Happy Black History Month! Instead of me trying to educate you all, I'll just let you educate yourselves. My goal this month is to bring my gathered information and various sources to you. That way you can learn and take from it what you need. If you'd like to refute my information with your own, feel free to do so. We can also swap stories, have discussions, and enjoy learning from one another because that’s how life should be. So let's begin...
There are a lot of Black Muslims on social media insulting Black Christians. They say things like, "You're only Christian because your slave masters forced you to be," and, "If our people were not forced to be slaves, would you still be a Christian today?" I have a question for you all: If our people were not enslaved (in Africa) would you still be Muslim? Again this is only addressed to the Black Muslims who bash Christians. I'm glad that you guys are bringing up things that need to be discussed but you’re doing it in a negative light.
Isn’t it easy to point a finger at another when you don’t know the history of your own religion?
Let me be clear, I do not have a religion nor do plan on joining one. I am not writing this in hopes of changing someone’s mind about their beliefs. I am writing this to shed light on the naïve people that are clearly unaware of their history.
It's a beautiful thing when someone finds a religion they can resonate with. As long as everyone finds God in their own way, we should get along perfectly. There should be no room for judgement.
Here are the sources I promised. Don’t forget to share your additional research, comments, and questions!
