    Cha b'e 'n clò ciar nach b' fhiach 'f hùcadh, mar a míníonn an seanfhocail mar gheall ar Gníomh Parlaiminte 1746 san Alban. Ciallaíonn an focail 'Diaspora' cine airithe a bheith scaipthe ar fud an domhain. Focail Greigise is ea e a husaideadh le scaipeadh na nGiúdach a mhíníu nuair a dibríodh as a dtír féin iad in aimsir na Romans. Chuaigh siad ar an gcéad dul síos go dtí na tíortha ar an Meanmhair, deisceart na hEorpa ach go hairaithe.

    Ansin chuaigh siad o thuaidh th'eis dóibh gearleannúint is díbirt a fhuallaingt i dtíortha fe leith. Churaidh as a dtir féin iad de bharr cogaíocht le na gcomharsana. Tá a lan i gcoíteann idir na nGaeil is na nGiúdach, agus caitheadh amach as a dtír féin an bheirt acu de dheasca an impiriúlachas, is tá na nGaeil is na nGiúdach scaipthe anois ar fud an domhan mhóir.

    Political prisoners were routinely sold into slavery, and The Act of Proscription (1746) ‘which was passed after the Battle of Culloden’ stated that anyone wearing tartan or Highland dress was subject to transportation. Conditions on the ships were appalling, and many would not survive the long, grueling sea crossing and the cruel treatment meted out.

    As early as the 1600’s, ships from Leith and Port Glasgow in Scotland sailed off to the colonies laden with Scottish people that had been rounded up to be sold at the block to line the pocket of their compatriots. The numbers taken as slaves must have been huge as, according to the Calendar of State Papers, Colonial Series, America and West Indies of 1701, we read of there being an estimated 25,000 slaves in Barbados, of whom 21,700 were white. The fair-skinned slaves were known as Redlegs or Redshanks by the locals because of their sunburned flesh. It was upon the sweat and tears of these unfortunate people that the British economy was driven forward and thrived.
