This should be an interesting discussion, given previous posts I have seen wrt black people in the past here.

Why did God create black people? It seems as though throughout many ages of history, all black people have been good for is killing each other, being intellectually inferior to whites, being enslaved by everyone and not doing anything for anyone in history. Why is that? Why do you think God created blacks as inferior human beings? Was it to be subservient to other races like the Jews, whites, etc.? I am black and can attest to the exceeding stupidity of many black folk I know. I don't think I know of any black Catholics who are trad, or even interested in traditionalism other than myself.

Why can I not find anything good about African history? The vast majority of Africa seems to be living in mud huts and performing pagan rituals. There are also far more saints of other races than there are black saints (I couldn't give you the name of even one black saint, honestly). Blacks have been at the heel of every single society and get kicked around and treated like nothing. But, is this for no reason? Why would God make black people if He knew they were going to suffer. Is there a racial hierarchy? Are whites spiritually superior to blacks? Was the KKK really so far off to persecute the blacks? (After all, look at us now!) Did Christ die for the human race or human races? How do modern blacks differ from animals? Are there many statistics on the innumerable amount of evils that the black race has committed against others? Are we blacks suffering the curse of Ham?

These are all questions I think that need answers. No longer shall we be left in the dark (this is not a pun) about this issue. I think it deserves answering.
.........................
For those who I have unjustly offended, please forgive me. Please disregard my posts where I lacked charity and you will see that I am actually a very nice person. Disregard my opinions on "NFP", "Baptism of Desire/Blood" and the changes made to the sacrament of Holy Orders. I have dropped the issues until I understand them. Please pray for me.

Furthermore, I would like to inform everyone that I will no longer identify myself with the term 'Sede vacante'. My opinion on the matter (pertaining to Benedict XVI and his predecessors) shall be as follows: Sedes non opus est determinare.

Also, for those who are wondering if I've returned to the forums: I wouldn't say I've returned per se, but I've decided to remove myself from most discussion that takes place here and read what people say. I may make a comment once every so often, but for now I prefer to take a more watchful position.

I retract all former posts which contained ecclesiological and canonical (I should not have commented on Canon Law to begin with) errors, and if I say anything now which may contradict Catholic doctrine, I would be pleased to receive correction in charity. May the persecuted legitimate Clergy, who are not Montinian, nor 'independent', soon triumph over all their enemies.

I do not give implicit assent to all the forum rules.

Black / African Saints
The history of the Church is full of many black / African Catholic saints, who received recognition for great deeds or meritorious conduct. Many lost their lives in defense of the faith. Many were also honored for their contributions to the Church and their community.

list of black Saints

One of the first conversion stories in the Book of Acts concerns a black man.  It teaches many important truths about the nature of faith:
Quote:
[26] Now an angel of the Lord spoke to Philip, saying: Arise, go towards the south, to the way that goeth down from Jerusalem into Gaza: this is desert. [27] And rising up, he went. And behold a man of Ethiopia, an eunuch, of great authority under Candace the queen of the Ethiopians, who had charge over all her treasures, had come to Jerusalem to adore. [28] And he was returning, sitting in his chariot, and reading Isaias the prophet. [29] And the Spirit said to Philip: Go near, and join thyself to this chariot. [30] And Philip running thither, heard him reading the prophet Isaias. And he said: Thinkest thou that thou understandest what thou readest?

[31] Who said: And how can I, unless some man shew me? And he desired Philip that he would come up and sit with him. [32] And the place of the scripture which he was reading was this: He was led as a sheep to the slaughter; and like a lamb without voice before his shearer, so openeth he not his mouth. [33] In humility his judgment was taken away. His generation who shall declare, for his life shall be taken from the earth? [34] And the eunuch answering Philip, said: I beseech thee, of whom doth the prophet speak this? of himself, or of some other man? [35] Then Philip, opening his mouth, and beginning at this scripture, preached unto him Jesus.

[36] And as they went on their way, they came to a certain water; and the eunuch said: See, here is water: what doth hinder me from being baptized? [37] And Philip said: If thou believest with all thy heart, thou mayest. And he answering, said: I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. [38] And he commanded the chariot to stand still; and they went down into the water, both Philip and the eunuch: and he baptized him. [39] And when they were come up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord took away Philip; and the eunuch saw him no more. And he went on his way rejoicing.

.........................
Most sweet Jesus, whose overflowing charity for men is requited by so much forgetfulness, negligence and contempt, behold us prostrate before you, eager to repair by a special act of homage the cruel indifference and injuries to which your loving Heart is everywhere subject.
