Blacks and Jews Split – again – over Farrakhan

I like this article. It really should go down in the Guinness book of world record as the article with the most balls.

This is just bizarre and too silly for words and if it wasn’t in print, I wouldn’t have believed it. Who do these people think they are? And why do they think that they have so much power over us that they can insist that our leaders do anything, let alone stay away from Farrakhan. They must think we are as silly as they sound. I can assure you, this will never happen. We are Black before we are Christian, Muslim, Buddhist, Pagan, etc. etc.

WASHINGTON (NNPA) – A prominent Jewish leader’s insistence that African-American leaders distance themselves from the Millions More March organizer Minister Louis Farrakhan is more likely to stir up more anti-Semitism rather than soothe frayed relations between Blacks and Jews, says Hip Hop mogul Russell Simmons.He was reacting to criticism from Abraham H. Foxman, national director of Anti-Defamation League (ADL). In a letter addressed to national Black leaders, Foxman said it is unacceptable that mainstream African-American leaders would participate in a march whose conveners include Farrakhan and Malike Zulu Shabazz, head of the New Black Panther Party.
