Separation is not Segregation

When our people hear us, the Muslims who follow the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan, say we want to to separate from white people, many if not most of them equate the word separate as the word segregate. Minister Farrakhan has clearly explained the differences between the two words: Segregation is an imposed separation of a superior upon an inferior. The inferior does not have the power to resist the superior. Separation is a mutual parting of two equals. Therefore, you have to believe that you are at least equal to white people to want to separate. Base on our behavior, it does not appear that most Black people believe we are the equal to white people. Therefore we can never survive let alone live separately from them. How can we persuade more of our people that not only can we live successfully apart from them, but actually THRIVE living in our own communities and eventually our world? I look forward to your response.

  1. I think we can persuade more of our people by giving current examples and also teaching them about historical towns we built. Also by educating them on the fact most of black communities are already segregated so why not separate by reviving our communities and doing what the minister has said and make them a decent place to live. 24/7 Wall St. Did an article in the huffpost.com called The 9 Most Segregated Cities In America and in the article ” According to Richard Rothstein, research associate at the Economic Policy Institute (EPI), segregation is no accident. Federal housing policies starting in the 1930s are largely to blame for ongoing racial segregation and its economic effects.”

    1. Thank you for you comment TMuhammad.
      I agree with you. Examples examples examples! This is one reason why we started the Time To Leave movement. Education is a start, but we need to see brothers and sisters (Muslims) in these communities.
      Peace.

      1. Yes sir I agree and I am excited to see it happen. I would like to help design a community for us !

  2. We must give living examples of black in America doing this. There are some but to make a collective effort to move to an area and God it is our next step. Talk, plan, move.
