Question
Hello,
I am doing an assessment in humanities and I need to find out why some Africans sold other Africans to the white men? Could you help me?

Answer
Dear Miriam:

It is often difficult to ascertain why someone does anything. Nevertheless, being a descendent of African's who partnered with the Europeans I can say that it was greed and stupidity. Unless you can be more specific it is the best answer that I can render. Anyone can speculate as to their own ideas but I cannot.

Sincerely,

Dr. Lawrence Adouaw,Ph.D.
