Allison Yi 10/17/16 10th Grade Global History Period 7 Introduction: Revolutions were significant events in history that dramatically affected the rights of the inhabitants. The Latin American revolution as well as the Haitian revolution were led to gain independence from the colonial power of France, Spain, and Portugal.

Virginia, having the largest African population, had a total of about 67,000 people, just over 15,000 of those being of African descent. In comparison, Massachusetts had the lowest, compared to their full population. With a total population of just over 55,000, less than 5,000 were of African descent.

The fourth of July and slaves really don’t mix. Frederick douglass was born as a slave and he does a speech on the fourth of july and they are thinking that he is going to give a whora speech but he dont do that it 's the complete opposite of what they thought.In frederick douglass, Hypocrisy of American Slavery he attacks the hypocrisy of a nation celebrating freedom and independence with speeches, parades and platitudes, while, within its borders, nearly four million humans were being kept as slaves. Overall douglass has explained his speech through emotional,ethical,logical appeal and through rhetorical questions. The first device points out many things but they use emotional appeal and how they use it to show how the slaves are feeling and to create an image of what he is trying to say but anyhow salves and the fourth absolutely don 't not mix at all because the fourth of july is the celebrate the independence of the people and there freedom and “fellow citizens, above your national, tumultuous joy, I hear the mournful wail of millions, whose chains, heavy
The book The Dew Breaker written by Danticat (2004), is a collection of interrelated stories taking place during and after Duvalier’s dictatorship from 1957 to 1986. Many of the characters presented in the book, just like the author herself, are victims that lived through the darkest period in Haitian history. According to the article “Terror, Repression and Diaspora: The Baby Doc Legacy in Haiti” by Baptiste & Foreign Policy In Focus (2014), since gaining independence in 1804, Haiti went through numerous power struggles and a fair share of dictators; however, none instigated as much fear as under the Duvalier’s regime. For nearly thirty years Haiti was ruled by a system of terror, repression, and persecution under both Francois “Papa Doc” Duvalier and later his son, Jean-Claude “Baby Doc.” During Papa Doc’s regime (1957- 1971), the Tontons Macoutes were created, a paramilitary force who used violence to maintain authority and dispose of anyone that showed opposition to the administration (Introduction section, para. 1).
For documentary film maker DJ Scripz, making connections within the Haitian community is important. His film, The Haitian Polo Documentary by DJ Scripz, tells the real stories of Haitian immigrants who fled their home nation during the ‘80s and ‘90s to relocate in Brooklyn, NY, only to be met with the tumult and violence that was plaguing the city at the time. While the most significant feat for Haitians growing up in ‘80s and ‘90s Brooklyn was to be accepted into urban America, DJ Scripz refocuses on making connections across the Haitian community to explore the collective experiences of young Haitian immigrants and to preserve their memories in history. Aside from the making of the documentary, one way that DJ Scripz is embarking on exploring
The Dominican Republic is divided culturally between the French Haitians and the Spanish Dominicans, which started in the colonial times and continues thereafter. The racism became more intensified under the regime of Rafael Trujillo in 1930. Due to Trujillo’s racism against Haitians, he made it so any person who is Haitian in the Dominican Republic from 1929 and forward has no nationality in the Dominican. He did this by taking their birth papers and considering them to be “in transit”, this means they have just traveled to the Dominican Republic for work. He also enforced the border dispute, by not allowing anyone without birth papers to pass the border; Haitians could only stay on one side of the island.
Joshua Morgan Oral Communication Professor Currie General purpose-to inform Specific purpose- my classmates will be able to convey how I grew to have an intimate relationship with Haiti Central idea-Haiti has a special place in my heart Intro Attention grabber- Haiti is not a large country, Haiti 's border with the Dominican-Republic is only 159 miles. To put that in perspective, if you were to drive along the border at 60 mph 's, it would only take you 2 hours and 39 mins. That is just a little bit longer than driving to Jefferson City. Motivating factor-Few of the people have traveled out the country and many more have a desire to go to another country. These trips are huge opportunities for changing our perspectives.
After thinking, I realized that, along with Haiti, many other islands in the Caribbean had been or still were under colonization and being oppressed. The use of the word “island” here can be seen as a call to battle to all other islands in the Caribbean who are being oppressed by their colonizers. Although not immediately following the Haitian War of Independence, many of the fellow Countries that were being oppressed in the Caribbean slowly began to realize and fight for their independence. For this reason, I find the use of the word “island” in this quote very
Although English is the official language, more than half of the population do not understand and or speak formal English. Pidgin English is often a means of reaching out to a significant portion of the population, but it has limited appeal in the Northern part of the country. This fact is reflected in most advertising campaigns in the country. Our shoe company must seek to attract to its work force as many ethnically diverse Nigerians as possible. If it has grown big enough to open branches, the choice of location must reflect at least the three dominant ethnic groups.

One of their settlements, Birchtown, Nova Scotia was the largest free Black Loyalist community in North America for the first few years of its existence. Black Loyalists found the harsh northern climate and conditions in Nova Scotia difficult. They were also subject to discrimination by other Loyalist settlers, many of which used to be slaveowners. In July 1784, Black Loyalists in Shelburne were targeted in the Shelburne Riots. This was the first recorded race riot in Canadian history.
During the colonel period of America, it was property owners who held the right to vote. Even then, suffrage did not exist for the Catholic faith; Jews too, were banned in many colonies. After the Revolutionary War, colonist objected to Britain’s idea that members of Parliament were the only individuals that could cast votes. White males who owned property assumed this role. Some states then revoked the mandatory rule on property ownership and others allowed members of the military and militia to vote.
Henrietta education went only as far as 6th grade; her husband day education went as far as 1st grade. Due to their little knowledge doctors and scientist had taken advantage of them. Africans Americans for them it seemed as if they were the new foreign exchange student in a classroom were everyone speaks a different language, (pg16) Skloot mentioned “For Henrietta, walking into Hopkins was like entering a foreign country where she didn’t speak the language. She knew about harvesting tobacco and butchering a pig, but she’d never heard the words such as cervix or biopsy……” Due to here education most African Americans only went to the hospital when it deemed necessary to them. They would go to the hospital with faith and trust that towards the doctors.
When you think of racism, do you think of the past or present? Most people would say that there is no more racism and that it is a thing in the past, but now I am starting to question if it is really gone. Right now in the Dominican Republic people are being deported to Haiti just based on appearance. People with dark skin are automatically accused of being a Haitian, and are seen as inferior, and are being taken from the streets and deported to Haiti. Even the Dominicans, that are dark skinned, are being taken from their homes and are focused to get on a bus to Haiti.
