The American white people are more concerned about mistreating the Black once-slave
of America than America is concerned with any nation on earth that is attacking her out-
lying posts. Her enemies are intensifying their attacks on her. America is right out of the
frying pan into the fire all over the earth, due to her evil intentions against her loyal
Black once-slaves. Her talk of evil-doing against the Black once-slave in America is worse
than it is against independent nations that are trying to attack and destroy her country.
White America has more hatred for the Black once-slaves in her midst who are faithfully
fighting on the firing- line to help her against her enemy than she is against the enemy
that they are shooting down.
White America talks of building concentration camps (prison houses) for the Black once-
slave (the Black man in America). I am told that America already has concentration
camps built for this purpose. Concentration camps are jail houses – prison houses. This is
why I cry day and night to my Black brothers to seek refuge in Allah (God) in such a time
The Muslims do not have to worry about any such imprisonment, for the Muslim is
already a citizen of the Nation of Islam, and we have our own people (Muslims) to deliver
us by the order of God. This is why it is so necessary that the Black man in America
accept Allah (God) and His name and get out of the name of the enemy white slave-
master, who does not seek to bring peace for us; but the enemy seeks to bring about our
White America wants her Black once-slave to suffer that which is not due to the Black
once-slave. The Black once-slave has not sinned nor has the Black once-slave attacked
other nations except under the order of his white slave-master.
