How did African-Americans arrive in America?
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
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.

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
by 5000 BC ...Educate yourself
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
