"What was his name Dr Thomas Thomas Five Times foster that's the reason why I said to a professor foster I'm glad when he came on, he told the story like a ghost because that's what a historian does. A historian just tells he just lays out the evidence. It's like a police report you saying an honest police report. This is what happened. Now how you feel about history don't give a fuck about how you feel this is what happened. Now when you when you get the first of all none of these people that. Talk. All that crazy stuff is done any research and they get their information from goofy people. So when you listen to what he's saying now think about all those other so-called quote unquote professors in people with PhD's at the end of the name on twitter they don't even know how to teach. He was teaching. That's what he was doing. So you know what I'm saying because that's not easy to do to recite information and make it make sense without giving your personal opinion because a Lotta Times with the personal opinion should be and always is real professors that do research history. I don't know we haven't done enough research that could be there could. That could be true. And and one thing that any noted historian will tell you is that when they do do a historical analysis, they will tell you that you know with all of the available evidence that we have. We can say this or this did not happen, but they also almost always give a disclaimer. Summarized by saying absence of evidence is not evidence of APPS. Bright colors. We just haven't found it yet, but for now, we can't conclude that we can't. We don't have enough information concluded this in fact happened. That don't understand agenda driven messages. So for the people. That are listening when you hear Malcolm X. Talk about the house. Negro the Field Negro when you see the Willie Lynch letter when you see people talking about quote Unquote Buk breaking, you have to also understand who these people are. That are giving you this information and using the context that exists reason why Malcolm make set I look I did the research and one of the things that I've found when it came to healthy growth field negroes that and this is again this is not on every plantation but what information that I found was the house slave headed worse That's what I've heard. Two people have to use the context of what slavery was if you were human being a black person who was enslaved, you were no big no more than a dog. So if you in the house, you're gonNA, hear to slam as all kinds of shit it. The slave masters say well, I'm going Outta town well, then you heard that and you go tell the field slaves hey, message I'm GonNa be gone if Y'all GonNa leave you better do it on this day 'cause you're GonNa be back on this day. That's how a lot of slaves got freaks. For Second Kim Let's let's marinate on what you just said. They treated them like Donald Oh yeah. In and I'm talking about really mentally these people really believed that are answered. Are you? Not Intelligent enough to understand so much sold that they actually said entire artillery would. They had no fear that these people could understand or do anything to to thwart that or do anything about it. That's. That you can't even just attribute that to arrogance..

Election Security is (mostly) Solvable
"Bruce Schneier is an internationally renowned security technologists. He teaches cybersecurity at the Harvard Kennedy School. I Co host Malcolm Bradwell talked with Schneier about the threats that loom over the vote this fall when we talk about elections being hacked. What does that mean I'm assuming that there are fifty different things that fall into that category. So we'll talk about the hacking the voting process. It's a process by which you cast your vote. We also talk about hacking the broader electoral process so when the Hack Democratic National Committee and posted a dump a lot of information online. They weren't hacking the vote. They were hacking the overall election process, so you can talk about fake news and propaganda and Astroturf, and those things hacked the greater process that conversation around the election. And that's one very separate branch, the other branches hacking the vote itself or the process by which you and I go to vote and there you have four places where you can affect things sort of affect the outcome. The first registration process. And we've read about and seen different hacks on the voting rolls so that when you go to vote, you can't at that point. This particular kind of hacking. Is it really about taking people off the rolls? A couple of things in California some years ago, people had their party. Affiliation changed from Republican to Democrat. You can change the address of somebody, so they go to vote. And they were told to go to a different Pole, and some of these are easy. Many states have. Online systems to change your registration aren't well indicated. Others is to Pull people off the voting rolls. Others are to erase the voting rolls. What happens if we get to election day? In a certain state in the voting rolls don't work, and we don't know why, so a lot of things against the voting rolls. The second is the thing we talk about all the time. which is vote itself. Is Your vote recorded accurately? The third. Is