I tried to tell yall that. I think it was Looms. I told yall that the Yoruba were Slave raiders along with the Fulani/Hausa. Only a minority of them were enslaved. they enslaved less powerful states who were ethnically and religiously different.
the yoruba like all empire builders found themselves on both sides of the slave trade. yoruba, akan(ashanti), fulani, hausa, and mende were all slave traders when they had powerful empires. and were enslaved when their empires fell.
there's a lot of yoruba in the americas especially in brazil and cuba, and trinidad. and according to dna admixture studies, yoruba represents the highest african admixture among aa, with mende coming in 2nd.
