Farrakhan: Red Cross is Racist

After a one day tour of hurricane damaged Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama, Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan addressed an audience at the Southern University in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. As printed in the official student newspaper The Southern Digest:

"FEMA is too white, the Red Cross is too white. You know that there is racism in education, racism in politics, racism in economics, racism in jurisprudence, racism in public policy, racism in international policy...Well then, why wouldn't racism be a part of FEMA? Why wouldn't racism rear its ugly head in the Red Cross or United Way?"

I think it's important to report what Farrakhan says outside of the mainstream media. Why? Because some mainstream politicians are giving him legitimacy by speaking at the Millions More march. We need to let the politicos know this is not OK.
