Come on my brotha! You knew the ANSWER before asking the question......right? 1500 to 1700 is roughly when the Europeans came on the scene in terms of slavery of Africans. Of course, the enslaved are gonna adopted the belief of the master. That's a given. And it's called control/power. But! You know this. And the other side of that is the Arabs forced conversion to Islam to every place they CONQUERED including most of Africa and India. Sooooooooo say you're playin'. Cuz I can't believe as swift as you are you don't understand how Africans i.e. blackfolks in this country and in the western hemisphere are christians. Or are you playin the devil's advocate? Cuz the reasons why are CLEAR as the sky is blue. But!
