Did you know that the biggest winners in the early colonization of America were the shipping companies? That industry generated over $550,000,000 dollars a year, in today’s money, just from their fees to transport immigrants. That is the reason for the creation of the indentured servant scheme. And, did you know that because of that, the first slaves in America were not native Africans, but Europeans. Coincidentally, did you know that the practice of enslaving native Africans began long before America was being colonized? It was a common trade in Europe long before America began the practice.
