"How did slaves make it to these coastal forts? The historians John Thornton and Linda Heywood of Boston University estimate that 90 percent of those shipped to the New World were enslaved by Africans and then sold to European traders. The sad truth is that without complex business partnerships between African elites and European traders and commercial agents, the slave trade to the New World would have been impossible, at least on the scale it occurred."

Well, it's only fitting that white America would get its greatest Boule Negro to once again recast our history(ourstory).
And you have to appreciate their timing! Done when Black talk radio has been desimated on FM and AM, and Gil Noble's "Like it Is" is no longer on the air, so that Dr Molefi Asante, and Dr Marimba Ani, Runoko Rashidi and Ashwa Kweisi can refute him in public with the facts

I'm Black on Destee, I feel at home! It's been a while! Soooo in 2004 I married my Senegalese Husband, when I first went to Senegal, I loved, it! The people were hospitable and my husband's family was very kind! Well I've been there many times now, have taken African Americans, well over 150 and it has been an amazing experience!
