Truth is in favor of you and me; for the truth of our enemies whom we have been serving here in the U.S.A. for over 400 years (whom we did not know to be our enemies by nature) is the truth that the Black Man must have knowledge of to be able to keep from falling into the deceiving traps that are being laid by our enemies to catch us in their way which is opposed to the way of righteous of whom we are members. ~ The Honorable Elijah Muhammad

The True Meaning of Education

Minister Farrakhan at Alabama A&M Univ. I'm in a great institution; I thank God for its founder, William Hooper Councill, and for the vision that he had to set up an institution like this for us.

While the number of black mayors and elected officials in this country is impressive, the number of black entrepreneurs is not. As a result, job creation in under served communities, and among the Black middle class, is stagnant." I think he has a point, don't you?  Final Call...
