What? Jump on the fact that the Moors of North Africa call Blacks "abid" which means slaves?? They have been calling them this for at least 1,400 years.

You can see the actual descendants of the Moors who built Granada and Cordoba in places like Salé,Xuan,Rabat etc. They call themselves andalusi, have retained their own culture and want to go to Spain.

Just YouTube "Los hijos de al Andalus" amd "Los hijos de al Andalus eran blancos" I know these are videos made by Arabs and Spaniards but you can see what the MOORS LOOK LIKE

Not only do you sound racist but also in denial.
Why did most early writers only write of black moors?

Modern day Moors of North Africa are NOT the original Moors described by ancient and medieval Europeans as black skinned Africans.

They are the mixed offspring of the original inhabitants of North Wests Africa (who looked like Somali or the Beja of East Africa) and their Eurasian female partners, sex slaves, concubines or wives.

Abid is a word used Arabs for a Black African slave just like the word Saqaliba or Mameluke is used by Arabs for a European slave.

Abid means a Black African slave, like the Haratin of Mauritania.

Stop this nonsense of a fake Euro-centric or Arabo-centric version of His-tory of North Africa.

Eurasians and Arabs in North Africa are ancient settlers and invaders NOT aboriginal at all.

Millions of white looking North Africans are the descendants of Eurasians slaves known by different names: the Janissaries, the Mameluke, the Saqaliba and the Barbary slaves.

Racist Whites suffer from historical amnesia.

They have forgotten about North African (ancient and not so ancient) past, which told a different story of thousands of years of White slavery at the hands of powerful and noble dark brown skinned North Africa Africans.

Those dark brown skinned Africans were later replaced by invaders from West Asia and Eurasia

You clearly do not know north African history. You go all over the place and don't stick to the main point -the Moors in Spain. You haven't got a clue who they are. They were kicked out of Granada, Cordoba,Sevilla, but most of them kept their culture intact. They are in North Africa, desiring to go back to Spain and absolutely not black.

You're very confused. We are talking about the Moors in Spain. Janisseries and Mamelukes came in fact AFTER the Moors were kicked out of Spain and refer to the Ottoman Empire. The Ottomans were Turks (I hope you don't think that the Turks are Black!!! though I wouldn't put it beyond you!!)

"Abid" is the generic word for Blacks throughout North Africa NOW but it has been in use for more than a thousand years.

No one in North Africa refers to Whites or blondish Berbers as abid, Mamelukes or whatever. Abid is applied to Blacks, NOW.

You said "told a different story of thousands of years of White slavery at the hands of powerful and noble dark brown skinned North Africa Africans." Which precisely are these "thousands of years", what location (don't just say North Africa) and what are the names of these "noble North Africa Africans" and what languages did they speak?

Why do all Negrocentrics fabricate stories about Arabs removing Egyptians, Whites removing Moors, Mexicans removing Olmecs, White Greeks replacing "Black Greeks" etc. Can't you see how idiotic all these "removals" make you seem, even more than the absurd low IQ scores?

I keep repeating. We are talking about the Moors in Spain where the Moorish culture hsppened - not about Shakespears' plays, derived from Italy and acted in the US, nor about German softporn paintings 400 years later. We are referring to the Moors in Spain evidenced by paintings drawn at the time, and the descendants of the same Moors in Morocco where they kept their Andalucian culture, cuisine, architecture, names and are identified as such by everyone and who are clearly not black.

Now if you say that the Moors of Spain were black YOU PROVE that especially through paintings drawn at the time and also give us PROOF as to what happened to them and especially PROOF of their Andalusian culture.

You still did not answer me. If that is true then how come most writers (fiction or not)describe them as black?

These are all black moorish charcacters of early literature. Where are the mideastern moorihs characters of lit?
I mean if the moors were not black then it seem that early writers forgot all about the mideast moors.

White slavery in Africa and Asia is little known and hardly taught across the Western world regardless of whom were the slaveholders (the Turks, the Arabs, the Moors, the Egyptians etc..) and regardless of the names the White slaves were called: Saqaliba, Mameluk, Barbary slaves or janissaries.

You are lying about no one referring to Whites as Mamluke in North Africa.

Mameluk or saqaliba is an insult I have heard many times for a White person among Arabs.

I see you are still confused. We are talking about the Moors in Spain not about Turks and Mamelukes etc who had nothing to do with Moorish Spain (Incidentally I hope you are aware that the Turks are very much "unBlack" And if you want to call the Arabs black that's your problem)

The Moors of Spain were not black and the North Africans never were. Statues and mosaics of Berber kings in Roman times prove it. And the descendants of the Moors who were kicked out of Spain and still call themselves Andalusi would think you're mad if you say so. North Africans are not au fait with the PC complex. They just call a spade a spade and in this case they call black men "abid" or slaves, uninsultingly, because that is how they've always known them. You don't see a single token "black" man in the government ministerial line-up of any North African country. Basically North Africans have nothing to do with sub-Saharans. We know what happened to the immigrant Blacks in Libya after Ghadaffi was removed
