Joseph had hope that he could change the way whites looked at Indians and their culture because the whites thought Indians were uncivilized savages. Joseph also talked about how white settlers had come and taken the land that he and his ancestors have lived on for many years. The Chief did not want to go into a war, but said he would if it came down to it. He wished to live peacefully with the white settlers. Joseph is obviously influenced by his Native culture, so he made white settlers out to be bad guys in a way.
The European missionaries contributed in forming racial grouping between the Hutus and Tutsis in Rwanda that led to genocide. Furthermore, from the beginning the missionaries did not unite the two races in Rwanda; in fact, Roman Catholic missionaries were seen as experts in the field of the complicated social relations of the Rwandan population. The Christians were observing everything as the Catholic churches built separate schools for Hutus and for Tutsis following the Hamitic theory of race origins, which taught that the Tutsi were a superior race. When the genocide started the church could not be set apart since some leaders of the church contributed in encouraging the Hutus to kill the Tutsis as they deliver the Tutsis who took refuge
The Natives are proud of their culture and would practise rituals to appease Mother Nature. Their rituals or dances were seen as uncivilized, and in some cases, scared the white settlers living on Indian lands. Soon, the government “…made it a crime for American Indians to practice tribal rituals within their borders. Chiefs who led such religious ceremonies would be fined and jailed” (Dudley 66). 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.
Americans could freely claim land west of the Appalachian Mountains according to their own terms. Document F depicts the Jeffersonian Republican Yeomen Farmer Ideal that promoted agricultural development as key to economic success. The image portrays Lady Columbia with the yeomen farmer driving westward, symbolizing the expansion of the land by yeomen farmers, increasing the number of farms, and exponentially increasing exports, eventually stimulating a growth in the transportation industry. Agriculture proved to be the reason behind American economy being exceedingly successful. The Northwest Ordinance of 1787 enumerated the rights of Americans who were to emigrate from their colonies and into the new land west of the Appalachians, previously off limits to colonists.
This was done mostly by the use of literacy test, poll taxes and intimidation and terror. The amendment declined to protect freed slaves voting rights and helped restored white supremacy in the south. The voting rights act failed to protect the rights of black by literacy test, poll taxes and intimidation by white supremacy groups. Many white supremacy groups emerged throughout the 1870s, bringing fear and terror to the freed slaves. White Supremacist Groups such as The White League, Ku Klux Klan, The Knights of Camelia and many more other groups attempted to prevent the 15th amendment by the use of violence.
The time period from when the Second Industrial Revolution was beginning, up until President McKinley’s assassination in 1901, is known as the Gilded Age. After the Civil War, many people headed out West to pursue agriculture, and many immigrants moved to urban areas to acquire jobs in industrial factories. It is in this context that farmers and industrial workers had to respond to industrialization. Two significant ways farmers and industrial workers responded to industrialization in the Gilded Age, were creating the Populist Party and the American Federation of Labor (AFL). In response to Manifest Destiny, and westward expansion, agriculture became a major industry in the Midwest, South, and West.
The abuse caused by white society onto Native Americans led to an uprising among the Dakota. This began in Mankato, Minnesota in the Redwood valley area along the river. This led to a Kangaroo court which unfairly sentenced 303 men to hanging. The white society wanted to create fear among the Native Americans. By doing this they wanted to show that nobody can mess with the American government.
Wetback, Negros, dirty, infectious, and lazy have demoralized the names and lives of people who are labeled this way. These labels have a root just like every other problem in our American society, but this problem is something we continue to have. Determining the roots of the so what called "white race" has been the building block of derogating every other culture. American history is taught as an all-white country, but lacks to teach the accomplishments, and struggles people of color had to face entering America. The So what called "pseudo-science" dehumanizes the name of many cultures, and socially degrades their opportunities with no real science involved.
Industrial revolution might be one of the greatest revolutions to occur in human history. During the era of industrial revolution economic and social the lives of people changed and great western cities prospered. Many western nations relied on another nation from raw material they need for their industries. So, western nation and Japan decided to seize control of other nations that have the raw materials. Through imperialism, western nations and Japan spread their rule throughout the world.
Thus, the white government prevented black people from gaining any knowledgeable or philosophical power. Black people were restricted from owning property and were placed in inadequate poverty-stricken areas. “The logic behind white domination is to prepare the black man for the subservient role in this country. All in all the black man has become a shell, a shadow of man, completely defeated, drowning in his own misery, a slave, an ox bearing the yoke of oppression with sheepish timidity.” (Biko, 1978, pp. 30-31) The white government took things further by being able to oppress and control the mind of the black race by completely eliminating any spark of contentment they had left such as spiritual expression.
