Arab slave traders

Reader comment on item: Farrakhan Demands Reparations from Jews

Submitted by Art Victor (United States), Sep 21, 2010 at 15:02

Mr. Farrakhan has his usual screw loose. The slave-trade from Africa was mostly an Arab enterprise, and he knows it. AND the slaves were sold by other Africans, The vaunted Nubians kept slaves. "Restitution" maybe a good idea.. IF the descendants of slaves will take any generous restitution with the proviso that they return to their homes in Africa, with our sincere apologies. Horrors How "racist"!! Why so??
