Justice Or Else: Min. Louis Farrakhan Calls For Economic Boycott Of Black Friday Shopping To “Redistribute The Pain”

 

Minister Louis Farrakhan sat down with TV One’s Roland Martin for an exclusive hour-long interview on NewsOne Now to discuss the 20th anniversary of the Million Man March and the upcomingJustice Or Else rally slated to take place on October 10th, 2015.

During the one-hour exclusive, Min. Farrakhan discussed the meaning of the Justice Or Else title to commemorate the historic march. Farrakhan referenced Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. speaking out about the 1968 sanitation worker strike in Memphis, Tenn.

“We have to find a way to redistribute the pain,” Farrakhan said, citing King.

“He talked about going to businesses that benefited from Black dollars and he said, ‘We have to now withdraw our economic support, so that those who give us pain can receive some pain in return,’” he continued.

The African-American community wields between $1.1 and $1.5 trillion in consumer power, which makes ‘Black people a carcass where all the vultures gather to suck the life out of us,’ Farrakhan added.

“You’re either going to treat us right, or we’re going to withdraw from you our economic support,” he said.

“We intend to boycott Christmas, but not Jesus,” said Farrakhan. “So on Black Friday, we won’t be there.”

Martin highlighted the holiday boycott of 2014, during which many African-Americans decided to protest with their wallets and not spend dollars on the Friday after Thanksgiving.

Farrakhan continued, “We choose not to spend dollars on Black Friday, Black Saturday, Black Sunday, Black Monday. We are not going to spend our money for the rest of that year with those that we have traditionally spent our money on.”

Min. Farrakhan Talks #BlackLivesMatter & Young Activists

Minister Louis Farrakhan sat down with Roland Martin on TV One’s NewsOne Now for a live exclusive interview discussing the October 10th Justice Or Else rally in Washington, D.C. – twenty years after the Million Man March.

During this portion of their hour-long conversation, Min. Farrakhan shared his views on the Black Lives Matter Movement and young activists.

Of those who say “all lives matter,” Farrakhan said, “Black lives do matter, all life does matter, but if Black don’t matter, then why should your life matter, since all your lives came from the Black man and woman?”

“So I say to the sisters and brothers in Black Lives Matter, keep on pushing and we are with you, and don’t let anybody cause you to change your narrative,” he continued.

“Black lives matter, justice or else.”
