Reader comment on item: Saudis Import Slaves to America
in response to reader comment: Funny how white people can say about islam when they treated blacks as slaves....

So, we, America, outlawed slavery in 1860 think. And that disqualifies us from being able to criticise, MODERN DAY SLAVERY IN SAUDI ARABIA? REALLY? And then u go on to say that u r ok with slavery in saudi arabia as long as they treat their slaves well. And since they treat em well...they are the good guy and we are the evil nation? I feel terrible about that, and would like to make amends... would u mind coming back to America with a couple ... slaves? I promise, i will treat the three of you better than any slaves in America have ever been treated!!! Hows that? WOW, I FEEL BETTER ALREADY. HAPPY TO MAKE AMENDS FOR THE SINS OF UNKNOWN ANCESTORS. ...
