Mauritania Wins Bronze Medal In Racial Profiling

Mauritania Wins Bronze Medal In Racial Profiling

Nouakchott : Mauritania | Aug 09, 2012 at 4:47 PM PDT

Since this small African country will never win an actual Olympic medal, I decided to give them the bronze in racial profiling.

Slavery was finally deemed illegal by the Mauritanian Parliament only five years ago. A poll recently done by CNN claims that around three hundred thousand to seven hundred thousand of the 3 1/2 million that live in Mauritania still remain in some sort of slavery.

The Arabs in the country enslave those who are of African descent. Everything in life goes in cycles. The Arabs were the ones that started the African slave trade through the influence of Mohammed in the 8th century AD. Now, the Arabs must be the last ones to end slavery of those of African descent. Nobody should copy Mohammed.
