BLACK SOCIAL HISTORY: THE BRITISH ROLE IN THE SLAVE TRADE AND SLAVERY PART 1:
The Portuguese and Spanish Merchants back by their Kings and Queens were the earliest Slave Traders in this vile Trade of Human miseries and they must have shipped in Portugal case six millions Black Slave from Africa to their colonies in the New World, and the Spanish it is believed shipped about four million Black Slaves to their colonies in the New World. The first English man to get involved in the Slave Trade was the Captain John Hawkins who captured slaves in the west coast of Africa and sold them to the Portuguese in the New World. Thus began the British Slave Trade which will last for a few hundred years till its Absolution in 1807 when very good English men with God in their heart fought as the Absolutionist to end years of miseries for Black People in Africa and in all the British Colonies in their Empire and to crown it all they sent the Royal Navy Ships to take on the Slave Merchant at sea in the Slave Triangle to enforce the Law that no more Slave ships are allowed to buy or sell any Black Slaves from any were on this planet.
As a Maritime Nation with excellent ships, the British Sea men were second to none in the Slave Trade, as they established forts in Africa, East, West, South and would buy establish forts from the Danish and Swedish, and would fight the French, Dutch, Spanish and Portuguese for control of West Indian Island and in Africa and the North American Continent they establish with force when ever possible take over or buy out other Maritime Nation like the French, Dutch, Spanish and Portuguese. Once established they had to keep feeding the Colonies with fresh slaves from Africa and in so doing help to keep the Slave Trade going for a long long time.
