THEY WERE TRANSPORTED TO THE NEW WORLD IN THE 1600'S (DUMMIES)Actually, the earliest Africans to arrive in the"New World" were transported by the Portugese and Spanish as early as the first decades of the 1500's when they were purchased from Arab and Bedouin traders (in Africa)to be taken to colonies in the West Indies, South America (the area now known as Brazil) and to the Spanish held lands now known as Mexico. In fact, the first Africans brought to Jamestown (the first permanent English colony in the Americas) were actually removed from a Portugeses slave ship that was intercepted by an English privateer (aka: pirate) vessel on its way to the West Indies. AND, Africans were not the only people to be enslaved. Check your facts....if nothing else, look up 'slavery' on the will probably find more information than you want and you might even learn something. TRY THIS: {for a start}
