On July 4, 2020, in his Message to the world, “The Criterion,” Minister Farrakhan told us that there were at least 14 known therapies for Covid-19, among which were Ivermectin and convalescent antibodies. On July 22, 2021, the Black Leadership Coalition of Utica, NY (BLCU), with the help of Nation of Islam Student Minister Courtney Muhammad, presented a public health forum entitled, “Your Body: Your Choice.”
Panelists were Dr. Cynthia L. Jones, Dr. James Thompson and Dr. Velva Boles. Of course to have a “choice” you must know about alternatives and for over a year and a half the government and media have been pushing so-called vaccines (gene therapies), while ignoring or castigating other known therapies for Covid-19. At least this night Dr. Velva Boles was able to describe two very promising alternative or complementary therapies: Convalescent Antibody Infusion and Ivermectin.
Dr. Boles started out by informing the audience, “There should be complementary treatments available by way of the governments … a vaccine does have its place, but so do the alternative treatments which have been demonstrated to provide not only protection when you needed protection, but immediate protection. What I reference when I say that are convalescent antibodies as well as monoclonal antibodies against the viral component of Covid-19.
The infusion of an antibody is not new. It really doesn’t require any emergency justification. It has been known since 1901 that passive immunity is effective and in fact the physician that proved it got a Nobel Prize. There is also worldwide evidence that ivermectin, which is used in many of the poorer countries both in the continent of Africa, in Latin America, Brazil and so forth, as an anti-inflammatory.
“There are those who propose that it [ivermectin] has other mechanistic actions against Covid. I haven’t vetted that, but I can personally tell you I am familiar with the ability of ivermectin to reverse inflammatory conditions that you see in Dengue fever, as in Malaria, in River Fever and other invasive types of infections all over the world. There is an international group of physicians who have shown that 0.3 milligrams per kilogram weight is the effective dose for the anti-inflammatory processes observed that ivermectin so clearly demonstrated Ivermectin has been proposed as a prophylactic or a preventative.
The focus should be preventing death, preventing hospitalization and as much as possible preventing the infection itself. If this is the game plan or objective, then I would expect that all the powers that be who are funding the vaccination program should fund a complementary treatment program for those who cannot respond to a vaccine.”
Interestingly, Dr. James Thompson, who is a proponent of the so-called vaccines, had to agree with Dr. Boles on the most crucial points of her argument for alternatives to the vaccines. He stated, “I have to say that I probably agree with about 95 percent of what Dr. Boles said. There is nothing that I greatly or moderately disagree with. I think there should be more complementary medicines out there. They do exist.
I have been following ivermectin closely. There are about five different ways that ivermectin helps as: antiviral, something that can block the attachment of the corona virus to the cell. So I wish that this country, the NIH, the CDC would pay more attention to these medicines that are inexpensive and are readily available. I have to agree with much of what she said.”
After listening to this discussion, I became intrigued with finding out how we can get these alternative therapies like convalescent antibody infusions and ivermectin to the masses of our people. The next day I had a very enlightening conversation with Dr. Boles over the phone.
I asked her how can people get convalescent antibody infusions? She said, “They are not helpless. We are not helpless. If I have a loved one in the hospital, I can donate blood in their name. They do this all the time … If you have had Covid-19, we have this service. Go and donate your convalescent antibodies to someone who is unvaccinated. That’s altruism … If you talk about herd immunity, vaccinations are not the only way. If you get mass antibody infusions, you can still get herd immunity.”
Dr. Boles goes on to explain her idea of community clinics—something that the Black community had under segregation. They used to have health fairs, two to three times per year in a local park, where they check Black people’s blood pressure and test Black children’s eyes and teeth or any other abnormalities that were visible. “Such community based activities don’t cost much money.
If we set up what I call ‘Covid-19 Kits’ with the support of a school that has a pharmacy, they could include in that kit a finite amount of medication, prophylactic medications, and ivermectin has been identified as prophylactic. They could sign up people to come and donate convalescent antibodies. Any of the schools that have a pharmacy or public health can do this. Tuskegee just got a half million dollar grant for their public health department for Covid-19. They are in an ideal position to use some of that money for that.”
I reminded her that under segregation we had our Black doctors and hospitals but lost them after integration. So, I asked why don’t our professionals and doctors do more to help our people? She indicated that their hands are tied by the institutions that they work for and when they try to set up an independent practice there are games that the system plays to ensure that they don’t get access to the same funds that their White counterparts get. She said, “Our Black doctors back in the day were smart. Integration is a dilution to me.
Integration wasn’t a plus. It took our best and bastardized them. They put them in the White institutions where they got diluted. Their pitch got diluted. Their expertise got diluted. Their ability to be Black mentors to our children got diluted. We didn’t gain anything by integration in my opinion and if you look at the professional Black person, we lost. Your pediatrician had power and authority in his small bubble, but like Cornel West at Harvard, his hands are tied until he gets mad and leaves … I had a friend who was a J.D. and she said, ‘Velva, You know we integrated out of our race and we will never be integrated into theirs.’ We are in some kind of purgatory. We have so little power in the White establishment and now we have lost respect in the Black one.”
This Covid-19 pandemic and subsequent push for vaccinations in the Black community has exposed the abysmal lack of medical services available to the majority of the Black population. As we weave through the lies associated with the so-called vaccines and the agencies that are supposed to look out for the health and safety of American citizens, the Teachings of the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad and His Reminder, Minister Farrakhan, rings true.
We must provide food, clothing, shelter and health services to our own. We need our own hospitals. Maybe we can use this wake up call to get our health professionals organized to provide health services to our people through community clinics or virtual hospitals. Minister Farrakhan has warned us and now we can plainly see that our choice is “Separation or Death.”
