The report below says Shabazz is “said to be writing his biography” [sic].

What could he possibly write about? He’s all of 28, and the only thing he’s done in life was to murder his grandmother, Betty Shabazz. What would he call his “biography”? I Killed Grandma?

Malcolm X’s Grandson Reportedly Arrested, FBI Refuses to Provide Details
5 February 2013
News One

Malcolm Shabazz (pictured), the grandson of the late civil rights leader Malcolm X, was arrested by the FBI Monday while en route to Iran to attend a Hollywoodism conference, Press TV reports. The FBI is refusing to provide any details on the arrest and Shabazz’s whereabouts are unknown, Press TV added.

Shabazz, who was born in Paris to Malcolm’s X’s daughter Qubilah, was charged at the age of twelve in the death of his grandmother and X’s widow, Betty Shabazz, back in 1997. He pleaded guilty to manslaughter and arson in connection to her death. He served four years in a juvenile detention center and was released in 2001. Psychiatrists reportedly diagnosed him at the time of the murder with being psychotic and schizophrenic.

Shabazz’s alleged arrest is unfortunately coinciding with this past weekend’s Lifetime premiere of the long-awaited drama “Betty and Coretta,” which peers into the relationship between the wives of civil rights era icons Malcolm X and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The film stars Mary J. Blige as Betty Shabazz and Angela Bassett as Coretta Scott King. Feb. 21 marks the commemoration of Malcolm X’s death. He was 39 years old.

Shabazz, who is currently a student at New York City’s John Jay College of Criminal Justice, is also said to be writing his biography [sic].

Hello Mister Stix :

I must say thank you for this blog and welcome back after your Frankenstorm hiatus.

One thing that really baffles me about this blog though: the fact that you have so few if any comments. What do you attribute this to? I mean you are a veritable journalist with a well-grooved niche.

It's curious, I think. (I get few comments too over at

We were all a little worried about you going awol like that; it's nice to have you back.

Happy New Year and all my best.

Hi Arturo,

I'm a daily reader of this blog. Maybe I can answer your question, even though I can't speak for all of Mr. Stix' readers.

The truth is, some of the news presented here is so miserable, corrupt, and wicked, that those stories often seem to speak for themselves. Truth has a power all its own. I believe this is the reason that our nation's mainstream media has tried to bury stories like the Knoxville Horror (a phrase coined by Mr. Stix?), the crimes of Nkosi Thandiwe, etc.

In the past, I have occasionally commented on the news presented here. Sometimes I can offer some past personal experience which might be of use, such as what it's like to live in Austin, Texas (a liberal stronghold) or what it's like to be sucker-punched by a black guy (happened in my early 20s.) I have also sometimes expressed outrage and disgust at some particular acts of evil reported here. But more often than not, I "hold my tongue" by not writing.

As I wrote earlier, I really can't speak for the rest of the readers here. But I still appreciate Mr. Stix' truthful reporting of conditions in our country.

Mr. Stix, welcome back. I thought you had closed down after the storm because there seemed to be no activity here for a while.
