“I said, ‘Why did not you all rise up and censure this Judas, Uncle Tom member of your class?'’ I said, ‘I know the reason you won’t do it is because the same rottenness that’s in his heart is also in your own.’ I said, ‘But we're going to make an example of Milton Coleman.’ I'm going to stay on his case until we make him a fit example for the rest of them. ‘What do you intend to do to Milton Coleman?’ At this point, no physical harm. But at this point we’re going to keep on going until we make it so that he cannot enter in on any Black people.”“Farrakhan on Race, Politics and the News Media,” New York Times, April 17, 1984, https://www.nytimes.com/1984/04/17/us/farrakhan-on-race-politics-and-the-news-media.html.
