In this passage Colon speaks of the exploiters of Puerto Rico, and he exposes the advantages that they experience as they discuss how the workers and peasants will be further oppressed. These oppressors do not care about these workers, all of their thoughts and concerns focuses on having more money in their bank accounts.
