Sorry this is written two years later than then comment I am responding to, but I had to give my feedback. On 02/01/03 K.B. wrote:

After far as the NoI is concerned this statement is true and that was what Mr. Pipes was referring to.

I remember over ten years ago a NoI member was selling magazines on a corner and engaged me in what began as a pleasant conversation. We continued our conversation on a bus and he began to tell me that I was a white devil. I protested that I am Puerto Rican and probably have African blood, but he continued to insist that I am a white devil. I gave this man my time and was only insulted in return.

Why such racism is tolerated in this day and age I dont know, but the fact remains that NoI is a racist and intolerant cult. Mr. Pipes' comment in the 2nd to last paragraph of his article is a true statement.
