Sudan is an Islamic nation. Why would the USA be concerned with the welfare of black Muslims in an African country? If the USA is so concerned about the welfare of the people in Darfur, why did it impose economic sanctions on the country? Sanctions that hurt the innocent? Why would Israel be concerned with the plight of black Muslims in Sudan? Question everything!
Louis Farrakhan traveled to Darfur in 2006 to find out for himself what was going on. Please watch this video (about 15 minutes long) to hear what he saw and heard. It's very revealing.
Everything they said on the video was true, however, it still appears they they glossed over the "Slavery " aspect that was occurring in Sudan during this conflict, and the fact that it WAS Arabs murdering, enslaving and brutalizing and displacing non-Arab[non-Islamic] Africans and Arab adversaries there. It doesn't matter that the Arabs that committed most of these atrocities were Black, they were still Arabs.
Just like how Republicans will try to take credit for African Americans being predominately Republican after Lincoln through the 'Dixiecrat' era as if the Republican party and its members' philosophies have remained the same, it appears that Farrakan and the other speaker are claiming that it could not be Arabs committing these atrocities in Sudan against Black people because the Arabs were Black themselves. Their explanation was equivalent to saying that "Christians" were not responsible for something because the Christians that did it were Black, merely because the majority of the Christians are White. Especially, after explaining the psychological aspects of bi-racial and mixed Black Arabs creating a "color-caste" system of prejudice and racism against pure Blacks in that country in the first place, that in itself is evidence of these atrocities having been committed out of racism.
And, while, I respect the vast knowledge of the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakan and many aspects of the NOI's blueprint for self-reliance, I still question Minister Farrakan's [rightly so] criticisms of America and its history of slavery and its racist history against Black people here, because I find it disingenuous that he belongs to a religion that did the exact same thing, for far longer, to Black people, yet, he finds no fault in that religion, culture or its politics, or makes no mention of the fact that Black people are still being held as slaves in certain Arab countries.
