Agreed but without sellers, there are no buyers…

It’s a two way street.
These African sellers weren’t going to the shores of USA to sell their product. Europeans came to Africa and created the demand.
They were selling their product among themselves and to Muslims long before Europeans showed up on their shores. The Islamic slave trade was about twice as large as the Atlantic slave trade. And Europeans didn’t introduce slavery to the Americas either. The Aztecs and Incans and Mayans and various native tribes of the north all practiced one form of slavery or another before whitey ever showed up. Slavery is the norm throughout human history. The last couple of centuries are a huge outlier.
