Blacks in North Africa and Middle East Often Face Virulent Racism from Arabs

As the West continues to train its focus on racism leveled at blacks by white people in the U.S. and recently in Europe and Israel, attention has increasingly been directed at the mistreatment of blacks by Arabs in Northern Africa and the Middle East.

For years, observers interested in probing a little more deeply in Iraqi society than the typical Western news stations found that the sizable black population in Iraq endures a form of virulent racism that African Americans haven’t seen in more than 50 years. Blacks there say they are regularly called “slave” and followed by groups of kids yelling epithets.

The Canadian academic Salim Mansur has claimed, “Blacks are viewed by Arabs as racially inferior, and Arab violence against blacks has a long, turbulent record.”

A piece broadcast on a radio station in the Netherlands took a deep look at the racism experienced by sub-Saharans Africans in Morocco, where they are viewed with such suspicion by the local Arabs that an Arab shopkeeper even warned the European reporter to stay away from the Africans because “they might eat you.”

The Africans are forced to live in a camp deep in the woods because they are unable to find jobs to make money—and when they do find work, they believe they are paid poorly because they are black. They are also frequently victimized by criminals who know the Africans can’t report it to authorities because they would face deportation.

“Arabs hate black people. And that is not from today. It is in their blood,” Aboubakr, a young man from Senegal who is hoping eventually to cross over into Europe, told the reporter for RNW (Radio Netherlands Worldwide). “Friends of mine were attacked with a knife. Bandits target us because they know we cannot go to the police, even if we are robbed and hurt. Having no papers, we will be caught instead. Blacks have no rights here.”

Aboubakr is also insulted that Moroccans “cannot believe many of us are Muslims too.” According to him, people are surprised when they see him kneeling for prayer. “They don’t think a black can be Muslim.”

Many Africans know that Arab states have not responded to atrocities in places like Darfur and Sudan because the people getting slaughtered are black Africans.

Black African guest workers in places like Egypt, Algeria and Libya have spoken about being publicly ridiculed and physically assaulted by Arabs. Egyptian writer Mona Eltahawy has written about watching a Sudanese girl being assaulted and tormented on the Cairo Metro, concluding, “We are racist people in Egypt and we are in deep denial.” She says the Arab world has ignored the suffering of Darfur because the victims are black. “We only pay attention when America and Israel behave badly.”

Because Europe has become more aggressive about patrolling ts borders specifically to keep the Africans in North Africa from slipping in, more migrants are stuck in places like Morocco, where they are forced to live in ghettos like the tent camp they created in the woods.

“Years ago, people had to get used to their presence, but now the relations are okay,”  a shopkeeper in a mountain village near the forest told Radio Netherlands. When a tall, black man walked into the shop and purchased rice, yoghurt and other food, the shopkeeper said, “The authorities advise me not to sell to them, but I sell to anyone. We’re all the same.”

Ironically, even as the Arab countries continue to mistreat the black Africans, they also find themselves on the receiving end of racist treatment. The United Arab Emirates national soccer team just got an apology from the Asian Football Confederation for referring to them as “sand monkeys”—on the AFC website!

The “AFC apologizes for an editorial mistake in which the UAE National Team was inadvertently referred to by an inaccurate nickname on the AFC’s official website,” the organization said in a statement.

It said the comment was due to an “error, which was mainly because of referral to a popular web-based encyclopaedia” and that it “was corrected immediately after it was noticed.” The AFC said it was sorry for “any hurt this might have caused to the UAE Football Association and UAE football fans.”

The day before, the UAE federation secretary-general Yusuf Abdullah said in a statement, “We express our strong resentment over the use of this bad description by the AFC website.”

“What happened is unacceptable and shows disrespect to others. It is proof of racist attitudes that are starting to surface,” he said, demanding “a quick official apology.”

The UAE football team is usually referred to as “Al-Abyad”, or the whites, based on the color of their strip. But a report on the AFC website about a “friendly” (match) between the UAE and Uzbekistan on Friday described the team of the desert Gulf state as “sand monkeys.”

  1. Absolutely disgusting, they complain about racism yet they are most racist themselves. The fact that they are in North Africa where the native/ indigenous people were pure black Africans, they need to watch themselves.

    • They built up africa dear rather you want to believe that or not….

