How One Man Was Sold Into Libya’s Modern-Day Slave Trade

How One Man Was Sold Into Libya’s Modern-Day Slave Trade | INTELLIGENT WORLD TODAY | Scoop.it
Slavery is thriving in Libya, where thousands of black Africans hoping to get to Europe instead find themselves bought and sold, forced to work for nothing, and facing torture at the hands of their owners.
Al Cannistra's insight:

WARNING - One of the most disturbing stories we have shared to date.

.

BUY A SLAVE TODAY

.

"In a country where the word for black person, “abd,” literally means “slave,” he had no idea the strength on which he prided himself had a price here, judged to be between $200 and $400."

.

Personal message to all those in the USA who whine about 200 years ago, get off your ____ and do something about this. Put a stop to it.

Homework assignment asks students to list positive aspects of slavery

Homework assignment asks students to list positive aspects of slavery | INTELLIGENT WORLD TODAY | Scoop.it
A Texas charter school is apologizing after a teacher gave an assignment to an eighth grade American History class, asking students to list the positive aspects of slavery.
Al Cannistra's insight:

WHY APOLOGIZE - for asking about the positive benefits of slavery?

.

All the hubbub over what? And an example of why "teaching" is in trouble. The education system preferred today seems to prefer turning students into followers - not thinkers. I suppose that is a step toward world order. 

.

What is wrong with the "discussion" - so students themselves can learn what is wrong with it? What is wrong with reviewing history about it? What is wrong with exploring slavery outside the USA and teaching that slavery has been a part of humanity throughout history? How are kids to learn if they cannot examine and think thru it.

.

It would be sad if doctors in training cannot examine dead bodies and discuss what they learned. Slavery is a dead body!
