Being in America, you know what the Native people have suffered, and you know what the Native people continue to suffer.

My enemies have been stalking me and my work in the various cities that I have spoken in to advise us about the 20th Anniversary of The Million Man March titled "Justice...Or Else!"

Surely, if we can master hunger, and thirst, and the drive for sexual co-habitation throughout the hot days of summer, then it will be easier for us to leave off lying and stealing, gambling, the use of drugs, or anything that is unnatural that takes us away from the pure service and worship of Allah.
"Race" is a big factor in this present world as it stands. It's still present in the school system; it's still present in the system of jurisprudence (law). Ferguson was just a "dot," or a microcosm of a macrocosm of injustice to Black people in the cities and towns of America. » CONTINUEThe Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan
The time has arrived that the tyranny must end—and those who want to end it must rise up today, with strength; and then put these things beneath us, these petty divisions, and come together in unity! And when we fire the cannon of our unity, we will put our enemies to flight. » CONTINUEThe Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan
We are at that point in our development where we are being forced, now, to consider "which is the way forward?" "Singing in," "wading in," "crying in," "praying in" have not worked. Marches have not worked and oppression and tyranny are getting worse. » CONTINUE
I have chosen as a subject today, “The Divine Destruction of America: Can She Avert It?” America is the greatest nation on earth and the greatest nation in the last 6,000 years. But America and her people, which includes you, face divine destruction. The question is: Can she avert it? » CONTINUEThe Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan
America is losing friendship throughout the world. The Government of America is losing control of the country's institutions and losing power of her own mind. America is losing control of her world. In desperation, she feels that her guns, rockets, bombs and technology will keep her kingdom in power. » CONTINUE
The Time for "marching" is over! We've done that, and we've accomplished a lot through "marches." Through the Million Man March, we proved that we can rise above our differences because The Cause for which we were rising was greater than the things that divided us. » CONTINUE
