Fire! well said my Lord. the necessity for Black Supremacy, Black Power is a real one, as Marcus Garvey teaches, Race first. which means we have to cannonize our own martyers, saints, and God/King. it is only right that we see God throguh our own specticles, for if I am Black and we were made in the Image and Likeness of JAh then God in Conscious must be Black.panafrica said:Through groups like the Nation of Islam, many African Americans have come to believe that Islam was our original religion, and that Christianity was a slave religion. This explanation is convincing to those who do not have a knowledge of African history. However, for those that do have a knowledge of African history. It is known that Islam is not the original religion of the black man, it was introduced into Africa through slavery (the Trans-Saharan trade, which pre-dates the American slave trade by hundreds of years), and wars (Jihads). Furthermore, for those who know about African history, it is known that Christianity/Hebrews were in Africa for hundreds of years before it was in <a href="http://www.ntsearch.com/search.php?q=Europe&v=56">Europe</a> (Axum in Ethiopia was a Christian civilization since 300 AD, and it had ties to the religion since the Queen of Sheba meet Solomon).
Despite this small history lesson, the best way for you to understand why Islam is so popular among African Americans is to ask a Black Muslim Joyce (I'm not one). I have no problem with the Nation of Islam, in fact I support many of their economic & cultural beliefs. I just don't happen to believe their religious philosophy. I for one have religious tolerance, as I believe that religion wars/tribalism, etc....have been key factors in preventing Africans from uniting. Since this is slightly off topic, I'd like to move it elsewhere. However Joyce if you're interested, you might get a better understanding of this subject by reading a discussion between myself, Chukwuemeka, & DreamFunk in the African Stereotypes thread (on this forum).
let us keep this medetation alive, Did you ever come across the example Idid Amin set. It is teh greatest example aswell as Haile Selassie I's in Africa. in teh case of what and how to deal with these Arabs and Islam in Africa? (the program of Idi Amin is what we need. (note, who is not a demon but a God and King of Africa)
Nation of Islam, some good things about them, but they are leading out black brothers and sisters to the wrong place. and they know Islam is not African, don't let that free mason society fool you (not dirested to you)
