The Roundtable with Brother Muhammad interviews Sis Tenaja Ali, creator and owner of Navy Bliss Foods, LLC, regarding her product line, the Nation of Islam's "Do-for-Self" work ethic, food science and why healthy lifestyle choices are important for America's Black community. Designing her business around the Honorable Elijah Muhammad's landmark books, "How to Eat to Live" 1 and 2, and her father's example of eating one meal a day since 1969, Sis Tenaja shares her vision of how the navy bean can revolutionize not only a new staple diet in the Black community, but also how it can create new economic opportunities for individuals, organizations and businesses.

We Can’t Trust You: Experimentation, Exploitation and the Hidden History of American Medical Abuses

- September 22, 2020


In this 1950's photo released by the National Archives, a black man included in a syphilis study has blood drawn by a doctor in Tuskegee, Ala. For 40 years starting in 1932, medical workers in the segregated South withheld treatment for unsuspecting men infected with a sexually transmitted disease simply so doctors could track the ravages of the horrid illness and dissect their bodies afterward. Finally exposed in 1972, the study ended and the men sued, resulting in a $9 million settlement. (National Archives via AP)

Emphatically no, Walt Boarderly, an entrepreneur and Philadelphia business owner, replied when asked if he would take the Covid-19 vaccine. Mr. Boaderly isn’t anti-vaccine, saying he will take the flu shot. “There is just too much uncertainty when it comes to this new vaccine,” he said.

Blacks do not trust President Trump’s Covid-19 vaccine push, and there is plenty of reason to be distrustful. Black people have been the victims of medical experiment, exploitation and abuses by their White enslavers and White doctors from the time the good ship Jesus hit America’s shores. These medical researchers have been like a pack of crazed dogs chasing their helpless prey.

In her comprehensive book “Medical Apartheid,” Harriett Washington details abuses committed against Blacks and how throughout the 19th century medical schools used Blacks in live surgical demonstrations.

‘Why would we send our people to the slaughterhouse?’

Amid tens of thousands of new Covid-19 cases reported daily in the United States, the fever pitch to get a vaccine on the market in a fraction of the time it normally takes is pressing forward.

This, despite a lack of participation in clinical trials from Blacks, who second only to health workers, have been targeted for a vaccine by national health agencies. There is also an effort underway to get Black groups to co-sign the drive for the vaccine with top officials speaking to Black groups and organizations.

U.S. voters are skeptical when it comes to a potential Covid-19 vaccine and say that one made available this year would be rushed, at least according to a recent CBS poll on the matter. “Just 21% of voters nationwide now say they would get a vaccine as soon as possible if one became available at no cost, down from 32% in late July. Most would consider it but would wait to see what happens to others before getting one,” noted cbsnews.com. When asked what their first thought would be if a vaccine was made available this year 35 percent of those surveyed said it would be a scientific achievement but 65 percent said their first thought would be that it was “rushed through.”

Thousands declare ‘get your knee off of our necks’ at March on Washington anniversary gathering
By Michael Z. Muhammad, Contributing Writer
- September 1, 2020





WASHINGTON—The summer of virus and rage culminated at the Lincoln Memorial with the political gathering of the summer as thousands of mostly Black and Brown people, young and old gathered to demand change on the same day as the first March on Washington almost six decades ago.

It was 57 years to the day when Martin Luther King predicted in his historic “I Have a Dream” speech that “the whirlwinds of revolt will continue to shake the foundations of our nation until the bright day of justice emerges.”

A few short months ago, George Floyd died in police custody in Minneapolis, causing an earthquake of revolt, shaking America to its core and sparking the cry “get your knee off our necks.” A now fired and charged White cop sat with his knee on the neck of the Houston native as life left the Black man’s body.
