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

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 tastic would that be And realize after I got on stage a may also before but especially after winning that I was a roll off.

So Fast forward So the whole incident about the Chinese doctor who had was fighting it. Got Suppressed and who ultimately died, and then you know what we turned into January. This year just exploded as a story and the US and I don't think anybody can go anywhere and a gathering you know A. Virtual. With the friends or family without covy becoming a major topic of discussion. So I very much enjoyed the the seminar you did you know a couple months ago Frederick and. Be Able to put you in Vincent together to Have a follow up. Survey and that is that is that. That's perfect and that that that. Discussion on Cova we did that you mentioned back in the day that will link to that in the description for this episode, but that was designed to be I think the title of it was. Something around demystifying covid nineteen hundred photographers, but it was turns out photographers are actually human so it doesn't does. It back then it. Doesn't really matter but I wanted to definitely follow up on that since we've done that. So much stuff since we did that. Webinar. So much stuff. Vincent that you're intimate with. In the rest of the world obviously is to a degree intimate with has happened both on the understanding of the virus side of things all the way through to disinformation and the politicization of. The whole mask wearing thing and you're not American if you wear a mask and now you are American if you wear a mask and you know all all this stuff has been happening. So I don't want to make this political but I do want to touch on the politics of that before we before we dive in then can you tell us a little bit about yourself and the podcast this week in virology? Well I am a Professor Virology at Columbia University, which is in New, York. I've been working on viruses for over forty years. I've been doing research on them. I wrote a textbook. I have taught many virology courses and twelve years ago I started a podcast. Decided to call it this week. Envir- Allergy I was inspired by Leo LaPorte. Chipper. Who probably inspired you as well I would guess, absolutely. Father. We have done this for twelve years and at the beginning of this year we noticed this outbreak in China we started covering it and I think almost every episode from the beginning of Twenty twenty now has been about the virus and the disease SARS covy to in Covid nineteen. And you know we have always talked about the threats of new viruses emerging. but they weren't taken seriously enough and we've had big outbreaks. You know we've had big ebola outbreaks. We've had Sika outbreaks, influenza outbreaks, many other viruses, but. I hate to say we were not ready for this. This all could have been avoided quite sadly. So now I am full on in educating people trying to counter the misinformation our listeners have gone way way up. It's just great. We're getting mentioned by Malcolm. Glad. Well, we got in USA Today The New York Times this week. But I think more people need to listen because we really tell it like it is and so that's the story.
Save The Whales. Save The Tigers. Save The Tapeworms?
"Most of us have heard of saving the elephants or saving the polar bears. But what about saving their parasites scientists are increasingly finding that parasites are key part of ecosystems and many risk of extinction NPR's lauren summer explains. When your job is to study parasitic worms, not everyone wants to hear what you do for a living. It's not a popular topic of conversation cocktail parties. I can tell you that Chelsea would is assistant professor at the University of Washington parasites a major public relations problem they're gross and slimy and most people don't really like thinking about them. But the fact is that they're really important in ecosystems would. Says just look at a flat worm she studies in California Ponds I. The parasites starts as an egg inside a bird, the birds about the egg, which infects snails than it goes from the snail to frog, but the parasite needs to get back in a bird to finish its life cycle. So it causes deformities in the frogs legs, which makes it easier for birds to catch and eat them which helps. Sustain. The bird population would says, it shows how humble parasites can influence the entire food web. But if birds are threatened, we're GONNA. See some parasites decline possibly to extinction in the presence of environmental change, which is why team parasitology released a new parasite conservation plan. The first step is simply identifying them of the millions of parasite species only about ten percent are known to science says Schuyler Hopkins of. North Carolina State University. We know nothing about them. We don't need another name Oh definitely don't know what they're doing with the ecosystems. Many parasites are just as vulnerable as their host animals are to climate change and habitat loss but even though an animal may be listed as endangered, it's parasites aren't, but they could be added alongside their more visible hosts. It would be a really great way or easy way. To get a lot of mileage for her site conservation because humans tend to gravitate to animals like us. It is the wolves and the grizzlies and the polar bears mostly the mammals that really get people's attention Jacob Malcolm Works for the advocacy group defenders of wildlife. He says, it's not all bad. That humans focus on those charismatic critters saving their habitat can also help the less charismatic species in their ecosystem. So whatever chances his group launches a save the Leeches campaign pretty close to zero. So now's the time leach lovers of the World Unite Lauren summer NPR news.

The first two shelby on my hyeon are considered to be the vehicles the 'cause. 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.

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.

And I really wanted to share this answer because it shows the loved the empathy and compassion that exists there at the same time I think we often feel. that. If. Someone is assertive that they can't be affectionate, but I believe that we can hold both those emotions at the same time, and I think we need to learn that in our own lives, but I would ask Malcolm X..

