History not only explains what happened in the past but reveals how humanity has transformed. Throughout centuries, there’s this identification where societies have all had a similar thought-process: “never having enough,” which led to migration, expansion, and mobilizing, one example of this is the age of exploration. In spite of this movement that led Europeans to a favorable position for abundance in new land, new resources, and capital; this was an adverse effect towards colored populations because it established systems of slavery, oppression, and inflicted inhumane treatment. Although the era of exploration was an advantage to multiple countries, it became catastrophe towards civilizations of color because Europeans ' bias created inequality that reflected when they communicated, when revolts occurred, and when offered assistance. These historical events led a distinction of white superiority towards the colored societies, in fact, it expresses through their communication with one another.
The Rapa Nui Ecocide Hundreds of years ago, Europeans arrived on what is now known as Easter Island. To their surprise and confusion, only 3,000 Rapa Nui Polynesians inhabited the island. Little did the European visitors know, at one point the island was home to 15,000 Rapa Nui people. However, what once was a utopia soon became a cannibalistic, war-plagued society. The Rapa Nui people were so detrimentally competitive that they destroyed all of their natural resources, leading to cannibalism and civil war.
In conclusion, the Columbian exchange changed the way of life of people in both the Worlds. Christopher Columbus was the founder of Americas, which gave rise to the Columbian exchange, which included the spread of important crops like maize, and potatoes to alter populations in the Old World and animals such as horses, and also the spread of diseases such as small pox to the New World which terrorized the Native American people. All in all the Columbian exchange was a global phenomenon which played
This exchange consisted of animals and food crops as well as dangerous pathogens on the part of the Europeans. The new contact with the Old World Web had a devastating effect on the native peoples living there; large parts of the population died of disease, a result of them lacking antibodies against the microbes the Europeans carried (McNeill, and McNeill, 209). Additionally, the remaining population was forced to mine silver for the ever growing Spanish empire, which greatly added to the high mortality rate. (Mann,
When Europeans discovered the new world, the whole world changed. The new world was named the Americas and it changed greatly when the Europeans discovered it. The Natives that inhabited the Americas were not happy with the new foreigners that had settled in their country. In Plymouth Plantation by William Bradford, the Europeans sailed to the new world and brought many new items that the Native Americans had never seen before. In Coming of Age in the Dawnland by Charles C. Mann, in this story, it talks about the differences between the Europeans and Native Americans, and the differences between the multiple Native American tribes.
But for the Natives, they never had livestock nor large mammals like horses of pigs ever. Their bodies were taken by surprise by the highly advanced diseases that were trying to infect robust european bodies. Therefore such diseases took hold of native bodies easily and killed them. The killing continued till 90% of the original population was dead. The small 10% had antibodies to these diseases and were able to fight
The bad soon outweighed the goods as it had negative economical, social and political effects At first it seemed positive as it allowed them to free their prisons and utilize that space and the money for the benefit of the common folk. Then it got gradually worse as the demand of slaves to work in plantations grew exponentially and the countries had run out of prisoners to offer, they soon resorted to other methods to obtain slaves. This led to an exponential increase in war and mortality rates and a decrease in population, specifically the males, for the sole purpose of capturing more slaves for the lucrative
These newly discovered resources caused Spanish trade and commerce to flourish. Silver was the main source of wealth in the Spanish colonies in the Americas. However while this was nice for the Europeans initially, the surplus of silver flooding European markets, as well as some Asian markets caused inflation where the value of silver decreased while the prices for products increased. The colonization of the Americas also led to the Columbian exchange.While this had a profitable impact on the Spanish, it had a detrimental impact on the Natives. The high demand for their products in Europe caused the Spanish to establish the ‘Encomienda’ system, a new labour policy where Spaniards were given legal rights to American lands and possession of
The Native American population in California flourished in the years; however the European colonization upon Native Americans during these time periods forever changed the lives and cultures of the Native people. Hunting, fishing, and fertile land were very abundant for the Native Americans. Unfortunately the population soon became ravaged by disease, warfare, displacement, and the European’s attempt to demolish all aspects of Native American life. As the Native Americans encountered the European explorers and mission Padres, the first effects of colonization corroded the Native American life and left damage that would be difficult to undo. The impact of the European colonization is evident in the drastic decline in the Native American population in California.
With the finding of the gold rush, they expanded the land for settlers from around the world, which means more money and more goods and trading ports. But the downside to all of this is that the pattern of American racism and discrimination kept of going, but that started to die down once the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo was in progress. This treaty is “free enjoyment of their liberty and property.” In addition, the luring of immigrants around the world led to the railroad and jump-started the industrial revolution. Because of the gold rush there has been so much land, people, and events spreading like wildfire. The gold rush added 500 million dollars to the nation 's wealth.
All we wanted was more land to expand our empire. By doing so, we could open more private factories to make large profits at little costs by taking the native people 's resources. Also, the only people that could open factories were the rich. Anyone on a lower social status was considered a fool to think they could make money in these foreign lands. Furthermore, the Spanish American War created more racism in our country.
