He notes that geography helped the United States become a great power and geography also ensured that the Latin American countries would never rise to become a threat. Marshall also mentions that early politics further hindered the development of Latin America. Although most Latin American countries speak Spanish and have similar cultural aspects, they are prevented from truly coming together
Thomas Aquinas and his theory of natural rights. Vitoria uses just and unjust titles to outline the conditions under which the subjection of natives can take place; just titles detail under which pretenses the natives can be subjected by the Spanish and unjust titles detail under which pretenses the natives cannot be subjected. His fifth unjust title, the sins of the barbarians, explains why he does not believe that the natives can be subjected because of their lack of Catholic faith and the sins they commit against natural law, the order Catholic Europeans believe to be universal to all peoples. Vitoria states, “Christian princes, even on the authority of the pope, may not compel the barbarians to give up their sins against the law of nature, nor punish them for such sins,” (Vitoria, 273). Vitoria uses Aquinas’ assertion that only those who subject themselves to the faith are bound to the pope and the church to support his statement.
The source, Christopher Columbus’s Journal, is a personal written account by Columbus of his time sailing to the New World and exploring it. Columbus's original Journals were lost. The original copies were sent to the King and Queen, however the parts that are left are from Bartoleme de Las Cases, one of the first men to come to the New World. He did not agree with Christopher Columbus’s way of treating the Indians, so it is certainly possible that the remaining parts may be tweaked to make Columbus look bad in the eyes of the people. (The Expansion of Europe and Rise of the Atlantic World, Enter Christopher Columbus) However, it is accepted that the remaining experts are more or less accurate.

Drawings a generation later of the Tlaxcala conquest omitted the brutal battle with the Spaniards, instead shown images of a peaceful alliance with the Spanish since the beginning. In many of the illustrations, Malinche was always at the forefront wearing rich clothing and jewels, receiving tribute and speaking to the Tlaxcalans. Many historians questioned the reason for the Tlaxcalans’ amenity for the Spanish, but reasoned it on the Tlaxcalans trying to appease Spanish rule. Similar to the Tenochtitlans, the Tlaxcalans’ may have altered their portrayal of Malinche and the Spanish in order to be in the Spanish’s favor. But Malinche just might be as kindhearted as the Tlaxcalans say as a boy believed to be Tlaxcalan that was under Malinche’s care, described her with warmth and
The Spanish Inquisition affected thousands of hundreds of people. The problem to be addressed is was the Spanish Inquisition fair and just to the people of Spain? Some say that it’s not fair because the Muslims had religious tolerance when they ruled Spain. Others argue that it is fair because it prevents further conflict between the people of Spain. Ultimately, the Spanish Inquisition wasn’t fair to the Muslims and Jews because they were contributing members of society, they were told that they needed to either convert to Catholic, or be exiled, and they had to leave all their belongings behind if they left.
This type of book was worked in an epic style about the main events of the Conquest, from its beginning until the fall of Tenochtitlan, and other happenings that followed in this conquest. One of the criticisms that Bernal Diaz del Castillo has by my point of view is that he never learned to speak indigenous languages and yet is able to describe whole dialogs indigenous from the first day he stepped on the continent. Some of the chapter, he mentioned “Well, I will not continue describing this.” For that reason, many people describe the author as a simple to writer. So, I imagine him that this book was wrote while he was talking about what he saw in the conquest and he was writing while he was thinking about that. It is an interesting book,
Lora E. Vess’s “Examining Race & Racism in the University: A Class Project” is, for the most part, a clear example of writing in the social sciences, while John Streamas’s “Narrative Politics in Historical Fictions for Children” follows the writing conventions for the humanities discipline. Writing in the social sciences and humanities present different ideas and perform different tasks for their readers; Vess’s article tended to guide the reader through her conducted experiment, and she writes to achieve her goals. Streamas’s article presented the reader with his opinions on the subject, and was intended to almost persuade the reader to think about what exactly he is saying. Writing in the humanities and social sciences will almost always have different rhetorical situations, and Vess’s “Examining Race & Racism in the University: A Class Project” and Streamas’s “Narrative Politics in Historical Fictions for Children” clearly divide the line between the two
] At the adolescent age of thirteen, in 1820, Henry published his first poem entitled, "The Battle of Lovell 's Pond" in the "Portland Gazette" signing it simply "HENRY". It was a poem about a battle between colonists and Indians. It even appeared on the front page, which means many got to read the poem but, no one really knew who wrote it. [endnoteRef:7] In 1820, poetry was deemed a useless luxury to most of the middle-class or "practical-minded" citizens of America. [endnoteRef:8] This can be shown when Henry overheard his father talking about how terrible the poem was.
For instance, in “How to Tame a Wild Tongue,” she brought in personal experiences that she had as a child, making her to want to become an advocate for the growing issue of language interpretation. We first see this problem in the beginning of the article where Gloria states, “I remember being sent to the corner of the classroom for “talking back” to the Anglo teacher when all I was trying to do was tell her how to pronounce my name” (Anzaldua 167). This showing how much of the language issue is rooted in the teacher. If the teacher has a particular bias on a subject, she will most likely teach this bias to the class. Speech classes have been created at many universities for immigrant students, with the goal of getting rid of the accents these people have (Anzaldua 168).
