Farrakhan delivered Tookie eulogy
This fact is buried at the end of the LA Times' write-up. Kind of tells you all you need to know.
To be fair, the second paragraph mentions that "dozens of Crips gang members" tried to attend. No word on how many former gang members converted by Tookie to the path of light showed up. Fine, that's a little unfair.
In any case, my own sources told me that the head of the Progressive Jewish Alliance, who was actively involved in the Save Tookie campaign, cancelled his appearance on the funeral dais when he learned of Farrakhan's involvement. Good for him, I say!
