True, but America doesn't want what we have, they want what Africa has to offer, manual labor.
America has that! We could trade with them.
Yes, and Africa wants what we have to offer, so let's do a 3 way trade with them. First of all we will go to Africa a trade our weapons and manufactured goods for people, then we will go to America and trade people for the things we want.
I can see Africa captain!
In Africa the slaves are being loaded on to the ship.
We are nearly in America.
What did we ever do to them?
In America the slaves are traded for sugar, silk, tobacco and cotton