      By the way, Tabitha, Africa was and is the home of hundreds of peoples, each with their own cultures, languages and religions.

      A Shawi Amazigh is not a Fulani is not a Masai is not a Bambara is not a Zulu is not a Tutsi is not Swahili is not Nubian. Get the picture?

      Africa's native people have all skin tones: From the blondest of blonde amongst some northern Imazighen to the blackest of black amongst the Bozo and everything in between.

      North-Africa has been mainly Arab for 1300 years now. The indegenous people of this region were Imazighen (Berber) and NOT black African.

      Only in the more southern parts of North-Africa the majority is black and most of them descend from West- and East- African enslaved black Africans.

      Nubians have been living for thousands of years in Southern Egypt, but in the rest of North-Africa the native people never were black African.

      Now, many Arabs are also Africans, wether you like it or not.

      If we as people of color and Africans should stop discriminating and opressing one another, our state would be so much better!

  2. They never did like negroids they were enslaving and slaughtering you things way before the atlantic slave trade and you are shocked? Of course they had the pawn islam converts of islam to capture you…Oh yea and they use to castrate the men and rape the women….Poor thangs don't even know their own history.

  3. what the fuck is this bullshit , Arab don't hate black people 1/3 of the arab are black , take Egypt as an example about 1/4 it's population is black and I never heard of any racism problems in it. this whole article is fiction.

      Mohamed Hamdy sadly enough, it is true yakhuya.

      I am a black, Carribean woman of West-African descent. I know many Moroccans and Arabs, was very active within those communities and have lived for four months in Cairo where I studies Arabic, which I speak fluently and I understand almost everything if Arabs talk.

      I myself have pointed out that many Arabs are black. But that's not the point. The point is that many Arabs are racist.

      I have been shouted at "ya iswid" quite a few times in Cairo.

      I have been called "nigger" (In Moroccan Arabic) by children in a mosque in Holland where I came to visit a lecture.

      I visited a Moroccan party in a community centre once, where a dark Moroccan guy said, with me standing right in front of him "why is this negro woman here?"

      I know for a fact that Moroccan girls who have a black boyfriend or husband are called "negro whores", are gossipped about and are slandered against.

      I also know that many fine Oriental dancers never made it to the top venues, because they were considered "too dark".

      I also know that most Egyptian women straighten their hair everyday, stay out of the sun and use very white powder and make-up, to seem "white".

      Of course, Islam forbids all this. Of course, every Muslim loves and reveres sayyidina Bilal (r.a.)

      Of course, we know that our beloved Prophet (saws) said: "All mankind is from Adam and Eve, an Arab has no superiority over a non-Arab nor a non-Arab has any superiority over an Arab; also a white has no superiority over a black nor a black has any superiority over a white – except by piety and good action."

      Then there is the Egyptian saying: "Darkness is the half of beauty."

      And I also remember guys singing "samra ya samra" and saying "ya samra ya hilwa" when I passed by.

      So the whole story isn't that black-and-white (like the word game? :p) and there is hope.

      But first we should fight racissm as an ideology, debunk the disgusting and colonial myths about all people of color, and reunite as Africans, Muslims, and, most importantly, fellow humans.

      We should become proud again of who and what we are and shoudln't try to bleach our skins, straighten our hair, stay out of the sun for the sole purpose to say white, color our hair blonde our wear blue lenses.

      We should start to appreciate our rich roots, cultures, music, dances, faiths, shapes etc. again.

      An dthe end, all people are brothers and sisters in humanity, no matter class, creed, gender, ethnicity, culture, race or sexual orientation.

      We all come from Allah and to Him we will return and He will ask us how we treated eachother.

      Salam/peace and love, blessings and light from Holland.

    I will say that I live in Saudi Arabia and I have never experienced racism from an Arab. Every incident of racism was from a white American. Which goes to show that travel does not necessarily make you more tolerant or open minded.

  5. Elizabeth C. O'Connor says:

    Even ultra-liberal, Politically Correct, pro-islamic PBS found this to be true and called attention to it during a program they made on the Haj a few years ago. The black, African muslims (from Kenya, IIRC) they followed during the filming had paid top dollar for their tour package to complete the Haj but were cheated when it came to housing and food. The African men were quite open about it being a matter of racism, and the Arab Saudis were largely unresponsive, IIRC. The fact is that mohammed was a virulent racist and bigot, and since he is considered the "ideal man", all other muslim men strive to imitate him. I've been in the Middle East and encountered black muslims who insisted they were not black, but "Arab". It wounded my heart each time I heard it, too.

