Detroit Free Press
DETROIT — In a fiery speech delivered to 18,000 at Joe Louis Arena, Minister Louis Farrakhan blasted the judicial systems in the U.S. as being biased against African Americans, calling upon the community to set up their own courts.

“We want equal justice under the law,” Farrakhan said on the last day of the Nation of Islam’s annual convention, held in Detroit this year.

“Our people can’t take much more. We have to have our own courts,” he said.

With U.S. Rep. John Conyers, a Detroit Democrat, and Detroit City Council President Brenda Jones sitting behind him, Farrakhan spoke for nearly three hours, reiterating the Nation of Islam’s view that the U.S. is a land headed for destruction because it has disobeyed the word of God.

Farrakhan suggested that African Americans rely on the Quran and Bible to help set up their own legal system that would be more fair to African Americans.

“Has America been just to us?” he asked the crowd.

“No,” the crowd responded

“So ... if we retaliate, you can bring out your soldiers. We got some, too.”
