  • African Americans Tend to be more sympathetic towards Muslims?

    Don't consider me a racist. But from my experience, African Americans tend to be more sympathetic towards Muslims than Caucasian Americans. I reckon it might be the historical links with historical figures such as Muhammad Ali and Malcolm X, or the fact they're minorities who went through hardships too.

    1) I understand what you are saying, I thought of that too. For example, look at the comments in this video:

    2) However, we should not generalize, there are also African Americans like Obama. African Americans are oppressed in America, historically and presently. I think this is the reason why some of them sympathize with the suffering of the Muslims.

      I noticed this as well. African-Americans are usually pretty friendly with me. I think they are more open to accepting Islam compared to others in the US. So many of them have converted.

      Has the time not come for those who have believed that their hearts should become humbly submissive at the remembrance of Allah and what has come down of the truth? And let them not be like those who were given the Scripture before, and a long period passed over them, so their hearts hardened; and many of them are defiantly disobedient. (57:16)

          You're telling me African Americans make up the majority of the US military? Also people join the military for different reasons. I reckon African Americans feel more angry towards the government than Caucasians do. Without being stereotypical, I think most African Americans joined the military for financial reasons.

            1) There are some African Americans that do not sympathize with such people. They call them "Uncle Tom" and "House Negroes". For example, Malcolm X:
