The election of President Barack Obama was not enough to allow real racial justice to come about in the United States, Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan said Friday, insisting that the entire American system "has to be taken down."

“When you vote a black man in office thinking he is your savior, within a short while he will show you ‘I’ll do the best I can but that is very little,'” the controversial Farrakhan said at a Justice or Else rally in Cleveland, reports Breitbart News.

The event was held in preparation for the "10.10.15" march set in Washington on Oct. 10 to commemorate the 20th anniversary of The Million Man March.

"How many generations more are we going to sit around saying ‘things are getting a little better now. The Lord done bless us. We has a black president,'" Farrakhan said during a two-hour address. "Over a white corporation that he probably don’t own no stock in. He has to maneuver the country for the stock broker, for the real power.”

He also discussed a 2012 shooting case in Cleveland, in which 13 police fired 137 rounds into a car after a 25-minute high-speed car chase, killing Melissa Williams and driver Timothy Russell.

“No man has the right to take your life and then deny you due process for the address of your grievances ," Farrakhan said. "This is a system that has to be taken down in order for the people, black, brown, red yellow and white to experience what God wants every human being to experience. This system can’t bring it. It’s just not constructed that way."
