Eventually, the Sao Tome plantation system labored by African slaves became the model for plantation slavery in the Americas and the Caribbean. In addition, when Columbus discovered the New World in 1492, the European colonizers desperately needed slave labor from Africa to work the gold and silver mines in the American Continent and their tobacco plantations on the Caribbean islands because 90 percent of the Amerindian slaves from the Caribbean islands were wiped out.
