They often killed and robbed several natives for their gold, as Document Six tells us. They were incredibly greedy, and wanted wealth and riches, as opposed to friendship and peace. Their cruelty grew so terrible that the Native Americans they tormented became afraid of the word "Christian," as the Spanish plunderers called themselves as such. Document Six was written by a Spaniard calling for reform. Document Seven displays Native American life as if it were quaint and quiet.
In the previous years before the Mission San Luis Rey was even founded as an official mission, the destruction of the San Diego Mission occurred due to the native uprising against the Spanish forces invading their land. However, according to Father Junipero Serra, the natives were by far in the wrong with their actions to destroy the mission (Chan/Olin, 60). This argument is obviously one sided, but if the website for the San Luis Rey Mission mentioned the fact that the natives sometimes did not like the fact that they were being taken over by a force that merely controlled them with guns, it would most definitely affect their tourist income in numbers. In addition, the mission website is less likely to mention the fact that there were punishments for those natives who did reject the work or conversion to Catholicism. As mention in Francis F. Guest’s essay, “Cultural Perspectives on Death and Whipping in the Missions”, there were many instances in which the punishments for natives was excessive and superfluous.
Men like Al Capone killed out their opponents to control their profits of the illegal goods. Like a monopoly, their greed made their illegal sales into a death race. I think that the passage of the Volstead Act and the ruling in the Scopes trial did represent genuine triumphs for traditional values. During the Scopes trial people were fighting for their religious beliefs because a biology teacher tried to teach his student the theory of evolution. Since the theory of evolution was completely against their traditional values, the process of the Scopes trial was justifiable.
The first Island Columbus landed on he named San Salvador (DWC 10.3 (“Christopher Columbus”). Columbus goes on to state that he, “took some of the natives by force, in order that they might learn and might give me information of whatever there is in these parts” (DWC 10.3 (“Christopher Columbus”). Columbus clearly states that he captured natives to get from them information as to where he could go that would be of benefit to him. Queen Isabel and King Ferdinand sent Columbus on this mission and the missions following his first to conquer. Land is power and unfortunately the native people had to suffer and die, because of the desire for power.
If religion was the moral excuses for the conquest of the carbine, then gold was the motive. Las Casas believed the Spanish lust for gold is the reason they treated the natives of the Carrabin so harshly. He states multiple times that Spaniards greed has blinded them and caused them to stray from Christ. The assumption that Las Casa makes influences his portrayal of the natives. In his account, he revels that the natives have a strong distract for the Spaniards thirst for gold.
Alexander tortured many of his victims and then he killed them. Another reason why he was a villain because he killed members of his family so that he would become the ultimate successor to the throne. This should never be how a king becomes the ruler of his kingdom, ever. Even though I believe that Alexander the Great is a villain, others may think he was a hero. They may think that because he had conquered so many other nations.
Instead it shows Columbus as this great man who is bringing these modern ideas (raising of the cross) to these very savage people, which is seen by the Natives dancing around naked. However in reality Columbus stumbled upon this land and forced his gold strive mind upon the natives. This meant taking them captive and killing them all to get some profit. Other parts of the picture that stand out and show how the Europeans are superior to the Natives is the clothes worn by both sides. The Europeans are dressed in very fancy and expensive cloths, which shows their wealth and their superiority.
Sadly, the Native Americans didn 't enjoy people taking their land causing a lot of killing. Conquest Conquest is the act of forcefully taking control of land. The French couldn 't keep up with the demands back home due lack of land. Also, the Natives would threaten the habitants and raided their settlements. The French reacted by retaliating and destroying a few of their villages.
In all, two of the many reasons why people kill are because of jealousy and greed. When you are jealous of someone, you tend to want to be like them which tricked Cain 's mind into thinking that if his brother no longer lived, he would be able to be treated like Abel and have everything that he had. On the other hand, greed is when
How can we call ourselves a nation that is trying to prevent racism and discrimination when we still have a racist sports name, which was invented in a very low and racial time for our long native people? Discriminating them and basically stalking the Native Americans of their rough history, this name is in every way disrespectful and filled with disgust. This name was invented when there were social policies to eliminate Native American tribes and Civilization Regulations, which banned and outlawed their traditions. How is this name not offensive and how was it meant out of respect? The Redskins are hated by so many organizations, like the NCAI, other tribes, Civil Rights organizations, school boards and even public officials that there is no way they can get away with the name “Redskins”.
