Reader comment on item: How Elijah Muhammad Won

Submitted by R.F. (United States), Jul 26, 2002 at 18:12

I hope one day, someone will write a full-blown book interviewing the so-called "wives" of Elijah Muhammad. Malcolm X was called a hypocrite behind the scandal. There is no one in the organization, today, who can justify it. And I wouldn't be surprised if "the children of divine" are following Farrakhan today. Its about money, power, and sex. When you get too old, and you've worked real hard, you want to "enjoy the fruits" of your labor. In Mr.Muhammad's case, that was money, prestige, luxury, sex, and power. All in the name of God.
