  • Louis Farrakhan told Morgan State University that Islam’s 'law of retaliation' justifies the violent protests in Ferguson.
  • Louis Farrakhan told a conference at Morgan State University to “tear this g-damn country up,” after officer Darren Wilson was not indicted for the fatal shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown.

    “We going to die anyway,” said Farrakhan during his speech on Nov. 22, in a video obtained by The Final Call and reported by The Daily Caller. “Let’s die for something. Teach your baby how to throw the bottle if they can. Fight.”

    “As long as they [whites] kill us [blacks] and go to Wendy’s and have a burger and go to sleep, they’ll keep killing us,” Farrakhan continues. “But when we die and they die, then soon we’re going to sit at a table and talk about it! We’re tired! We want some of this earth or we’ll tear this goddamn country up!”

    MSU students were told to invite any speaker they like, no matter how controversial they might be. Prior to the event, educators voiced their concerns surrounding Farrakhan’s appearance and asked the Student Government Association to consider rescinding his invitation.

    Despite much concern, Farrakhan touted what administrators deem “anti-white philosophy” to MSU students.

    “Tonight in Ferguson everybody is on edge,” spoke Farrakhan. “White folks have never been on edge after they killed a Black man. Tonight they’re on edge; so on edge that our President has come out from behind the curtain to ask young Black people: ‘Cool it. That’s not our way.’”

    Farrakhan asserted Islam’s “law of retaliation” justifies the violent protests following the Ferguson verdict, as he held up what appeared to be Koran. He also criticized President Obama and Eric Holder for discouraging blacks to protest and promoting peace, attesting “God’s children [young blacks]” won't go down without a fight, according to the Washington Post.

    “I heard you, Mr. President; and I asked myself a question: What brings you out of the shadows?

    “And you preachers: Your day of being the pacifier for the white man’s tyranny upon black people, you got to know they’re [young blacks] not going to hear you anymore!” spoke Farrakhan.

    Farrakhan has a long history of demonizing the State of Israel and the Jewish people.
