Most people are completely suprised to learn that the Muslim slave trade in Africa lasted more 1300 years whereas the slave trade to America only lasted 400 years. In fact many still believe that only white nations ever owned black slaves.

Muslims also forced African kings to actually give them slaves and sparked many wars on the continent.

Most black slaves were castrated by Muslims and not allowed to have children. Children of black women were routinely killed. This explains why relatively few survived living in the middle east compared to the Americas where they could marry and have families.

In this short 5 minute video Senegalese Anthropologist Tidiant N'Diaye talks in more depth about this topic. I would highly advise people to take the time to watch it. You will see the subject of slavery in Africa in a whole new light

Well isn't this interesting?

-Where is the anger from Blacks at over 1000 years of oppression from Arab Muslims?
-Where are the calls for an apology and reparations for the Muslim slave trade?
-Where are the accusations that Arab Muslims have the blood of blacks slaves on their conscience?

What about Islamic African countries like Somalia. They were very involved in the slave trade, maybe that's why people think that only white people enslaved black people, because some black people enslaved other black people?

Well we bought slaves from Africans. We probably did enslave Africans directly. You could say we were the demand which encouraged Africans to sell to us, but there's a whole lot going on. Local warfare, people would've taken prisoners. Maybe they would've killed them instead of taking them prisoner and selling to us. It's a huge complicated issue. It does disturb me the idea of 'the white man's burden' being perpetuated internationally. True, the whites were responsible for slavery in white countries but it did not happen only in white countries. Whites were enslaved and taken to the New World as well by white countries, usually criminals.

It's a very uncomfortible thought for black people with a victim mentality and a grudge against white people to acknowledge some uncomfortible truths.

Their narratives consist of the lie that black people were all happy in Africa holding hands and dancing in the rainbow before the evil white man came and enslaved them and ruined everything

The fact is that Arab Muslims had already enslaved and harvested blacks for almost 1000 years before any white nation arrived. Even then they BROUGHT the majority of their slaves from both blacks and Arabs they never even needed to capture them.

The Muslims demanded slaves from the black kings which created a scramble to capture other blacks for them. It started many wars and helped to create a whole industry of slaves.

The idea that only white people ever owned black slaves is one of the biggest lies ever told in history.

Records show the overwhelming majority of slaves owned by whites were brought.

If they were not so easy to purchase it is highly doubtfull they would of had so many if they had to go to all the trouble of actually capturing slaves themselves.

Well the only reason people are surprised to hear about any non-White slavery, from the Egyptians in Biblical times, to the Incas to the Chinese etc. is because of an agenda to do with evil white people and poor non-whites.

Slavery is only ever depicted White. I think it is a little like defamation that they want White people to be made out as all being slave owners when reality is few could afford to even own slaves and there was a point in history where White slaves were cheaper than Blacks.
In Barbados for example there are still some Irish left who went there as slaves.


Also this is something that goes ignored. Jews and slavery. Jews have resided in so many countries in the world, they are part of the Western world and are were incredibly wealthy merchants. Knowing this do are we to believe that Jews did not sell slaves? own slaves? It is anti-Semitism to know it but they are happy to say White people owns slaves. When are Jews ever White other than when it comes to hiding in the White census? This is something that we should talk about because they very much see themselves as a different race, then they should not be in the White demographic.


The Nation of Islam bought out several books that only quoted Jewish historians, Rabbi's and scholars. It goes into great detail about the Jewish history of slave trading.
