  1. Thats Deep says:

    I just love Brother Farrakhan, he was blessed to be one of the the few verbal alarm clocks, especially for the poor and oppressed people in our communities.

  2. Jimmy Pratt says:

    This man has no moral ground to stand on.

  3. There is some good things in what he is saying and bad things. The President was correct the thugs in the Baltimore riots. We can't make excuses for the bad choices of some. He's correct that Black people cant depend on Washington to bail us out. He's also correct that Blacks must own more business of the businesses in their communities and recycle those dollars in that communities. No one can make chant rue changes but those living in those communities.

  4. Funny how people can call the people in baltimore thugs for a violent revolution and then turn around and celebrate white people's violent revolution on the fourth of July.

  5. Lisa Jackson says:

    Yes black people must change their mentality. Riots and marches only worked back in the day because that was the first time blacks publicly asserted themselves, that was a new thing to the white establishment. But the government didn't change a thing until black people said if you want us to sit in the back of the bus, then we won't ride on it. "mentality shift." We would rather walk instead, the bus line nearly went bankrupt then they had to change, what other choice did they have. Well riots and marches are now longer a new thing to the white establishment, they wait for it and have figured out ways to profit from it. So black people when we change our ways the government will be forced to change their policies on how they treat us. Because the government will only adjust based on the people they have to deal with.

    America is the biggest thug in the world. what they did in Baltimore wasn't righttrue. damn young brothers did not shoot at no one or use massive weaponry against innocent people. like this country has been doing since it exists. the president is a puppet he has no room to talk. he never really gave two cents about poor or middle class he more for the rich

  7. Nate Walker says:

    I RERALIZE BROTHER FARRAKHAN HAS MORE CREDABILITY THAN I, AS IT SHOULD BE, BUT I MUST STILL ASK WHERE ARE THE AMANS WHEN I SAY THE SAY THING AND HAVE BEEN SAYING THEM FOR FORTY PLUS YEARS? SISTERS AND BROTHERS, WE HAVE TO STOP HATING THE MESSENGERS AND START LISTENING TO THE MESSAGE. DON'T DARE THINK FOR ONE MINUTE I AM COMPAIGNING FOR ANYTHING. I AM NOT. AS THE OLD SAYING GOES: I AM CAMPAIGNING FOR NOTHING. IF DRAFTED, I WONT RUN AND IF ELECTED, I WONT SERVE. SO DON'T GET IT WRONG, I HAVE BEEN PREACHING MY "LITTLE SERMONS" FOR THE SAKE OF MY PEOPLE WHO INSIST ON BEING MORE COMBATIVE WITH THOSE OF US TRYING TO ALERT THEM, THEN THEY ARE WITH THE REAL ENEMY WHO CONTINUES TO DUPE THEM WITH A FALSE DICHOTOMY, WHILE THEY'RE CHASING POLITICAL RAINBOWS LOOKING FOR THE PROVERBIAL "POT OF GOLD"….SICK……WAKE UP PEOPLE! PEACE!

  8. FIRST MISTAKE. "WE HELPED OUR BROTHER GET IN OFFICE"? OBAMA is NOT A BROTHER. FARRAKHAN ENDORSED THIS GAY PREZ, SO NOW, YOU MUST PAY THE PRICE!

  9. The cops and government are the thugs and criminals

  10. Fuck Farrakhan evil bastard one of the people keeping black people stupid. We have not forget the role you played as they killed Malcolm X. Die already you bastard. Think we forget or we don't know what you represent. You haven't forget see you mention it and you will never forget. Bastard

  11. Julie Taylor says:

    Anger builds up in the heart of fools. Black been angry for years they need to give it all to Jesus. They created the name thugs and criminal behaviour. Black continue to behaved in a decent manner they would not be call name's. Black should conduct themselves accordingly. Respect is earned regard-less. Amen!

  12. Marching up and down without making specific demands from the system is a waste of time, and they know it. We need to be asking for black cops policing our communities, black school system, free education (as Cuba gives its people) for at least community college. Our people need training and retraining that they cannot afford.

  13. I NEVER FORGET NO WAY HE KILLED MALCOLM X.

  14. Hotep N Fabo says:

    Yes brother, don't forget about thanksgiving and all the rest. It puzzles me when I see black people celebrating those holidays.

