Why Minister Farrakhan is Still RelevantWhile some people may suggest that Minister Farrakhan has lost his relevancy, I say that he is as relevant today as he has ever been.
In the days leading up to the Millions More Movement I've been listening to Minister Farrakhan speak about the state of the world today. I've seen him on C-SPAN, listened to him on NPR, and even watched an excerpt on FoxNews.
Minister Farrakhan is speaking the feelings of so many Black people across this nation, but not in a monolithic sense.
He speaks of self-responsibility and shedding reliance on government out of love, not out of contempt.
He speaks of the travesty of the conditions of the poorho live in the wealthiest nation on the planet.
He speaks of a foreign policy that is based on common sense and universal justice, not ideology and politricks.
While so many so-called leaders and playing the Liberal vs. Conservative game, Minister Farrakhan is speaking truth to power.
That is why Minister Farrakhan is still relevant in 2005.
