Stealing Black DNA

(Taken from “Commonomics II: Sheep, Sheepdog and Evil Shepherd” p. 71-78″: )


The Sao Tome Enterprise

The Honorable Elijah Muhammad taught us that the new white race came to live with the original people 6,000 years ago.  Evidently at that time the people allowed these new white folk to live among them until they found out that they were devils.  After which they ran them form among them. The white man had to invent another tactic and that tactic was to raid and steal black woman, rape them to produce mulatto children, then raise those children like a new breed of cattle to go in among the original people to trick them into doing business with their white fathers. Take the island of Sao Tome as an example,

In a new book, Jews and Judaism in African History, author Richard Hull describes how Portuguese in 1470 found an “uninhabited” island 120 miles off the coast of the kingdom of the Kongo. In the 1480s the Portuguese began capturing slaves in the “slave rivers” of the Bight of Benin. After they captured Kongolese female slaves they would bring them back to this island and breed them with white Jews and conversos (Jewish converts to Christianity) until they had produced a mixed population of mesticos.  Some of these mesticos became rich and powerful on the island and laid the foundations not only of the trans-Atlantic slave trade but of the modern plantation system of agriculture that further evolved in the New World.(p. 91)

So how would you categorize these mesticos?  If you asked them, they would call themselves “Portuguese.” If you ask modern historians who want to blame the indigenous Africans for the slave trade, they would classify them as “Africans.”

We should look at what happened in Palestine 2,500 years ago in the same manner.  Were the “returnees” the Children of Israel or the Children of the Babylonian/Persian rapists?

According to the Bible, the male children that were captured by the Babylonians were castrated and made eunuchs to be (bell-whether) servants to the Babylonian leadership.  After King Hezekiah, king of Jerusalem, had entertained emissaries from Babylon, Isaiah the prophet declared: 2 Kings 20:17, 18

“17 Behold, the days come, that all that is in thine house, and that which your fathers have laid up in store until this day, shall be carried into Babylon: nothing shall be left, saith the Lord.

18 And of thy sons that shall issue from thee, which thou shalt beget, shall they take away; and they shall be eunuchs in the palace of the king of Babylon.”

A “eunuch” is a castrated male.

Included among them was Daniel who according to the Bible served Nebuchadnezzar, Cyrus and Darius, but was never recorded to have married or fathered children.  And since descent or lineage is passed down through the father, the dignitaries and royal families of Jerusalem could never have offspring to be “returnees”.  Therefore, the only candidates for “return” were children of the raped women who had been brought up in the house of Babylon and Persia to serve the aims, wishes and gods of their masters.

According to the Bible these “returnees” were not supposed to marry people who lived in Judea although these were supposed relatives. The invaders, Pharisees (sheepdogs), kept themselves separate from the indigenous masses (sheep) and ruled over them for Persia (Magi, evil shepherds).

I had accepted this idea of captivity and return until I read one line in a book by Okasha El-Daly called Egyptology: The Missing Millennium (2005).  It reads, “…it was suggested that a Babylonian king, Nebuchadnezzar, conquered Egypt and killed her lame pharaoh, then took back with him thousands of Egyptians who settled in Babylon.” (p. 16)  However, other historians argue that Nebuchadnezzar never entered Egypt.  Now before I bring more evidence on this point, I must refer us back to our introduction and the statement that The Messenger wrote about Jesus going to Jerusalem looking for the “lost sheep.”  We asked the question, “Who were these ‘lost sheep’ and how did they end up in Israel? Also remember from your Bible studies that Jesus was taken to Egypt when he was a little boy by his parents. Did he learn about these “lost sheep” while he lived in Egypt?

The Honorable Elijah Muhammad has warned us about the “Poison Book.” Now let’s show how it can be manipulated in the hands of a snake. According to the book of Ezekiel, the “Sovereign Lord” gave him a prophecy about Nebuchadnezzar conquering Egypt. Bible scholars understood the problem this would bring to their whole Jerusalem/captivity/return model if indeed Nebuchadnezzar had conquered a real prize or kingdom (Egypt) instead of just a city, Jerusalem.   However, to deny the fact that Nebuchadnezzar actually conquered Egypt and even built a huge fort there would make Ezekiel a false prophet and the Bible suspect. These passages from the 29th chapter of Ezekiel are illuminating from a number of perspectives.

