  5. This is what will happen to black americans if they don't get serious and stop partying and dancing.Nothing will happen until blacks world wide get up and fight and stop being passive thinking the caucasians are some sort of gods.

  6. ‘We’ve hurt murmurs about it’?! We’ve known that the slave trade NEVER stopped in Africa 🤷🏻‍♂️ There’s all kinda of videos showing that fact on the net already?!

  7. The libyan slave auction is related to the Atlantic slave trade like a prostitute to the Dept of Highways.

  8. How much of this is lies is the question; not on the journalists' part, but on the narrative presented to her by her on site guide.

  9. Starting a bank in the United States costs between $500,000 to $1 million. You will need a group of experienced bankers that pass an FBI background check and finally you will need to show that you have $10 to $30 million in capital to get your bank underway.

    Starting a bank offshore costs between $150,000 to $250,000 and requires $1 million in capital, depending on the jurisdiction. The capital acts as a safety cushion to help insure the safety of depositors.

  11. This is the 2019 just about 21 century u don't see any Moors enslaving people especially in North Africa, even when they did in the past. Moors don't dwell on slavery like they do (Arabs)

  12. The reason why the UN hasn’t gotten involved in is because there is nothing to get involved in. The only people who have actually seen “black slavery” going on in Libya are them some outsiders. Libya is full of different coloured people and no one has came out and said that there are black people being sold because it’s simply not true

  13. Weren't you dumb asses comprising CNN cheering on the "liberation" of Libya at the time, dip shits?

  16. The news today, complaining about….rhetoric yet Libya is hell right now to a lot of people. Speaks volumes about why the media deflects….as if we don't know why

  17. They are africans who are selling africans to africans , so slavery is internal problem among black communities.

  18. Doesn't matter what race or money we come from. We are all equal humans with same feelings and emotions. I am a South Korean born Canadian citizen. My heart thoughts and prayers are with you.

  19. Why was that lady not enslaved. She would have fetched a higher price. Is this slavery or extortion.

  20. The journalist is from Sudan. She is not shocked by slavery. She knows how Black Sudanese are treated and discriminated against in places like Syria, Lebanon, etc and elsewhere in the Arab world. Also, there is slavery going on in Sudan at this instant. She should go there and report that too. The reason why she was probably admitted is because they know that Sudanese Arabs have been enslaving those from the South in places like Darfur.
