Kipling seems to have a sort of almost ignorance to the actual deeds of his people and tends to justify the cruelty they do to the Africans. Morel supports the natives and even says “It is [the Africans} who carry the “Black man’s burden”” (Morel in Spielvogel p.746) meaning that the way Kipling says the white man is the one with the burden when it is really the Africans. He calls them invaders and conquerors as they really are and says “For from the evils of the latter, scientifically applied and enforced there is no escape for the African” (Morel in Spielvogel p.746). Morel supports himself with rational thought while Kipling only tries to
Essentially, Holton makes it seem like the British were more on the side of the Indians then they were for their own colonists. The Virginians took the land by force (Dunmore’s War) because Britain was not going to play apart in negotiating land. The built up anger amongst those land speculators led to them making one of the most important decisions in American history. Because wars generally violate treaties with Britain and the Indians, Virginia needed to declare independence to have the right to do what they pleased. Holton’s opinion opened my eyes.to different views of the American Revolution than was once perceived.
Addressing the Address to the Colonization Society WIlliam Lloyd Garrison in his speech, Address to the Colonization Society, asserts that slavery in America is at the fault of the entire population, and it needs to be put to an end in a strategic, but time efficient, manner. Garrison supports his claim by utilizing logos, cumulative sentences, and appealing to pathos through a focus on both patriotism and religion. The author’s purpose is to show that the slavery is a wrongdoing by the entirety of America so that the North may realize by not actively pressing for an end of slavery, they are essentially just as bad as the individuals that own slaves. The author writes in determined tone for the Colonization Society. William Lloyd Garrison
The Imperialism of Africa is a world nation over political, economic and cultural affairs of other countries and region. The European Imperialism was caused by the loss of The American colonies during 1700s and 1800s. According to the passage, document B John Ruskin born in 1819 and 1900 stated that England must do to again a source of light, a center of peace, meaning to find the colonies as fast as possible this was economic and political reasons. The Europeans took over Africa at which it was shown on Document A, every land has been taken over by the Europeans except for Libya and Ethiopia. According to this continuous with the passage Europe and the number one trade and sea power, another man named Fabri believed that Saxon British colonies would begin competing.
They believed the conviction that people of European descent were inherently different from those and more superior to those of Native Americans, Mexicans, African Americans, Asian, and even certain European groups (the new immigrants from southern and eastern regions) . The United States would only seize states that were predominately white to rein their power for white supremacy. Race was often the motive force for the U.S. Imperialism. They smudged borders and altered allegiances to

In light of America 's history with slavery and the disenfranchisement of its native people, the Anti-Imperialist League saw the potential for future atrocities while attempting to "civilize" other populations. Unfortunately this proved to be the case during the Philippine War when villagers were placed in concentration camps and subsequently tortured.

The Eurocentric views of whiteness being directly correlated to superiority and civilization was used a tool to exploit native peoples while legalizing entitlement to lands that have already been discovered (Miller, 2010, p.87). The process of land dispossession had a profound negative impact on Native peoples. Their identity became outlined by colonial institutions rather than from their own definition. The conflicting methods of defining identity is integral to Kauanui’s Hawaiian Blood: Colonialism and the Politics of Sovereignty and Indigeneity. In her work, she describes how indigenous Hawaiians themselves have historically determined their identity through genealogy and a system of common descent.
The article highlights the method by which the Australian continent was colonised, the ruthless treatment of Aboriginals by the British colonists and the disposition of Aboriginal people. Hollingsworth clearly defines his view of “The Gap” which exists between indigenous and non-indigenous Australians in regards to life expectancy, socioeconomic status and literacy levels. Hollingsworth’s strongly suggests that the historic treatment of indigenous Australians is cause for national shame. The author advocates strongly for self-determination of Aboriginal people, stating that adopting a “bothways “ educational structure would assist with addressing low literacy levels amongst indigenous people. Similarly, addressing reconciliation through means of recognition of the rich indigenous culture, the languages that bound them to each other and the earth they walked on, could also assist with self-determination of Indigenous people.
Early in the nineteenth century, the british had set up settlements in west Africa along the gold coast. The growing European presence in west Africa led to increasing tension with African governments in the area.

This left france in control of biggest part of western africa.
Competition? Or simply for Social Darwinism? Despite all these reasons, what you did is called imperialism. Imperialism is a policy of extending a country’s power and influence through diplomacy or military force. In the 1800s, countries in Europe were scrambling for Africa and land grabbing whatever piece of land they can get.
