What year did African Slaves where stolen from Africa to America?, And What year did African Immigrants started coming to America?

Actually, they were not stolen, they were sold by other Africans.
You don't think Europeans would just march into the "Dark Continent" looking for people did you?

I'm guessing you are speaking of what became the US. The first black slaves came to the British colonies was in 1616 when a Dutch ship captured a Spanish slave ship and brought about 20 African slaves to Jamestown. At least some were treated as slaves while others seem have been considered indentured servants.

Slaves were taken back to Spain by Columbus. They were enslaved in the Americas when European colonies started here. So slaves were in use way before they were brought over to work on sugar plantations.

You mean SOLD by their African conquerors into the slave trade. There was a free black at Jamestown, and later other free blacks that owned black slaves. PS Work on your English as well as your history and extreme bias.
