Now really? This illiterate drug mule converts to the ideology of the biggest African slave traders in human history, Arabs, and even changes his name to a Muslim sounding one while spewing about “crackers” who ended slavery and fought for the ban of slavery along with hispanics, asians, orientals. Slavery, it’s always about a trade that is not legal in the entire Western world today. Islam has never even wanted to end slavery and never even once fought for human rights or equality. Never once. It is pressure from the West that forced some Muslim countries to begin to, reluctantly, abolish slavery. However, only last year we posted an ad by an Arab in Saudi Arabia advertising his ‘black castrated slave’ for sale, which he had purchased and shipped over from Mauritania although Mauritania is suppose to have abolished slavery. Under Islam Muslims continue to enslave 27 million Africans even today.
This man must be dumber than a rock.
He doesn’t seem aware that African Kings sold 140 million of other Africans (from competing tribes and accused criminals) to Arabs to be exported as slaves to other parts of the Arab world. They earned tremendous wealth from this trade. The massive wealth that Africans and Muslim traders earned from the slave trade tempted others to follow suit. Before you knew it, the whole world was trading in people. This evil trade came to an end a long time ago except in Africa and some parts of the Middle East, where it continues to this day.
Black contribution to Africa: Charles Taylor, American descendant of slaves, returns to Africa and creates the most vicious militant movement that destroys the country from within:
Urban Directory: Cracker
Originally the white slave driver because he would “crack” the whip, hence the noun cracker.
Noun. Slang word used to refer to those of European ancestry. The word is thought to have either derived from the sound of a whip being cracked by slave owners, or because crackers are generally white in color.
opposite of nigger, an insult to whites… except white people aren’t dumb enough to walk around calling each other that word because it’s intended to be demeaning.
Racist term for a white person
