[Editor’s Note: On October 16, 2023, the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam (N.O.I.) sued the Anti-Defamation League, its CEO, Johnathan Greenblatt, and the Simon Wiesenthal Center and its Director of Global Social Action, Rabbi Abraham Cooper, in the Federal Court of the Southern District of New York for 1st Amendment violations and defamation.

“The mind is created to feed on truth. The Honorable Elijah Muhammad taught us that the brain cell is created to think rightly because the brain cell is created to feed on the truth of the universe. When you feed on truth, you think in harmony with the truth, you think right. When you feed on lies, you feed on that which is against the nature of the cell of the brain, and destroy the beauty of the brain cell.
It is like planing wood against the grain. The more you plane it against the grain, the uglier you make it. The more you think against truth, the uglier you become spiritually, mentally and even physically.
This is how important it is for us to be taught right. We live in a world in America where a people have not treated us right. If we have not been treated right, do you think that a man who will not treat you right would teach you right? We have never been taught right from the cradle, and that is why we are in our current condition.”—The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan, “The Purpose of Knowledge”, February 16, 1983