Once again that's on being dot Org Ford Slash. TMC 'EM survey and we can't wait to hear from you sweat till I wrote an it all no one of the things that I really value the most watching this movie now at the age of thirty seven that he didn't see at the age of thirteen or fourteen when I first saw it is is that the character of Malcolm X. Model someone who was a lifelong learner. He in the movie. We see make mistakes and he owns them publicly quickly. No less publicly apologizes. He owns his mistakes and we watch him change his mind repeatedly and I've watched a lot of movies and I can't think of another leading character who models us as clearly as he does and I'm just I wonder how this movie when you think about it and Malcolm in particular as a lifelong learner. How that's kind of grown with you? How it's changed as you've gotten older and you've seen it throughout your life? Well I absolutely relate to a life long learner label so I graduated from high school all in one thousand nine hundred seventy nine exactly forty years ago A move to Minneapolis to go to the University of Minnesota Ota and add it about three years at the U. and left school. Not Not intentionally. I was sort of forced out I was out in buying and one of my fraternity brothers as gay is what he how he framed it and I came out as bisexual right sexual so kind of berry publicly heaviness learning really deeply internal reality like literally played out in real life and I had had to leave school because he we were roommates and he kicked me out of the apartment and I had no place else to go so I had to go back home come out to my family we in Chicago in Chicago so there was this whole sort of to multiple time and I would go back to school go periodically throughout my buddy venture. It took me twenty years a complete my bachelor's degree from Metropolitan State University whose model is be a lifelong learner. I didn't know that so oh so I did that and then but right at that time. The time that I came came out as a trans identified person which was probably around nine thousand nine hundred ninety two nine hundred ninety so right when this movie was was being released you know when I when I came out like I opened myself a up and it was very public and at the time the medical world was saying. Can you know transgender people. You should come out you know. Do your transition move to another or city and just create a new identity. But I didn't WanNa do the family here. Had a daughter hotter from a marriage That I had entered into as a way to try to overcome my gender. HM This for you and so so I stayed here in this very public environment and People I still run into people today who reference my past life and you know and so I think that was you know you can kind of relate that to this trends formation. I think that Malcolm X's life took an how the movie not really sort of distinctively portrays Stolz different phases of his life and learning. And my life if it's been very much like that yeah these sort of completely this thing chapters but they are kind of flow into each other and and feed into each other which I think was very similar to Malcolm X. May nineteenth we celebrate Malcolm X's birthday because he was a great great Afro. American Malcolm X.. Is You all of you. And you are Malcolm X.. In the mix I am. I convinced I am on connects X..

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.

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.

"Like what the fuck what is happening. I think that I think and Kelly Lynch is really trying. She's given it really because I mean it's that thing where it's like actors at different stages in their careers Russell Crowe is like I know more movies are coming because 'cause I've been as he looks like who's been night. It is like you're going to be the you're going to get shots. Denzel is like this may have been a mistake. Kelly Lynch is like I'm a leading lady in a move okay. I got to really make the most out of this. I mean Denzel. He'd already done Malcolm X.. Movie style was so shocked when it was whereas it was after Malcolm X.. A whole feels like a deal that had been made. Maybe before Malcolm X. Malcolm X. comes out and they're like Oh Denzel remember that every body remember that we talked about that. Hey Denzel probably was a good sized check at the point that he knows. This is a movie that in ninety five this type of thing much like the net it was very we're gonNA be a big damn deal. I was thinking about moving lawnmower man. Remember that movie yeah and then realize the director he also directed lawnmower man but it was like there was a lot of movies director. I looked l'amour man was ahead apparently but if you look how much it made it was crazy oh but it but it was this thing where there were a lot of movies for kids. Sit down. We'll tell you about movies. In the early nineties. There was a lot of movies that were that were talking about the Internet because they were talking about but it didn't really exist as a regular as we now know it so there was all these virtual reality was also big thing yeah like talking about virtual like sorta pretending virtual reality was a <hes> well this type of thing..

