    Outrage over 'terrible' Atlantic apologist piece on Louis Farrakhan

    The Atlantic magazine faced backlash Sunday after publishing a piece that attempted to justify why Women's March co-founder Tamika Mallory has declined to cut ties with anti-Semitic Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan.

    The piece by Atlantic senior editor Adam Serwer explained that "because of the [Nation of Islam's] ongoing presence in many poor and working class black communities, time and again Farrakhan is able to threaten the mainstream political ambitions of black public figures who, for good reasons and bad, choose to deal with him."

    "[Many] black people," Serwer added, "come into contact with the Nation of Islam as a force in impoverished black communities ... who have been written off or abandoned by white society.

    So here's a question for our extremist friends here.

    Do you buy Tamika Mallory's excuse for supporting a racist like Louis Farrakhan?

    I mean if the KKK was building houses for Habitat for Humanity would that legitimize the David Dukes of the world?

    We have outlaw motorcycle gangs here in Texas that do these Toys for Tots runs around Christmas to provide toys for poor children.

    They actually have a huge turn out and provide thousands of gifts for poor children.

    But, at the end of the day, they are still running weapons and drugs in our communities.

    I got a problem with that.

    Sometimes the good WILL NOT outweigh the bad.

    Give it a rest, at least until you condemn your fellow racists who's actions dictate the need for someone like Farrakhan.

    Clearly .... you support this kind of racism and bigotry.

    Personally .... I don't think anything dictates the need for this kind of racism and bigotry.

    But, thanks for playing.

    Who is outraged? Is it because the writing is terrible, (it seems ok to me) or because it's about Farrakhan?

    I have no respect for Farrakhan. he's an antisemitic piece of garbage; a black nationalist who seeks to demonize other groups rather than to inspire. he is a false prophet of racial hatred.

    He has a lot in common with the people who created the environmental opportunity for him. A mirror held up to the blind haters.
