    I KNEW ABOUT CHRIST FOR A WHILE NOW BUT I NEVER KNEW WHO I WAS OR HOW I FIT INTO HIS WORLD... AND ALTHOUGH I HAD BEEN RAISED A CHRISTIAN BAPTIST, CHURCH NEVER TOLD ME WHO I OR THE ROOM FULL OF "BLACKS" WERE....NOT JUST ME OR YOU BUT THE WHOLE SO CALL BLACK COMMUNITY WHO HAD ZERO KNOWLDGE OF SELF, NO LANGUAGE TO CALL OUR OWN, NO MEMORY OF OUR LAND..I WANTED TO KNOW WHO THIS BLANK SLATE PPL WHO BEGGED TO BE IDENTIFIED HAS AMERICAN EUROPEANS SOMEWHERE FROM AFRICA WERE...AND ALL THO WE TRY OUR HARDEST TO SEPARATE FROM EACH OTHER NOW AND TRY TO SETTLE OUR PAST LIVES IN DIFFERENT PARTS OF AFRICA I'M SAD TO SAY BUT WE ARE CONNECTED IN MORE WAYS THAN ONE TO EACH OTHER...WE WERE AND ARE STILL NOW IN THE SAME BOAT LOOKING FOR OUR ROOTS THAT WERE STRIPPED SO Y NOW SEPARATE..WE ALL CAME HERE TOGETHER THEY USED US NOW THEY MAKE US LIVE SEPARATE CONFUSED LIVES...DUE TO BLOOD MIXTURE WE DONT QUIT LOOK LIKE EACH OTHER NOR OUR PPL LEFT IN AFRICA...WHAT IF WE WERE ALL FROM THE SAME NATION BUT FROM DIFFERENT TRIBES...WHAT IF OUR HISTORY HAS ALWAYS BEEN INFRONT OF US BUT SEALED UP FROM OUR UNDERSTANDING BECAUSE OF OUR OWN DISOBIEDENCE...
    NOW IT'S GREAT TO ZIGZAG THROUGH COUNTRIES TO GET A FEEL OF WHO AND WHAT U MIGHT BE MIXED WITH ON UR MOTHER SIDE BUT U ARE WHAT UR FATHER IS REGARDLESS AND HE IS WHAT HIS FATHER IS...BUT Y NOT GET TO THE ROOT AND REAL CAUSE OF THIS MISHAP OR MISFORTUNE THAT FELL ON MORE THAN 100 MILLION PPL WHICH ONLY 10 MILLION REACHED THE SHORES OF AMERICA AND I'M NOT EVEN COUNTING THE DEATHS OF THE NATIVES OF THIS LAND NOR THE DEATHS IN THE CONTINENT OF AFRICA THOSE ARE OTHER STORIES...RIGHT NOW I'M FOCUSING ON THE SO CALLED BLACKS WITH WHOM I ONE DAY BEFORE IGNORANTLY IDENTIFIED AS BEING "THE COLOR BLACK"...
    HAVE YOU EVER SEEN A BLACK PERSON?? OR WHITE?? ME NIETHER..AND READING THE BIBLE IT'S PRETTY CLEAR THAT GOD NEVER GAVE US SUCH SIMPLE TITLES AS SUCH EITHER...
    AGAIN I'M GOING AHEAD OF MY SELF THAT'S ANOTHER STORY MAYBE IF SOME ONE ASK FOR MORE GUIDANCE ON THE WORLD'S GENEOLOGY FROM THE BIBLE'S STAND POINT AND NOT FROM MADE UP PROVERBS AND BYWORDS THAT WERE CREATED TO CONFUSE AND HOLD US DOWN...
    SO I MET A GUY AT A CAFE IT WAS SPOKEN WORD POETRY NIGHT...HE KNOCKED MY SOCKS OFF...I NEVER HEARD A MAN NOT ONLY SPEAK AS CLEARLY BUT WITH WORDS THAT HAD DEEP MEANING...HE STOOD FOR WHAT HE WAS SAYING AND HE SAID THINGS THAT HE BELIEVED...HE TALKED ABOUT GOD, LOVE, AND WOMEN...THREE TOPICS I NEVER THOUGHT I COULD HEAR ALL IN ONE POEM OR STORY OTHER THAN MARY MAGDELENE AND CHRIST FORGIVING HER...I WAS IMMEDIATLY ATTRACTED TO HIM HIS STRENGTH AND IT HAD TO BE HIS MENTAL AND VOICE STRENGTH BECAUSE I COULDN'T SEE HIM DIRECTLY BECAUSE OF THE GREAT COLUMN THAT STOOD IN MY VIEW...WHEN HE GOT OFF STAGE I MADE HIM TALK TO ME BY FIRST COMPLIMENTS ,THEN BUYING HIS CD, AND THEN WITH MORE COMPLIMENTS...THAT NIGHT HE SPOKE EVERY WORD IN MY EAR OF EVERY SONG THAT WAS ON HIS CD THAT I HAD JUST BOUGHT...I MELTED AND IT WASNT CAUSE HE SUNG THE WORDS BUT BECAUSE HE SPOKE THEM AND EVERY LYRIC SOME HOW MADE SENSE TO ME ON HOW I WAS ACTUALLY FEELING...AFTER A COUPLE OF WEEKS OF DATING OF COURSE WITH OUT SEX (I NEVER HAD SEX WITH HIM) WE WERE ABLE TO CONNECT ON A SPIRTUAL AND MENTAL LEVEL...HE TOLD ME HE WAS A MUSLIM AND HE KNEW MY CHRISTIAN BELIEFS BUT I WAS STILL OPEN INTO LEARNING ABOUT ISLAM...SO I LEARNED AND I LIKED BUT FOR ONE I WASNT FEELING THEIR BEEF WITH CHRIST AND HIM NOT BEING OUR PERSONAL SAVIOR JUST A CLEAN BROTHER WHO WALKED WITH GOD BUT IS IN THE GRAVE STILL LIKE ALL OTHER SAINTS WAITING TO BE RESURRECTED...AND I WASNT FEELING THERE HATE FOR THE OTHER NATIONS PLUS I STILL HAD NO IDENTIFICATION...I WAS SIMPLY A "BLACK" MUSLIM YES STRENGTHENING UR RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD IS GREAT BUT I STILL WANTED TO KNOW MY GOD GIVEN NAME I MEAN U CAN'T BLAME ME EVERY BODY ELSE KNOW WHO THEY ARE WHY CAN'T WE KNOW AND WHY IT NEVER REALLY MATTER WHO WE ARE WHEN IT GETS TO US??...
    SO ONE DAY I WAS OVER MY FATHER'S HOUSE AND HE HEARD ME SAY "ALLAH"...HE GOES "LIZ YOU ARE NOT AN ARAB, YOU ARE A HEBREW" IT'S LIKE MY HEARS STRUCK A GOLDEN CORD BUT I WAS RUNNING LATE FOR A MUSLIM WORKSHOP SO I TOLD HIM WE WOULD TALK WHEN I GOT BACK...PLUS BEING A MUSLIM WITH THE NOI U HAVE TO ACTUALLY SIGH A PAPER FORM SAYING YOU BELIEVE IN FARD MUHAMMOD AND A WHOLE BUNCH OF OTHER STUFF THAT'S JUST RIDICULOUS...BUT ALL IS ANOTHER STORY...
    SO WHEN I GOT HOME MY FATHER SET ME DOWN AND I WATCHED THIS VIDEO...THAT I HOPE EACH ONE OF YOU TAKE AT LEAST 10 MINUTES OUT OF UR TIME TO WATCH ABOUT WHO WE ARE AND WHY WE ARE IN THIS SITUATION...FOR A QUICK BRIEF WE WERE CHOSEN TO SPREAD THE LAWS OF GOD TO THE REST OF THE WORLD BUT DUE TO DISOBIEDIENCE AND EVIL WAYS WE WERE MADE SLAVES AND BROUGHT BACK TO SLAVERY BY SHIPS *WINK WINK* WE WOULD ALSOS BE THE TAIL AND NOT THE HEAD UNTIL WE WOULD REPENT AND TURN BACK TO THE MOST HIGH GOD WHO WE WENT AGAINST IN THE FIRST PLACE... COME 2019 IT WILL MARK OUR 400 YEARS OF BONDAGE OVER HERE IN AMERICA...NO WE ARE NOT IN CHAINS PHYSICALLY NOT COUNTING OUR BROTHERS LOCKED UP DUE TO SENSELESS CRIMES BUT WE ARE MENTALLY BINDED MADE TO BELIEVE THAT THE GOVERNMENT IS NOT ONLY THE SYSTEM OF OUR LIVING BUT OUR LIFE SOURCE (GOD AND CHRIST)...THINK ABOUT THAT WATCH THIS FILM SISTERS AND BROTHERS..GET ENLIGHTED NOT JUST SCHOOL SENSE BUT BIBLE SENSE... TAKE NOTES PLEASE