"What you just isn't that some crazy shit is that you legit hat, and it's United States government out taken out black leaders where to this day. I'm going to this day case did this day. David Duke is still talking like he was talking this year last year when I'm like came out. He is fine. He is fine. But yet the FBI and other people have literally. Say what you want to say, they focus is the Black Panther show. You call them like. Somebody's house and like everyone ends up dead. And there's no footage of what happened to Mokose. Oh, yeah. They were just they were just in mecca with him like. There for no just hanging out watching every move like. Yeah. Listening to every you know, feels very much like, well, we'll just let them let them kill themselves. It'll be fine. We won't this. When they say, though, this movie proves I will never trust Gus ever. I will never trust that man. For for thinking about at the end of the movie, he's just out real. I'm never trusted. Before because he's like he gets like tackle like three different times full scale like. Shot in the leg. And then at the end like everybody's on top of him like about to tear apart. And you just seem like. It's just like. Great. Yeah. I would never chest also said about honesty was very sad about Malcolm X's death. Is that to me is like how he died in an amenity that is that he's again in front of his kids and his wife, but also it wasn't like a shot, and I think in real life. It wasn't just one shot. Nothing like one shot is better than what was it ten or twelve that he actually ended up getting too many is like he shot with a shotgun at close range. My man is clearly debt. But if these people still with his wife running up to him, you know, what I'm saying still continue to shoot as man as like, what type of Senator say over a human. Gosh, you know, I was looking into excited. No, the I didn't know the nuances of it. But so they can't they catch Gus right? And then on paper they arrest to other dudes. But according to Gus testimony, like those two dudes were not involved in it any actually planned it with four other people. So what I like about this? What I like about the movie is the movie takes the movie, ultimately takes that testimony is truth, you know, 'cause the movie shows him with with for other people. But but on paper like there were three people involved in those three people went to jail in essence jive realized that we were recording this like couple of days. Yes. It's the round the nursery. Yeah. Oh, man. I didn't recognize that right now. Yeah. Well, can I just want anyone gunshots? Like come on, man. Like what honor may twenty one gunshot? You know? We can say Hollywood I mean. I'm really saying this for the Oscars. They kademi because clearly the the wars are upon us like we're we're recording this the morning of the Oscars in Hollywood, which is very interesting. We're at another cross for. Spike Lee is up against another fuel good white movie. He is he's up because another good white. It's me. I'm just very curious for Hollywood to actually be fair. And by that, I mean, I know they've been trying to do these initiatives..

"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..

"I mean, there's so many things I've realized recently like again with that in the eighties happening was Philadelphia. When like didn't police bomb a building. I like this was like nineteen ninety one or something like that. I that is in this major starts. There's just so many things feel like again, like when I got to college people kept pushing a lot of the the black ills of the world like oh that was so long ago so long I don't thinking even like. Like. Recently. I mean, even when you had it was Clinton apologizing for the three strikes rule which put so many black people in jail. Like, oh, this is the nineties you just you just did that just Camila Harris just had to talk about it. And it was like you prosecuted so many black men and she breathes over. It was like you prosecuted so many black. It was like, you know, against about a political. Sorry. Sorry. Sorry. That's all Sorry. I don't know. John, john. He's talking about real. Was like, oh, Malcolm. Sorry. What did you did you? How does this Malcolm? Did you? What did you just say? Yeah. Yeah. I ever treat is the first time we in the same room. That makes knows he was just talking about like he's like he's like, oh is that that long ago, and I was like totally man like Malcolm X amount of years. What? How you is Wayne here. Malcolm X, you know, no. No just us saying the name. Emphasize, different parts of this ask is better be Malcolm X. What? Just. James? Jump. Right. Welcome to black men can't jump in. Hollywood by any means. Necessarily, okay. Also, no fan shaped you so hard. If you didn't get deeper. Like. Still have it. Necessary. Okay. Good.

Oh, my. All right. Peaking all this. You know 'cause he goes expecting that allow. This is a film review podcasts. We've you films of leading black actors. We talk about them in the context of race and diversity in Hollywood. That is what we do what you can see you frontal, right? I don't matter. They got they can feel it. All right. All right. This frown has happened. Right. Neil. James Gunn on a drug dealer hoodie right now. You're right. You're right. You're right. We are reviewing the nineteen Ninety-two Spike Lee joint, Malcolm X, starring Denzel Washington. This movie is three hours and twenty two minutes. That's not a joke solo is literally three hours and twenty two minutes should have been fifteen. Wait what three hours? Two thousand fifteen fifty no fifteen hours now. Wait, okay. Okay. Over jerry. So just so, you know, there's a lot of controversy surrounding this movie..

