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:

Slavers look for a game and approach in the country where they're fighting a war.
Did a competition probably also cease the time Scandinavia?

Many men and women have been also sold by the Portuguese merchants to foreign countries in warlike ages in Japan.
Most of a slave is girlhoods and they seem to have been bought for South American people and African people and others at a sexual destination.

Japan closed the door to foreigners soon and cut off the relationships with Portugal and Spain.
Christian's Japanese officers were supporting slavers' work, so Japan also prohibited christianity.

The total number of the Japanese slave who existed at the time is called five hundred thousand people, but I think this is exaggerated.
We'll be tens of thousands of at most.

The Japanese boys who had just founded a country and went to the United States are tricked, and can make an American sign Japan on a slave contract, and the case worked at an American farm has come out.
English can't be read well, so they have been tricked easily.
A person called Takahashi Korekiyo who was the one of "slave" went back to Japan and became the famous Chancellor of the Exchequer later.

Then 'Murica turns around and makes those blacks work on the farm. Ah, the cycle of discrimination.
