    ELIJAH MUHAMMAD, LEADER AND SELF-STYLED PROPHET OF THE BLACK MUSLIMS - A MILITANT PRO-NEGRO MOVEMENT IN THE UNITED STATES - MADE A RARE PUBLIC APPEARANCE IN PUBLIC LAST SUNDAY WHEN HE ADDRESSED THE ANNUAL CONVENTION OF THE MOVEMENT AT A RALLY IN PHILADELPHIA.

    DELIVERING A BITTER ATTACK ON THE WHITE POPULATION AND THE INTEGRATION MOVEMENT, HE SAID THAT MANY NEGROES WERE "WALKING AROUND, PRAYING AND HOPING THAT THE WHITE MAN WILL SOFTEN UP".HE CONTINUED: "THERE IS NOTHING IN HIM TO SOFTEN UP.HE WAS NOT MADE WITH ANY FEELINGS AT ALL....HE MUST CREATE EVIL".

    MUHAMMAD SAID WHITE MEN "FOOL YOU BY TELLING YOU 'DON'T HATE NO ONE'.YOU SHOULD TELL THEM 'THEN WHAT THE HELL HAVE YOU BEEN DOING TO ME' (APPLAUSE)".
