Their human rights were destroyed from the first step of Atlantic Slave trade. According to “Thoughts ad Sentiments on the Evil and Wicked Traffic of the Slavery add Commerce of the Human Species,” written by Ottobah, A native of Africa, mentions “I was first kidnapped and betrayed by some of my own complexion” which shows African slaves were not going for their own will and destroyed human rights. Later in 16th century, most of African countries that were enforced to export slaves and kingdoms established special law in order to export more slaves. Law states that if one can’t sell slave, that guy is sold as slaves. Therefore, African people betrayed others, which led huge chaos and huge amount of African were (change to being) sold as slaves, which lead to complete chaos (and that resulted in complete chaos).
As per Howard Zinn’s assertion, “ They[Columbus and his men] had to fill up the ships with something, so in 1495 they went on a great slave raid (Zinn, 5).” In other words, because Columbus couldn’t find gold to fill his ships, he used the natives as slaves to load his ship with “goods.” His initial intent for wealth changed to his intent to exploit the Natives. Zinn furthermore states “Two hundred slaves [out of 500] died on the voyage to Spain. Too many died in captivity (Zinn, 5)”. His statement further confirms that slavery was practiced to an extent such that hundreds died.

The film came out in 2013 and was based on the true story of Captain Richard Phillips. The actual event took place in April of 2009. Captain Richard Phillips and 20 crew members were sailing the Maersk Alabama (“Piracy and Terrorism.”) from Djibouti, Somalia to Mombasa, Kenya ("Warnings on Pirates Ignored, Maersk Lawsuits Say.").

The ship’s crew tried using water spouts to repel the pirates away, but that did not work.
Since the African traders needed more slaves, they decided to create violence by going into small parts of the West Coast of Africa and take whatever people they needed for their slave trade. Many families were separated since they were being sent to different parts of the world. At the beginning the slaves were sold for what was called two bills. The slaves were also used in what was called barter trade, which meant that there were sold more than one time before reaching their destination.
