There is another lie said about Minister Louis Farrakhan, in regards to the 10,000 Fearless he called for.
Ignorant people claim that his call for 10,000 fearless was a battle war cry to kill all white people. Despite The Minister’s explanation of what it actually is, there are still those who refuse to understand. Seriously, have any of these people heard themselves and realized how ridiculous their accusations sound?
“Farrakhan wants The 10,000 Fearless to kill all white people!”
Ok first of all, how? There are about 19.7 million white people in America alone. Each 10,000 Fearless member would have to murder about 1,970 white people. They have to go on a hunting spree and kill that many people each?
Secondly, by what method will this killing take place, if the Nation Of Islam doesn’t believe in carrying any weapons? How will 19.7 million white people die off without being struck by any weapons? 10,000 people are just going to start knocking on doors and murder white people with their bare hands? This sounds like a fictional book, not reality.
Lastly, if Minister Farrakhan is the Commander in Chief in this army, why would he tell his strategy on live broadcast? If that were a true declare of war on white people, why would he ever give them the entire game plan to fight against? That would make him the worst Commander ever. You never tell your enemy where exactly you’ll be, how you’ll come, what methods you’ll use, none of that.
“He said kill those who kill us! That means white people!”
No, it just means fight with those who aggress against us first. He explained the law of retaliation , which is backed up in both Bible and Qur’an. The Minister made a point that our American government is supposed to give a death penalty, or life in prison, to those who unjustly kill us. He is not lying.
18 U.S. code § 1111 clearly states: “Within the special maritime and territorial jurisdiction of the United States,
Whoever is guilty of murder in the first degree shall be punished by death or by imprisonment for life; Whoever is guilty of murder in the second degree, shall be imprisoned for any term of years or for life.”
However, the government has not been doing their job. If the government doesn’t intercede in our affairs, that is when we take matters into our own hands. Who do you call when your own government doesn’t help you?
Also, if you automatically assume he meant white people when he said “kill those who kill us,” are you admitting that white people are in fact killing us? Just a question….
“Farrakhan is racist. The 10,000 Fearless is meant to scare white people.”
News flash: Black people cannot be racist towards white people. In order to be racist, you have to have collective, systemic power over underprivileged groups to affect their lives on a plethora of levels. White people have never and can never experience racism. All I’ve seen the 10,000 Fearless do is unite, address gang conflict resolutions, and provide community service for others. How scary. If the 10,000 Fearless is just a tactic to scare all white people, then I wonder why unity frightens you. In all of the months they have worked in our communities, the 10,000 Fearless has not harmed anyone. Please show me the white person who has been harmed ever since the beginning of this movement?
The lies against the 10,000 Fearless is to dehumanize black people in our anger of mistreatment, while simultaneously defaming Minister Farrakhan. It has the intention to label us as violent people, with a 400 year old grudge and no sense whatsoever. Anything that is seen to be even the slightest bit a threat to systemic white supremacy is labeled a threat against white people. I can assure you that no violence has ever been taken place since the call for the 10,000 Fearless.
If black people were as violent as white people portray us to be, there would be no more white people.
