Nation of Islam Minister Louis Farrakhan on Sunday called on blacks nationwide to curb economic disparities by cutting back on excessive spending, pooling resources and investing in land...

The 79-year-old leader has often used the annual keynote address - part sermon, part lecture - to discuss current events and politics on a national platform, particularly after the election of the nationís first black president. But Farrakhan focused most of his new message on the Nation of Islam followers in the audience.

The Nation of Islam has more than 1,500 acres of farmland in Georgia.

Noting like paying wetbacks for pickin' cotton.

What strikes me about it is that after all these decades of running his Nation of Islam scam all they have is 1,500 acres? That ain’t diddly squat!

That is the collective intelligence of the black Muslim man. I'm not going to do the math, but is this all they can come up with after 40 acres and a mule? Oh, BTW, how many mules do they have to work that land?

When I saw the title I thought he might be advising blacks to invest in the markets. Which would be the surest way for the black community to stay in poverty for a few more decades thanks to the Community Organizer In Chief. But Screwy Louie's advice is actually pretty good as far as it goes in the above quote. They should have had 1,500 acres by 1975 though.

“Even though one of our own has reached the pinnacle of the American political system...” One of their own, indeed. It would be interesting to know how much “farmland” is owned by NOI/proxies, and the true nature of the “crops” being grown.

i was referring to their progress so far, based on what they started with after the Civil War. Holding on to 1500 acres isn't much. Just like having a civil society in any inner city when it is common anywhere else.

It was supposed to be an insult.

Yes, I know what you were talking about. I was trying to ignore the ignorance of it. This article is about Louis Farrakhan and his Nation of Islam not all black Americans many of whom have done quite well. Even more were doing well until LBJ came along.

If you are referring to the 90+% that voted for Obama ... then we have a problem. That isn’t ignorance. It is a fact of black America today.

And according to your other post you must think they are all Muslims as well as unintelligent. You’re living in a glass house throwing those stones.

I do not think Muslims are unintelligent. I think they are a vile, evil cult. They are an abomination. They have a false god and perpetuate evil. They belong in the 8th century.

I need only to point to they way the live, the way they treat their women and their great (sarcasm) advances in culture throughout the world. They rule the poorest nations in the world that lack the most basic human rights.

What do you expect from a people that pray in the direction of a moon rock everyday?

Take your glass house comment and shove it up your ass.

There’s a lot of cheap land in Detroit.

Apparently it was a city before the firestorm hit.

Farrakhan said blacks still had to rely on themselves, and not leaders, to improve their situation.

It's nice that the man can make some sense form time to time... of course, he's likely just using the ideas to simply enrich himself, but it's still nice to see it in print and getting out to lower information voters.