"If you walked up and said, you know, I am woke af and I just need the black lives matter. Hashtag blacklists theater like why would would've love why I would've loved that dialogue. It's just, you know, it's so painfully, like, can you get like me. The original magic, the regional white sin of slavery as Keith says. It's also, you know, this is not about you. Yeah, the civil rights struggle wasn't really to me. But it's like she wants a cookie and you just, you see so much of that in progressive circles than it's like you're well-meaning this, like we're all well-meaning people who like want everybody to know that we're well meaning, but maybe sometimes it's not about us and it just seems like so much of at least on social media, especially on Twitter where this is kind of a big circular discussion. Like the answer keeps coming back to, you can shut up and listen to whatever marginalized group is trying to talk right now that you're not a part of and it's something people have so much difficulty accepting. I just the fact that that Malcolm x. like boils down to basically like about three lives. Nothing. Nothing. Yeah. Well, you know her her question, which is a run on sentence or two. And then his answer the and I think if there's there's an echo of that in black klansman it's that there is a place for white allies, but it's a commitment. It's work and you're going to put yourself in danger and everything that you know, the privilege that you have is going to be on the line. If you wanna be ally, let me be sympathetic to the college student in this scenario and also make another point, which is that this is also a reflection of where knock amongst was ideologically at the specific times which is advocating for, you know the back going back to Africa. That's the of just seperation Evie separation of of the racist. So so in that sense, the really absolutely is no role. I wonder if that conversation again goes differently if it happens at the end of the film and and I think we could also see this character who comes up to him as being somebody who wants to be humble. I don't think I don't necessarily see her as is. Is seeking absolution. I, I think she's she's trying to to ask what she can do. You know, which I think is is about as humble as you could possibly a thing you could do in a situation like that and in is being rejected. I don't know that my wrong wrong. I emphasize with her utterly like, I absolutely. Exactly. Yeah, I know I, it's not that I don't sympathize. It's that I appreciate both the expression of his beliefs in that moment and just the absolutism of it for sure. Definitely. Like I, I appreciate that there's no compromise to it. And I mean, I do, I think you're right. I think that like as the film goes on, his perspective may change and you know, there's the line about like we can't have unity between the races until we have more black unity. Like basically, there's always since the civil rights era. There has been that like that wing of black nationalism. That's basically been like we can try to work on getting along with racist, but like I, we have to get our own house in order and you can't help us do that because that has to be it's about our identity. You know, we have to establish our identity before we can figure out how it relates to you. Could you just give space like I absolutely both is with her? Yeah, whether it should be avoided with Malcolm x.'s and leave very much voices. I, it's a story of someone's. Evolving thought, but it's never really someone seen the era of is ways like, oh, I had these backward to youth about white people then, but I'm much freer now. It's no, it's it's more about him, condemned a broader perspective. But how you doing in that moment is necessarily wrong and he's never treated as wrong as well. I mean, I like a lot of his evolution is around how the nation of Islam changes and his relationship to it early in his in his life and early in his career as a demagogue is appropriate to what it is at the time in addition to where he is with it, and that changes jumping back to add to white ally ship looking at black klansman..

"How listening to Therese speech affects his emotions, how he doesn't necessarily know who like who he wants to be, how he seems to delight in baiting Duke in particular, and he kind of hates the persona he's created, but he it, it tickles him that he's getting away with it. We're we're so much living in his emotions and we don't know where any of that comes from. And like at some point in the film, he tells either. Believe Patrice. It's been a little while since I've seen the film that like he really wanted to be a cop that he always wanted to be a cop and it's like this important piece of the puzzle that I wish I'd known earlier. I wish I had some idea who he is and you compare that with like watching Malcolm x. developed through each stage of his career. I am not saying the black Landsman would be improved by being three and a half hours. I don't need to see everybody his life. I just I wish I had some sense of who he was so I could better appreciate that divided identity. He's facing my feeling is that that uncertainty is feature rather than bugs. And this is something that connects black klansman with the early going of Malcolm x. of just how does an African American man. You know, navigate this world that's dominated by whites and wh what is his place in that environment? You know, it's so stark in both thumbs. It's so stark in black clansmen when you have this character who is entering all white police department, and then you have, you know, Malcolm x. who's starts the film by straightening his hair and dating, you know, white women and trying to become a part of that society a certain way. And I feel like that's a conflict that's so president, a lot of spike Lee's films and perhaps spike Lee's as someone who is become quite successful and has an upper middle class life and is having to figure out what his place in is in white society was places in black society and that dilemmas kind of played out pretty strongly both films. There's a lot we could talk about here when we're running running short on time, we have you have less tear of topics. We're not going to get to, including like styles. The easy thing to talk about. We're talking about that. We've touched on. Flourish here and there we should talk about, you know, guys as as four white people, I feel like you know, white people talked about enough. Restocking about white allies which play out in interesting ways in this film, Malcolm apps has that scene. We're, we're a well-meaning white college student walks to mock masters. I'm a, I'm a good person. I'm not racist like my ancestors. What can I do? And in he says, nothing and walks away and as an earnest college student nineteen Ninety-two, I thought that moment kind of kind of shocking in some ways. Like is there a place for for me in in this movie? And obviously the movies, much more more complicated than that. And Malcolm x. is thinking goes another directions later on, but but it is sort of like a white person trying to insert themselves into the story that that where they have no place I'd. That's how I see it. Now, I mean, the idea of black people white people working together is is in black craftsman as much more central. Thanks to the Ron and flips partnership, which I think is interesting too. That itself is kind of interesting contrast and obviously with their what. What does everyone think about the way these two films play out. White allies for block struggles. I mean, I love the Malcolm x. seen squirmy as hell. And it ties the film to the present moment in yet another way that whole scene would be no different..
