Nation of Islam leader Minister Louis Farrakhan has never been adverse to speaking his mind. In fact, for a while in the 1980s and 90s, he was considered public enemy No. 1 for his fearless and fiery oratory, inflammatory pronouncements and wholesale denunciation of white supremacy in America.
The former Louis X, a former protégé of the late, legendary Malcolm X, has over the years come under fire at irregular intervals for allegedly playing a part in creating a toxic, hostile atmosphere under which Malcolm was murdered in February of 1965 in Harlem, N.Y. Members of the Nation of Islam were apprehended and convicted in Malcolm’s assassination.
