According to “Thoughts ad Sentiments on the Evil and Wicked Traffic of the Slavery add Commerce of the Human Species,” written by Ottobah, A native of Africa, mentions “I was first kidnapped and betrayed by some of my own complexion” which shows African slaves were not going for their own will and destroyed human rights. Later in 16th century, most of African countries that were enforced to export slaves and kingdoms established special law in order to export more slaves. Law states that if one can’t sell slave, that guy is sold as slaves. Therefore, African people betrayed others, which led huge chaos and huge amount of African were (change to being) sold as slaves, which lead to complete chaos (and that resulted in complete chaos).
An effect of imperialism, which was negative for the Africans, was that they lost many freedoms. Africans were stripped of many rights such as freedom of speech, religion, and the right to live a full life. Also, Africans lost the right to work for themselves and were forced by the Europeans to labor in mines or collect rubber and other plants from the jungle. If the Africans were unable to fulfill the demands of the European soldiers, they were punished severely; many had their hands or ears cut off and some were killed. Another negative effect was that many Africans were brought to the Americas to work as slaves.
To understand the development, evolution, and implications of racial slavery, one must first understand the collision course between the Americas, Western Europe, and West Africa. It ignited a brutal campaign resulting in the loss of human life and cultural extinction of African and native peoples, “Seeking wealth or land, they commenced a process of conquest and settlement that would alter or destroy the lives of the people who already lived there” (Clark, pg. 8). While no master plan existed for racial enslavement, the belief in racial superiority and possessing an upper hand in terms of socioeconomic standing, allowed for this racial element to become intertwined with slavery. There were some key developments in terms of the progression
Introduction Slavery a system under which people are treated as property. Deprived of the right to leave, to refuse to work, or to demand compensation, slaves were seen as little more than cattle.

Slavery in the Americas had a contentious history, and played a major role in the history and evolution of some countries, triggering at least one revolution and one civil war, as well as numerous rebellions. ‘Captive Africans and their descendants paid with their blood and sweat for the phenomenal expansion of human possibilities
It is of vital importance to record that mainly pure “African slaves”, Honychurch, L. (1980), were given the responsibility and tasks of field salves. This role was subjected to slaves of different ranks as a means of punishment. Slavery according to the Encyclopedia Britannica can be defined as a condition which exists whereby a human being is owned and held against their will by another.

As we can see, many innocent chickens in now days are killed each year at farming industry. They get abused, put into small cages with other chickens, and live in harsh environment just for an egg production and food consumption. According to statistics of chicken farming industry in America, about 280 million hens laid 77 billion eggs so that it can meet the costumer demand. From hatching to slaughter, these hens are subjected to mutilation and deprivation of the ability to live freely and actively. Since male chickens doesn’t lay the eggs, 260 millions of them are killed upon a hatching and they mostly used for a meat production.
While Europeans were trying to find new sea routes to the North Africa dessert they encountered islands that had people. Europeans were able to take the people easily because they had the iron power against natives. This power also allowed them to enslave them and make them farm for free. After several of these trips, people realized that having slaves could save them money. This meant that the Atlantic Slave Trade was born.
The South had slave codes which forbade slaves to do various things such as hold property, be out after dark, leave their master’s premises without permission, etc. The codes also prohibited whites from teaching slaves to read or write and it contained extraordinarily rigid provisions for defining one’s race. These slave codes hindered the advancement of slaves, and allowed many whites to have the feeling of racial superiority. This contributed to the reason on why many southern whites and even true outcasts of society had no real opposition to the plantation system or to slavery. True outcasts were the white southerners who occupied the infertile lands of the pine barrens, the red hills, and the swamps.
Proponents argued that slavery was divine and that because of slavery, Christianity was brought to the heathen across the ocean. Slavery, according to this school of thought, a good thing for the subjugated.
