  • If you think that's 'racist' what about the Turkish flag? Seems a bit odd to me.

    asking if a flag representing the nation of Islam is racist is like asking if a flag representing nazi's is racist.

    both are hate groups

    yeah I feel ya, and I guess I'm just stating the obvious. But yeah the nation doesn't see all humans as equal and dehumanizes groups based on ethnicity and race.

    I've had debates about them but never one where anyone has been able to clearly prove me wrong on their views of inequality.

    IMO the only reason they even get any respect from anyone is they are a hate group made up of a minority.

    From the anti Defamation League:

    Farrakhan appeared at Lincoln University in March claiming that "white people are potential human beings...they haven't fully developed yet."

    wow that was really imaginative of you.

    please tell me how the NOI (or the FOI) do not teach hatred & racist views

    Sitting here in Portland I don't see many true followers of NOI. But Farrakahn appears to get lots of respect from people who appreciate his uplifting message of selfreliance. They are ala carte Farrakahn fans, who ignore the BS and appreciate that he talks about the world from a Black nationhood perspective.

    The Nation of Islam, 5%ers, New Black Panthers, whatever. Are these groups racists? Yes. Honestly, I don't care because they have no real power. All they do is talk and hope to get in the media. When all is said and done, they can't do shit. So what?

    Then you have these white people waving the Confederate flag (openly or in their private mind garden) who control the reins of power in this country--and by proxy, the world.

    I just think it's so damn silly that these extremists screaming from the sidelines bleachers parking lot get so much attention.

    Focus your attention on the extremists who are in power.

    Since throughout the course of modern history white people have made such shambles out of drawing conclusions about people based on their racial background, now no one in the world is allowed to draw any conclusions whatsoever about people based on their racial background......so say white people.

  • flags are racist.

    Good point.

    As FB points out the main difference being is that neither Farrakahn or his followers are being elected to anything. They have no real power. So to compare the NOI flag that is flown at NOI meetings to the CSA flag which is flown above state capitols, courthouses and NASCAR races is foolish.
