Dr Boyce Watkins: It's Time To Start Telling The TRUTH About Farrakhan

Tuesday, March 15, 2016Brother Mustafaa



"One of the few leaders capable of connecting the struggles of our community with the trauma of the past is Minister Farrakhan.  Farrakhan is one of the few members of the black community who is respected by both his friends and enemies. He’s served well as a thinker, builder, orator, spiritual guide, mentor, father-figure and spokesperson for a community that has had to redefine its leadership over the last five years.

When rappers refuse to speak to one another, they respond to Farrakhan’s call for reconciliation.

When the people of Baltimore and Ferguson refused to talk to most old school civil rights leaders, they still paid close attention to the words of Farrakhan.

When Farrakhan has appeared on media outlets such as The Breakfast Club, the largest urban radio show in the nation, the world stood still to hear what he had to say.

When Farrakhan asked a million black men to come to Washington, they came in droves and did it again 10 and 20 years later.

The minister can go into the darkest and most dangerous parts of any city in America and be fully protected by men of all age groups and socioeconomic backgrounds.  No politician, advocate or police officer in the world can say the same thing.  The reason Farrakhan is respected, especially by black men, is that he gives us love in a society that is designed to hate, emasculate, criminalize and destroy us.  For many of us, he’s all we’ve got."
