Shocking, yes. Surprising? no. Abd (Arabic: عبد) is an Arabic word meaning slave or black (interchangeable) -- one who is totally subordinated; a slave or a servant. Are black leaders in America who urge their constituents to convert to Islam telling them that blacks are referred to as their abid (slave) and abeed (slaves) in Islam? Are the imams who are converting black convicts by the thousands in the prisons revealing this to their new followers?

"Muslim police chief refuses to share toilet with blacks" Independent Online News, South Africa, July 11th 2012 (hat tip Tom)
A Muslim police officer in Johannesburg says his religion does not allow him to share a toilet with black colleagues, according to a report on Wednesday.
Superintendent Munaf Ismail, head of the Zonkizizwe police station on the East Rand, told the New Age newspaper that for religous reasons, he used the toilet for people with disabilities.
“I am a Muslim and they need to consider my religion. I have to sit when I urinate and I cannot use a dirty toilet. People are narrow-minded and I am a committed Muslim.”
