( - All roads leading up the hill to Howard University's Cramton Auditorium on April 2nd revealed a campus in the full embrace of the mighty, mighty FOI. Under the regional Brother Student Minister Khadir Muhammad and Brother Student Capt. Aaron Muhammad, iron-willed Black men lined the streets in every direction. After a decade of enforced absence from Black America's premier institute of higher education, the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan returned with an indomitable force and power to deliver a message with far-reaching implications for the future education of our people.

Straight from the Mecca of Black America, where he issued to the Western world his masterful communiqué on Libya, the Minister stepped into the seat of Western world power, placing an unmistakable exclamation point on his prophetic reprimand to the warmongering world rulers. The Nation's on-campus study group coordinated by a brilliant young Brother Jalil Muhammad organized a weekend of knowledge-building events culminating with the Minister's master class.

The power of Minister Farrakhan's presence was evident long before he graced the Cramton stage. In a moving symbol of affection and respect the strong Black men of the host organization, Christian Brothers United, all wore bowties in “esthetic solidarity” with the Nation of Islam. It was a powerful signal of interfaith unity and commitment to work in harmony for their people in these desperate times. Their president, Bro. Melech Thomas, gave one of the most powerful introductions of the Hon. Min. Louis Farrakhan in recent memory, and the reception of the people made it clear that they were offering The Minister not just a welcome, but a home. His topic this day, “Channeling Our Intelligence and Creative Energy to Save Ourselves,” was tailor-made for but one man—Allah's force and mercy among us. A walking, talking universal history book and wellspring of Biblical and Qur'anic understanding, Minister Farrakhan preached what could only be called that ol' time religion, proving yet again what needs no proof—that he is in fact the headmaster of a divinely chosen people preparing to build a new world.

The Minister masterfully walked this captivated academic congregation through the root knowledge of self and the essence of their divine assignment. And toward that assignment he presented them with the three history books he released last year that have all but silenced his most vicious critics. The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews, vols. 1 & 2 and Jews Selling Blacks comprise nearly a thousand pages of research that both corrects and clarifies the history of Blacks in America and provides historical illumination of the blueprint of the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad.

The power of this act cannot be overstated. These books reveal the long-hidden architecture of White supremacy, and lay bare the actual strategy used by its greatest practitioner—the American Jew—to reach the heights of communal cohesiveness and material success. And placed in the enthusiastic hands of our young Black intellectuals by the boldest Black man in the world, there can be no limit to the explosive potential. They also effectively expose and handcuff those meddling outsiders who, by feigning friendship with the Negro for more than a century, have misguided the masses of our people into a dark political and social alleyway of misery and despair.

Indeed, the “integrationist,” “civil rights” strategy was concocted and foisted upon Blacks by Jews, not to empower us, but to keep us in the most exploitable condition for their own economic advancement. The Messenger of Allah gave us this clear analysis in Point Number 9 of “What the Muslims Believe”: “WE BELIEVE that the offer of integration is hypocritical and is made by those who are trying to deceive the Black peoples into believing that their 400-year-old open enemies of freedom, justice and equality are, all of a sudden, their ‘friends.' Furthermore, we believe that such deception is intended to prevent Black people from realizing that the time in history has arrived for the separation from the Whites of this nation.” The Secret Relationship, Vol. 2 is irrefutable proof of Point Number 9.

The successful intent of this outside engineering of our destiny was to impose on Blacks a crippling commercial illiteracy that exists to this day. It is this inbred behavior of Blacks in America that actually made this nation, of all the places in the world, the most attractive place for White immigration. Coupled with a full legal lockdown known as Jim Crow law (Black codes), this critical deficiency made Blacks a secure and permanent economic trampoline for all immigrant groups, particularly those—like the Jews—with long entrepreneurial traditions. The streets of America were “paved with gold” for them—yellow brick roads that started in our dense urban neighborhoods and in the Black rural cotton fields of the Deep South.

The lessons revealed in The Secret Relationship, Vol. 2 show clearly that Jews did not come to these shores seeking acceptance through sit-ins, marches, hymn-singing, or sign-waving—that's only what they told us to do. Following an ancient blueprint within their holy book Talmud, Jews sent an army of mobile market researchers called “peddlers” to scope out the commercial dynamics of the American frontiers. They traversed the countryside sniffing out trade and supply routes before finally settling in to build brick-and-mortar retail stores and supply houses. They linked themselves into an impenetrable Jewish network of trade and finance that reached from the most remote country mom-&-pop “Jew store” all the way back to the Rothschild banking empire in Europe. The devious reality, though, is that the key to the success of this expansive and exclusive Jewish network was that it relied totally on the Black slave labor systems that drove the world economy. They understood—and still do—that their very survival depends on their control of our Black economy and in maintaining our ignorance of it. This is exactly why the first laws passed in 1948 by the brand new state of Israel were designed to maintain Caucasian Jewish control over the national economy. We should take note of this.

Black student leaders are now presented by Minister Farrakhan with a great opportunity to reverse this enforced anti-economic orientation and take us from a position of sitting Black ducks to a full mastery of our own economic destiny. College students in fraternities and sororities and in groups like Christian Brothers United could be tasked with preparing intelligence reports that analyze and profile the economic dynamics of our own communities around the nation.

A great teacher and friend to the Minister, the Rev. Dr. Albert Sampson of Chicago's Fernwood United Methodist Church, teaches about how he would get up very early to go down to the farm produce exchanges, and watch the various trucks bringing in different products. He learned that one ethnic group like the Greeks had a lock on tomatoes, or the Chinese had greens, the Portuguese had turnips, etc.

This presents a great activity for our emerging young leaders: Who, exactly, controls the commerce of our neighborhoods and how do they do it? Who is bringing in the broccoli, the bananas, the bacon, the collard greens, the Twinkies, the triple-A batteries, the premium gasoline; and in what daily quantities? What are the profit margins from these transactions and who is signing the contracts for the supply of these goods and services? It is not the Black residents—but WHO is it? And don't we have a responsibility to know? What percentage of food is being purchased from fast food places (Chinese, Italian, chains, etc.), and how much of it is from corner variety stores and how much from grocery stores? Our lack of understanding of these critical retail and supply networks means we will never know enough to plan to replace or control them. Once we have these detailed economic profiles it will become apparent where our professional/business class can find its place within this economy, rather than seeking to get an imaginary job in the collapsing world of an enemy people.

The blueprints of Jewish success revealed in The Secret Relationship have only been passed between Jews through their tight family networks, synagogues, and Masonic halls, and it is not offered in Black institutions of higher learning—until last April 2nd. We must emulate this Jewish business model—but without the exploitative feature that has irreversibly condemned their greedy, lustful, predatory world. What if all Black colleges began requiring a 4-year course called “Community Economic Profiling,” which teaches exactly how to perform and then apply this process? These mandatory classes would become the fertilizer of a new mind which looks to take ownership and control, rather than to simply become a functionary in a fast-failing, exploitive system.

The signs of rebirth and youthful determination abounded at Howard University, and now with a forceful new action agenda given by the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan we can revolutionize our people through the Historically Black Colleges and Universities—exactly where this revolution should come from.
