  • 2. In Europe by the 1500s and on, there was muchdeforestation and poverty, and the population wasbecoming too great for the land and government to handle.
  • 3. By colonizing the Americas, for example , English, French,Portuguese, and Spanish colonists were able to have newlands and opportunities, but in the process millions of NativeAmericans , were killed, enslaved,intermarried,or forced toleave their land.
  • 4. Indeed , the European colonization of the Americans wasperhaps the bloodiest and most horrific time in humanhistory.
  • 5. Besides the genocide of Native Americans, Europeancolonists brought African claves to the Americas to work,especially after finding out that Native Americans would justdie in slavery.
  • 6. Imagen this: men, who youve never seen before, come toyour house and your neighbors house and they all have asmuch weapons as they can carry.
  • 7. Then they start killing or enslaving you, you family, andyour nieghbors.
  • 8. And you and your family and neighbors fight back but arecrushedur niegf by the mens superior weapons.
  • 9. And soon, you and most of your family and your neighborsare gone--killed, enslaved, intermarried, or forced to livesomewhere else.
  • 10. This is what colonization is : it is death, it is slavery ; It isthe end of one group and the expansion of another group.
