Sadly, slavery is ancient. Slavery has been know in every century in which the conquest and invasion of one nation has overtaken another.

The horrors of slavery are quite acceptable to the Biblical god. American slave owners used Leviticus 25:44-46 to justify owning other human beings.

>“‘Your male and female slaves are to come from the nations around you; from them you may buy slaves. You may also buy some of the temporary residents living among you and members of their clans born in your country, and they will become your property. You can bequeath them to your children as inherited property and can make them slaves for life, but you must not rule over your fellow Israelites ruthlessly."

Dr. Henry Louis Gates discussed slavery among African tribes in his documentary on Africa and was highly criticized for mentioning it. It shouldn't suprise anyone though. It seems no culture is immune to this disgusting practice. American Indigenous tribes also held captured enemy war slaves long before the Europeans showed up. Humans are horrible to each other sometimes.

Everyone was involved in the slave trade, blacks, whites, Muslims, pagans, christains, male and females.