      Elizabeth, your point of view that our Prophet saws was racist and Islam is racist, is not true.

      The holy Qur'an says: "O mankind, indeed We have created you from male and female and made you peoples and tribes that you may know one another. Indeed, the most noble of you in the sight of Allah is the most righteous of you. Indeed, Allah is Knowing and Acquainted." (49:13)

      "And among His signs is the creation of the heavens and the earth, and the diversity of your languages and colors. Surely in this are signs indeed for people who have knowledge." (30:22)

      "If Allah had so willed, He would have made you a single people, but (His plan is) to test you in what He hath given you: so strive as in a race in all virtues. The goal of you all is to Allah; it is He that will show you the truth of the matters in which ye dispute." (5:48)

      So diversity in languages, cultures, colours and creeds are viewed as a sign of God.

      Our Prophet said : "All mankind is from Adam and Eve, an Arab has no superiority over a non-Arab nor a non-Arab has any superiority over an Arab; also a white has no superiority over a black nor a black has any superiority over a white – except by piety and good action."

      He also freed sayyidina Bilal, who was an Ethiopian enslaved African. He was willing to be tortured for his faith, became the first muaddhin because of his beautiful and strong voice and amongst the most revered of the Prophets Companions.

      You should make a distinction between black Muslims and black Arabs. There are black Arabs : Blacks who speak, dress, eat, live, dance and die Arabic. They are just as much Arabic and Arabs as Arabs with Amazigh (Berber), Coptic Egyptian, Assyrian, Nubian and other ancestors. Arabs share a culture and language – simple and plain.

      It's not a racial or religious definition.

      There are also very much more black Muslims, who can be Afro-Carribean, African American, Ethiopian, Malian, Ghanaian, Senegalese, Zanzibari etc. They practise Islam but don't speak Arabic as a mother tongue and have their own cultures and languages and are absolutely NOT Arab.

      I don't contest or deny Arab racism. But the problem is not Islam, since Islam forbids racism. The problem is colonialism, ethnic bigotry, racial theories, the legacy of Arab slavery and so on.

    Arabs invented the cross-continental slave trade.

  7. Whoa- hold up a moment! Racism against 'Blacks' in Israel? I can only assume that you are talking about the roughly 80,000 African infiltrators (predominantly moslim and intensely hostile to Jews), who crossed illegally into Israel. These guys have taken over south Tel Aviv, terrorising the mainly elderly Morrocan, Yemenite, Ethiopian and eastern European residents there. The fact that the ultra liberal authorities and police have done nothing to alleviate the residents suffering is the true racism. It gets me intensely angry, having a Yemenite wife, half Morrocan grandson, clse Ethiopian friends as well as paler than me Russian friends, to hear time and again these absurb accusations which are only laid by Jew haters and baiters.

  10. Arabs have hated Africans for centuries and I don't think Arabs give a damn about being politically correct either.

      Of course, there is a lot of Arab racism, but it is utter nonsense and insulting to claim that Arabs have hated Africans for centuries, as if all Arabs are racists!

      Fyi many Arabs are Africans themselves and yes, many Arabs are also black. So get a grip and educate yourself before stating this crap.

      And if being anti-racist makes me or anyone else "politically correct", then I'm proud to be that!

      By the way, "politically correct" is a term mostly used by the far right and racists to defame people who have leftist sympathies or are anti-racist.

    To me as an Afro-Carribean convert of Western African descent, Arab and Amazigh racism is far too familiar. I knew many Moroccans and other Arabs and was deeply involved within those communities for years and also lived in Egypt for four months, studying Arabic.

    In Egypt "the whiter the better" is still the norm. On the other hand, there are many, many Egyptian songs praising the beauty of women and girls who are samra/asmar, which means "brown skinned.

    This is the term for black with a positive connotatian, whereas "iswid" (the literal word for black) has a very negative connotation.

    Even though I identify as black and are very proud of who and what I am, of course the term "black" is a social construct. I have the colour of milk chocolate and are considered black, whereas Indians from Madras who are darker then me aren't considered black.

    My grandmother who was half black and half white was black, whereas Moroccans with the exact same skin tone are considered "white".

