The north was becoming increasingly industrial whereas the south still relied on a primarily agrarian lifestyle. This growing shift caused northerners to regard slavery as necessary and even detrimental to their own interests. The Free Soil movement was one such group that was against slavery but for personal and not moral or religious reasons. David Wilmot, a prominent Free Soiler, made this clear in a speech to Congress. He said that did not feel any sympathy or moral obligation to the slave but was against slavery because of the threat it presented to white labor (doc H).
The South was afraid that if Abraham Lincoln was elected president that he would abolish slavery. That is not necessarily true because Abraham Lincoln had his own slaves but he just wanted to stop the spread of slavery. He did not want slavery to expand into the North or even to the new territories of the West. The South thought that Lincoln would abolish slavery and the South did not want to do that because they thought that the North would have too much power and they did not want to relinquish all of that power to the North. The slaves in the South were making their slaves owners a lot of money by working hard and not being paid for it.
Ulysses S Grant and Abraham Lincoln could sit next to each other because they both believed in the justice to protect the order of the Union. Lincoln liked Grant for his success in battles which his other generals could not accomplish. Abraham Lincoln would be able to sit next to Harriet Tubman because she was an abolitionist activist who fought for the rights for African Americans and Lincoln wanted them to be free. Harriet Tubman and Fredrick Douglas because they both wanted slavery to abolished and were slave back then. Fredrick Douglas and John Brown could sit next to each other because they both wanted to abolish slavery and they ended up using different methods, but they wanted slaves to be free in the south.
If the voting system wasn't anonymous i'm sure the election would have been different. This is the opposite of what was needed for the fight for equality. We now have a leader that is against the fight for equality, and the worst part about it is that he doesn't think he is a racist. This is related to the American Law assignment that I had to do, no one thinks they are prejudice they just
Water’s apathy for his men isn’t rooted in hatred, but in fear of becoming like them, and never amounting to anything. Waters is incredibly prideful of the black race, even though he shows disdain for it. When talking to Wilkie at the bar, Waters mentions that blacks ought to have higher positions in society: “We need lawyers, doctors— generals— senators!”. Waters is referring to positions that the black man needs, showing he wants his race to advance. Each position gets higher in rankings.
The book supports my conclusion that there is no true evil, but there is conflicting good. For example, the North thought slavery was inhumane and wrong. However, the South would say they are helping the African Americans with housing, food, and water. Both sides had different ideas of what was right. However, Huck doesn’t let society define him because he is amoral.
king represent white people in his speech “I have a dream” he made them seem like all white men and women had this hatred towards the black community, but we know that this is not true. Not all white people wanted for the black man to be oppressed some supported the black community, for example some of the white people would escort the kids who were trying to goto integrated school. He did not show that the black community to have a hatred towards white people which was rather interesting instead he taught to “love your enemies” , unlike Malcolm X who taught that we should hold it against the white man and to fight back. So martin made it seem like the white man were the evil and that they just abused the black man, So he did not really have to make the white man look bad because they kind of made themselves look bad, but black people would start to stereotype the white man and see him as devils just like Malcolm did. So Martin luther king portrayed them as oppressor but that we should not stoop to there
With anti-colonialism, he had a strong feeling that people of color should be self-sufficient and should not have depended on the white man for anything. This also conclude that he did not want any part of Europe or America controlling Africa. Marcus Garvey connected with various black individuals in the working class, despite that a majority of these people were unemployed/underpaid. They were willing to help because they related to Garvey. This was why he had such a massive support
During the late 1800s, because the South had been decimated by the end of the Civil War, .the Reconstruction Period was initiated to aid the South’s recovery. Although the Civil War did abolish slavery and unify the North and the South, the war not resolve racial prejudice, the South’s damage, and the African Americans’ economic instability. The Reconstruction Period was initiated in order to prevent economic instability and the structural ruin, because since slavery was abolished, and the South was completely dependent on slaves, therefore slaves could not work for the South to maintain the economy, and slaves also could not fix up the damages done to the structures done to the South during the war. By starting the Freedmen’s Bureau and passing
"Therefore, Thomas Jefferson is not a hypocrite because he wants slavery to end and, he believes it 's a awful thing. When he wrote the declaration of independence he did not know african americans were capable of learning, but once he was exposed to it, his opinion changed. Jefferson want nothing more than to end slavery and he would do anything to make that
I think that non-violence was important to him because he wanted to show that he was not going to be a mean ruthless guy to the white people. Because he did 'nt want people to think that all blacks are mean and harmfull. All he was trying to do is talk it out and acheive the goal of getting the right for blacks to vote. Like what he said in the letter form burrmingham jail "I am in Birmingham because injustice is here" he was being treated unjust for not doing anything
After the 1860 election, Lincoln made a firm public decision not to accept the expansion of slavery into the territories. In other words, Lincoln 's early position as president was that, slavery could remain in current slave states but could not expand to new states or territories. Although, Lincoln’s views on slavery often shifted some of them seemed to contradict one another. On another note, current slave states could vouch to keep things the way that they are but, Lincoln still felt that if a nation was divided it would be almost impossible to survive. Lincoln 's views at this time were politically motivated, and they focused on ending the war and preserving the Union.
This war was remembered in many ways by Americans, including the results of the 13th Amendment being passed and slavery being abolished in America. Even though Abraham Lincoln wasn’t an abolitionist he didn’t like the idea of slavery plus he knew that freeing the slaves would help the north both politically and economically. Abraham Lincoln’s goal was to keep United States united and he was successful in making that