Ezekiel 29:8-21 New International Version (NIV):

“‘Therefore this is what the Sovereign Lord says: I will bring a sword against you and kill both man and beast. Egypt will become a desolate wasteland. Then they will know that I am the Lord.

“‘Because you said, “The Nile is mine; I made it,” 10 therefore I am against you and against your streams, and I will make the land of Egypt a ruin and a desolate waste from Migdol to Aswan, as far as the border of Cush. 11 The foot of neither man nor beast will pass through it; no one will live there for forty years. 12 I will make the land of Egypt desolate among devastated lands, and her cities will lie desolate forty years among ruined cities. And I will disperse the Egyptians among the nations and scatter them through the countries.

13 “‘Yet this is what the Sovereign Lord says: At the end of forty years I will gather the Egyptians from the nations where they were scattered. 14 I will bring them back from captivity and return them to Upper Egypt, the land of their ancestry. There they will be a lowly kingdom. 15 It will be the lowliest of kingdoms and will never again exalt itself above the other nations. I will make it so weak that it will never again rule over the nations. 16 Egypt will no longer be a source of confidence for the people of Israel but will be a reminder of their sin in turning to her for help. Then they will know that I am the Sovereign Lord.’

17 In the twenty-seventh year, in the first month on the first day, the word of the Lord came to me: 18 “Son of man, Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon drove his army in a hard campaign against Tyre; every head was rubbed bare and every shoulder made raw. Yet he and his army got no reward from the campaign he led against Tyre. 19 Therefore this is what the Sovereign Lord says: I am going to give Egypt to Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon, and he will carry off its wealth. He will loot and plunder the land as pay for his army. 20 I have given him Egypt as a reward for his efforts because he and his army did it for me, declares the Sovereign Lord.


Now let us dissect these passages. First of all this is some pretty specific stuff. The “Sovereign Lord” was angry with Egypt because the people of Egypt claimed to have “made” the Nile River. Well this is true. The Ancient Egyptians did indeed build the Nile River as an engineer would build a road. You can see my proofs in I will not apologize: The resurrection of the Master Architect. But this “Sovereign Lord” is a real jealous fellow.

            Then in verses 13 and 14 the Egyptians would be taken away from Egypt for 40 years and then returned to “Upper Egypt.” Well Upper Egypt would be Aswan or Elephantine where a Jewish colony was indeed established by the Persians at about the same time that the Persians sent their colony of half-breeds into Palestine.  Since I don’t accept this exile and return to the same land, I will latter give a more realistic view of what happened.

In verse 19 the Sovereign Lord promises to pay Nebuchadnezzar for taking Tyre by giving him the “wealth” of Egypt.  So evidently what was taken by Nebuchadnezzar from the Jerusalem Temple was not enough payment. If a sane mind would compare the wealth of the Jerusalem Temple to the wealth of Egypt at that time, that sane mind would say that the “Sovereign Lord” could not have bought Nebuchadnezzar with the Jerusalem Temple’s wealth. There is no comparison. Egypt had at least 42 temples that were all bigger and had more gold in each of them than did the one temple in Jerusalem.

I find it most interesting that the writers of the Bible had knowledge of Egypt up to “Aswan” at the first cataract in Upper Egypt. However, there is no mention in the Bible of the pyramids or the Sphinx which were near modern Cairo where the Nile branches out into the Delta which is considered Lower Egypt, because the Nile runs South to North. At first I thought that the pyramids and Sphinx were not mentioned in the Bible because its authors never made it that far up into Egypt. But now I see that the authors of the Bible were jealous of the greatness of Egypt.  And this was why Egypt was such a great “prize” that the “Sovereign Lord” gave Nebuchadnezzar as payment for a job well done. The Bible begins to look more like propaganda produced by enemies of Egypt in Mesopotamia.


Fort Babylon in Egypt


As I studied Ancient Egypt and the pyramids I always wondered why was there a town or precinct called “Babylon” within the present city of Cairo. A 2010 book by Peter Sheehan, Babylon of Egypt, presents a history of Old Cairo based on new archaeological evidence gathered between 2000 and 2006 during a major project to lower the groundwater level affecting the churches and monuments of this area of Cairo known by the Romans as “Babylon.”

