The initial Africans first set foot in the continent of America

during or round about the age of the Egyptian Dynasties (btw

3100-2100 BC). According to recent study, it was deduced that they

embarked on commerce voyages to and fro the continent supplying the

channels with salt and precious metals. It is suggested that there

was a great connection with the "Olmec" civilisation of Mexico.

The most recent migration was forced upon them during the

hollocausts of the 16-18th Century which became known as the slave

trade. African people were sold into slavery and transported by way

of force into American South in 1619, by the European traders.

Hundreds were cramped into the large ships, and endured hideous

conditions.

The Spanish began slave trading in the West Indies in the 1600's.

Then a British Company got into it and bought, kidnapped and sold

the African people into bondage under the approval of Queen

Elizabeth who only ask if any of them were 'taken against their

will' and the answer was no that they were basically doing them a

favor by introducing them into civilization.

They were brought by ship to be slaves on plantations and

factories. African Americans came to America because they were

either kidnapped or purchased from

brought their from tribes that owned slaves.

Don't listen to the 1st guy, he obviously was breast feed by his

father! I qoute... " The Spanish began slave trading in the West

Really...

Everything you said was true... except for the last part my

friend.. Introducing them to civilization, wow... You do realize

that the Sumerians introduced THE 1st CIVILAZTION....EVER back in

3rd early millennium B.C. and earlier.

The cities of Sumer were the first civilization to practice

You and many others need to face the reality of things. Most

things that whites THINK they came up with or introduced someone to

something.. You haven't, nor are you the first to devise it. Early

Blacks had the 1st civilization, the 1st to devise agriculture.

While whites were living in caves... aka cave men, Blacks were

living in a huge ass city, that had drinking lounges, music halls,

medicine shops, hospitals.. etc .. This is just something like most

has been kept from you since birth, odd thing is you are actually

taught about the Sumerians in school its just no one ever

references them as being black. Sorta of like how early Egyptians

are perceived, they also were early black. Cleopatra was not black,

Julius Caesar even describes her as the Nubian Queen.

WTF up America....seriously

African Americans arrived in America from the slave trade. They

were bought and sold as slaves for cheap labor to maintain their

crops or any or services someone required. At the time they were

considered "lesser" than white people.

they traveled by slave ships all the slave would be at the bottom

of the ship and then the Americans would be controlling the

ship.
