I've ordered the recommended book-thanks!

Canada only had a population of 70,000 in 1760, not just male of fighting age.

Shows a BIG advantage to France.

You did the job for me, John.

Magisterial work indeed. I did a survey of USN captains on the West Africa Station prior to the ACW. That book helped tremendously.

As in are you going by what the FBI and US gov say when you talk about blacks? To be precise you have shown numerous videos of folks committing crimes, the criminals you have shown were black but also some were Hispanic and Arab looking.. So one question to you is do you consider Hispanic and Arab folks to be black because at least when it comes to Arabs..North Africa or Middle Eastern Arabs are considered to be white by the US gov. You have complained that the media does not talk enough about black on black crime. Your own posting leaves the reader to ask many a question...like what is your issue..are you against black people living in the USA? What do you want to see happen in the USA, how do you think our laws should treat folks based on their skin color and religion.
Ahem...the politically correct term in these enlightened times is "people of color". "White people", of course, must hereafter be called "persons of no color", since the term "white" is highly variable and inaccurate.

Meanwhile, we are drifting off topic.

The book came in and it looks like an excellent volume. It is certainly comprehensive.

Again, thanks very much.
