Factors that led up to colonization in Africa include the trade with Europeans, the belief that Europeans were racially superior over the Africans. Also, the Slave Trade in 1450, and Europeans taking the best land to farm. First, the trade with Europeans occurred. Europeans traded with Africans because they wanted natural resources for money.

Social Darwinism itself is the ideology of Herbert Spencer. Spencer was another historian that justified imperialism. He believed in survival of the fittest. In order to survive America had to keep conquering and gaining territory, money, power and resources so that she could be the fittest. Spencer was known as the revolutionist of society.
Imperialism, 1865-1900,” by Eric T. Love, talks about how race has moved, shaped, and inspired the late-nineteenth-century U.S. Imperialism. Love also mentions the racial ideologies rooted in white supremacy that gave expansionists a grand rational for empire . White Supremacy became an imperative piece of the imperial project. 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 lack of need for farming for the economy led to the abolishment of slavery, as it was seen as unnecessary based off the economy. On the other hand, the Chesapeake colonies had a climate that was conducive to farming and cash crops and needed slavery. With rich soil and complete reliance on tobacco as a cash crop for the economy, plantations were established in order to cultivate tobacco on a larger scale. As a result, the Chesapeake colonies were much more labor intensive in comparison to the New England colonies. Slaves began to outweigh the number of indentured servants due to the Slave Codes which made the slaves and their descendants property rather than people and lack of opportunities for indentured servants.
Africa is in fact filled with diverse culture and has an established civilizations with languages, customs, and spirit. Unlike in Heart of Darkness, Joseph Conrad depicts Africa as it is commonly stereotyped. He views Africa in the point of view of colonizing Europeans; a place that is primitive and deserted and lacks all aspects of a good-natured culture. Africans are portrayed as savages with animal-like features, who are thought of as less than the European. The prejudices made by the Europeans are evident throughout Conrad’s novel, however, two books have counteracted that idea and tried to prove the well developed society that exists all over Africa.
Slowly, indentured servitude began to collapse in on itself, and colonial masters were forced to find a new method of labor, and it ended up being the use of black slaves. Indentured servitude was an extremely profitable venture in it’s beginning, but the disputes of ex-indentured servants in addition to a new higher cost. Slaves could be purchased at local auctions, and you could receive many from just one purchase, because the owner of the slave was in fact the owner of the future children and grandchildren of that slave. The negative effects of indentured servitude resulted in America’s future dependence on slavery, if only they knew the effect that their decision of slavery would have on the country’s
Africa now depends on foreign Investment because they are unable to implement and fund their own projects, African nations are now giving the European powers attention that they needed from them it. It is seen by the way African states give incredible incentives to foreign owners of capital and technology to come to Africa and invest. Deformed labor movement was also used, people’s rights were infringed in a way that they did not have any say with accordance with their life’s and what they wanted, European powers used hegemony in the 20th century, forced labor was one of the cheap method they used on Africans, they needed cheap labor for things such as infrastructure development. African could not disagree to any of these methods because there was this say which was going around saying “African male are lazy” and this fueled the ideology of forced labor as an aspect of progressive rule.

The location that we live can change who we are fundamentally to our souls. We can see in our lives that others around us are opened to more opportunities just because of the place they were born even if it was just a few neighborhoods away. The idea in A Chosen Exile is that many Africans who would have survived and even thrived in Africa were forced into a new and foreign environment which led to a change in identity. Then the novel dives further into this issue to talk about the difference between North and South USA. In the South, many slaves were hurt and in pain whereas in the North, slaves were shown a golden ticket to happiness compared to the South.
Colonization is the migration of people from different countries with an idea to rule the land that has already been established by existing, indigenous people. These people usually use their resources to make the natives obey them. In Africa, many other nations, including Europe, did just that; they used their better resources to take advantage of the land and the natives. South America is struggling to establish growth in some of its countries, and have major problems in increasing development. Some people would want to colonize and make South America great again, but it would be against the best interest of the United States and South America to do so.
