In the Name of Allah, The Beneficent, The Most Merciful
It’s seems like every time we open up our Facebook or Twitter pages, we’re brought to both rage and tears from the countless viral videos of black people, both men and women, who are being brutally harassed and murdered by law officials during routine traffic stops. Statistically, a black person is killed once every 28 hours by police and the majority of those people are unarmed.
When those who are sworn to protect and serve, continually and consistently target and murder a particular group of people, black people, eventually, injustice will be the cry by the people effected. It is clear that we are not receiving justice.
However every human being should be able to feel pain, when they see another human murdered no matter the color of the slain. With the recent deaths starting July 4th 2016 #DelrawnSmall, July 5th #AltonSterling, July 6th #PhilandoCastile, July 7th #PiedmontPark Hanging, July 9th #AlvaBraziel, you can see the nation wide protests forming.
The youth of many different ethnicities are taking to the streets, with the intent of using their collective voices to raise awareness to the fact that #BlackLivesMatter.
One of the most popular and dominant chants is “No Justice, No Peace”. The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan teaches us that Justice is The Law that distinguishes between right and wrong. This principle of balance is in each of us from our Creator. Justice is The Principle of Fair Dealing.
“No Justice, No Peace” means that if Police Officers are allowed to murder us with no indictments nor any real repercussions for their actions then we are not going to allow them to go back to business as usual. No quietness, no enjoying vacations time with their families while they enjoy paid administrative leave, no peace for the murders of our brothers and sisters.
However do we really mean what we say or is “No Justice, No Peace” just idle words followed up by no action. Look at this example of a sister protesting, she was being interviewed by the local news channel then arrested unjustly. This happened in front of the crowd, and all that was done as a result of the injustice was the crowd shouting “No Justice No Peace” Louder. Watch below

I am NOT advocating that indiscriminate violence towards the police, the system etc is the answer. However we should utilize protests and mass gatherings of our people to create a serious mindset, that we are fed up and we want change now and are prepared to get freedom by any means necessary.
The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan summarizes it perfectly, ”Don’t let this white man tell you that violence is wrong, everything that he got, he got it by being violent” (see clip for more).
We as a people should not allow our enemy to make us feel guilty for defending ourselves against their acts of violence on us. In fact its hypocritical for our oppressors to keep instructing us to be peaceful when they unjustly use force, pepper spray, guns and others means of violence against us. The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan also explains perfectly how our unity can be used to end the violence against black people.
We cannot afford to be the generation that continues the false flagging operation for justice.
When the honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan made the divine call for #JusticeOrElse, it struck fear in our oppressor because he (our open enemy) knows the type of leadership that made the call; one that is willing to give up his life for freedom.
We must possess that same spirit, so when we say “No Justice, No Peace” police will think twice about murdering us in cold blood.
Let us mean what we say, and say what we mean. If we don’t get justice, then why should our open enemy have peace?
