Weekend: State of the Black Union

Louis Farrakhan
2.26.5 - Lithonia, GA

A few quotes from Farrakhan's remarkable rant this past weekend:
  • "Power concedes nothing without a demand," (quoting Frederick Douglass) "but power won't even concede to a demand if it comes from a weak constituency.''
  • "...regardless of where we have been, we want to advance our people."
  • "...black children can't eat at the table of illusion and hypocrisy."
  • "...we can't focus on the house that denied us access for 400 years."
  • "...the hell with Democrats and Republicans."
