Minister Louis Farrakhan is using social media to proclaim his innocence against claims that he was involved in the assassination of Malcom X.

Today marks the 53rd anniversary of Malcolm X’s death.

On Instagram Farrakhan posted:

“I did not kill Malcolm X. The enemy is so frightened that Black people listen to Farrakhan that they put it out that Farrakhan had something to do with the murder of Malcolm X. This is how wicked the media is. Don’t you know as much as they hate me, if they had any proof that I did something like that, don’t you know they would take me off the street in the twinkling of an eye and bury me under the jail? I had nothing to do with my brother’s death, but I am what I am because I am a good student. #Farrakhan

Rumors have swirled for decades that Louis Farrakhan had a hand in the killing of Malcom X, who was gunned down during a speech in the Audubon Ballroom in New York on February 21, 1965.

Setting rumors to rest

Louis Farrakhan accompanied the post on Instagram with an older clip where he describes his last conversation with Malcolm X.

“The enemy is so frightened that Black people listen to Farrakhan that they put it out that Farrakhan had something to do with the murder of Malcolm X. This is how wicked the media is.”

He continued:

“I learned a lot from Brother Malcolm, but the teacher of both Malcolm, Muhammad Ali, myself and thousands of others is the Honorable Elijah Muhammad and I would hope that you will all get more acquainted with the Honorable Elijah Muhammad because God gifted us with a great man in our midst.”

Farrakhan has always maintained his innocence and in his latest post he linked to the Nation of Islam’s website so that visitors can review materials associated with Malcolm X’s murder.
