Whites engaged war against black America. That's a well-documented fact. Not even MLK was spared. FBI sent a letter to him inciting him to commit suicide. Yep, pigs can be that disgusting.

Try and be a black man in an Arab Muslim country or in Pakistan. Light skinned Muslims are extremely racist!

An Indian or Arab would much rather his daughter marry a white revert to Islam than a black one! In fact, In most cases he wouldn't allow his daughter to marry a black man, he'd kill her before that would happen.

They received too much Western cultural influences, like racism, during the colonialism.

The religion of Islam is insanity!

Peoples all over the world have many beautiful traditions in their worship of God that Muslims want to destroy.

The Muslim religion is a culture of death!
And Muslims are too insane to understand the many beautiful different cultures in the world!

Were you aware that muslims are still enslaving Africans today?

Slavery in Mauritania
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slavery_in_Mauri...

Slavery in Mauritania is an entrenched phenomenon the national government has repeatedly tried to abolish, banning the practice in 1905, 1981, and August 2007.[1][2] The descendants of black Africans abducted into slavery now live in Mauritania as "blacks" or haratin and partially still serve the "Moors" (Arabs), or bidhan, as slaves.

The number of slaves in the country was not known exactly, but it was estimated to be up to 600,000 men, women and children, or 20% of the population [3][4] of 3,069,000 people. Even though slavery is illegal, sociologist Kevin Bales believes that Mauritania is the country with the largest proportion of its population in slavery.[5]

Mauritanian organizations like Al'Hor &#1575;&#1604;&#15 81;&#1585; (translated as "the free"), In'itaq &#1573;&#1606;&#15 93;&#1578;&#1575;& #1602; (translated as "emancipation") and SOS Esclaves (meaning "SOS Slaves" in French) work against slavery.

A United Nations mission, headed by UN Special Rapporteur and mission leader Gulnara Shahinian, was in Mauritania in November 2009 to evaluate slavery practices in the country.[6] The mission's findings were presented to the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) in August 2010.

Slavery’s last stronghold

http://www.cnn.com/interactive/2012/03/world/...

Moulkheir Mint Yarba returned from a day of tending her master’s goats out on the Sahara Desert to find something unimaginable: Her baby girl, barely old enough to crawl, had been left outdoors to die.

The usually stoic mother — whose jet-black eyes and cardboard hands carry decades of sadness — wept when she saw her child’s lifeless face, eyes open and covered in ants, resting in the orange sands of the Mauritanian desert. The master who raped Moulkheir to produce the child wanted to punish his slave. He told her she would work faster without the child on her back.

Trying to pull herself together, Moulkheir asked if she could take a break to give her daughter a proper burial. Her master’s reply: Get back to work.

“Her soul is a dog’s soul,” she recalls him saying.

Later that day, at the cemetery,“We dug a shallow grave and buried her in her clothes, without washing her or giving her burial rites.”

“I only had my tears to console me,” she would later tell anti-slavery activists, according to a written testimony.“I cried a lot for my daughter and for the situation I was in. Instead of understanding, they ordered me to shut up. Otherwise, they would make things worse for me — so bad that I wouldn’t be able to endure it.”

Moulkheir told her story to CNN in December, when a reporter and videographer visited Mauritania — a vast, bone-dry nation on the western fringe of the Sahara — to document slavery in the place where the practice is arguably more common, more readily accepted and more intractable than anywhere else on Earth.

An estimated 10% to 20% of Mauritania’s 3.4 million people are enslaved — in “real slavery,” according to the United Nations’ special rapporteur on contemporary forms of slavery, Gulnara Shahinian. If that’s not unbelievable enough, consider that Mauritania was the last country in the world to abolish slavery. That happened in 1981, nearly 120 years after Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation in the United States. It wasn’t until five years ago, in 2007, that Mauritania passed a law that criminalized the act of owning another person. So far, only one case has been successfully prosecuted.

The Arabs were racist toward black Africans far before Africa was colonised by white people.

Look into history, even before Islam, and you will see black slaves being kept in Arabia and treated in horrific ways. That continued even after Islam and up to this day. Just look at how the Arabs treat their Phillipino and Bangladeshi "servants".

Muhammad may have said a few good things about how to treat slaves, but in practice, the Muslims have never, NEVER, NEVER followed that.

To the Arab, a black African is far less of a human being than themselves, even if that African is a Muslim. Philipinos, Bangladeshis, to them are just one step above a black African, and they still treat them like they're animals.

I have experienced this first hand, in Zimbabwe, Dubai, Saudi Arabia and Egypt.

If you look at some of the ahadith, you will see hatred from Arabs to black Africans. Muhammad tried to correct that attitude, but he failed. I know for a fact that the Arabs consider themselves white, and look down on dark skinned people. For example, to a Saudi Arab, a dark skinned "Arab" from Sudan cannoe marry into his family because the Sudanese Arabs are of mixed race (African and Arab)

Not really. Arabs really respected some black countries as Ethiopia and Nubia. Ethiopia - which had even conquered parts of Arabia peninsula - shelters the fourth most sacred city of Islam and their ruler, Ashama, friendly recieved some of the first Muslims refugees of Mecca. Muslims ever were grateful for such deeds.

Hence the panegyrics, as Ibn al-Djawzi (deceased in 1208),
in Tanwir Ghabash fi fadl al-al-sudan wa'l-habash (The light on the merits of blacks and Ethiopian), the work of Al-Suyuti (d. 1505), Raf sha'n al-hubshan (Improvement of the condition of the Ethiopians) and Muhammad ibn 'Abd al-Baki al-Bukhari (sixteenth century), Al-al-tiraz mankush Mahasin fi al-hubush (Embroidery Polychrome on the talents of the Ethiopians).

Al Jahiz only made such statements because of the aftermath of catastrophic Zanj Rebellion. Look at what he had said previously:

Medieval Sourcebook:
Abu Uthmân al-Jahiz:
From The Essays, c. 860 CE

On the Zanj

Everybody agrees that there is no people on earth in whom generosity is as universally well developed as the Zanj. These people have a natural talent for dancing to the rhythm of the tambourine, without needing to learn it. There are no better singers anywhere in the world, no people more polished and eloquent, and no people less given to insulting language. No other nation can surpass them in bodily strength and physical toughness. One of them will lift huge blocks and carry heavy loads that would be beyond the strength of most Bedouins or members of other races. They are courageous, energetic, and generous, which are the virtues of nobility, and also good-tempered and with little propensity to evil. They are always cheerful, smiling, and devoid of malice, which is a sign of noble character.

It has nothing to do with the religion, it's the people. That's like saying organization X is evil because some of it's members do evil things.

That's insanity...

99% of islamic's are not terrorists contrary to popular white racist belief.
