Less than one week from the horrific slayings of 9 innocent black people at Charlotte AME Church came a solid wall of unity and power. Muslims, Christians and the media assembled at the Historic African Methodist Episcopal Church in Washington DC for the official press conference announcing the 20th Anniversary of the Million March March which will be held on 10-10-2015.
The press conference started with prayer and introductions by freedom fighter Tamika Mallory, Reverend Willie Wilson and Pastor Jamal Bryant of Empowerment Temple who electrified the audience by saying “Christians are going to unite with the Nation of Islam and nobody is going to turn us around.”
The key note speaker, The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan brought the house down with powerful words of separation and economic withdrawal opposed to the message of atonement 20 years ago. Addressing the recent motions to remove the Confederate flags from government buildings The Minister said “I don’t know what this fuss is about putting the Confederate Flag down, we need to put the American Flag down because we caught just as much hell over that! what the hell is the use paying allegiance to that Flag! (American flag)” He continued by saying “We fought in wars under that flag, then came home and got hung under that flag”. The Minister also said he respects the United States Flag as a independent nation.
Here are some real statistics concerning the conditions in the US today.
-45.3M people in the USA are living in poverty.
-Black unemployment is twice that of whites
-60% of people in prison are Black & Latino
-32% of Native American youth under 18 live in poverty

Minister Farrakhan stressed that “the real thug don’t rob banks, he robs countries”. He noted that Justice is what black people know because of the brutal mistreatment by whites for more than 460 years. He also explained that the “Or Else” is God.