In his book Sheehan reprints a seventh-century account of John, the Coptic Bishop of Nikiu, of the conquering of Egypt by Nebuchadnezzar in 568 BC and the building of the fortress of Babylon:

“…Nebuchadnezzar the king of the Magi and Persians was the first to build its foundations and to name it the fortress of Babylon…Nebuchadnezzar came to Egypt with a numerous army and made a conquest of Egypt, because the Jews had revolted against him, and he named [the fortress] Babylon after the name of his own city…”(p. 38)


The location of this fortress was strategic. Not only was it at the apex of the Delta, but was connected to a canal which Necho II had errantly dug in his attempt to connect the Nile with the Red Sea.  After Necho II was defeated by Nebuchadnezzar at Carchemish in Northern Syria in 605 BC, Necho thought of digging a canal not far from the capital of Egypt, Memphis, to the Red Sea which would allow him to mount a naval attack against Nebuchadnezzar via the Red Sea, the Arabian Sea and the Persian Gulf.  When warned about the danger of making such a canal that could be used in the reverse against Egypt, Necho halted the construction even after 120,000 men had died in the undertaking.

However, the Nile itself after an exceptional flood level made its on channel through the unfinished canal.  This connection to the Red Sea allowed Nebuchadnezzar to enter Egypt at this very strategic point and conquer her.  Even though some modern historians do not want to accept the fact that Nebuchadnezzar accomplished this victory, the 200 meter by 400 meter fort named after his city is proof.

According to what we read in Ezekiel 29, Egypt lay desolate under the control of Babylon/Persia for 40 years bringing us to 528 BC. Cambyses enters Egypt and destroys temples of all the gods except the Jewish god at Elephantine in 525 BC. He tried to reach Ethiopia but failed.

518 BC – Darius orders codification of Egyptian Laws

502 BC – Codification completed

458 BC – Ezra writes Pentateuch and Judaism is born


Where did Ezra get the material to write the Pentateuch or Torah?

                Now that we know that the Pentateuch, first five books of the Bible, also called the Torah, was not in the possession of the Jews until their sojourn in Babylon.  According to Jeremiah 8:8 New International Version (NIV):

“‘How can you say, “We are wise,
for we have the law of the Lord,”
when actually the lying pen of the scribes
has handled it falsely?”


So “Jeremiah” agrees with The Honorable Elijah Muhammad that the Bible has been tampered with, however the question remains is where did Ezra and the other “scribes” get the raw material from which to translate and change? If you remember, Gerald Massey wrote that Ezra had rolls of papyrus written in Egyptian hieroglyphics: “…Ezra dictated the translation during forty days and nights, and the five scribes wrote down what they were told by him. Which they knew not, as they did not understand the original characters.” (Massey, 1987; p. 119)

Ezra himself is an enigmatic figure according to the Bible Unearthed. He shows up from nowhere, dictates the five books of Moses to a number of scribes, takes his new Torah to Jerusalem, then disappears.  Since he came to Babylon under the rule of Darius, we can now see where he may have gotten the raw materials from which to extract what he needed to please his patron, Darius. Darius had all the scribes and learned men of Egypt to spend 16 years transcribing what they saw on the walls of the temples in Egypt and place that information on papyrus rolls. (Remember what Gerald Massey wrote about these papyrus rolls.)

Sixteen years is a lot of time, therefore the volume of writings must have been immense. I visited Egypt in 1989 and the amount of writings on the walls of the few restored temples that I visited was tremendous.

Darius was a lot wiser than the Assyrians who conquered Egypt and took her capital, Memphis, in 667 BC, only to see Egyptians return from their original home, Ethiopia, kick them out and run them back to Turkey. Cambyses tried to get to Ethiopia but almost died in the deserts of Nubia before he could reach Ethiopia (see Appendix).  Darius took a different route. The Persians put half-breeds at the two gates of Egypt, Jerusalem and Elephantine, then they destroyed the temples, took all the books, then fabricated a new Book of history and a new religion for these new Jews, giving everybody a new identity based on the political and theological framework of Persia/Babylonia/Iran.  It worked.

