"America needs to understand Islam, because this is the one religion that erases from its society the race problem....... I have never before seen sincere and true brotherhood practiced by all together, irrespective of their color."
- We are Muslims, this is a special relationship that we have with our Creator
- We are Blackamericans and we have a relationship with the larger society. It is this relationship that is unequal, it is in this social sphere that injustice towards us is dealt out . It is in this arena that our struggle against structural racism, economic inequality and social injustice must be undertaken.
"Only by committing ourselves to 'color-consciousness' - meaning an awareness of the consequences of color in a historically white-dominated nation- can we even theoretically begin to alter those consequences."
