    This link from another post goes to a site talking about slavery still in Africa. I had not heard much about this before. Do you think it is true or a lot is just the media?

    If it was true it seems we would have heard a lot more about it or did I miss something.

    It certainly has. I had a Muslim member try to tell me that slavery was a myth in the Sudan.

    I have periods of time when I don’t have the free time to always check the forum because of my work. But from what I am just now hearing about this I would have thought this should have been one of the more important rated issues posted. Makes a lot of our other problems seem minor.
