International Slave Trade Was a Genocide

Were you aware that the international slave trade was strongly promoted by the Duke of York’s Royal African Company? Were you aware that the trade resulted in the deaths of millions of African captives, estimated from five million into tens of millions? That many captives died from sadistic abuse, disease in crowded, filthy slave ships, particularly cruel punishments for insurrection, and being thrown overboard to the sharks trailing the ships? Were you aware that America willingly participated in the international trade for another 20 years after the ratification of the Constitution pursuant to its own terms? Were you aware that an illegal trade continued even after legal prohibition? Do you agree that these circumstances constituted a genocide and a holocaust?
