    Sadly even here we surrender to our oppressor’s “month” for his former slaves. Once a progressive idea, Black History Month now serves as more camouflage for mass incarceration, middle class disintegration, nuclear family devastation, and housing, health and employment discrimination afflicting African America. They are spending $500 million on a STATUE of Martin Luther King while black children starve. As Muslims, we must recognize the special role conversion has played in the African American community, the strength Islam has given it, and how we can embrace our black heritage without obsequiously pandering to the false praise of BHM.
