President Obama has finally done it – riled the emotions of one of the black community’s loudest, most outspoken and bluntly critical leaders.
Who is it?
Not Rev. Al Sharpton – and not Jesse Jackson. Good guesses.
But rather, it’s Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, and the globally recognized minister just recently took to a Union Temple Baptist Church podium in Washington, D.C., to chastise Obama for various offenses, but none so notable as failing the black community.
“Your people are suffering and dying in the streets,” Farrakhan said, Breitbart reported. “You failed to do what should have been done.”
The Nation of Islam leader told Obama he might as well let Republican Donald Trump “do what he wants to because he is not destroying your legacy.”
In other words, he said Obama didn’t give Democrats anything, and he didn’t give the black community anything.
“I just want to tell you, Mr. President, you’re from Chicago and so am I,” Farrakhan said, Breitbart reported. “I visited the worst neighborhoods. I talked to the gangs. And while I was out there talking to them they said, ‘You know, Farrakhan, the president ain’t never come. Could you get him to come and look after us?’ There’s your legacy, Mr. President. It’s in the streets with your suffering people.”
Farrakhan also said the “white people that [Obama] served so well” will step up and “preserve” his legacy – not.
“The hell they will,” he said. “Your people are suffering and dying in the streets. That’s where your legacy is. Now you failed to do what should have been done.”
