reporters by saying when you send out chickens, you expect them to come home to you at the end of the day the violence perpetrated here and

"For Archie running numbers in gambling scheme. Then one evening, Malcolm so FIA in Archie are doing cocaine when Malcolm decides to place a bet with Archie later. We don't really know how much later Malcolm is at the bar with Archie and Sophia when Malcolm says he's thinking about his money. What Archie asks Malcolm says his number hit. You'll me six big ones hachi last. You didn't have to one. The mood grows. Cold, Malcolm says, he'll drop it but insists Archie is slipping. Archie, obviously, upset drops six one hundred dollar bills on the table before he gets up and leaves. There is some truth to that. But there's more to the story in the movie, it seems like Malcolm goes straight from working on the railroad to working for Archie. That's not really how it happened. What happened was that? Well, Malcolm worked for the railroad. He likes to go to some poker games that used to take place at Grand Central station. One time cops busted the game. Malcolm was there. No one was arrested. But the running with the cops at the station was enough for Malcolm to lose his job at the railroad. Oh, and even though Malcolm was armed with a pistol, the cops didn't find it. Because he hit it in the small of his back. The cops didn't think to look there in the movie Archie is the one who tells Malcolm to do this. But in truth, Malcolm did this of his own accord. After this Malcolm did what he could to make a living off the streets of Harlem, primarily this meant robberies in string of drug use that helped him stay cool. If during those robberies only after this was when Malcolm met up with Archie, the movie is correct. And showing that Archie ran a numbers game. And Malcolm started running those numbers for him. What the movie doesn't do? And if you're like me you're wondering what is the numbers game? So real quick, basically. It's a lottery it was a legal. You can probably guess, but that didn't mean it wasn't extremely popular especially with the working class Americans around the nation. The basic idea was that each day. There was a new number you placed a bet on what that number would be very much like the lottery today, there'd be three levels involved the banker that was the person that held the bets and a tally of who had what bets then there was the runner which was the middleman between you and the banker they would tell the banker what your bet was. And then there's you the person betting by giving the runner what number. Do you think will win? Then when that days number is picked if you pick the right number. You win the runner would give your winnings from the banker how do they determine that days number? Well, that vary depending on what city you were in one of them are common ways was to pick the last digits in a series of numbers. For example. Let's say the new York Stock Exchange traded thirteen thousand one hundred and fifty stocks one day well before that day the game would basically determine that the winning number would be the last three digits of however, many stocks were traded the following day. So if thirteen thousand one hundred fifty one stocks traded in that example, the number of the day would be one hundred fifty one or maybe it would be a series of numbers from different sources. So maybe it's the last number of the new York Stock Exchange trades the first number of the market cap. It closing in the second number from the Ford stock at closing, those are just rammed random examples. But. In that example, if there's thirteen thousand one hundred fifty one stocks traded blast numbers one if the market cap is let's say nine hundred fifty nine thousand two hundred and thirteen than the first number in that would be nine. And if the Ford stocks closed at five dollars and twenty one cents then that number the second number in that would be too. So that would mean that one nine two would be that days number, and of course, you can do different combination. So it'd be one nine to ninety one to one nine until one. Of course, that is also just an example with much smaller numbers the market cap. Hopefully will be more than a million, but it's just to simplify that example. And sometimes those numbers would be from the stock exchange sometimes it'd be from race tracks the source of the numbers would vary. But the idea was that it would hopefully be something random at least. That's what gave people the idea that it was a fair bet. This was what Malcolm got involved in during his. Days in Harlem gambling and robbing but he didn't run into Archie because of an altercation in bar like the movie makes it seem instead Malcolm had a different runner that he'd give his numbers to when he was gambling. But then after a bad streak he decided to change his runner. That's when he found Archie who was known for being a great runner due to his photographic memory. Just like the movie shows Archie never wrote down his numbers. That's what helped him move up the ladder