Black Muslims

The authorities charged two men on Thursday with felony hate crimes, vandalism and false imprisonment in connection with attacks last week on two liquor stores owned by Muslims of Arab descent.

One of the men, Yusuf Bey IV, 19, is the son of a prominent black Muslim leader who founded Your Black Muslim Bakery Inc., a company that operates a bakery and several other Oakland businesses.

Mr. Bey’s father, Yusuf Bey, who died two years ago, established an Islamic sect similar to but not affiliated with the Nation of Islam, the organization led by Louis Farrakhan.
