So are you done trying to make us all feel guilty in this thread? If not, I suggest you send in your reparations money (I'll give you the address) and leave us alone.

Unfortunately, your political agenda on "slavery" derailed what would have a been a useful thread on the new database, which can begin to provide some clues to heritage for African-Americans who trace their roots to Africa. I've researched and validated two lines of my ancestors back to the early 1600s and found it affirming as it was intriguing. I wish the same for the brothers.

The source is a good find Drew. It educated me to learn that the U.S. portion of the slave trade was so minor.

About "key"hole's question, it would then follow that we should enslave the rest of the African continent for their benefit

They have enough troubles.

You always had that luxury of tracing you lineage, they didn't!

As I see it, the African tribal leaders were the product suppliers. The Europeans were the shippers, and the American colonisers & early settlers were the end-users.

All were equally involved in the trade, and therefore all are equally guilty.

Now that is stretching the logic a little too far...

At the time, of course. It was diabolical.

Just as bad as the Vikings, raping & pillaging in Europe a thousand years ago. But we no longer point the finger of blame - even if we knew who to blame. It happened.

My point was - who today, amongst the many talented and qualified Afro-Americans would care to turn the clock back and return to Africa? Just about nobody...