  15. Kris Visual says:

    Does anyone here really believe that President Obama had any intention or ability to make the broad sweeping changes these black leaders thought would happen. Did you see what it took for him to get Obamacare passed, and that was basically a republican endorsed program before he brought it to the table. One of the key things I appreciate about the Nation is there unapologetic stance on black people doing for ourselves and protecting one another. Having a black president that would make being black in America easier is a pipe dream. Money dictates policy not any one man/woman. The sooner we accept that principle the easier it will be to make change a reality.

    No one can change the heart of a nation through policy change! Well you can make them angrier.

  16. Kris Visual says:

    Nothing has changed. We still will need to bankrupt some companies to get what we want.

  17. This is the most ignorant comment. You clearly don't understand how serious this is and you want to play around and offer silly advice such as that. Please just keep quiet if you're not going to help in black people moving towards freedom in all areas of people activities.

  18. People keep asking the question why do black people do this why do we kill that… We must understand how loss identity and oppression work. This mentality that we have is from living in a white supremic society. Only knowledge of self and positive encounters with one another can move us on a better path. But nothing will help more than group economic. We must group our finances and keep it within our own to move onto financial independence. Once we can own our own grocery stores banks real estate land schools… We won't have to answer to the white man or adopt any of their policies. When you own you're a boss when u don't own shit you're a slave. My people we are slaves in a new email and not having has been conditioned in our minds for so long that we believe we don't deserve. You are all God's Nd goddesses and the white Mans history and Bible Willy have you believe you contributed nothing to civilization and that you are the Lowest of all humans when in reality it isquite the opposite.

  19. I mean ear not email

  20. Stupid auto correct E R A

  21. Julie Taylor says:

    You need God. I clearly understand. Your are the ignorant one. When you know God you will speak truth. I know what i am talking about. Thanks.

  22. Jimmy Pratt says:

    Drama Gabbana I’m going to too reply to your post without insulting you. Agreeing and disagreeing is the principal of knowledge. This diversity fuels intellectual curiosity. Without intellectual diversity, freedom and progress is not possible. The Black community have purged from its community, its politics, its media and learning institutions all who disagree with the status quo. As a result, we have in leadership people who say only what we want to hear. In 2008 Black leader elected every one they wanted and to this day has not made a single demand on them. Instead they choose to blame the people they didn’t vote for. Remember it was Malcolm X challenging Martin Luther King that to Black social and economic liberation.

  23. Jimmy Pratt says:

    Kris Visual Are you saying: If “they” give us what we want, we will stop killing each other, stop getting AIDS, stop having babies dependent on the system, stop dropping out of school and stop hating each other?

  24. Jimmy Pratt says:

    When a race of people have churches on every corner and over 30,000 non-profits and civil rights organizations, they will be kept ignorant so that these organizations can exist. As for more Black cops, Black people are not demanding them for a good reason – they shoot more people than White cops but the community knows.

  25. Bruce Wiley says:

    A women having a child just to collect welfare is the beginning of the black communities problem

  26. Julie Taylor says:

    Love you Ms. Gabbana inspite-of . All God want us to live in Peace with one another. Don't you know we black people are the chosen one's! !! So let us working -on -be good stewards until our Father return. Thanks!

  27. No Brother Abdould he was not the "trigger man" but history tells us he had a hand it it. Now he's convinced he's knows more than Brother Malcolm. Kind of like Larry Holmes thiking he's more famous than "The GREATEST!"

  28. Kris Visual says:

    Jimmy Pratt I wasn't proposing a silver bullet. There is no one strategy that will "fix" every problem that black people face in America. When I speak of bankrupting companies I am talking about responding to businesses that support racism either through their action or who they support.

    You act as if no other race kills each other, gets AIDS, or has babies dependent on the system. Don't let anyone tell you (this includes the media) that this is strictly a Black experience. As a rule I don't hate black people and I don't think we as a people hate each other. I think if we let TV be our reality instead of actually talk to each other, we will start to fear one another and actually believe that because a young man is wearing his pants off his ass that he is automatically a treat.

    We achieve some level of success as a people, we immediately start to cozy up to white people and we make their fear our own. I used to wear my pants the same way when I was in high school. It didn't make me want to rob anyone, I was still responsible for my actions. Rap music and the hip hop culture didn't turn me to crime, it showed me the world for what it really is.

