No doubt Louis Farrakhan (a widely known muslim leader) leading the million man march back in 1995 may have given that impression, even though only a few thousands Muslims were actually involved in it.
That said a large group of Africans are in fact predominantly Muslim. Especially northern African countries where you can find countries with over 90% Muslim populations.
woah owoah I was implying a global majority I never said ALL there is a big difference between a generalization and blatantly stating ALL
2nd I was reffereing to the republican candidate and wasn't criticizing any of the posters on the thread I think my previous statement was blown way out proportion here
@ Act I do actually count North Africans when I made that statement as black may conjure up a skin color image I apologize for confusing everyone with that but in its day to day use it does refer to people of African descent and not only classmates but I have even had a few professors from countries like Libya/ marocco/ eygpt who vehemently identify with being African despite the diff in skin color (an in an ugly case I saw one rag on the black kids for disrespecting their ancestry)
4th I am Mexican/American and can tell you right now not every Latino is Catholic many many are catholic in name only ( just like many American are baptized but do not actively practice)
while there are both Jewish and Islamic minorities in Latin countries dating back to colonialism, as well as asian based immigration like the Chinese to countries like Peru (over a million last I checked) have spread Buddhism
not to mention the enormous amount of religious traditions carried over from indigenous peoples
