Bondage

Bill Johnson Asif Saied
How is it possible to treat another human being with respect and dignity and yet hold them in bondage?
The only honest answer is they cannot and anyone who say’s otherwise are just trying to make a pathetic excuse to ease their guilty conscience.
The American slave trade could never have existed for the length of time or to the extent that it did without the provision of slaves to the Americas from Africa.
History provides all the evidence that is needed to show that the majority of the original slaves that were shipped out of Africa and across the Atlantic to the Americas were all provided by Arab and native African slave merchants who were widespread throughout Arabia and Africa.
So if it’s frowned upon within Islam to own a slave you must agree that those owners of human flesh who you say curl their brow must know that’s it’s immoral to own a slave.
But there maybe another reason for the Islamic frown. 
Could it be because the slave’s work is not productive enough and is not coming up to the standards required by the slave owner to make a decent profit from the sweat off the brow of his chattel.