Ben Ezra Synagogue

The Jews love their history and do all they can to control anything that they believe once belonged to them. A case in point is the decision by Abraham ibn Ezra of Jerusalem in 882 AD to purchase land within Fort Babylon for the erection of a synagogue which is called the Ben Ezra Synagogue or the El-Geniza Synagogue.  This was the synagogue whose geniza or store room was found in the 19th century to contain a treasure of abandoned Hebrew secular and sacred manuscripts. The collection, known as the Cairo Geniza, was brought to Cambridge, England at the instigation of Solomon Schechter and is now divided between several academic libraries. (

It may just be a coincidence that a synagogue set up by a Rabbi named after Ezra who is credited with restoring the Bible and probably had volumes of Egyptian manuscripts to work from, also was a storage house in the Babylon of Egypt for ancient Hebrew manuscripts. Could this be the place where Ezra actually did his work in the service of Darius who had the law of Egypt codified? I’m just thinking out loud.


Your father, the devil

John 8:33, 44

33 They answered him, “We are Abraham’s descendants and have never been slaves of anyone. How can you say that we shall be set free?”

44 You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.

Now let us go back to these words ascribed to Jesus in the Book of John. How can a people be Abraham’s seed, but never being a slave and whose father is “the devil”?  Jesus was arguing with the Pharisees, so let us look at them from the perspective of the paradigm that I have presented above; the so-called returnees to Jerusalem were the products from the rape of African/Egyptian women by the Babylonians/Persians.  Therefore, through the female they may have the seed of Abraham, but through rape, the seed of the devil, white man, was forcedly placed in them and that seed of the devil is what is arguing with Jesus.

Another clue to this paradigm is the name of the first governor of Judea after the “Captivity”, Zerubbabel which means “seed of Babylon.”  Zerubbabel was put in charge of collecting taxes for Persia and given the charge by Darius of building the Temple in Jerusalem. Since Zerubbabel had no Hebrew Bible, his main function must have been tax collection for Persia. The “seed of Babylon” takes on a new skin and shrouds itself in “mystery” as it passes from generation to generation, chapter to chapter up to Revelations.

Devils to My Left (Dedicated to my black and brown germ)

Devils to My Left (Dedicated to my black and brown germ)

By Ridgely Abdul Mu’min, 1999

Devils to my left,  Devils to my right,  Devils behind me, Devils in my sight.

But that’s alright, We still have to fight, Time to shed some light On some devils tonight.

So stick with me brother, hang with me tight, Time to shed some light on some devils tonight.

They tried to hide the truth, But hiding ain’t no use. Black man found the light Time to break loose.

It’s time to rock and roll, Fire down in my soul, Time to tell the story that never been told.

You thought you burnt my books, You dirty little crook, But your mind was too small to take a better look.

Yeh, we wrote it down, And put it on the ground, But made it so big that you couldn’t see around.

You only got six ounces of grafted brain. Here comes the light of truth, Time to start the flame.

You threw your evil rod, Now here comes the God, Muhammad, first name, Master Fard.

Taking down your god, Bust your little heart, Muhammad, first name, Master Fard.

But you don’t have to cry, And go away and die. Just give up your stinking little lie.

Why don’t you submit? Ah, the hell with it. Soon you’ll be a burning little bit.

Devils to my left, Devils to my right, Devils behind me, Devils in my sight.

But that’s alright, We still got to fight, Time to shed some light On some devils tonight.

So stick with me brother, hang with me tight, Time to shed some light on some devils tonight.

Time for us to start Playing with the gods, The black and brown germs in our hearts.

The devil came to visit my room one night. It scared me so bad, I almost died of fright.

He rose up on my ceiling Like a movie screen, He scared me so bad, I thought I had to scream.

But when I cooled down, And took a better look, Wasn’t nothing but my Brown germ from Muhammad’s book.

Then I turned back around, But I couldn’t hear a sound, But there was a war going down Between the black and the brown.


We are still arguing in our meeting halls, About why the Black man’s got to rise and fall, Trying to put the blame on everybody else, When we no darn well it ain’t nothing but our self.

Trying to point out who is the they and the them, When we are the they and we is the them.

We still are trying to act like we don’t understand, Yakub took him out, stood him like a man.

Took him out the sky and stuck him on a guy, And we still acting like we don’t know why.

We got 6,000 years of history, To help us solve this human mystery.

He pops up every ‘bout 2,000 years, Here he is again whispering in our ears.

He came up to me on my tractor one day, Trying to be my friend but nothing good to say.

Messing with my head, speaking in my mind, “Why you out here, just a wasting your time?

