Caroline MacGregor March 4, 2013 | WGVU
The 79 year old Louis
Farrakhan was invited to Grand Rapids by GRCC to inspire people to
stop violence that has plagued parts of the city.
Farrakhan addressed three
of the topics on the agenda vision, education, and self-Esteem but made no mention of the role of fathers in raising or
disciplining their children. He told women in the audience to dress more
appropriately and that staying home to raise children is of far more value than
having a job or career.
Farrakhan had no advice, however, to offer mothers in inner city
areas raising children alone without financial support or the support of the child’s father.
had this to say about the American educational establishment.
Obama, who Farrakhan accuses white people of disrespecting..
talked about an expected decrease in the white population in the US by 2050 and
accused white people of promoting birth control for black women because they
fear becoming a minority.
spoke out against mixed race relationships.
also cracked a joke about white couples who adopt black babies.
Nation of Islam's annual Saviors’ Day convention in Chicago, Farrakhan said he’d reach out to black military leaders to to address gun violence. He
also said he’d contact the city's gang leaders to recruit gang members, calling them "natural soldiers" who could be taught "the science
of war" to become protectors of the Nation of Islam's assets in the
Mayor Rahm Emanuel's response to Farrakhan’s idea was that he doesn't
think gang members are part of the city’s public safety plan.
