During a speech at Nation of Islam’s annual convention in Detroit, MI Louis Farrakhan claimed the U.S. court system is unfair to African Americans and in order to receive a fair trial African Americans need to establish their own court system. Farrakhan claims the judicial system is discriminatory and unfair to African Americans and they are not able to receive a fair trial under the current system.
“We want equal justice under the law,” Farrakhan said on the last day of the Nation of Islam’s annual convention, held in Detroit this year. “Our people can’t take much more. We have to have our own courts.”
The minister for the Nation of Islam believes that in order for African Americans to receive a fair trial they need to setup their own court system based off the teachings from the Bible and Quran.
Farrakhan rallied the crowd during his speech asking, “Is the court system fair?” When crowd replied no, he asked them to gather their soldiers against the unfair judicial system.
Louis Farrakhan is a black religious and social leader for the Nation of Islam, he has been praised and widely criticized for his often vexed political views and outspoken rhetorical style. He has been criticized for remarks that have been perceived as, anti-white and prejudiced against gays.
The minister in most recent years gives weekly online sermons for the Nation of Islam calling for the movement of black men to re-commit themselves to their communities and families.
