After it was revealed that Darren Wilson wouldn’t be indicted for the murder of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, a domino effect occurred splitting the nation primarily over the topic of race. The Inquisitr kept updating with the most recent news pertaining to Ferguson and how the aftermath has caused more chaos than resolution. As of late, famous people, brands, franchises, and organizations are voicing where they stand on the situation. The St. Louis Rams expressed support through a “hands up, don’t shoot” gesture on field while Sarah Palin utilized a meme made by Conservative news site, Mad World News, to express her view.
Now there is a video showing what Louis Farrakhan has to say about the Ferguson situation. Apparently, if the demands of the protesters are not met, Farrakhan calls for violence! As a matter of fact, the full statement Farrakhan gave is as follows.
“As long as they [white people] kill us [black people] and go to Wendy’s and have a burger and go to sleep, they’ll keep killing us. But when we die and they die, then soon we’re going to sit at a table and talk about it! We’re tired! We want some of this earth or we’ll tear this godd**n country up!”
According to the Daily Caller, Louis Farrakhan, the leader of the Nation of Islam, went on a fiery tirade about Ferguson on Saturday. The speech was given at Morgan State University, which is known to be a black college located in Baltimore, Maryland. In it, Farrakhan made the justification that not indicting Darren Wilson and peaceful protests are only in the interests of “white folk.”
Also in his speech, Louis Farrakhan even suggested that parents should teach their children how to throw Molotov cocktails. Farrakhan claimed that both the Bible and Koran justifies such actions as justifiable because of the “Law of Retaliation.”
In another article by Examiner, Louis Farrakhan not just calls for violence, but he berates President Barack Obama, the Obama administration, and black religious leaders for engaging in what Farrakhan calls “compromise.”
“Tonight in Ferguson everybody is on edge. 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 heard you, Mr. President; and I asked myself a question: What brings you out of the shadows?”
“And you preachers. Your day of being the pacifier for the white man’s tyranny upon black people, you got to know they’re not going to hear you anymore.”
The video of Louis Farrakhan’s speech he made at Morgan State University, calling for Ferguson protesters to “tear the country up,” is attached below.
After viewing Louis Farrakhan’s speech, what are your personal views? Is he right to call for violence, which he states is justified through the “law or retaliation,” or is he just stirring up problems and creating a greater rift in race wars?
