A Mouthpiece For A Menace Speaks

by Final Call News

Ari Fleischer, via his @AriFleischer Twitter account in early March, retweeted a short video from the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan’s account. “This man is a menace. Maybe his account was... »

The awful price of violence today and tomorrow

by Final Call News | Mar 9, 2017 - 11:00:03 AM

There was good news for six days in the city of Chicago: No one had been shot and killed. It’s sad that such a small window without a gun death was major news because it flew in the face of almost daily reports that someone in the third largest city in America lost life at the barrel of a gun. »

Days Of Division, Resistance And Deliverance

by Final Call News | Jan 24, 2017 - 6:47:09 PM

The 45th president of the United States has been sworn in and a relatively peaceful transfer of power has taken place. But the Divided State of America was clearly seen with the lack of attendance at the inauguration ceremony and literally millions who took to streets to protest the tenure of President Donald John Trump. »

The Weak Justice Dept. And Its Failures To Give Justice

by Final Call News | Jan 18, 2017 - 11:43:54 AM

As the Obama administration comes to a close, the Justice Dept. has issued its report on the Chicago Police Dept., and its pattern and practices, and constitutional violations of the rights of Blacks and Latinos. The findings are disgusting and disturbing but unsurprising. »

Hate crimes and an horrific video surfaces in Chicago

by Final Call News | Jan 11, 2017 - 9:53:10 AM

The images of a young man cowering in a corner while he is taunted, threatened and assaulted is beyond disturbing and has brought attention again to the city of Chicago where four young Blacks have been charged with kidnapping, assaulting and race-based crimes against a special needs young White male. »

The value of guidance in dark times

by Final Call News | Jan 3, 2017 - 2:33:29 PM

Whatever your spiritual or political persuasion, you could likely agree that these are dark times. Whether the issue is the level of violence, intractable poverty, confusion of leaders, sheer lack of morality and empathy or a type of manic, self-absorption that demands individual satisfaction no matter the cost, these are truly times that try the souls of men and women. »

We can't depend on others to protect Black women and girls

by Final Call News | Dec 29, 2016 - 9:23:03 AM

The worst thing about the indignity and brutality captured on the video of a White officer slamming a Black mother in Ft. Worth, Texas to the ground, then arresting her and her two daughters is that it was unsurprising. »

Van Jones' Misguided View

by Richard B. Muhammad - Editor | Dec 20, 2016 - 4:02:02 PM

Van Jones should know a thing or two about mischaracterizations, false narratives and unequal comparisons. The CNN contributor was driven out of the Obama White House by Republicans who accused him of a ton of things—ranging from accusations he was a Communist, to charges he was a left wing extremist. »

Condemning Keith Ellison's DNC madness and attempts to smear Min. Louis Farrakhan

by Richard B. Muhammad - Editor | Dec 7, 2016 - 2:20:50 PM

Mr. Ellison, who was captured in at least one photo distributing The Final Call while in college, condemned the Minister as he sought his new place. But his cowardly and baseless repudiation is nothing new. While running for Congress a decade ago, his “I’m not with Farrakhan and he’s a hater” narrative started. »

One Unchangeable Position: Making America White Again

by Final Call News | Nov 16, 2016 - 11:28:41 AM

After a stunning and historic political upset, President-elect Donald Trump is moving forward to lead the nation. With his first televised interview and some subdued communication with President Barack Obama, the new chairman of America, Inc. is sounding a little different from the bombastic man who thrashed his way to the White House. »

Leadership You Can Disbelieve In

by Final Call News | Nov 3, 2016 - 12:14:18 PM

The presidential election for 2016 is unlike any in modern U.S. history and perhaps in the history of the United States as two widely unpopular, distrusted and polarizing candidates seek to lead the country. »

Who will defend and develop Haiti?

by Final Call News | Oct 13, 2016 - 8:12:01 PM

The news is horrible and heartbreaking from Haiti with the death toll of some 1,000 people and hundreds of thousands of others lacking food, clothing, shelter and clean water in the Black Republic. Word of aid to Haiti is coming out now but we cannot be satisfied with promises and platitudes. »

A voice for Black America passes

by Richard B. Muhammad - Editor | Aug 23, 2016 - 11:00:14 AM

As was widely reported George E. Curry departed this life Aug. 20 and was 69-years-old. He made an incredible impact on the Black Press through weekly columns and as the leader and editor of Black-owned publications. »

Independence Day for the Black Man and Woman

by Final Call News | Jul 5, 2016 - 10:59:20 AM

The Independence Day celebrations are over. The barbeques are done. The flags are put away. America has marked another year of her sovereignty and her break with Great Britain to chart her own course. »

What About Jessica?

by Richard B. Muhammad - Editor | Jun 28, 2016 - 9:19:05 PM

Murder is a horrible thing but some killings are so gruesome, so wanton that they elicit a special brand of shock, horror, pain and dismay. The brutal and public killing of a young mother on a Chicago subway train is an infuriating horror story. »
