Below is a transcript from an interview by Journalist Louis Lomax for the television program “The Hate That Hate Produced.” In it Lomax asks Muhammad about his teachings and the doom of the white race.

[LL] Although you have said that the white race is doomed and that they are a race of devils. Do you make any distinction? Are there any good white people? For example suppose I were to ask you whom you think is the best white man? Is there any such thing?

[THEM] I’ll let the Bible answer that. It says no not one is good.

[LL] Now if I have understood your teachings correctly, you teach that all of the members of Islam are God and that one among you is supreme and that that one is Allah. Now have I understood you correctly?

[THEM] That’s right.

[LL] Now. You have on the other hand said that Allah has taught you that the devil is the white man.

[LL] That the white man is a doomed race?

[THEM] Yes.

[LL] Am I correct there sir?

[THEM] Yes.

[LL] now that you have said sir that approx…between now and approximately 1970 there should come a reawakening…

[THEM] …a general resurrection…

[LL] …of the American Negro.

[THEM] …that’s right.

[LL] …and that the extended time for the white man …uh… may well run out and that that will come and in terms of a war between God and the devil.

[LL] this coming destruction of the white man. Will there be any bloodshed involved in this or will it be a complete mental thing?

[THEM] According to the …uh… teachings of the prophets of old and …uh… of God himself there will be plenty bloodshed. Plenty of it.

[LL] Have you ever been accused, sir, of preaching hate?

[THEM] Yes.

[LL] Do you think you are preaching hate?

[THEM] No.

[LL] What are you preaching sir?

[THEM] Truth.

[LL] and if the truth ..uh… is irritable or objectionable?

[THEM] …or classified as hate then …uh…uh… I can not help that.

The Mhotep Corporation uses its Keyamsha The Awakening brand to heighten perceptions and expand awareness. By producing content that engages, entertains and educates we create value for value relationships with our audience for mutual benefit. Mhotep is derived from the name of the architect and builder of the first pyramid in Kemet, so-called ancient Egypt. I formed the Mhotep Corporation in 2003 to produce and distribute 3D animation videos based on traditional African stories. Since then it has evolved to being a media production company including books. In a previous life I worked as a systems analyst developing solutions for government and multinational organizations. Born and educated in Washington, D.C. I have traveled to several places including Haiti, the Bahamas, Mexico, Canada, Nigeria (several times), Ethiopia (several times), Benin, Togo, and South Africa. I am married with three children.
