Keep Your Eye on Malik Shabazz

'Khallid Muhammad Makes the Jews Pee in Their Pants at Night'

On WABC-TV's Sunday program Like It Is, Laura Sydell, a valuable reporter for WNYC radio, said that she had spoken with a couple of dozen youngsters in Harlem and hardly any of them knew anything specific about the march itself. Most hadn't even heard of it.

And as you may have noticed, there were few teenagers at the march.

As Giuliani's troops rushed the stage, thereby provoking violence, Khallid Muhammad, after provoking even more violence, disappeared to save himself. As Malcolm X never would have. Malik Zulu Shabazz--Dan Barry reported in the Times--also fled, "carrying a plastic bag of cash contributed by the crowd."

W. C. Fields would have loved that scene.
