African-Americans, slavery and Islam

I am always surprised when I see African-Americans who have converted to Islam. Are they just not aware of Islam’s history with black people? I wish every African-American would read this article from Islam Watch. Among other things, it points out that:
Muhammad, the apostle of God, the Islamic prophet of peace, was a slaver. He owned 40 slaves some of them blacks. Muhammad had kept his female slaves as concubines, so did his comrades and pious companions.

Mohammed referred to Blacks as "raisin heads". (Sahih al-Bukhari vol. 1, no. 662 and vol. 9, no. 256).

In another Hadith, Mohammed is quoted as saying that Blacks are, "pug-nosed slaves". (Sahih Moslem vol. 9, p. 46-47).
