Need for Reparations for Slavery Urgent Due to Imminent Doom of America
HOUSTON (March 23, 2014) — Hundreds of people have signed Reparations Petitions (digitally and on paper) preceding an Open Letter to the U.S. President Obama, Congress, the Joint Chief of Staff, and the Pope of Rome urging America to honor its reparations obligations to Afrodescendants.
“We, the undersigned, urgently request sea-going and air-going ships or vessels and freeway, highway, bridge, and road-building materials and equipment,” said Mr. Silis Muhammad, Chief Executive Officer of the Lost-Found Nation of Islam, in the letter.
