[B]I think African America definitley needs a banner to call its own. That's why I designed one in 1996. You see it on every post I make on the board.

It is true for African American just as it is true for every other ethnicity, and ancestral nationality in the world. The discussion of the flag is...

Peace..... Indeed it is...Mote it be. History tells a different story.

Prophet Muhammad was a student of Islam, not it's originator. The NOI is not inventing this claim, it is one of the most important and pronounced aspects of the prophets identity.

Wow! A tiny note: They are not as ORGANIZED as thought. Having trouble with the transition. Trump can't find qualified repubs to man major agencies. The watch dogs WON'T let him appoint ANYONE he wants. They have to be cleared [no leftists or nationals]. As why there is currently much controversy of his choices and why there's a slight delay. Still don't trust Trump. On the bright side I do smell a loophole. Kinda. Plus people are waking up from the shock. This is a wait and see situation.

At least some White Americans, 'get it', when it comes to the racist fascism that Trump is making sure will take over the United States Government.
