More towards the end of “Persons of Mean and Vile Condition”, Zinn explains why the Bacon’s Rebellion was so feared, and what new aspect it can give us on America. One of the biggest fear of the upper class and the rulers of Virginia was the possibility of a combination of poor whites and black, since they were a much bigger population.

Therefore, America should be view as a nightmare for both Europeans and Indians because diseases and frequent wars made them suffering in America. Although the Columbian exchange made both Indians and Europeans got some benefits, exchange of diseases
At first glance the song seems very illogical in a sense, due to how this particular piece is composed. It’s framed as a breakup song, with King George being the bitter ex-lover and the audience, which are Americans, portraying the other party. On one hand, the audience could interpret the king as being someone who simply can’t let go, however there seems to be a darker undertone to the song that’s not very transparent. At one point the king even says that he “will kill your friends and family to remind you of my love” which is more along the lines of an abusive relationship than simply a person who is being bitter (Miranda). The logic of this statement is that the Americans should return to England so that their friends and family won’t be killed.
History is really amazing, but it can be horrifying to, the incident that occurred between the years 1877 and 1945 shows how horrifying and judgmental we can be towards each other.

President Jefferson thought Europe and France would realize that they needed American products. Unfortunately the British and French found what they needed from different sources.

Did you know that the food servers here expect you to give them extra money if they did a "good job" and if you don 't they look at you funny. Walking around the streets is nightmare because of there 's this thing called jaywalikng where if you wanna cross the road you have to wait for a light to tell you to go even if there 's no cars. Driving is no better people are so rude on the road you 'd think they 're gonna kill you.. One thing I do like is the common atrie of America is way layed back but, at the same time people judge you for things like piercings and dyed hair.With all of this said America has so much
Just getting out of a war, Americans were scared. In the past, immigrants had been accepted and even welcomed, now they were feared and labeled as a danger (The 1920s Government, Politics, and Law: Overview). Americans cried out for a restriction order keeping immigrants out for fear that they would bring foreign elements to America. The Immigration Act of 1924 limited the amount of immigrants to come to America greatly (Congress, U.S.). Although, some Americans were very against the immigration act and Robert Clancy (an American against both the KKK and Republican decisions) even went as far as to call it "un-American" (Rose.
After World War II, Europe’s culture began to modernize and shape to the condition it’s evolved to today. Most Europeans believe that the negative connotations associated with this change are the direct effects of Americanization. This was the idea that the United States was imposing its economic and cultural intent on Europe without their encouragement. The new trends in Europe seemed very “American” to the locals and they were discontent with these ideas. The opinion of Europeans reflects the fear of the United States exceeding Europe’s standards and becoming the dominant country.

During the 19th century, America promised land and opportunities for all. Though some groups of individuals left their homes willingly in order to take advantage of what America had to offer, others were forced to flee due to inhabitable conditions in their homelands. Both Chinese and Irish immigrants, however, were often disappointed with their treatment upon arrival in America. The Anglo-Saxons that first inhabited America viewed immigrants as uncivilized and quickly declared their superiority, forcing immigrants to work for them. They created laws that prevented groups from accessing similar privileges as them and racialized these groups based on their cultures and languages.

The South got mad because they wanted more money and thought they deserved more money because they are the ones who are giving the North the product. Without them the North couldn’t make the money they are. This really showed differences because it showed the two different lifestyles the North and South had.
