    You don't think the Muslims are the primary culprits here? And White People and Christians bought their slaves from Muslim slave traders. Unlike what Alex Haley tried to bullshit you with white people did not go into the jungle and capture slaves. Slaves were bought and sold at the slave market and many of those had been slaves for long periods of time

    There are an estimated 57,700 people in modern slavery in the US, according to GSI estimates.

    https://www.globalslaveryindex.org/c...united-states/

    The estimate for the UK is 13,000.

    So ((57,700-11,700)/57,700))x100 = Slavery in USA is 353.8% greater than the UK.

    That site doesn't really work very well for your America-bashing purpose. The population of the US is rather larger than that of the UK. So, doing a little math,

    UK population, 64.856M; estimated UK slaves, 13,000: (13,000) / (64.856M) = 200.444 slaves per million people

    US population, 320.821M; estimated US slaves, 57,700: (57,700) / (320.821M) = 179.851 slaves per million people

    Slavery in the US is not "353.8% greater than the UK". When the two very different population sizes are considered slavery is actually worse per capita in the UK.

    Bad math screws up moral equivalency arguments.

    But USA have 353.8% more slaves than the UK, in every town and city.

    You could have a population of a million, a billion or a trillion; America has 353.8% more slaves than the UK. Whatever ratio it is to population, buses or underpants; America has 353.8% more slaves than the UK.

    Who owns these slaves in the United States? Are they still growing cotton in Alabama?

    I just read your link. Basically its bullshit and a guesstimate based on some concocted formula. No one knows how many "slaves" there are in the US or the UK but since it sounds good we are supposed to believe a website no one has ever heard of before.

    nonsense...

    In the absence of nationally representative survey data, this estimate is based on extrapolation from the limited data points available on the prevalence of modern slavery in highly developed countries. Mathematical modelling of the factors that make individuals vulnerable to modern slavery confirms that the United Kingdom and the United States have a similar risk profile. Hence, as no nationally representative surveys have been undertaken in the United States, the UK proportion was applied to the U.S following our established extrapolation method.


    as shown in your own link...

    extrapolated from uk figures which are conveniently missing...

    nonsense...and your link does not support your contentions...

    the numbers are extrapolated from uk numbers which are not given...

    and the 13% claim you pulled out of where?

    what?

    you think we wouldn't read your link?

    think again..

    not to mention [but i will anyway] the link is from a pro-migration group...



    We estimate there are 40.3 million people in modern slavery.

    Learn more about the 2017 Global Estimates of Modern Slavery, produced by the Walk Free Foundation and International Labour Organization, in partnership with the International Organization for Migration.

    That left a mark! The UK figures on the site are easily found, https://www.globalslaveryindex.org/c...nited-kingdom/ . But the figures for the US are totally made up, pulled out of some one's @$$!

    The US and the UK are not homogeneous. The US never had colonies comparable to those the UK had in Africa, the Middle East and southern Asia. Those former colonies are the source of many thinks in the UK, from curry restaurants to the Muslim "men" who groom, rape, and pass around under age girls (race and religion are elements in choosing their targets). Obama's, Bush's and Clinton's "refugee" policies were steps toward similar effects, but the UK's situation started developing nearly 2 centuries ago (2 centuries' head start). Based on reports I've read of traffickers being arrested here many traffickers are legal immigrants of non-European ethnic background illegally "importing" girls (and boys?) of the same ethnic background to "service" "customers" largely of the same ethnic background. Quite different from what has been exposed in the UK.

    This is so hilarious I have to repeat it: the figures for the US on that site are totally made up, pulled out of some one's @$$!
