Someone on here the other day actually *scoffed* at why enslaved people did not simply overtake the vastly outnumbered slavers during the Middle Passage. As if everything abt these ships weren't designed against that. Watch if you have time: slavevoyages.org/voyage/ship
Our educational system has done us all an intentional disservice. Also, most of these slave ships were operated by Northern traders. For everyone who says their white ancestors "didn't own slaves" or "fought for the Union," your legacy is the barbarism of the Middle Passage.
