Louis Farrakhan calls for black Americans to have their own state: ‘God has something else for us!’


This seems counterproductive

Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan once called for black Americans to have their own separate state. In a Thursday Instagram video titled, "Blacks Must SEPARATE from America!" Farrakhan explained "that's what God wants."

The video features footage of a resurfaced 2015 interview on "The Rock Newman Show," during which Farrakhan said that God wants black Americans to have their own state and that blacks who disagree are simply "slaves."

In the beginning of the video, Newman asked, "[Is it] your goal of the Nation of Islam to still establish a separate nation or state?"

Farrakhan responded, "That's not just my goal. That's what God wants! Most of our people don't want it yet. You love your enemy. You want to stay with your enemy. You're in love with his wealth!"

"Oh, I understand the fascination, slaves!" he added. "I understand that. But God has something else for us!"

Farrakhan said that this has always been the Nation of Islam's goal.

“Let me tell you what's gonna happen," he explained. "Yes, I'm after a separate state. A separate nation. In the '60s, what was our cry, Rock? We weren't saying we want to integrate, we were saying 'It's nation time!' Black Power to do what? To integrate a lunch counter? Black Power to build a nation for 40 million — now near 50 million — black people."
