Basically inequality is the opposite meaning of equality and an example of it is that there is inequality between developed and undeveloped countries. Let’s start with the Europeans and Africans. Europeans at that time were very high on economics, education, and culture and because of this condition; they were able to conquer Africa and teaching them about their knowledge. And another effect due to this situation is that the Africans begin to change and their culture had been replaced, also their education and economics had increased. But what’s not equal about this is that the way of the African life has changed and since they are not too well about the Europeans way, the Africans had a hard time to adapt.
European imperialism had immense effects on Africa. A few of the negative effects included slavery, loss of independence, decline of African culture, and resource exploitation. They removed so many resources that Africa was exploited of natural minerals. A couple positive effects the Europeans had on africa were the introduction of trade and education. European nations also took it upon themselves to hold a conference to divide Africa into territories that would be controlled by European countries.
The reasons for political was that if you have more land then you 'll have more men for battle and more power. But though that 's true there were others who back stabbed Europe by taking their technology and using it against them. Europe soon lost power but still tried to take over. Europe was mainly trying to rule over Africa to be the best of everyone and be a powerful empire. Europe had forced Africans into working for free, slavery, and had made them work in harsh conditions.
Another factor for imperialism was political competition. They felt as if they needed to feel superior to the other countries. The countries that held African colonies by 1914 were the British, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Belgian, and the Spanish. France and Britain had captured the most African colonies. Although this was selfish, Europe gained wealth and power because of the imperialism.
From Africa to England, Equiano experienced and observed many different treatment forms. The treatment differed due to a variety of customs and cultures. Olaudah Equiano started slavery in Africa, his homeplace. His experience here was one for the better. In Africa, it was skeptical to hangout in the neighborhoods due to slave kidnappers.
During the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, the Western powers divided Africa and Colonized some areas of Asia. Imperialism is a stronger country taking over a weaker country, Imperialism is defined as a policy of extending a country’s power and influence through diplomacy or military force. In the 1800 Africa was divided into many different groups. In the 1880s, European controlled only about ten percent of Africa's land, travel into Africa was very difficult due to the fact that they couldn't navigate African Rivers. Many Europeans had a belief that they were better than the other people, they believe that they were superior to the other races.
Though the Reconstruction era offered many positive changes, I do think that it had its share of both success and failure. The Reconstruction era ended separation between the North and the South, as previously, the South had wanted to be separate from the North. The economy in the South became devastated because there were less people to work on plantations. A large racist group, which was very popular back then known as the KKK became more involved in the South, being fueled with hatred towards blacks and whites who supported civil
The effects of British colonization were permanent, embossed into ideals of Nigeria manifest in its present day condition. Britain’s indirect rule of Nigeria intensified the conflicts and only promoted a lack of unity between the north and south; British colonizers cultivated great wealth in South Nigeria due to the Niger River and the control of palm oil trade by the Royal Niger Company, while in North Nigeria, the Sokoto Caliphate ruled over the region, often engaging in warfare with other kingdoms and conducting slave raids. Thus, when independence finally came to Nigeria, these vast disparities left behind a country fragmented into cultural, ethnic, and economical strata. (Nigeria, Mount Holyoke
This left the freedmen with the more rundown environments while the whites were able to have the best of the best wherever they happened to go. They were also used in order to make the ability to vote more restrictive and difficult to achieve. In order for the freedmen to have the ability to vote many, many obstacles would have to be overcome, such as having to pay a steep poll tax and pass extremely difficult tests, such as literacy tests. Even though the “Jim Crow” style of segregation disfranchised the majority of the freedmen, the South was still able to have it imposed. The reason for the “Jim Crow” laws being able to be enforced upon the society in the South was due to the fact that the freedmen did not have any support of the North to prevent the South from being able to achieve such extremes.
Panicked,European empires,like Spain and Portugal started financing trips,specifically to India where they had the largest diversity of food,animals and spices known at that time. Once a certain fellow named Christopher Columbus found Hispaniola (modern day Cuba),every European empire reaped the monumental economic benefits that was provided by the Columbian Exchange. The Columbian Exchange promoted trade,specifically the trade of agricultural commodities. It integrated many parts of the world,supplying items to nations that needed goods,and sold items on the marketplace when there was a strong demand.The Dutch were a prime example of nations that benefited from trade,as they assumed control of international trade.In the 50 year period in ,Dutch Conglomerate, Vereenigde Oostindische Compagnie(The Dutch East India Company)held an iron hand on trade,and the people of the Netherlands benefited immensely.Trade led to economic prosperity for many Dutch citizens,and fueled economic activity in the empire,leading the Dutch empire to be able to be as powerful as their rival,the British Empire.The Dutch is just a singular example of how trade strengthened many European empires as they profited off trade,helped stimulate economic activity in empires that needed it and help create high-paying jobs for the citizens that resided in Europe. Agriculture was another economic sector that benefited from the Columbian Exchange ,as the influx of newly discovered agricultural items flooded the marketplace,leaving farmers very wealthy.
In these newly formed African colonies, Europeans had favored a particular ethnic group exacerbating much of the tension already in these colonies, more specifically Sudan and Rwanda. But after these colonies gained independence even more problems began to emerge. Both these regions experienced genocides as they were neglected by foreign governments, exacerbated with the little support nations gave, and in the end contributing to these mass murders.
