    they may be different people.

    Slaves taken to the Americas were mainly taken from WEST-africa. Later migrants from Africa came from all over the continent

    Did you mean "ancestors of people who moved TO Africa"?  An immigrant moves to a country.  An emigrant moves from a country.

    Some people who moved from Africa to Europe and North America are not Black. The are descendants of English colonial whites from Zimbabwe (former Rhodesia) Uganda and Kenya; Dutch Boers from South Africa, Belgians (Congo), French (Ivory Coast and North Africa and Islamic North Africans and Egyptians (who are more "Moor": Arab and Turkish, not Black as in the African ancestors of the Carribean and America's former slaves)

    Do you mean DESCENDANTS ?? The difference is in attitude. Slaves were dragged here in chains, and recent immigrants came voluntarily so do not have the "the U S owes me" socialist attitude.
