Journalist Reveals Photo Of Obama With Racist Louis Farrakhan Hidden From The Public Since 2005

It’s common knowledge that the media helped elect Obama in 2008 and continued to be his greatest defender throughout his presidency. A new photo has come to light however, which shows just how far one journalist went to protect him.

In 2005, Obama was photographed with Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan. The journalist who took the photo was Askia Muhammad. The photo was covered up for fear it would hurt Obama politically.

Barack Obama (D) and Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan that he took in 2005 at a Congressional Black Caucus meeting, but did not make public because he believed it would have “made a difference” to Obama’s political future.

The photographer, Askia Muhammad, told the Trice Edney News Wire that he “gave the picture up at the time and basically swore secrecy.”
