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?

Abibifahodie (Black Liberation),
The wicked agenda to undermine the progress of Afrikan people worldwide and ultimately commit genocide against our Race is becoming more and more public every day. No single european better exemplifies the demonsim of the white spirit than that of the notorious smallhat George Soros.
Not only has he been intentionally funding efforts to overthrow the Government of Zimbabwe and the Lion of Afrika, President Robert Mugabe; but he has also been undermining the development of the Afrikan continent for some time now.
Transcript of the report "Zimbabwe: Election Scenarios" that was compiled by the International Crisis Group, funded by George Soros.
Proof that Soros is funding this effort and is on the board of Directors or Trustees:
Not only is Soros working to undermine the Afrikan continent and destabilize Afrikan nations, but he is funding psuedo-Black, pro-homosexual organizations, like "Black Lives Matter," "Malcolm X Grassroots Movement", and many others. Now, they are fighting to undermine the "Straight Black Pride Movement (SBPM)."
Tune in on Monday night to enjoy this program and help to organize and fight Soros' attempts to undermine Zimbabwe's government and push "homosexuality" on the Black community.

What Would Nat, Garvey, or Malcolm do?
Join us Thursday June 25 at 9 pm EST as Alex and Asha discuss the historical legends of Black liberation, Nat Turner, Marcus Garvey, and Malcolm X. Not only in terms of their philosophy, actions, and achievements during their era, but also in terms of what would they do in regards to present day events.
How would Nat Turner, leader of what may have been the most influential slave revolt in American history, handle being a prisoner of the modern police state?
What would Garvey do to motivate a freedom movement among the super forgiving fans of integration?
And could Malcolm convince the modern Melanated man to give up his kool aid and cable diet?
Let's talk, debate, and discuss the impact these three men had on their day and the ramifications if they were alive during ours.
You can call in at (917)889-2830
You can tune in and listen.
And as always, keep it clean and keep it on point.
Join me today along with Malcolm where we will talk all things Politics and Sports and stay for the second hour where I will give readings.
Real Talk about Self-Esteem: Where does it come from, how it becomes damaged, and how to recover when it gets low
This is Part 2 of 5 discussions to meant to enlighten and empower women!
Self-esteem by definition is NOT what someone else thinks about you… it’s about how the individual thinks of themselves.
Negative thoughts without intervention or investigation of what is really the TRUTH about oneself often repeats itself which then can turn into a vicious cycle of unhealthy behaviors.
Please join the host Tamarra Causley Robinson and her panel: Sadiyah Malcolm, Erica Weiderlight, Pasha Cook, and Denise Patrick as they discuss where high self-esteem gets its start, what happens without the reinforcement of THE TRUTH about ourselves, and how to regain a healthy self-esteem.
Tamarra Causley Robinson is a Life and Career Transitions coach who helps women reconnect their voice to their true calling in life and career choices.
Sadiyah Malcolm is a rising Junior at Howard University, an aspiring professor, and the Founder of Sistas Elevating Learning and Healing (SELaH) based in Philadelphia.
