Farrakhan says Obama ‘didn’t do anything for black people’

Minister Louis Farrakhan doesn’t think much of the “legacy” that President Barack Obama has warned would be jeopardized if people don’t vote for Hillary Clinton in November. In fact, Farrakhan feels that Obama’s legacy has shown more support for Israel and for gay rights than for African-American people.

“I just want to tell you, Mr. President, you’re from Chicago, and so am I,” said Minister Farrakhan while speaking at a service at Union Temple Baptist Church in Washington, D.C. on Sunday.

“I go out in the streets with the people. I visited the worst neighborhoods. I talked to the gangs. And while I was out there talking to them, they said ‘You know, Farrakhan, the president ain’t never come. Could you get him to come and look after us?’” he added.

He then laid into the president, saying, “There’s your legacy, Mr. President… it’s in the streets with your suffering people, Mrs. President. And if you can’t go and see about them, then don’t worry about your legacy… ’cause the white people that you serve so well… they’ll preserve your legacy — the hell they will — but you didn’t earn your legacy with us!”

“You didn’t earn your legacy with Black people. You fought for the rights of gay people… You fight for Israel… Your people are suffering and dying in the streets! That’s where your legacy is. Now you failed to do what should have been done.”
