What You Can't Say

Continued... Selection of the fittest occurred in Africa when slaves were captured. The strongest and healthiest were targeted by slave traders, foreign and tribal. If you removed the population from any society that shared a particular characteristic, then that characteristic would be enhanced in your gene pool and it would diminish in the remaining gene pool for that society. If you add in the effect of the conditions to which slaves were subjected, many of the weaker, unhealthy victims died on slave ships en route to the Americas. Those captured which were weaker, less physically robust were unintentionally removed from the gene pool by death from the harsh conditions. Continue....

It may not be completely correct because it is speculation, but it's certainly not "all wrong". What you have said is correct, but what I have said is correct also. When those that were weaker mentally and physically were captured....many did not survive the overland trips to the coastal slave markets and if they did, they were unlikely to be purchased to make the long trip across the ocean.

This line of thinking is all wrong. We did not get the "best and brightest" of the African tribal population. The tribes that were vanquished tended to be weaker, both physically and mentally. The "cream of the crop" were the victors of the internecine wars that were able to maintain their "superiority" over those they sold into bondage.
Of course, there was "selective breeding" going on, just as would be done with cattle or other livestock. The evidence of this shows today. Look and compare IQ scores . . .

“Hitler believed that the human gene pool could be improved by using selective breeding similar to how farmers breed superior cattle strains. In the formulation of their racial policies, Hitler’s government relied heavily upon Darwinism..... The ‘superior race’ belief was based on the theory of group inequality within each species, a major presumption and requirement of Darwin’s original ‘survival of the fittest’ theory.”

Only the strongest and healthiest survived to become the African-American gene pool. This would have fulfilled one purpose of Hitler’s death camps, to exterminate inferior genes from the gene pool. The ensuing conditions in the Americas, as slaves, also contributed to this gene pool selection. Slave owners treated most slaves as property, similar to cattle. Breeding selection was done to produce stronger, healthier slaves.

Hitler’s selective breeding was done inadvertently and by design.

Jon Hubbard, a Republican member of the Arkansas House of Representatives, has a book, titled "Letters to the Editor: Confessions of a Frustrated Conservative." Among its statements for which Hubbard has been criticized and disavowed by the Republican Party is, "The institution of slavery that the black race has long believed to be an abomination upon its people may actually have been a blessing in disguise. The blacks who could endure those conditions and circumstances would someday be rewarded with citizenship in the greatest nation ever established upon the face of the Earth."

Hubbard's observation reminded me of my 1972 job interview...
