Dr. Gates On Whitey: "Malcolm X Was Talking About the White Man Was the Devil… It Was Great"
LAMB: At one point you had a line in there, something to the effect, “My mother despised white people.”
GATES: My mother hated white people.
LAMB: All her life?
GATES: Probably. I didn’t know until — in 1959 we were watching Mike Wallace’s documentary called “The Hate that Hate Produced.” It was about the Nation of Islam and I couldn’t believe — I mean, Malcolm X was talking about the white man was the devil and standing up in white people’s faces and telling them off. It was great. I mean, it’s what black people did behind closed doors, but they would never do it in — I mean, they were too vulnerable to do it, say, where they worked, at the paper mill or downtown, as we would call it. And here was a guy who had the nerve to do that, and I think if I had been a character in a cartoon, my eyes would have gone Doing! — like this. I couldn’t believe it. As I sat cowering in a corner of our living room, I glanced over at Mama and her face was radiant. I mean, this smile — beatific smile started to transform her face. And she said quite quietly, “Amen.” And then she said, “All right now,” and she sat up and she said, “Yes.”
And she loved Malcolm X and she loved what the Muslims were doing.
No wonder Dr. Gates and Barack “White Folks Greed”” Obama are such good friends.
Dr. Gates said today that he hopes to use his verbal assault on the white police officer to improve fairness in the criminal justice system.
