Minister Farrakhan Gives Fiery Speech In Response to Ferguson Grand Jury Decision

Nation of Islam leader calls out President Barack Obama In the midst of civil rights activists and community leaders urging the Black community to remain peaceful during their push for justice, Nation of Islam leader minister Louis Farrakhan is calling for a different response to the grand jury’s decision.

As with any major movement that sweeps across an entire nation, a diversity of opinions have surfaced as to what will be the most effective response to the grand jury’s decision not to indict officer Darren Wilson in the death of the unarmed 18-year-old.

While many have opted to participate in marches and boycotts, Farrakhan says that racist people in power will not be swayed by peaceful tactics anymore.

“We going to die anyway,” Farrakhan said. “Let’s die for something.”

The 81-year-old Bronx native grew increasingly passionate about the topic as he continued, at one point accidentally referring to the Missouri city as “Jefferson” rather than Ferguson.

“Those young people in Jefferson, they’re not afraid of no tanks,” he said.

Shortly afterwards Farrakhan corrected himself after audience members pointed out the mistake.

“Ferguson, yeah,” he said. “What did I say?”

The minister’s message remained clear—although not everybody is seeing eye-to-eye with his more radical stance on racism in America.

Officer Darren Wilson no indictment“As long as they (whites) kill us (Blacks) and go to Wendy’s and have a burger and go to sleep, they’ll keep killing us,” he said.

He went on to say that racist institutions will not be changed if the Black community does not remain diligent and passionate in their push for justice.

Farrakhan continued to address the applauding crowd and reminded them that the Black community is eager to see changes and have grown weary of dealing with a system that doesn’t seem to value Black lives.

“We’re tired!” Farrakhan exclaimed before saying that Blacks are willing to exhaust all options in order to finally be treated as equals.

Farrakhan criticized educators who were sitting in the room and referred to them as “the worst” for not using their platform to empower the Black community.

“You have bought into the enemy,” he said, pointing at the educators who surrounded him. “And you want to lead your people—not to God, not to Jesus—but you want to lead them into the path of their open enemy that God has come to separate them from.”

He also called out President Barack Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder and criticized their sudden presence in the discussions of racism in America.

“Tonight in Ferguson everybody is on edge,” he said. “White folks have never been on edge after they killed a Black man. Tonight they’re on edge; so on edge that our president has come out from behind the curtain to ask young Black people: ‘Cool it. That’s not our way.’ I hear you, Mr. President; and I asked myself a question: What brings you out of the shadows?’”

He said that both leaders were “being the pacifier for the white man’s tyranny upon Black people.”

His entire address lasted more than 10 minutes and can be watched in full below:

  1. Wow, this guy is so full of hatred and is racist beyond belief. Why would he ever mention God or anything from the Bible in his speech? Don't be fooled. This man does not know God. Anyone who follows his direction will burn in hell with him.

  2. Ken Caron says:

    ummm if you want to go that way loius, its the black race that needs to become extinct, they are the beggers and the trouble makers of the planet.

  3. Karewi Williams says:

    The blacks and other people of color will never become extinct. Just look at what has been done to them over the centuries…and they're still here and numbers are growing.The "real trouble makers" are the people in power "beggers" have no power. Good luck on wasting your time blaming the black man while the "other" man is screwing you……lol. One day you'll wake up.

  4. Dan Henriksen says:

    Karewi Williams How many African Nations have stable governments? Over 2/3 are considered unstable….all of which have the "black man" in power. As for "white man's tyranny"…. it pales in comparison to the Tyranny imposed by most black power nations.

  5. El Dizzy says:

    The government in America has never been stable. Only for some

  6. William Iam Unruly Jefferson says:

    That's your opinion and quite an unintelligent one. You have no power at all but speculative assumptions. Cowardly offering opinions about another race which you have absolutely no knowledge about. It's a fact that Caucasian makes have the highest suicide rate. In the bible it says that's the only sin that can't be forgiven. So it's safe to assume that white men are in fact Devils and the hell spawns thereof. We believe in God so you can be cowardly all you want.

  7. Karewi Williams says:

    Dan Henriksen Always look who's behind the curtain Dan.

    Karewi Williams are you trying to be funny keri,i could start with blacks going into europe and stealing people for slaves.i could go to african countrys begging europe to help them when slavery ended,if they couldn't sell their brothers and sisters they didn't know how to feed themselves..i could point out that blacks are 50% of the welfare in this country,while being only 13% of the population ,i could point out that all of haiti would die if it wasn't for handouts from america..or that half of africa would die of starvation if it wasn't for america.the african race would be extinct if nature was allowed to take its coarse..sad,very sad…
