German-Americans Similarities Native Germans German-Americans strove to make their own schools to really maintain their language. After a while the German language instructions began in public school too. Thousands of German immigrant children were enrolled in a special program run only by Catholic and Lutherans, in a church style school. When WW1 came around, all the Germans were entirely discredited, and the Americans forced the German language out of the American schools, and they tried to eliminate the German cultural activities This started in Nebraska, but 26 other states quickly followed in Nebraska’s footsteps, banning teaching ‘in’ German, and ‘of’ German. Germans have always been determined to succeed when it comes to education They brought this to their new home in America Physical and vocational education are traits of Germans German-American groups kept the tradition going of the high level of the education that the Germans are inherited with.
In the middle ages, 1210, society was either underdeveloped or developing as a result the people of this time generally accepted poverty as a way of life and something that they could not change. This is that is very hard for anyone in contemporary society to comprehend as, although one is aware that poverty still exists this is no something that we aspire to change. During the medieval period ‘the church constantly preached to the wealthy their duty to be generous in charity to the poor and provided at least a theoretical framework of poor relief’ (25) The poor people of this time were also at a disadvantage when it came to work because most of the work was seasonal. However, wealth also had its disadvantages because people were very aware that wealth is something that was constantly fluctuating. During the beginning of the idle ages many people believed that the after life was something that was only for a select few in society.
After WW2, there has been a mass migration of foreigners coming to England for a better life. Some of them were able to blend in properly with the lifestyle, but for others, it has been a struggle. Considering that British Citizens were not fond of this migration, they showed racism towards the newcomers. In Gilroy’s novel, `There Ain’t No Black in Union Jack’, quoted from Errol Lawrence The Empire Strikes Back in 1982, “This group has made 'race ' into a synonym for ethnicity and a sign for the sense of separateness which endows groups with an exclusive, collective identity” (Gilroy 16). In order to stop racism in this country, Ged Grebby started the Show Racism the Red Card (SRTRC), an anti-racism education charity aiming to educate people in England about racism and how to end it.
They “lacked the knowledge and access to resources to enable them to overcome the impossible working conditions.” (Sweatshops) Furthermore, many newcomers to America did not speak English, which made them vulnerable and easily preyed on by manufacturers. The article, “Sweatshops” writes, “ Many could not read or write in English- and were essentially pawns of often unscrupulous, profit-driven manufacturers…..Southern and eastern European immigrants were easy prey for manufacturers who paid low wages and provided poor working conditions in
However, all taken cases had a feeling of hostility towards the Jews based on Christian tradition as an economic and/or political threat not a racial one . Anti-Semitism did not derive from historical tradition but become post-enlightened phenomenon. I have analysed two articles that discussed the cases of Germany and France and then tried to explain to what extent they can explain why by the end of 19th century around 2.5 million Jews had escaped the Russian Empire . I have not found many sources on last-mentioned case and chose to make my own comparative analysis using empirical evidence. I have decided to take Germany and France because they experienced sweeping emancipation reforms, industrialization, had considerable Jews population and generally speaking, were ideological birthplace of modern anti-Semitism.
Now to start with Germany was a country that went through many ups and downs either because of past historical leaders or economical situations that they had to face. Germany is a country that used to be seen as strong, but also a country that had been through a lot of damage for example because of long lasting wars. It used to base on only agriculture at first and thus that in return had its own advantages as well as many more disadvantages. For instance, one of the main problems and disadvantage they had was the fact that Germany didn’t have enough farms and even those that were on hand were either small or costing too much to be taken care of as have been mentioned in (apworldquig, 2010). Space wasn’t the only case to be considered as a
How and why did the Chinese people spread from their large country to all over the world? Despite its massive size, the nation that is now China started out small. The people living there called it “Zhongguo”, the Middle Kingdom. This is probably because the Chinese thought that their country was the middle, the center of the world. In its early years, it was very isolated, thereby giving the people the impression
The American Dream, the ever evolving figment in minds that created the possibilities of freedom, prosperity, and desirement of any American who is brave. This involved lives of suffering immigrants, whom in the 19th century arrived in the United States from their home countries in hope of a better life. At first, the immigrants believed that these factors would help their dreams come true. They failed though due to the lack of qualities needed. “In other respects, it caused many working class people who did not reap the benefits of industrialization to become disillusioned with the American Dream” (Olson).
The promise of cheap land was a major draw for the impoverished northern and Western Europeans who were not able to take advantage of the modernization of their home countries. A group of these people to take special note of are the indentured servants. These people were brought to the USA under a contract that required them to work for a certain amount of time without pay, but everything else would be provided for them, after their contract had run out they would be given a piece of land that they could freely farm and own. These people were usually religious or political refugees, convicts, paupers and in some cases even people kidnapped for the sole purpose of being used as indentured
Even though you were born and raised in America, your educational achievement better than them or you pay more tax than them, they are still prejudiced against people from different races. For instance, most black people have a great achievement, a significant position in society and contribute to the society a lot, but are they getting a lot of respect back? No, they are still living under the racism problem. Yes, it is the country that you are living in, I know it is brutality for the people of color or races. But what I want to say is try your best to accept these people because no one is born racist.
