“Our people are a beautiful people; all they need to bring out their true beauty is to be loved; and to be loved means to feed them the knowledge that will remove the blight of ignorance which makes us the playground for the wicked (Satan). The love that I am referring to is not this emotional feeling that is not accompanied by duty. I am referring to the awesome Power of Allah’s (God’s) Love that is bound up in His Word.”—The Honorable Minister @louisfarrakhan #Love #The1stWork #TruthTrafficking
Ms. Juanita aka “The Kool Cup Lady” is a mother of the Southeast Houston community we’ve been consistently pushing on the corners and going door to door in. The young people adore her. She has become our family and she always expresses her appreciation and love for the work Allah is blessing us to do weekly in the area. And in the midst of a very serious turbulent moment today, she was comforted by our presence that de-escalated a violent situation that could have possibly led to gunfire. All Praise is Due to Allah. We thank Allah for The Example & Guidance of The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan. He just said on The Cliff Kelley Show, “The F.O.I. is out in the streets; out in the worst neighborhoods trying to bring peace. We could do more, but we need your help…Don’t stand on sideline and just watch for us.” #Farrakhan #TheFinalCall #mission #squashthebeef #2FrontWar [📸 @lintonmuhammad]

(FinalCall.com) – As news articles and media reports are replete with stories of people across the globe targeted and killed because of their religious beliefs and groups like ISIS killing Christians, Min. Farrakhan used a selfless act of a Muslim sister to demonstrate true principles that should be exhibited by Believers in God. The Nation also does not follow the old world of what is called Al-Islam, he added.

WASHINGTON (FinalCall.com) – The movie Selma is, and will likely remain, one of the most talked about films of 2015.
(Source: FinalCall.com) – The video of Cleveland Police fatally shooting 12-year-old Tamir Rice has angered residents and activists in the city. In a country already under a global microscope sparked by events in Ferguson, Mo. and a grand jury decision to not indict police officer Darren Wilson in the shooting death of Michael Brown, Jr., 18, this latest incident of an officer involved killing of a young, Black male has Cleveland on edge.
Long-time Cleveland activist Mariah Crenshaw told The Final Call when she heard about Tamirâ€™s shooting and viewed the video she was angry. [READ MORE]

FERGUSON, Mo. (Source:Â FinalCall.com) – Physical fires and fiery passions were ignited here with the decision not to charge officer Darren Wilson in the killing of unarmed Black teenager Michael Brown.
WASHINGTON (FinalCall.com) – For two solid weeks, even after disgraced agency chief Julia Pierson was forced to resign, the U.S. Secret Serviceâ€”tasked by Congress after the 1901 assassination of William McKinley to protect the U.S. president, vice president and their familiesâ€”dominated newspaper headlines, broadcast news coverage, and social media. The agency virtually melted down into what appeared to be a pool of incompetence, or worse.
The breaches of security around President Barack Obamaâ€”the most threatened commander-in-chief in U.S. historyâ€”and at the White House seemed inexplicable. â€œIt will never happen again,â€ a grim Ms. Pierson told a House oversight committee which confronted her with reports that Army veteran Omar Gonzalez allegedly scaled the 7-foot-high, wrought iron fence on the Pennsylvania Avenue side of the executive mansion, and penetrated deeper into the unlocked building than the agency first reported on Sept. 19 when the intrusion occurred.
Mr. Gonzalez apparently cleared the fence, ran across the 150-yard lawn through an unlocked front door, overpowered one officer, ran past an unguarded stairway leading to the First Familyâ€™s residence, and was finally subdued by an off-duty officer in the massive East Room, according to The Washington Post.
One day after her Capitol Hill testimony Ms. Pierson resigned, replaced on an interim basis by Joseph Clancy, who headed Mr. Obamaâ€™s first protective detail after he took office in 2009. But the flood of revelations of seriousâ€”even life threatening security breachesâ€”continued to cascade into public view. [Read More]

