Controversial Malcolm X Biography Adapted for Drama Series


In 2011 the late historian Manning Marable caused a firestorm after his Malcolm X biography 'Malcolm X: A Life of Reinvention' included claims the iconic civil rights leader had been an occasional gay for pay prostitute during his days as a street hustler [click here if you missed that].

Now the book is being turned into a series...

According to reports an independent studio called Critical Content has optioned the book for a drama series.

Details are scarce and the casting choices have not been made public, but the studio also plans to film a Malcolm X documentary that will focus on his legacy following his assassination.

If course it is - this satisfies 2 agendas at once

1. Destroy black male figure / legacy
2. Push the homosexual agenda

They are trying so hard to kill us - kill us as a people, kill our spirit, kill our values and morals.

I can't imagine how bad it must suck to be them...

Black America is the most homophobic and closed minded. So who exactly is the target audience? This wont end well....

You sir are so full of shit. The white right wing are racist, bigots, and homophobic. So don't put that shit on us.

Take your gay ass over to storm front and see how well your gay ass will be welcomed. Those crackers will run you out of there with burning tiki torches

Some people are really hung up on that alleged aspect of his life. So they really think they have enough material on this man go create a series. I hope it fails, but since sex sells it will do alright if it ever makes to daylight.

No yo ass did no throw the tiki torch shade LMAO. That made my morning. Tiki came out against those pink supremacist fools and using their torches for racist fuckires. As for this Malcom X fuckery. Black dollars and black viewership talks, stop letting these idiotic and insecure krakkas trigger you, just boycott that shit. Like we did Gods of Egypt krakkas playing Osiris lol it the recent on with Tom Cruise some clear broad playing Amunet. I need these troglodytes to stay in their lanes. They mad cause Malcom X hated the liberal yt?, him and his yt conservative brother of of the same. One a wolf the other a Damn fox. Yt America will fall on the sword of white supremacy. I am so happy that buffoon is in the white house making white America look real fucked up and crazy on the world stage. Not that them hoes didn't before, now it's just an all out circus. You have the power to pay them dust. Don't get mad. Just ignore their shenanigans.

don't fall for it Black folks. they're hoping to play on some black folks (mostly overly religious folks who listen to white folks too much ) homophobia. just say so, malcolm's work/speeches/activism still stands. just like maya angelou once worked as a prostitute, it does not negate her amazing work later. white folks are just trying us to turn our backs on one of our greatest leaders.

@1:36pm. Exactly. It makes no difference. IF it is true, it's who he was. What's important, and what people want to down play, is who he became; an unafraid, outspoken, morally-correct, wise brutha. And it's irks them to no end.

They really are trying very hard to push the gay agenda in the black male community aren't they? Why the need? Hmmm

I never understood why people are so fascinated by someone's sexual role. Who cares who he did or didn't have sex with. It about what he did for the people. Also why is Rosa Parks not as honored as MLK or Malcom X??

Malcolm is one of my heroes. I will NOT support anything that diminishes his contributions to the black community in a time that was more tumultuous than now. He paid with his life.

Spike and Denzel already did a respectful movie about Malcolm. FUCK WHITE PPL AND COON ASS NEGROES.

The ancestors will rally around the memory of Malcolm and prevent the erosion of the first humans.

And who the f do they think is their market for this? They think black folks are gonna watch this direspectful mess? And they know white folks ain't gonna watch nothin about Malcolm. So don't worry. This sh*t will be DOA.
