It’s okay if they’re not white?
There has been a lot of talk in the media, online and especially in our schools about how terrible white males are because of the transatlantic slave trade. It was sold to us as the worst slave trade in history and is still being sold to us as something our children and grandchildren should always be shamed of.
We are even being told that anti-white rhetoric from our media and college professors is okay because ‘you can only be racist if you’re white.’ Many times when white Americans object to the constant attacks, the transatlantic slave trade is likely brought up. Professors nowadays aren facing zero repercussions for calling for ‘white genocide’ and tweeting that ‘having a white family is supporting racism.’
Well here are the facts…
The transatlantic slave trade is dwarfed by the lesser known Arab slave trade. Comparing both of these side by side is like a pit-bull standing next to a chihuahua. The pit-bull being the Arab slave trade. Sure the transatlantic slave trade was a terrible atrocity that should never be forgotten in history, but the Arab slave trade was deemed the ‘African holocaust‘ for a reason.
The Arab slave trade, across the Sahara desert and across the Indian Ocean, began after Muslim Arab and Swahili traders won control of the Swahili Coast, you know “colonialism.” They took control of the sea routes during the 9th century (see Sultanate of Zanzibar). These traders captured Bantu peoples (Zanj) from the interior in present-day Kenya, Mozambiqueand Tanzania and brought them to the coast. There, the slaves gradually assimilated in the rural areas, particularly on the Unguja and Pemba islands.
Some historians assert that as many as 17 million people were sold into slavery on the coast of the Indian Ocean, the Middle East, and North Africa, and approximately 5 million African slaves were bought by Muslim slave traders and taken from Africa across the Red Sea, Indian Ocean, and Sahara desert between 1500 and 1900. The problem is this slave trade never ceased. It is still happening today.
