At the Metropolitan AME Church in Washington, DC on Wednesday, Louis Farrakhan, the leader of the Nation of Islam stated in his speech that the American flag must come down!
Farrakhan plans to hold a ‘Millions for Justice’ march (riot) in the nation’s capital this fall, 20 years after the Million Man March.
“We need to put the American flag down. Because we’ve caught as much hell under that as the Confederate flag.”
“What the hell is the use of us paying allegiance to a flag under which we get no justice?”
“White folks march with you because they don’t want you upsetting the city, they don’t give a damn about them nine.”
“I don’t know what the hell the fight is about over the Confederate flag. We need to put the American flag down. Because we’ve caught as much hell under that as the Confederate flag.”
“Who are we fighting today? It’s the people that carry the American flag.”
WASHINGTON (AP) reported by US News — Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan said Wednesday he plans to hold a Millions for Justice march in the nation’s capital this fall, 20 years after the Million Man March.
During a speech at Metropolitan African Methodist Episcopal Church in downtown Washington, Farrakhan said he intends to hold the rally Oct. 10 on the National Mall, scene of the 1995 march.
“This is the time our people must see our unity,” Farrakhan said. “Let’s make 10/10/15 a meeting place for those who want justice, for those who know what justice is.”
Organizers said they aim to stage a more diverse and inclusive event than the one in 1995, which was billed as a men-only event.
