Louis FARRAKHAN V.S Mike WALLACE (1996)
Below is a clip from an interview of Louis Farrakhan conducted in 1996 by Mike Wallace from ’60 minutes’ (an American television newsmagazine program). Mike Wallace accuses Nigeria of being the most corrupt nation in the world… and Louis Farrakhan’s epic response still holds true to this very day. In fact, his message resonates true to just about all western countries.
Let the citizens and peoples of the tricontinental, especially those in the Diaspora, go to their countries and help their people out of the conditions they are in, conditions which have been perpetuated by neo-imperialism.
“…The dynamism and determination of African youth, those who make up 70% of the continent’s population. Their political maturity has been striking to me. They have this Pan-African vision that make it indispensable for African countries and peoples to work together in order to turn the tables on those who are trying to carve the continent into pieces.”
Viva African youth!
Viva Mama Africa!
Down with Imperialism and Neo-colonialism!
