Why would an African-American convert to islam ?

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

The so called "prophet" mohammed owned black slaves. Why would any one especially someone of African decent choose a religion founded by such a hateful sinner like mohammed.

It might be ok if, and only if islam had changed to being nice. Sadly that is not the case, one only need look at Sudan. In that country, muslims are killing African Christians and taking as slaves the ones they don't kill. These Black Christians usually then because victims of rape by the muslims.

So why are some African-Americans changing to islam ? Is it time for Christian churches especially Black Christian churches to speak up about islam ? To tell the members of their church and the public the truth about islam.