    We as black people seem to be forgetting how to relate to one another. The respect we used to show each other naturally has been replaced with a hyper sense of entitlement. Young men faced with disrespect from law enforcement, teachers, and disconnected elders in the community feel the need to prove their version of manhood before they are able to full understand what that means. This skewed perception of manhood is what allows for gangs and gun violence to infiltrate out neighborhoods.

  29. Kris Visual says:

    Jimmy Pratt Please explain how Malcolm X challenging MLK led to Black social and economic liberation. I wasn't of age to remember the details. From what I have read, interviews I have watched/listened to and discussions I have had with people that were old enough to understand what was going on in those days, the relationship between Brother Malcolm and MLK was differing philosophy on how to deal with white supremacy. I didn't get the impression that it was as a result of their sometimes opposing views that we made the strides in self-determination that we have made thus far. In my humble opinion is was the threat of a man like Malcolm X, (an organized, black nationalist meaning he took a no nonsense approach to dealing with white supremacy) that saw that made MLK a more palatable option. MLK asked black people to love their oppressor and shame them into doing the right thing. Malcolm X said we need to love ourselves enough to meet the white power structure where they were at the time. If you want to be violent towards black men, women and children we will protect ourselves within the limit of the law. We will not allow you to continue to brutalize us.

    That kind of pride in not only ourselves but the willingness to protect each other is what is missing today in my opinion and why a statement like "black people need to conduct themselves better" is a dangerous statement because you take the responsibility of treating someone like a human being off the white man's shoulder and lay it ever so delicately on the ours…again.

  30. Kris Visual says:

    Black cop is an oxymoron in my view they are all BLUE. When you are in a profession where you HAVE to carry a gun, the person to the left and right of you are more important than any race or political affiliation. Black schools and free education isn't realistic. Do you think America will support creating a "black" school? That is something we have to do ourself. As for free education, that is only helpful to those with aspirations for college, what about everyone else? College isn't for everyone. There is nothing wrong with that. I graduated from college with a business degree and if I had it to do all over again I would have skipped it. College doesn't automatically lead to success, having a clear goal, a well-thought-out plan and access to proper resources does that.

    I think we should start simple: food, shelter, opportunity. The Black Panthers had the right community perspective. Know the law. Police the police. Get food to everyone particularly the children in school. Educate the community with a steady dose of black history and accomplishments (so we can take pride in our heritage and aspire for greatness not just in sports and entertainment, something that benefits the community not just the individual). Invest in and reconnect with the youth (not just our kin, but the fatherless girl down the street or the group of boys hanging around at the park. These aren't lofty principle but they require pushing past your own fears and hard work.

    Essence weekend which will be hear in New Orleans 4th of July weekend is the BEST time & place for a Black Unity Rally which begins Spiritually with Blacks cleansing & perging ourselves. In order to Heal & come together to fight for equal & economic rights. This Rally/March WILL happen that Saturday morning of Essence weekend for 9am at Congo Square in Armstrong park, through the French Quarters to the Ernest Morial Convention Center. This weekend who's, who from Black America WILL be in New Orleans & should do something or somethings to Spark change in our different community's which face the same problems. Lack of respect from others & self. Then lack of economics from others & self as well. In the words of Min. Louis Farrakhan, "Justice or ELSE!!!"

  32. Chris Kash says:

    Your so brainwashed it doesn't make any sense. Give it all to a white Jesus who doesn't even exist. Take the white mans's religion and other ideologies and other ideologies and shove it up your ass

  33. This idiot is not thinking about black people any more than obama shit hitler or the other race baiters…i know that most white people are not racist as well as most black people aren't…most blacks work hard and have things that they want out of life..but some white and black people don't want a good job or finish school..then they start the blame game..they are responsible for how their life goes as do the people that are doing all they can to get ahead…obama is just keeping black people down..why not use the money to start schools so that people can learn a trade that don't have a diploma instead of giving them all free stuff….democrats have been the black peoples enemy all along and most don't even see it..God Bless America and all People IN IT…

  34. Yes, you can call Mr. Farrakhan a racist and you might be right. However, his emotions are the results of the truths that he speaks. White negationist are busy revising history so they can omit, whitewash and minimize the truth. That's called Negationism. At least Mr. Farrakhan keeps it real.
