The blacks have been discriminated by the white man in America and it cannot be denied that Christianity condoned it.

The Blacks and Islam

George Washington led the war of Independence and the United States became a free country in 1776. America was virgin land and the white settlers opened up the country with plantations and factories. Thus there was a need for cheap labor. To get this cheap labor, a nefarious scheme to abduct and kidnap black men was commissioned. These Blacks were kidnapped from the African continent and brought to America to work on the plantations and estates. There status was that of slaves. it should not be forgotten that once a black became a slave he remained a slave till his death.

The masters of these slaves were all white men who regularly went to Church and were good Christians. The priests who gave sermons from the pulpits, found nothing wrong in this slavery of the black man. One wonders whether they were men of God ? The civil war brought no respite and this slavery continued in the deep south. But over a period of time with the advent of 2 world wars a slackening of the hold on the Blacks was evident and a civil rights movement gathered steam as the Black man bid for his rights.

The transition was not easy and white supremacy organizations like the KKK appeared who killed blacks without compunction. The sad part is that these men all were good Christians and yet the black man was discriminated against. The Christian religion has a lot to answer for the state of the Black man in America for nearly 200 years or more.

There has been a back lash and the Blacks are converting to Islam.This conversion is a failure of the christian religion which is not a white mans preserve, as it has happened in America

Nice, succint and to the point. We are not out of the woods yet here in America. There are still many racist elements in our society.

As I understand it many of the blacks that were brought to the USA as slaves were actually slaves in Africa already.
None the less the racism is wrong, I lived in Michigan and had many "black" friends.
