The world that we live in desires first of all to hide the truth to keep the Black man who is made blind, deaf and dumb by the scientific tricknology of the white race, so that the white race can continue to carry on the same deceiving and wickedness that they have been practicing.The Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad, The Fall of America


Within this four-part Final Call series, we see every sector of American society implementing profoundly racist policies and programs that are respected and enforced by every other sector. The executive, judicial, and legislative branches of government, private industry, the media, the labor movement, religious institutions, and the corporate world—ALL have agreed on one thing: White Supremacy must prevail. Here are the “nuts and bolts” of this wicked and racist system.


Government Sabotage: FBI's COINTELPRO

The FBI took hundreds of known actions against Black advancement organizations during the “civil rights era,” including the use of agent provocateurs, saboteurs, wiretapping, the planting of false rumors and disinformation, and the murders of key leaders and activists. The FBI's own files reveal that the most surveilled, infiltrated, and investigated group of Americans are Black Americans; and of those, the Nation of Islam has garnered more “security index files” than any other organization, including the Communist Party and the Ku Klux Klan. This nefarious activity has only increased with the passage of the 2001 “Patriot Act” after the American/Israeli false flag operation of 9/11. The uncountable agencies formed under the auspices of the Nazi-esque “Homeland Security” have simply moved Blacks into the category of “terrorism” and carried out the malevolent mandate of the legendary racist and cross-dressing FBI director J. Edgar Hoover. They have also farmed out many of their former governmental functions to private firms like Blackwater, Southern Poverty Law Center, or the Anti-Defamation League.

Affirmative Action

The presidential executive orders of the 1960s known as “affirmative action” were only intended to address government employment discrimination or discrimination by private businesses that received government contracts. Other private businesses were not covered and most simply refused to hire Blacks. In 1970, the majority of Black college graduates were government employees—the only entity forced by law to take them. Unions were not covered, and at one point a major national union had but 50 Black apprentices—just one for every state!

The civil rights movement held great “affirmative action” benefits for Jews, women, and gays, however. All stood in the background whilst Blacks took the beatings, water hoses, lynchings, and insults to pry open the doors to America's inner sanctum. Legislation for which Blacks suffered and died included language that erased barriers for every other “minority” group. These groups then used the civil rights laws to secure their own place in the corporate world, for which they also acted as gatekeepers, refusing entry to Blacks.

Corporate Welfare

The phrase “corporate welfare” describes government tax breaks and subsidies awarded by the federal government to American businesses for which the public receives no goods or services. Moderate estimates say that these giveaway programs bestowed overwhelmingly on wealthy White businesses cost all Americans from $100 to $150 billion a year. Whites obscure this hand-out by pointing to social welfare programs like AFDC (Aid to Families with Dependent Children), which amounts to a comparatively trivial $20 billion a year, with Blacks representing just 4 in 10 of the recipients—and 100 percent of that money is ultimately routed to the White businesses that provide the goods and services. Corporations with their mouths full of “gimme” and their hands full of “much obliged” include Boeing, Xerox, IBM, Motorola, Dow Chemical, and General Electric. Also considered welfare are the recent bank bailouts and the zero-interest loans from the Federal Reserve to financial institutions such as JP Morgan Chase, Citigroup, Wells Fargo and Bank of America. Unaccounted for in this giveaway of American tax money is the massive expense for unnecessary weapons programs for the unjustifiable military campaigns America has waged around the world. This is yet another major form of welfare and make-work job creation for White people for which Blacks receive a perpetual bill every April.

Policing of Blacks

The policing of Black America is a function that has direct roots in plantation slavery. The task of hunting down and instilling fear into innocent enslaved Black people fell to the newest European immigrants, primarily the Irish, who took on the role with a special fervor. Even today, the ceremonies and funerals of both the military and police forces across America include an Irish bagpipe band, testifying to a role that was once exclusively theirs.

Blacks are tolerated in an urban setting because they are the blue-collar labor force that turns on the city early every morning, flips the burgers, bags the groceries, carts the people and products in and out, delivers the mail, turns the hotel bed sheets, mammies the little White babies, and then mops up in the evening. But they must, absolutely must, return to their designated geographic confines in the city shadows at the end of every business day.

Thus, the role of police is that of containment of the Black population and protection of the White—firmly and violently keeping Blacks within their prescribed boundaries, and protecting the merchants as they move in and around the inner cities. This is why a police SWAT team will unhesitatingly hunt a Black petty thief to the far corners of the slums, but has no jurisdiction, no power, no authority to gaze in the direction of the billion-dollar gangsters on America's Wall Streets.

