Error, indeed, is never set forth in its naked deformity, lest, being thus exposed, it should at once be detected. But it is craftily decked out in an attractive dress, so as, by its outward form, to make it appear to the inexperienced (ridiculous as the expression may seem) more true than the truth itself. - Irenaeus

Black is not Always Beautiful
The Interpretation of the Noble Qur’an endorsed by the Saudi Chief Justice might be a difficult pill for American blacks to swallow if they read it objectively. It’s describes judgment day in ethnic terms. "So on that Day no question will be asked of man or jinni as to his sin [because they have already been known from their faces either white (dwellers of Paradise — true believers of Islamic Monotheism) or black (dwellers of Hell — polytheists, disbelievers, criminals)]. The Mujrimun (polytheists, criminals, sinners) will be known by their marks (black faces), and they will be seized by their forelocks and their feet." (see Surah 39:60, 55:39)

Thinking that Christianity is a white man’s religion some Black Muslims have a twisted understanding of slavery in the Muslim world.  Mohammed clearly allowed slavery and took women "whom your right hand possesses" (Surah 33:50) in addition to his wives for sex.  
Muslims in many countries have taken part in the slave trade. As a matter of fact, Saudi Arabia, the home of the Grand Mosque and Qa’ba of Mecca, continued slavery as a common practice until it was abolished in 1962. Though the African country of Mauritania, because of global political pressure, outlawed slavery in 1980, many Arab masters, still hold black slaves. It is not merely a sin of white Christian culture. Temptation to capitalize on the benefits of cheap labor is as broad as humanity itself. Even certain American Indian tribes were known to capture members of other clans. Human nature is not necessarily dictated by the color of our skin.
