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

While we do not wish to foster disunity or make some uncomfortable, questions must be asked: Why is Farrakhan missing? Have Black leaders and organizers of this significant gathering once again avoided the Minister and the Nation of Islam? And is the absence of the man and the movement an indicator that once again we are more concerned with making others comfortable than dealing with the mounting crisis in our community and in this country?

The question isn’t raised out a concern for prominence or any vain acknowledgement of Min. Farrakhan—though a man who has soldiered for Black America for nearly 60 years is certainly deserving of respect. The question is raised because Min. Farrakhan is a man whose divine insight, guidance, love and humility are sorely needed.  The Final Call...
