In an interview, Malcolm X explained his views, “What I want to know is how the white man, with the blood of black people dripping off his fingers, can have the audacity to be asking black people, ‘do they hate him?’ That takes a lot of nerve.” When asked why he called it “good news” that 120 white Atlantans had died in an airplane crash, Malcolm X replied, “Sir, as I see the law of justice, it says as you sow, so shall you reap… We Muslims believe that the white race, which is guilty of having oppressed and exploited and enslaved our people here in America, should and will be the victims of God’s divine wrath.”
Last month Rev. Jeremiah Wright reaffirmed that 9/11 was America’s fault. “We bombed Hiroshima. We bombed Nagasaki… and we never batted an eye….We have supported state terrorism against the Palestinians and black South Africans, and now we are indignant because the stuff that we have done overseas is now brought right back into our own front yards. America’s chickens are coming home to roost.”
Is the tune beginning to sound familiar?
Wright was actually quoting Malcolm X, who said two weeks after President Kennedy’s assassination that the president’s death was a case of “chickens coming home to roost.”
Less surprising than would have been previously thought, Reverend Jeremiah Wright’s words echo the chorus of Black Muslim/Nation of Islam leaders Fard, Muhammad, “X” and Farrakhan. In December, Wright’s church gave Louis Farrakhan a lifetime achievement award – the same Farrakhan who has repeatedly filled the airwaves with hate toward “blue-eyed devils” (whites), America and “bloodsuckers” (Jews).
