Reader comment on item: King of Pop Michael Jackson and Black Converts to Islam

Submitted by ahmad zafire (United States), Mar 7, 2006 at 23:57

not to downplay any other muslims. but the nation of islam is not the true islamic way. see its just not islam...when people are in prison they have no one but themselves and God. my uncle was locked up and got very religious into the bible and being saved. but after his release he returned back to the same thing.

blacks in america used islam to draw blacks together during those hard times in the united states. religion is a very powerful force that can draw people from all walks of life nevermind if it judaism,christanity,or islam. now my question is why should we care if people that are corrupted and find religion thats make them become a part of a civil and humane society. if they really mean it....but the nation to me is more like the kkk as a black person i do understand the cause. but using God just for blacks i dont think so. but america brought that on itself. coming from its history.
Submitting....
