Reply to "The True History of Malcolm X & the NOI"

(More laughter from me)
NOI logic for being Muslim sounds the same as the logic of African folks who refuse to deal with the historical realisites of X-tianity.
Why aren't the Europeans 'custodians' in the same manner for the Ausarian principles that are clearly visibly retained in that religion? Are you next going to tell me that Judaism and X-tianity have not been transformed all the years they have been influenced and warped under European patriarchy?

Your post was very flowery but it is not dealing with the fact that both X-tianity and Islam have been 'transformed'(since you don't like the word stolen) under FOREIGN INVADER CULTURES AND PEOPLES TO AFRICA. There is NO WAY around this historical fact. No matter how much the NOI doesn't like to admmit it.

Culture is fluid, it is not like the mathematical example you used. Religion is the deification of culture. Any religion that spent even a couple hundred years in the hands of the enemy of African people is going to become transformed into the deification of THAT culture. If this is not true than why is X-tianity so screwed up? The NOI openly admits this about X-tianity, why not Islam? Obviousely the Arab and European had the same monstrous behavior towards African people(colinization and enslavement)Why is one oppressor the 'custodian' of 'granted' knowledge while the other one isn't? That is not logical.

The traditional African religions like that of IFA are based on the teachings of the Nile Valley yes, but that is because the actual people migrated from that region to West Africa about 2000 years ago. Now, since religion is the deification of culture wouldn't the African principles of MAAT be better maintained by African people than by an outside slaving and colinizing force? Or do you really think that your oppressor comes to give you tools for your spiritual liberation?

MAAT didn't come to Africa(as you well know), it was created INSIDE OF AFRICA by AFRICAN people. MAAT was not 'lost' to us. Only people that believe that poppycock about us 'being enslaved because we had fallen from the true path of God'(the true path is always someone elses path) believe that crap.

We are in this mess because we were fighting along too fronts and that created massive internal problems. That is how most wars are lost. X-tian European invaders to the West and Arab Muslim invaders to the North and East. Both came with the sword and their foreign 'developed' religions that deified their respective cultures and dehumanized us. You can deny it, and talk around it as much as you want but the truth the truth.
