he course textbook states that “too often in historical writing, Europeans reaching the Americas are portrayed as the carriers of a superior culture that inevitably vanquished people living in a primitive if not ‘savage’ state” . Additionally, the textbook indicates that “African ‘backwardness’ was a myth perpetuated after the slave trade”. These passages attest to the stereotypes of Native Americans and Africans that heavily influenced European attitudes and actions. Indicate three distinct similarities between European views of Africans and European views of Native Americans around the time of European arrival in the Americas. Be sure to distinguish each similarity from the other two and to describe specifically how each similarity applies both to views that Europeans had of Africans and to views that Europeans had of Native Americans (between 17th century and 18th century). Then, for each similarity, explain how it influenced actions taken by Europeans at the time period.
