TIMBUKTU, Mali Her light-skinned master no longer beats her with a camel whip. He no longer makes her work from dawn to night without pay. He fled with his family four months ago, along with the Islamists who briefly ruled this historic city.
I am free, said Aminaya Traore, a 50-year-old woman who was born into slavery. I can do whatever I want.
Across this sand-swept city, hundreds of modern-day slaves are experiencing a sense of liberation, many for the first time. Nearly all the lighter-skinned Tuaregs and Arab Moors who for generations exploited them have fled the city, fearing reprisal attacks for supporting supporting the Islamists or the Tuareg separatists whose rebellion helped ignite the Islamist takeover of Malis north last year.

Oh, we know why.
She might beat Hillary in 2016. Tremendous story of triumphing over adversity. Very hard to top that.
I wonder if they still castrate the male slaves as they did for centuries?
Shhh. The feminists might get ideas.
Under the Islamists, blacks were exploited even more by the pink-skinned people, said Roukiatou Cisse, a social worker with Temedt, a human rights group, referring to the Tuaregs and Arab Moors.
Now, the slaves have profited by the pink-skinned people leaving.
The pink-skinned people wanted to bring back the old way of slavery, said Traore, the former slave.
The people refer to themselves by skin color. After the Islamists, who come from light skinned tribes to the north, came to town light skinned people in town felt entitled to take slaves.
I’ve never seen a Tuareg who was “pink-skinned” but them again I haven’t seen them neked.
However, you don’t ride a camel au naturel in the desert unless you want to become a human lobster.
Back in the day, that's exactly what happened. It was literally cheaper to embark on raids for fresh slaves than to feed existing slaves adequately. These days, large scale slave raids would result in UN intervention. So they do a cross between chattel slavery and old-style Arab slavery (males are castrated and worked to death, but paid nominal amounts for their services).
In the new style slavery, slaves are paid nominal mounts but no longer castrated. Because castrated slaves can’t beget new slaves.
they are doing it because the arabs do it the lighter your skin tone the higher your status like when my bro brought my nephew over to egypt all those people wanted to touch the nephew cause touching a white blue eyed baby brought you good luck
Maybe they should ask the liberated slaves how they felt about pink skinned but mostly brown eyed French troops being their liberators.
Got one in the White Howse right now.
Indeed, one of the victims who bravely gave evidence in court told a newspaper afterwards that the men exclusively wanted white girls to abuse.
But as so often in fearful, politically correct modern Britain, there is a craven unwillingness to face up to this reality. Commentators and politicians tip-toe around it, hiding behind weasel words...... But all this is deluded nonsense. While it is, of course, true that abuse happens in all communities, no amount of obfuscation can hide the pattern that has been exposed in a series of recent chilling scandals, from Rochdale to Oxford, and Telford to Derby. In all these incidents, the abusers were Muslim men, and their targets were under-age white girls.
So, it's like an internship?
An Australian mullah made a very controversial statement about how women who did not wear the covering were like a dish of uncovered meat, if the cat eats the meat, you can’t blame the cat for eating uncovered meat. Women who do not dress in the Islamic way are uncovered meat and therefore are there for the taking.
A Muslim woman on an Arab tv show actually said that the Muslims should steal women from non-Muslim countries such as Russia and force them into sex slavery so that Muslim husbands could have their sex slaves so that they would not be tempted to commit adultery. You can’t make this stuff up.
One of the Saudi princes murdered a male sex slave in a London hotel. He was captured on tape beating the man in an elevator.
Now arm them or they will be slaves again the minute the ragheads return.
The race gambit is a tired attempt to deflect the discussion from a religion (Islam) followed by people representing all “colors,” and “race,” which is not an area where Islam has a pristine track record, if the ignorami who write for the MSM would realize, if they did any serious research.
To call someone a “racist” for critiquing Islam is so absurd as to be risible.
Terrific. Another touching tale of the blessings of “The Religion of Peace,” so named by former President Bush, and, thereafter, repeated my many others.
