    Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan is calling upon black people to unite and help redevelop Detroit.

    Farrakhan's remarks came Sunday as the Chicago-based movement wrapped up its four-day Saviour's Day convention in Detroit, which has a black majority population.



    Farrakhan, 82, told a crowd at Joe Louis Arena: "Detroit can be a great, great city again." He says "opportunity is here, but the disunity is also here."

    "Detroit can be the new mecca," Farrakhan said. "It can be great, great city. And it's 83 percent black."

    His speech, entitled "Divine Instructions: Commands for 2016," was streamed live on the National of Islam website.

    That sounds like a full proof plan to ensure economic recovery and bring back the businesses that left.

    Yes. Good idea. And while you're at it, build up walls and secede from the union entirely. You will be missed and my property value will skyrocket.

    Great plan!
    Combine the peaceful nature of the poor black community with the live-and-let-live attitude of the devout Muslims

    Perfect chance to try giving all illegal immigrants already here a chance to work their way to citizenship -- earning a green card might work.
