Video Media Staying informed is half the battle...


Desrciption: Rare color footage of Malcolm X appearing on a television show in Chicago called "City Desk" on March 17, 1963. "My father didn't know his last name. My father got his last name from his grandfather and his grandfather got it from his grandfather who got it from the slavemaster. The real names of our people were destroyed during slavery. The last name of my forefathers was taken from them when they were brought to America and made slaves, and then the name of the slavemaster was given, which we refuse, we reject that name today and refuse it. I never acknowledge it whatsoever."

Title:  Man, these comments ...
Comment:  Man, these comments are a fucking disgrace. I'm not dishonoring Malcolm X, but seriously, you disgust me. I'm not a King fan or some crap, but he admitted he was wrong. I think he's a more honorable man for doing so. People stick with the statemtn "By Any Means Necessary", but the same pieces of shit who stuck with it are the ones who killed Malcolm X.

Comment:  Educated and Intelligent blk ppl like myself don't want to play the guilt game on whites nor do we want a free handout of any kind. I think this country was built on the bare backs of slaves and minorities and that is how this country got so insanely Wealthy. You will be hard pressed to find any filthy rich families that in some way did not benefit from slavery or indentured servitude or cheap labor; I say all three because some ppl will try and nitpick and try and debate the meaning of the word "SLAVERY" and or Labor. Progressive blks like myself could care less about a bloody apology. We care more about a level playing field. Slavery and miseducation has put blks so far behind that in 2014 we as a race are still trying to catch up. Maybe reparations are in order for the direct descendants of slaves. Blacks have been so SYSTEMATICALLY CUT OFF from their heritage and past that most of us are still lost in this wilderness and have NO ROOTS. I traced my family tree back and it STOPS at my people being owned by slave masters in south carolina. My family are a direct result of black females being GANG RAPED by their masters and owners. Even my name today is reflective of those facts. Blacks still live under the weight of that even today, and the system is still geared toward KEEPING US DOWN although some like me make it through the cracks.

Comment:  Since the dawn of history the Negro has owned the continent of Africa – rich beyond the dream of poet’s fancy, crunching acres of diamonds beneath his bare black feet and yet he never picked one up from the dust until a white man showed to him its glittering light. His land swarmed with powerful and docile animals, yet he never dreamed a harness, cart, or sled. A hunter by necessity, he never made an axe, spear, or arrowhead worth preserving beyond the moment of its use. He lived as an ox, content to graze for an hour. In a land of stone and timber he never sawed a foot of lumber, carved a block, or built a house save of broken sticks and mud. With league on league of ocean strand and miles of inland seas, for four thousand years he watched their surface ripple under the wind, heard the thunder of the surf on his beach, the howl of the storm over his head, gazed on the dim blue horizon calling him to worlds that lie beyond, and yet he never dreamed a sail.” — Charles Darwin While I'm not racist, nor do I support racism.. I will not however lie, or restrain from citing that which is true. - Me, right now. How's that for history?

Comment:  How did they figure out what was their real religion? And also if he was a real Muslim then he should have known the Muslim, christian and Judaism's God are the same. Also calling the plane crash was act of allah's is a stupid thing to say. How did he figured it out? Good for him for fighting for human rights back then.

Comment:  The irony is surnames like Murphy, O'Connor and Kelly would likely be derived from white Irish slaves, not slave masters.

Comment:  This illustrates the low status African-Americans had in the U.S. in the 60s. Naming yourself by whatever name you or your family choose is such a basic right it is even available under a monarchy. Yet this interlocutor acts as if Malcolm X does not possess this right.
