With just $0.05 a day, this Blueprint will make us strong, firm warriors in the battle to end poverty-->

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

Success Based On Truth: How The Muslims Reduce Crime And Violence In The Black Community

How can we reduce crime and violence in our community? It seems to be an overwhelming problem, but it really is not. The Black community is in need of Economic Success that comes from Economic Development. However, as businesses flee the Black community due to crime and violence increasing in the community, then economic development cannot take place in a “void” or in a “vacuum.”

As long as crime and violence is becoming a “way of life,” then business cannot thrive in an unstable environment. The professional people in the community suffer when crime and violence become a way of life because when people are afraid to leave their homes to go to a store that’s on the corner in their own neighborhood, then “business” dies in the community.

All success, economic or otherwise, is dependent on God and dependent on truth. Wherever God and truth is, success is. But wherever there is falsehood and deceit present in a time given to truth, we will fail. “Success” will always come back to Truth, just as “power” and “strength” will always come back to Truth. And, no falsehood will stand in the Light of Truth just as no false men or false women will stand in the presence of truth. So if I never say anything to any of you again, I want you to be truthful people—not speaking truth out of bitterness or even hatred, but speaking truth because in a day like this, only truth can correct the evil that goes on in our communities.

We cannot produce Economic Success until we reduce Crime and Violence.