in the game until he was practically running it in Harlem because of his popularity a lot of people wanted to work with Archie, not everyone could though Malcolm did and that helped Malcolm's reputation. The movie doesn't give any sort of indication for timing. But it was in nineteen Forty-five when Malcolm's relationship with Archie went sour. And it was like the movie shows because of a bet, but it didn't go down like the movie shows, even though Malcolm place his own bets with Archie. He'd also started working with him as a runner sometimes Malcolm's own bets would hit. Sometimes they didn't one day, Malcolm collected on a bed. He'd made three hundred dollar winnings for fifty cents bet not bad in nineteen forty five. Three hundred dollars would be about the same as four thousand two hundred dollars today. As he always did Archie paid, Malcolm without any question that evening, Malcolm went to the bar with a pretty girl on his arm and money burning a hole in his pocket. The next day Malcolm was awoken by an angry Archie banging on his door. It seemed that after giving Malcolm the money Archie had gone back to the banker as he always did. That was the only time Archie ever wrote on the numbers when he went back to the banker to give them to the banker at that point. Archie was certain Malcolm had bet on a different number that would mean that Malcolm didn't win at all. But Archie had paid him the three hundred dollars out of his pocket, trusting Malcolm have you ever been? So sure if something at the time, but as soon as someone else casts doubt, then you start to doubt at yourself. That's sort of what happened here in the movie, the number was eight hundred twenty one, but there's nothing I could find to let us know if that was the number or not the truth is probably somewhere in the middle where both sides were so sure right up until the. Other party started to cast doubt on it. But the number of the day, and the number Malcolm bet is really neither here nor there. The result was pretty much the same as the movie Malcolm said, he bet a number that one Archie said, Malcolm bet a different number. So when Archie barged into Malcolm's room the next day he wanted the three hundred dollars back except Malcolm had been spending the money the night before. So we didn't have it all Archie left in a rage. Telling Malcolm that he had until noon the next day. It wasn't really about the money. Even though Malcolm hadn't spent all of it on that night before their relationship was one that saw thousands of dollars exchanging hands. It was a matter of trust that trust was broken Malcolm had a choice. He could stick around and face Archie. Or he could run leave town never come back. The next day when Archie found Malcolm again to get the rest of his money. It was a showdown at gunpoint, Malcolm, nearly trying to reach for his own gun and catch Archie off guard until well until Archie called him on it Archie knew what Malcolm was going to try to do. So he reminded Malcolm that he was young Archie on the other hand was nearly sixty years old, and he'd spent time in seeing one of the oldest prisons in the US still in operation as of this recording. Archie point was clear if Malcolm killed Archie he'd ruined his own life more than he'd ruined arches as you can probably guess neither Archie normal. Cam pulled the trigger that day, but the trust that had been lost was never regained. So they're working relationship was over going back to the movie after the falling out with Archie Malcolm goes back to Boston while he's there he reconnects with spike Lee's character shorty their lifestyle doesn't improve much though. And both Malcolm and shorty start. Pulling small time robberies that ends when we see the police rate in their apartment, and they arrest shorty, and Malcolm along with so FIA and short girlfriend woman named peg the next scene. We see is in a courtroom where we see the judge sentence so FIA and peg to two years in a women's, Tori. They were first time offenders, so they got off easy. But then the movie points out that shorty, Malcolm, we're also first time offenders, and yet the judge charges them with fourteen different robbery charges each of them for eight to ten years at Charlestown state prison to be served concurrently at the same time. The implication. Here is clear Sophia and peg are white women while shorty, and Malcolm are black men. The lighter got a heavier sentence. From a judge who seemed to be basing this decision on the color of their skin, Denzel voice over tells us that this is February of nineteen forty six when the sentence was thrown down before we continue though, I think it's worth pointing out the little Camiel hear the racist. Judge is being played by a man named William Cutler, if you're not familiar with who he was counselor made a name for himself as a lawyer working civil rights cases in the late nineteen fifties and sixties as he defended countless men and women who had been subjected to prejudice by the American judicial system. So basically exactly like what we see happening