Louis Farrakhan Explains Why Universities Try to Keep Him From Speaking to Black Students

Many universities will pay tens of thousands of dollars to bring speakers to their campuses.   Some of these speakers are mediocre and have messages that are not in the least bit empowering or enjoyable for an African American audience.  Some universities will spend $40,000 to bring in a rapper who speaks with profane language, referring to women as b*tches and hoes, without even blinking an eye.

The Hon. Louis Farrakhan is more famous and respected than most of these people.   He inspires black students unlike anyone else, respects women, tells black men to educate themselves and possesses intellectual capabilty that is proclaimed by many to be extraordinary.   Also, he doesn’t ask for a $30,000 fee like some rappers do.  Instead, he pays his own expenses and doesn’t request an honorarium.

If that’s the case, then why are many universities hesitant to allow Farrakhan to speak to black students?  Did you ever wonder why a rapper who teaches black people to shoot each other and remain ignorant is welcome, but another man who encourages them to lift up their communities is avoided like the plague?  We’ll let you think about that while you read this article from the Final Call:

College students from across the country gathered at Tennessee State University for the first Collegiate Black United Summit International conference October 31 to November 2.

Because of the difficulties caused by Superstorm Sandy, student leaders from parts of the East Coast were unable to make the trip, however, many others did, and enjoyed the three-day summit featuring the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan.

 The Minister got right to work speaking to approximately 30 student leaders on Nov. 1 at the Loews Vanderbilt Hotel. He was also the keynote speaker wrapping up the conference Nov. 2 at the Gentry Complex on TSU’s campus.

 Min. Farrakhan discussed the reasons many university officials and outside organizations work to prevent him from speaking to Black students on college campuses, even though he pays expenses for all of his staff and does not ask for an honorarium.

 “My purpose for coming, at my own expense, is to talk to you,” said the 79-year-old Muslim leader. “I’m not a young man, and as an older man starts going down into the valley of death, he wants to know what is coming behind him, that will make his living not in vain.”

 “If we lose you, we have no future. That’s how important you are to the future of our people and that’s why they have made it very difficult for Louis Farrakhan to come to speak to young Black students,” he added.

  1. Thank God for Misister Farrakan The white power Structure and their Negroes( Negroes a race created by white folks. white people in black skin ). They donot want you to know that George Washington was a slave owner, and not a founding father.Lincoln did not free the enslaved Africans. Why old white men did not give women the vote until the 19th amendment.When the constitution was written “All men are created equal meant all white men.”History has to be rewritten.Un til we tell our story history will always glorify them.

  2. not surprising….kkk gets a voice due to free speech every where, yet a black man trying to tell other young black men to stay in school, love your wife and stay out of trouble, now that s too controversia to be heardl….uggggggggggggggg! America sick!

  3. THEY ARE SCARE SOMEONE IS GOING TO TELL THESE FOOLS THE TRUTH…TELL THEM HOW TO BUILD REAL WEALTH IN THYE BLACK COMUNITIES…HOW TO STOP THE KILLING….HOW TO BUILD FARMING SYSTEM THAT CAN BE OUR FOOD STAMP SYSTEM….HOW TO MAKE CAR'S MACHINE ECT….THE WHITE MEN ARE AFFRAID THE BLACK WILL CHANGE BLACK AMERICA AS SELF SUUFFIENT PEOPLE….HOW TO BE PRODUCER AND BY WHAT YOU PRODUCE….AND NOW TO SHARE THE WEALTH FOR EVERY ONE TO GET A LITTER OF IT…..AND A LOT A OF BLACK THAT LIVE THAT RICH LIFE WE WHITE ONLY MONEY ARE SCARE. I'M NOT A MUSLIM AND DON'T WANT TO BE ONE BUT THE TRUTH IS THE THRUTH.

  4. That is odd….especially up in NY where, controversal speakers such as the president of Iran( Amadnadinijad) close enough.. is allowed to speak at prestigeous Ivy league Schools such as Columbia University..We preach freedom of speech, yet it seems that is only visable for some and not others…agree to disagree, and challenge his views but don't silence and dismiss..that's racism.

  5. The reason that the minister is avoided on campuses is it would be counterproductive.
    to the wishes of the people who own America.Their intentions are not to educate us.
    Rather to indoctrinate us, At this moment find people with all those letters behind their.
    names, can, t find a job.A truly educated person could create a job for his or herself.
    there are children that complete high school and can, t balance a check book.And that.
    includes me.Not that we couldn, t learn to do it, it wasn, t taught.From the fields to the.
    factories, and technological era, where we are not needed, by the time the child is in the third grade they know how many prisons they are going to need, while they figure.
    out what poisons they can use to shorten our life span.
