Tidiane N’Diaye is a Franco–Senegalese anthropologist, economist and writer.
He is the author of a number of publications on the history of Black Africa and the African diaspora, as well as numerous economic studies of the Institut national de la statistique et des études économiques on the French overseas departments (Guadeloupe, French Guiana, Martinique).
N’Diaye’s essays on the Arab slave trade (Le génocide voilé “the veiled genocide”, Étude de la traite négrière arabo-musulmane “study of the Arab-Muslim negro slave trade”) were nominated for the Prix Renaudot in 2008.
“…the worst part is that most of the enslaved were castrated…
The Arabs and the North Africans were racists. They despised the Black people. Which is why they didn’t allow them to have any children in their countries.
…this enslavement happened in the name of Allah. The Koran has never inhibited slavery. On the contrary, many passages in the Koran encourage the enslavement of non-Muslims. There has never been a single Arab intellectual who has advocated the cause of Blacks…
Through Islamization, African kings became accomplices (to the enslavement of blacks)”