Them people up there don’t care about you. They are living large while you’re making do.”

Shut up satan and get thee behind, I ain’t got time for you to mess with my mind.

If I get off this tractor and go to my bed, Can you promise me we’ll all be fed?

If I quit now, go home and go to sleep, Can you promise me my soul to keep?

No, I didn’t think so, So you gotta go. Here’s my foot and there’s the door.

“No, the white man’s the devil brother, And I’m your friend.” Shut up Brown Germ, You ain’t nothing but the jinn.

See the brown germ is what The Egyptian called “Red”, And that’s what messed up Malcolm’s head.

We got Supreme Wisdom, But we don’t want to learn How to make them devils inside us burn.

We talking about cutting off four devils’ heads. What about the one hanging in your bed?

And I’m not talking about Your pretty little spouse. I’m talking about the devils in your God’s house.

“Oh no, not me, I’m not the one. I’m all down for the revolution.

If I got a chance To sit in that seat, My head wouldn’t swell up with conceit.”

Easy to say when you ain’t got power. Give him a position and sit him on the tower.

Give him a post With a big fat title, And watch that devil blow up like an idol.

“Alright now, I’m the head nigga in charge, Everybody get back, ‘cause I’m go be the god.”

Yeh, come out, come out, Where ever you are. I smell a skunk so you can’t be far.

Devil hiding on the Black man’s D.N.A. Trying to stick around till Judgment day.

Well now it’s time to come out and play. We got something for you to blow you away.

But you don’t have to cry, And go away and die, Just give up your stupid alibi.

Why don’t you submit? Oh, the hell with it. Soon we’ll be a burning little bit.

Devils to our left, Devils to our right, Devils behind us, Devils in my sight.

But that’s alright, We still better fight, Time to shed some light On some devils tonight.

We should have learned our lessons from the stories from the past,

‘Cause ain’t nobody here but our black….

We should have learned our lessons from the stories from the past,

Black Germ: Lessons from “Closing the Gap”

(Taken from “Commonomics: Developing a Post Yakub Economy”

Black Germ: Lessons from “Closing the Gap”

I would like to thank Minister Jabril Muhammad for his wonderful work entitled “Closing the Gap”. We thank Allah that he was in place to help the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan recover his sight after the departure of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad and for his ability to ask tough questions to Minister Farrakhan in the proper manner and put them together in this book for our study.

When I read through the “trials” of the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan and the “tests” that the Honorable Elijah Muhammad put him through, I asked myself if I could have passed those tests. The trials and tests that Minister Farrakhan was put through and his passing all of these tests made him fit to sit in the “Mercy Seat” of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad. Subsequent trials and tests were faced by him on the rebuilding of the Nation of Islam of which he has brilliantly executed and passed, that can be attributed to the mind, the heart and the will that was developed under the tests and trials of the Messenger when he was among us.

I want to focus just on the trials and tests before the departure of the Messenger as outlined in “Closing the Gap”. The majority of the trials and tests that I will mention are found starting on page 347 of “Closing the Gap”.

Just reading these trials, and imagining myself going through them as Minister Farrakhan did, had an effect on my heart and mind. Therefore, I thought that some type of helpful framework for self-analysis and personal development could be produced using those tests and trials. So I have developed this tentative test that readers of “Closing the Gap” can use to help them in their self-analysis.

Minister Farrakhan has stated that the Honorable Elijah Muhammad had promised him that the new “Book” from Allah would come through him. I am putting forward the hypothesis that Minister Farrakhan, himself, is that “Book”. Minister Farrakhan is the executioner of the Word of Allah and the first new Man, new Adam, of the New Era of Man. The Honorable Elijah Muhammad told us to look at Min. Farrakhan and listen to him. Then during Minister Farrakhan’s visit on the Wheel, the Minister said that he felt as though something was downloaded into him and that it comes out over time based on the time and circumstances as he works to rebuild the Nation of Islam, and ultimately save humanity.

Believers may see Minister Farrakhan as fulfilling Scripture or the lives of the prophets, and that he has done. However, according to the Minister, the Honorable Elijah Muhammad gave him a name but not its meaning. The Messenger also told the Minister that it was a good name and an attribute of Allah. Therefore “Farrakhan” represents a new attribute of Allah that we must become familiar with by studying and observing Min. Farrakhan. Min. Farrakhan becomes a standard for the future. He represents the best among us at this time and the best potential of us.