the tabulation process matter how you vote? There's this sort of automated sort of manual process by which the numbers out of each machine get increasingly aggregated the numbers in the the building the numbers in the precinct, the numbers in the town of the city, the state all the way up to the national, if if that matters. And then the last which I think people don't think about a lot is the reporting process and we have seen, and this was something that we think was thwarted in in twenty eighteen. Erroneous reporting. where the number right, but the press release says the opposite. Of those four things that you've identified. Can we rank them in order of? Seriousness, which is the one that worries you the most I I would not rank them. I think ranking is is dangerous. I think they're all risky know. If I'm a chaos Asian. How did what's the level of difficulty involved in spreading chaos in the American electoral system? It'll depend on the technology. So we can talk about voting machines and some are more secure than others. I vote Minnesota. We use optical scan voting I have a piece of paper. I feel an ovals, and then that is tallied. Use A computer that is the gold standard right is a voter verifiable paper audit trail. Now is real hard to mess with that and you can mess with the tabulating, but there's a paper backup. You can do a recount. Some states vote on touchscreen machines. We've had times. Those machines have opened up and that it's been zero zero zero zero. What does that mean? No votes to no votes. Something went wrong today. Those machines are a lot worse than you want them to be. The company's very secret, but there have been audits at Def Con. Hacker conference couple years ago, we had a bunch of machines in voting village and they were all hacked. Company say they're all flying. They're often. Online is a lot of ways to to go after those machines
Election Security is (mostly) Solvable
"This is solvable. I'm Jacob Weisberg. So you can talk about fake news and propaganda and ASTROTURF ING. All of those things hacked the greater process that conversation around the election. Election meddling undermines with sits at the foundation of American. Democracy confidence in our voting system. Whether hacking takes the form of masking the original source of a campaign message to make it seem like it comes from the grass roots, so called ASTROTURF. For disseminating intentionally false. It all leads Americans to question the legitimacy of the democratic process. In Two thousand sixteen, we discovered russian-backed hackers will responsible for disinformation campaigns in response Congress directed three hundred eighty million dollars to the fifty states to boost election security, but did it really help. Is it useful to compare electoral outcomes to poll results? You're not gonNA believe it right. The problem of voting as opposed to any other computer security mechanism. Is that after the fact? It's part. Is there a problem with the expectation? We have then that the a winner of election ought to be declared immediately, so yes, a slower process would enable us to do more checking before announcing anything. The American people don't like that. Even going to sleep before knowing is bad. With increasingly long election fees I'd sleep better on election hearing the Mike candidate one, but wouldn't we all sleep better knowing that whatever the result it was guaranteed to be accurate. The tech is real tech assault. None of what you've described is exotic or untried. Why is it been so difficult to convince other states to to put in place some of these already available voting techniques. Cause the problems are not technical, the problems or political.

How to become a malware analyst
"You started out in kind of this this you know sort of loose umbrella organization the security. Checkpoints and stuff? But obviously it was a big jump between what you were doing there and moving up to a CTO and infrastructure manager, and so forth says you started configuring networks for small businesses so like. What were some of the major sort of stepping stones where you went from? This area of knowledge, and then you've got you know this this much higher in this tire. What were some of the sort of transformative things in your career that got you to where you are now where you're starting on companies, and so forth yet so when I said twenty, three, twenty, four, twenty, five, remember the age now and one of the big challenges in the olden days I should was Maui mostly through email arms. It was a constant challenge seems we would buy foul would say that I would change it with. Would by Boris you stop with the answer virus, but. Announcing to be constantly constant challenge to the businesses How could we start now at Einstein, which was the best dog. Back then as well coming into the network and we kept buying Butson kept going on today to see asking for more money. And why? Why did you spend this much money in the digital and so? From that? I decided that I wanted to follow in the logical me was. I don't think there should be a business issue. Technology issue on if I was running a technology company. I have ends do whatever I wanted, and then the baton. We could change your bowl so I saw saw company. Hold at sleep. At which wasn't enough