Because we don’t have enough controversy these days. Because what the country needs is more racial animus.
Speaking to 18,000 people at the Joe Lewis Arena in Detroit yesterday, Mr. Farrakhan used the platform to blast the U.S. judicial system as being biased against African Americans, calling upon the community to set up its own courts:
“We want equal justice under the law,” Farrakhan said on the last day of the Nation of Islam’s annual convention, held in Detroit this year. “Our people can’t take much more. We have to have our own courts.”
So as I understand, Mr. Farrakhan wants a separate but equal judicial system that is “just as powerful, just as strong, just as well funded” as the one we have today.
For the second time in just 6 months, I find myself asking, “What next? Their own water fountains?”
“How do I bring people together? How? Maybe a luau of some kind. What is it Campbell?”
“I just met with the African American Student Council, sir…”
“Great, a new separatist demand, right?”
“I don’t get it, Campbell. The Black students now have separate dorms, fraternities, cafeteria tables, student center, studies program and graduation. After 25 years of intensive, progressive action in pursuit of racial justice at this college, we’ve managed to produce a fully segregated campus. *sigh* What a legacy I’ve created. And to think I marched with Dr. King in Selma.”
“So what is it now?”
“Um…the kids want their own water fountains.”
How’s all that “Hope and Change” working out for you?
