Were the moors black?

I keep hearing this a lot.

The moors enslaved europeans way before europeans ever bothered with the tarns Atlantic slave trade.

So either you deny them as your genetics and europeans were the original slavers.....

or you accept that Africans got what they deserved....

Im not realy going to play the supremacy card with this one...

I just want to put the argument to bed so we can accept a truth and move on.

they never "enslaved Europe" . The Moors, who were NOT negroes, but arabic, Berber,Punic, Vandal and Syrian moslems, only succeeded in taking Spain, and not even all of that. Even today, Moroccans are NOT negroes, and in fact, give negroes quite a hard time.

From what I have read in this book...

http://www.amazon.co.uk/The-History-Pirates-A...

Moors were both black and Arab.

Mainly Arab....

Leading me to believe the moors were ruled mainly by Arabs but had blacks working for them.

But on this forum many say the moors were black like African Americans.

North Africans are not indigenous to North Africa, they came from Spain.

Africa belongs to Africans.

Proposed migrations between North Africa and neighboring regions have included Paleolithic gene flow from the Near East, an Arabic migration across the whole of North Africa 1,400 years ago (ya), and trans-Saharan transport of slaves from sub-Saharan Africa. Historical records, archaeology, and mitochondrial and Y-chromosome DNA have been marshaled in support of one theory or another, but there is little consensus regarding the overall genetic background of North African populations or their origin and expansion. We characterize the patterns of genetic variation in North Africa using ~730,000 single nucleotide polymorphisms from across the genome for seven populations. We observe two distinct, opposite gradients of ancestry: an east-to-west increase in likely autochthonous North African ancestry and an east-to-west decrease in likely Near Eastern Arabic ancestry. The indigenous North African ancestry may have been more common in Berber populations and appears most closely related to populations outside of Africa, but divergence between Maghrebi peoples and Near Eastern/Europeans likely precedes the Holocene (>12,000 ya). We also find significant signatures of sub-Saharan African ancestry that vary substantially among populations. These sub-Saharan ancestries appear to be a recent introduction into North African populations, dating to about 1,200 years ago in southern Morocco and about 750 years ago into Egypt, possibly reflecting the patterns of the trans-Saharan slave trade that occurred during this period.

Keep your stupid shît to yourself and go back to Spain.
