Since Enon's church picnic was rained out, my crew is coming here. I'm watching Malcolm X on WHYY as I'm preparing some food (on the menu...bbq chicken wings. beef ribs, fresh string beans and red potatoes, pasta salad w/broccolli, all colored peppers and carrots, potatoe salad, deviled eggs and fruit salad. and oh yeah...homemade sangria since its at my place!)
This is the movie Denzel should have won the oscar for. My mom used to have this joke that he played that part so well that when they show clips of the real Malcolm X she wondered who he was.. WHERE ARE OUR 10,000 BLACK MEN?
The best part of the movies is when Malcom realizes that he put too much faith in the man/messenger (Elijah Muhammad) and knows that God or Allah or whatever you call your creator IS The Real Answer.
On of my mom's favorite quotes comes to mind:
THE MORE THINGS CHANGE, THE MORE THEY STAY THE SAME.
Is this really 2009 or am I in a time warp?
