Louis Farrakhan Jr., the eldest son of radical Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan died in Phoenix on Saturday. He was 60 years-old.
Farrakhan Jr. suffered from a heart condition and he “passed peacefully in his sleep at the family home,” according to the Nation of Islam.
“We thank Allah (God) for the life of Louis, Jr., his contribution to rise of Black and oppressed people and for touching so many of us in a deep and very personal way. He worked alongside his father and family in fulfilling the mission of the Hon. Elijah Muhammad and the Nation of Islam and his dedication and sacrifice to our cause will never be forgotten,” read the Nation’s statement.
The elder Farrakhan, a radical anti-Semite, called last week for white men to be killed.
The New York Times claimed that conservative media is trying “to tar Democrats by linking them to” the anti-Semite. However, it was the New York Times that whitewashed several Democrats’ ties to Farrakhan.
Farrakhan is a notorious racist as well. He has praised Adolf Hitler as a “very great man,” called white people “devils,” blamed Jews in Hollywood for gay marriage and described Jews as “satanic.”
Farrakhan called for an end to white men because their “nature is not in harmony with the nature of God.” Farrakhan claimed that white men had squandered the time God gave them to rule.
The Janazah Service for Farrakhan Jr. will be on Friday, June 8th, 2018 at 3:00 p.m. at Mosque Maryam in Chicago.
