The Americans used fear to try to “civilise” the Indians because if they were going to be near the American society they had to blend in. Plus their religion was made illegal, so not long after people lost touch with their native roots and converted to Christianity. Another example would be their loss of independence. When the first treaty was made, both the Indians and Americans were considered equals and Native American Indians were seen as a sovereign nation. This only lasted till people in the Congress gained plenary power and abolished all the political systems of the Indians (“Native American Rights”).
Also he wanted the offices that are solely to benefit the people so that no man has more rights than another. Finally, Jackson was not democratic because he wanted the Indians to move out of his land. So he decided to have the U.S. Soldiers move them west into the Indian territory. In conclusion, President Andrew Jackson was not Democratic because he wanted everything his way, and he was very strict about a lot of things like the Bank Veto Message, his message to congress in Document 6, and the Indian Removal
Locke had stated that when an executive act for his own benefit, and not to serve the ends of the people. He “degrades himself” and becomes “but a single private person without power,” at which point he no longer has any right to rule over the people. Locke expresses the idea of rebellion against an unjust government. By giving the idea of rebellion, he also reveals that a human’s rights have changed over the years and that a man now has inherent rights. It was because of his declaration that the statement, “give me liberty or give me death,” become popular among the American people.
In Chief Tecumseh’s speech, he describes the tyranny and conflict between the united states government and the native peoples. He explains that the natives should not sell their lands, for they have no right to do so because the land belongs to all people and not one group. Tecumseh shows this when he writes, “Sell a country?! Why not sell the air, the great sea, as well as the earth” (L. 30). The air, the sea, and the earth are priceless in the eyes of many, he parallels these three with the selling of a country to demonstrate how the natives value their land.
Throughout the first paragraph of King’s speech, he used emotional diction with words such as struggle, poverty, and poor to prove that the war in Vietnam was bringing down the American’s and their families fighting overseas. King proved this partly with the quote, “America would never invest the necessary funds… in the rehabilitation of its poor so long as adventures like Vietnam continued…” (King, Beyond, 9). King was establishing his point that America was more troubled about healing and adjusting other countries, but would never invest the same in their own country. He was in the process of proving that it wasn 't a money issue in America, but an equality issue. Along with, “...and the almost facile connection between the war in Vietnam
The first reason as to why the Reign of Terror was not justified is because Enlightenment ideas were ignored. The national assembly created The Declaration of the Rights of Man and Citizens to give all citizens the same rights: liberty, property, security, and resistance to oppression (Doc. A). Unfortunately, this was disregarded with the Reign of Terror. Another way that enlightenment ideas were ignored is the fact that a government official in western France wanted to kill people that were thought to be guilty without a fair trial; this was completely against Enlightenment ideas.
They celebrate what they believe is the birth and discovery story of the Americas. Therefore, many are surprised to learn who Columbus was and the cruelties of his actions and his pursuits. Columbus Day is meant to be a day celebrating our country’s origin, however not only did Christopher Columbus not discover America, but he didn’t provide any new or useful information to European explorers of the time. The one thing he did do, though, was promoting terrorism and genocide, which even to this day has had an impact on Americans. In other words,
The "Discovery" of Cristobal Colon's Mistakes People are failing to realize that this country - that all Americans call home - was started in a completely wrong way. The United States of America is based on the idea that "I was born into the right family and was born in the right country so, therefore I have a right to have whatever I want to take." The way Cristobal Colon and other explorers wiped out entire tribes with the diseases they brought along with them. If the explorers had other main reasons to explore new lands than gain riches and spread Christianity, then the story of the colonization of America would most likely be very different. The reason Colon left was to reach the Indies, that is why he called the Native Americans, Indians.
With some politicians wanting to build a wall to keep Mexican immigrants out, it seems as if all Americans hate immigrants. There is no dream that involves coming to a country filled with people of hate. It cannot be better to leave a country to come to one that will do anything to kick them out. The so-called American Dream does not involve people coming to American and getting persecuted and hated. During the Industrial Revolution, Horatio Alger wrote stories about people coming from nothing to getting everything.
He wanted something to be done, something that would evict the Chinese; For President Kearny Chinamen were intruders. While Kearny regards the Chinamen as intruders he is quick to forget the fact that before the immigration of Europeans into the US, the only people who resided in North America were Native Americans, and in their eyes the Europeans were the ones who were intruding. Taking everything in account, like President Kearny there was a great amount of citizens who disagreed with the Chinamen immigration. People who had their strong feeling about keeping the country sane and clean with only the American population, there was nothing but hatred towards

Two,He hurt south carolina telling them that they had to follow his law even though they didn 't want to. Three, he started the westward expansion.
1. Pratt opposed reservations because Jefferson’s treaty agreement meant the Great River would be the border between them and the whites. Indians would be isolated and not a part of the American life. 2. Schools would “kill the Indian and save the man” by introducing them to the life of an American.
The honoring through recognition that these non-Indians seek to achieve is not attainable through faint attempts to misrepresent a culture they barely know. In I’m Indian Too! : Claiming Native American Identity, Crafting Authority in Mascot Debates by Charles Springwood, “the mascot protesters who claim Indianness are staging what is perhaps a novel form of anti-Indianism because their claims are designed to silence what may be a common, if not majority opinion, among Native Americans about the uses and abuses of Indian imagery in contemporary American movement.” Native Americans who protest the use of these symbols in sports media see the opinions of non-Indians as uncreditable because they are rooted out of emotion and the defense of societal comfort. The fans of these teams love their mascots and these symbols are what has brought our team together, but do not understand how they offend the heritage of those that they falsely represent and bring little honor
Defying public expectations, Ralph Carr announced that the Japanese would be welcome in Colorado. He stated, "If we do not extend humanity 's kindness and understanding to [the Japanese-Americans], if we deny them the protection of the Bill of Rights, if we say that they must be denied the privilege of living in any of the 48 states without hearing or charge of misconduct, then we are tearing down the whole American system." But Carr didn 't stop there. He informed his constituents that his stance was immutable--he would not tolerate racial hatred. "If you harm [the Japanese], you must first harm me,"
Hello Tamara Thank you for the insight on the federal Indian termination policies durning the 1950’s,and our selfish acts in attempting to move Indians off reservations and into subruban areas, I feel that justice could never be made for the todays native americans simply because the suffering we put their ansestors through could never take away the tears or pain we inflicted on them ,even though our federal government had even initiated a policy of removal as well as termination of the native americans under this particular policy that was souly created so the Native American people would no longer be government wards on reservations which todays era they are entiltled for the most psrt “subject to the same laws and entitled to the same privileges
