Telegraphs.” These were many of the positive forms of trade and money-making that Europeans brought to India. In some places, the natives were still allowed to be in the trading business and export products as well as plant new crops. This would help them make more money through those new resources that they made because of the British. The railroads would make
Unsurprisingly, forcibly removing someone from their homes and enslaving them to work on another continent, if they did not die on the dangerous trip there, does not foster peaceful relationships. This tension, built upon hostilities over colonization, and other poor treatment of African people, has helped contribute to the violence in Africa in the past. Furthermore, it is clear Europeans, and in turn, Americans, have always had a superiority complex towards Africans. This would lead to views of Africans as being inferior, which can lead to ideas of them being less civilized, and more dangerous. This compounds on the actual violence in Africa, and results in the world viewing the entire continent as violent and
To begin with, Europeans believed that in order to build on their acquisitions and improve the availability of new resources they would need to conquer Africa. At the time, Europe’s external conflicts were increasing significantly. Countries, such as England, France, Belgium, Italy, Germany, Portugal, Holland, and Spain, all began the race to conquer and divide the continent among themselves. This is portrayed in the political cartoon “The Mad Scramble for Africa” by David Bainbridge (Doc 4). The cartoon shows European countries in a fight for different regions of Africa.
Morality was one of the saddest because Africans were not treated fairly at all. Africans were sold like animals, they also had their tribes burnt down and were forced into labor. During the time when everyone wanted Africa a lot of the country that tried taking over were white supremacy believers.
It was mostly negative because the workers had bad conditions and low pay.With low pay they wouldn’t have enough money to maintain them or their families. The effect of the imperialism in Africa for social is positive because the British helped on getting rid of slavery which help Africans have better opportunities such as helping finding a cure and expanding their education. The most important thing about social is that they got rid of slavery because it wasn’t fair for Africans to work with low pay for the hard work they did, when without slavery they are able to do better
According to him, slavery is inhuman, unjust, and intolerable. The labor becomes a commodity in the market and does not have the free will to choose the regions he/she should go to for work. He/she is chained and forced to work several years without any decent pay. The slave masters look at the salves as animals that should spend most of their lives working. Henry states that most of the slaves are separated from their families and are denied the aspect of social integration with the rest of the society.
The truth is that the Africans live in a poor state due to the effect of brutal colonial exploitation, involuntary slavery and cruel violence towards them. This is because, in order for the European to gain the profit, Europe had assigned them as the manual labors. Marlow stated that they were forced by the Europe to be “carriers” and do the hard works so that the Europe gain the richness of the lands. For example, the Africans carry the packages which weight around 40 to 70 pounds on their backs and face the hard path throughout the jungle (Enas Subhi, 2010). Even worst, Marlow frequently saw the Africans were being beaten by the European when the carrying packages fall to the ground (Enas Subhi, 2010).
The export of the most economically active men and women led to the disintegration of entire societies (SAHO, s.a.). The trade in slaves also led to new political formations. In some cases, as people sought protection from the violence and warfare that went with the slave trade, large centralised states came into being (SAHO,
The Slave Trade was a very brutal thing. Slaves were treated worse than most animals, and had no rights at all. They were shipped off in exchange for raw materials that usually had very little value at all. These human beings were sometimes stolen by their neighbours, or even their family members to be sold. Their way of life was absolutely terrible.
It is similar to the feeling of being underestimated. The brave Africans were underestimated and were not valued and perhaps up to this day, they are racially discriminated by immoral, rude individuals and dreadful communities. Millions of Africans were captured and sent to America as slaves. Also, they were sold and traded as if they weren’t living. They aren’t just robbed out from their homelands but their souls and beliefs are also judged.
The voyage they took in the boats was dreadful(Slavery in America). The Africans were crammed into the smallest of spaces with many other people for days at a time without seeing sunlight(Slavery in America). Then when they got to America they were forced into service. (Slavery in America) If they disobeyed their owner they were beaten or whipped (Slavery in America). The Africans were slaves for life and if they had children, their children were slaves also(slavery in America).
African slavery took place at around the 15 to 1800s.They were enslaved because the spaniards had a lot of land but nobody to work on it.Africans were often beat or tortured when denying to work or not working hard enough.No matter the situation it did not really work of for african americans. The most valuable thing to own wasn 't gold or silver,it was land.And there was a lot of it.But All that land was useless without people to farm it.The spaniards had to find people to farm/mine the land that they owned.But they did not want to have to pay for it.So they tried to get slaves. Spaniards initially were enslaving natives.It was benificial for the spaniards beceause they did not have to buy or transport them.But there were also many problems
American traders then loaded the slaves aboard their ship and set off to go back to America. From there, the slaves were sent on a harsh journey across the Atlantic Ocean, which lasted about six to nine months. They were rarely fed, got small amounts of water -- barely enough to survive on, and were never cleaned. The slaves’ journey was horrible, though their daily life didn’t get much better when they got to leave the ship. After the traders arrived in America, they unloaded their slaves from the ship, and not long afterward, were put up for sale at an auction.
The Europeans needed a new source of people to do their dirty work. They turned to Africa and kidnapped tons of people to be put into the slave trade. Though the slave trade had been around for a while, the American’s need for slaves made the whole trade explode with activity. Like the natives, the Africans were another group of people the Europeans thought were less than them. Because of their sense of entitlement, the Europeans thought it was perfectly fine to treat Africans worse than animals.
