Quote Of The Day

“Facts that go against preconceived notions are likely to be ignored, even by many scholars. For example, slavery is an issue that is widely discussed as if it were something peculiar to Africans enslaved by Europeans, instead of something suffered and inflicted around the world by people of every race, color, and religion. Two books about a million European slaves taken to North Africa have been published in recent years. That is more than the number of African slaves brought to America. The books are “Christian Slaves, Muslim Masters” by Robert Davis and “White Gold” by Giles Milton. Both books have been largely ignored by the media and academia alike. Apparently scholars, as well as journalists, have made up their minds and don’t want to be confused by the facts”. —Thomas Sowell, in an article titled, Are Facts Obsolete?

  • “Two books about a million European slaves taken to North Africa have been published in recent years. That is more than the number of African slaves brought to America.”

    It is probably more than the number of African slaves brought to America, but not more than the number of African slaves brought to all parts of the world. I believe that number is about 12 million.
