  1. It is not just a refreshing honest look at slavery but also at colonization by Europe, the European nations did a lot of good during the colony period as well as doing bad things. Both subjects are complicated and there is no easy answer of evil or good?

    • Both subjects are complicated and there is no easy answer of evil or good?

      There is one answer and, although not explicitly stated by M. Ndiaye, he worthily manages to distinguish (however obliquely) a central truth. Namely:

      It is meaningless to view history through the lens of modern morality.

      This is one of Liberalism’s decisive failings and constitutes a large part of the slipshod foundations used in arguments made by today’s Social Justice Warriors. Such that, the farther back in time one goes, the more meaningless this sort of moralizing becomes. Even a single century can erode almost all relevance from observations made in this manner.

      In the most immediate context, M. Ndiaye represents a splinter group of scholars that struggle to unmask the monumental hypocrisy of modern minorities who seek to lay pandemic dysfunctionality in Third World countries at the feet of all Caucasians in Europe and America.

      Time and again, this ridiculous pretense is used to lash unwary Liberals into blubbering, self-flagellating apologists for their mere presence on earth.

      The profound hypocrisy involved most frequently manifests in three different-but-similar ways.

      — Black people converting to and extolling Islam even as they strenuously ignore how—as M. Ndiaye makes so clear—Muslim slavers ravaged many African cultures to the point of near-annihilation.

      — Feminists and homosexuals fulminating about the iniquities of Caucasian Western culture (especially historic offenses—is there a pattern emerging here?) all the while remaining deafeningly silent about how Islam would like nothing better to rape them all (males included) and kill every last gay there is.

      — Interminable squealing by modern day Muslims about Islamophobia and portraying themselves as perpetual victims amid the most deliberate obfuscation of Islam’s almost unbroken track record of violent predation upon and obliteration of every adjacent culture.

      Again, is there a pattern emerging here? Sincere congratulations to M. Ndiaye for his courage in challenging the accepted narrative and seeking to set the (much distorted) historical record straight.

      • Brilliantly put, NorseRadish.

        The wears of blackface and blackhearts are oblivious to blacksouls. The Left accusing others of themselves.

        The rest of humanity, just tries to improve themselves and not be dominated by these low-life.

          Thank you very much, Perfectchild. Your praise is sincerely appreciated. Kudos to Eeyore as well for his efforts to expose this fundamental duplicity on the part of Social Justice Warriors, Blacks, Feminists, homosexuals, and—last, but indubitably not least—Muslims and their ideological filth.

          As one of this site’s stalwart contributors, your kind words are doubly meaningful to me.

          PS: Please let me know what you think of my mainline comment (once Eeyore gets through “moderating” it). All the best to you and yours.

            • I am grateful for your kind words, Johnnyu.

              Please make sure to stick around. I’m working on a humdinger of an article about the current (Chinese-manufactured) Asian crisis. Using an ice-pick to scratch “MADE IN CHINA” into the paint job of this latest, contrived heap of steaming-taurine-fecal-matter doesn’t even begin to adequately assign proper blame.

              Again, thank you.

              I mean, after all, who else in the Northeast Asian quadrant has even a fraction of China’s capability to fabricate this sort of geopolitical mare’s nest?

  2. While making many vital and laudable points, M. Ndiaye lamentably omits mentioning some of Islam’s most egregious crimes against humanity. As an example:

    — Slave ships crossing the Transatlantic “Middle Passage” between West Africa and the Americas typically saw a 15% mortality rate.

    — Muslim slavers who force-marched their captives overland to the Arabian Peninsula settled for a 15% SURVIVAL RATE. Straggling or otherwise hindering individuals were either summarily executed or simply left to perish in the Sahara desert.

    — When these in-transit fatalities are taken into account, M. Ndiaye’s estimate of 17 million enslaved by Islam abruptly skyrockets to somewhere around 100 million victims. By comparison, Europe’s and the America’s total number of around ten million slaves suddenly becomes close to a rounding error.

    From: 10 Facts About The Arab Enslavement Of Black People Not Taught In Schools

    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.

    Arab Enslavers Practiced Genetic Warfare

    The Arab slave trade typically dealt in the sale of castrated male slaves. Black boys between the age of 8 and 12 had their scrotums and penises completely amputated to prevent them from reproducing. About six of every 10 boys bled to death during the procedure, according to some sources, but the high price brought by eunuchs on the market made the practice profitable.

    Arab Slave Trade Not Limited To Africa or Skin Color

    One of the biggest differences between the Arab slave trade and European slaving was that the Arabs drew slaves from all racial groups. During the eighth and ninth centuries of the Fatimid Caliphate, most of the slaves were Europeans (called Saqaliba), captured along European coasts and during wars.

    Aside from those of African origins, people from a wide variety of regions were forced into Arab slavery, including Mediterranean people; Persians; people from the Caucasus mountain regions (such as Georgia, Armenia and Circassia) and parts of Central Asia and Scandinavia; English, Dutch and Irish; and Berbers from North Africa.

    From: Islamic Slavery and Racism

    While Muslim propagandists have exploited the legacy of slavery in the United States to win black converts, slavery in the Muslim world began long before the United States and ended a century later.

    President Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation in 1862. By contrast, Saudi Arabia only abolished slavery in 1962. That same year Yemen abolished slavery and the United Arab Emirates abolished slavery a year later.

    Saudi Arabia’s ruling family did not embark on this course out of the goodness of their hearts, but [instead] under pressure from President Kennedy, at a time when the House of Saud did not yet have the United States economy and its foreign policy in a headlock. The abolition of slavery was a compromise. Kennedy had wanted representative government and civil rights. He had to settle for a belated emancipation.

    It merits noting that, almost without exception, Islamic nations were the very last to abolish slavery. Equally important is recalling that Islam routinely uses taqiyya to burnish its own self-image. Remember this article from just yesterday?

    8 UAE princesses stand trial in Belgium for ‘continually abusing’ servants

    Please keep in mind that all Muslims regard Mohammad as al-Insan al-Kamil (i.e., the perfect man) and, therefore, worthy of emulation in every way. This pretext is used to support terrorism, rationalize the taking of child brides, commit rape and sexual enslavement, and remains a continuing justification for modern slavery—taqiyya notwithstanding. A substantial portion of contemporary Western court cases involving slavery routine feature Muslim abusers.

    Go figure.

  3. A thread or two back Eeyore remarked on President ‘Mad-Moh-Squared’ of Somalia and the paltry scraps from the KSA.
    Poor old Mohamed Abdullahi Mohamed.
    Muhammad ‘Abdul’ – black/-slave– Muhammad.
    In all its variants, “abed” means both ‘black’ and ‘slave’.

    I greatly admire this serious African historian. Western universities should be in a bidding war to attract him as visiting professor. I bet they aren’t though.
