Some info on the slave traders from across the pond.

A History of the Colony of Sierra Leone, Western Africa, p.19.

Travels Into the Inland Parts of Africa: p.20-21 especially.

Whether they call themselves scions of sion, afro-saxons, francais de coleur, anglo-indos, neo-utthmani khalifis, etc (when it comes to neo-colonial overseer, bourgeiose & aristrocratic castes & classes) you will find if they are not the descendants of the settlers (who in turn are often paleo & neo-nazis/fascist/corporatists & sometimes their spawn with their coloured concubines) then they are descended from slave trading cartel members.

It was impossible to change your legal status. Whether on a plantation or walking around on the street your legal status stayed with you. Even with forged or proper documents you could be kidnapped and sold. It seems one of the most common outcomes of warfare is a change of legal status or nationality to a population of people.

The states & societies that were wholly born of the Atlantic slave trade was not just in the Americas.

From Cacheu to what is now Angola as well as Mozambique was also wholly born out that system.

SS Africa, meaning settler southern Africa as well as settler highland eastern Africa are derivatives from them, though they are out of the time range since the mining & ivory fad really got rolling after 1865, if memory serves me correct.

Its probably better to study Haiti & the South American revolutions.

Quite frankly neither Africa (perhaps with the exception of the Badawi wa Yousifiya NASSERISTS) nor North America are really good models, that is if one is NOT interested in the settler/slaver sidekick perspective.

HIStory.

Because that changes the narrative. Can't have that.
