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.
