Slave traders didn't make anybody slaves. Other African tribes did that, taking survivors from tribal warfare. Whites were so susceptible to the many horrendous diseases in Africa that they hardly survived even huddled in coastal forts, where they bought slaves from the interior. Arabs were slave traders longer and in greater numbers than whites ever were, and Arabs to this day disdain blacks (shhhh...don't tell Louis Farrakhan).
