First if Trump and his supporters is the bar Farrakhan gotta jump over, that reflects poorly on Farrakhan and his supporters. Also, this argument that he is not in political power so his bigotry should matter less is exactly the same argument dwalk31 uses to excuse Trump's racism when he speaks on the Biden's role in the crime bill. So just like with Delk, I am not sympathetic to this argument. Yes Trump's bigotry is more dangerous, but at the end of the day Farrakhan is still a bigot too.I mean...let’s say 80 percent of what he says is great and you get motivated by it and do better. And you have the mind and common sense to disagree with the other. Should you get cancelled for it? Double standard with trump supporters who follow a clown that says 10 percent good stuff and 90 percent utter trans, homo, Islam, Jew phobic comments and ACTIONS with his laws
Second, I said nothing about cancelling Farrakhan. I understand why some black folk used to and still rock with him, but I am not one of them.Sure he makes some good points, but there are so much good information out there spread by so many people, I don't feel I need to check for dude generally, plus there are other problematic aspects with ole boy. To me, the juice isn't worth the squeeze when it comes to him.
