    Malcolm X From Mecca to Ferguson

    in Politics

    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.

    Malcolm X, The Message & The Assassination

    in Culture

    We have reach the 50th anniversary of brother Malcolm X death. So in this broadcast we want to highlight some info surrounding his life and assassination.


    Synopsis


    Born on May 19, 1925, in Omaha, Nebraska, Malcolm X was a prominent black nationalist leader who served as a spokesman for the Nation of Islam during the 1950s and '60s. Due largely to his efforts, the Nation of Islam grew from a mere 400 members at the time he was released from prison in 1952 to 40,000 members by 1960. Articulate, passionate and a naturally gifted and inspirational orator, Malcolm X exhorted blacks to cast off the shackles of racism "by any means necessary,". Brother Malcolm X broke with the group shortly before his assassination, February 21, 1965, at the Audubon Ballroom in Manhattan, where he had been preparing to deliver a speech.

    Growing Up X: Ilyasah Shabazz, Daughter of Malcolm X Shares Her Story

    in Women

    Being part of a religious community has its benefits, in terms of identity, beliefs, and a clear distinction between yourself and those who are "outsiders." What is it like growing inside a powerful religious organization that is feared by the government? How does your life change when your father is martyred, and becomes a larger than life historical figure? How does that affect your sense of purpose in life? How does that affect the friendships and personal relationships you form? How do you help people to see you the person and not you the symbol of whatever people perceive your father, mother, and religious organization to be? Is it possible to have a personal relationship with someone who is outside of the religious structure that shaped your identity? Ilyasah Shabazz, shares her story in the book "Growing Up X"

    John Carver Show - David and Goliath (Malcolm Gladwell)

    in Self Help

    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.
