    A couple of sisters speak on the roles of women within the N.O.I. and also clear up some common misconceptions.

    i did also...........i think it's a commonly held belief that women within the nation are somehow oppressed......it's interesting to see their perspective and how they find power within their roles............

    Thanks as I enjoyed all three videos. Please know that its common for "us" to relate negatively to many different religious sects and make unfounded negative generalizations.

    How many times do we see a person claiming to be islam, christian or whatever, do something negative and we want to condeme the entire organization because of that individuals behavior ??

    In my opinion, brother. Religion places the theory and based ideology and method of................ But spirituality is personal and individually adhered and exercise.

    I think we will do ourselves a favor by not passing judgement on any, and to understand, comprehend and deeply respect all.

    Europeans always had an habit of taking, using, divide, conquer and kill. I think we adopted that frame of mind conciously or subconciously, unfortuantely. We lose out in my opinion because even tho i'm not islam. I've learned a lot from the faith. As I have with many.

    Again , wonderful videos

    Peace
