    Support escaped slaves in Mauritania

    Support for Mauritania


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     MountainMan8 is a student at West Virginia Univeristy and says he 'found it very disturbing and a little bit surprising to read how much a part of Mauritania's culture is slavery in this day and age. I truly believe that every person in entitled to live as they wish, regardless of race, sex, religion, or sexual orientation.'
    - dsashin, CNN iReport producer

    It is said that for evil to exist, the good must do nothing. Although we have made great strides towards equality as a race, there are still bleak parts of this world. We must unite against these unjust regimes, down to the very philosophy which blinds them. Without the acknowledgment of equality amongst our own species, we are destined for a circle of hatred that will one day devour us all.
