The Origins of the American Slave Trade

If asked about the origins of the American slave trade, most Americans would probably give some vague answer about Whitey being the instigator. This is only a half truth, and a deceitful one at that. Digging deeper into the roots of the slave trade, one would find that the Jews controlled it from Newport, RI and other centers of Jewish concentration.
The story we present is based upon the research of Walter White, Jr writing in an exceptional article footnoted below on the introduction and perpetuation of slavery in America. The story begins with Christopher Columbus in 1492 who set sail for the New World with 5 crewmen or maranos - ie Jews - who persuaded him to take back to Spain 500 Indians who would be sold as slaves. The 5 Jews were Luis de Torres, Marco, Bemal, Alonzo de la Calle and Gabriel Sanchez.
Although 500 seems a rather large number for such small boats, Sanchez returned to Spain with perhaps that many, and with his colleague Bemal betrayed and imprisoned Columbus, while the 5 perpetrators took all of the money from the sale of slaves.
As an interesting side note, we discover that the Jew Luis de Santangelo (spelling of his name varies), and not the Spanish crown, provided the major funding for the voyage.
When the British settled North America over 100 years later, they forbad slavery until 1661 when the practice was legalized through the heavy intervention of the Jews who settled primarily in New York and Newport. The Jews most actively agitating for repeal of anti-slavery laws were Sandiford, Lay, Woolman, Solomon, and Benezet. White does not supply us with first names.
The Jews corrupted the Indians with large quantities of rum and whiskey which they produced in Newport, but were unable to convert them to slaves. However they did manage to swindle them using their cheap worthless glass beads in exchange for luxurious fur pelts.
The repeal of the anti slavery laws was facilitated through the heavy labor needs of the growing agricultural interests in the colonies, work for which Europeans seemed not to be well suited. With major interests in New York, Newport, Charleston, Philadelphia, Richmond, and Savannah, the Jews were well positioned to embark on a massive slave trade which would capture 110 million Africans over a 113 year period, of which only 11 million arrived in America alive.
But the Jews' hatred for the slaves was unquenchable as they treated them with the utmost brutality and squalor imaginable as they took a 3-5 month return voyage to American ports. An example of the brutality included cutting off the legs of a failed escapee in front of the other slaves as a warning against disobedience. Captives wallowed in human excrement the entire way back to the colonies.
The Jews used their distilleries to corrupt the West Africans, as they did with the Indians, and to incite tribal warfare which was a leading source of the slaves. The Jews would pay the equivalent of 18-40 dollars per head and sell them for up to 2,000 dollars at auction in America.
At this point, we are a bit unsatisfied with the numbers which White provided as denominations would be expected to be in pounds. Nevertheless, the slave traders could expect a 10 fold profit on their "cargoes."
One of the more prominent slave traders was the Jew Aaron Lopez of Portugese ancestry who controlled nearly 50% of the slave trade between 1726-74, leaving one of the most magnificent fortunes at the time of his death.
White documents that of the 600 ships leaving Newport over 300 were slave trading vessels. He also provides a very brief list of these ships, all owned by Jews.
  • 'Abigail' by Aaron Lopez.
  • Moses Levy and Jacob Franks.
  • 'Crown' by Isaac Levy and Nathan Simpson.
  • 'Nassau'by Moses Levy.
  • 'Four Sisters' by Moses Levy.
  • 'Anne & Eliza' by Justus Bosch and John Abrams.
  • 'Prudent Betty' by Henry Cruger and Jacob Phoenix.
  • 'Hester' by Mordecai and David Gomez
  • 'Elizabeth' by David and Mordecai Gomez.
  • 'Antigua' by Nathan Marston and Abram Lyell.
  • 'Betsy'by Wm. DeWoolf.
  • 'PoUy'by James DeWoolf.
  • 'White Horse' by Jan de Sweevts.
  • 'Expedition' by John and Jacob Rosevelt.
  • 'Charlotte' by Moses and Sam Levy and Jacob Franks.
  • 'Caracoa' by Moses and Sam Levy.
Only 10% of the captains were Jewish, the owners preferring not to dirty their hands on the excrement laden ships in which the slaves wallowed. A 50% survival rate of slaves was considered exceptionally high.
Some may take exception to White’s sources, one of which included Henry Ford whom some will say is a biased observer, but he resorts primarily to documents made available by the Carnegie institutions which are first hand documents of the ownership and conditions found on the ships during 17th and 18th centuries, as well as valuable sources for the acquisition and disposition of slaves.
It is no surprise that the Jews were the primary owners and operators of the slave trade as their Talmud and Rabbis speak contemptuously of anyone who is not a Jew. Indeed, the late and disgusting Joan Rivers longed to murder 1000 Arab children.
