After what we went through, where is the outrage or battle against this atrocity?

Nigerian: 40,000 Trafficked for Sex to W. Africa
By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Filed at 9:19 a.m. ET

ABUJA, Nigeria (AP) — Authorities in Nigeria say as many as 40,000 girls and women have been trafficked to nearby West African countries to serve as sex workers.

Simon Egede said Wednesday that investigators from his National Agency for Prohibition of Traffic in Persons found slave camps full of Nigerian women and girls in Mali, Ivory Coast, Burkina Faso, Niger, Libya, Morocco and Cape Verde. He says he estimates that there are between 20,000 and 40,000 victims.

He says Malian officials are planning arrests soon, and that Nigerian authorities are working to shut down operations elsewhere and prosecute the Nigerian traffickers.

Human Rights Watch reported earlier this year that many Nigerian teenage girls, some as young as 15, had been trafficked to Ivory Coast.

Sadly you hear of this happening all over the world so I can't believe in Afrika its just restricted to Nigerian girls - lots of Eastern European girls are sold as sex slaves in western Europe and nobody seems to care much about them either - seems to me this lack of interest all over is more a sexist thing than a racist one

Thanks for your reply however as you will see the concurrentposts made here as information,
this is about questioning what is the cause of our particlar complacency as the only people in the history of the world to have been removed by the millions from our ancestral home, raped of our culture, in most cases, families destroyed,
and enslaved for 300 years.

If you mean why is the world complacent about it, then what I said is relevant as the white press etc only ever touches on white sex slavery to get a few extra readers now and again - there's obviously no real drive to cure the problem.....
If you mean why are Afrikans complacent about their own sisters back in Afrika suffering this way then I'm more stumped - I mean of all people AA would be the people who one would think would have the most empathy for their situation. Maybe its to do with realism though too - as in what can we actually do to help with this problem from thousands of miles away?

Oooh there are many many ways it can be effected,

and many here on this side of the Atlantic ,particularly Black politicians know exactly how.

I am looking for participants in a study to share their experiences as former African American males served as ED/EBD/BD in the southeast. Participants ages 18-35 will be interviewed and given the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and impressions of their school years. If interested or for more information please contact me directly. Thanks, Cheryl