    The sad and tragic thing is that many Arabs and Amazigh (Berbers) are Africans themselves and have all shades, from the whitest white to the blackest of black.

    And of course, there are also many black Arabs of West- and East African descent.

    Since Islam forbids racism and we are eventually all children of Mother Africa, let's end this horrible racism and love and accept eachother and ourselves the way we are – black, brown, yellow, reddish, white and everything in between. Inshallah. :-)

      By the way, I remember that there is a famous saying in Egypt: "Darkness is the half of beauty."

      And an Egyptian friend once told me: "There's no such thing as white Egyptians."

      So there are aspects of Arab culture that do acknowledge and appreciate darkness, blackness and brownness – think of the vivid Nubian culture in Egypt.

      And many of my Arab and Amazigh friends are just as anti-racist as I am. So there is hope. :-)

  19. And yet, a significant minority of the Masris are treating your neighbors, the Sudanis as your inferior and criminals. Even the Aswanis are being discriminated by the lighter complexed Masris. Fortunately, as a Somali I haven't really faced what the Sudanis has faced. It's a sad thing for a such a wonderful country such as Egypt where I have spent 4 glorious summers and more to come.

  21. rosalinda_wijks,

    You sound as though you have Stockholm Syndrome.

    You are the product of black Africans raped and enslaved by Arab Islamic jihadist warriors who forcibly raped and enslaved your ancestors and forced them to give honor and submission to their very cruel leader, who you now strangely revere, as a final betrayal of your ancestors.

  22. Theodora, you are certifiably NUTS! Where do you get your soundbites from, the Marxist Third-World Alliance? Israel has brought 100,000 Ethopians into Israel pro-actively. Jews are not "Caucasians" (from the Caucasus). Even the whitest Jew will have a "Jew-fro" when his hair grows long. Genetically, even Jews taken into Europe as slaves by Rome, after trying to kick out the Roman imperialists from their homeland, are still closer genetically to Arabs than to Europeans, recent studies have shown. Arabs have colonized Israel, as they have Babylon, Assyria, Barbary, Egypt, Lebanon, and many other places that USED to be great. And, no, sorry to burst your wacky bubble, Eritreans are not from Israel. No country has the obligation to take in everyone seeking a job. Nowhere in the world is that the case. Funny, then, that you have a dual-standard for Israel. Or, maybe just predictable. The Left has had a special place for hatred of Jews ever since Marx wrote "On Judaism" and ever since Stalin beat Trotsky, and tried to send the Jews to Siberia.

  23. Rosalinda, you really need to see this:

    Muslims killed 100 million black Africans, and converted half the rest. They enslaved 30 million. They are not your friends.

  24. Rosalinda, Christians or Jews are not Arabs. Christians or Jews living in now-Arab lands are the idigenous peoples there. There Muslims, speaking Arabic, invaded them from Arabia. Christian Arabs from Arabia were exterminated or converted. Same with Jews there. Outside Arabia, the Arabs are colonizers, imperialists. Christians in Egypt have their native tongue: Coptic–the original Egyptian language. Christians in Syria and Iraq have their original tongue, Aramaic, the language of Jesus, because the Jews were captive in Babylon 500 years before Jesus and took that language back to Judea / Israel with them. You need to learn ACTUAL history, not propaganda.

  25. Surjit Kaila

    Your name sounds Indian to me. People need to be well aware not only of the genocide of 100 million Africans by the Arabians / Muslims, but also of the genocide of 60-80 million Hindus by the Moghul Muslims:

  26. There was a time when the peoples of Africa were all black. That changed when the mohammedanian dogs invaded in the 7th century. Black people are the original Arabs, black people are the original Persians, black people are the original Israelites. It all went south when mammoth hunting, neanderthal fucking cave dwelling indo-aryans ventured into the "middle east" which was originally considered to be a part of Africa.. You neanderthal/homo-sapiens hybrids are nothing but savage dogs, and when YHWH returns, he will show no mercy upon you.

