Minister Louis Farrakhan Urges Black Consumers to Boycott Christmas

In his first nationally-televised interview since announcing the 20th Anniversary Million Man March “Justice of Else!” rally, Minister Louis Farrakhan urged Black citizens to boycott Christmas.

The remarks came during an appearance on NewsOne Now when being interview by Host Roland Martin.

"We think they have taken advantage of us and our consumer dollars by materializing the respect and honor of Jesus, and making it a bonanza for white business," said Farrakhan. "So on Black Friday, we won’t be there. When they feel the pain of our withdrawal or our economic power from them, then we can talk about real change in America."

Farrakhan also shared his thoughts on income inequality, the devaluation of human life and the state of race relations in the country.
