Video review. A malcolm X interview

Again this is a YouTube video that is readily available to anyone.

The scene is malcolm x and two white men with placards in front of them.  The first question is directed by an elderly white man with “o’connor” as his placard who asks “what is your name? Is that your legal name, have you been to court to establish your name?”  Malcolm explains the problem of names, the camera pans over and o’connor is asleep and asks “would you mind telling me what your fathers last name was.”  At this point i have to keep going back to make sure i didnt miss anything but no he actually asked the question.  So moving on.  Jesus whats the deal with names?
