This is a terrific question. Thanks for asking.

The Bight of Benin was a major source during the Atlantic slave trade. Here is a map of the tribes in that area.

Here is a wikipedia article listing the main tribes in the region.
Here are the percentages.
Here are the ethnic groups.

The BaKongo of the Democratic Republic of Congo and Angola
The Mandé of Upper Guinea
The Gbe speakers of Togo, Ghana, and Benin (Adja, Mina, Ewe, Fon)
The Akan of Ghana and Ivory Coast
The Wolof of Senegal and the Gambia
The Igbo of southeastern Nigeria
The Mbundu of Angola (includes both Ambundu and Ovimbundu)
The Yoruba of southwestern Nigeria
The Chamba of Cameroon
The Makua of Mozambique  

Why is the question never asked? That is also a good question. Rather ironically, the answer might be that it is due to a lack of discrimination. (Perhaps, once it is known that there is a tiger in your house somewhere, concern then moves away from establishing whether it is a Siberian or Sumatran tiger to "How do I get away from this tiger!) By the same token, if you are white, that is enough for most people you meet. What crosses their minds is more likely to be Republican or Democrat than "I wonder if he is Nordic or Germanic." And if somebody is yellow, they tend not to care which ethnic group they are from, either.

you can always tell how stupid and trashy a nigger is by their clinging to some imaginary descent from royalty

I don't know, but most of them obviously didn't originate from the ones at the top of the "food chain".

They don't know because raising children right involves having actual conversations.

The pavement chimp of NA doesn't do that.

The men abandon the children, and the women suck government tit.

No one is talking about family history.

Mostly the countries along the west African coast, Angola, Ghana, Senegal, Senegambia and The Gambia, their heritage in America is so mixed now it would require genetic testing to tell specifically, with the majority having mixed Africa lineage with an admixture of European genes.

I think that we as whites take more pride in our ancestry because each of the European cultures have accomplishments and things to be proud of. We have long and well-kept histories, intricate mythologies, rich literary and oral traditions.

Africans have none of these things. Therefore it doesn't matter.

When have you ever even heard of a black wanting to find out their ancestry? They weren't taken from some great land so even they don't care what shithole some other dindu captured and sold their ancestors from.

They act like it's impossible to know and 'the white man' did this to us and all that. But we have plenty of historical knowledge of ancient societies and the people in them only because we wanted to know, some of it going back 5000 years

Every civilisation has 'achievements ' to be proud of, and plenty not. Certainly not divided by colour. Maybe black history would provide some interesting research for you as you obviously know nothing about it

Only the blacks dumb enough to get sold came here. My theory is that we got the worst of Africa. Then we bread them for strength. Then let them loose. The last fifty years they've been breeding for aggression. Those are the only physical traits I've noticed.

Our blacks are hell of alot better than the lot left in Africa probably because there is so much white in them. Ours can read, fill out complicated social services applications, utilize autotune programs, and operate intricate hydraulic vehicle lifting devices. They still struggle with the use of belts, and grammer but ebonics is a hell of alot easier to understand than pidgin english.
