    Thanks, I was aware of the white slave trade in Africa but I wanted to say a few things with proof (and have proof), look in the articles yourself (I cba to read the articles) but what I've heard:

    Slaves were sold by white people (AKA Profiteers of white Slaves), if not white pirates.
    Slaves were not treated badly.
    The slaves were allowed/kept by the Ottoman empire.
    The minority were white, most of which criminals.

    So, from what I have heard (and I'm not sure it is true) there is a difference between the two.
    more than likely black/arab - "But before we had lost sight of land, we were captured by Algerine pirates, who put all the men in irons"

    "These slaves were housed in large prisons known as baños (baths), often in wretchedly overcrowded conditions. They were mostly used to row the corsair galleys in the pursuit of loot (and more slaves) - work so strenuous that thousands died or went mad while chained to the oar."

    it could have been up to 2 million white christians enslaved

    the only differences in the two are that Africans enslaved Europeans for profit and because they were Christian, whereas Europeans did it for profit and that they were Black. the other difference is the amount

    hmm... there's no point in trying to argue with you anymore is there.
    I guess by me stating a reason why some people might justify racism means that those are my beliefs as well. :rolleyes:

    "You're a racist bigot. Just because you're Black doesn't make it acceptable for you to claim superiority. I'm sure you'd take a dim view of me suggesting people with roots in Britain were somehow better than everyone else, so please return the same respect."

    Neg repped with that :coma: Someone is on their male period. :no:
