But giving them the benefit of the doubt, it has become clear that black friendship has little effect on white racism: A white Boston police officer said this in an email about the arrest of Henry Louis Gates, Jr, a black Harvard professor: If anything the black-best-friend argument shows that the speaker does not know much about racism and is blind to it.

It makes total sense.” Blanchard claims that the estimate is reasonable, but that it is essentially made up, invented, created, and not really discovered.
Anyways according to this article here, and also here Davis found, using some new methods which he apparently invented, that between 1 and 1.25 million Europeans were enslaved from about 1500-1800, give or take 50 years.The various articles, and Davis himself, explains that the over 1 million number was arrived at through guesswork based on assumptions. The real problem is that Davis does not know something, and so he uses bad history, bad science, and bad logic.This is a form of the fallacy known as the appeal to ignorance, and it also involves the fallacy of suppressing evidence (though in this case we are suppressing the lack of evidence).However the pirates remained free to enslave Africans as much as they liked.It is also telling that during the time of the Barbary Pirates the slave trade in the Americas resulted in approximately 10-12 million Africans being enslaved.
