The 83 year old National Representative of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad and Nation of Islam sat down with hosts Charlemange Tha God, Angela Yee and DJ Envy in their New York Studios on Monday, May 23rd for a very open dialogue. The show resonated so well with listeners that Minister Farrakhan became the number one topic trending on Facebook.
Full of enthusiasm, Minister Farrakhan responded to a variety of questions ranging from his take on the 2016 Presidential Candidates; mobilizing efforts since the 20th Anniversary of the Million Man March and training a new police force from ‘within’ the Black community to combat police brutality. He even weighed in on the sale of the gun used to kill Trayvon Martin by George Zimmerman. He likened Zimmerman’s action to those who sought to sell part of the cross used to crucify Jesus 2,000 years ago. One wonders how they were able to cover so many topics in a little over 90 minutes.
Co-host Angela Yee’s question, whether a woman should be judged by the way she’s dressed, invoked a passionate response from Minister Farrakhan. Ms. Yee’s question paved the way for a thought provoking discussion where the Minister delved not only into the physical value of the female but her mental and spiritual sacredness from a divine perspective. Clearly, he was not speaking according to the status quo and its treatment of females based on social norms.
While some may have taken issue with and prematurely charged the Minister with being outdated or out of step with the masses, a careful look into his words reveal he is in tune with the time and his deference to Divine Guidance affords him with vision to see what must be done.
Here are a few highlights from that segment (Click on images to view video clips):
The greatest indicator of a nation’s imminent fall, according to the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad, is the treatment and condition of its women and girls. According to the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad Teachings, “A Nation Can Rise No Higher Than It’s Woman.”
The dialogue between the hosts and Minister Farrakhan was commendable. Finally, a much needed generational heart to heart was taking place. Millions were awakened to the reality of the time and what must be done. Its clear to see why the Breakfast Club is called, “The World’s Most Dangerous Morning Show.”
Go back and revisit this historic interview with the Breakfast Club and the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan.
