Christian Burial?[edit]

I have read on a few accounts that Cinque renounced the faith. The story of him as a slave trader seems to be out of spite. One will never know. Cinque was NOT A SLAVE TRADER!!!! —Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.149.80.70 (talk) 23:08, 23 September 2008 (UTC)

Could somebody re-word this to more accurately reflect what the source actually says, please?[edit]

Our article currently says:
. Although some of the Africans associated with the Amistad probably did engage in the slave trade upon their return, most historians agree that the allegations of Cinqué's involvement are not substantiated.[citation]

But it seems to me that what the source actually says is something more like:
Although some of the Africans associated with the Amistad probably did engage in the slave trade upon their return, given the nature of the regional economy at the time, this author agrees with historian Jones 1987 article that the allegations of Cinqué's involvement seem implausible in view of the lack of evidence, and the unlikeliness of a conspiracy of silence leaving no traces.[citation]

That seems rather different from what we have. For instance it's 'not guilty' rather than 'not proven' ('unsubstantiated'), but it's also unclear what 'most historians' think, as we are only told that Jones had to reply to several historians. But I'm not sure how to re-word the article myself, so I would prefer to ask somebody else to try to do so.Tlhslobus (talk) 10:49, 24 October 2017 (UTC)

On second thoughts I've decided to try my own rewording, and I'll see what happens to it. Tlhslobus (talk) 11:04, 24 October 2017 (UTC)
