White Slave


Yesterday they showed a program about the one million white slaves (of which three thousand were from Scandinavia) that were bought and sold in north Africa.

One of the stories was about a Danish boy who ended up being a slave for 12 years, and the other was about a group of Norwegian sailors that ended up on the slave market, and how the Danish state went into frantic negotiations with the owners to get them back. Most of the white slaves died, either from the hard labour, from being whipped to death or simply because they got deliberately killed by their owners, so the Danish state knew they couldn’t wait forever.

Three years later they finally managed to pay for the sailors, and they all returned home safely. :)

@Quartin: And should we kill everyone who buys slaves too? How about those people who make it impossible for slavers to feed their families in any way other than trading slaves? I'd think that responsibility lies with anyone wealthy enough who decides not to encourage any more humane businesses anywhere in the third world, as well as anyone who takes for themselves resources that could be used to keep any part of the third world in food, water and education. Should we kill them too? I'm sure if we kill enough people someone will get the hint and work to make the world better.

Yup, they also took people from Iceland. At the time, it was a big blow to our population. Only a few were bought back (by the Danes, because we belonged to the Danes back then, but the Danish king would only buy back those who had remained Christians, not the kids or adults who'd been made to convert).

And up until now, abuse like that, especially in Saudi Arabia, still goes on. <:'C

@bubba please remember they attacked so much more than Vestmannaey. We call it the Turk-abductions (tyrkjaránið) even though the Turks had nothing to do with it.
For those interested this explains it pretty well:

Should we really be qualifying it? Like does it being "white" slavery make it any different from any other kind, or colour, rather?

Also, I get how white folks, especially American white folks feel very guilty about having enslaved large parts of the world for a longer or shorter time, but does that really make it ok to pretend that slavery 'wasn't all that bad really'?
