I don't see the meaning of what you just said , you said that you can't understand how black people can worship a white blue eyed person ? so you're saying that black people should worship a black man and white people should worship a white man? that's the most stupid thing I have ever heard. Furthermore I urge you to go get educated : Jesus Christ wasn't actually a white blue eyed man, this representation of Christ Is meant to show how pure he is, and the definition of the word pure differs from person to person, a white artist would see white color and blue eyes as implying purity whereas a black man might draw jesus as a black handsome man which Is actually happening because many black communities in the US or Africa for example have a black representation for jesus Christ.

And all this doesn't make a difference because the important thing is that they are worshiping the person represented by the picture not the picture itself so a little bit of imagination about how Christ looks like is very nice and giving such nice looks to Christ is actually like praising him in a way.

From what you just said I guess you have a problem with white/blond and blue eyed persons I guess it's because you're western phobic which is the case of many like yourself, so plz go get some therapy.

Plus you said that whites enslaved blacks for centuries, ok so ? does the word WHITE mean CHRISTIAN ? I think I need to tell you that during the Islamic caliphate there were still slaves, Caliphs had slaves as guards and as members of the army, they had women slaves for sex as part of the HAREM. During the Abassid era the mother of the Caliph AL MA'MOUN (the son of Harun al Rachid) was actually a Persian slave. So even the great Caliph Harun al Rachid that u're all proud of, had slaves!!! During the Abassids there was a big slave revolt "thawrat al zunj" because of the very bad conditions of the slaves in Iraq.

Christ preached equality among men and Christianity is all about equality and I Defy you to say and prove otherwise, so if Christians enslaved black men. It wasn't because their religion told them to do so, it was because they were corrupt with twisted minds. And the same can be said about muslims who enslaved blacks.

Further more by reading ur posting one might get the impression that the prophet mohammed is black that's why black people should follow him. well he might not be blond or blue eyed but from what I know I don't think the prophet was exactly Denzel Washington.

Finally you said that BILLIONS of black people became muslim, ummmm I don't know where u live, but I feel it is necessary to remind you that the world population is 6.5 billions and muslims are around 1.1 billion so even if all muslims were black there still wouldn't be billions of black converts.

Peace !!
