PRESS RELEASE: November 18, 2015                                     
Media Contact: Saladin Allah


To whom it may concern:

My name is Saladin Allah, a Five Percenter Journalist, Author and Youth Advocate writing in response to the recent vandalism at The French-American International School in San Francisco. As this latest example of American “Francophobia” has been wrongly attributed to the Five Percenters and our implied association with ISIS, I wanted to take a moment to clarify who we are. As one of our many thought leaders, I have been referenced as a Five Percenter subject matter expert and program consultant for the History Channel series Gangland to clarify our supposed association with the Hidden Valley Kings in North Carolina, and I was globally cited to clarify if Jay Z was an active member of the Five Percenters and elaborate on the meaning of the Five Percenter Medallion [Emblem] he has publically worn. I’ve written over 250 articles, published 14 books and have successfully worked as a youth advocate and community organizer for the last twenty years creating various projects, programs and initiatives geared towards the positive growth and development of families and communities.

One of the commonly held misconceptions is that the Five Percenters are Muslim [religious], which we are not. Our group, which consists of people of color and white members, are culturally based and more concerned with self-development, youth advocacy and community outreach than we are vandalizing, desecrating or ridiculing others for their beliefs or political ideologies. No mature, upstanding member of the Five Percenters that subscribes to our principles and values would do this. In fact, we are anti-crime and it’s a matter of historical record that following the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, it was the Five Percenters who walked the streets of Harlem with Mayor Lindsey of New York in order to help stop the violence, looting and restore peace. Our symbol, the Universal Flag, represents the sun, moon and star: our universal family. Family consists of man, woman and child and a unified human family is the vital building block of any nation of people.

Thank you for your consideration and giving me the opportunity to clarify this. If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact me at:
