(Not that I am saying anyone should convert or that Islam is the only way to end racism. I wouldn't want my husband or anyone else to stop being an atheist or change their beliefs in that way. What I am pointing out is that the true values of the religion is fiercely against racism.)
[L]istening to leaders like Nasser, Ben Bella, and Nkrumah awakened me to the dangers of racism. I realized racism isn't just a black and white problem. It's brought bloodbaths to about every nation on earth at one time or another. Brother, remember the time that white college girl came into the restaurant—the one who wanted to help the [Black] Muslims and the whites get together—and I told her there wasn't a ghost of a chance and she went away crying? Well, I've lived to regret that incident.
