News Americas, NEW YORK, NY, Fri. Nov. 11, 2016: Controversial Caribbean-roots Nation of Island leader Louis Farrakhan has taken to Twitter in the hours since the election of Republican Donald Trump to issue a call to action to the black community.

Farrakhan, who was born Louis Eugene Wolcott to a Jamaican father and a Saint Kitts and Nevis-born mother, said Thursday that “Black people must take control of our communities now!”

“Are you ready to do what is necessary to obtain freedom, justice and equality? All it takes is testicular fortitude,” he tweeted along with a picture that read: “You can’t be free if you have testicles the size of dried up fruit.”

And he added: “Whether you want to or not, circumstances will force you to do the very thing you don’t think you will ever do.”

Farrakhan had been critical Saturday in Charleston, S.C., of both candidates in the 2016 election, calling them Lucifer and Satan.

He also compared the black community to Lazarus then, telling the audience of hundred: “You’ve been in your grave 400 years and you’ve got a stench. … Fornicating, adultery, lying, pimps, hustlers, gamblers, thieves. Look at yourselves.”
