What's Wrong With This Picture?

You can hardly go a week without hearing about how terrible America still is because of its past record of slavery which ended, what, about 140 years ago, give or take. Nobody seems to give a hoot that slavery is still being practiced by ... guess who?

The Islamic government in Khartoum has sanctioned slavery as part of its declared jihad against Christians and others in the southern part of the nation.

I guess it doesn't fit the America bashing agenda.

85 boy slaves freed in Sudan

The freed slave boys were among the tens of thousands of black women and children who had been enslaved by Sudanese government-sponsored militias during two decades of civil war. All of the boys reported that they were forced to work without pay and were frequently beaten and subjected to racial insults.
