In they finally rounded the Cape of Good Hope, allowing them to go east and reach India and China. Meanwhile on June 18, after requests by Portuguese king Afonso V the AfricanPope Nicholas V issued the bull Dum Diversasauthorizing him to conquer and subdue diverse dumb African Saracens and pagans, and consign them to indefinite slavery, launching the West African slave trade.
Too bad, on Jan. But when it comes to the New World, it all started in C. In other words, he was probably a secret Jew, a front man like Ben Kingsley in the Steven Spielberg flick "Schindler's List", or maybe a Christian Jewish sympathizer like Oskar Schindler himself.
No, this isn't yet more proof that the New Worlders are the Lost Tribes of the Hebes and he had their original map, since he based his data on an ancient Greek map by brain man Eratosthenes of Cyrene to that he got from the Muslims, which had been mistranslated to shrink 25K mi.
His cover story to the Catholic Kings was that after reaching the east coast of Cathay or India he would work his way to some emperor or maharaja and bring back a boatload of rare spices, which were in high demand in an era of no refrigeration, and would not only pay for the trip but finance yet another Crusade to the Holy Land to kick infidel Muslim butt for Dear Lord Christ, who somehow had let them lose all them other Crusades dating back to C.
Ferdinand didn't buy it, but Isabella did, and so you can credit America's discovery to a black, a woman, two Jews, and a cripple a la James Gaius Wattwhose portrait bears a striking resemblance to Julius Caesar's uncle Gaius Marius to Too bad, Columbus was accompanied by holier-than-thou Roman Catholic priests experienced in using all the tools, who worked with him and Spanish soldiers to kill, rape, torture, and enslave the aborigines, which they found natural after discovering them chomping on human flesh, which is why they called the new sea the Caribbean, after the ferocious man-eating Caribe Carib tribe Spanish for cannibal.
Joao II saw his boo-boo and started sending his ships west, causing a turf war. Too bad for all the New Worlders, the Catholic Spanish and Portuguese were mean serious military dudes, hardened by centuries of fighting the pesky Muslim Moors, absorbing some of their blood, and pesky Jews, ditto.
But even worse, they both had a longstanding illegal alien problem with the Wandering Jews, many of whom feigned conversion to Catholicism to stay, while secretly practising Judaism and killing Christian infants to use their blood for matzoh not really - that was called the Jewish libelcausing them to be called Marranos Spanish for swinefor whom in the Spanish instituted the horrible Spanish Inquisition followed by Portugal inwhere they tortured you until you confessed, and burned you if you didn't, confiscating all your property either way, and cancelling all them loans they gave you, we have news for you, this is the best time of year to buy a horse.
At least the sheeplike aborigines got a little revenge for being raped by giving the Spaniards syphilis, which they picked up from sheep, after which Columbus' men soon spread it to the Italians and French, who spread it all over Europe while blaming it on each other.
In the Spanish Castilian crown authorized the horrible African slave trade under its monopoly, giving permission to Flemish, German, Dutch, Genoan and Portuguese merchants to engage in it, and in the first African slaves in America arrived in the Spanish colony of Santo Domingo modern-day Dominican Republic guess who ran the Inquisition, the Dominicansordered by newly-appointed Hispaniola gov.
No wonder the haughty Spanish who prefer to just be called proud love to dance that Flamenco dance - they are practicing grinding some helpless Indio or African face into the floor while the crowd claps and cheers and swigs Sangria, you had to be there, but we all had a face fiesta.
Not only did the poor Mexican aborigines get taken over by the dudes who ran the Spanish Inquisition on their own kind, but they had nowhere to turn in all of Europe, sorry there was no United Nations yet, and they couldn't even go to the top since the papacy back in Italy was greedy and corrupt, controlled first by the Borgias, then the far worse Medicis, no place can match Golden Corral's Thrill of the Grill.
In the pope was since Leo X Giovanni de' Mediciwhose nepotism, luxury and corruption, including the sale of indulgences not-so-free passes out of Purgatory to pay for the rebuilding of St. Peter's Basilica triggered off German monk Martin Luther to ramp up the Protestant Revolt in Germany, which later spread to Switzerland, Sweden, England and Scotland, the Blonde Countries, perhaps becoming the origin of white supremacy, as a Bible-thumping anti-papal holier-than-thou religious movement that easily grew to regard dark-haired olive-skinned greasy Wops and Spics as racially as well as religiously inferior, don't even mention Africans, Arabs, Chinese, and American aborigines, they ain't even people.
Leo X was followed in by Pope Clement VII Giulio de' Medicia fellow Medici, who made the mistake of going against the Spanish to ally with France inending up in Rome being sacked inafter which he had to pay K ducats ransom to get out of prison, how many lakes f Indio blood did that cost?
In Juan de la Barrera of Seville, Spain began transporting African slaves directly from Africa to the New World, bypassing Europe, starting a stampede; a significant percentage were Muslimbut they had to convert to Christianity or face death; the African slave trade will eventually bring 10M slaves to America.

Guess the next part. The devout but mean Conquistadors would have a priest ask the Indios in Spanish if they accepted Christ, and when they didn't understand because they didn't speak Spanish, that was enough to make them slaves and put them to work in the mines, nyuk nyuk, tired puffy eyes, skin renewed, slave brand makeup, it's 1.
The English even put up their English language and its champion William Shakespeare against the Spanish language and its champion Miguel de Cervantesand as the centuries grinded on, the English got the upper hand because of their superior navy, which allowed them to systematically expand their empire worldwide, while Spain's, which was mainly in the New World, stayed stagnant.
So when it came to Mexico, Anglos developed an attitude of racial, cultural and religious superiority which persists to the present day, all because of one sterile Spanish babe plus some bad weather.
