Self hatred is universal

Reader comment on item: A Century of African-American Islam
in response to reader comment: Ignorance is bliss our dear Sheila

I study the bible and respect Christianity, but maybe Islam is not just an Arab religion? My question to you is to give some fact a fact that did Christianity exist during the Biblical time or even during the time of Jesus. Jesus who was a universal teacher to all nations never mentioned a new religion. I will not deny that Moors first introduce negro slavery to Europe. But you can't ignore the great prosperity and education people received. These people may have been held as slaves but never dehumanized and classified as chattel considered the same as a piece of wood. Define as the missing link. Still bearing the same names to this day as their slave masters. I am not having a religious debate, but speaking up for that which is my birthright, that which has made understand and respect all humanity, there are atrocities on both sides of this coin, but none as cruel to make a man believe he is black and deserves nothing but the right to die and go to heaven. When you speak of Africa it is a continent with many nation, Arab, Saracen and Moor were interchangeable terms. When you get to the real nitty gritty you will find the true answer. Let us not forget Lokman Aesop Imhotep,Antar, all of these great people are of Moorish descent.
