8 Contemporary Black Thought Leaders Still Debunking Eurocentric Ideology

Minister-Louis-Farrakhan

Minister Louis Farrakhan

Louis Farrakhan is the current leader of the Nation of Islam. One of his greatest achievements was the organization of the Million Man March, also known as the Day of Atonement, on the Mall in Washington, D.C. in 1995. Between one and two million men gathered to hear 12 hours of speeches about the commitment of black men to take responsibility for improving themselves, their families and communities.

During a recent tour of the Caribbean, Farrakhan has called for the unification of Caribbean countries to form an economic and political power in the Western Hemisphere, which he says was inspired by Elijah Muhammad’s teachings.

WFI has the capacity to produce a million pounds of live high quality fish annually in a controlled indoor environment. It is the largest aquaculture facility in Maryland and one of the largest in the nation, according to Powernomics.com.

    With all due respect, Minister Louis Farrakhan has challenged Eurocentric ideology but no debunking can occur with an Islamic centered teaching. We can't deal with any theology/mythology as fact, they are good for metaphors and some wisdom. We are African people, our view needs to be from that paradigm; not Mecca, Jerusalem, or any place in Africa that foreigners brought their religion. Dr. Clarke said that religion is the deification of a culture; so lets celebrate our heroes. We can make Malcolm, a prophet and Harriet a prophet since we know that both of them were real people African descent that walk the earth. Nonetheless, Dr. Anthony T. Browder, Dr. Maulana Karenga, Dr. Molefi Kete Asante, Dr. Theophile Obenga all are African-centered and are best equipped to debunking Eurocentric ideology. Gates…LMAO! He perpetuates Eurocentric ideology; who thought to put him on this list?

  2. White supremacy aka Eurocentric ideology is more prevalent today than ever, especially since Black folks have been lulled asleep under the Obama Presidency. We need to support Min. Farrakhan who has always addressed the root of this issue and other pro-Black voices, but how the hell did Henry Louis Gates get on this list?!

  3. Lots of cunfused black peoples…Louis Farrakhan is not a Muslim. His nickname is Minister Negro Hitler. How in the world you think black people can make real progress when you sit there sucking on Negro Hitler? "Instructor Tyrus" if he was educated, would know that Minister Negro Hitler is not a Muslim. He's a black nazi and he leads the black American nazi movement. I keep sayin'. Whites are better than most black people. You actually sit here praising Negro Hitler. Imagine "I hate Jews," Blacks are better than whites," The black man is a god," Negro Hitler. And you live in a country dominated by whites. And Mr Negro Hitler who hates whites so much, has straight hair and light skin and would not be so "charismatic" if he had dark skin and kinky hair. It's stupid and twisted on so many levels, it's mind-boggling.

  4. Bro, I am trying to address your main point calmly. I think just maybe
    Brother Malcolm was a little more black conscious than you. He taught us to become authentic Muslims. We came to America as slaves. Before we were make negroes, we were free africans. Our elites "Kings and Queens" where literate people who knew how to read and write. They were NOT Christian. We now are beginning to gather data about those Africans. Do you think that before they were put on the slave boat, they jumped up and down singing to Jesus? We most certainly did not. What most black people do today that they call worship is really clinging onto what was programmed into our ancestors the slave quarters. Master made us Christian. Now the question is: how does Islam fit in with black people? Our ancestors FREELY CHOSE ISLAM prior to being shipped to America and Islam is our lost history. There are many books on this topic. The Africans brought here were either traditionalists (animist and pagans) or they were Muslim. You need to pry your head out of nonsense and look to your history. Any religion is not a religion in a vacuum, especially when it is a major world religion as Islam is. Africa is 50% Muslim. There is a unique expression of Islam belonging to Africans. More important, there is a uniquie expression of Islam belonging to black Americans. You claim to be a teacher, but you don't seem to know much. First research the man WARITH DEEN MUHAMMAD. Then find one of his masjids. This man was so humble and yet really smart and we loved him deeply. I get tired of the white solution (aka Minister Negro Hitler) while we hate books and never learn the truth of what we were and what works for us. I know guys with 20 kids by 20 baby mamas who go around talking about how saved they are. You need to quit. You are so stuck on race precisely because you don't have an spirtual system that elevates your soul above your color. Realize that and quit trying to please whites by letting them tell you what to pray to. Mental Bars: the First Amendment does not apply to blacks, so you can't freely go out and find a real spirituality because all you know is that your prayers are supposed to please master.

  5. FarraCon is exactly that A CON JOB. HE MARRIED HIS GROUP WITH THE CHURCH OF SCIENTOLOGY!!!! IT DON'T GET MORE EUROCENTRIC AND EVIL THAN THAT!!!! RESEARCH L RON HUBBARD, HE WORSHIPPED ALEXISTER CROWLEY!!!! Further what has he done other than just RUN his mouth!!! When The Honorable Elijah Muhammad died he left an $100 million dollar empire!!! Farrakhan's nation is in shambles, only about 1,000 core believers. Con JOB!!

    EXCELLENT POST!!!!!!! Harron Karim!!! Praise be to Allah!

  7. As Salaam Alaikum. Brother you need to find something better to do with yourself that to spend any of your time hating on and encouraging other people to hate on Brothers that you don't agree with. I can see where that would be appropriate when you speak about Negros like Justice Clarence Thomas. The man is openly oppose to any thing that would help black people out. Regardless of what you may think of him Minister Farrakhan has had a positive influence on millions of brothers and sisters through out the years. What have you done other result to petty name calling on someone who is trying to do something. If your ideas are so great then you should have a more positive influence on black people than he does. Instead you spent precious space on this page denigrating a brother that a great amount of brothers and sisters love with nothing positive or progressive to add. And the last time I checked in my Quran, Allah is the one who determines who is Muslim and who's not. Me personally I love all of the Brothers and sisters that have a positive affect on our people particularly the ones that focus on our independence and stopping the self genocidal practices of our people, and most importantly our you black men. I haven't seen anyone that has more influence in these areas than Minister Farrakhan. Not saying that he is the only one but he is the most visible and the most outspoken. Other than your negative tirade on Brother Farrakhan what influences of any significance have you had on our people. PEACE BRO.!!!

  8. Lacoure Winters wa alaikum. This is the best thing I can do with my time. When we treat Minister Negro Hitler like the white man treats white Hitler, my job will be done. Minister Negro Hitler is worse than Thomas. Thomas is cashing in on white ignorance. Minister Negro Hitler cashes in on black ignorance. His "positive influence is to play on the hate of ignorant people. It is not petty. You say a black Nazi is okay because he's black. That is stupid backwards racism that keeps blacks as lesser to whites. "The last time you checked your Quran"??? You are a Muslim? Not if you defend Farrakhan. Unlike black, there is a definite and real definition of Muslim and Farrakhan ain't it.

  9. These people speak good English with perfect diction. But treat each other back wood ugly. You don't have to let the world know that we as a people do not have a united front. This is the reason why other races feel that they can bully us and walk all over our constitutional rights, and get away with it. There is no respect. If there is no respect among so called educated blacks, why would we expect our less fortunate sisters and brother to show respect to the masses of Blacks who are trying to stand up and be counted. Brothers, please, I have my share of faults and strive to do better, but you must not punish others just because you have a different perspective. I love all of you. I see greatest in all of you, even the Minister. Peace!
