Where Are The Descendants of Ubada ibn Al-Samit (RAA)

I think that it is quite clear now what Ubada ibn Al-Samit looked like and how black-skinned he was. I think that it is also clear how pure-blooded an Arab he was. Let's now take a look at a tribe in Saudi Arabia that takes pride in being a descendant of Ubada ibn Al-Samit. That tribe is called Aal Ubaid. The following is a picture of members of this tribe:






As you can see, their complexion is nothing like that of Ubada ibn Al-Samit. The problem is that the general idea today is that their complexion is the complexion of Ubada ibn Al-Samit and the pure Arabs of the past. Now look at the Saudi Arabs in the picture below. They are originally from Hadramout, Yemen.


Who looks more like the description of Ubada ibn Al-Samit - the people in the first picture or the people in the second picture? The problem is that people think that the people in the first picture look like the pure Arabs of the past and that the people in the second picture are not pure Arabs, but descendants of "African" slaves. The person on the left in the above picture is Abdel Rabb Idriss. Look at what someone on one of the Arabic forums said about him:

ثاني: اخر شي تقول مارايك في عبد الرب ادريس؟ جوابي: هو احد العبيد الزنوج المتحضرمين
"You ask me my opinion about Abdel Rabb Idriss? My answer is: He is one of the Negro slaves who pretend to be from Hadramout."
Do you see the serious misconception that people have about who is an Arab and who isn't and what the original Arabs looked like?

    Hi. I'll give you a personal testimony of a fact i encountered years ago. I am an allumni of Shaw University, the oldest HBCU in the southestern U.S. Its doors opened Nov. 21, 1865. Shaw has face some ups and downs and had some wonderful people throughout the Earth to phalanthropize (Is there such a word?), give money and resources. In 1980, Shaw was in real financial trouble and it was Prince Abdullah Al-Saud, Iraqi presidentSaddam Hussein, and the Kuwaiti Emir that gave mony and resources in aiding Shaw to establish it Social Sciences and International relations building that houses a uniqueley built masjid. Prince Abdullah Al-Saud (now deceased)and his PR team came and personally broke ground and later cut the ribbon afte the building;s completion. The eve before the ribbon cutting, Prince Abdullah Al-Saud asked for the best local barber to cut his hair. He wanted a Black barber. To the University's surprise, the Prince had coarse hair. This was in the 80s. Being reared in the south, I heard all sorts of racial slurs. Nigga. Nigga and when there was the gas shortage I heard the term "sand-niggas" when the Saud family was referrenced by Jesse Helms and company. Just commenting on some light I got way back when on the ethnicity of the real Arabe. Yes, what we have today I will say, are mulattos to the 2nd power, who are very anti Black, If I can say that. Yes, in the masjids and At Masjid , Haraam in Mecca. There is talk on the head Sheik, Adil Al-Kalbani who is Black and a native of Saudi Arabia. There is good talk and there is of coarse bad talk amongst "Muslims!" So sad in Islam. The Truth you have here must be Raised and Taught regardeless of any retaliation!
