Why did Europeans view African slaves as a better a source of labor than Native Americans?

There are 3 Answers! Be sure to get them all.AnswerAfricans were immune to the conditions and diseases. It was because the africans were already in contact with the europeans when they had started trading with one another. Europeans felt they could indur the climate because of their skin color. Many Native Americans started to die off because of the diseases. Alot of the native Americans also started to escape,fight back, and many of them died off. They also felt that Africans were cheaper. AnswerThe Native Americans were less resistant to the diseases that the Europeans brought over. The Portuguese and other sailors had already made the selling of African slaves an established trade. In North America, the settlers initially weren't in a position to take Native Americans as slaves because they lived a precarious existence that needed to be at peace with the Natives to continue. AnswerThere were more Africans available and the Europeans found it more pracitcal to buy Africans from Africans than to attempt to capture "Native Americans."


How did the columbian exchange and the slave trade affect the economies and the people of Europe Africa and the Americans?

The Columbian Exchange and the slave trade affect the economies and the people in Europe, Africa, and The Americas in many ways. Columbian Exchange might have been very popular back then, especially when the Europeans explorers brought new plants and animals to Europe and Asia like corn, potatoes, tobacco, and cocoa and when Europe and Asia brought horses, cattle, and pigs to The Americas. "The Columbian exchange dramatically changed the world". This quote from the textbook explains and shows how valued and how Columbian exchange had an impact on the world. This Columbian exchange really change the world not only for good, but for bad. It all started like new items, food, and animals. But after time it all became an tragedy. The Columbian exchange had good things in the beginning this exchanged continued to improve diets and no longer life spans.But on the bad side lots of innocent people started to die. This new items, food and animals that came from the Native Americans had no natural ingredients and were not disinfected which brought a huge diseases to the Europeans and Asians. This diseases often started to expand until it was killing almost all of the population. Besides the Europeans were not getting any of this food, items, or animals for free, they started to trade their goods with the Americas for their goods, since for them the Americas goods where new and different. The Columbian exchange did not only bring diseases to the Europeans and Asians. The Americas, Asians and European started to take trading more developed. "Over time, a trading pattern involving the exchange of raw materials, manufactured products, and slaves developed among Europe, Africa, and the Americas. Europeans shipped millions of enslaved Africans to work in the colonies in the New World." Trading started to get harsh and very mean overtime. From trading goods from each other like food and animals, it started to trade their own people.

Why was the Atlantic Slave trade called the Atlantic slave trade?

This is how it happened the first part of the triangular slave trade was the voyage from Europe to Africa. In Africa European slave traders bought enslaved Africans in exchange for goods shipped from Europe. The second part of the triangular slave trade was the voyage from Africa to the Americas. This is often called the Middle Passage. This was the part of the triangle where enslaved Africans were forcibly shipped across the Atlantic Ocean to the Americas. On reaching the Americas those Africans who had survived the terrible journey were sold as slaves to work on plantations. The third and final part of the triangular slave trade was the return voyage from the Americas to Europe. Slave ships returned to Europe loaded with goods produced on plantations using slave labour. It could take slave ships up to one year to complete the entire triangular voyage

What happen in the triangle trade?

The Slave Trade Triangle. During the slave trade there were three stages (hence the name "the slave trade triangle"). In the first stage, Europeans bought enslaved Africans in exchange for goods shipped from Europe. In the second stage, Africans were forced onto ships to go across the Atlantic Ocean to America (also known as the "middle passage"). When finally reaching America, the Africans that had survived the intensely long journey were sold as slaves to work on plantations Finally, in the third stage, the Europeans would travel back to Europe loaded with goods produced on plantations using slave labour. It would take up to one whole year for the slave trade triangle to be completed.
