sad that American Black revolutionaries, in an effort to return t their roots and divest themselves of the overlay of the slave master's religion, have urned to Islam. While it is true that Islamic and Jewish dogmas both accept the converted as a part of the people, the evangelims of Islam like that of of the Christians has committed a kind of cultural geneocide., literally wiping out millenia of culture amongst the prliterate people its has converted. All three Abrahamic faiths also share a terrible elitism, rejecting all gods but their deity .. perhaps a shared deity .. as being of chaos and the devil.
For those who want a feel for the evils of evangelism, I recommend thw wonderful book, "Arrow of God" by Chinua Achebe.
