Reply to "Did Kanye say something wrong?"

Something was left unsaid. I’ve read NOI material for years and once believed Min. Farakkhan’s claims that that Jews and not Arabs were most heavily involved in the Atlantic slave trade. His claim that 3 out of 4 slave holders were Jews was a first red flag. Down South? That’s when I began to suspect that he was a bigot playing up to Muslims in the MENA region. How many black folks have Jewish last names from  Massa? No, these are English and Irish names. We know that’s what the X is about.  Getting rid of those cursed names is right. Let’s be honest. Min. Farrakhan’s claims that 3 out of 4 plantation owners were Jews is a lie. Whoopi "Goldberg", and her name is for stage, is one of the few Jewish surnames. It is  known that Arabs have been in the slave trade for 1400 years. Min  Farrakhan tries too hard to change facts and by this he makes himself a smaller man.  It is why he is not a historically great man. Malcolm X was going in the direction of greatness. Farrakhan’s  response in the video is weak, over done. And I’m not defending the ADL, treatment of Palestinians  in Israel or worked up over Kanye’s rap, . Mandela was a transcendent unifier. Malcolm was going in that direction after he came back from Mecca.  He defended his own first but he began to see the big picture. That’s the One.
