During his latest sermon for the Nation of Islam, Minister Louis Farrakhan addressed the protests and controversies surrounding Ferguson, MO. police officer Darren Wilson, who fatally shot Micheal Brown.
Farrakhan said, “With 67 percent of black people you have to live under a white mayor with 67 percent white people you cant make the laws that govern that town. Now if that’s the condition let me set the stage for Michael Brown. See I don’t know about the store they say he strong armed somebody and took some cigars but I know this, coming to Chicago … when you live in the hood you don’t control no economy so you have Arab store owners that don’t give a damn about you and have no respect for you. You got Korean, you got Chinese, you got other people taking the money out but not giving a damn thing to this community. I imagine that blacks under those conditions suffer everyday.”
Speaking about Ferguson, Farrakhan said, “That town is a microcosm of whats going on all over the country. Black men are being shot down but the courts don’t give us justice.”
