On Jews

"Birth of a Nation was the first great movie that made a Jewish person a millionaire, but how did they depict us, and how are we depicted in film today?"

April 22, 1994: Interview with Barbara Walters on 20/20 April 22, 1994

Defending Khalid Muhammad

"While I rebuked the vile manner of his speech, I said I stand by those truths that he spoke.... If he calls Jews bloodsuckers of the black community, if we're going to be honest, in the 60s, many Jews were the merchants, they were the landlords, they were the furniture persons that we bought furniture from, they were the clothiers that we bought clothing from. And they grew in strength from our trade with them. Today, it's the Arabs and Koreans and others."

On the Assassination of Malcolm X

"I was not in any way involved in his murder But don't leave out the United States government. Don't leave out the FBI who had worked for years to separate Malcolm from the Honorable Elijah Muhammad."

April 30, 1994: University of Toledo, Toledo, Ohio

On Whites

"Is it wrong for me to remind you that you have suffered at the hands of white people? If I don't remind my people of what you people [whites] have done, you might get the mind to do it again. "

"You're being set up for the slaughter, because they [whites] know you are the people of God." When rich whites need a kidney or a heart, they say, "get us a nigger! When you're killing each other, they can't wait for you to die. You've become good for parts."

June 4, 1994: University of Nevada, Las Vegas

On Homosexuals

Farrakhan declared in a falsetto tone, "I'm a woman in a man's body trying to get out."

"Your Bible tells you that effeminates are not going to see the Kingdom. I didn't write it, it was here when I came."