    That was the hardest post to read. In fact, I didn&#39;t read it all. Large caps hurts my eyes and it sounds like you are screaming a infomercial.

    Owww, my eyes!!!!!! I&#39;m sure you mean well and you sound really excited but it&#39;s very hard to read such a long post in all caps...bolded. Think about...you don&#39;t see newspaper or magazine articles written in such a fashion. Plain type and broken up paragraphs are easier for people to read.

    i&#39;m sorry but i have no idea what your point is in this thread.

    is it to say that we were all "african" and then were "separated"? because last i checked, prior to african american as a label, there was no monolithic "african" identity. there were many different tribes, cultures, languages, traditions that separated us long before coming to america.

    is it to show us that if we all just "unite" then we too can have meaning and identity? no matter how much we try to shake it, we are american. american IS us. it&#39;s not something that merely happened TO us. we have as much stake into what america means and there should be no shame in realizing that we, too, are american. if you don&#39;t believe me, try visiting a truly foreign country and then you&#39;ll know how "american" you truly are.

    is it to just profess how proud you are of your identity? then congratulations. but the way you worded your title, it seems like what you are truly proud of is not to be a regular black, but to finally have some "other" in you to authenticate who you are. just like the "i got indian in my family" types.

    so, again, i&#39;m lost.

    please clarify and have mercy on our eyes wiht the caps and bolded letters.

    Yall are harsh dan a mug LOL. Although I am eagerly waiting clarification on what this all meant...and yes OP caps and bold are a sure way to get your thread ignored, it..just...hurts.

    ETA: to the OP some of the first Muslims were of African descent...so being Muslim or saying "Allah" is not exclusively to Arabs....and btw the "Nation of Islam"...ummm..well...lets just say that if that is what you studied under...you didn&#39;t learn Islam. PM me for more information if you please.
