Farrakhan: Ferguson Is A Sign “Something Terrible Is About To Go Down”

by / November 7, 2014 video 19 Comments

Many people have spoken out about the killing of Black unarmed teenager Michael Brown by white police officer Darren Wilson in Ferguson, Missouri, but not many have tied to the larger context of the treatment of Black youth in the United States.  Minister Louis Farrakhan is one who does.  In the days immediately after Brown’s death, people poured into the streets of Ferguson demanding justice for Brown and an end to police killing and brutality.  As these issues have become part of a national conversation, data has been analyzed that reveals that a person of color is killed by police every 28 hours.

While some may be motivated to view police killing and brutality in the larger context of how it impacts all Americans, there is a deeper issue of why Black men and youth are more often targeted by police violence that deserves consideration.  It is true that all Americans face the potential of police violence and murder, Black men are 21 more times likely to be killed by police than white men, indicating a much greater risk for Black men.

In this video, Louis Farrakhan addresses Michael Brown’s killing and what he feels is a conspiracy against Black youth.  Farrakhan is the leader of the Nation of Islam and is considered to be a Black religious and social leader.  He is often both praised and criticized for his outspoken nature about controversial political topics.  In this address given just over week after Brown’s death, Farrakhan states, “I warn you that something terrible is about to go down, and Ferguson is a sign: A microcosm of the macrocosm.  The killing of Michael Brown is one in many – some we know about and some we don’t know about; but every city and town where Black people live, Black men are being shot down by police.”

  1. duhhhh and what's new. The 'something terrible is coming down" is his prayer for a last bid at relevancy!

    • Carolyn, your response is childish and stupid. Leave now and come back when you decide to grow up and stop hanging on to the jock of the very enemy that wants to destroy us.

      You know nothing of our history let alone yours. You are entitled to your opinion, but when you say something stupid and ignorant as this because you are bored. Leave the conversations to the intelligent critical thinking grown ups.

  2. he told nothing but the truth Carolyn! As far as revelancy he is very relevant to his followers and even if you don't believe in his religion you must admit that his people are the most clean cut and hardworking people we have seen since before intergration! They have an agenda and they work toward that goal!! So should we all!!

  3. Some people just have to say something. No matter how dumb. You probably clicked on this article because your hateful behind was looking for something negative to say. The Minister is extremely relevant

  4. Well has it dawned on anyone besides me that when you, " call those things that be not as though they are ", how foolish are you to be surprised when (something terrible is about to go down)? Racism is a spirit that enters the flesh via the mind and heart it can only be eradicated permanently when the said racist submits his/her self to the word of God! It can't be moved by marching ,singing , demonstrating, and yes even violence. Spirit knows spirit, flesh knows flesh, Black folks are wasting far too much time engaging your flesh in a spiritual warfare battle when spiritual warfare is required. So yes he spoke it you may as well claim it, that's your reality not mine or Gods.

  5. I agree with Carolyn Baker.

  6. I don’t support his religious beliefs but I think any conscious and free thinking individual can see he is usually on target with social issues. It is time out for allowing money, status, and religion divide us. We have to join together to save our people and bring awareness to social issues.

  7. This is genocide, he also said this is a plot of the U S Government. These police is taking orders. The police is the occupying army for the wealthy.

  8. I am a praying woman but most of all a praying mother. I have a son I pray over everyday that he doesn't become a victim to the police brutality in our streets. This is not a block issue, this is not a city issue, or a not even a nation issue its a worldwide issue. Our people have become their primary target because they fear us. They fear who we are. They fear one day our people will wake up and discover who we really are. The time they have stolen from us and the methods of control they have put on us. I feel that if you have a close relationship with the Creator you have to feel in your spirit the things that are about to come. Our people are tired oppressed and ready to fight back. Furgerson is just a start of what's to come. Turn the other cheek if you want but be prepared to be punched in the other one.

  10. If you look @ the gospels Jesus confronted every demon then cast them out. So we can do Spiritual Warfare while we’re marching and or demonstrating.

    • Hmm hmmm. yeah, right. Keep dreaming.

  11. Carolyn B. Baker,

    While it is most certainly true that you, me, and other people have every right to our own opinions about anything and anyone, such freedom of thoughts, opinions, and speech certainly doesn't mean that everyone' opinions are based on any truth or accurate knowledge, clear and indisputable facts, proven evidence to support them, nor rationality and high intelligence whatsoever.

    It is with all these facts in mind that I respond challenging you to write well explaining, if you are able to do so, providing factual information and evidence in great detail, which would clearly, entirely, overwhelmingly, and also indisputably support without fail the basis of your written opinion stated pertaining to Minister Louis Farrakhan' "..last bid at relevancy". Minister Louis Farrakhan is not perfect, as is no man or woman. Yet, he is a God-fearing strong black man who has long more than always proven he is fearless of white people and so-called white power.

