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.

    I would like to know what his Muslim friends think about him being OK with people choosing same sex marriages. Isn't that something you get stoned to death for back in the holy land.

    Stay home moms would be great. It's either mom raises your children, or day care. What would be better for your children?

    According to U.S. Govt. it won't be before 2050. The black race is 13% of our population and they predict it will still be 13% in 2050. The old hater and Racist FarraNUT will long be dead be then.

    There may be some truth in women staying home to take care of the children. children need to be brought up by the parents not a babysitter, but the women cant really afford to stay home these days. The only good thing about becoming a minority is that now we would get the government perks that minority groups get.

    It's time to leave the color behind and stand as Americans. This man also called the white man, white devils with blue eyes. Now the comment about birth control so white man is not a minority! Hate speaks racisim and it's time to let all color go! Who cares who the minority is and also women are in the work place and what a racist comment towards females!

    Maybe it is because the working white population can't afford to pay for the high cost of welfare for those children. Stats show they are more likely to end up on the government dole or in prison than most. Mr. Farrekhan, you should have said any more babies, not no more babies, double negative, learn the language if you are going to live here.

    Racism is not acceptable regardless who it comes from. The comment in itself is ignorant and have no truth. I honestly pray for healing for all of those who have or preach hate.

    Of course the mother should stay at home, it is the role of the smarter parent to teach their offsprings.
