 Ayanna - Islam, Colourism and the Myth of Black African Slave Traders
Africans in the Diaspora have the challenge of rewriting a history that has been stained by years of distortions, omission and downright lies.
Diaspora Africans are often quite naïve and will do anything to hold fast to the illusion that " we are all Africans" and ignore the racism that has existed among a group that is far from uniform.
Add to this the religious fervor of the Muslim invaders, their non-acceptance or regard for traditional African religions, and the obvious economic and political desires for which religion was used as a tool, and we get an excellent but little spoken of picture of Islam in Africa.

 Evidence of Blacks in the Bible
In fact, this line of reasoning, that there are no fl people mentioned in the Bible, has formed the basis for an argument of exclusion of fls and the justification of slavery in the United States during the 1800s.
Therefore, since fl people have no souls and because fl people are beasts and animals in Genesis, we are told that God gave humans dominion over the beasts and the beasts are to help the humans to work the fields and to do the hard labor and the work.

 Black people - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The term Black was soon replaced by Negro but by the 1970s African-Americans reclaimed the term Black, as did segments of other non-white populations who shared in their struggle against racism.
Blacks, for example, are a racial group defined by their possessing some degree of recent African ancestry (recent because, after all, everyone of us is out of Africa, the origin of Homo sapiens).
Barack Obama self-identifies as fl and could identify as fl or multi-racial on the U.S. census and by many dictionaries, though the British census would classify him as mixed and some biological definitions would claim he's not fl because only half of his ancestors are from sub-Saharan Africa instead of most.

Most HIV-positive fl Africans in the UK are infected by HIV subtypes A and C, whereas white patients are predominantly infected by subtype B, according to the authors.

To accuse ten intelligent, professionally trained, white adults merely of 'manslaughter' in the death of a fl African whose shackled (by them), inert, helpless body they brutalized to death even as they taunted him with racist slurs ('Filthy creature!', 'Swine!') is much revealing and terrifying.

 Redefining 'black' - Los Angeles Times
In addition to fl immigrants' need to hold onto their own identities, many whites have historically tended to regard fl immigrants as a model minority within a troublesome native-born fl population.

 People Of Color In The Bible (Part 1 - Egypt)- Articles- BlackandChristian.com
Black people and other people of color have dealt well with this state of affairs, focusing not on portrayals and images, but on the truth of the saving gospel of Jesus Christ and the brotherhood of all of His children.
But overuse and abuse of European images have "given great occasion to the enemies of the LORD to blaspheme" Him (2 Sam 12:14) by calling Christianity a "white man's religion", a religion of racial prejudice, when it is neither.
From God's perspective it's just as important to make it a point to mention that people He used were Africans or other people of color as to mention they were Roman, Greek, German or English, "for ye are all one in Christ Jesus".

Mormons claim that fl folks are the descendants of Cain and Ham.
