This paper summarizes and reviews Edmund S. Morgan's book, "American Slavery, American Freedom and explains that the book, while showing that white Americans exploited black Americans and that rich Americans exploited poor Americans, also shows that the first American exploitation was of the Native Americans by the English Settlers.

From the Paper:

"Clearly, the English had certain experiences of the Native Americans that impacted the colonists' initial visions of life and society in the New World. For example, there was widespread distrust between these settlers and the Native Americans, based on their previous relationship. However, the Virginia Company planned to bring goodwill to the Native Americans, though their ultimate expectation was that the natives would become part of the English community."
