One reason many European countries colonized otherlands and peoples is because many European countrieswere running out of natural resources
In Europe by the 1500s and on ,there was muchdeforestation and poverty and the population wasbecoming too great for the land and government tohandle
By colonizing the americans for example English French Portugueseand Spanish colonists were able to have new lands and opportunitiesbut the in the process millions of native americans were killedenslaved intermarried or forced to leave their land
Indeed the european colonization of the americas wasperhaps the bloodiest and most horrific time in humanhistory
Besides the genocide of native americans europeancolonists brought african slaves to the americas to workespecially after finding out that native americans wouldjust die in slavery

And you and your family and your NEIGHBOR FIGHTBACK BUT ARE CRUSHED BY THE MENS superiorweapons

This is what colonialism is it is death it is slavery it isthe end of one group and the expansion of anothergroup
