As I traveled in the Ivory Coast, my interpreter would explain to me how certain villages were his ancestors slaves.

It is not all Muslim.

Really? How about the female slaves who gave birth? Everyone has genes.
This was a real blooper on the part of either the article or book author.

No it wasnt a mistake at all. Their children were killed.

Check out an old book entitled “Negroes in Negroland”. It is a compilation of journals written by white African explorers and slave traders, published in 1868.

Blacks in America should thank God their ancestors were enslaved. Few of these would even exist if not.

Spend some time in Turkey and see how many “African-Turks” are there. I’m talking longstanding families that are of African slave” descent. Hint....you won’t find statistically any. The males were all castrated before being allowed in. The death rate was enormous from post castration infection. The Ottomans much preferred the Europeans captured by coastal raids...ie Barbary Pirates.

The Bible tells the story of how God liberates the Israelites from slavery of the Egyptian Pharaoh in Exodus.

Thanks rktman. I'm not one of those "common knowledge since 9 BC" trolls, but the Arab role in modern slave trading has been recognized at least since the1970s, when I was screwing up in college.

I haven’t researched this but it simply does not make sense to me.

Please do research it.

To be fair the slaves sent to Arabia weren’t castrated either.

The were fully emasculated. Nothing left between the anus and the umbilicus but a keloid scar and a tiny hole to pee out of.

The muslims often put them in charge of guarding harems, just to rub it in.

There is so much lack of education about the facts of slavery it is shameful. Take out the Arabs and the black African coastal dwellers / slave hunters and there is virtually no 'American' slavery in the 18th century.

But, for me, one of the most overlooked facts about slavery in America is the number of white slaves, starting in the 16th century. Oh sure, they are called 'indentured servants' - explain how that differs from slavery.

Your indenture could be extended for a whole host of minor infractions. Since people didn’t live that long, it easily could be a life time.

Not all the white slaves in North America were indentured servants.

I descend from one of the first indentured servants at Plymouth, 1620, Edward Doty.

I am related to cousins and great aunts and uncles who were captured by Indians in Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire and Massachusetts, marched up to Quebec and sold as slaves to the French.

The Indians kept a few to be their own slaves, and adopted the children into their tribes.

Some were ransomed back by relatives, some chose to remain in Canada, the owners of some refused the ransom and kept them.

“I don’t believe that. In fact it can probably be proved wrong. “
____________________________________

malach,

Please remove your 21st century glasses and look at the history of Islam.

Slaves were not about profits.

They were for the enjoyment (in any form) to their master, the Islamist.

If an Islamist couldn’t get his rocks off abusing one of his own wives or concubines/slaves, they could do whatever they wanted to a slave.

From an historical viewpoint it makes all the sense in the world to utterly destroy the person you fear could turn into a warrior against you.

History has shown that trait in usage all over the world and down through history.

Very, very few societies were about aiding their beaten enemies once the battles are over.

Islam has no qualm in concurring, killing, converting anyone.

It’s not about profit as the end.

If they gain profit, that is a side note.

It’s all about granting to themselves the most basest of base desires; told to them they could have in the name of Satan which they call Allah.

Good point; this is known history, a good addition here. The Last of the Mohicans

True; the indentured people are often presented in media as being in friendly circumstances and almost family. That was true at times; at times - not.

‘”It is not necessary to mention the Arab-Muslim slave trade too much so that young Arabs do not have to carry all the weight of the crimes perpetuated by the Arabs.”

Nice shift the blame jerkwad.
