- Louis Farrakhan, 1993 Savior's Day address


Do I need to know any more "true history"?




It is eassy to take a comment by the Minister and spin it....

Who is the "you" that he continually references in the statement? Clearly it's people who are not in the NOI who might believe the NOI had something to do with Malcolm's death.



Given this, the statement really doesn't require "twisting" ... how else would a reasonable person interpret it?



The "you" is speaking of those who accuse the NOI outside of the organization, however, I do not think he was responding to the accusation of murder. There are those who accuse the NOI of mishandling Malcolm during the time he was removed from the Ministry and given a 90 day probationary period from leadership.

There are those who accuse The Honorable Elijah Muhammad, and others of unfairly silencing Malcolm after his statements about the assassination of JFK.

The "Chickens coming home to roost" comments earned Malcolm a public reprimand, many didn't like this, nor did they like the subsequent suspension.

There have always been those seeking to formally indict Minister Farrakhan for the murder of Malcolm based on his writings in the Muhammad speaks Newspaper, however, they have failed to compile enough evidence to proceed with a prosecution. The above statements made in 1993 would have been nothing less than an admission, however, clearly, others who studied the lecture found nothing of worth to use in court.
