A proletarian critique of the Nation of Islam - Melancholic Troglodytes

This is a proletarian critique of the U.S. based Nation of Islam (NOI). With anything between 20,000 and 100,000 members and capable of engineering massive reactionary mobilizations, the Nation represents a significant counter-revolutionary force.

Melancholic Troglodytes hope this text will encourage further analysis of NOI, religion and race from a class perspective.
