When the Dutch trading ships started showing up in Africa, warring tribes started capturing and selling their neighbors rather than killing them. Many of the Africans would h…ave been killed if it hadn't been for the slave traders. Resources were scarce, so often tribes would compete for the limited food resources that were produced by the land. Many of the traders asked, "Why kill a competitor if you can get food or goods in exchange for a capable worker?" By many, slavery was considered to be worse than death. Their enemies had sold them into a fate that caused more harm to more people than if they had continued with their old methods. It was definitely a low point in human history. they used African slaves to work off their debt and to work on big plantations for rich white farmers.
Merchants from the ancient west African kingdom of Ghana prospered by controlling the trade of which goods?

You ferment molasses like beer. then when it is finished you distill it using a pot still it must be a pot still to retain the flavour. when the distilate is collected i…t is diluted to 40% or 80 proof. this is then white rum. usually a foul tasting spirit. either use rum essence to flavour it or leave it in a glass container for a year. this will make bacardi. or age in an oak barrel for 4-7 years to make golden rum. IMPORTANT - when distilling throw the first 100-150ml away this is methanol and will make you blind! It is illegal to distill alcohol in the UK and other places so check with local law enforcement first. (Having tried i would say its easier to buy it) Good look Oliver
African rulers played a large part in the supply of slaves for the slaving captains to buy to take over the Atlantic. Without those African rulers supplying slaves, the Transa…tlantic slave trade would not have been nearly so big. Don't forget that slavery still goes on in many parts of the world, but not the Transatlantic slave trade. i like pie as in cookies n' cream pie.
the africans played a big part in the supply of gold.
African merchants contributed to the Atlantic slave trade development by serving as middle men. They also created new slave trade routes to avoid rulers who were opposed t…o the slave trade.
Merchant trading is when you buy for less and sell for more. Like buying a T.V. for $500 and waiting a while and selling it for like $1000-$2000. You make a profit. That… is called merchant trading

This is one of those jokes that needs a proper straight line to facilitate the punch line. I believe your question should be: What were the headlines after a midget fortune… teller escaped police custody? The answer you are expecting would be: Short Medium at Large.
