Why didn’t they just do it themselves?

After the Spanish and other Europeans killed most of the Indigenous people, they needed someone to work on the plantations and encomiendas. They started buying people from Africa to do the work. Why didn’t they just do it themselves? (Hint: It is not just because they were lazy!)

i think they didn’t do it there selves because that way they can get more people to harm when they didn’t have nothing to do. i also think they didn’t do it there selves because that way they can offend others.

Because they want them to do all they work them becaus they didn’t want to do it.And they wanted to have slaves

  Lashantay Childress wrote @

They want ppl. from other places as (Indigneous) ppl. to know that they are in charged and that they have power. They have so much power they can have others do exactly what they want!

  Osvaldo wrote @

They bought slaves from africa because they were busy doing other stuff and they needed someone to watch over there plantation.

I Think because they’re bad people and like seeing the slaves getting hurt……..i really can’t explain much :]

  Gloria Edith Gonzalez wrote @

I think that they probably wanted to feel like they were important, they probably got treated the same and wanted to get pay back but they shouldn’t get pay back with them if they weren’t responsible or maybe they were just lazy.

  LATIANAE OLIVER wrote @

THEY WANTED TO SEE OTHER PEOPLE IN PAIN I GUESS

  Tamion wrote @

I think they had the Africans do their work, because it made them feel powerful, and because they didn’t have to pay them much for the hard labor.

  billy moore wrote @

i think they did that because why should they do it if somone an do it for free

  ; Ashley N. wrote @

I think they did so because they didn’t do it because they needed people to work for them and because they just didn’t want to do it for themselves because i believe they didn’t want to have to go through the pain the slaves went through with picking the cotton.

  hersson wrote @

I think that they are to lazy to do it themselves.

  Tashaniqua Stine wrote @

THEY DIDN’T DO IT THEMSELVES BECAUSE MAYBE THEY WERE TO LAZY TO DO IT THEMSELVES AND THEY DID NOT HAVE THAT MUCH MONEY.

  johanna.c wrote @

They didnt do it themselves because they feel that they are than that, better than to do that work. They are to lazy and dont want to waiste money to pay people to do the job if they can get people to do it for free. SLAVES

  djackson wrote @

they couldnt do it beacuse they were going to save money and they thought they were more powerful

  Silvano Garcia wrote @

I think that they didn’t want to work because soon people would ask for money. And maybe they didn’t want to pay anybody anything. I think that they were really selfish.

  MARKELMARTIN wrote @

They did not do it their self because maybe they were to tired and lazy.

  stephanie guardia wrote @

Maybe they needed help on the encomiendas. with more people involved. The more cotton they would sell and the more money the would make. This is I think the spanish and the Europeans didn’t do it themselves

  Michelle Ramirez wrote @

MAYBE BECAUSE THEY BELIEVED THEY WERE ROYAL SO THEY WANTED THE LOWER CLASS PEOPLE TO DO ALL OF THIER WORK FOR THEM:]

  Maribel wrote @

WELL I THINK THAT THEY WERE RICH AND THEY WANTED TO BUY OTHER PEOPLE SO THEY CAN DO CLEANING AND THE HARVEST FROM THEM AND IT IS SO WRONG TO DO THAT.

  Luis Gallegos wrote @

I think it was because they thought that they were more important themselves. Also they maybe didn’t see others as people, only as like just slaves.

  LaQuesha wrote @

Aside From Them Being Lazy, The Probably Found Joy Through Watching Other People Suffer….And They Were At More Risk Of Dying From European Diseases..So A Solution Would Be Buying People That Wouldnt Die Of European Diseases.

  Zjhadae Dubois wrote @

They felt they were ore important/valuable the the indigenous people

  Zjhadae Dubois wrote @

They felt they were ore important/valuable then the indigenous people. So they make them do it

  Nayely wrote @

The reason why i think they did that was because they knew that if they did that they would save money because they wouldn’t have to pay them and if they would hire Europeans and or Spanish people they would have to pay them for their work and that wold be less money for their earnings

  Gustavo wrote @

  MAGALI wrote @

tehy wanted to be others superiors and rule over people.they were greedy and very self-centered.also they wouldnt have to pay anyone for the labor they were doing it would all be free.

  EDDIE ROMERO wrote @

  donel harrell wrote @

they didnt do it by there self because if they saved money they wouldnt have to pay them if they would hired the spanish they would have to pay them

  robert bnolen wrote @

I think because they didn’t have anymore Indigenous people to use for slavery.

  jessica n wrote @

they felt they can make somebody else do it for free,if they get them scared enough.if they were scared then they would do it and right after kill and torture them.the spanish felt like ”well we got them so scared we can do any thing to them or with them.{disgusting]

I guess they didn’t do it because they had more important things to do

  Yesenia B. wrote @

they didn’t do it themselves cause probably they wanted to look like if they were supposly rich. but another reason could be cause they didn’t have to pay the y would just supply them with shelter and food.another sreason could be that they weren’t really important as them and that they could just relax.

  omarlopez wrote @

THEY DIDN’T DO IT THEMSELFS BECAUSE IT WOULD TAKE LONG TIME TO DO IT. AND IF THEY CAPTURE AFRICANS THEY DON’T HAVE TO PAY THEM AND IT WOULD BE EASY FOR THE SPANISH TO CAPTURE THEM.

The reason that they did not do it their selves was because they either wanted to kill people or they were too busy killing others.

i think its because having slaves was probilly in fashion and every one else whanted them or probilly because the fild was to big for them to do it by they self..

  Sean Anderson wrote @

They wanted the slaves to do it because they thought they were so special.

  Cheyenne wrote @

Because they had other people to do ther work, so most of the spanish people dont know how to do some of ther work.

  ANGEL SHIRLEY wrote @

I THINK THEY WANTED SOMEONE ELSE TO DO IT BECAUSE THEY WERE SCARY,AND ALSO THEY PROBALY DIDN’T HAVE ENOUGH PEOPLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  carina diaz wrote @

I think it was because everone wanted to take advantage of them or maybe they wanted to feel inportant so they wanted to have slaves.

  fantasy enciso wrote @

I think they don’t got the power to themselves and becuase there some scary cat to kill all those people

  christopher delgado wrote @

i think the spanish didnt do it becouse they were used to working outside in the fields nder the hot sun. the african were used to working in the fields back in africa so the spanish decided to go and force them into working for them.

CAUSE THEY WANTED SLAVES TO DO THE HARD WORK AND CAUSE THEY DIDNT WANTED TO GET DIRTY THATS WHAT I THINK
