In the six weeks prior to the announcement, the Nation of Islam leader engaged and inspired thousands of leaders, activists, pastors, youth, advocates, hip hop artists and entertainers in seven cities around the country in support of the march. » FULL STORY
Yes, "All Lives Matter." But the only reason you are here is because it's Black lives that are being slaughtered. And Black Life is the mother and the father of your life; so when you come to honor Black Lives that matter, then you are saying "All Lives Matter" because all came from The Black Man and Woman.
"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

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. » CONTINUEThe Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan
God says in the scriptures He is not the author of confusion, but of peace. How did we get so confused? Satan has entered among the people of God and divided the house of worshipers of The One God, and made some of us enemies of others because we misunderstood the messages of our prophets, wise men and women and sages. » CONTINUEthe Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan
There's other powers that manipulate presidents, kings and rulers! So what you think you've got in the person you voted for: When you find out what you hoped for is something you can't get--because the man you voted for doesn't have the power to deliver, whether it is Obama today, or Mitt Romney tomorrow--your hopes will be dashed.
Women: You've got to be set free! What God has put within you must be cultivated, must be developed, and must be used for the advancement of a Nation and a World. So that's the message of Elijah Muhammad for The M.G.T.—and The F.O.I. My dear sisters: A new world is to come into existence from you. » CONTINUE
