Who Is the First Anti-Racist?

Who was the first anti-racist? Rooted in both ignorance and arrogance, racism has plagued civilizations since the advent of man. Hear the remarkable story of a pioneer who addressed this disease of the heart and mind from its root cause. Watch Dr. Craig Considine of Rice University as he presents the story of the first anti-racist, from the 7th century, who set in motion universal principles that forever changed the discourse on racial equality.

  1. That is 600 years late.
    God speaking through previous Scriptures was way before Mohammad – going back to creation – Genesis1:26-28.
    God created humans in His image ( morality, reason, all internal spiritual and relational characteristics that make us different than animals.)

    The NT was anti-racist long before.
    Ephesians 2:11-22
    Racial and cultural barriers were broken down by the cross in the church; the enmity between cultures and races was abolished .

    People from every nation and tribe and language and people group are purchased by the blood of the lamb at the cross.
    Revelation 5:9; 7:9

    Galatians 3:28 – in Christ there is no Jew or gentile or slave or free or male or female – meaning all are equal

    Colossians 3:10-11

    9 Do not lie to one another, since you laid aside the old self with its evil practices, 10 and have put on the new self who is being renewed to a true knowledge according to the image of the One who created him— 11 a renewal in which there is no distinction between Greek and Jew, circumcised and uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave and freeman, but Christ is all, and in all.

    Even before NT, foundation was laid,
    The OT also – Israel was to be a blessing to all the nations – Genesis 12:3; 22:18

    Psalm 67, 96:3; 87

He was not approving of the attitude that the Jews had, but using a common cultural attitude to test the disciples and also to draw out the woman’s faith – she did not whine or complain; she did not do a victim mentality type thing; but fully accepted the wrongness of her paganism, and was saved out of that paganism, calling Jesus “the Son of David” = Messiah, and “Lord”.

        Are you kidding or are you serious, Kenny?

        The Quranic verses you refer to say nothing about RACE. That’s what we’re talking abou here. Focus, Kenny, focus.

        There were non-Arab Muslims in the time of the Prophet, basically from the very beginning. We had Bilal (as) and later we had Salman Al-Farsi (ra), and of course there were others as well. Allah (swt) didn’t need to “test” the Arabs with the prevailing view” of non-Arabs. He just put it plainly: there is no race in Islam. All are equal. The only thing that makes a person superior is piety.

        In contrast, your mangod decided to insult a well-meaning and faithful woman to…ahem…”test” his Jewish disciples! Wow!

    • Ken the Qur’an calling a certain people the worst of creatures isn’t ‘racist’. If God puts out His Law then everyone who believes in it will be the best and hence why everyone else will, by definition, be the worst. In other words: they are not the worst just because they don’t belong to a certain NATION (like the gentiles not belonging to Israel or in the case of Islam the gentiles would then be everyone that isn’t Arab) but because they don’t accept God due to their rejection of the last Prophet and the Message he brought from God.

      • Is that you again whore of Babylon?

        I’ve already dealt with the “raisin-head” nonsense in my response to the nutjob Jack Chick:

        In fact, the hadith that Chick was referring to clearly shows that a person’s color or nationality could not preclude the people making him their “chief” and obeying him. Here is the hadith:

        “Narrated Anas bin Malik: Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) said, “You should listen to and obey your ruler even if he was an Ethiopian (black) slave whose head looks like a raisin.””[68]

        We can see that the hadith is not even claiming that all Ethiopians have a head that “looks like a raisin”. It is merely saying that even if such a person was made the “chief”, it was incumbent upon the people to obey him. Moreover, there are other versions of the hadith where it does not mention what the Ethiopian chief’s head looks like:

        “It was narrated that Yahya bin Husain said: “I heard my grandmother say: ‘I heard the Messenger of Allah say, during the Farewell Pilgrimage: If an Ethiopian slave is appointed over you who rules according to the Book of Allah, then listen to him and obey.”‘”[69]

        And yet another version describes the Ethiopian slave as having been “mutilated”, yet it was still incumbent upon the people to obey him:

        “It was narrated from Umm Husain that she heard the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) say: ‘Even if the one appointed over you is a mutilated Ethiopian slave whose nose and ears have been cut off, listen to him and obey, so long as he leads you according to the Book of Allah.’”[70]

        Finally, a hadith about the end times states that the Kaaba will be destroyed by an Ethiopian man known as “Dhus-Suwaiqatain” (“the thin-legged man”). Does that mean that all Ethiopians have “thin legs”? If we follow Chick’s logic, the answer would be yes, but if we follow normal logic, then the answer is no. Here is the hadith:

        “Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) said, “Dhus-Suwaiqatain (the thin legged man) from Ethiopia will demolish the Ka`ba.””[71]

