The Arab enslavement of the Dinka people.
Muslims capturing and hacking disobedient slaves, 1866.
Captioned, “Slavers Revenging their Losses,” shows a coffle of men, women, and children, led by Arab slavers; one of the guards is murdering a captive unable to keep up with the rest. These people were taken across Central Africa to the east coast of Africa. The engravings in this book are based on, according to the editor,” rude sketches” made by Livingstone. On June 19, 1866, Livingstone wrote: “We passed a woman tied by the neck to a tree and dead, the people of the country explained that she had been unable to keep up with the other slaves in a gang, and her master had determined that she should not become the property of anyone else if she recovered after resting a time. . . . we saw others tied up in a similar manner . . . the Arab who owned these victims was enraged at losing his money by the slaves becoming unable to march, and vented his spleen by murdering them” (p. 56). “The Life and African Explorations of Dr. David Livingstone” (St. Louis, 1874).
After the fall of Saddam Huessin media finally could report on what it is like to live in a Muslim Arab Middle Eastern country for black people, and here is something that most black people don’t know much about.
There is severe racism and racist attitudes towards black folk by Arabs. In fact, the racism against blacks remain from the Arab slave trade when 140 million Africans were captured, sold, and exported by Muslims. It is Muslims who created the expansive export of slaves in collaboration with local African Kings. The massive wealth they accumulated from it, attracted the rest of the world to part take in the slave industry many centuries later.
Arabs had been exporting and selling slaves for more than 1000 years before others caught on. Even today, in 2013, Muslims enslave over 27 million blacks throughout Africa, and parts of the Middle East. Slavery is legal according to Quran’s sharia law as the prophet also enslaved, raped and killed blacks. Muslims engage in slavery of other people as well, but especially enslavement of blacks who are considered sub-human by Arabs. A few months ago we posted an image from an ad in Arabic where a Saudi offered a “castrated black African” for sale he had purchased when the slave was a child. In Sudan Muslims sell child slaves for around US$10 to other Muslims (today’s market rate).
[note: the “white people” referred to in the video are Arabs, not caucasians. Muslims refer to blacks as “Abd/Abid” – slave – even to this day]
