Slaveholder— but not American
I do not feel that Diallo qualifies for Category:American slaveholders, because he was niether an American citizen nor did he own slaves in America. Also, I barely feel that he qualifies for Category:Slaveholders, because his owning of slaves has nothing to do with his plight through the Transatlantic slave trade or any other documented part of his life. Nothing is discussed for the reasons why him being a slave-owner was important in his life, yet the only indication found in various sources concerning Diallo is that he merely had slaves. —№tǒŖïøŭş4lĭfė ♫♪ Comment was by Notorious4life at 19:06 on 13 July 2006.
- He clearly was not merely "a victim" of the transatlantic slave trade - he came from a line of Muslim slave traders, and attempted to negotiate his way out of slavery by exchanging his father's other slaves for himself . I therefore find using the word "victim" twice, and prominently, without making much comment on his own tradition of slaving - that said, this is probably a symptom of a wider need for cleanup of this article.

Will Gompertz on Suleiman Indeed, he was a as I understand it not "a famous slave", he was from a wealthy family (who kept slaves themselves) and suffered the "indignity" of being captured and enslaved himself for a couple of years before being recognised as an educated man and free to England where he was welcomed into high society. He later retuned to Africa to become a slave trader himself. Raygunfun (talk) 12:33, 13 July 2010 (UTC)
