Yakub is the name of the evil Black scientist who, according to the Nation of Islam, allegedly created the white race thousands of years ago through a "grafting" process. In his influential 1965 book, "The Message to the Blackman in America," NOI leader Elijah Muhammad explained that Yakub was "born to make trouble, break peace, kill and destroy his own people with a made enemy to the black nation." Reiterating the NOI"s belief in the existence of Yakub during a 2020 speech, NOI leader Louis Farrakhan commented that "when the white man was made, his father was a liar, his father was a murderer, so they are born with lie and murder in their nature."
