"Indeed, Allah loves those who act justly." #Quran 49:9 #Justice over #oppression. Be just despite your #pride, despite your #animosity, despite your #ego.Do it for the #children and not for yourselves.
"Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they’ve been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It’s an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It’s a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing." #MuhammadAli #Impossible #inspirational #Quote #早安 #MagandangUmaga #godmorgan #GutenMorgen #Goodmorning #BuenosDias #Bonjour #Gunaydiniyi #صبحبخیر #SelamatPagi #อรุณสวัสดิ์ #좋은아침 #おはよう

“In 1921 African Americans had managed to build Greenwood, a booming industrious town within Tulsa, Oklahoma that came to be called the ‘Negro Wall Street’ by the local residents. Segregated towns like Greenwood formed because it was often unlawful for blacks to own businesses in white cities….In the face of more than 300 years of bondage, segregation and oppression African Americans were organizing, building healthy and economically self- sustaining communities. Against overwhelming odds they were becoming successful. For a multitude of reasons white society could not sit casually by and watch us flourish. So, in one of the most successful black communities seen in America up until that time it seemed like something had to give.”
One morning during rush hour people claimed they heard Sarah Page, a white elevator operator scream and then saw Dick Roland, a black shoe-shiner, running from the elevator. As a result Roland was arrested and jailed for assaulting a white woman. The next day an article and editorial in the local newspaper called for Roland to be lynched. That night a white mob went to the courthouse to get Roland and a group of black men marched in from Greenwood to protect him. A confrontation between the groups ensued, shots were fired and the riot began. As the black men retreated to their community, white police officials deputized many of the mob and gave them instructions to, in effect, “go out and kill you some damn ni***rs” . Perhaps as many as 10,000 whites stormed Greenwood. When it was all over, Greenwood had been razed to the ground and hundreds were dead. Ironically, Sarah Page refused to press charges against the accused and Dick Roland was acquitted. - Dr Joy Degruy [Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome]
#BlackIsBeautiful #BlackHistoryMonth #Slavery #AfricanHolocaust #Maafa #Maroons #Moors - Currently #reading “Servants of Allah: African Muslims enslaved in the America’s” for a second time. Above #Portrait is of Job Ben Solomen AkA Ayuba Suleiman Diallo of #Bundy #Senegal. This is a part of Black history that has been marginalized and often overlooked, mainly to suppress the presence of #Islam from in Black History studies. According to researchers it’s been estimated at least 30% of the African slaves brought to the Americas were #Muslims. They were literate in Arabic which seemed to have vixed many slave owners whom many were illiterate in their own languages. Even this being the case there were some slave owners who did use these slaves to write contracts.
Another fact that has been well hidden is many of the early slave revolts were led by Muslims. The Wolof were the only African population targeted by name. The Spanish settlers had reason to be familiar with them, because the Senegalese had led the 1st revolt by Africans in the Americas. In 1522, Wolof had revolted on the sugar plantation of Admiral Don Diego Colon - Christopher Columbia’s son in Hispaniola, in the territory of what is today the Dominican Republic. As they went from plantation to plantation rallying other Africans, they killed a dozen whites. Wolof had also rebelled in San Juan, Puerto Rico; Santa Marta, Colombia and in Panama.Spanish settlers and officials were also leary of the relationships between African Muslims and Indians. Repeatedly Muslims were blamed for being a corrupt influence on the Indians. In the mid 16th Century Indians were still the majority population despite their decreasing numbers in the Spanish territories in the Caribean and the Americas. Africans who fled slavery often found refuge among them. In the French West Indies they formed Maroon Communities under protection of the Caribs we’re particularly destructive. 300 African Maroons led by Antonio Mandinga in Panama raided plantations, stealing livestock and destroyed crops. In addition to the nuisance of the Maroons, the Spaniards faced large assaults by Africans allied with Indians. Such rebellions occurred in #Hispaniola (1522-1532) #Mexico (1523) #Cuba (1529) #Panama (1550-1582) #Venezuela (1550) #Peru (1560) #Ecuador (1599) #Guatemala (1627) #Chile (1647) #Martinique (1650) and much later in #Florida (1830-1840). Colonists responded urgently legislating laws making it illegal for Africans to be close with Indians. Also fearing the possibility of Islam amongst the Indians. Though this concern may not have been rooted reality, but strong enough to enforce rigid segregation between Africans and Indians. The religion of Islam did not spread but Muslims may have attempted to reach out. Accusations & condemnations do not confirm if this offense was committed, but in 1560 the Mulatto Luis Solano was condemned to death along with the “Moor” Lope De La Pena was sentenced to life in prison for practicing Islam and spreading it in Cozco, Peru. For having been found in an Indian village in Costa Rica Pedro Gilofo, a runaway, a Wolof who may have been a Muslim was condemned to death and boiled alive on September 1, 1540.
