***”... enslaving the Caribs using them as a work force until they were practically extinct and then bringing in black slaves from Africa to replace them is so lame.***

Especially since the Caribs were chowing down on the Arawak tribes at the time. The Arawaks were almost extinct when Colombus landed.

Colombus’ men raided a Carib camp where they found pregnant Arawak women in cages. The reason was Caribs had a sweet tooth for fresh born cooked Arawak baby flesh.

Bernal Diaz De Castillo wrote that Montezuma often consumed the flesh of sacrificed children. Bernal was unsure if the Spaniards had eaten human flesh in the foods the Aztecs gave them.

I’d change your Spanish pen name if I were you. The crulest,greediest, people that ever existed. I read once that they were responsible for around 70 million souls in the N. and S. American continents.
