I’m watching the “news” on TV, while I’m finishing this article, that contains this photograph of the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan. I made it, as part of a statement. I’m repeating it.
Today is September 1, 2010. I’m mentioning this, because it bears witness to the essence of my witness of Minister Farrakhan’s importance.
This very short article, is about the man, who was given the root solution–from God–of the problems of America, that focus’ on Black people and all original people of America and therefore, the world.
It is easier for anybody, who reads the Bible, to start by understanding why Allah produced Moses, and then gave him Aaron, as a helper to solve that problem. Later on, that relation was made, for us to see the relation between Paul and Jesus and our problems, plus.
Does this involve the power of both Aaron and Paul to communicate? Was this a sign of Minister Farrakhan’s power to communicate? Yes! Definitely!
Is this the time when we must understand, Daniel 12:9 “Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end … .”
We must understand that we are living in, “the time of the end.”
The following words came from a talk, I made in San Diego, California on December 3, 1995, that I titled, “A Valuable Blackman.”
“My Dear Brothers and Sisters, I have a very important subject to review. You already know this. But I just want to review for our benefit.
“And those of you who are new to this teachings, or don’t have it all together, in your head, I hope that this, what we’re going to cover for the next hour or two, will cause you to make the kind of study that you deserve to make for yourself, about a very important Black man–the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan.
“Needless to say, any man, who can summon a million, or more people, to one spot and the government could not stop that, is a man about whom you should know much. And not to take the time, to avail yourself, or not to find out how you can learn more about him is to do yourself a disservice.
“A brief consideration of the true value of the Honorable Minister Farrakhan in the narrowest of term is the subject of this talk. Greatness in and of itself is meaningless except in terms of one value.
“Value is best measured in terms of service. Even though it would be taken as this author’s personal bias, nevertheless, the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan is a most valuable man in the sight of the Two who back him, namely Master Fard Muhammad and the Honorable Elijah Muhammad and to those who are with him.”
(That word with is a very big word here. How big?)
“Finally on three separate occasions and this is what I was leading up to, between 1969 and 1970 the Honorable Elijah Muhammad spoke in a certain progression concerning the value of Minister Farrakhan to himself. Others were present, at some time. But Allah was always present.
First he said, “Brother, you are more valuable to me than a truck load of diamonds and gold.” On another occasion he said, “Brother you are more valuable to me than a thousand airplanes with a thousand head of sheep on every plane.”
On a third occasion he said to his Minister, “Brother you are more valuable to me than all of the wealth that is in the earth because the wealth of the earth I met when I came here and I shall leave it when I’m gone, but through you, I will be able to get all of my people.”
All means just that–ALL.
I’m writing this article, right now, on this date. (9-1-10) Don’t say you already heard this, time and time again. If you understand that he is a man, who comes from a man, who was taught directly by a man, who is God, Himself, and you don’t take the time to think over this, and study him and this teachings, what are you saying about yourself?
How much time do you have and what is (was) your attitude, when you heard or read this teachings?
Have you ever had an attorney who did not know the meaning of words? What jail are you in? Have you ever had a doctor who had no knowledge of the human body? What burial are you in? If you are dead, how do you know?
I looked up three words for this article. In the New Oxford American Dictionary I looked up the word, “definition.” That gives it’s meaning as “a statesman of the exact meaning of a word, esp. in a dictionary; an exact statement, etc.”
Now, I bought and started reading this book, a few months before I was hospitalized. I made it very public when I woke up, in front of three brothers. That made it very clear that I was in my right mind, after I was “knocked” out for five days!
I thought of that book a few months ago.
It’s titled, The Envy of the World written by Ellis Close.
On page 99 we read: “As black men we have endured some of the worst America has to offer–lynching, enslavement, the indignities of Jim Crow–but never were we co-conspirators in our own subjugation–until now.
“Untold numbers of us stand to lose virtually everything the civil rights struggle won us–the right to vote, to earn a living, to raise our children free from fear–all because we cannot stay out of jail.
“ ‘One might have hoped that, by this hour, the very sight of chains on Black flesh, or the very sight of chains, would be so intolerable a sight for the American people, and so unbearable a memory, that they would themselves spontaneously rise up and strike off the manacles,’ thundered James Baldwin some thirty years ago, as he fumed over the imprisonment of Angela Davis.
“Yet here, in this new century, manacles are more fashionable than ever, and they are, in large measure, clamped around the wrists of black men. Nearly a million of us are in prisons or jails. And the Bureau of Justice Statistics (a part of the U.S. Department of Justice) projects that some fourteen million Americans–most of them Black and Latino males–will spend some part of their lives locked down. Something obviously has gone horribly awry.
“I’ve never been much for conspiracy theories. I don’t believe a group of politicians ever convened and said, ‘Let’s create a system in which twenty-eight percent of all black males–more than one in four of all black boys–eventually will end up in jail.’
“Yet that is the system they created. I don’t’ believe judges and cops plotted to produce a judicial merry-go-round that would arrest and convict us out of proportion to the crimes we commit and send a disproportionate number of our youth to adult penitentiaries, essentially condemning them to a life without a future.
“Yet that is what they have produced. Nor do I believe school administration colluded to capriciously label vast numbers of black boys as ‘emotionally and behaviorally disturbed,’ and then conspired to give most of them failing grades, knowing full well that the odds were roughly three to one that once those students dropped out they would end up arrested within five years.
“Yet again: That is precisely what educational administrators have done.”
I’m ending this article, with this thought. Can you think of one person, who teaches that “envy” is a way to produce unity between people or many persons?
More next issue, Allah willing.