FERGUSON, Mo.â€”The role of the media is supposed to be to protect the public by uncovering truth, but there is an old adage about freedom of the press: Freedom of speech belongs to those who can afford it. We could add â€œfreedomâ€ of the press belongs to those who control it and we need to understand the press role as a major partner, backer and participant in the oppression of Blacks and framing of issues.
Over the past two days, White media outlets, CNN and those following CNN in particular, have spun the story of the audio recording that seems to have captured the shots fired by officer Darren Wilson in his confrontation with Michael Brown, an unarmed Black teenager.
Remember this whole crisis begins because officer Wilson decides to exert authority over two young Black men walking down a pretty narrow street that winds through an apartment complex. Itâ€™s not a major highway, itâ€™s a little street. Itâ€™s summer time and Mike Mike and friend Dorian Johnson were walking to Mike Mikeâ€™s grandmotherâ€™s home. The officer curses and orders them out of the street. They reply that they are almost at their destination. Then officer pauses, backs his patrol car up, blocks the two young men, and an assault begins: Mike Mike is assaulted as the officer attempts to grab him from by the neck. There is a struggle and the friend says the officer fires a shot.
The two friends, terrified, flee. The officer shoots, Mike Mike is hit. Mike Mike turns with his hands up. Witnesses, public witnesses, say his hands were up and he was in a surrender position. They all say the officer pauses and keeps shooting. The line of shots and their concentration fits the identified eyewitness accounts.
Yet CNN is using sources casting doubts on the audio tape, one â€œsourceâ€ went so far as to say his first thought was CNN was being â€œpunkedâ€ by a shock jock who had put together this recording. Other sources have cast the audio in a negative light and raised questions and scenarios that have never been previously discussed:
â€¢ Perhaps the officer was reloading. That has never come up from witnesses, that is conjecture.
â€¢ Michael was rushing the officer. Again intentional lying and framing the scenario. There was never any account early one that the young man was charging an armed officer. So a young man runs away from an armed officer who is shooting, then turns around and charges the same armed officer? Madness. Explicable because the forces of White supremacy, with the media as a willing partner, must protect themselves.
â€¢ There audio is suspect because it surfaced two weeks into the crisis in Ferguson, say CNN experts, who are mainly former law enforcement or those connected with the police and prosecutorial industrial complex. This is one-sided analysis from a group of experts who see things through a single lens. Audio two weeks late? It was CNNâ€™s fault. According to CNN host Don Lemon, the tape was given to a CNN producer in Ferguson, Mo., and the person who gave the audio tape thought the tape was going to Lemon. There was some kind of mix up and the audio tape languished until it surfaced a couple days ago.
â€¢ The officer was possible hurt and trying to recover, say White media experts say. But that lie has already been debunked by CNN, which said a report of eye injuries to Wilson on an x-ray were untrue. This clearly focuses on the problem with the resounding voice and view and frame of White media. It comes up clearly when talking heads are assembled who have little actual firsthand information. The major media give information and at times report accurately, at times the reporting is suspect, and the analysis is ubiqituous and off-base, and Black experts rarely seem willing to challenge, confront or correct their White counterparts who are in error, uttering half-truths and painting pictures that make no sense.
â€¢ If anchors and analysts are not prepared, or weakly prepared, on leaning toward the police view, the analysis of the momentâ€”which seems to be intent on raising doubt about the audio tapeâ€”drowns out other voices and is seen as true by viewers. Many of whom are not drawing a clear distinction between straight reporting and someoneâ€™s opinion.
It is criminal and irresponsible that CNN and other â€œresponsibleâ€ media outlets have tried to equate a single anonymous radio interview from â€œJosie,â€ a reported friend-of-a-friend-of-a-friend of Officer Wilson who heard about how he was attacked and responded with eyewitness accounts and video from Blacks who live in the community and could easily be targeted by police. While Josie hides, speaks and is elevated to the place of a credible witness, she is not credible. Does she even exist at all? Then law enforcement sources, the same sources who Black people donâ€™t and should not trust, are used by White media to verify her account. This is like going to players on the same team and asking one team member to vouch for his teammate.
What happened the old standard of media skepticism and questioning authority and a predisposition to understand those in power have a tendency to withhold truth and cover up? We still donâ€™t have a police report from the actual shooting incident. What is the problem? Why a delay?
We have seen the police and prosecution industrial complex galvanize and the attempt to tarnish and slander the shooting victim. The Ferguson police chief showed an image from a video that purported to be Mike Mike leaving a store and in a disagreement with a shop owner. The chief, who later admitted the image had nothing to do with the conflict with officer Wilson and was relieved of his command, described the store incident as a strong arm robbery. This power figure in the White establishment felt safe and secure in spewing this slander.
As attorney Benjamin Crump told Lemon, the only witnesses are those who have come forward on the record, spoken with media and law enforcement and whose accounts and motivations are being investigated.
Whereâ€™s Josie? The account of a single, unknown, unidentified White woman counts more than the combined eyewitness accounts and videotaped accounts of Black young women and young men who witnessed the shooting.
White supremacy and White media are cooperating at their best.
Why doesnâ€™t CNN have sources who talk about how foolish it would be for someone to try to fake a tape like this and how easy it would be to uncover such a gross, asinine and dangerous thing. The owner of the tape is not an unknown person. The owner of the tape has a lawyer and has been questioned by the FBI. While his public identity is not known, he is known to law enforcement and would surely face prosecution if he faked this thing.
Why is the media so concerned?
Officer Wilson represents the established White Power structure and the structure that controls the lives of Black people, especially with these small police departments that dot the suburbs around St. Louis. He must be vindicated because if he is not vindicated, then the system of White Superiority is exposed. Not the silly framing of race usually given but an entire system constructed to protect and benefit Whites and control Black behaviorâ€”both consciously and subconsciously as Dr. Frances Cress Welsing, author and brilliant psychologist, notes.
The White Media, for all its talk of ethics and integrity, is part of the same power structure and must protect White interests. Accept their misinformation at your own risk.
