Black History Fail: Malcolm X’s Daughter Arrested, Charged With Identity Theft And Forgery

- By Bossip Staff

Damn, we were just celebrating the man’s legacy yesterday and this heffa goes and pees in the Kool-Aid, SMH.

The daughter of slain civil rights leader Malcolm X is in jail facing extradition to New York on charges of forgery and identity theft.
Malikah Shabazz , 45, was arrested on Friday night after police were called to a home in Mars Hill, North Carolina, because a child wasn’t attending school. Shabazz’s 13-year-old daughter is home-schooled.
One on the scene, Madison County Sheriff’s Office said investigators found that Shabazz had several outstanding warrants from New York, that include charges for grand larceny, forgery and identity theft, said Chief Deputy Michael Garrison.

Shabazz is the daughter of Malcolm X, who was also known as El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz. She was born months after Malcolm X was assassinated exactly 46 years ago yesterday.
She is now scheduled to appear for an extradition hearing on Tuesday.
Her lawyer Sean Devereux said the warrants appear to be from 2009 but that she was never served with the papers.

Her lawyer is unsure of the circumstances of the charges because prosecutors in New York have known her most recent address in South Carolina, where she owned a home and had a driver’s license.
‘The notion that she fled New York is really not the case,’ said Devereux.
He said Shabazz is not fighting extradition and is eager to go to New York and deal with the matter, not least because her 13-year-old daughter is now in the custody of the local Department of Social Services.

As much as Malcolm X did for this country in terms of civil rights, he was no stranger to illegal activities. That said, looks like his apple fell right next to his tree…

Why does it look like shes smiling??? Whatever…

    • Jada

      I was thinking the same thing. Probably, I think there is only one bad seed out of them. (The boy was upset about his mother’s abandonment, he was living with his grandmother, and started a fire for attention)

    it was said that all his children suffers from mental illness and it appears that his children are not praticing black muslims..malcolm x was a great man and spoke alot on black issues in america and yes as young man, he was incarnated for a few years,then became a black muslim,and studied with louis farrakhan..

  • Fan of the BE-BE Store

    I also believe this woman has deep un-resolved issues stemming from the lost of her father. She never even got a chance to know him. and she is and has probably gotten some pain that she really needs to get out. But, she’s going about it the wrong way as all of the readers already know. I feel for this sister, and hope that someone reaches out to her or better yet she reaches out to get some help. So, she can put the hurt to bed once and for all. I am sending this out, because I can only feel what she maybe dealing with.

  • Supa_sexy

    All I gotta say is her daddy is rolling around in his damn grave. I mean I know she ain’t Malcolm X so we shouldn’t expect the same character trait as him but at least act like you got some damn sense and not do foolishness as she has done to bring shame to her father’s name.
    I’m not bashing nor hating just stating my opinion. Follow and twit me at NaturalbeautyEP

    This a a crime, there is a victim. Another black woman!!!! Why do we always forget black victims of crime????

  • Kevin

    This is the crazy daughter who has always been nothing but trouble. Her crazy son is responsible for the death of Malcom’s widow. This woman looks insane.

    • lily(bk'sfinest)

      Fact check: Qubilah Shabazz is the mother of Malcolm Shabazz, the grandson of Betty Shabazz,who started the fire in her apartment which led to her death.

  • Naji

    Brother Malcolm did nothing for civil rights. He was focused on human rights and development of Africans as confident, aware, and independent individuals. Put that civil rights stuff with the NAACP. God Bless his soul.
