To Joe: Your racism is part of the problem

Reader comment on item: King of Pop Michael Jackson and Black Converts to Islam
in response to reader comment: The Convergence of the Nation of Islam & the Takfir Mentality

Submitted by Richard Lion heart (United States), Mar 8, 2006 at 01:02

your diatriabe against blacks in the U.S is typical of the type of racism that make it possible for militant Islam to thrive. Michael Jakson is a fallen icon. You talk about him as if his a spokesperson for African-Americans. Michael Jakson was never a Christian, so him converting to islam holds no symbolic value to blacks. The guy is sick, I only feel sorry for his kids.

The Nation of Islam is to blacks what the KKK is to whites. Although to a lesser extent, after all they never lynch anyone. Young blacks in Jail are attracted to Islam as much as young whites are attracted to neo-nazi skin heads. African-Americans never committed any terrorist acts againts this country, while a neo-nazi Timothy McVeigh blew up a federal building to make a point. This country committed a terrorist act againts Blacks by enslaving them for centuries. The African-American tactic to fight injustice is non violence not terrorism. So when you try to link Blacks with terrorism it's nothing but racism.

Rap when first came out, was a mean for blacks to speak against injustice and racial inequality.
But when big record companies which are not owned by blacks got into the rap game, that's when rap lost its essence and fell victim to capitatism. In other words make money no matter what. But there are still rappers who use the craft as a tool to combat injustice. Among them I can name Kanye West, Wyclef Jean and many others. You accuse blacks of taking white, hispanic and asian women hostage and as sex slaves. your racism and hatred stinks I'm telling you. This is the same old racist falacy of the Black male desiring white women. ...
The great majority of Blacks are Christians not muslims. Right now blacks are dying fighting terroristS in Irak and Afganistan. I'm sure they would not appreciate the comments you made.... Militant Islam is a world wide problem. Right now Nigerian Christians are fighting them. And In keeping with the tradition of the great Martin Lutherking, I will continue to fight militan islam ...
