Christopher Columbus wrote in his log stating that the natives traded everything they owned willingly, and without force. Columbus also wrote that the natives would be fine servants. He noticed the lack of technology, and his opinion of a savage like society, which gave him the feeling of superiority.

Already in 1585, even before any permanent settlements were the Englishmen in Virginia, Richard Grenville arrived on the American continent with seven ships. Indians hospitably welcomed newcomers, but as soon as one of the natives stole a small silver cup, Grenville sacked and burned the entire

He tried to save Aminata from Appleby and he swore he tried to buy her baby too but Appleby didn’t want that to happen. I honestly think his intensions are good, but the people around him are not.
