1. Over a period of 300 years, is it fair to say that 60,000 slaves were transported annually to the Americas or has the transportation of slaves to the Americas been one big myth?

2. The largest seagoing vessel carried 400 slaves but not all of the ships were that large.

3. Time of passage was 3 – 4 months. That means 200 vessels/ships per year would have to travel carrying 300 people. One ship could make 3 passages per year. The Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade Database says there were 1100 – 1400 voyages made over that 300 year period. If that is the case and each ship carried 400 people, the total number would be 560,000 Africans were transported. It still does not add up.

4. We already know that over 83% of all Americans with African ancestry have Native American blood.

5. Did Native American tribes help slaves escape or were Americans with African ancestry already part of the Native American Nations?

After 20 years the Royal Adventurer–with its 15 ships had transported between 90,000 and 100,000 slaves. That is a long ways from 15,000,000 to 20,000,000 slaves who were supposedly brought to the Americas. Doesn’t that leave a little over 14,000,000 to 19,000,000 people not accounted for—What’s up with that? Or is/was the Black/Brown birthrate that more accelerated than the White birthrate? The calculated median of 15 and 20 million would be 17.5 million. Divide it by 400 people—the largest slave vessels. That comes out to 43,750 trips. Can you show me a record where this many trips occurred, or the number of trips calculated by the so-called experts?(Figures exist of 27,000 – 35,000 voyages). The same thing happened with the holocaust in Germany during World War II. Six million people were supposedly killed, but there are not that many names referenced who died totaling six million.

How come none of these supposed slave ships are around today? NONE in a museum. I have search the web and found NO ships at all just pictures.

How did they feed 400 African for months?

How come those 400 African didn't drown in their piss and feces?

"The Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade Database has
information on more than 35,000 slave voyages
that forcibly embarked over 12 million Africans for transport to the
Americas between the sixteenth and nineteenth centuries."
http://www.slavevoyages.org/tast/index.faces

"From the 16th to the 19th centuries, an estimated 12 million Africans were shipped as slaves to the Americas. See Slavery in the Americas.[1]"

[1]^ Ronald Segal (1995). The Black Diaspora: Five Centuries of the Black Experience Outside Africa. New York: Farrar, Straus and Giroux. p. 4. ISBN 0-374-11396-3. "It is now estimated that 11,863,000 slaves were shipped across the Atlantic.[Note in original: Paul E. Lovejoy, "The Impact of the Atlantic Slave Trade on Africa: A Review of the Literature," in Journal of African History 30 (1989), p. 368.]"

Some nut case who authored the OP article inflates the numbers of slaves transported to the Americas and decreases the number of slave ships.
Small wonder this tripe is posted all over African American Web sites.

One more important point the author dismissed so his article would have 'merit'. Out of the 12 million slaves transported to the Americas, somewhere in the neighborhood of 3.5 million of those slaves went to Brazil, which is a voyage of one month or less.
The article is a sham.

It took all of 10 minutes for Bordoux to rip apart an article that has been circulating on black websites for years. Blacks should be embarrassed.

Why do you trifling crackers always say that shyt? As if that makes you less of a BARBARIC slave owner and MURDERER! Why is that? Do you really think that because there were both white and black slave traders, that what you did to those slaves is somehow forgiven? Did the “black slave traders” lynch and kill millions of black people in THE UNITED STATES? You disgust me.

You are so clueless and ignorant. "what you did". WE didn't do anything to the black slaves. Slavery ended in 1856.

No they didn't and neither did the white slave traders.

"millions of black people"

There were only an estimated 600,000 African slaves shipped to North America. So no one murdered "millions".

Very informative of course whites will deny it. I too can not find any slave ships.

So are these slave ships?

Humans need water or they will die within two days.

How did they keep those african hydrated? It does not add up.

I guess the same place as all the other old wooden ships. They fell apart and were used for buildings, fire wood or they just rotted and sank.

"Besides the slaves who died on the Middle Passage itself, even more slaves probably died in the slave raids in Africa. The death toll from four centuries of the Atlantic slave trade is estimated at 10 million.“

They drank water much like the crews on the whaling ships in the 1700-1800s.
