Default Re: How do you USA black christians feel about your Islamic/African roots?

Just another brother wondering, with brother i dont mean anything racial! In Islam "brother" or "sister" is a term used upon other muslims, it is actually a term blacks use today upon eachother and yes you guessed it correctly that came from your Islamic roots, i bet many african-americans dont even know that or ignore it since they are now "Christians" but still somehow use the term and act like its just a "Black thing", no its not... its a muslim thing.

Live on and live hard brothers! But never forget your roots!

No offense but, have you ever heard of the Arab slave trade?

EDIT: Both Christianity and Islam have been spread primarily on the tip of a sword.
