    Did anyone hear the speech by Minister Farrakhan on Gil Nobels "Like It Is" program today? As a personal critic of Farrakhan on his various thought processes via his speeches, I found this to be the most realistic speech he ever made on national television as it regards the economy, the war, black reality, the police, military, white supremacy and a lot else. Normally I can only see him on a cable channel but channel 7 is not a cable channel, it is a national channel and that makes me wonder if we will even be hearing anymore about "Like It Is" on television.

    There was already a movement by white society to get that program off the air for two years now and this may be the nail in the coffin. If it is the nail I'll give Gil the props for going out with a bang!!!

    Yeah I saw the program, Gil always delivers as always- but, trust me; LIKE IT IS ain't going nowhere! It's been on for ages now and it is the most important show for Black people in the history of TV. They may TRY and get rid of Like It Is, but it is a Sisyphean task on thier part, and they will continue to fail.
    Like it is lives on.

    How can you even take him seriously enough to want to listen to anything he has to say?

    That is an honest question and I'd appreciate an answer.

    i don't agree with everything farrakhan says, but then again that goes for everyone else as well.....with that being said I've always had a healthy respect for the man and he speaks truth a lot of the time.

    The question was for Keita, but anyway...

    Farrakhan is an actor.

    Then begin quoting the person you address 360, and show and prove his actorship.
