    Sorry but I believe as Muhammad Ali once said after returning from a match in Africa and being asked if he liked the place. His answer was “Thank God my granddaddy got on that boat!” and truer words have never been spoken. I am a United States Citizen same as my parents,grandparents, great grandparents, great great grandparents, and great great great grandparents as far back as records show. I’m as American as watermelon and fireworks in July!

  • Actually, you are the one misinformed.

    The first slaves in this particular slave trade *were* forcibly kidnapped. Trading with more “powerful” tribes came much later, after it became apparent that in order to take over the land and the people, deception, rather than sheer force, was needed.

    So you are wrong to say “That isn’t really how it happened” – when it is. It’s not all that happened, but it did happen.
