For the last few months I've noticed alot more talk of Farrakhan, even before this interview. I guess its just a sign of the times. Some say this was the most important radio interview in the past half century. I know that's hyperbole, but he does engage the audience throughout. Well worth a listen if you still have questions on Farrakhan and the black Muslim movement in America. In the wake of black murder, I think we are used to seeing forgiveness and blind rage from rioters and forget that black people can express anger and resolved focus with the grace of gods.
I don't know anything about the Malcolm X beef but I know what I've read here and there paints Farrakhan as responsible to a degree. I studied Malcolm X for a semester in my undergrad years and came to understand the idolatry of his life was not unanimous, even within his family. There are probably fewer admirers for Farrakhan. I know posting this video draws a line for them. Still, when I consider the great speakers of truth in my life, Chomsky, Zinn, West, and it's hard to disprove his words align with my reality, just as theirs do. In Chicago, the neighborhood surrounding the mosque is historically a diamond in the ruff and its as a result of the principals and pillars given by this man's organization. That fact is why I listened.
So far this year, the Breakfast club has put up a great interview with Dame Dash and Kanye. It's hard to tell if they are in a zone or not, since these are far between, but still, they are classic. If you can put up with soft as Envy and fake ass Charlamagne, then hit play.