        Thus, by making this silly and stupid argument about “raisin-heads”, Chick demonstrated that he was a chowder-head!

        https://quranandbibleblog.wordpress.com/2017/12/18/islam-jack-chick-and-the-battle-for-souls-camels-in-the-tent/

        But there is more to the hadith. Scholars describe the use of the phrase “…whose head looks like a raisin” as an Arabic rhetorical device known as “an argument by the absurd” or “trajectio ad absurdum”, a term coined by the late British orientalist Bernard Lewis,[56] which he explained as the following:

        “[a] principle is asserted and an extreme, even an absurd, example is given – but the purpose is to show that the principle still applies even in this extreme and absurd formulation.”[57]

        Akande explains that the hadith of the hypothetical Ethiopian slave “whose head looks like a raisin” uses the “trajectio ad absurdum” rhetorical device because the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him):

        “…wanted to stress the importance of obedience to the legitimate Islamic authority, however unlikely the form in which it appears.”[58]

      Ham is represented by the Talmudists as one of the three who had intercourse with their wives in the Ark, being punished therefor in that his descendants, the Ethiopians, are black (Sanh. 108b; Gen. R. xxxvi. 11).

      Now I know what you’re thinking Christians never believed that! Well…

      Color Symbolism: Black as Sinner, Devil, and Demon
      One image of the black African introduces us to the complex world of color symbolism, specifically the symbol of black as evil. The issue before us is not the abstract metaphor of black as evil (e.g., black heart, black day), which is apparently universal, but the concretization of the metaphor of blackness in the black person, in other words, the notion that the biblical black African metaphorically or allegorically represents evil. We find this first in the works of Philo, the first-century Alexandrian-Jewish philosopher,
      who explains that Kushís black color adumbrated his son’s, Nimrod’s, evil nature, because pure evil has no participation in light.î67The application of the metaphor of darkness as evil to dark-skinned people was also made in one rabbinic midrash which, interpreting Amos 9:7, says that when the Israelites sin they are like Kushites, i.e. black in sin. The most extensive such application of the metaphor was made by the church fathers in their allegorical interpretations of the Bible. The most ramified of these interpretations, as well as the one with the greatest influence, was that of Origen (d. ca. 253). Using the metaphor of blackness as sin, he identified various biblical references to
      Ethiopia or Ethiopian(s), as well as the black maiden in Song 1:5-6, as symbols (ìtypesî) of the gentiles, who, not having known God, were born and lived in sin. Building on this
      foundation, Origen then erected an exegetical superstructure that encompassed all
      scriptural Ethiopians as sinners. Thus, God’s words to the prophet Zephaniah, From
      beyond the rivers of Ethiopia will I receive the dispersed onesî (Zeph 3:10), means that
      although the Ethiopian, typologically the gentile church, has been stained with the inky
      dye of wickedness [and] has been rendered black and dark, he will nevertheless be
      accepted by God; or, to take another example, Ebed-melech, the Ethiopian (Jer 38:7-13),
      who is ìa man of a dark and ignoble race, represents the sinning gentiles.68
      Origenís biblical exegesis was enormously influential on the church fathers who
      followed.69 His interpretation of Songís maiden as an Ethiopian, and his use of this and
      other biblical Ethiopians as a metaphor for those in sin (i.e. the gentiles), became
      widespread in later patristic literature. It ìset the tone of all later exegesis.î70 In sum, the
      patristic hermeneutic tradition saw the biblical Ethiopian as a metaphor to signify any
      person who, not having received a Christian baptism, is black in spirit and without divine
      light. In a similar way ìEthiopiaî came to symbolize the ìas yet unevangelized, and
      spiritually unregenerated world of sin.î71

  2. Ephesians 2:11-22

    around 60-62 AD, while Paul was in prison at the end of Acts.

    11 Therefore remember that formerly you, the Gentiles in the flesh, who are called “Uncircumcision” by the so-called “Circumcision,” which is performed in the flesh by human hands— 12 remember that you were at that time separate from Christ, excluded from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers to the covenants of promise, having no hope and without God in the world. 13 But now in Christ Jesus you who formerly were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ. 14 For He Himself is our peace, who made both groups into one and broke down the barrier of the dividing wall, 15 by abolishing in His flesh the enmity, which is the Law of commandments contained in ordinances, so that in Himself He might make the two into one new man, thus establishing peace, 16 and might reconcile them both in one body to God through the cross, by it having put to death the enmity. 17 And He came and preached peace to you who were far away, and peace to those who were near; 18 for through Him we both have our access in one Spirit to the Father. 19 So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are fellow citizens with the saints, and are of God’s household, 20 having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus Himself being the corner stone, 21 in whom the whole building, being fitted together, is growing into a holy temple in the Lord, 22 in whom you also are being built together into a dwelling of God in the Spirit.

