As millions of families gather for marathon eating sessions across the nation this holiday season, Black families will worry about where their next meal is coming from at a rate that is twice that of Whites, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture.While the national rate for food insecurity – defined as “disrupted eating patterns, reduced food intake and skipping meals entirely” – was 14.9 percent, Black households experienced food insecurity at a 25.1 percent rate, compared with White households with a rate of 11.4 percent.
A recent report by the United States Department of Agriculture found that one in four Black households will be forced to choose between paying bills or paying for food and 1 in 10 will be forced to skip meals. - New America Media
The Black man in America faces a serious economic problem today and the White race’s Christianity cannot solve it. You, the so-called American Negro, with the help of Allah can solve your own problem.
The truth must be recognized by the Black man. He, himself, has assisted greatly in creating this serious problem of unemployment, insecurity and lack. Before the Black man can begin to gain economic security, he must be awakened from the dead and gain knowledge, understanding and wisdom which will enable him to follow my teachings. Islam and only Islam will point the way out of the entanglement of "want in the midst of plenty" for the followers of Islam, the true religion of the Black nation.