security today and the idea was was to. Move Email security teams. Kyle. which everyone looked to me like headset. Quarantine is selling. It's good to get quarantined in the cloud. That was the mentality that unto make it a Subscriber Solution I. I thought that company. As a see, I became Iras, we took investment. And We grew fast not completely I in Dot com date to the to the embezzles on not later became a think fuse mail, which is now by viper that still going somewhere. That's GONNA. Fifteen Years Eissa. Nice legacy! From that when I Got Very involved in some government stuff some some logic at the right I saw A. It was the time was inspired by security advisement. Advise up a full, many large companies and. I helped trying secure environments in addition a lot of recovery ransomware Congress opponent came after the next is. A lot of breach recovery's reach detection I'm cigarette. And one of the things, we always still route throughout my twenty s I guess ninety now getting more than twenty nine thousand eight is. It's a waste Maur so it's whether it's somebody opening an email attachment whether it's. Pushing out like wannacry into seventeen or glass. To Wasting Maui, that's the pain point, everybody. Okay. Well, let's let's jump right into. That did so. Our topic today, specifically ransomware, but malware in general, so we've. We've spoken about ransomware on on past episodes. We had a great episode of a while back. We might release it with a Christian beak of McAfee who else talked about the no more ransom organization, but certainly as you say Malcolm. Malware ransomware aren't going away anytime soon, and they're always sort of. Staying one step ahead of Cybersecurity, expert experts, and you know sort of counter, a malware methods, and so forth I've always. We're always putting new sort of Maur of the week up on our on our interest resources site, and all sorts of crazy things, things young gap jumping and all these new technologies that that. you know added to things so What is the state of ransomware at the moment? Do you think it's gone down? Stayed Up, stayed the same in the age of Covid nineteen people. You know being decentralized locations and working from home and things like that is that make people more or less susceptibility thinker it so I know. Unfortunately it's gone up till nine extreme level at Bobi the highest job we seem. In the last three years. It's happened in the last three months. Okay, I. That stems from various various things one is we've now. The premature is now gone where. Nitty gone, fall, but the people who are outside liver attendance, being more technical savvy sales guys us, not pulsing used to get with technology and the threats. Now we've taken coal centers outside of the rental. We've native. People who pay lowest salaries outside of the purposes of they've lost. A little bit permits security.

Lack of Accountability for Police Violence is Solvable
"This is solvable. I'm Jacob Weisberg. There is a lack of accountability for police, violence and one part of. Solving that is to give federal prosecutors more tools, so they can actually prosecute this cases. Approximately a thousand people killed during police encounters in the United States every year. And in fact, that number is held steady for nearly twenty years. Around half of those killed or white. Black Americans are more than twice as likely to die at the hands of police. They are killed disproportionately to their overall representation in the population. I'm thinking about. Say The shooting of Philander Castille. CAPLESS Tamir Rice twelve year, old boy, who was shot and killed by an officer when playing in a park in Cleveland. How do we achieve racial justice while protecting public safety? Lawyer Cheer Baynes believes the federal. Government has a key role to play. What exactly would you like to see? Happen there for Congress to lower the intense standard from willfulness recklessness, so that it would be a federal crime recklessly deprive someone of their rights under color of law to recklessly use excessive force for all the Americans who died during police encounters in less than two percent of cases, does an officer end up being charged with a crime? When you were at Doj how many times did specific language of willful thwart possible prosecution of of an officer? You think you felt a done something wrong. Routinely, that was the biggest barrier. It was always the central concern. Kira. Who's devoted his career to ending impunity for officers who commit crimes against citizens thinks we can fix this. The problem of lack of accountability for police violence is solvable. Cheering Baines is the director of Legal Strategies de Moth a racial justice organization before that he worked at the US Department of Justice, serving a senior counsel to the head the civil. Rights Division, that's the division that investigated. Ferguson Missouri and sued the city for unconstitutional policing and court practices. Baynes Co wrote the Ferguson report. Malcolm Bradwell spoke to Baynes about what needs to be done to solve the persistent problem of police impunity at the national level. To critical components are lowering the intense standard for the federal government to prosecute active excessive force criminally and using federal consent decrees