According to a report on Eurweb.com,
*Minister Louis Farrakhan has seen enough of the U.S. legal system in light of the
acquittals of George Zimmerman and Michael Dunn.
So much so that he’s calling for black Americans to create and establish their
own court system based on the Bible and Quran. In Farrakhan’s eyes, the current
legal system is one that practices racial bias.
What are your thoughts? Wouldn't this be prejudice?
This leaves room for bias. However many view the United States Judiscial System
as being created strictly for "white america" to begin with.
According to Farrakhan,
“We want equal justice under the law,” the Nation of Islam leader said Sunday as
he addressed a crowd of 18,000 people at the Joe Louis Arena during the group’s
annual convention. “Our people can’t take much more. We have to have our own courts.”
Farrakhan’s comments come a week after Dunn was acquitted in the fatal shooting
of Jordan Davis. The jury in Florida man’s trial ultimately convicted him of attempted
murder for shooting at a car full of black teens over a dispute involving loud music.
Like Dunn, Zimmerman was acquitted in his case. The former neighborhood watchmen
generated headlines when he was acquitted last year for shooting Trayvon Martin.
The outcome of the tragedies is one of many that caused Farrakhan to ask the
convention crowd, “Has America been just to us?”
Rawstory.com reports the audience agreed with the outspoken leader ‘s opinion
that the nation had not. “If we retaliate, you can bring out your soldiers. We got
some, too,” Farrakhan said.
In addition to blasting the legal system, Farrakhan took aim at American Muslims
serving in the U.S. armed forces in the Middle East, saying they were “slaughtering
[their] own people for America” and “the European infidel.”
Long-standing claims of Farrakhan being ant-Semitic were also touched on during
the NOI leader’s speech as he denied the accusations.
“Did Jesus have a problem with the Jews of his day? He’s not a hater. Neither
am I,” Farrakhan stated as he claimed that “Satan is in control of Hollywood,”
TV, media and money, fields that frequently feature Jewish people in positions
of power. “I don’t hate Jewish people … what I hate is evil.”
