Reader comment on item: How Elijah Muhammad Won
in response to reader comment: The racism reversed

George W. Bush was vilified because, when he was governor, he did not classify the murder (by dragging to death) of James Byrd down in Texas as a "hate crime". But, when an appeal for clemency for the murderers reached him, he didn't even pretend to be gone fishing, but forthrightly said no, and sent to vicious thugs to their date with the executioner.

It's interesting that Elijah Muhammad thought that white domination would end in 1914. I wonder if he might have been influenced by the Jehovah's Witnesses as well?
