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

Minister Louis Farrakhan delivers a Message to the Grassroots

I came here tonight to talk about the electoral process and the Black vote. In the book of Revelation, it reads, “And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and it is the time of the dead, that they should be judged,” or given justice. The nations were angry. All the nations of the earth today are angry. And the Book says, “and thy wrath is come.” If you can look at what is happening globally and then focus in on what is happening in America, it is obvious that the God of nature is angry.

Now, dear brother and sister politicians, our people are angry and they are hurting. You and I may meet in this beautiful place and go home to a beautiful home or a decent meal, but our people feel a sense of hopelessness and despair. On BET television the other day, host Tavis Smiley said they called a number of persons asking them about getting out the vote. He said 70 percent of the Blacks that he called said they are not voting because it doesn’t seem to change anything. You call it apathy.  Read more...

Black voters needed in mid-term elections, but Black issues are still unwelcome in 2014

With nearly 500 congressional, Senate and even gubernatorial races to be decided in this year’s 2014 mid-term elections, President Barack Obama’s name is nowhere on any ballot, but when the votes are counted on Nov. 4, all eyes will be on the first Black president anyway.

 

Blacks are once again being courted—“Souls to the Polls” in a crucial Senate campaign in Georgia—only this time Democrats don’t want to appear outwardly, too eager to win Black votes, lest they offend Whites, many of whom feel Democrats already pander to Black “special interest groups.”

Ironically, just the opposite is true. While Black voters have been super-loyal to the Democratic Party and to Mr. Obama, giving him more than 90 percent of their votes twice, Black households have suffered more than all others in the tepid recovery from the Great Recession of 2008 in which only the very wealthy have made gains.
