More whites were brought as slaves to North Africa than Blacks brought as slaves to the United States

Economist and author Thomas Sowell says: “More whites were brought as slaves to North Africa than Blacks brought as slaves to the United States or to the 13 colonies from which it was formed. White slaves were still being bought and sold in the Ottoman Empire, decades after Blacks were freed in the United States.” https://torontosun.com/opinion/columnists/elder-what-left-wing-educators-dont-teach-during-black-history-month

Robert Davis states that most modern historians minimize the white slave trade. He estimates that slave traders from Tunis, Algiers, and Tripoli alone enslaved 1 million to 1.25 million Europeans in North Africa, from the beginning of the 16th century to the middle of the 18th (these numbers do not include the European people who were enslaved by Morocco and by other raiders and traders of the Mediterranean Sea coast). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barbary_slave_trade

About 600,000 slaves were transported to America. About 310,000 of these persons were imported into the Thirteen Colonies before 1776. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slavery_in_the_United_States
