Surly you can find a better authority than a European and a video in a foreign language! The english is hard to read.
The Number of People Enslaved The number of people enslaved by Muslims has been a hotly debated topic, especially when the millions of Africans forced from their homelands are considered. Some historians estimate that between A.D. 650 and 1900, 10 to 20 million people were enslaved by Arab slave traders.
Others believe over 20 million enslaved Africans alone had been delivered through the trans-Sahara route alone to the Islamic world. Dr. John Alembellah Azumah in his 2001 book, The Legacy of Arab-Islam in Africa estimates that over 80 million Black people more died en route.
Tru dat! So why is Louis Farrakhan, and others, still promoting Islam as the solution to white domination? The Arabs are white and racist also!!! "The Arabs institutionalized slavery, and the Europeans internationalized it", Dr. John Henrik Clarke.
That is the key question. I have not researched it too deeply but according to Dr. Clarke, Farrakhan was getting funding from wealthy Arabs in order to promote Islam.
There is multitudes of instances of slavery in this age of man...the fact is that in modern-day history no other form of slavery has been as savage,brutal and heartless as the one propagated in the triangular trade...let us not fight with other people of color who feel the same whip of the caveman as we do...
This was not really about NOI. To me it is about exploring this ugly history in its totality.
Tru dat! That's common knowledge to those of us who read. You must be a reader! Have you read "The Destruction of Black Civilization" by Chancellor Williams? According to Dr. Clarke, the Arabs offered Malcolm X two and a half million dollars to join Orthodox Islam. Of course Malcolm X refused!!! Which is why I don't understand how the integrationist can claim Malcolm X changed into an integrationist, after his return from Mecca. Wishful thinking uh man?
Beware of "the paralysis of analysis"! Its way past time too act. "Its better to act and make mistakes, than not to act for fear of making mistakes".
"people of color" didn't experience "the same whip" as we did! Look up the word chattle in chattle slavery. It will give you a better understanding of what we were reduced to, i.e. PROPERTY! People of color were never so defined.
