Over the Labor Day weekend, Chicago hit a deadly milestone with its 500th recorded homicide of the year. According to The Chicago Tribune, the Windy City has now logged more homicides than New York City and Los Angeles combined in 2016 and is on pace to reach a homicide level that has not been seen for over 20 years. According to a police spokesman, of the 512 homicides in 2016 tallied by the Tribune, 488 fell under the jurisdiction of the Chicago Police Department. The last time Chicago exceeded 480 murders in a year was in 2003, when there were 601.

This ain’t just for LA this is for black people worldwide.
Skipp Townsend ( http://www.2ndcall.org ) visits Washington D.C. for the Justice Or Else! Million Man March 20th Anniversary and the message he took back to the streets of South Los Angeles was that “Black-on-Black” violence can be cured by putting down the guns and stop the hating on your own brothers.
Minister Farrakhan speaks on his recent controversial meeting with Kanye West & Kim Kardashian. Hit the cut for the video..
Geraldo gotta be next up. How ironic Rudy would be making these comments during Black History Month. Being from NYC and knowing that Rudy was a huge reason why this city was a powder keg waiting to explode into a race war. So if POTUS doesn’t love America what country does he believe?
Definitely didn’t see this coming but damn everybody you can think of has gone to sit down with the Minister for one reason or another. Maybe they needed that old school wisdom on how to deal with Bruce Jenner becoming a woman.
Spike Lee tells Pharell how America’s most popular actor Denzel Washington prepped for his astonishing performance in Malcolm X.
Here is an alternative method for dealing with the police instead of these Facebook rants and posts I have seen the last few months trying to convince the urban community to physically fight back against the police dept ,which ultimately will result in more black lives lost and at what reward? You have to outsmart your enemy and the police dept. is prepared and wants us to fight them physically in the street, which will just give them even more excuses to shed the blood of the people. Fight your enemy psychologically and not with emotions.
He spoke on the Donald Sterlings of the sports world but you guys didn’t listen.
The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan speaks on Lebron James and Jewish control in Sports and Entertainment. This lecture is entitled, ‘Who Are The Real Children of Israel: The Proof’ and was recorded on July 11, 2010.
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?
I let them explain it:

WASHINGTON — Homeland security officials improperly gathered intelligence on the Nation of Islam, a black Muslim group, but government rules were “unintentionally and inadvertently violated” and only publicly available information was collected, according to documents made public Wednesday.
One official wrote, “the organization despite its highly volatile and extreme rhetoric has neither advocated violence nor engaged in violence” and should not have been the subject of intelligence gathering. The documents were released Wednesday as part of a Freedom of Information lawsuit, but the DHS report itself was not released nor were any examples of what the analysts considered extreme rhetoric.

LMAO! With the bitter comes the sweet. These dudes are gonna wage a war of ideologies against Obama and use his commitment to two diverging groups (Black America vs. AmeriKKKa) or concepts of “America” against him. Although, it is only name-calling the strategy is clever and as long as it goes unchecked it can become ugly, especially if Obama starts shucking in the Big House (lol).
Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, another powerful Chicago-based political figure associated with the Rev. Jeremiah Wright and other long-time associates of Democratic Party presidential candidate Barack Obama, is leaving no doubt about what he thinks of the leader in the campaign for the White House.
He says when Obama talks “the Messiah is absolutely speaking.”
You can watch it for yourself on a newly posted YouTube video.
Addressing a large crowd behind a podium Feb. 24 with a Nation of Islam Saviour’s Day 2008 sign, Farrakhan proclaims, Continue reading
Now we all kinda got to know Gov. Rendell during the primary campaign season. He was staunchly for Hillary and he now seems to be going to bat for Sen. Obama. He probably is more of a straight talker then the so-called Maverick McCain. Check some recent statements he made aboout vice-presidential canidate Sarah Palin.
Bonus: Also threw in a video of (gasp) him honoring Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan!

Gov. Ed Rendell decried a double standard in the treatment of Sarah Palin on Monday, saying that if it was he who was at the center of the “troopergate” investigation, the press would be calling for his head.
“She [claims to be] a reformer,” said the Pennsylvania Democrat. “And yet she is being investigated on the charge that she used her power as governor to fire someone who was going through a messy divorce with a relative of hers. Could you imagine if I was doing the same thing in Pennsylvania? You would be calling for my impeachment.”
The remarks came at the end of a long list of criticisms that Rendell, one of the foremost supporters of Sen. Hillary Clinton in the Democratic primary, launched against the Republican vice presidential nominee. Ignoring the directive of the Obama campaign to focus attentions on McCain, Rendell called out Palin on everything from ethics to earmarks.

Journalist Harry Allen once called Islam “hip-hop’s unofficial religion.” This theme is echoed by Adisa Banjoko, unofficial ambassador of Muslim hip-hop, who says: “Muslim influence was at the ground floor of hip hop. Hip hop came from the streets, from the toughest neighborhoods, and that’s always where the Muslims were.”
Hip-hop’s Muslim connection came initially via the 5 Percenter sect, and later expanded to embrace Nation of Islam (NOI), Sufi, and Sunni Islam. Since the 1980s, there have also been shifts where 5 Percenters have moved to NOI or Sunni beliefs. The same artists’ back catalog may reflect both his 5 Percenter beliefs and his later NOI faith. Islamic iconography, philosophy, and phrases are in fact so widespread in hip-hop, they show up regularly even in the works of non-Muslim rappers.
Dayum, I ran into this clip over at Playahata.com while doing some research of Rev. Wright. Min. Louis Farrakhan tore CBS’ Mike Wallace a new one in regards to America’s “holier than thou” position it likes to take on when talking about “foriegn” aggressors. Classic. During a time when debate is so unbalanced on network TV you are almost begging for one of these stations to get Farrakhan and Rev. Wright in the same room with Bill O’ Reilly and Sean Hannity. Pay per view anyone?
