This is a very sad case. According to the stats in these articles most prostitutes in europe are african women. maybe this is part of the reason africa has so many aids cases. How come i don't hear this mentioned on the news or on channel 8 like i do about asian and european girls being forced to prostitute themselves in other countries? I was watching channel 8 and they were doing a special on women and young girls who are trafficed into other countries for prostitution. The only groupos they focused on were european and asian women. it was disturbing to see that they never mention anything about the millions of young african girls ages 12 and up who are either kidnapped or tricked into europe with the promise of a good education or a good job only to end up prostituing themselves to married men. Although african girls are more likely to be placed in this position, none of them were mentioned on the subject. Just goes to show how little black life is valued. We are suppsoe to show sympathy for young asian and white girls who are tricked into being sex slaves but when it comes to african women people are like so what. Not only that but america would lvoe to spread the idea that no one finds black women attractive enough to even use them as prostitutes (which is as i understand the lowest thing a woman can be). Not to say in any way that prostitution is something to be proud of because it's really sadening. However, i'm jsut commenting on how racist our culture is.


anyway, i was reading aobut the issue on another site and here are some articles i saw on it



""Exotic" Looks Encourage Continued Trafficking of
Illegal Immigrants


In Italy, these women's accents and uncommon
complexions become desired commodities and they
quickly develop reputations for sexual appetite and
ardor."

"African women and girls today, are said to constitute
the bulk of women and girls presently in Europe.
Conservative estimates put the number of African women
in the trade to well over 500,000.

Nigeria women alone were said to constitute over 57
per cent of this figure. In fact, an estimated 10,000
Nigerian prostitutes were said to be in over 300 or
so, brothels in Germany, Spain, and other parts of
Europe and South America."

"According to a recent ILO report, an estimated 60
percent of prostitutes in Italy are from Nigeria."

"More than two-thirds of the 20,000 prostitutes roaming
the streets of French cities are from Africa,police in
France reported on Friday in statistics done by the
Central Board for the Suppression of Human Trade
The data revealed that African prostitutes mainly come
from Benin, Cameroon, Ghana, Nigeria and Sierra Leone."

"Trafficking from Nigeria is especially well organized, and centers around a female figure called "Mama" who plays a key role in persuading young women to leave their homes for Italy. "
