Slavery was going on long before the arabs sold blacks into slavery, then may I say I didn't accept Islam for no arabs but as the religion I believe God would accept as His way of life. But I asked you who is this person who has the power to say I'm sorry or I apologized for the wrongs of my people, now let's move on? I would go into scripture about slavery with you but I don't believe you have the necessary knowledge to go there, so I'll leave that alone.

I have never said anything about me being better or high a mighty but I do know as the Bible say: "He who practice righteousness is righteous" and I know I am righteous. I will not try to apolozies for nothing my people did wrong in the past, I can only feel sorry that the wrong they did was wrong but they will have to answer to a power much higher than me and I pray they get what they deserve and earned. And because I am a righteous person I pray I never do to other in evil what was done in the past evils.

Let me clear something up with you, if I sell you a gun and you go out and kill someone with that gun then the sin is on you for once you buy the gun you are responsible for the sins you commit with it and the sins you commit you can't blame on me. So the arabs will have to answer for their wrongs of selling slaves and the wrong they did doing it whether they were muslim or not (all arabs are not muslims). And all the blacks who took part in the slave trade with have to answer for their sins and all whites who took part will have to pay for their sins also.

There is a saying that goes like this: "An apple does not fall far from the tree" so for some people they are as wicked as or more wicked than their ancestors, thats why sin exist today because our ancestors are 'us' althought I am my father, but his sins are his and mine are mine. So if my father was a wicked man and I changed from the wrongs he did, and I lived and did righteousness then I have changed that path of evil he lived to a righteous path. And I by my righteousness hope that my children follow the right path they see me live and do the same. So when you point your fingers as I said about the Pope, remember there are three fingers pointing back at you.
