Libya, I already know that this has been going on, even more since Gaddafi was murdered & Libya was destroyed by the USA. I’ve been to North Africa & experienced crazy racism. Study trans Saharan slavery as you do religion. The spread of Islam from Arabia into Africa after the religion's founding in the 7th century AD affected the practice of slavery & slave trading in West, Central, & East Africa. Arabs had practiced slave raiding & trading in Arabia for centuries prior to the founding of Islam, & slavery became a component of Islamic traditions. Koran 23:5-6 says: Allah the almighty said: '[Successful are the believers] who guard their chastity, except from their wives or (the captives & slaves) that their right hands possess, for then they are free from blame. As Muslim Arabs conquered their way westward across North Africa in the 7th & 8th centuries, their victorious leaders rewarded themselves with Berber captives, most of whom were eventually enrolled in Muslim armies. Over time, large segments of North Africa's Berber population converted to Islam. The religion spread to the camel herders of the Sahara Desert, who were in contact with black Africans south of the Sahara & who traded small numbers of black slaves. Muslim Arabs expanded this trans-Saharan slave trade, buying or seizing increasing numbers of black Africans in West Africa, leading them across the Sahara, & selling them in North Africa. From there, most of these slaves were exported to far-off Asian destinations such as the eastern Mediterranean, Anatolia (in present-day Turkey), Arabia, Persia (present-day Iran), and India.
The trans-Saharan slave trade grew significantly from the 10th to the 15th century, as vast African empires such as Ghana, Mali, Songhai, and Kanem-Bornu developed south of the Sahara and marshaled the trade. Arab slave raiders also penetrated south, up the Nile River to present-day Ethiopia, capturing thousands of slaves and sending them down the Nile to Egypt. Over the course of more than a thousand years, the trans-Saharan slave trade saw the movement of at least 10 million enslaved men, women, & children from West & East Africa to North Africa, the Middle East.
