Exactly. My, how angry and defensive the black folks get when they're exposed for being the hypocrites they are.

At least we don't lie about how we feel and what we do. You lying pack of shits can't even admit to your crimes. Yet, you can sure look across the fence at what your neighbors are doing and comment. All the while your neck is stretched out worrying about what goes on in the black mans' world, you stinking houses are on fire and you can't even smell the smoke.

Like why are you talking about Farrakhan? He's minding our peoples business. Why don't you mind yours?

My, my, my....now isn't that the pot calling the kettle black? You can't post a single comment without finger pointing at whites. FairyKhan is a racist turd like you....naturally you're going to praise him and speak highly of him. Of course, I know the black mindset....anti white is good, anti black is racism.

Chicago area ministers and anti-violence advocates from CeaseFire confirmed the Nation of Islam has become more active in combating violence in recent months, volunteering security services at a peace summit and workshops, among other things.
"The effort is to promote peace in the streets. Our first effort is to introduce ourselves to the community," Muhammad said. "So many feel neglected and abandoned."
In his speech Sunday, Farrakhan only addressed violence in terms of guns, saying illegal weapons are the problem.
"The Second Amendment has no relevance to the black community in this sense," he said. "All your weapons are illegal and
Minister Louis Farrakhan speaks during the Saviours' Day annual convention at the U.I.C. Pavilion in Chicago, Sunday, Feb. 24, 2013. you're using them like a savage people."
----------
I have always loved the words and actions of Minister Farrakhan. He is an incredible human being. His focus is on the advancement of our people. As it should be.
America has long been a nation of people of color trying to live with white terrorist. Change is sweet. Let's focus on "doing us!"
I live in the UK, I've only ever heard of Farrakhan from back in the 80's when i was a big Public Enemy fan. I remember he was banned from entering the UK coz he had some pretty contraversial views in the old days.

But he seems to have calmed down now. And addressing guns amongst young blacks is a positive step forward.

There's no point pretending that young black males keep guns becuase of their constitutional rights.

But at the same time, what is he proposing. He can encourage them to come off the streets, he can encourage them to stop selling drugs. He can even encourage them to get an education.

But if there's no jobs for the average man, then there are even less jobs for marginalised youths who possibly have convictions.

Farrakhan has been banned from speaking here, in a country that boasts of "freedom of speech" because white folk don't want him teaching the truth about their sorry asses here.

and Farrakhan is talking about economic development in our communities because this is a problem stemming from the "racism" no one wants to talk about here. america is filled with a bunch of rednecks who are incapable of telling the truth.

If you revisit the "old days" you will understand WHY Farrakhan was speaking in the tone he spoke in. It was a necessity for the times we lived in. Tell me this. If you were treated like the African in America was treated, what would YOU do? White folk are lucky to be alive still. We have learned over the centuries, that we cannot trust white folk to do what is right. Some places are not even prohibiting whites from educating our children which I am 100% in favor of. How can we trust a white man to tell a black child the truth about his past?

We will create our own economy and hire our own.

"We will create our own economy and hire our own"

That's something that i've always thought should be the case. Especially when it comes to fashion and music.

Why oh why do black folk spend so much money on Nike and Adidas. Black folk lead from the front in terms of urban fashionwear. If rappers and ballers ain't wearing it then no one else will.

So why hasn't there been a bright spark somewhere who can lead a revolution in the fashion stakes. Start their own clothing line, make it desirable, market it and start the self perpetuating cycle of success in the community.

Problem is - black folk don't wanna see black folk do well. At least, thats the case here in the UK. If a black dude gets an education, he's a sellout. If he succeeds at work, he's a uncle Tom. If he becomes a millionaire rapper, he's illiminati.

Thats the attitude that needs to change.

I followed the US election last year and was appalled by the comments coming from upstanding white folk and even coloured republicans. The world got to see first hand how backward White America can be.

But there are obviously many who voted for Barack, so I don't equate all of white america with rednecks.

Most people would not be able to tell a Nike from Pike if it were not for a Black man's image behind it, selling it. Let's just say we've been in "training". We not only lead in music, sports, fashion, but in endurance, faith, agility and fairness. You cannot expect our people to be where the white man is today because for generations we have been held back, prevented from reading, gathering, working, and when and were we could achieve and accomplish, our homes and businesses were raided, goods stolen, and people murdered. There was and still there is little justice for the perpetrators but the white people only want to focus on what they've termed "Black on Black Crime." Don't you find that "sinister?" They shine that spot light on us but not on themselves. I for one am just tired of the B.S., I know exactly how Rosa Parks must have felt the day she decided not to give up her seat on the bus to some goddamn white person. Not one of them though about how hard my people were working, that they had to walk far to even get to the damn bus stop, or how tired she might be. We're just supposed to get up and give our seats to whitey because he has some kind of genetic issues going on with his skin ? The same thing exists today. Yes, Republicans are still pissed off because Mrs Parks refused to give up her seat on the Bus. It's the same principle. Today, its we're not supposed to vote for hope, just like in their eyes, we shouldn't have boycotted that freaken bus company.

It is this type of mentality that holds the world back. It is said human beings only use about a tenth of their brains and I can plainly see why. We spend too much time dealing with those who are mental and expecting them to go with our pace. That's just dumb. So the whole human race is retarded because of one race who is afraid of change?

Anyone defending him or his group is a hater and a racist, no if, ands, or buts.
Time to put an end to this modern day socially accepted racism from these black fringe hate groups.
