[Editor’s note: The following article contains only excerpts of the powerful, thought-provoking keynote address delivered by the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan during the 2nd Annual Black United Summit International (B.U.S.I.) Conference held on the campus of Morgan State University on November 22, 2014.The title of this message is,“The 2nd Annual B.U.S.I. Conference: ‘Re-Claim, Re-Pair, Re-Form, Re-Produce—REPARATIONS Now!’”]

Now those of you who are “doctors”:  I know you have your Ph.D. degree—along with a little cancer, and a little problem with diabetes and high blood pressure, right “doc”?  Mmm-hmm.  Doctors hardly live as long as their patients because doctors are obese, dying of a heart attack, eating McDonald’s. 

You mean, “doc,” you don’t know how to eat better than that?  Everybody eats: The pimp eats, the prostitute eats; everything eats!  And we don’t have any land, nor are we producing any food, to give health and well-being to ourselves. 

They’re killing us all over the earth by killing our ability, or will, to farm.  And then they come and give us the food that they produce, which is poison dressed up to look good.


America is for sale!  The F.B.I. headquarters was up for sale ($50 million):  We could buy it, and lease it back to them!  There are people coming into this country buying roads, and toll roads, and other infrastructure … America is in bad shape!  And with the $1 trillion, they say, comes through our hands this year:  We don’t know how to “pool” any resources so we could buy up thousands of acres of land, and set up agribusiness.

He who produces your food is he who maintains your life

To all my preacher friends:  What was the first profession mentioned in the Bible?  See, God is something, man!  He is showing you how to make your “Genesis”—and you won’t listen!  According to the Book of Genesis He did all this wonder in “six days,” and then He said, “But there was no man to till the ground.”  Now, the earth is here, but there has to be a man who knows how to not get “economics”—because economics will come when you work the land! 

This enemy is a trickster, boy.  He gets you into studying all kinds of “research”…  You’re in “Agriculture Research.”  And what is that?  “We’re learning what bugs will kill ‘this and that’,” but you better learn what “bug” is killing you!  And you better understand that you have an enemy that is wiping us out little by little; because they are vaccinating you, and you don’t know what is in the vaccine!  Can you imagine? 

The same man that gave your Native American brother smallpox by giving them a blanket for the winter:  You’re letting that same enemy vaccinate your children!

“Agriculture” is the first profession.  It is the greatest of all professions, because he who produces your food is he who maintains your life.  Since your life springs from the earth, then the more you know about the earth—its chemistry, and the chemistry of your body, and the needs of your body from the chemistry of the earth—then you will grow food that will give you life and energy!

The White man has crafted agriculture, where they’re taking minerals and vitamins out of the food, and then putting it in a pill and sending you to the health food store, when grandma never knew anything about a “health food store.”  The “health food” is what you grow from the earth.  How many of you have erectile dysfunction? 

Great grandpa never had a problem; he didn’t have “Viagra,” “Cialis”!  See, the enemy is working on us.  There was a time when there was an emission of sperm that there would be two billion sperms at one time!  Now sperm is getting less and less because there’s so much estrogen in the water, in the food. 

Have you seen this commercial on TV that says:  “If you have taken ‘this’—and you are developing breasts—call this number”?  Do you know, brothers and sisters, that the wicked scientists of this enemy, who are masters of chemical, biological science:  They feed you things that give you hormones that are making you female.  You think you are “naturally” a homosexual.

Let me say this:  I love my homosexual brothers and sisters.  I’m not against you; I love you very, very much.  But somebody is interfering with nature, with chemistry and science!  Once you get a person hormonally going in a certain direction, you can suggest to the mind, and the mind will accept it because the chemistry of the body has been gradually altered.  So if you notice, it’s like an epidemic.

The elders, the young and the enemy:  What is God’s plan for you?

My dear beloved brothers and sisters, according to scripture:  The elders are going to die in the wilderness.  God will not want you in The Promise Land because there’s too much “Pharaoh” in you, and you refuse to let Pharaoh go.  To the professors in the college:  You have your degree from the Caucasian; and it’s not that it’s not a “good degree,” but it’s only good if you can do good with it. 

Because the Caucasian isn’t giving you a degree so you can break his grip on you, he wants to keep you as a subservient, ignorant to the full knowledge that you seek so that you will always be to him used as a “tool” and a slave.  So dear professors, don’t be apologists for White people.

And to the young men and women:  It is you, in the Bible, that inhabited The Promise Land, because the elders were afraid of Pharaoh, and they were afraid because there were some “giants” already in the land that God was going to give them!  Now God tells you in the scripture that He takes The Kingdom from whom He pleases, and He gives it to whom He pleases.  So if God wants to give you The Kingdom, what are you griping about?  The Earth is His! 

You, (the enemy) don’t have any ownership of God’s Earth!  You are just renting; leasing—and your lease is up; so God has come to take you off the planet if you don’t submit.  I like that.  So the young, in the days of Moses and Aaron and Joshua:  See, they were not afraid to take on “the giants.” …
