I just showed you numbers yet you're asking for numbers.*smh*<quoted text>
I need numbers it was too big of an event to not have the organization of counting the commerce or slaves. Things like this don't just happen on the fly you can't be sloppy with this stuff. I need numbers 20 million, then 12.5 million, then 10 million is not gonna do because you guys shoulda had it right the first time. I can't work with these numbers they're erratic. How am I supposed to find out what happened and they keep slashing the numbers by the millions?
You're acting as though it was all conducted by one establishment. How the hell would there of been the organization of counting the commerce or slaves of these were various private and public companies over 3 centuries in over 50 countries using thousands of ships and hundreds of ports? Between countries which were at times at war with each other, during the golden age of piracy and the many illegal slave ships during the 19th century.
You act as though there were computers, international cooperation like we have today and private companies had to make their transactions public. They're families and establishments who've completely destroyed records due to their shame of involvement even.
You have no argument, you're asking for something anyone with common sense would know is not possible to obtain. Accurate numbers to the very last captive, next you'll be asking for all of their names.
