On June 17, 1977, the cover of the Bilalian News announced, "Warith Deen Muhammad leads movement to destroy allracial images of god!" The movement was popularized as CRAID, or the Committee for the Removal of All Images That Attempt to Portray the Divine. In the late 1970s and early 1980s, CRAID represented the most important work of God in America for black Muslims. The emphasis on monotheism and the removal of images of God did support the notion. CRAID, however, did more than link black Muslims to idealized Islamic history and theology. Muhammad tempered the language in his promotion of CRAID, but it was no less pointed. He no longer employed language of the white Jesus as Satan. Rather, Muhammad focused on the psychological and social effects of racial images. W. D. Muhammad also advised members of the Nation of Islamto recognize the white Jesus as Satan.
