I bear witness there is but one God, Whose proper name is Allah, and I bear witness that Muhammad is His messenger. I greet all of you, my dear brothers and sisters, with the greeting words of peace:
I want to thank Brother Ishmael, and all those who spoke before me: I thoroughly enjoyed every word that you spoke, that I heard: Brother Abdul Akbar Muhammad on behalf of numerous international dignitaries who sent greetings and well wishes in support of “10.10.15” (which included a special video presentation from St. Vincent & Grenadines Prime Minister Ralph Gonsalves regarding reparations and Caribbean socio-political affairs); Charles Steele, Jr., president of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC); Dr. Wayne Watson, president of Chicago State University; U.S. Army veterans Rochelle Crump, president of National Women Veterans United and Community, and Sel Dunlap, board member of Lawndale AMACHI Mentoring Program in Chicago; a special video presentation on vaccinations by former U.S. senator Bobby Kennedy, Jr.; and speaking on the rights of Native Americans and the Indigenous, Jay Winter Nightwolf, originator and host of The American Indian Truths radio show, and Phyllis Young, Sioux Tribal Government At-Large, from Standing Rock Reservation in North Dakota.
I pray that with the words that were spoken, that were heard by internet throughout the United States and throughout the world that the world will see, through the words that these illustrious brothers and sisters spoke, what our intentions were for “10.10.15.” I thoroughly enjoyed, and was enlightened and inspired, as I believe you were, to hear such beautiful, soulful representation of our soldiers, our Native Americans—all of those who had words to say … I thank Allah for all of you.
I would also like to mention three very, very, very special brothers, Nicolaus David, Azubile Akunne and Lalibela Emmanuel, members of The Cycle of Peace organization. If there ever was a demonstration of courage, a demonstration of the power of the will to overcome any impediment or obstacle in the path, these brothers showed what they could do by getting on their bicycles and riding 800 miles to Washington, D.C. These are giants. And they are in the company of everyone that spoke today. They are the demonstration of “The 10,000 Fearless.” They honored me, and us, beyond words, to do what they did.
There are just a few things that I want to say, and I hope you will be patient with me; but my first thought was on “the disappointment.” There were some who wanted to speak, and time and circumstances did not permit it. And some who felt it was right that they speak, and it is, because they do good work, and then were disappointed when they were not allowed to speak. I was hurt for my brother Jay Winter Nightwolf … And, I know that the Native People have something to say to us; and if anything, other things should have taken less precedence. But the Native and Indigenous People of this hemisphere must not ever again be considered an “afterthought.”
Those Native People, our Mexican brothers and sisters (who desired to address those gathered on The Mall): These are not ego seekers. These are people with a serious message, and serious demands—not that the government does not know. But I wanted the world to see and hear: What the Indigenous have suffered, are suffering. What the Mexicans, who are Indigenous people—the real ones—have suffered, are suffering and what we suffer.
I wanted the world to see the hypocrisy of America, traveling all over the world to tell others how they should live; and telling us that “this one” needs to be sat down, and “that one” needs to be sat down, and my brother Muammar Gadhafi of Libya “needed to be sat down”…
America created the refugee problem that is now plaguing Europe—because America, England, France and Italy wanted to kill a man who has done more for Libya and more for Africa than all of these bastards put together.
I didn’t “curse”: I know The Illegitimate Children when I see them, and when we suffer from their wickedness.
