Farrakhan to Gang Members: Stop Behaving as ‘Savages’, Choose to Serve as Protectors Instead

Nation of Islam Minister Louis Farrakhan spoke out about economic empowerment and gun related violence in the black farrakhan founders daycommunity during his Saviours’ Day convention. He called on black people to rein in excessive spending and begin pooling their resources to invest in land.

Farrakhan, 79, used his speech to lay out an action plan to ”control means of production” and to produce food and clothing. He also cautioned blacks against believing that Obama’s election would somehow resolve problems in the black community.

“Even though one of our own has reached the highest pinnacle of the American political system, his presence has not, cannot and will not solve our problems,” Farrakhan told the crowd.

Min. Farrakhan also said his plan to curb gun violence included reaching out to gang members and encouraging them to become protectors of their people. Farrakhan said gang bangers are  ”natural soldiers” and could be taught “the science of war” to become protectors of the Nation of Islam’s assets in the future.

“The Second Amendment has no relevance to the black community in this sense,” he said. “All your weapons are illegal and you’re using them like a savage people.”

Saviours’ Day commemorates the founding of the Nation of Islam. Approximately 10,000 people attended the convention at the University of Illinois at Chicago.

    Isn’t it amazing that the government of America can go into Iraq,find Saddam,murder him and destroy the country but can’ control the guns that are coming into Chicago or the murders? Why do we continue to allow the white man to trick us. Some of us think we ware free but we are not Racism is alive and well. If you don’t believe me walk through a white neighborhood one night and see how long it takes before the police come to talk to you.

    Minister Farrakhan is totally right. We get all worked up if someone uses the words “animal” or “savage” when talking about the behavior of some black people. Before you get your knickers in a twist, remember that Minister Farrakhan did NOT say they were savages; he said they need to stop ACTING LIKE SAVAGES. There’s a difference. This is for you, DavianLRavenStone.

    Okay so Minister Farrakon has been preaching the same stuff for centuries, why doesn’t he send some of his followers into Chi-Iraq and teach them to stop all of the Gang violence and how to get jobs and education our fore fathers like Dr King, Malcom X to name a few fought hard for our rights probably can’t rest in peace and are turning over in there graves at the savagery going on in our streets today witb all of this violence. Too many want President to be some big savior for the people. I am so disccusted with what is going on with this lost generation, where is the togetgerness, wake up black america, stop the slinging of dope that is killing rapidly, join Gods gang. Lady J

      I think what is important to remember here is that there are underlying root causes for the why young Blacks are acting today. It’s very difficult for anyone to be rational and objective if they look around and see so much wealth in this country and they feel precluded from obtaining it. Folks are always talking about you can be what you want to be, yeah some folks can much more so than others. When all people are more able to participate in the socio-economic processes in America, then we may see some of the ills discussed resolved. I think that if everything failed for me even as a nearly thirty-year government employee, I might just resort to illicit behavior to ensure my family’s survival as well!

        Willie Lynch did his job well. It amazes me that there are still black people who don’t know who Willie lynch is. Stop talking about black people uniting. It will never happen. Stop talking about how many black men are in prison. The majority of them are in prison because they did something to another black person. The majority of black people hate each other. Black people are more of a danger to black people that the white man. We don’t hear many black people talking about the white man anymore. They always refer to the ” government” . We have a black president but the white man is still preventing him from accomplishing most of the things that he wants to get done. We as black people are disgusting. We allow the schools to educate our children without teaching our children about their race. We know they are not getting a education at home because most black women are more concerned about their weave than what thei childrenre learni in school. The father is absent because heis in prison for killing or harming another black man or woman. We don’t want to Listen to Farrakhan because he is a Muslim. We listened to Dr King because he was a Christian minister. If he had been a Muslim we would not have accepted him. Young black men don’ have role models.neither do young black women. We are pathetic.

    There need not be giving no more hand outs to corporate America—- hand outs in the form of – tax abatements– off shore tax incentives– poor peoples labor throughout the prison industrial complexes– that the government hands out to those white folk who owns businesses that use the labor of the brothers and sisters that are locked up I can safely say-thats a handout- let’s not be so shallow when we say looking for the government to give one a handout- military complexes that are forged from private industries that receive government handouts– why are the poorest of poor in America accused of waiting for a handout– 500 years of open slavery – and present day prejudices- who in the world can help us – but us- the question is – HOW?

    A new mind is the answer, but rebirth would have to take place because we are so embedded in the this sick way of thinking it would take some divine intervention to turn this thing around——-it makes me sad to see how confused we really are–how we t*****e each other with MIND GAMES having no intention of solving any of the problems in our community—–we don’t have a clue where to begin getting rid of the monsters that are among us, or who they really are.—-yet we think we’re smart but we are really BLIND and going in CIRCLES—- probably the way it was meant to be.PEACE!!!

    I’d previously given up viewing, much less, wasting my time commenting on this site because of the lack of intelligent affiliation. I am quite pleasantly surprised to see thoughtful and decent commentation today. I’m not narcissitic, so I don’t think everyone needs to have the exact same opinion as I do, but I welcome intelligent exchange of information and ideas.

    Mr. Perot, I would that you could reach ten people. Young African Americans need so much to hear what you have to say. We’re going on and on about a prison industrial complex and at the same time bringing infant after infant into this world who will begin and end their lives in poverty- in both living conditions and of the mind. If there is a prison industrial complex, it is being fueled and furnished by teen mothers and absent fathers who can’t buy a week’s worth of infant formula.

    Thank you, Mr. Perot, for admonishing our people to get education, job training and technical skills that can be honed to fit an ever-changing high tech world. Black folk are so far behind because we didn’t prepare ourselves for a changing world. We gangsta-leaned back in our Cutlasses and the world passed us on the right. Now we want the President to make it all alright. I saw a comment saying, “…large companies should be paid an incentive to hire blacks to help the problem of black unemployment…”. Folk have lost their minds! Handouts are going to become a thing of the past. Government aid, as a temporary emergent assistance is sometimes necessary. It was never meant to be a way of life. Black folk had better stop thinking the rest of the world owes them something or the worse is yet to come.

    Farrakhan is not the answer and I know he want’s change as most people do. He want’s to be the gang leader with a army of angry black men that only populate 20 percent of the American population. His army would be wiped out if he started a race riot.I wish DR. Martin Luther King was alive ,I believe things would be so much better. Our congress is so corrupt and that needs to be dealt with. Every thing is a mess and violence is not the answer. Work hard,find god,love you wife and children and quit acting like a thug…Peace

      Do you know how you sound? Please stop talking like a coward, and understand the mind of Farrakhan if he has not lead us into that type of battle yet he will not without a good reason, but it’s your thinking that hurts us as a people. I ask you to go and find strength some where because your going to need it, in the worst way! Truth has come to you~ It’s Hour Time Now http://www.hourtimenow.com
