On Wednesday (June 24), Farrakhan went in on the U.S. flag while speaking at the Metropolitan AME Church in Washington, D.C.
“We need to put the American flag down,” he told the crowd after letting them know that America doesn’t care about the nine people killed in a historic black Charleston church.
“What flag do the police have?” Farrakhan wondered. “What flag flies over the ‘non-Justice’ Department? What flag flies over the White House where a black man lives that’s called nigger every day?” His angry comments were met with wild cheers and applause.”
“We fought in wars under that flag,” he continued. “And came back and were hung and were murdered and brutalized under that flag.”
