SORT BY Relevancy
As Saturday, February 21st. will mark the 50th anniversary of the assassination of Brother/Minister/Revolutionary Malcolm X.
Yet given his magnanamous impact, it was as if this was only yesterday.
A rough and horror-filled childhood and aimless, early adulthood, set into motion his pathway to becoming a most excellent helper of the Hon. Elijah Muhammad and the NOI.
But, it was the challenges that came with such a responsibilty and in many ways, a manifestation of what we as black people in America have become after slavery, that caused the bitter and unfortunate separation from the NOI.
But being the man he was, molded in the finest steel and timbre, Malcolm remained committed to the struggle for Freedom, Justice and Equality, here in the DIaspora and abroad, in his desire to unify the Inigenous African with the African-American.
On Critical Discourse, we will examine his life and legacy, never overlooking his devotion to Al-Islam añd his global, de-colonized mind, which even today, far outshadows the host of present-day charlatans, passing as leaders, commissioned to lead our people into the morass of spiritual, moral and intellectual bondage.
For what we learn about the life and death of Omawale Malik Shabazz, helps us to appreciate our own past, present and future.

FIFTY years ago today my father, Malcolm X, was assassinated while speaking at the Audubon Ballroom in New York City. I think about him every day, but even more in the last year, with the renewed spirit of civil rights activism after the tragic events in Ferguson, Mo., on Staten Island and in countless other parts of the country. What would he have to say about it?He would also critique the activists’ rhetoric itself. I imagine he would applaud the “Hands Up” gesture for its sheer dramatic effect, but also critique it as rank capitulation that ironically accommodates the very goal of police brutality — to intimidate and immobilize black citizens, forcing them into a defenseless posture if they hope to survive.

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.
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