  27. Look at all this anti-whitism. In the 60's, anti-whites forced ALL and ONLY white countries to bring in millions of non-whites. Then anti-whites forced ALL and ONLY white people to “integrate” or face penalties for being “naziswhowantokill6millionjews.” Now anti-whites are praising and counting down the days till ALL and ONLY white children are minorities and extinct EVERYWHERE. That makes it genocide. “Anti-racist” is a codeword for anti-white. /watch?v=lKDeyuM0-Og

The Conquered and oppressed wooly haired individuals and Nations get a "descriptive" title such as Black or Slave. While the rest of the World with Straight Hair (LIGHT OR DARK) is given a Family name and related to their HOMELANDS. The Minds of the straight haired type fear, dislike, hate, abhor, detest, oppress, enslave, kill, rape, robe and exterminate at will ANY group of wooly hair "people" they find.

  58. Theodora Anagor, if you take away the magic of the Old Testament and treat it as a fairly accurate record of history, as has been evidenced by archiological proofs, then you need merely to read of King David's accounts of addressing his people the Israelites. He stated, upon looking out over the multitude, that it was as if looking out over a Red Sea. He was of course, referring to the predominantly fair haired and bronzed people of Israeli society then.
    Equally so were the Egyptians, an entirely different race from the Berber africans occupying Egypt today. The people of Lebanon, similarly were Phoenicians and of a Southern European appearance.
    True, after the last Roman inspired exile, many Israelis found themselves dispersed to pagan arab lands and to Southern Europe, but historical accounts by numerous travelers to this part of the world, wrote of the thriving Jewish communities in existance. Equally true, is that many Jews dispersed in Europe, chose to return home along with the one million or so Jews who had been subjected to pogroms in now moslim arab lands.

  59. L. Dark matter I believe is white racist poseur, merely acting out the part as an agente provocateur. His written word is just to street talk to be true, even to the spelling and pronunciation, quite apart from his cursing. I, as one of Israel's bronzed Jews, together with the majority of our black, tanned, or white Jews find him as demeaning as the caricatures of the one time s

  60. ….one time slaves supposedly crying, "oh my Lordy masser

  61. Trans-Atlantic slave trade was way worse than the arab slave trade, you need get this fact straight, the trans-atlantic slave trade enforced an idea that only blacks are inferior so they can be used as property but any other race thats different than being black, they'll still be inferior to the white man but they will not be considered to be as low as a black man and it will be illegitimate to enslave them unless they were black. That was the white man vision when it came to slavery

    Now historically speaking all races bought and sold slaves, but throughout history all race were targeted by slavery, but when the trans-slave trade came into play, it made it specific to enslave only black people because they were considered sub-human and lesser than the white man.

    Arabs were involved in the slave trade but they enslaved all kinds of people because slavery was open business, but when the white people came in, they specifically targeted black people and the whole world followed their route and from this horrible decision a lot of black people are singled out wherever you go because of the history that formed against them during the slave trade in North and south america

See the words of Herodotus and other ancient historians who described the Egyptians and Ethiopians as being black skinned and wooly-haired in appearance. You're nothing more than another white supremacist attempting to steal OUR history as you've been doing for hundreds of years.

  63. Ibrahimi Qurani says:

    I think it needs to be stated that non-black Arabs are behaving virulently racist towards other black Arabs and non-Arab black African immigrants. White Supremacy in the Arab world is real. But don't try to say that Arabs are only and have only been white. Arabs are originally black and many still are. The origins of this racism is not Islam, nor is it inherent to Arabs. It comes principally from the anti-black Eurocentric sentiment that has been spread throughout the world for the past 5 centuries. It finally took root in the Arab world in the past 2 centuries. Secondly, there have been rashed of this in every place that mainly Greco-Romans and Persians had roots in the Arab world, as they despised the black Arabs, the black Egyptians and the black North Africans who competed with them and often opposed their ancient empires.

  64. Becky Covington says:

    Anunnaki Nichelle Ferguson Not all Jews were black ethiopians. Very narrow view.

  65. Becky Covington says:

    Shawanda Marie Bonner Miss Israel is black. She does admit there is racism. But get a clue. there is racism in EVERY culture, and the Jewish religion does not allow them to hate, anymore than real Christ followers hate people.

  66. Edward Oxenford says:

    Melissa, that begs the question, "What is White?"

    I think the average White person would NOT consider an Arab to be White. Hell, some Western Europeans don't even consider Mediterranean peoples to be in the club …

  67. Edward Oxenford says:

    Mohammad referred to Blacks as "raisin heads" and "pug-nosed slaves" …

  68. Elaine Lane you can't talk like that about north african history, as if you studied the whole thing in college, when actually you really seem to know nothing about it !!

