Nation of Islam and Farrakhan In The Streets Spreading Peace

Minister Louis Farrakhan will host his very first #AskFarrakhan Social Media Town Hall on Wed., September 26, 2012. Below is an essay on the Minister’s work in the community and this ground breaking, first-ever event.

It’s easy to sit on the sidelines and just talk about the violence that’s plaguing the
Black community in cities such as Chicago, New York and New Orleans.

It’s easy to leave a comment online, post a tweet and update your Facebook status
regarding what’s happening in the streets. As a matter of fact, as I write this article
someone is probably being shot in your neighborhood. We have enough people
reciting the statistics, but who is bringing solutions?

The problem alone cannot be solved from a laptop. It also takes those willing to
leave the comfort of their homes to hit the streets and engage those who are killing
one another.

The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan, a consistent servant of the people for 57
years, has been personally walking different parts of the Windy City in a sincere
effort to promote peace in Chicago. He’s been shaking hands and giving words of
guidance to young Black men whom this world may consider hopeless.

Min. Farrakhan’s been doing this for 12 consecutive weeks since mid-July and
doesn’t plan to stop anytime soon. The Fruit of Islam, men of the Nation of Islam,
have been following his lead in hitting the streets every week in more than 100
U.S. cities, as well as in Canada, Trinidad, London and South Africa.

“Our work is no longer in the mosques, the churches, the synagogues or our office
buildings. We must all dedicate and devote time to the problem in the streets,” said
Min. Farrakhan in a letter posted online.

Over the next few days, Minister Farrakhan plans to hit the streets of NewYork.
On Sunday, Sept. 23, he spoke to large crowds in Mt. Vernon, The Bronx, and
New Rochelle.

From the streets to the tweets….just #AskFarrakhan

Min. Farrakhan has always believed in reaching the masses where they are
and he recognizes that we are in the midst of a “social media craze.” Thus, his
@LouisFarrakhan account and the Twitter hashtag #AskFarrakhan have become very
popular over the past year.

Min. Farrakhan frequently responds to questions from his 85,000 plus Twitter
followers. He doesn’t shy away from any topic because he wants to use this tool to
raise the consciousness of the people versus engaging in foolery.

Min. Farrakhan will host his first ever #AskFarrakhan Social Media Town Hall
webcast live on Wed., September 26, 2012 from The Final Call Administration
Building in Chicago, Illinois.

During the live online event to be moderated by journalist Ashahed Muhammad,
Min. Farrakhan will answer questions for two hours from Twitter, Facebook and
YouTube users.

People want to know his thoughts on Pres. Barack Obama’s first term, the Middle
East uproar over the anti-Islamic film, the U.S. economy, the state of Hip-Hop
culture, Iran and more.

Min. Farrakhan, affectionately known as “The Minister,” is excited! This is
expected to be a 2.0 experience filled with timely guidance and innovative
solutions to create real change.

The event is being sponsored by NOI.org and FinalCall.com. Also, AllHipHop.com, the
greatest Hip-Hop site in the world, will be streaming it live on their website.

If you could ask Min. Farrakhan just ONE question what would it be? Post it here
in the comment section and tune into the town hall.

      • Timothy Muhammad

        Suava is right. It was a depiction of Minister Farrakhan. That’s why he was called “The Minister”. Also notice Nas was reading Minister Farrakhan’s book self improvement in the beginning.

    Jesse. Farrakhan has wasted enough of our time. His game is old. He’s simply a motivational speaker seeking every opportunity to present himself as a leader. He’s a cultural clown and a buffoon if you will. He goes on “tour” whenever he needs to raise money by selling DVD’s, literature, etc., and of course begging. He’s pathetic and brothers like you are either too naive to see it or culpable in the scam being run on the most ignorant and emotional among us. Shame on you and Shame on the NOI. It’s a two bit cult led by what appears to be a narcissistic, megalomaniac who is woefully detached from reality. At least he has an excuse, he’s nuts. What’s yours?

    • PorchBoySlim

      funny thing about what u said is that white people say the bullshit about MLK, Malcom X, and the Black Panther Party…smh coon

      • Montezuma1

        In all honesty Malcolm’s greatest accomplishments were in the context of the NOI not Black America. He was the greatest minister the NOI had but outside of the NOI Malcolm did nothing as well. That’s not a knock on him just facts. You uneducated emotional zealots see a few highlights and hear some soundbites then get to doing what you do best… Dick Riding. lol Read a book jack azz before calling me names.

    • Shalove2

      What have you done? The Minister saved my life, how many lives have you saved? Stop talking shit and do something.

      • Montezuma1

        He saved your life? You love giving your credit away I see. Tell him to stop talking shit and do something. All he’s ever done is talk and sell DVD’s of course.

  • Montezuma and Erik are clowns, its so easy to diss a brotha trying to do something, wtf are you doing. Its easy to post negative comments bc you’re negative ppl and a waste of life.

    • Montezuma1

      You’re the clown sir. Farrakhan does nothing but talk Make empty threats and pretend the government is out to get him when the reality is he’s an agent provocateur and has been from day 1.. He’s not trying to do anything but confus people like you and keep you from finding truth.. As a matter of fact all the NOI has ever done is pimp and exploit ignorant emotional blacks like you. Remember when he claimed to find a cure for AIDS in Africa called Kemron? lol. He even set up a clinic where people were being treated. He tried to pimp out his followers to the Rev Sun Myung Moon and Scientology. Research it. The NOI is a cult that attracts uneducated, ignorant fools like yourself. He’s always looking for a buck because bean pies, newspapers and fried fish are outdated and in close to 100yrs they haven’t figured out how to manufacture much else. Some “nation.”. You morons amaze me. Any fool wrapping themselves in pro-black rhetoric is pro-black? Negro please. From the belief in the mothership to preaching Elijah is still alive to a litany of rubbish promoted by this cultural clown you deserve to be fooled. “Why do they love the Devil? Because he gives them NOTHING.”