    I would also add that the hadith about the two colors of people is metaphorically referring to people of Righteousness and people of sin. The charcoal image refers to the fact that these people will be in hell where they will burn for eternity. Hence, they will be charred beyond recognition. The whore of Babylon will most likely be one of these people. 😁

        You follow a fallible jew called Paul who used to corrupt the teaching of the OT as you read in Romans and other letters. You yourself has admitted this fact. Moreover, Jesus commanded his disciples by the following “The teachers of religious law and the Pharisees are the official interpreters of the law of Moses. So practice and obey whatever they tell you, but don’t follow their example. For they don’t practice what they teach.” Matt 23:2-3.

        You’re just a product of your prophet Paul who called the law of God in the OT as (jewish fables) while in the same time he fabricated some prophecies and combined some jewish legends in his letters.

        Islam, is from Allah (sw). And According to the teaching of Islam there’re scriptures sent to the people before. If it happened that there’re similarities between Islam and other teachings from other religions, then that affirms what Islam told us from the beginning. The problem is with jews and christians who think the truth has begun with them.

      • but the Qur’an refers to the book الکتاب that was with the Christians at that time, so the Injeel has to mean the NT, even though Muhammad was ignorant of it’s contents; he affirmed the writings that the Christians had AT THAT time, which confirmed 600 years of the text that we still have today.

        Even Isaiah 56 refutes you, because it clearly says that only those “foreigners” who keep the Sabbath and the covenant will be accepted. That covenant includes circumcision of BOTH heart and flesh. You have been unable to refute this. It has to be BOTH.

        Genesis 17:13 – Whether born in your household or bought with your money, they must be circumcised. My covenant in your flesh is to be an everlasting covenant.

        Jeremiah 9:25-26 – The days are coming,” declares the Lord, “when I will punish all who are circumcised only in the flesh— 26 Egypt, Judah, Edom, Ammon, Moab and all who live in the wilderness in distant places. For all these nations are really uncircumcised, and even the whole house of Israel is uncircumcised in heart.

    No its not. Instead of copy and pasting do some research. The hadith is in Tirmidhi and was classed sahih by Sheikh Albani

    Also some more:

    At-Tirmidhi (3270) narrated from Ibn ‘Umar that the Messenger of Allah (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) addressed the people on the day of the conquest of Makkah and said: “O people, verily Allah has taken away from you the arrogance of Jaahiliyyah and its pride in forefathers. People are of two types: righteous and pious, who are dear to Allah, and doomed evildoers, who are insignificant before Allah. People are the descendants of Adam, and Allah created Adam from dust. Allah says (interpretation of the meaning): ‘O mankind, indeed We have created you from male and female and made you peoples and tribes that you may know one another. Indeed, the most noble of you in the sight of Allah is the most righteous of you. Indeed, Allah is Knowing and Acquainted’ [al-Hujuraat 49:13].”

    • You’re getting desperate now Stew Jojo. You have Muslims who did the research. Your own scholars reject the hadith. It’s not even a weak hadith, you’re using a fabrication. It does not exist. I thought maybe you did not even know. I could give you the benefit of the doubt. Many Muslim quotes it. Without doing research it’s a fabrication. But since you keep arguing. In your case, it’s not ignorance but deception. I know it’s a fabrication from memory. If I tell you, you ask for a reference. Since you like reference, I had to look for one. I had to copy paste from somewhere. You will find Islamic website and muslims online also confirm it’s a fabrication.

      S. F. H. Faizi, Muḥammad (Prophet), “Sermons of the prophet” – Hadith references which are often cited as sources for this fraudulent sermon, once checked, are either misrepresented (i.e. they have nothing to say on the sermon)[26] or in fact refer to the sermon that most fits al-Tabari’s rendition with regard to beating women and so on.

      Ok I’ll become a Muslims. I’m convinced especially after you used a fabricated hadith to make your case.

      Now Stew Jojo stop arguing with your own scholars and accept the truth. And stop twisting the word of Muhammad. Your putting words in Muhammad’s mouth. It’s a fabricated last sermon. Show some respect for your prophet.

      In summation, Faizi “derived” this version of the sermon from various unnamed books not accepted by the ulema (scholarly Muslim clerics). He does not know the original sources, but welcomes readers to help in his search.

      Hadith references which are often cited as sources for this fraudulent sermon, once checked, are either misrepresented (i.e. they have nothing to say on the sermon)[26] or in fact refer to the sermon that most fits al-Tabari’s rendition with regard to beating women and so on.[27]

      The following authentic version is taken from al-Tabari, Vol IX, and it’s important to note that it is in perfect agreement with the Qur’anic order of wife-beating in Quran 4:34. Attempts to add this authentic version next to the other two at Wikipedia, had been met with resistance.[28]

      You should contact your scholars, you found the source of the last fabricated sermon which never existed 😆. Instead of arguing for a fabricated hadith. I know you wish the last sermon of Muhammad was peaceful. In reality he was full of hate towards the jews.

