Swagll you can ask the question why are there so many blacks in Africa of the Islamic faith. If you want to be openminded that would be a good question. Blacks have been enslaved in the USA over 400 years ago. It it is only obvious that those who were slaves accepted the religion of their masters. The same goes for the Arab Slave trade. The difference between the black Christians is they can accept any other religion if they choose to BUT with Islam you know what happens to those who renounce their Islamic faith.I really expected to hear more people speak on this subject. Yet, as I have witnessed over the decades many folks are uncomfortable with religious discussions, etc. regardless how simple the question is, etc. It's something that they rather not do. One cannot go against the grain of that which has been religiously taught and instilled within the mind frame. Yet, humans have been asking questions for centuries.
You said "people are uncomfortable with religious discussions" you need to remember that Christianity is ONE of the worlds religion. So if you want a real discussion perhaps you would have to include the other religions e.g. Muslim, Jewish, Hindu etc..
There are blacks in USA who are of various religious persuasions. To just ask about why blacks are so involved in Christianity is to be in my mind a bit bias.
