There are organizations out there that when you think of people that should be hosting programs n prisons or people that even would be willing to take money from the government the Nation of Islam would be the last people I would think of.
Reason being is that the NOI are the type of folks that would rather set themselves on fire than thank someone that isn’t a member of their organization for something.
The way that I have always understood things is that if you take money from the government for certain projects that there are very clear outlines regarding how that money is supposed to be spent. If you are a church and take government funding for a Sunday school breakfast program you can’t feed anyone on a Tuesday for example.
Now this is for a church that would theoretically welcome everyone. What does the government do when they are set up to give money to a program that is sponsored by a cult that wants to basically kill everyone t hat isn’t them?

According to a report by the Washington Examiner, the National of Islam has received hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars since 2008, to fund a program in which it taught its radical religious views to prisoners.
The Nation of Islam is a black nationalist group under the direction of Rev. Louis Farrakhan.
Farrakhan has a long history of anti-Semitism. In February he gave a speech that contained racist lines like “the powerful Jews are my enemy” and “the Jews were responsible for all of this filth and degenerate behavior that Hollywood.”
During that same speech he also said, “White folks are going down. And Satan is going down. And Farrakhan, by God’s grace, has pulled the cover off of that Satanic Jew and I’m here to say your time is up, your world is through.”
In October, Farrakhan tweeted that he wasn’t an anti-Semite, he was “anti-Termite.” The comment was met by widespread backlash, but Twitter refused to suspend his account or remove the tweet. Both conservative groups and liberal ones like the Southern Poverty Law Center have condemned the Nation of Islam for its racist and anti-Semitic rhetoric.
According to the Examiner, since 2008 Farrakhan and other Nation of Islam leaders have received at least $364,500 from both the U.S. Bureau of Prisons and the Department of Justice. The money was designated for religious services, guide services, study services, and “other related programs,” all led by the Nation of Islam.
One of these payments was for Nation of Islam leader Verbon Muhammad to “provide Nation of Islam religious services” for inmates. In 2017, Muhammad had said that the group did not “allow white people in our meetings, period.”