      The scholars are aware of all the sources. Nothing you can quote that they don’t know. It’s a fabrication.

      Let me know when you wake up from the darkness of Islam. No point continue a conversation with someone who try to defend a fabricated hadith. You mad? You’re wasting my time.

        You are the one wasting time because you are a troll whose heart God has sealed. I know your English sucks but how about YOU try reading (Emphasis mine):

        Ahmad (22978) narrated from Abu Nadrah: Someone who heard the khutbah of the Messenger of Allah (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) on the second of the days of at-Tashreeq told me that he said: “O people, verily your Lord is One and your father is one. Verily there is no superiority of an Arab over a non-Arab or of a non-Arab over an Arab, or of a red man over a black man, or of a black man over a red man, except in terms of taqwa. Have I conveyed the message?” They said: The Messenger of Allah (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) has conveyed the message.

        CLASSED AS SAHEEH BY AL-ALBAANI IN AS-SAHEEHAH (6/199).

        So whom should I believe your no source quote (who you probably just copied from Shamoun who doesn’t know what he’s talking about?) or Sheikh Albani in his Sahih Tirmidhi? Become a Muslim Emma or you will be among the worst of failures in the Next life.

    You should really read more as I addressed this already.

    1.Jesus(as) took the side of the Pharisees over the Sadducees. What was the biggest difference between the Sadducees and the Pharisees after resurrection? If oral tradition (such as the Talmud) are valid. Pharisees said yes, Saducees said no. So yes they are valid otherwise you have laws that have no application in the Bible. There are so many evidences of them having another law its too large to list here:
    http://www.aishdas.org/student/oral.htm

    2. You have no explicit text (you actually have quite a bit of text to the contrary) there is a clear theme of Jewish supremacy. Again you all claiming Jesus forced a woman to call herself a bi**h of Israel. At best you can say Jesus never spoke on the issue otherwise the Disciples (who are racist according to you) wouldn’t have argued about it. Also I love the fact that ALL your early scholars said black people are stained in wickedness and sin but now in modern times (like 20-30 years) to evangelicize to black people its all:
    “Oh no its not racist.”

    Despite the fact that it was used to justify the largest deportation of people in known history nf was used as a means of oppression to people STILL alive.

    • Explicit texts:

      Mark 11:17 – Jesus said, “is it not written, My house shall be a house of prayer for all the nations” ?

      quoting Isaiah 56:7 – see whole context 56:1-7 – “the foreigners who join themselves to the Lord”, etc.

      goes back to Genesis 12:3, 22:28; 26:4; 28:14; 49:10

      “through you (Abraham and his descendants), all the nations/ peoples / families / cultural people groups will be blessed”

      God’s love for all nations is very old – way back in Genesis 12 – much older than Muhammad.

        That is not “explicit” text, that is is “implied” text. Implied text is if some is reading they would not initially think that was a meaning. Explicit text is the initial obvious meaning like Muhammad(saw) saying a black has no superiority over a white, a white over a black, an Arab over a non Arab, and a non Arab.

        I agree God meant His message of monotheism for everybody but your text is full of Jewish supremacy and states otherwise.

        Regarding the Talmud quote this works against you, to begin basically you have Jesus telling people not to wash their hands before they eat lol. This whole passage is, in fact, an illogical argument:

        Yo why do your followers not wash your hands like the Elders taught?

        8You have disregarded the commandment of God to keep the tradition of men.”

        1. How does that put aside God’s commandment? This is an illogical line of argumentation.
        2. There are plenty of things that go into a person that defile hence sayings like “You are what you eat” or food that is plain bad for you such as pork, alcohol and a variety of other foods.
        3. This text does not say oral traditions are out and so since the Bible is racist we can assume the traditions about Noah and black people were accepted as the text of the Curse of Ham makes no sense otherwise as well as judging by Christianity’s “fruits”.

      • defile, in this context does not mean things like physical illness, stomach aches, obesity, etc.

        Defile is talking about being sinful and dirty in the sight of God – guilt and sin.

        The text of Genesis 9 does not say what slave traders or justification for slavery or Jim Crow (southern Democrats) made it out to say.

        No one follows those wrong interpretations.

    Lol, so pretty much all of Christianity’s major scholars and peoples (i.e. it’s “fruits”) were wrong until recently when they need to evangelize to black people again. Got it.

    Anyways this is illogical as the Jews never argued that and this is a strawman argument by the Biblical Jesus to defend people not washing their hands before they eat (which is still wrong).
