While you (and most of America) were watching the Final Four on CBS tonight, 3 of my foot soldiers and I went to YouTube to watch/study Minister Farrakhan’s recent press conference. As is always the truth, the minister gives information, facts and an insight that no other Black Leader will dare attempt to. Most of you will disagree with what you’ll hear and that is expected.
For those who have unchained themselves and unafraid of truth this 2 hours is for you. Do yourself a favor and sit down and get your pen and paper out to write done notes for future reference.
Almost all of us are repulsed by the rhetoric and tactics of supremest, nationalistic or ethnocentric racists such as the likes of the KKK, ethno-cleansers or Neo-Nazis organizations but do we apply the same standard to groups like La Raza Unida, the New Black Panthers, or the Nation of Islam?
Hate breeds fear, contempt, division, scapegoats and ultimately consumes itself:
For the KKK or the Neo-Nazis it was the Negro, the Jews or what ever other group unlike them but today we rationalize the other side of the coin with “the white man”. Same rant different flavor!
Notice how hatred literally blinds people and causes them to rationalize the defense of tyrants, acts of terrorism, scapegoating and call it self-determination, liberation or self-defense, sadly some of you swallow this hook line and sinker as I once did. It is time to critically examine the fruits of these purveyors of hate and division and see them for who they really are.
The Honorable Min. Farrakhan had more than harse criticism for Pres. Obama in the following video over America’s policy towards Libya. He offers the president a warning and cautions him to act wisely in that part of the world.
Does Min. Farrakhan have a point in analyzing America’s foreign policy? What about how WE should feel and respond as Black People towards the president? If this was President George Bush, would we sit by silently and say nothing? WE didn’t shut up during the Bush Administration, so why are so many Black People silent now as bombs explode across Libya?
I’ve said it before… we don’t like to know or understand the truth. WE’d rather be deaf, dumb and blind… but Min. Farrakhan is consistent and calls the president out for his decisions.
