I knew that a lot of the African slaves forced to come to America were Muslims

but I didn't think the slave owners cared enough to know the religion slaves practiced since I heard slaves weren't even considered human

so that's why I found it shocking that people in America even knew about Muslims during that time

this is another link about the history of Muslims in America
http://www.muslimsinamerica.org...p;amp;Itemid=1

some even say Muslims were there before slavery and before Columbus
I thought that was pretty interesting
probably because I'm Muslim

PS I'm not making Thomas Jefferson out to be some perfect person
I know he had a dark side just like everyone else

but I do appreciate his stance on accepting Muslim citizens the way James Madison and George Washington did
