Christianity was only in eastern Africa. Not so much west Africa and the reason Islam isn't talk cause only a small majority are Islamic in American.

Christianity existed in a parts of Africa before Europeans even grouped themselves together

Slaves were not allowed to read b/c slave masters feared they'd read actual passages in the Bible (and not just fragmented bs that was fed to them) and start to see themselves as the White man's "neighbors" (it's my theory as to why Black pastors have a tradition of barely reading out of the Bible and just babbling on and on about 1 passage lol).


If anything, Christianity helped maintain their sanity or what was left of it... it gave them hope and faith in the face of unimaginable circumstances

Once you understand that religion was never the real reason why Africans were enslaved, just a convenient excuse, you can stop demonizing the belief system and simply demonize the perps


THANK YOU all of this!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ethopia and very few places in the continent that Christianity was introduced and it was via proper christianity and not with books missing different sect.

Islam doesnt' get much talk due to the history not being known but they are equally as guilty.
 
It pretty much points that religion is also political, economic, and social engine for warfare.

This is maddening.....

Here's the thing.  African slaves APPROPRIATELY used the white man's religion as a tool to gain their own freedom.  The problem is they also needed as a tool for years of oppression and segregation.  We were too far removed from our original beliefs and language by the time we were allowed to worship in this land in our own churches.  The only religion available to us was Christianity.  Trust and believe if blacks started practicing some "foreign" religion the lynchings would have been massive and "justified". 

FTR (ugh) Judaism, Islam and Christianity are the same, same, same, same exact thing.  The only difference is the same difference between Catholics, Protestants, Jehovah's Witnesses and the like.  You all believe exactly the same thing.   You worship the same god.  The only thing different is that Muslims and Jews believe Jesus was a prophet and not the son of god because they see that as blasphemous.  If god is the one perfect uncreated being it is not possible for him to "father" a child in the flesh (so they believe).    Jesus appears in the Koran more times than the entire Christian Bible.   He is actually talking and teaching from his crib.   Jesus was JEWISH.  Not Christian. 

And they are ALL three the religions of Caucasian people.  This is not an African or Black Religion so arguing that its not a WHITE religion just sounds uneducated and silly.  Stop.

Christianity is a European religion developed by disaffected Jews and Europeans.  There were no Africans involved.  None.   The bishops at the council of Nicea and Emperor Constantine decided that Jesus was the son of god.  The Jews disagreed.  The Muslims developed later and rejected their decisions.  Again, all yt folks arguing about their own religion and breaking into three groups.    

Some of the slaves were actually Muslim but they were not Christians or Jews.   If anything black people have a connection with Islam but definitely not Judaism or Christianity.   That came from slavery (in America) and evangelism in Africa.  Jews, Christians and Muslims were required to spread their beliefs and/or kill anyone who rejects them.  It says as much in all the the books that guide their morality(?) - Torah, New Testament and Koran.

But y'all were ready to make salt circles in pebbles thread for the practicing of an African religion by her neighbours

I'm just pointing it out ..

I donno how y'all can not connect the dots..

FYI... The Greeks then the Anglos made Christianity the white man's. the European refugees brought it over from Europe

To be exact it's a western asian religion(s) that derives from other religions around western asian and northern africa and tidbit from india. When you look at the whole picture. It's a mixed of tons of other religions and formed years and years. Like I said Western Africa was not christian and that was eastern Africa and still it was different from European christianity. West Africa had Islam, but it wasn't as strong as thought to be usually the aristicrats were Muslim and it was primarily for trading purposes, but they didn't pressure the smaller towns and tribes to be muslim.
