When someone who has made a great impact on media like Mike Wallace passes away, everyone takes a moment to pay their respects and remember the good. Deemed as “the researcher” postmortem, maybe he was too young in his career when he introduced us to Malcolm X and the Nation of Islam, or maybe it was that point in US History, but I watched portions of “The Hate That Hate Produced”. It was 22 years ago in either a contemporary history class or sociology class. I had the same wonderful teacher for both classes. Mr. Mentzer, may he rest in peace, taught me to question, and it was my first true exposure to critical thinking. I remember him calling “The Hate That Produced Hate” yellow journalism with an extremist view. I remember listening to him talk about being in DC for Dr. Martin Luther King’s “I Have a Dream Speech” and emphasizing to our class not to be influenced by only one piece of the history puzzle.

I didnt know he died, he was a great guy. I once watched a documentary where he talked about how he went through depression for years.
