The Nation believed that the white man was a “grafted” creature made in a laboratory by a mad black scientist named Yakub. The loony scientist did the dirty deed 6,000 years ago, intent on destroying the world. “Mother ships” were circling the Earth and waiting for the cosmic order to rain fire on the United States, which was prophesied to burn for 777 years.
