It’s the greed for short-term profit that has generated an entire society devoid of values and that alienates the poor and the few non-greedy. Most of the incentives and many... »
As long as leaders lie to the American people, they literally cause the American people not to do what is in the best interest of America to solve America's many problems. As a student of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, I would like to offer some radical solutions. Not that they're going to be followed; but, just to go "on record" as having done so. »
My dear brothers and sisters, if you notice from the beginning of the 1980s when “crack” started, you heard about "The Bloods and The Crips"; and you in Chicago already knew that Chicago had many gangs—but crack was not here. »
I don't have any illusion about telling you to vote. You should vote for those whom you feel will do good for us, but remember, the good that they do is limited by the system that they are in. »
These heroes have done their work, and we are the beneficiaries of what they did! The question is: "What are we doing? What are we doing to finish the work?" Because the work is not done. »
“Let my people go”: What lessons can be extracted from those words? Didn’t you know that those few little words contain lessons? And did you know that in the lessons there are principles? And didn’t you know that undergirding those principles there are laws? So hidden in this command are consequences for rejecting, and hidden in this command is blessing if it is obeyed. »
What is "Sedition"? It is "actions or words intended to incite rebellion against government authority." I can't tell Black people to fight a war that is Israel's war! What kind of leader will you be, or should I be, to allow these babies—Black, White and Brown—to fight Israel's war because Zionists dominate the government of the United States of America, and her banking system? »
Brothers and Sisters, you are a beautiful people. We just have to work as hard as we can to make the devil’s plan unsuccessful. The scripture teaches, “If God had not shortened those days for His elect’s sake, no soul would be left alive.” »
Brothers and Sisters, this peaceful coexistence with the murder of our people has to stop. It is alright for us to march against injustice but the time may soon come or maybe has come, for us to retaliate for injustice. Why don’t you step up to the plate Justice Department and fight for the rights of those whose rights are being trampled upon by the force and power of the army, police, FBI, ATF and sheriffs? What are you trying to force us to do? »
I would like to speak tonight on the subject of the attack on Black youth, especially the attack on young Black men. Why is there an apparent conspiracy to destroy Black youth? What is so different about our youth that they could become the object of a conspiracy from the highest levels of power? Why have they become a generation marked to be destroyed? »
Have you noticed that “the target” all over America is youth? But when you look at all the revolution that’s going on in the world, look at the faces of the people that are overthrowing governments—it is youth!
To this day, it is sickening and saddening that some of us are so mentally disturbed with a "plantation mentality," where we have to await for a signal from somebody else to determine what is in our own best interest. This is the reason why there is trouble in our communities.
In work places today, people are coming to work killing their fellow workers, killing their bosses. You have read about children showing up in school armed, and killing fellow students and teachers, and then maybe killing themselves. This is going on in cities across the country, in work places across the country. »
Leadership is afraid of our young people: You don’t go out among them, and you don’t know what’s going on in them! You are only seeing the repercussions of something that didn’t start with them. Leaders, teachers, preachers: What is your role? »
We need leaders who are strong, who are militant. Certainly we need a strong military, but all leaders must teach, because if we do not teach the people, then all we are doing is ordering ignorance, bringing order to savagery, bringing order to uncouth behavior through fear.
