Minister Farrakhan Responds to President Obama’s ‘Personal Insult’ Comments
On Sept. 18, Minister Louis Farrakhan slams President Barack Obama’s recent plea to Black voters at the Union Temple Baptist Church in Washington, D.C.
During his final address to the Congressional Black Caucus, Obama urged Black voters to support Hillary Clinton.
“… My Name may not be on the ballot but our progress is on the ballot. Tolerance is on the ballot … I will consider it a personal insult. An insult to my legacy if this community lets down its guard and fails to activate itself in this election …”
However, Farrakhan believes the president failed the Black community and does not deserve to ask them to support Clinton.
He adds that Obama did not help the people suffering in Chicago, and many residents were disappointed by his inability to come and speak with them.
“There’s your legacy Mr. President,” Farrakhan starts. ” It’s in the street, with your suffering people … And if you can’t go and see about them, the white people you’ve served so well, will preserve your legacy. The hell they will. You didn’t earn your legacy with us … [Obama] didn’t earn your legacy with Black people. You fought for the rights of gay people. You fight for Israel. Your people are suffering and dying in the streets!”
