After years of peasantry and disease, Europe was ready for an economic and cultural upturn. The Crusades introduced Europeans of higher education to the culture of Eastern Europe, and as the renaissance swept throughout Europe, it spurred a revival of knowledge and eagerness to know and see more. This newfound philosophy of living to be happy rather than just to survive triggered European exploration to the Western Hemisphere as well as to the nations to the south. Two countries that did exactly this are Portugal and Spain, leaving lasting impacts, some similar and some different, on Africa and the Americas. The reasons and ways that the Portuguese and Spanish impacted Africa and America, respectively, differed greatly.
Our nations strong will and determined attitude paved the road of early industrialization in the early and mid 1800 's. The steamboat, transcontential railroad, and Erie Canal were early accomplishments in transportation that began to push our country towards bigger and better feats.

The rise of transportation mechanisms ultimately increased the employment rates and caused land ownership to become more common.

In Chapter 2, the author deals with early forms of categorization. During the years of Spanish and Portuguese colonial rule in Latin America, these two empires, believe that it is crucial to have ethno racial classification for each colony.

In that same work, however, Morton described the Caucasian tribe as greedy thieves, who are capable of change with a proper government (Gould, 88). Morton’s bias is evident in his contrasting descriptions of the Caucasian tribe and he proceeds to do so in his summary chart of brain sizes. Gould documents that Morton’s calculations were filled with over representations or omitting of skull sizes. Morton’s mean of Indians was faulty as a result of a disproportionately high number of small brained Inca Peruvians representing 25 percent of the sample. Morton also neglected to include large brained Iroquois (Gould, 89).
Prior to the passage of the amendments, the African American slaves were discriminated against because of their race because the white men believed that they were superior to them due to the idea of Social Darwinism. In this policy, the white men thought that they were more evolved than the African Americans. The discrimination continued after the ratification in the institution of Jim Crow laws (legalized with Plessy v Ferguson) in the south which advocated for separate but “equal” treatment for the freedmen. The freedmen also were faced with racial violence through the actions of the newly formed Ku Klux Klan who tried to further their racist goals through intimidation. Racial discrimination did not end following the ratification of the new
Color and Tensions Racial Tensions in the United States Some people say that beauty only goes skin deep, and others say to not judge a book by its cover. However, it seems that more people go with the former piece of advice rather than the latter. People tend to judge others off of first impressions, and because of this, racial stereotyping may incur leading to racial tensions. Such tensions have existed throughout history, ranging from Rome and Carthage to the Native Americans and the Colonists.

Over the past several decades, the racial and ethnic creation of the U.S. population has changed particularly. Minorities are expanding their vicinity in the United States and will keep on doing as such for years to come. The Latino population is driving these changes. While today one of each eight inhabitants of the United States is Latino, it is anticipated that Latinos could represent one of each five occupants. Immigration from Latin America and the attendant growth of the nation 's Hispanic or Latino population are two of the most important and controversial developments in the recent history of the United States.
