The writer describes various ships that he believes are still participating in the slave trade. Although this practice is illegal, as long as there is money to be made, this will continue. He believes that if the transport of Africans to the U.S. for the purpose of slavery is officially declared piracy by the U.S. government, the laws will be better enforced, and the slave trade will end.
