Covid-19 ‘state of emergency’ for Black America?

Early data and deaths are showing Blacks are disproportionate victims of the Covid-19 pandemic based on health and other problems rooted in historical oppression and inequity.

Congressional leaders have called for more data collection and release of data based on race as the pandemic enters what the White House called a crucial phase in early April.

Dr. Benjamin F. Chavis, Jr., National Newspaper Publishers Association president and CEO, recently issued an alert concerning the pandemic and nearly 50 million Black Americans. “Black America is now in a state of emergency as a result of the disproportionately deadly impact of the coronavirus pandemic on our families and communities across the United States,” Dr. Chavis stated.

“Black Americans should stay at home and only leave home for critical life-essential reasons,” Dr. Chavis emphasized. And, he added, before the spread of the coronavirus, Black Americans were already disproportionately burdened with multiple preexisting health conditions, including asthma, diabetes, and heart disease, our communities are more vulnerable to the impact of the coronavirus, including higher rates of fatalities.” » FULL STORY

By Barrington M. Salmon Contributing Writer @bsalmondc

President Donald Trump and Congressional leaders announced the $2 trillion economic stimulus package—the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act to great fanfare, touting the deliverables of different aspects of the provisions and their belief in its ability to slow the economic tsunami exacerbated by the novel coronavirus pandemic.

A Time of Trouble

By THE HONORABLE MINISTER LOUIS FARRAKHAN

My beloved brothers and sisters, the world that we know has entered into a great time of trouble; and the United States of America in particular has entered into that great time of trouble that the Prophet Daniel was speaking about.

When we say “a time of trouble,” what do we mean? When we speak of a time of trouble, we’re speaking of a time of great adversity, great difficulty, great stress and pressure. We are speaking of a time of a great veil of tears, annoyance, irritation and aggravation. » CONTINUE

The Judgement of Allah (God) has entered America

By THE HONORABLE MINISTER LOUIS FARRAKHAN

Allah (God) is so caring that He delays His own Judgement until the people of His choice understand His Judgement. In the Book of Genesis, God visits Abraham and tells him that He is going to destroy the people of Sodom and Gomorrah, except Lot and his family. Abraham asked God, “Would you destroy the righteous along with the wicked?” Abraham’s question reflects that he was not completely in agreement with God’s decision against Sodom and Gomorrah. God did not want to chastise Abraham, His friend, for not believing in the farseeing knowledge of God—that when He pronounces a judgement, that is it. God wanted Abraham to agree with Him. » CONTINUE

The Beginning of Sorrows

By THE HONORABLE MINISTER LOUIS FARRAKHAN

We are living at a time that was described by Jesus in these words: “If those days were not shortened for his elect sake, no flesh would be saved.” We know that we have now entered that period when we witnessed a tsunami killing over 200,000 people in Asia; an earthquake in Pakistan; storms raging throughout America, fire on one side, water on the other, snow, cold, ice in between; and the President of the United States unraveling in front of our eyes. » CONTINUE

Jesus Is the Key Part 2

By THE HONORABLE MINISTER LOUIS FARRAKHAN

A lot of people speak to multitudes, but the message that they speak is not messianic. Jesus knew nothing of what you call Christianity. He never preached Christianity. My teacher taught me that Jesus’ teaching was freedom, justice, and equality, which is what we teach today. Could it be that the Jesus you’re looking for is hiding in plain sight? I couldn’t speak it 40 years ago, because I didn’t know. » CONTINUE

Jesus Is the Key Part 1

By The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan

We are so far from the way we once were in terms of the power that we exercised before coming on a Westerly course into what is called the United States of America, you were a different kind of people. But the God came because it’s time. People have worshipped some of everything for God. That means they know someone was responsible for all of this. They called Him by many names, and they named Him by many things. » CONTINUE

The Unraveling of A Great Nation

By Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan

I bear witness that there is no God but Allah, Who came to us in the Person of Master Fard Muhammad, the great expected Mahdi of the Muslims and Masih of the Christians. He came with two “hats” to give to two servants that He would make to fit the description of Mahdi on one side, and Masih or Messiah on the other side. » CONTINUE

The Majesty of Master Fard Muhammad's Love

By The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan

The Old Testament of the Bible is considered a testament of law. The New Testament is considered a testament of love. Sometimes people observe law out of fear of punishment, not necessarily because they love the law. Sometimes people do good in hope of a reward, not necessarily because they love the doing of good. But love is above the law. » CONTINUE

Is America headed for civil war?

By Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan

As we read this article, many wars are raging in different parts of the world, causing widespread death and destruction. These wars have caused, and are causing, nations to be divided, North and South and East and West, tribe against tribe, one ethnic, racial or religious group against the other. These lines of division that have bred hatred between those of similar ethnic and racial origin are being fed by wicked external forces.. » CONTINUE
