A correction to the common, mistaken belief that the pre-Islamic Arabs were white and racist, as seen by their alleged treatment of Bilal, the Ethiopian Companion of the Prophet Muhammad. A refutation of recent Muslim attempts to defend the White Supremacist paradigm in Islam. A critical analysis of some Afrocentric discourse on Islam. An introduction to a new paradigm: Ma atic Islam.
