Before you make a snap judgement and dismiss what she says be sure to watch the whole video. For the full talk go HERE..
Donna Farrakhan has some interesting things to say about the emasculation of the black man. Take a look.
If you are Black and watch reality shows, sports, movies or daytime television and can’t take the time out to watch this you are in sad state. This is our beloved brother Malcolm X on a talk show back in 1963.
Minister Louis Farrakhan makes his case as did Lupe Fiasco on Bill O Reillys’s show to why President Obama has commited atrocities of war since being elected. Do you think they have a point? Or are placing blame soley on Obama and not the leaders of these countries who have committed similar acts?
Minister Farrakhan blasted Pres. Obama and Secy. Clinton for their arrogance in meddling in another sovereign nation’s affairs and publicly recommending regime change. He then instructed Americans to look beneath the surface to see who stands to benefit from the unrest and warned Pres. Obama to be careful of the words coming from advisors lobbying him to move in with military forces to depose Libya leader, Col. Gadhafi. Read more @ http://goo.gl/3jzgo

Not for those with weak stomachs. He held on to this purposely during the election as to not hurt Barack Obama, because the media would have found a way to connect Obama to this fiery speech. Do people really want to hear this now or since we have a new president and we have to start anew is this the old way of making people aware?
Please people we need comments on this. I don’t care what is your gender, race, or creed. Don’t be a pussie speak out!!!!

This presidential campaign has been such an enlightening experience that no one should be ignoring all the historic discussions on race in this country that have been lost in this generation. I stumbled across this peice of video while reading Hip Hop 4 Prez blog over at SOHH. To all of our readers, no matter what your political stance, take the time out and watch this exchange between Fox News and Catholic Priest Father Pfleger from Chicago.
He takes on the racist and bias tactics of Fox News and other media outlets who have skewed the public perception of Dr. Rev. Jeremiah Wright and anyone who critiques the wrongdoing of this government against its own people and people across the world. Definetly a must see.
