    How the trans-Atlantic trade directly affected Africa...

    "Politically ambitious men in matrilineal societies, such as the Yao of East Africa, used females slaves as a means of attracting male followers and as a means of developing junior patrilineages in order to gain control over their own offspring.Female slaves further encouraged the development of patriarchy and polygyny."

    "The crisis African states faces was, however, eased by the gradual decline in demand for African slaves in the Americas and by the coincident expansion of demand for slave labor in Africa itself."

    http://www.bartleby.com/67/1506.html

    What this exposes is far from what is usually asserted concerning the european and arabic/islamic (external) force for the breakdown of African KINGDOMS, which focuses on "racial" aspects, but highlights the CLASS CONRADICTIONS (internal) within African KINGDOMS which had been rising since the early Empire building stage which consolidated and expanded borders, but depleted Africa of its labor force, which prevented Africa from ,aomtaining its position of power within an international Industrial revolution, and these contradictions are what made possible the colonization of Africa on a continental basis.
