Judge: No sign that Nation of Gods is prison risk
by Ed White
Is the Nation of Gods and Earths/Five Percent a religion or something less than heavenly?
A federal judge in Detroit is recommending the Michigan prison system recognize it as a religion and lift a ban on the group's literature among inmates.
An inmate, Dion Hardaway, said he lost work and school privileges and was designated a security threat until he renounced his membership in the group, an offshoot of the Nation of Islam that promotes black empowerment.
