Reply to "Farrakhan says blacks must heal religious rift"

We are not poor in material strength but [there is] poverty in terms of the mind and spirit."---Farrakhan

I admire Farrakhan's ability to relate the points of talks.

Minister Farrakhan is good for African America.

Religion and politics, however, are incompatible to a healthy political entity.

Religion, therefore, cannot be the solution socio-political parity for African American-Americans.

When we look closely it becomes clear that religion has been a resource for our survival, AND the anchor that stablilized and gave direction to our subjugation.

Religion helped, and continues to help, keep us from being who were are.

Religion continues to help keep us down.

Consider Election 2004.

Religion cannot be the answer.