here in the movie consular never served as a lawyer for the real Malcolm X though, but he did make a Mark on civil rights in the United States and even served as director of ACLU between nineteen sixty four and nineteen seventy seven that. Side, though, the movie is correct. And showing that Malcolm little was arrested and sent to Charlestown state prison, although the burglaries didn't happen with just one accomplished. Like, the movie implies Malcolm actually, had four accomplices, including shorty the way we saw Malcolm in short get arrested as the only two men in the room is also incorrect, they weren't arrested at the same time or in the same place, but they were both arrested as for the other two accomplices. It would seem that one of the accomplices was never charged the cops apparently never knew about him. Well, the other one a main named Rudy manage to get away. It was just like the movie shows in February of nineteen forty six. When Malcolm started serving eight to ten year sentence for his crimes as for the women. The movie is also correct that they got less time and in truth. There was a lot more racism throughout the experience at the movie doesn't show everyone from court clerks two bailiffs to court appointed lawyers seem to hone in on the white women arrested with. Black men. The fact that they were all charged with the same crimes didn't seem to matter as much the women got one to five years at the women's reformatories in framingham. Massachusetts, well, Malcolm and shorty got eight to ten years at Charlestown state prison in Boston, Massachusetts. Speaking of the movie heading back to its time line. Now, we find Denzel Washington's version of Malcolm in prison while he's there he meets a man named Baynes who's portrayed by Albert Hall. When Malcolm asks Baines what his hype is Bain says that

"And yet when he comes back, it's still he still like all the it's like, the only thing he was really taking back was that white people were inherently evil, right? He was like, I don't generally believe that like white people are inherently evil now. But all of the things that you're doing our volume take any of that stuff. Yeah. But it's not like he went and was like every the world's perfect. He he's he's always been a very realistic person with a with a great head on his shoulders and just having that experience. I think just made him an even better person, you know. Amazing. So interesting because that the about like. Again. I guess too. Because when it comes to these black figures like they're always present, very one dimensional like Marley king. Again, was the one who was like love peace. Whereas like, Malcolm X was one who hated all remove that was all I knew for so long is like, hey, too. And it's the fact that I always like hammers and John. My man was not all about a hate white people towards the end of his life, which again caused a lot of friction which many people believe is why he was assassinated. He started preaching things. Everybody was like, well, we'll bre this is not why are the follow? You know what I mean? The fat. And this is the thing. I is beautiful to see the fact that a person could go in with one thought have followers say you'll like basically, screw at one point go heavy chain of thought. But like, yeah, we have to be accepting everybody to achieve greater goal is so interesting that like this man can say that. But when I live in like twenty nineteen I can watch Fox News thing. I listen to our president's freaking you can't do this simple task which just open your mind to all people are equal is so dumb. And it sounds so well, and they don't I and the reality is those people don't believe in that they believe in a world their actual World Vision is of one where one group has to be on top. They don't they don't believe in equality. They don't believe in. They they do believe that like one group is going to be superior than the other group. And it's always gonna be a fight for power. They might not think that the groups are inherently superior, but they will fight for their group. Superiority your name mean like, I it's like you don't need to be. That's why it's so funny like the alt-right like they'll be like, we don't we're not white supremacists. Where white nationalist? We just think that we need, you know, we just need to be separated. Like, we'll have our own thing here on there. But it's like, well, no, that's not how the world works. You can't just separate people out first of all because race doesn't even exist like that. But also because we're in commute we're live on the same globe and share the same resources, we need to be in communion with each other. And we're not we're fighting with each other. You know, it's just that's how it's going to be. So I think the what so we like basically the rise of back. We could talk about that. Now, right. Gets out of prison after spending about six years in prison and converting to to Islam tonight of of Islam, and he he like. Immediately starts rising in their ranks because he's such a diet dynamic speaker..