    Rosalinda was right in fact, north africa was NOT arab, indigen living there were not black, they're called imazighen ( or berber ), and they inslaved noone at all !!

    When arabs invaded the north african territories, then, came the ottomans ( actual Turkey ), THEY enslaved black africans from sub sahara, they enslaved christian europeans from spain and portugal, and jews !!

    Nowadays north africa is a mixture of cultures and ethincities, and as in many countries, racism exists, it's a true fact sadly, BUT as in those countries, not all of us are racist …

    if anyone wants to argue on the north african history, and people who were there first, just please go read some books focusing on this topic, thing that I and apparently, Rosalinda, did

  69. rosalinda_wijks North Africa has been black before foreign invasion, I need to study more into it more but I have read from reliable sources that the original Arabs were black, of dark skin and North Africa has definitely been black its not about who likes it or not its a fact the Modern days "Arabs" north Africa are not African fact, their middle eastern.

  70. Tabitha Dorcas that's where you are wrong, starting from the fact that "north africa" is arab in majority, I'm living there, and I can tell you that it's a little bit more complicated than what it seems, there is still a kind of identity conflict, we are talking about centuries before the arab invasion, people of north africa "originally" is not arab, and even during, and after the arab invasion, it is still not "arab", the first language spoken is arabic ok, but there's another culture, and another language, proper to that people "imazighen/berbe" that still coexists with the arab culture !

    stating that north africa is or has been arab, is actually a wrong start

    historians themselves have many theories on the subject ( origin of north african berber people ( not the arabs ) ), if you're interested on the topic, try to check out some books about "history of bereber/imazighen", at least history of north africa BEFORE the arab/islam invasion

  71. Natsu Page Yes the Berber were certainly native in North Africa

  72. F*** all Middle Easterners. They are the most vile and untrustworthy people on the planet. Whether they be Jews, Arabs, Assyrians, Kurds or whatever. The world would be better off if they stop peddling their vile religions.

  73. Mike Askme says:

    @Edward Oxenford, not even true that is a myth, proof can be found here.

    NEGASH—In 615, when the Prophet Mohammed was attacked by his own people, he had to flee Mecca. His sermons were threatening the power of the Quraysh, so the tribe wanted him, his family, and his followers killed. Mohammed fled to the Arabian town of Yathrib, 210 miles from Mecca. Today, the town is known as Medina, the Prophet's city.

    Mohammed also sent a small number of his devotees, including his daughter Rukiya, to Ethiopia. He asked the Christian king of Abyssinia, as it was then known, to keep his family safe. He trusted the African king because the two men, like the Jews before them, shared a belief in one god. Mohammed hoped this tie would prove more powerful than those of blood or nation. It did. When these first Muslims in Africa were brought before the king of Abyssinia to explain their newfound faith, the expedition's leader told the king a story from the Quran. It was the story of a virgin named Mary giving birth to a baby boy named Jesus. The Christian ruler allowed the Muslims to stay in his kingdom.

    So stop spreading your Erocentric lies, but even though what you said is lie, it does not excuse these Arabs for being racist to dark skinned people, seeing how it was dark skinned people that saves their religion.

  74. Mike Askme says:

    @Son6ya Savoy, are you really this ignorant or are you trying to rewrite Americans awful history towards people of color.

  75. Mike Askme says:

    @Kim Lim the only person that needs to get his history straighten out is you. Specifically this. according to the prophet Mohamad no Muslim may enslave another Muslim. Where as Christainity stated this, no Christain my enslave another Christain unless he is a black Christain. Facts go look it up.

  76. Mike Askme says:

    @Melissa Tulin you are exactly right, that is why as a black man, i refuse to believe in any middle east religion all three are BULL CRap

  77. Edward Oxenford says:

    Erocentric …

    Sounds good Common Core Superstar …

  78. Jonathan Thompsen says:

    This is nothing new. Historically the arabs have been fighting for control over black africans since day one when they decided to militarily invade africa. Look at what islam did to black people- muslims in nigeria are ravagina and kidnapping and destroying things all around. Central african republic in ruins, etc. the list goes on. Come to Jesus Christ, he is the one true God and he is alive and all powerful, unlike muhammad who is dead and worthless.

