    Blacks are just as capable as anybody else of experiencing God for themselves, silly.  Stop being such a racist.

    Obviously they were indoctrinated into western religions. They obviously were never allowed to practice their native religion. Same goes for native North Americans. They were forced to accept Christianity. Christianity has suppressed many people. Through history the Christian religion has been evil in their attempt to convert people.

    Because THEIR original religion

    the "original religion" of the people you are talking about who are alive today

    is not the religion of their (relatively near) African ancestors.

    Why don't YOU follow the religion of your great-grandfather?

    And if you do...

    why don't you follow the religion of your ancestors who lived 2,500 years ago?

    And if you do...

    why don't you follow the religion of your ancestors who lived 5,000 years ago?

    etc.

    What "original religion"?  Being witch doctors and cutting beating hearts out of live people?

    Nothing was forced on the people currently alive. I think, unlike liberals, they can decide for themselves what religion they embrace.
