What about Cat Stevens the muslim? Yosef Islam I believe is his name.

those blacks who are easily swayed by the rantings of one person telling them that all their problems are based on a devil type figure that happens to be white (last time i checked farakhan (pardon the spelling) was calling white people this term) would probably have leanings toward islam. i find this reason very similar to the pratices used by the KKK when the reason why white people were not content with their lives was due to blacks and other minorities.
in a days work i would say the devil is preparing those bodies and souls that would rather look away from within and externalize their issues/problems.
but again im only black and not islamic and black (does that matter? is my opinion less valid?)...
