Black Scholarship Unchained! - New volume released from Nation of Islam researchers

by Ashahed M. Muhammad

(FinalCall.com) - No man on the earth has been slandered and vilified in the media more than the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan.

For several decades, he has been the victim of a smear campaign by Jewish organizations that have labeled him a hater, a bigot, and an anti-Semite. For decades, lies and misinformation have been spread in an effort to implicate him in the murder of Malcolm X. At one point following the successful 1995 Million Man March, several prominent Christian pastors began to call him the anti-Christ.

The Minister has suffered these vicious and unrelenting assaults on his character— promulgated primarily through inaccurate media narratives consisting of outright lies, half-truths, and deliberate deceptions—never using his considerable influence to retaliate against his foes.

As a testament to their awesome control of public knowledge, the enemies of truth focus only on that which they would like for you to know. Whether in the area of politics, history, economics, or science, many books—especially those designed for academic use—are presumed to have been thoroughly evaluated by impartial scholars and fact checkers. But such is not the case. As we have now learned, misrepresentation is the rule, not the exception. Thus the need for Defending Farrakhan, Book 2. Defending Farrakhan has become its own phenomenon.

Fan pages are turning up on the Internet, in social media as well as blogs chronicling the contentious battle between Minister Farrakhan and influential but extremely intolerant groups within the racist Jewish community, such as the Anti-Defamation League of B’nai B’rith, the American Jewish Committee, and the Simon Wiesenthal Center. Although the title is bold and very clear, this book is not simply a defense of Minister Farrakhan. It is also a defense of the body of knowledge he represents as the chief exponent of the Teachings of the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad, the patriarch and Eternal Leader of the Nation of Islam.
