Beloved pastors, my dear Christian family, I am so honored that you would honor us with your presence. We are your family and you are our family, and we will never let what is going on in the East drive a wedge between us in the West. We must be an example of how Muslims and Christians can live together in peace and brotherly love to accomplish the liberation of our people. »
Today, I asked to speak to the Youth Leadership that is called by the enemy, “gang leader.” I don’t like the term because it doesn’t properly describe you. So I will call you “youth leaders,” but I want to tell you today why the enemy refers to you as gangs and gang leaders. »
I know many of you are voters, and you can’t wait to get to the polls, and I know what you’re telling people: “We fought, we bled, and we died to get the right to vote”—for the lesser of two very evil people. So, all right, which one is worse? Lucifer, Satan, or The Devil? The White/Black people will say, “Vote for any one of them—but exercise your right to vote!” »
I am here to honor a great servant of Allah (God) and his wife and his children. So this will be the Don and Shirley Muhammad Show. There is no way in heaven or in hell that I could honor Brother Don and not honor his life companion Sister Shirley Muhammad. »
Brothers and sisters, the American people, you are seeing, now, that we’re leading up to war again. You need to really look at other media on your internet, other than CNN, and the corporate-controlled media of America.
I stand with you. We in the Nation of Islam stand with you. And I’m asking all right thinking Black people, Brown people, and White people to stand with you to force the change that Mr. Trump and Mrs. Clinton are talking. »
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. »
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 of police, FBI, ATF and sheriffs? What are you trying to force us to do? »
As I have traveled throughout the country, everywhere I go I see the spirit in the young Black student, which if properly directed would cause them to do for themselves. We must remember, that if we desire the respect of the world, you and I must do that which will earn that respect.
We are in the condition we're in because we have been living under an enemy whose purpose was to render us an unthinking, uncaring people that would be perpetual slaves or servants to him and his people. »
No creature that God created earns its justification for being except by being what God created it to be. You don’t see creatures violating that law. Everything that God created the creature to be you find it being. But the only one that there is a problem with is the human family. »
We’re in a great election season, and the Black vote has always been necessary when it is war time and tax time, and when somebody would like to be president of the United States; and the Black vote is always courted with fervor, and many promises are made that never get fulfilled. »
In America, not only are Black people dissatisfied, but White people are also dissatisfied. In fact, the dissatisfaction on the Earth is 100 percent. And the Honorable Elijah Muhammad has taught us that whenever there is 100 percent dissatisfaction, this 100 percent dissatisfaction is bound to bring about a 100 percent change—a complete change in rulership. »
We see so many wars going on throughout the planet, even as we speak. Civil wars, tribal wars, wars that are taking untold thousands and even millions of human lives are going on all over the earth. What is the root of this violence? Where did it start? How can it end? »
