Mustapha Farrakhan has a very famous father and a notable son, but apart from one story from 2013 about collecting a paycheck despite not working, there are no other reliable sources about him. If that's the only reliable source, which it is, there are BLP concerns. Even with that one source, the subject still fails the GNG due to a lack of SIGCOV in reliable sources. schetm (talk) 21:44, 12 September 2019 (UTC)

  • Merge with Louis Farrakhan. Agree with nom that most coverage in reliable sources revolves around the police controversy with no follow-up reporting, as in WP:BLP1E. Just being the son and likely successor of Louis Farrakhan is not enough per WP:INVALIDBIO and WP:CRYSTAL, so I don't see the justification for a standalone article at this point in time.

  • Keep UPI, AP, and the Chicago papers were all over this guy on corruption charges because he had a job at the police department where he did nothing except escort Daddy around town in police cruiser. The story in the Chicago Tribune was a finalist for a Pulitzer.Strandvue (talk) 12:22, 13 September 2019 (UTC)
Doing nothing except escort Daddy under color of an official police position and having a flash of reporting about it doesn't qualify someone to have an encyclopedia article written about them. The Pulitzer article was not about Farrakhan specifically but Harvey police corruption in general. StonyBrook (talk) 22:00, 13 September 2019 (UTC)
  • Multiple sources describe Mustapha as likely successor to Dad, Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, which probably explains why the police "job" was covered nationwide and revisited in the article about police corruption that was short listed for a Pulitzer. Oh, and your statement that there was "one mention" is problematic because there were multiple stories in media nationwide in addition to coverage in all of the Chicago media. Also, while the Pulitzer story was not only about Farrakhan, it certainly went after Farrakhan. Strandvue (talk) 01:07, 15 September 2019 (UTC)
  • Delete the corruption central to this person having a postion on the police department is worth more coverage, but lacks it. There are also connections between his Fruit of Islam organization and the Women's March and many of its leaders that are truly outrageous to many Jewish women, but he has not gotten actual coverage in that controversy, so it does not actually add to his notability.John Pack Lambert (talk) 07:03, 15 September 2019 (UTC)
  • Delete - article is very negative in tone WP:BLPBALANCE and based on allegations WP:SUSPECT - even if the allegations are true, there doesn't seem to be anything to establish notability per WP:ANYBIO - Epinoia (talk) 16:37, 19 September 2019 (UTC)
  • Delete per the above two comments.  — Amakuru (talk) 12:36, 20 September 2019 (UTC)
