The Slave trade     ( Menu LINK)     Mother Africa: Where Life First Began

 

Europeans needed slaves to build America, (why, were they to lazy to build America ) they went to Africa to get slave anyway they could. They used every trick in the book. Europeans would lie to the Chiefs of each tribe to cause conflict and anger. Made deals with the Chiefs, they would give one tribe guns to go to war, and take the losing tribe as slaves to America.                                                                                                                                                                    Home Page Link

Picture down below Europeans would give one tribe guns to fight the other tribe and make deals to take losing tribe as slaves to American. Africans had never experienced violence like this before Europeans came to Africa. Africans had never seen a gun before Europeans came.    (Please put pointer on Pictures)  Africans treking hundreds of miles to the slave market.  Africans at slave market in South African waiting for ships to pick them up.
