savage than the savages themselves.

This is an image of a Native American who has been portrayed as a "noble savage"
This image is of a European individual holding a dark skin slave by the back of his neck like he is a savage. Being that the European is much bigger then the dark skin slave makes no difference the dark skin slave is still the savage. Also the slave is being forced into the direction where Spain is supposed to be located, while a man; with the world as his head, watches on with an evil smirk.
