It was not "Blacks" who Founded the Oppressive Economic System

It was the "whites". They are the people of "Knights Templar" who allied with the Western European Christian kingdoms from the ancient German (Holy Roman Empire), Italy (Papal Kingdom), French (Frankish), Spanish (Iberian Peninsula or Aragon), and England (Britons) to against the Islamic Saracen troops and conquered the "Holy Land of Jerusalem" (Today is Palestine) and did the "Crusade War" for hundreds of years, 4 times longtime war. See this information :

Modern historians would scoll at such a notion, but certainly illustrates the unique hold the Knights Templar have had on the European imagination ever since they emerged from obscurity in the late 1120s. They have been seen as heroic soldier-monks guarding pilgrims of the Holy Land during the Crusades, defenders of Holy Church who fought alongside Richard the Lionheart.

...

...their achievements were to be the creation of the first standing army in Europe since the days of the Roman Empire, and - as the first bankers in the West - the medieval organization that did most to pave the way for modern capitalism.

...

Given that the Templars played a major role in financing the Second Crusade, it might be worth examining the role of the Order played in the financial affairs of both  Outremer and the West, and the subsequent dominance they exerted over what was to evolve into a system of international banking

The Temple as Bankers

The Templars quite early on their history developed a reputation for being reliable bankers. They were - in effect - Europe's first bank. They developed a system of credit notes whereby money deposited in one Templar preceptory could be withdrawn at another upon production of a credit note. Monies thus deposited proved to be quite safe, as Templar keeps were formidable buildings. Some of their castles in Outremer, for instance, were so well defended.

...

The Structure of the Order

As the Temple grew from being the original nine soldier- monks sworn to poverty, chastity and obedience into what we would nowadays recognise multinational corporation, so too did the structure of the Order evolve to reflect and support its expanding role in affairs of the crusader states.

...

Each major kingdom in the West with a significant Templar presence had a Master who was answerable to the Grand Master : France, England, Aragon, Portugal, Poitou, Apulia and Hungary.

Another short information to enhance the credibility of the explanation. See the information below :

They were prominent in Christian finance; non-combatant members of the order, who made up as much as 90% of their members,[2][3] managed a large economic infrastructure throughout Christendom.[4] They developed innovative financial techniques that were an early form of banking,[5][6] building a network of nearly 1,000 commanderies and fortifications across Europe and the Holy Land, and arguably forming the world's first multinational corporation.[7]

Quote
Salad ed-Din Yusuf, more commonly known as Saladin, had been one of the Muslim generals who had played a prominent part in keeping Almaric's forces at bay during the Egyptian campaigns of the 1160s, and he was to come into his own after Nur ed-Din's death by forging alliances and creating unity between the various Muslim kingdoms with the intention of continuing the jihad (holy war) against the Franks.

...

However, there was one segment of the Frankish population that he felt outright hatred for, perhaps because he understood how fanatical they were in their commitment to the Christian cause - he detested, possibly even feared, the military orders.

...

Muslim custom decrees that a man who is offered food or water shall be spared. After his capture, Saladin offered a glass of water to King Guy, who gratefully accepted it. The glass was not offered to Reginald of Chatillon, the most hated man in the whole East; instead, Reginald was offered the choice of conversion or death, and he refused to convert. Saladin wasted no more time and personally decapitated him. The Templar and Hospitaller captives were given the same ultimatum - apostasy or death. Saladin's hatred of the military order was founded upon his belief that they were the most fanatical of the Frankish warriors, and the aftermath of Hattin proved him right. The Templar were so eager for martyrdom that there was almost a stampede to be the first to be beheaded. All 230 Templar prisoners - and those of the Hospital - were executed. Only Gerard de Ridefort was spared.

I'm sure that the European and "American" rightist support the Templars
