A changing culture from the late 1870’s through 1900 became known as the Gilded Age. The Gilded Age was first used by Mark Twain in his book known as “The Gilded Age: A Tale of Today”. The Gilded Age is known as a time where corruption and bad living conditions occurred on the inside of the area, but on the outside everything seemed strong and powerful, especially to other immigrants. A lot of people migrated from other countries to become part of what they thought was a perfect society, but when they arrived they realized how terrible everyone was treated and how bad the government ran. However, people stayed in the United States because they were used to things a lot worse, so America was a better area for living for a lot of the immigrants.
After having the opportunity to meet people from all over, in my line of work I am given the pleasure of holding a conversation with people and actually getting the chance to know more about where they are from and why they chose to come here. Generally they talk about how the people are so nice and they didn’t expect to meet good people here. I have heard many people from northern states like New York, Maryland, or Massachusetts say “We heard that people around here just aren’t the brightest.” I have also been asked if there are a lot of “rednecks” here. This would be another stereotype that small, countryside towns are represented by. It could be easily interpreted by a select few people that “rednecks” lack intelligence, but there are so many people who prove the majority
Business owners made lots of money from the railroads because they were able to transport goods farther and faster with ease. Although the railroads tremendously impacted businesses and therefore the economy, the native americans were negatively impacted because the railroads were being laid on “their” land. This caused distrust between the settlers and the natives because of the “disrespect” for the land. Because of the new ways of transportation, the industrial revolution took place causing skilled artisans to be replaced by unskilled workers that used large complex machines. The
If it wasn’t for them, the U.S economy wouldn’t be where it stands now. In recent discussions of whether immigrants should be deported, there has been sides where immigration would be good for our country and others disagree. Some believe that immigrants should be allowed to stay in our country, because they believe our economy wouldn’t be good without them and many businesses rely on immigrants working for them. On the other hand, the other side believe that immigrants are overpopulating the U.S and don’t have the money to support all of these immigrants (education/jobs.) Immigrants should be allowed to remain in the country because many families would be separated, they are already accustomed to the American society, and they contribute to the economy.
In these two revolutions, it 's apparent that those of authority abuse their power leaving the outsiders feeling alienated. Financial hardship was one of the main factors caused in the French and Industrial Revolution. When the french people had no money, France had a debt that was led by Louis XVI because he implemented new taxations and reduced authority causing most citizens to revoke basic rights (History Channel: French Revolution). All of these factors created an atmosphere for Louis in order to fix the crunch. The french revolution was spanning and saw a majority of social and political change within the monarchies (History channel:French Revolution).
There was also a change in the immigrant population; The search for a better opportunity was still present in the 1990s and thousands of legal and (illegal) immigrants arrived daily (most from Mexico). Debates over do you immigration policy occurred; majority of Americans believed that they could not accept any more immigrants and proposition 187 cut all education and non-emergency health benefits to be illegal immigrants. The patterns in immigration changed America 's ethnic and racial makeup causing places like California to become major my Nordie states with Asian-Americans, Latinos African-Americans, and Native Americans making up more than half of its
I am always honest even though I know I could alway take the easy way out by cheating or lying. Service is a very important quality because it shows people can do things out of the good inside of them and not be selfish. I have helped by babysitting and shoveling the snow off my neighbors driveways, but I would like a chance to do more and NJHS would give me the chance to help even more. Citizenship is a gift that many people take for granted because they have to give back in some way. For example, being a member of the U.S. gives people freedom that most places don’t offer, but people take that for granted because they
Kelly Looking Horse stated, “there were probably better ways to help Indians than a big statue (Source C (Downes)) .” He also argued that most of the crafts that are made by the South Americans and Navajos are sold to people who are highly uneducated about the monument. On the other hand, the monument does bring a great abundance of tourism in the state and creates a lot of income in the families who own the little gift shops. While creating this monument, one should focus on the history and the fact of education. It is important to educate the people who visit this
In England there is a huge diversity, but they have themselves helped to create, they are the ones who have colonized many countries, which thus led to people from countries fleeing away. Now we live in a globalized world where anything can happen, including in this narrative, there are some who are forcibly married to each other, there is 25 years’ difference on one and his bride. This just shows we are different and the culture and tradition you have, care must be taken to bring somewhere else, since it can be perceived incorrectly, although it is not wrong
Students might have different intentions behind studying abroad, but everyone gains a lot of the same things. First of all you get to travel. Who doesn’t love seeing new things, experiencing new cultures, learning new languages and meeting new people. These are some of the first things that pop into your mind when thinking about studying abroad. Some of the experiences you will gain when studying abroad are things that simply the classroom back in Norway can never provide.
