Was Louis Lane The First #TransRacial? Or Wallie Dodd Ford?

The founder of the Nation of Islam (NOI), Wallie Dodd Ford [he had many names: Wali Farrad, W.D. Fard, Wallace Fard Muhammad, Farrad Muhammad, Master Fard Muhammad] never claimed to be black or of a mixed ethnicity (on his marriage certificate he claimed Spanish heritage… in other words, he was a charlatan). Later, however, leaders in NOI have claimed Walli’s Trans-Racialism for him… contrary to the evidence.

  • In the 1920 United States Census he [Wallie Dodd Ford] reported his race as white, his occupation as a proprietor of a restaurant, and gave his place of birth as New Zealand. He provided no known place of birth for his parents, nor his date of immigration.” (WIKI)

To be clear, though, he was also #Trans-Deistic:

  • God Is a Man. They teach that Allah “came to us from the Holy City of Mecca, Arabia, in 1930. He used the name of Wallace D. Fard.”3 “God is a man and we just cannot make Him other than man, lest we make Him an inferior one; for man’s intelligence has no equal in other than man.”
  • Atonement and Salvation. The Nation of Islam rejects the essential Christian doctrines of atonement and salvation. “We know we have a Savior. In 1877 a Savior was born [i.e., Wallace Fard]….A Savior is born, not to save the Jews but to save the poor Negro….A Savior has come to save you from sin, not because you are by nature a sinner but because you have followed a sinner.”