War on Drugs

Under the Anti-Drug Abuse Act of 1986, the mostly White powder-cocaine users would have to be caught in possession of 100 times the amount of “crack” cocaine, used by mostly inner-city Blacks, to suffer the same legal penalties.

This legislation (with the ignorant support of several negro legislators) engineered the wholesale population shift of Black men into the increasingly privatized prison camps of White America. By 1990, the proportion of Blacks admitted to state and federal prisons rose from 39 to 53 percent. Blacks accounted for 88.3 percent of crack distribution convictions even though the majority of crack users, by this time, were White. Felony convictions and plea bargains eliminated voting rights for thousands and limited all future job opportunities. In 2011, there are more Black men in prison or jail, on probation or parole than were enslaved in 1850. This created and now sustains a highly profitable private prison industry and a captive Black workforce that serves White corporate America for pennies an hour—slaves yet again. Whites use more drugs, and more varied drugs, in higher amounts, and are a much higher percentage of the population, yet Blacks are far more likely to be stopped, searched, arrested, prosecuted, convicted and incarcerated for drug law violations than are Whites.

Citizenship & Immigration

In Message to the Blackman, The Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad wrote: “An American according to the dictionary ‘is a citizen of the United States or of the earlier British Colonies; one not belonging to one of the aboriginal races.' We belong to the aboriginal nation of the earth; the White or European race is not aboriginal.” Citizenship includes the right to vote and own land, but citizenship was not open to all races until 1952—and even then it was severely limited by immigration quotas. All Whites were allowed citizenship by the late 1770s, but Blacks, Indians, and Latinos have always been considered “second-class citizens.”


These are just a few of the entrenched benefits that comprise what The Hon. Minister Louis Farrakhan calls the “Architecture of American White Supremacy.” This dizzying array of programs, policies, and institutional behaviors constitutes the nuts and bolts of White privilege and accounts for the incredible wealth advantage Whites have over Blacks, an advantage that has now reached 20-1. No, the claimed “hard work” or “nose-to-the-grindstone” method is pure Euro-mythology and yet another psychic trick to suggest that Black poverty is merely a sign of Black laziness and inferiority. There is a reason why White people constructed thousands of ships and sailed thousands of miles across a treacherous ocean to attack and steal millions of people from Africa—and it is not because those people are lazy. Indeed, they are the most productive and industrious people who ever lived.

These behaviors are not random acts of renegade Caucasians, but the highly efficient tactical operation of a sociopathic people acting on the perfected Yakubian principle of racial domination. Whites feign ignorance of these extraordinary injustices when they make their ludicrous claims about their “HARD WORK” and when they prescribe “solutions” for the children of their former slaves.

This is their playbook (their real bible)—the sum and substance of the one book of mathematics Allah permitted them to have—and they have no other. From the infamous Compromise of 1877 onward, all programs and policies were duty-bound to conform to the sacred objective of White supremacy. And since this is the behavior of American Caucasians toward their own citizens, their foreign policy can only be a species of this devious master plan. The Messenger was clear and probably accurate:“They have no respect for people who want to be at peace with them. They have no respect for the laws of justice. They have made trouble all over the world with people who were at peace among themselves until the white shadows of the troublemakers spread out over them. We have history that they, themselves, have written of self, bearing witness to what I am teaching today. What must be done since we cannot get along with them in peace?”

As our great Brother Minister Louis Farrakhan has established beyond the shadow of a doubt, Whites have absolutely no intention of ever returning their ill-gotten gains to their victims, or even admitting they have committed any evil at all. Indeed, these are intrinsic, unalterable, programmed behaviors that have brought them near total success. Appealing to their sense of “fair play” is a pitifully useless enterprise—it can never bear (and has borne no) fruit at all. The only appeal we now can make is to Allah, and to Him alone. The Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad pointed to a clear, concise program of righteous Separation from the most evil regime ever devised. He said: “We want our people in America whose parents or grandparents were descendants from slaves, to be allowed to establish a separate state or territory of their own—either on this continent or elsewhere.” And as his greatest Apostle has plainly stated, “Pharaoh has let us go.”

The Messenger prescribes “hard work in a collective manner”—unity—for our people, action that we MUST take, but we are not alone. Minister Farrakhan has made so many REAL friends for us around the world, with whom we can unite and form true and mutually beneficial alliances. Let us resist any further investment in a failed society and pool our resources to establish our own Nation based on freedom, justice, and equality. It will indeed be “hard work” to separate from a people whose perception of justice is exactly opposite that of Almighty God, Allah. But in reality, we have no other choice.
