Sekou Jackson is used to the questions: Why does he need to leave a work meeting to pray? Don't black Muslims convert to Islam in jail? Why would you even want to be Muslim?

"It's kind of a double whammy to be African-American and Muslim," said Mr. Jackson, who studies the Navy at the National Academy of Science in Washington. "You're going to be judged."

I have to admit I have met several of these characters around the United States

And their story is bizarrely similar. Prison, then Islam.

First thing I do when I visit any new town is find a Pakistani place. I have a weakness for goat meat, and the goat legs are a great strength enhancer for the legs and joints. They're nice people too, at least the ones in the United States.

So, this is where I met all these black folks. They just come there, socialize. Generally, some cleric schedules a rendez-vous and guess where Al-Santa reindeers tonight

These men readily assume I'm muslim and give me a discourse on Islam and their life changing experience as I wait for my stuff. Finally, I bid adieu, "Allahu Akbar" and get out of the place, laughing all the way out.

Well, I am half black myself and I must say, as politically incorrect as it sounds, anything that can get that many black guys to give up pork chops must be looked at with the upmost suspicion.
