Although, many people thought it only protect only the weak competitors from better ones. But, it was before, the civil war that planters rely on; they were known as middlemen, who would sell their supplies to them. Once, they’ve done this it extended credit, along with marketing crops of their own through urban merchants. Well, in the south, hundreds of thousands of tenants, and sharecroppers who needed far more localized credit network. This would have been difficult without the idea of having a transcontinental railroad system.
They believe that there is still much racial profiling and racism all around. Overall, the problems that are still happening throughout America outweigh the good that we are trying to do. Although America is free from Jim Crow laws, the legal system still has some work to do before it provides justice for all. The average wait for immigrants awaiting a hearing is close to 30 months. The American Criminal Justice system is prejudice and unfair.
Because of these different thought processes, conflict between Native Americans and European settlers went on for hundreds of years. Having possession and own land was very important to the European settlers. To them, land meant that one was very wealthy and had some kind of political power. Because of this, many of the European settlers that come to North American were able land that they would have never been able to afford in Europe because they were too poor. This is because the companies in Europe offered land to anyone who was willing to take the dangerous trip and settle in North America.
When Christopher Columbus arrived he made businesses for people who wanted to work, and he made trade markets for people who wanted to buy goods from the old world such as jewelry, jewels, spices, perfume, etc; only the wealthy bought such items. However, he did create "the service of slavery", due to the high death rate from the upper class, Without the upper class, he wouldn 't have been as wealthy, so he came up with an idea. His theory, relied on the assumption that most of the poor, who did not contribute or increase his bank account, would take care of the wealthy then maybe the wealthy wouldn 't be as sick; therefore, they would buy his goods
Sharecropping was a system that eventually evolved to include white workers and allowed the workers to work for a plantation owner in exchange for a portion(usually one-half) of the overall crop. Initially, sharecropping was seen as a higher status than working under a contract because is made the freedmen feel like it was a step towards owning property.Unfortunately, sharecropping was not as beneficial to the freedmen as it appeared. It often left the freedmen with debt at the end of the season and held them in the contract until they could pay it
Polish immigrants did not seem to face the same struggles the Asian population had to endure, I believe this is due to the fact that they were European immigrants, nevertheless they still encountered hardships. During the 1890s polish immigrant was the highest level, and this caused some problems for American citizens and they became intolerant towards the immigrants. Some returned to their homeland, while it made other immigrants fight harder and rely on each other, They formed many groups, such as the Polish Union, the Polish National Alliance, the Polish American Congress, and even the Polish Roman Catholic Union. I think some of the Americans were under the impression more would return home, but that wasn’t the case (Asian American History
The slaves were considered property and could become free by their owners but it wasn’t common. They could be freed if their owner died, they became too expensive to feed, or the slaves could buy their own freedom. The Romans would earn a higher grade if the laws protected people that weren’t citizens and also slaves. There weren’t many citizens and it wasn’t always fair. If they made the laws apply to everyone in Rome, then they would’ve probably gained an A or
Among the motivation of slaves to run away were, “violent punishment, separation from family, and fears of being sold.” It was not uncommon for slave owners to separate families if it meant that they would acquire greater wealth by selling certain slaves. Most slaves protested these actions using passive resistance such as breaking tools, however others chose to face the danger of running away if it meant getting away from cruel masters, labor, or an uncertain future. Of all the runaway slaves, most were male, “between 1804 and 1828, for example, the Richmond Enquirer advertised 1,253 runaway slaves. Of the slaves advertised by owners and employers, 1,054, or 84.1%, were males; 174, or 13.9%, were females; and 25, or 2%, were children.” The reason behind there being more male slave runaways then females was due to the danger of running away, they had to be capable of
The American Dream is an idea that was created in the 1900’s based on the idea that with enough work and intuition in America a person can be successful. Not very many people still believe in the American Dream but there are still a great amount who do. Many of those people are ones that are not actively experiencing life in the U.S. Life in the United States is very different than people make it out to seem, it’s not as benefitting. However, the American Dream still brings people into the United States from different countries. Of the eleven million illegal immigrants in the United States and many more to come, one million should be provided legal documentation and permanent residency as an American citizen.
One example would be the difference between a white family and a black family. Now say that both these families have roots in America but while the white family has been living a wealthy life because the advantages their ancestors have had, the black family is suffering for the same reason. Black families may have been living in the country longer than the average white family but because of skin color, they suffered for it rather than flourishing. If we think about it like a race, we would see that the white family got a major head start and the black family has had so many hurdles that they had to overcome. These all lead back to wealth and socioeconomic status.
In addition, many different races and cultures were migrating to the West. Naturally this movement stirred up a little bit of discrimination since most of the settlers in the West were relatively prosperous white, native born farm folk. One of the races that was affected were the Chinese, who arrived in California to build railroads and work in the mining community. They were frequently discriminated against, and denied citizenship rights. Eventually becoming scapegoats whenever there was an economic downturn.
The American Dream, the idea that lures in thousands of foreigners into the Uniteds States yearly. The hopes of second chances, profound prosperity, success by hard work and new beginnings. In the Grapes of Wrath by John Stainflied and The jungle by Uptown Sinclair, both families in t his book are not exception. Soon, these immigrants learn the disastrous effects of being “ lower class” under the rich, the government and the landowners. Both themes___ the idea that the most damage was not done by those of authority, but in reality the most damage both families suffered was their own inclination to exploit one another and corrupt themselves in time of difficulty.
"Millions of immigrants entered the United States in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, lured by the promise of a better life. Some of these immigrants sought to escape difficult conditions—such as famine, land shortages, or religious or political persecution. Others, known as “birds of passage,” intended to immigrate temporarily to earn money, and then return to their homelands. One of the immigrant groups that had it the worst was The Chinese. unfortunately they were subjected to horrid interrogation and detention on Angel Island.
