There is no doubt that America is going through a profound transformation, and both political and cultural extremists are attempting to impose their individual brand of extremism and perhaps eventual dominance over the other.

Case in point Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan has once again come out of the shadows and has vowed to provide protection to pop star Beyoncé after at least one police union pledged to boycott the singer in the wake of her politically and racially charged halftime performance at the Super Bowl earlier this month.

Farrakhan delivered a sermon in Detroit Sunday on the last day of the Nation of Islam’s annual convention, telling a packed audience that “white folks” didn’t “know how to deal with” Beyoncé’s halftime performance, which featured a tribute to the militant (and often anti-law enforcement) Black Panther Party.

“She started talking all that black stuff… and white folks were like, ‘We don’t know how to deal with that,'” Farrakhan said, according TMZ. “Look at how you treatin’ Beyoncé now. You gonna picket. You not gonna offer her police protection. But the FOI [Fruit of Islam, the group’s security team] will.”

However on the other side of the extremist equation, is a cultural divide between those Muslim fundamentalists who regard Farrakhan, the Black Panther Party, and in particular powerful woman like Beyoncé’ as renegades, which stands in sharp contrast to the teachings of Islam.

Do you think Beyonce deserves the reaction she is getting from law enforcement?
