Blacks and Islam

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

Submitted by Susan Walker (United States), Mar 12, 2006 at 22:47

If blacks only knew the disdainful regard Middle Eastern Muslims have for dark skinned peoples---both Infidels and even other Muslims---they would flee from Islam without a backward glance. How is it they are not aware of Sudanese enslavement by Muslims? Or do they imagine that only Infidels (worthy of death anyway) end up as Muslim chattel??

If that were not enough to boggle the mind, the blatantly second class status of women in any Islamic culture should repulse the conscience of every black, given how hard they or their parents' generation fought for civil rights.

Louis Faraqhan is no Martin Luther King.....
