In response to your post, I find it unbelievable that a Black person would be a Muslim. In the UK where I live, there are slaves from Nigeria, Mauritania and Sudan working illegally for rich Arab Muslim families right NOW as we speak. It has been happening for a long time but only now is the government doing something. These people have their passports taken away and are not allowed out by themselves and usually sleep under the stairs in cupboards.

This is NO JOKE. They are often beaten and raped and told if they try to escape that their families will be killed back home. Organisations have been set up to try to protect them if they do run away, but it still goes on. Brother, you need to wake up and research this and also learn the history of Islamic slavery which started 1000 years BEFORE the Europeans got involved. They got involved as it was an established trade, they never started it, not that I am excusing it of course. Also Islamic slavery was often the sale of slaves for sex, not work, with boys and girls sold to satisfy their masters. European slavery used slaves for manual labour not sex. Did you know the Arabic word 'A'bd' means both 'Black' and 'Slave'. Islam has by far the most blood on its hands with regards to the slave trade.
