    The racism against Black people is universal,i experienced it in Brazil, all of Latin Amerika is racist, the US, is less racist. The experiences of dark skin Afrikans in Afrika ans Latin Amerika parallel each other. We have a global problem, our skin breaths disdain in all cultures, the perception of Blck is always negative. When Anwah Sadat was the president of Egypt he was referred to as the Blck dog. Being a Muslims means nothing if you’re a dark skin one, in these countries. We have a serious path to travel in this society.

      Wake up people. We cut our fingers and we all bleed. We hurt, we cry, we feel pain. There is so much fighting going on in this world, horrendous crimes against animals. Leave people of colour alone. Lets Boycott China for one. I hope a hugh sunami takes Chinese Aliens under the sea.

    There are differences in Blacks just like there are differences in whites. Like the American Blacks are really are the original Hebrews the Bible said so and they are NOT Africans and those Black people are not Negroes which are the true Hebrews. When the MOST HIGH come he’ll prove it to you he knows his people. The MOST HIGH people was in slavery no other people went into slavery but the Negroes who were scattered all over this world into slavery. Deuteronomy 28:48 Therefore shalt thou serve thine enemies which the LORD shall send against thee, in hunger, and in thirst, and in nakedness, and in want of all things: and he shall put a yoke of iron upon thy neck, until he have destroyed thee. WHAT RACE OF PEOPLE THAT HAD IRON AROUND THEIR NECK THAT WAS ENSLAVE BY THE EUROPEANS THE ROMANS “THE NEGROS FROM THE LAND OF CANAAN” WHICH IS CALLED ISRAEL TODAY.
    28:49 The LORD shall bring a nation against thee from far, from the end of the earth, as swift as the eagle flieth; a nation whose tongue thou shalt not understand;
    28:51 And he shall eat the fruit of thy cattle, and the fruit of thy land, until thou be destroyed: which also shall not leave thee either corn, wine, or oil, or the increase of thy kind, or flocks of thy sheep, until he have destroyed thee.
    Deuteronomy 28:68 And the LORD shall bring thee into Egypt again with ships, by the way whereof I spake unto thee, Thou shalt see it no more again: and there ye shall be sold unto your enemies for bondmen and bondwomen, and no man shall buy you.

    REVELATION 2:9-11 9. I know how you are suffering, how poor you are-but you are rich. I also know that those who claim to be Jews slander you. They are the synagogue of Satan. 10. Don’t be afraid of what you are going to suffer. The devil is going to throw some of you into prison so that you may be tested. Your suffering will go on for ten days. Be faithful until death, and I will give you the crown of life. 11. Let the person who has ears listen to what the Spirit says to the churches. Everyone who wins the victory will never be hurt by the second death.
    REVELATION 3:9-13. 9. I will make those who are in Satan’s synagogue come and bow at your feet and realize that I have loved you. They claim that they are Jewish, but they are lying. 10. Because you have obeyed my command to endure, I will keep you safe during the time of testing which is coming to the whole world to test those living on earth. 11. I am coming soon! Hold on to what you have so that no one takes your crown. 12. I will make everyone who wins the victory a pillar in the temple of my God. They will never leave it again. I will write on them the name of my God, the name of the city of my God (the New Jerusalem coming down out of heaven from my God), and my new name. 13. Let the person who has ears listen to what the Spirit says to the churches.