"Evers? Did it knew it, and we'll Malcolm X became Mexi did it. But then I'm thinking about this movie. They kinda showed that he already was. Willing to die needs to be done. I think next is like Russian roulette game. Right. Right. And I'm like if you're playing Russian roulette that means you're I mean, even risking it. All baby. It's like that's. Frightening and it's like so my try like, basically, what spike is kind of proposing is that? The thing that we're not talking about. And I just don't remember exactly when these scenes come into play. But inter splice to all of this is like flashbacks to his childhood. It's like we see the flashback of his like of their house getting set on fire by the K K K and the dad let coming out with a gun and just being like, I'm a man and like shooting at the KKK. But like they're like the wife says, why don't you kill them? You're better shot than than I just wanted to scare them away. They'll they they won't come back. Of course. We also have already seen like images of him like getting run over by the train, car, whatever. So we know that they do come back and they kill him. Eventually we see like the white woman social worker coming in and like trying to take the kids away and putting the mom in a mental hospital. She eventually does go to and the kids could take it away. We don't ever really learn about him and his siblings. Yeah. It just seems like he got broken up from them. And like is like a loner, but we do see him like he gets put into some foster care, and like so he's in this school where he's the only black kid and he's learning when win Dart's Kidman nickel is telling him to do what you're good at do. What you're going to get. Yeah. I I as much as no one has ever said exactly that to me I felt like dented with that. So hard like Jeff like that's not going to be. You can't do that. You're literally said that to me literally said like I said I wanted to be an actor. And I remember she was like do something reasonable like do something you can actually do not that. And I and I remember specifically that another girl in my class. Who who's a crate person? But she's white. And she was like everybody knew her because she was like good at sports like she was like a little bit of a tomboy. And. She for whatever reason said she wanted to be an actress, and my teacher was like totally gross same class gross. Steve Harvey's elementary school teacher said that to him like he can't be he can't be on TV. And now every year for Christmas. He's really Seth LARs. I remember having a team every year. Honestly, good for him people do that. Beyond petty. Tv there's a small crappy. A small one pal. But I kinda wanna do something petty like that like just like like a movie like sign my autograph, and like send it to the people never do this. But you got kids..

"She's so weird. What's? Movie and Angeles. I lines. She's all of this stuff with her mouth. And I was like this. This is so much going under the surface, and you can like you can detect all of that on the on the camera. And I think that like that has probably been off putting to my mom for years. That's crazy. I didn't know that. I remember probably let me know. I did. And I will say again, I remember being confronted in college for wearing a mock amac seizure. You have talked about it. But please people were still like people hate him out China just kill people might not his thing was. I'm just not gonna let you kill me and get away with it. That was. Yeah. Well, and at first at first he changed people never talk about. Yoho towards end of life. He became more accepting of allies. And that's the reason things started switching the things. That's so frustrating about that is like all of that is documented like him out, whatever saying every single one of those things like, yeah. Like, he he's like arm yourself. Okay. Like, you know, like, and then and then changing his changing his tune a little bit towards towards towards the end of his life, which could have been me. In the beginning could have been the beginning of who knows what they're saying that in the late eighties early nineties like Malcolm X's profile rose like so much in the black community before the movie came out. And I maybe it was because of rap maybe it was because of like. Just the black people may because like Brown king or things like that. Which is movie starts with the video of. I think something happened where black people were like we're tired of Martin Luther King junior like being our image. Because it's like. Got repackaged as like a docile like. Yeah. Grow of life. You know, we're accepting and loving. And like, we're okay with like slow progress. Whatever even though that's not really what Martin Luther King junior was about. But like that's what like it kind of turned into. And then people saw Malcolm X. And there was just like they were just like, oh, we want embrace Malcolm X because it's like he is standing his ground. He is fighting back. He's like not going to be nice about it. You know? And and so it's it's an interesting time this early nineties like for this movie to come out, and it got rave reviews like eight percent around tomatoes. Yeah. Made forty eight million dollars, which isn't too terrible considering it was in nineteen ninety two and it's like a three hour and twenty three man. That's a lot of money for three and a half hour move. That's kind of crazy and there's another action movie like you're watching explosions. Yeah. But yeah. But anyway, we have lots talk about..
