By WLTZ Staff Reports (Tuskegee, AL)- The controversial leader of the Nation of Islam, Minister Louis Farrakhan was in Tuskegee for a three day speaking tour despite protests by the Anti-defamation League calling on the school to cancel the event.
Farrakhan lived up to his controversial reputation drawing on the dog fighting scandal of Michael Vick among other things taking aim at the State to rally students in attendance.
"I see what they did to Michael Vick..over a dog...poor fellow. They made him go to jail and ya'll know ya'll have been using dogs to fight...and you've trained dogs to bite us..you know you did that..right here in Alabama, " Farrakhan told the crowd. "And you can never be equal to your former slave masters and their children with an inferior quality of education"
Farrakhan invited high school students from Notasulga and Booker T Washington but their respective school districts said it was a private event , not school sanctioned and parents would have to usher the kids to the three day event.
