Abed (, plural Abeed عبيد or El Abeed العبيد) is a derogatory term in Arabic meaning " slave" and is usually applied as an insult to people of the Negroid race. The name has been explained as an allusion to the submission that Muslims owe to Allah. Meyer dismisses this as "efforts by propagandists [to] explain the term away [that are] at the least, disingenuous".