to address systemic misconduct. You've been working on this question of how to make police better for quite some time right? Yes, actually. It's been an issue that's been. An issue that I've been distressed by want to do something about since I was a young kid. Actually the Rodney King case happened in the beating of Rodney King. One thousand, nine, hundred, one I was ten years old, and there are a lot of high profile incidents in the hundred ninety s with I'm dirty, yellow Louima and many other high profile cases of police violence police killings. Finish cared about as a high schooler for sure I can remember that were you in high school Chelmsford High School? It's a small town in Massachusetts next to the city of Lowell, maybe about thirty thousand thirty five thousand people. It wasn't like you were. LIVING IN LA or living in the Bronx where Ahmadou was shot, it was you were these were instance miles away. That nonetheless caught your attention. Absolutely these are national stories and I was very interested in. Civil Rights history even civil rights law. The role of lawyers in the civil rights movement. I think maybe juxtaposed that history and the principles underlying that movement with what I was seeing. Play out in terms of police violence in the country. At that time, and actually can remember. An organization called the stolen lives project that would collect information about the people who have been killed by police, disproportionately young black man. That is something that I recall, so. It's something I've. been working on for a long time ended up working on that some more in law school, focusing on it, and then it on my first job after clerking for a federal judge was to actually prosecute police misconduct cases including police violence. How early on you decide that? You wanted to become a lawyer depressingly early? Han actually I think I thought in high school. That would become a lawyer. What did you think of that decision? Well I'm an Indian kid and the child immigrants and so. I think a lot of people in that boat might relate. My mother wanted me to be a doctor. That would million other Indian children. Yeah Yeah. It's a common refrain and. Short of being a doctor, a lawyer was pretty good, so. But you know my family wasn't focused on these issues. These weren't the issues that they confronted him and they cared about it. In the sense research, generally aware my grandmother used to describe all this work as a community service or volunteer work and I'd have to actually get paid to do this job.

Unjust Systems of Power are Solvable
"Were excited to share with you. A new season of conversations with leaders and change makers about how to solve the world's biggest problems. This is an extraordinary moment. We're living through global pandemic, and in the United. States were experiencing the most powerful protest movement of my lifetime against police, brutality and racial injustice. It's a time of great possibility. Our Society seems to be open to the kinds of moral and social transformations that were much harder to imagine before the virus, and before the killing of George. Floyd! For this are second season I'll be joined again by by Pushkin. co-founder Malcolm well and journalist and friend and Applebaum a Pulitzer Prize winning historian and staff writer at the Atlantic. To start this season, we're focusing on two problems racial injustice and the twenty twenty election. We can have an election that is participatory. With robust. In twenty twenty justice isn't blind. We have to be far more critical and thoughtful and have that Lens. On today's episode, we hear from an international expert on non violent protests. Let's saw this one big issue. Let's more racial equality. Great to look at our narcissism of small differences later. When the outcry went up over George Fluids, killing peaceful demonstrators took to the streets in Minneapolis then in other cities across the country and across the globe, and a problem arose. It's a problem. We've seen elsewhere. Bad actors outliers with destructive agendas overtaking the news coverage by engaging in retaliatory violence. This isn't a new issue. It's one peaceful. Protesters have long faced in south. Africa Egypt Ukraine Tunisia and during occupy Wall Street. Of Popovich is a Serbian activist and scholar, social movements, organizers from around the world have turned to him for advice about how to strengthen and propel their movements. Popovich, as the Executive Director of the Center for Applied Nonviolent Action and strategies or canvas. He literally wrote a user's manual for successful. Social Change. Our host and Applebaum lives in Poland. She spoke to Popovich from his home in Belgrade Serbia. Here's their conversation. My Solo bill is to create social change through the successful strategic nonviolent movement so surgeon. Why is this your solvable? In other words? What makes this issue personal to you? While first of all I started getting better young on my freshman year on the university, we were faced with a with a crazy regime in Belgrade their nineties any kind of choices, you can fight three concisely. I guess I was stubborn. Police stadiums fight together. Together with a group of France who launched the movement, called out four, which is a Serbian