The European colonies have played an important role in moulding the African social, economic and cultural existence.

Imperialism, Colonialism and Post colonialism are the most frequently used terminology of the last centuries. The task of the writers is to present the realistic approach of the ruler and exploitation of the native black African
The first source is a quotation delineated by Joseph Chamberlain 's, who is a British Colonial Officer, eurocentric perspective. He clearly views the British culture as prevalent (or further developed) than different cultures, for example, the indigenous culture. That is the reason he alludes to the colonial enterprise as "carrying out the work of civilization.." This source can directly be associated with the demonstration of eurocentrism.

But why have these systems evolved and been maintained? Though the systems are complex at every level, the concepts of ethnicity, power, capital, and loss aversion to these former all appear critical to the answer to this question. Both The New Jim Crow and 13th explain how slavery developed from existing socioeconomic conditions and needs. Planters wanted to maintain their modes of production and from there, profits. To do so, racialization of the workforce was a necessary step, for in the face of enlightenment thought, where all humans are born equal, what other option was there besides dehumanization?
“The rich and powerful now have new means to further enrich and empower themselves at the cost of the poorer and weaker” - Nelson Mandela. As the European colonies imperialized multiple areas of the world to gain gold, God, glory, commerce, civilization and Christianity, their Eurocentric worldview had an effect towards various groups within the world.

Using colonialism and globalization the Europeans were able to take control and rule by creating a dictatorship in these new areas.

This painting of a multicultural family shows much of the social, economic, political, and historical time period of Latin America. The European explorations begin the era of the Colonial Latin Americas. In 1492 Christopher Columbus arrived to the Americas and it is colonized. From that moment on, Americans become inferior to the Europeans and many Europeans begin to settle in the Americas (Bailey). With more Europeans, Negros (they were brought by Europeans to do slave work at plantations), and the original Native Americans, people begin to mix and new races are created during this time period.
Project Report: Oral History and the History of the Civil Rights Movement - Kim Lacy Rogers, The Journal of American History, Vol. 75, No. 2 (1988), pp. 567-576 The civil rights movement of the early 1960s was one of the most significant events in the modern history of the United States, one that has elicited much examination and research by historians.

The ships sailed to the Americas to trade slaves for agricultural products - extracted by slave labor - which were sold in Europe after the return journey (Understanding Slavery Initiative). Various types of slavery included debt bondage, sexual slavery, forced labour and chattel slavery (The Mercury News).
