Liberals will squeal at the sound of this, but historians are unanimous; Africa was the first to practice slavery. They also were the last to ban it.

The first society to practice slavery of whites was of course Ancient Egypt, who enslaved the jews and minority caucasian group to serve them in labor. This evolved into a slave trade that spread across Africa and the middle east.

The height of African oppression of whites was in 1551, when African slavers committed what today would be considered genocide against the entire population of the Mediterranean isle of Gozo, enslaving over 5000 men, women, and children.

Wreaths have been laid on a newly-inaugurated monument in Victoria, Gozo, to recall the 1551 Ottoman attack on Gozo which resulted in practically the whole population being carted off to slavery. The brief ceremony was held yesterday just outside the Citadel. The successful siege on the poorly defended island had ended on July 26, 1551. Wreaths were laid by Gozo Minister Anton Refalo and Fr Joe Vella Gauci, Malta’s ambassador to Unesco. Dr Refalo said an annual commemoration would be held to recall what had gone down in history as Gozo’s worst tragedy. The new monument, at the entrance of the Citadel, was designed by John Grima. A concert to recall the 1551 event will be held at the Citadel ditch on Saturday at 8.30pm. THE ATTACK The Ottoman force attacked Gozo after having run into stiff resistance in Malta. The force under Sinan Pasha bombarded what then was a weak citadel. Gozo governor Gelatian de Sessa attempted to negotiate with Pasha but his overtures were rejected. The citadel capitulated and just under 6,000 people were taken to slavery in Tripoli. About 300 Gozitans escaped by climbing down the walls. The Ottomans only spared some 40 elderly Gozitans. The tragedy is also recalled in Victoria with a street named after Bernardo Dupuo, who, according to legend fought the Ottomans and killed his wife, his two daughters and then himself, rather than fall into slavery.
African slave trader shows off a white european captured and brought to Barber for sex slavery

The Barbers of North Africa terrorised Europe for centuries, leading to the feudal era of Europe where villages crowded around Lords for protection from African raiders.

Ohio State University history Professor Robert Davis describes the White Slave Trade as minimized by most modern historians in his book Christian Slaves, Muslim Masters: White Slavery in the Mediterranean, the Barbary Coast and Italy, 1500–1800. Davis estimates that 1 million to 1.25 million white Christian Europeans were enslaved in North Africa, from the beginning of the 16th century to the middle of the 18th, by slave traders from Tunis, Algiers, and Tripoli alone (these numbers do not include the European people which were enslaved by Morocco and by other raiders and traders of the Mediterranean Sea coast),[3] and roughly 700 Americans were held captive in this region as slaves between 1785 and 1815.