for resistance, and then built from eleven people to seventy thousand people, eventually getting rid of the best guy lawsuits, and I kind of addicted to the idea of the social change. Group People Power movements since you originally began odd for you and your friends without any experience. You had run protests before you had an organized movement before. And now you're able to advise people. So how did you begin thinking through the problem in the beginning was just spontaneous, or did you plan first of all? We started by doing it without planning. Which is why it took us nine years to actually do it so ninety two. We did a little bit of the of locking ourselves in the campuses, seeing east kind of stop. It didn't work because it didn't enroll the rural. Deny, six seven lot of people were mobilized. To smaller places, we protested for one hundred days day by day by day. This refigure out that everyday protest is probably not the best way to do it because it's very exhausting, so we figured out that it is unity thing that we are message. Most of the protesters were getting wall in the protest in, and they say we are too busy to plan so a learning by doing and making mistakes is actually the best way to do stop, but it's very slow so strongly. Advocate to the people start reading books and learn from other people's mistakes, rather than learning from there on. How did you break it down into solvable pieces How should people who WANNA create? Change think. Think about that for a successful protest. You need so much more than the protests. You need an idea what should be different with the cold vision of tomorrow. Then you need to share this vision with different groups. Then you need to work with people. You're not normally alike and probably disagree on many other stuff to really get to the change, so need to take a really sober. Look at the groups you need. And then then we dealt politicizing indulging groups, and then you try to figure out how you work together for the change that benefits everybody because we talked to stand. Social change is a very kind of selfish of for matinee, people and the trick indistinct stinks is. A unifying proposition, which is the smallest common denominator from the groups you want to mobilize and very orchid. You want to agree on what you agree. Also went to read what you disagree, so this is not about the things that that are different among us. We leave this thing for layer, but let's solve this one big issue. Let's get rid of of communism. Let's get rid of luxury L.. Let's make more racial equality, and so on and so forth, and then we are going to look at our narcissism of small differences later.

"Took my master's degree in prison over the course of six and a half years in fact my old burglary hang out is just outside side this campus. I live like an animal store are used drugs. 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.
"malcolm" Discussed on Denzel Washington Is the Greatest Actor of All Time Period
"They might know but it's spike. Lee is not trying to hide the message. No he's not trying to say he wants. You know this is not a movie about the past which is why it starts on rodney king yeah and it's not now now that the movies over go do something like that you just like it was sad in like no no we need to take this message forward yeah and then it ends with the song by the most popular rap group in america at the time arrested development was. I don't remember anything movie. You couldn't memory i saw during the credits which one is it is it. I don't know it's like it's like they recorded. A new song. For low must've done is is like this just because they seemed a little weird and i was a little weird yeah. They had a good run smart kind of hip hop <hes> yeah they was taking the place on and then i forget reverend revolution okay yeah yeah. I don't remember everyday people that locks it into nineteen ninety two is that the it might be because they add on hold on hold on hold on hold on this is still malcolm. X's page right kevin that you have hanging up. This is we're talking kevin in the booth. Nut richard pryor was briefly attached to star in the show. What wow anyway in the early production stages like a real early what as malcolm x. come on now. I mean we're talking about the seventies when i see what you say okay. It's just an interesting little tidbit guys. I mean tribute should be rates this movie. I don't you know it could anybody. It could be anything. I don't know we'll be opinion of it. I think everybody enjoyed it. I mean so this is one of those things where it's like. You know for for me for my money. This is the best this is the number one denzel washington movie pick like if you have to if aliens or coming from another planet may go show us the best ends wash yesterday movie yeah i go malcolm even though as we said he's better than the movie yeah but you but that's what makes it awesome but that's what i mean like this guy is the key is he is raising movies when he's actually raising the level new level that most actors can't even imagine getting to you and he had the pressure shoulders of play like there's not one role. Tom hanks can be cast in where he feels..
"malcolm" Discussed on Based On a True Story
"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..
