After Beyoncé’s pro-black performance of ‘Formation’ at the Super Bowl 50 police unions across America have stated that they will not offer protection at Beyoncé’s concert venues.
The Nation of Islam(NOI) has promised to protect Beyoncé during her Formation tour that starts on April 27, 2016.
On February 21, 2016 Minister Farrakhan addressed 14,000 NOI followers in Detroit and stated that the Fruit of Islam (the security arm of NOI) will offer protection to Beyoncé when she goes on tour.
In his address he said…
“She started talking that Black stuff and White folks say, ‘Well, we don’t know how to deal with that. Well, you taught us everywhere we went about the Holocaust, but we have sympathy for you. But when one of us shows some independence, look at how you’re treating Beyoncé now. You’re going to picket. You’re not going to offer her police protection. But the FOI will” said Farrakhan the leader of the Nation of Islam.
Rapper Kendrick Lamar who gave an unforgettable performance at the Grammys was praised by the Minister for creating a new path in Hip Hop. The 82-year-old Farrakhan said…
“He freed rappers to come on up. He’s the boss. He’s the boss. Now when the rappers are free to say it like it is and say what they feel and teach their people through music and Rap and song and dance, the cultural revolution is on”
