Tonight’s meeting at the Shiloh Baptist Church in Washington, D.C., marked the first stop on Minister Louis Farrakhan’s #JusticeOrElse tour, on which the 82-year-old will discuss plans for the 20th anniversary of the Million Man March this October. One significant change announced tonight: the 2015 march will include women as well.
That certainly wasn’t all Farrakhan had on his mind. He also called on President Obama to apologize for calling the youth of Baltimore “thugs,” when the members of the #BaltimoreUprising are more closely comparable to the members of the original Boston Tea Party — not the first time we’ve heard the rioters and looters compared to the founding fathers.
Farrakhan had a lot on his mind to share with the younger generation.
Farrakhan had more to say about President Obama than his use of the word “thugs.”
Farrakhan cleared up one question that’s been bothering a lot of people.
