Malcolm was not “pro-violence” nor advocated for violence. ALL Afro American people need to read his autobiography or listen to more speeches. Because these assumptions are incredibly ignorant. He was advocating for self-defense, which is perfectly acceptable.
“He doesn’t call it violence when he lands troops in south Vietnam. He doesn’t call it violence when he lands troops in Berlin. When the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor, he didn’t say, ‘Get nonviolent’. He said, 'Praise the Lord, but pass the ammunition.’
When someone attacks you, when someone comes at you with a club, when someone comes at you with a rope, when someone comes at you with a gun, despite the fact that you’ve done nothing, he tells you 'Suffer peacefully’."
It’s disgusting that people think the appropriate reaction to being aggressed upon is to sit there and wait until the aggressor decides to stop. That’s not going to happen. Human beings live based on consequences. Those who speak "violence” only understand “violence”. Look at what integration and civil rights (didn’t) achieve.
Twenty million black people don’t even know their own name. Why? Because he took it away from you. Twenty million black people don’t even know their own language. Why? Because he took it away from you. Twenty million black people don’t even know the history of their ancestors. Why? Because he took it away from you. And if you try and tell them how thoroughly and completely you’ve been robbed, he says you’re teaching hate. That’s something to think about. Today, you’re coming out of college, you’re coming out of the leading universities, you’re trying to go in a good direction but you don’t know which direction to go in, and if somebody tries to take you right to the root of your problem, they say that that man’s a hate teacher. And then again if we tell you that Negroes are being hung on the trees, or being shot down illegally, unjustly and those Negroes should do something to protect themselves, you say, “You’re advocating violence.” The white man is tricking you. He’s trapping you. He doesn’t call it violence when he lands troops in South Vietnam. He doesn’t call it violence when he lands troops in Berlin. When the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor, he didn’t say get nonviolent. He said, praise the Lord but pass the ammunition. But when someone attacks you, when someone comes at you with a club, when someone comes at you with a rope, when someone comes at you with a gun, despite the fact that you’ve done nothing, he tells you, suffer peacefully. Pray for those who use you despite-fully. Be long-suffering. And how long can you suffer after suffering for four hundred years?

Sorry this one took me so long! I’m VERY VERY VERY excited about this episode and it was kinda hard to figure out what to tease because I WANNA TELL YOU EVERYTHING! But I can’t, so this will have to do for now.
In the pre-show talk Jacobs reiterated that it was never a triangle and essentially said he thinks we’ll like how it will ultimately turn out; possibly implying that it isn’t really finished or solved. (He implied something similar at the ACM taping too). He commented that everyone had seen the Ski Lodge spoilers, that this was never really a triangle, that a triangle would be way too simple and they don’t write things that easy or simple. It’s more nuanced. He’s pleased with how they did/are doing things. Then he went on to compare GM Bear to GM Game Night.
Maya takes tacos VERY SERIOUSLY. So much so that we get a Lucaya back jump.
Beary has gone missing. Riley thinks this is a huge emergency. Everyone else? Notsomuch.
At one point Zay has reason to ask Farkle and Lucas, “Why did you SWITCH?” 👀
Riley and Lucas finally have their first 100% alone scene! PRAISE THE LORD AND PASS THE AMMUNITION. They get some more candy/pretty wrapper symbolism.
Riley hugs Lucas!
Josh appears with his laundry in tow, and he ain’t nearly as mature and grown as people think he is…but there’s a “long game” reference.
Farkle. Topanga. Who you were + who you are + who you’ll become.
Zay is grateful to Maya for something she did for him and he wants to return the favor.
We get a flashback to see Auggie’s side of the Beary story.
Little Riley and Maya also appear.
Riley and Lucas do something nice for Maya.
DID I MENTION TACOS? BECAUSE TACOS.
