We should remember that we have been indoctrinated by our oppressor. We have been fed lies and half-truths concerning ourselves and other people around the world. White supremacy isn't a USA phenomenon, it's a global phenomenon. It's insidious and widespread.
In this country, the two most hated groups are...
2. Muslims (regardless of race)
Most of what you hear about these two groups are negative, biased, or outright false (propaganda).
One of the main reasons we remain in a dismal state, as a people, is that we seem incapable or unwilling to set aside our differences to work together to uplift our people. Who cares if that black man or woman who is honestly trying to help his or her people is gay, too dark, too light, an Atheist, a Jew, a Muslim, had committed a crime 20 years ago, is wealthy, is poor, speaks proper English, speaks bad English, lives in the South, lives in Utah, loves country music, has 'bad' hair, loves rap, etc. We allow our (petty) differences to keep us divided. Our oppressor is fully aware of this and exploits it.
Islam is the second fast growing religion in the USA (after Christianity). The last thing our oppressor wants is a large, black Muslim population. In particular, they do not want a large black population following the teachings of the Nation of Islam. Why? Because they would no longer have any psychological control over the black population. Keeping us oppressed and ignorant benefits and furthers the system of white supremacy. Oppressor's Goals:
1. Make sure blacks receive a constant barrage of negative propaganda about Muslims.
2. Make sure blacks believe all Muslims are Arabs.
3. Avoid showing images of black Arabs at all costs.
4. Downplay or minimize the European involvement in the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade while emphasizing the Arab slave trade. Make them synonymous. Hell, change history. Tell blacks that Arabs enslaved white Europeans and forced them to enslave black Africans.
Anyway, I digress. Here are some articles and videos that prove we aren't being told the full truth.
Yes, the original Arabs were black! Many are still black, LOL.
What is considered the Arab world?
Eritrea, Djibouti, Somalia, Ethiopia, Libya, Algeria, Morocco, Egypt, Sudan, Tunisia, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Iran, Turkey, Syria, Lebanon, Yemen, Oman, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Georgia, and Azerbaijan. I might have missed a couple of countries.
Not all Arabs are Muslim (although the majority are Muslims). The majority of Muslims, in this world, are not Arab.
This is important. White Arabs (with the white supremacy mindset) view blacks no differently than the way white Christians (with the white supremacy mindset) view blacks. Whites are a minority on this planet, yet they have practically all of the wealth. We, the majority, are allowing a small group of people rule us. This small group of people holds the power and controls what information we receive. This group knows that the masses will not question what it is being told. If you want the truth, you have to research it.
Here is a video about the racism blacks face in Morocco. Look at the faces of the rulers. It is a revolting shame because hundreds of years ago, only dark-skinned blacks lived in that area now called Morocco. They were displaced by white invaders.
Some information about Muammar Gaddafi (one of the most hated by the West) that was not broadcast on mainstream news and other outlets to the people in the USA:

The Arab Slave Trade (another perspective):
'There is nothing nice about being a slave of either Arabs, Europeans, or even Africans. Slavery, mild or otherwise, is a crime against a human being. But it would be historically and morally inaccurate not to cite that there is a serious difference between vassal-ship and chattel-ship.
'Western Europe not only corrupted the slave/servility systems in Africa, they also caused the Arab slave boom in the 19th century. And most critical is Europe's continuation of the African Holocaust up through colonialism, apartheid, neocolonialism and the current exploitation of Africa's resources. These events are not disconnected, although attempts are made to dichotomize these realities.'
Excerpt from The Arab Slave Trade. http://www.arabslavetrade.com/
The Trans Atlantic Slave Trade (Ghanian perspective):
'During the heyday of early European competition, slavery was an accepted social institution, and the slave trade overshadowed all other commercial activities on the West African coast. To be sure, slavery and slave trading were already firmly entrenched in many African societies before their contact with Europe. In most situations, men as well as women captured in local warfare became slaves. In general, however, slaves in African communities were often treated as junior members of the society with specific rights, and many were ultimately absorbed into their masters' families as full members. Given traditional methods of agricultural production in Africa, slavery in Africa was quite different from that which existed in the commercial plantation environments of the New World.'
Modern-Day Slavery (Human Trafficking and the Industrial Prison Complex):
Mauritania is ranked first as where slavery is the worst, followed by Haiti.

The Prison Industrial Complex:
And we all know which groups have a disproportionate number of people locked up.
There has been some form of slavery in every country. There have been members of every racial group, religious group, and ethnic group who have been guilty of enslaving another human being...in both the past and in the present.
Slavery is wrong. Period.
