Louis Farrakhan: African Americans deserve own courts

In a fiery speech delivered to 18,000 at Joe Louis Arena, Minister Louis Farrakhan blasted the judicial systems in the U.S. as being biased against African Americans, calling upon the community to set up their own courts.

“We want equal justice under the law,” Farrakhan said on the last day of the Nation of Islam’s annual convention, held in Detroit this year. “Our people can’t take much more. We have to have our own courts.”

With U.S. Rep. John Conyers, a Detroit Democrat, and Detroit City Council President Brenda Jones sitting behind him, Farrakhan spoke for nearly three hours, reiterating the Nation of Islam’s view that the U.S. is a land headed for destruction because it has disobeyed the word of God.

Farrakhan suggested that African Americans rely on the Quran and Bible to help set up their own legal system that would be more fair to African Americans.

That was my first reaction exactly.

A whole lot better action , and a much KINDER version of the same thing I wanted to say!!!!

Funny ! I thought of their own prisons too ! Helps me to understand more the feelings of those who use to say , put them on a ship and send them all back!

DITTO! This is exactly what I have said all along! Abe Lincoln proposed to do this but the Blacks would not go. I do not blame any American for wanting to live in their homeland but if you want different than America--go somewhere else. An American is an American! If they do not "feel" American then apply for repatriation to their "homeland". Frickinhan is a POS!! 

that was my 1st reaction..give them their own state and obama as prez with all his thugs and leave us alone..

Oh schitt......send them swimming back to Africa with a watermelon under one arm and a Mexican under the other (shame on me ;)  )

Sounds like Farrakhan wants Segregation.  Many Blacks segregate themselves anyway by never becoming a part of American Society, a chip on their shoulder, anti-White America attitude.

Paul.......Farrakhan may 'appear' to want segregation.....but his is affiliated with the Nation of Islam.  He is pushing for sharia courts. There is a huge difference between Black Americans and Islamic 'African American'....not to mention all islamists are NOT just from Africa. Farrakhan is attempting to further divide this nation using 'race' ...when in fact what he's really doing is attempting to further 'infiltration of  islamic law....which is not compatible with U.S. Constitution.

"infiltration of Islamic law....which is not compatible with U.S. Constitution-neither is Obama, Holder, and the majority of Congress.

Great analysis Lindar.

Ship Farrakhan to Africa so he can open up some new courts for his minions , then if they try to come back in, have them come back in for their American trial. That will give them some motivation to stay there.

Blacks with their own courts is analogous to clerics judging men of Islam.




Reporter Kicked Out Of Michelle Obama
Conference For Violating ‘Black Girl Code’

The Black Entertainment Television channel recently hosted a conference in south Florida for black women known as “Leading Women Defined,” which featured a casual conversation between former first lady Michelle Obama and former senior White House adviser Valerie Jarrett.

But according to the New York Post’s Page Six, a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist who was in attendance was booted from the remainder of the conference after she wrote an article about some of the comments Obama had made during the discussion.

Robin Givhan, a fashion critic and staff writer for The Washington Post, documented the highlights of the friendly chat between Obama and Jarrett.

Some of the highlights of the conversation included the former first lady’s thoughts on President Donald Trump’s inauguration as the Obamas prepared to leave the White House, the role she played during the 2008 election, her difficulty settling in as “the spouse” to the president, how she described her White House garden as a “subversive act” to garner trust with the public and her upcoming memoir. Of course Givhan also wrote about what Obama was wearing … after all, she is a fashion critic.

But following the publication of the article, according to Page Six, BET demanded Givhan leave the conference early amid claims that she had violated a “sacred space” by publishing the content of the conversation.

They also canceled a panel discussion that Givhan initially had been asked to moderate.

However, Page Six noted that BET’s claim that Obama’s discussion was “private” and not intended to be shared with anyone else outside the small gathering in attendance didn’t hold up to scrutiny given the fact that BET itself posted clips from the discussion on its site.

Furthermore, Jarrett also posted those clips on social media and told everyone to “tune in” to the network so they could hear what Obama had to say.

Shortly thereafter, the dispute descended into a sharp back-and-forth on social media between Givhan and others who were irked at what she had done, as can be seen on Givhan’s Twitter feed.

Several of her critics asserted that the conversation had been “off-the-record” — an assertion Givhan flatly denied — and one user claimed the reporter had “violated a sacred trust” between black women.

Another said what she had done was a “complete violation of journalistic ethics and Black girl code, all at once,” while still another asserted through a hashtag that Givhan was “#notoneofus,” as if she were being banished from the exclusive realm of accepted professional black women.

For their part, a BET representative told Page Six that Givhan had been “invited as a guest (not working press) to moderate a fashion panel,” and noted that her travel and lodging expenses had been paid for by the network.

“She was made aware that it was an intimate conversation in a sacred space of sisterhood and fellowship,” the rep added.

Neither Givhan nor representatives for Obama responded to requests for comment on the report from Page Six.

If the WaPo reporter really was instructed ahead of time that the conversation between Obama and Jarrett was “off the record” and a private affair, but published anyway, then BET was justified in booting her from the remainder of the conference — though the mean-spirited commentary she received on social media still crossed the line.

But if Givhan received no prior warning on the matter — and given the fact that BET itself published the conversation later — then this is just a major display of hypocrisy and unnecessary infighting.

What do you think?
