The rapes came soon after. Only one has been successful. That superiority also stirs fear and animosity toward the Afro-Mauritanians who want a fair share in government.
Various religions in many countries have been used to justify the continuation of slavery.

InAmnesty International reported that about 90, Haratins in Mauritania still lived as slaves, with reports suggesting that slavery was still widespread, especially within the traditional upper class of the Moors. But when we asked Yebawa about the moment he was freed, he was confused by the idea.
That point was made clear Mauritania book us in a meeting with the national director of audiovisual communications, Mohamed Yahya Ould Haye, who told us journalists who attempted to report on such topics were jailed or ejected from the country.
They are slaves, but they are not seen as disposable That reality permeates every aspect of Mauritanian life — from the dark-skinned boys who serve mint-flavored tea at restaurants to the clothes people wear.
