Louis Farrakhan Preached ‘Jesus Was A Black Man’ At Alabama University
We are pretty used to Minister Louis Farrakhan preaching on the ‘black issue’ and the ‘black struggle’. We are sure everyone that knows his name, know what he is about. So why are some so upset about his so called anti-semantic comments- namely Glenn Beck?
Now, we don’t support Farrakhan on many things but one has to know that what he states is always controversial and in some ways, can be true. There are some who can’t stand what he teaches but let’s take this as an opportunity for discussion.
Many wanted the controversial speaker to cancel his speaking engagement but the show went on and now we can see just what was said. Here’s some of what was said at Alabama A&E University on Tuesday:
- On the topic of religion and race Farrakhan got personal, ”If He made us black – with kinky hair, broad nose, thick lips – if I don’t like me, how could I like the God who created me?”
Now, this we agree with. African Americans must like who they are and if we don’t, there may be some dislike in who created us. It really goes deep into why many have said blacks hate one another.
- Farrakhan referenced the Jewish Seder holiday and specifically the Jewish tradition of the Prophet Elijah’s arrival to each doorway on Passover night: “If Elijah was at the door and he was black, you would call 911 and say there’s a n****r at the door, claiming he’s Elijah! Send the police!”
- Why would Jewish people be so shocked? “Because you are not trained to accept wisdom from a black person, no matter how wise that black person is” the minister explained, “Jesus was a black man.”
We only agree that others may not want to deal with the fact that Jesus was black or of very dark pigmentation. The bible described Him that way so, that’s not our words ( Daniel 10:6 ). We also know that it does not matter if He was or was not because He loves us all and there is only one Lord we shall serve.
There was much more that was stated and true enough, it is very controversial. So develop you own opinion on this one.