Unlike Jesus, whose actual written works we do not have, and what we have of his words in the Bible is hearsay, we have Min. Farrakhan’s own writings plus volumes of speeches and presentations on video and audio media. We now have an in-depth set of interviews from Bro. Min. Jabril Muhammad that reveal the motives of our Minister as he was executing the Word of Allah or manifesting the Word of Allah as taught to him by the Honorable Elijah Muhammad. According to Min. Farrakhan, his every step is presently guided by the Honorable Elijah Muhammad and Master Fard Muhammad on the Wheel. They are hidden but he is the executor of their commands and intent. Therefore to see and understand Minister Farrakhan is to understand an aspect of Allah.

Now down to the test. I have chosen 19 trials and/or tests. Others may find a different set of trials or tests. The four categories of responses are defined as: 1. “Passed”, I know I would have responded like Min. Farrakhan, 2. “Maybe”, but my circumstances are so different from Min. Farrakhan’s that I can not be completely sure, i.e. Min. Farrakhan gave up his music career, I gave up playing football, but I know that I was not pro material, while Min. Farrakhan was getting paid quite well for performing, 3. “Unsure”, I really don’t have a clue about what I would have done in that particular situation, and 4. “Failed”, I know I would have failed said test or trial at my past and present level of development.

I have given a numerical score of 3 for “Passed”, 2 for “Maybe”, 1 for “Unsure” and 0 for “Failed”. Therefore the highest score would be 19 x 3 or 57. Since Minister Farrakhan passed all of these tests, his score is 57.

I took the test and my total score was 25. Now I am not going to tell you specifically which tests that I think I would have passed or failed, because that’s my business. However, my score is very sobering.

My score tells me that I have a long way to go to come up to the standard of a “Believer”, “Follower” and “Executioner” of the Word as exemplified by the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan. Therefore, I pray to Allah to forgive my faults and forgive how my faults may have hindered someone else from properly seeing, responding to and helping the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan. However, I can now work towards changing my heart, mind and character to be more like the Minister’s and ultimately become more useful to both the Christ and the Mahdi. Remember, this is a personal test for each of our hearts, not something to be shared with others or compared to others.

With this brief introduction here are the cryptic representations of the tests that I gleaned from “Closing the Gap”. You have to read the full text of the events in “Closing the Gap” to really understand how to make an evaluation of how you might have responded:

  1. Giving up his musical career.
  2. Put in as Captain in Boston instead of Minister.
  3. Suffering extreme poverty in Boston.
  4. Falsely accused of stealing someone’s play.
  5. Test of loyalty between his mentor, Malcolm, and his leader, the Messenger.
  6. Reading a letter about him but not addressed to him in relations to how leadership in Chicago viewed him.
  7. Accepting a name without knowing its meaning and not bugging the Messenger about it.
  8. Giving back “lollypop” I: Tony Brown’s radio program “Is it too late”.
  9. Following orders by the Messenger to mock the leaders in Atlanta.
  10. Someone under the Minister being invited out to see the Messenger more than himself.
  11. Messenger seemed to reject the people of Min. Farrakhan’s birthright.
  12. Sitting in the Messenger’s seat during the “Theology of Time” series.
  13. Accused of being weak for allowing the Black Panthers to body search him.
  14. Accused of using secretaries to spy on the Messenger in the National House.
  15. Giving back “lollypop” II: Weekly national radio broadcast.
  16. Never hating the Messenger’s laborers or family even though they worked against the Minister’s success.
  17. Not taking money from other treasuries other than the minister’s salary treasury even though given permission by the Messenger to do so.
  18. Not killing or removing Sec. Maceo and Capt. Joseph after they messed up the Temple’s finances.
  19. Accepting seeming rejection when The Messenger asked the Minister to get a plane load of Black business people to fly to Chicago, and the Messenger seemingly snubbing them.

As Minister Farrakhan has matured and developed, he produces so much light that all you have to do is see him and you feel better.  Of course that depends on which side you are in the black-brown dichotomy. Is his strong attractive power attributable to just eloquence of speech or charismatic personality? Or are we so strongly attracted to him because of the love that he spreads like a sun in our midst?  Do we have to go through such trials as he did to burn out the brown germ and make the black germ dominant in our lives? Good questions…
