If it's not obvious to you, I will leave this.
The Arab or Middle Eastern slave trade continued into the early 1900s, and by some accounts continues to this day. Slavery in Morocco was outlawed in the 1930s. As recently as the 1950s, Saudi Arabia had an estimated 450,000 slaves, 20% of the population. It is estimated that as many as 200,000 black south Sudanese children and women (mostly from the Dinka tribe sold by the Sudanese Arabs of the north) have been taken into slavery in Sudan during the Second Sudanese Civil War. In Mauritania it is estimated that up to 600,000 men, women and children, or 20% of the population, are currently enslaved, many of them used as bonded labor. Slavery in Mauritania was criminalized in August 2007.

Well, after so many posts, one cannot say: it's a" hoax".
But, the OP does end his initial post with a startling message of some unknown group. I do wonder who that could be?

Muslims have every right in the world to practice what they believe, but they don't have a right to infringe on my God Given right to life or equality which the US is sworn to uphold as SELF-EVIDENT.
Just out of curiosity, who said that God gave you any right?

Religion is just a power game and the sooner people wake up to that fact the higher the consciousness will be of the collective.
