The Nation of Islam Offers to Protect Beyoncé on Tour if Police Won't
It’s good to know that now, even after the release of her most political video yet, which followed a Black Panther-referencing performance at the Super Bowl, and widely expressed criticism from police, Beyoncé still has some who got her back.
While the police think that her new song is a personal attack on them, Islam’s nation is stepping in on the game.
The thing that is really amazing to me is the fact that her upcoming concert is actually threatened to be boycott in the area by The Miami Police Union. Also one non-police-affiliated group attempted to protest her Super Bowl appearance (though the event was mostly attended by Black Lives Matter supporters).
Now, after all this has happened, Nation of Islam Minister Louis Farrakhan has offered Beyoncé security provided by the Fruit of Islam, the Nation of Islam's paramilitary branch if the local police really do not work the Queen's shows. Talk about having back up!
On Sunday, the minister said in a sermon in Detroit: "She started talking that black stuff, and white folks said, 'We don't know how to deal with that,; But when one of us shows some independence, look at how you treating Beyoncé now. You gonna picket. You not gonna offer her police protection? But the F.O.I. will."
However Beyoncé has not yet responded to Farrakhan's offer.
