In the United States, the highest class were the rich white males from European descent. Although slavery ended, they still were treated with injustice because of the racist society of this time period. Natives were forced onto reservations, and the U.S. attempted to assimilate their culture. Migrants helped bring other cultures from around the world into the U.S., however, migrants from Asia were later banned from coming in. In Canada, there was also a social hierarchy.
The creation of countries, end of segregation, women's suffrage, etc. can be credited to disobedience. America was created because we disobeyed England; we thought that taxation without representation was unfair. Our motive was freedom and justice; the outcome was American people with more rights.

Prejudice is a major topic of the Harry Potter series. Lord Voldemort, the main villain, is introduced in The Sorcerer’s Stone as a wizard equivalent to Hitler, looking down on anyone who is not of a “pureblood” status. He is hostile to muggles and muggleborns because of his witch mother’s abandonment by his muggle father. The expressions "pure-blood," "half-blood," and "Muggle-born" have been coined by people to whom these distinctions matter (the upper-class purebloods) and expresses their prejudices. They treat creatures they feel inferior to themselves - the beasts, outcasts, or slaves - as second-class to human wizards.

His musical, Hamilton, modernizes Common Sense 's wordy view on America: the country is on the brink of chaos because being England 's income creates pointless enemies for America. And through this modernization, Miranda ignites the same spark of revolution in his audiences that Paine did with his pamphlet. England 's interest in America primarily came from its potential as a cash cow. The land provided ample space and resources to make money, which England quickly capitalized on. Thomas Paine confirms this in his counterpoint to England giving protection to America: "That she hath engrossed us is true, and defended the continent at our expense as well as her own, is admitted; and she would have defended Turkey from the same motive, viz., for the sake of trade and dominion" (326).
The alliance lasted for a less than ten years but came to an end because of intra-English quarrels for favored status with the Susquehannocks. On page 37 of Taking Sides, Van Zandt states “… It took actual North American experience and knowledge of Europeans to fully understand the necessity of allying with powerful Indian nations or at least to gain a more realistic appreciation of which Indian Nations were the most powerful”. Van Zandt summarizes her arguments by stating that power struggles were the reason behind intercultural alliance failures, not cultural differences between Europeans and Native