    Farrakhan has for 50+years fearlessly spoken and written, shown, and lived empowerment truth about and for black people ranging from adults to little children. Unlike thousands of other black men and black women posturing as pastors, journalists, media pundits, entertainers, educators, politicians, lawyers, doctors, scientists, business owners and so on in America and worldwide, Farrakhan is not only far from being irrelevant, but is also not bought or compromised by the rich and powerful among the white race or by their well-programmed, mind-sick, financially-tethered, willing and also dangerous black helpers high to low like Obama Black America & Africa Bomber and others who have historically in the USA, Caribbean, Africa and worldwide comprised a long line of willing, under-cover, lying black minion participants in backroom dirty dealing with rich white men and white women to the detriment of their own black race of people and also themselves from beginning to end.

    These kind of black people well love, much respect, and totally believe in most, if not all, that is valued, decided, written, taught, produced, and marketed by white Euro-Americans and white Europeans. They consider themselves anointed, special, lucky and well blessed to receive white race recognition, approval, friendliness, friendship or acquaintance of any kind. And, believe it or not, such black people are not really the highly intelligent thinkers, true knowledge seekers, or accurate information distributors more black people than not actually believe them to be, but they are those who though sailing way below deck chained to the white race boat refuse to rock the boat by sacrificing together to stand up, break the chains, and leave it. They are the worst, incredibly brainwashed, sick, selfish, foolish, lost, dangerous and also babbling bullshitters of both the so-called "black elite" Boule' clubs and the also wildly well-deceived, extraordinarily ordinary people among the black race always ever-ready to harm and injure other black people in deference to or as a favor to sick white, black, other races of people and evil entities

    Who is it that would well likely embrace, support, and applaud the ignorance of black people such as yourself and all others? Millions of racist white people together with their well deceived, ignorant, mind-sick, bought, collared, leashed and dangerous black patsies worldwide and, also most especially, the many highly deceptive white Jewish impostors in Israel, America, Europe, and worldwide among their fellow Anglo Saxon race who are gentiles.

    The Only One Great True Almighty God in His Word expressed by having said, "My people perish for lack of knowledge." Our Creator meant His Holy All-Knowing Knowledge He Gave to us via His prophets from among our chosen ancient ancestors and us that both they and us refuse to humbly receive, accept, believe, honor and live by that Anglo Saxons and white Jews and white Gentiles alike stole, long historically covered up, lied about, distorted in writing, tried to hide and to also eliminate by falsely claiming such as written by their people. Our ancient ancestors and we have long been punished by Almighty God and so many millions of us remain dangerously ignorant and unaware of the reasons being literally the same as in ancient times.

    At the same time, while black people in America and worldwide have also so long been so parched and thirsty for knowledge about their true history, many have sought it, are still seeking, and are blind but not to be blamed, but instead commended for great desire to know and for making the effort to learn versus continuing to detrimentally accept and be deceived by what they've been told by Caucasians. So here is the true and ultimate answer for all black people today most of whom have never ever been taught, known, or realized it for any number of reasons.

    Almighty God' Words and Truth in bible scriptures is about us. The ancient biblical history is the history of the black race whose ancestors were the original ancient Hebrew Israelites, which the white "Jews" have for too many centuries long have entirely lied about and also falsely claimed. More than 95 percent of them absolutely are not at all descendants of the ancient Hebrew Israelites period. They are liars and imposters with no ancient biblical claim whatsoever to Israel in Africa' Middle East nor Africa period at all.

    You, me, Minister Farrakhan, and billions of other black and other people of color in the USA, Caribbean, Africa / elsewhere worldwide are indeed descendants of the ancient Hebrew Israelites. Seek and ye shall find. Knock and the door shall be opened to you. Take off your blindfold. The truth, as is written in biblical scriptures, will set you and millions of other black people free hopefully for your sake to immediately return to obeying and honoring the Covenant Laws Almighty God established for His People to live well united together and to prosper under Almighty God' Powerful Protection resisting sins as Almighty God specified, separated from, and also shunning all evil works and evil people not chosen or acceptable to Him or His Sacrificed Risen Son as truly their own.

  12. Abena Abdullah U r right, we have so many Black People asleep to the real beat that they see their own get shot down , by the present gang in their community & will do nothing but go to the Churches & weep & moan & want sympathy for the loss of their so-called loved one, truth is if U so much love your OWN family members then why are U allowing the local gang to just run rampant in & around your area, truth is this U r somehow profiting from their bullshit & U would rather continue the same thing until someone gets shot down by police then U want to get all up in screams about the so-called loved one who was killed, U have to first change the culture of thought that is branded in your communities then U have to address the local gangs too, & can't U SCREAM [LORD] DO SOMETHING WHEN U R THE MAIN PERPETRATOR

  13. Racism will be eradicated when people surrender to pure LOVE. Practically every religion in the universe subscribes to peace, love and compassion. So no matter what or who you believe or what name you use, peace, love and compassion is the answer.

  14. He’s right, what’s happening in the White House is the cause of death of our black males. The mere symbolic overtone of the First Family being AA has brought out racists. The desired attempt to make AA’s lower their heads when a white person speaks directly to them is crazy; yet some whites want to go backwards to those awful times of ” white dominance”… Voting in elections isn’t enough. AA’s had better organized get prepared for weak minded white men and women who have nothing to lose.
    Case and Point; have any of the Blogger’ experienced an issue posting their thoughts at blacklikemoi and Your black world? “Solve Media”, whomever they are have, attempted to discourage our debate forum, and it’s because they have no respect for AA’S!
