Farrakhan: No Money To Pay Debt

"The 48-year-old son of Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan claims he has never paid income tax, provides no support to the four mothers of his nine children, and lives off $350 he picks up each week from a secretary at his father's home on the South Side of Chicago," writes Andy Grimm of the Gary Post-Tribune. A Gary couple is still owed more than $50,000 in medical bills Nasir Farrakhan was ordered to pay after he was found guilty of reckless driving for ramming the couple's vehicle on the Indiana Toll Road in 2003 while driving his father's Hummer.

"Basically, (Nasir Farrakhan) is a man whom you can tell from today has never honored any of his obligations," said David Jensen, attorney for Charles and Gladys Peterson. According to Grimm's article, Farrakhan has "lived with a string of girlfriends and in a seedy Lakeview hotel, where Nation of Islam members sent by his father dropped off envelopes with cash." As well off financially as he reportedly is, you would think Louis would simply pay off his son's debt to the Peterson to avoid the bad publicity. It would make more sense than to reward his deadbeat son with weekly cash gifts. And after all, his son was working as head of his personal security detail at the time of the accident. It seems like the right thing to do.

Farrakhan nor his followers have any honor. They are nothing but dishonorable militant racists!