  79. and Arabs are the least people with access to the internet to respond to ignorant like you, I feel really sorry for people like you because obviously you really believe that you are ethically right as westerns and Arabs are just barbaric who enslave people. for God sake stop this childish way of arguing against Arabs and spread lies that they enslave Black. The prophet Muhammad (pbuh) first muazin was black so this a clear evidence of how Islam doesn't distinguish between any race or color. even in Saudi Arabic that is Known for human rights violations respect black more than the double standards Americans and Europeans. Even the Sheikh that prays in Mecca is Black which is a religiously prestigious position. SO FUCK YOU WHITE race who invented slavery against Black and now you are trying to clear yourself away from it by blaming other races this show just how much low subhuman you are.

  80. Sofie Moh'd says:

    Edward Oxenford One of Mohammed's (pbuh)favourite, best muslim follower who was chosen to say the first call of prayer was BILAL…Bilal was a black person… Islam does not have room for racism, ARABS do..they are a RACE… they do not represent Islam… This is a verse from the holy Quraan :

    Mankind! We created you from a male and female, and made you into peoples and tribes so that you might come to know each other. The noblest among you in God's sight is that one of you who best performs his duty. God is All-Knowing, All-Aware. (The Qur'an , 49:13).

  81. Sofie Moh'd says:

    Melissa Tulin this whole post is about ARABs being racists not Islam being racist hahahah I donno why everyone is like so eager to jump on islam the moment they get a chance! Yes mohamed was an Arab muslim prophet…Adam was a black prophet of islam..Mohamed taught whate adam taught… mohamed's best follower was BILAL..Bilal was a black person… this is what Allah says in the holy quraan, its what muslims follow.

    Mankind! We created you from a male and female, and made you into peoples and tribes so that you might come to know each other. The noblest among you in God's sight is that one of you who best performs his duty. God is All-Knowing, All-Aware. (The Qur'an , 49:13).

  82. No surprise. Mohammed was a slave trader himself, owning and killing many black slaves. He even traded 2 black slaves for one Arab slave because he thought of blacks as inferior. No wonder then that he called then 'rascals' and 'raisin heads'. Interestingly, the koran describes Mohammed, the founder of islam, as white. Arabs were far bigger slave traders than whites: they founded blacks up in Africa, castrated them, and sold them to the Arab world. The Saudis, the guardians of the two mist holy islamic sites, wanted them to be castrated so that the inferior blacks would not have offspring in their arab country. Most if the African-Americans from today are descendants of slaves that were caught be arab muslims and then sold to American slave traders. But you never hear that part of the story.
    Also, the arab word for 'black' and slave is the same: 'adib'. The koran calls arab the language of allah, the same language the koran was written in.
    It is thus hard to understand why a black person wants to follow a religion that makes them slaves and inferior to others. Any sane black person should leave islam.

  83. You have no clue. How can a muslim not be a racist if mohammed himself, the 'perfect' role model of all muslims (according to the koran), looked at blacks as 'rasin heads' and 'rascals', enslaving and killing them, trading two blacks for one arab because the latter one is worth more? A 'real true muslim' is more racist than a non-muslim and nothing will ever change that. They just come to your neighborhood because they want your money, so basically pushing an African American store owner out. They have always used you and always will, that is why in their language, the word for slave and black is the same: abid. What do you think does that say about their attitude and the attitude of islam towards blacks?
    Black people should leave islam, tell their black friends to deconvert, educate others, and kick muslims out of their neighborhoods because in islam, they will always be worth less.

  84. Ibrahimi and Mike, your are both desperate and wrong, so you do what islam tells you to do to deceive non-muslims: lie. How can muslim racism be due to '5 centuries of European racism' if the koran, which was put together in the 6th century, was already full of racism against blacks and Jews, and mohammed being a bigoted, racist slave trader? And how do you ecplain the fact that the arab eord for slavery and black is the same: adib? How digusting is that?
    Not surprisingly, it is easy to proof you wrong:

  86. Hussam BE No, that is not true. Transatlantic slave traders bought their slaves from arabs who had an almost worldwide distribution network for slaves, reaching all the way to India. You muslim apologetics should grow a spine and face the truth: Mohammed was a slave trader:

  87. rosalinda_wijks What a load of BS. Read my quotes from the hadith and tabari above and you will see mohammed was a racist, bigoted slave trader.
