[THE EUROPEAN SLAVE INDUSTRY AND THE USE OF MIXED HERITAGE PEOPLE]
[DID AFRICANS SELL OTHER AFRICANS ?]
This question has been haunting me for ages and has led me to research into this matter more profoundly. And i have found my answers. I figured that if they lied about Kemet and every other african civilization in the world, why wouldn't they lie about this also ?
Most of the time, you hear about how africans allegedly sold their kinsmen into slavery and they make it sound like it was something natural to the african. Well, i am glad to say it is all nonsense. Let's research facts instead of mythology. I was
You have the image of a stronghold built by the English in Ghana current time of the slave trade and the guns stored show the military aspect of trafficking that explains a lot. Western historians tell us that came the traders came with European goods (pacotille, mirrors and ) to buy slaves to kings Africans that pretends to be finished idiots. If this trade was so so peaceful, why build strongholds ?
In reality, the slave trade was well planned.
As we say here, if Africa was superior economically, administratively and content of human rights, it was less strong militarily.
First, the European diplomatic contacts with African states and in doing so gained their trust. Second, they built forts on the coast armed states to submit. Those were used to store guns, guns, gunpowder, swords etc ... and finally began to politically destabilize states. The land policy was carefully studied and were looking for a king who wanted to expand its territory, a government that wanted power or a vassal king who sought to free themselves from oppressive supervision of a central authority.
This person was the object of attention and they would provide weaponry to generate conflicts with a foreign kingdom or against the central power, delivering prisoners of war in Europe in exchange for weapons. The kingdom or empire was attacked and in turn buy weapons for survival and he would deliver prisoners of war in exchange. Another way was to enter into direct war against the state and eliminate those who publicly refused to cooperate and arm those who accepted. Given their military inferiority, some states were forced to sign peace by providing their citizens. While pretending they would keep the prisoners of war in the forts for the warring states, the slaves ships would come at night and carry their ration of slaves to deport. A lot of African kings discovered this practice and tried to end but it was often too late already.
You are never told that througout the 500 years of terror on African soil, the Europeans fought at least 60 wars with different states to sudbue them. The English for example fought 7 wars with the Asante Empire before finally subduing it.
[THE USE OF MIXED ANCESTRY PEOPLE AS INFILTRATORS AND MIDDLE-MEN]
Another practice was the use of the people of mixed heritage. As they would rape the captured african women, they would use their offspring and train them to hate their african kinsmen. Hence a lot of people of mixed heritage were involved in the slave trade and served as middle men for the European enslavers. Sometimes, the europeans would go as far as murdering the reigning king and replacing them by a person of mixed ancestry. The portuguese mastered that art to the finest. This is why people of mixed heritage were rejected amongst the African people.
After losing 15,000 men strong, the king of Ndongo (Angola) predecessor of Queen Nzinga committed suicide facing the dilemma. Members of the government Kongo were captured and deported. The emperor Afonso Nzinga Mbemba the 1st escaped 15 terrorist attack staged by the Portuguese because he refused to cooperate. The West Africa (Senegambia, Guinea Bissau ...) and East Africa (Kilwa, Mozambique ...) were also destroyed in this cycle-gun war slaves. The number of prisoners of war experienced an exponential growth. The continent was ablaze.
African kings were also fooled. King of Allada (Benin) replied as follows to the French who ask permission to erect a factorie in 1670 "You will build a house you first put 2 small pieces of cannon, the following year you climb 4 and shortly your factorie will metamorphose into a fort that will make you the master of my state and abetting you impose on me your laws.
