The biblical story of David and Goliath is probably the most well-known underdog story in the world.
Goliath is a giant warrior who battles a much-smaller shepherd boy, David. David shoots him with a stone and a sling right between the eyes, Goliath topples over, and David kills him.
David and Goliath is "a metaphor for improbable victories," Gladwell explained during a Ted Talk in September. "Why do we call David an underdog? Well, we call him an underdog because he's a kid, a little kid, and Goliath is this big, strong giant. We also call him an underdog because Goliath is an experienced warrior, and David is just a shepherd. But most importantly, we call him an underdog because Goliath is outfitted with all of this modern weaponry, this glittering coat of armor and a sword and a javelin and a spear, and all David has is this sling."
The first mistake history has made when retelling the tale of David and Goliath is to assume that David was a helpless boy who only had a wimpy slingshot to protect himself, Gladwell said.
That's because there were three types of warriors in ancient times: people who fought with slings and archery (David), foot soldiers who were good at up-close combat with swords (Goliath), and people on horseback.
Goliath was a foot soldier; David was a slinger. When put this way, and you note that Goliath and David were fighting from somewhat of a distance, it makes David's weapon choice seem smart. He's good at attacking with accuracy from afar.
It also makes you understand why Goliath was in trouble the moment David whipped out his sling. If David never got close to him, how could he attack and defeat him?
"Goliath is a sitting duck. He doesn't have a chance," Gladwell concludes.

Today's Radio Show/Podcast is called "A Piece of Blink."
Malcolm Gladwell redefined how we understand the world around us. Now, in Blink, he revolutionizes the way we understand the world within. Blink is a book about how we think without thinking, about choices that seem to be made in an instant-in the blink of an eye-that actually aren't as simple as they seem. Why are some people brilliant decision makers, while others are consistently inept? Why do some people follow their instincts and win, while others end up stumbling into error? How do our brains really work-in the office, in the classroom, in the kitchen, and in the bedroom? And why are the best decisions often those that are impossible to explain to others?

In honor of Malcolm X 90th birthday May 19th, we have been celebrating a man who helped pave the way for black people to create their own source of media. Had it not been for him helping to found Muhammad Speaks back in the 1960’s The Dymonds Radio Show would not exist. These black blogs would not exist. These black news outlets would not exist. We as Black people would NOT have our own media outlet PERIOD.
So lets not forgot how at one point and time we didn’t have the ability to voice our opinion on a national scale, now we do and majority of yall are NOT even taking taking advantage of this,
Tonight, we will continue to talk about the great man that Malcolm X was and we dedicate this show to him and Mike Brown (The unarmed young man who was shot in Ferguson by Darran Wilson) HAPPY BIRTHDAY MALCOLM X (May 19th) HAPPY BIRTHDAY MIKE BROWN (May 20th)
QUOTE OF THE NIGHT:
“Those of you who have gone to all these colleges and studied all kinds of journalism, yellow and black journalism, all you have to do is contribute some of your journalistic talent to our newspaper department along with our research department, and we can turn out a newspaper that will feed our people with so much information that we can bring about a real live revolution right here before you know it.” - From Malcolm X (El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz) speech in 1964 at the Founding Rally of the Organization of Afro-American Unity
