The Triangular Trade
Transcript of The Triangular Trade
Captains Log 12th August 1882
These slaves are the whiniest bunch I've had in months! I wish they would just accept their fate and be quiet about it......I might start to get a little crueller to them to show them whats happening isn't actually so bad (stupid natives don't have a clue!)
I mean I killed a few random slaves at the start of the journey (just the puny weak looking ones) to show the rest who is in charge but that's obviously not worked!
I think I'll choose a few who are whining the most and give the sharks something to bite at for a change......
Well, that seemed to make them all shut up in a hurry! They all now realise their fate and have accepted it...it won't be too bad if they behave themselves in Atlanta!
We'll reach land in a few days....then the fun for them begins!
