GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) -- Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan says white people are promoting birth control for black women because they fear becoming a minority in the United States.
Farrakhan spoke Saturday at Fountain Street Church in Grand Rapids, invited by the Grand Rapids Community College Black Student Union.
He says white Americans will lose their majority by 2050 and says they've introduced birth control to black women "because they don't want no more black babies."
Farrakhan says he opposes same-sex relationships. He says he isn't "homophobic" and isn't "afraid of people who choose a lifestyle that's different" but rather is afraid for them.
The Chicago-based Farrakhan says women's role is to stay home and raise children with strong moral values.
He also says he isn't anti-Semitic.
