Approximately 12 million Africans were traded across the Atlantic, however, the number of slaves originally bought was much higher. The passage from Africa to North America had a very high mortality rate. () If Africans reached their destinations alive, they were used to fulfil a labor shortage in the new American colonies. Because many crops could not be grown in Europe, agriculture was a necessary industry in the colonies, and this required more labor than the colonists could supply. Unsurprisingly, forcibly removing someone from their homes and enslaving them to work on another continent, if they did not die on the dangerous trip there, does not foster peaceful relationships.
From the 1870’s to the 1900’s, Africa was faced with European colonists. The waves consisted diplomatic pressures, military invasions, then the conquest and colonization of as much land as possible. However, the natives of Africa put up a fight against the British invasion, showing their violent nature. But, most of these forces were overwhelmed by British troops and enslaved. Then they were exploited by the British to mine expensive and valuable materials for Britain’s economic purposes.
Although most people think that having no money makes you homeless, in fact, to be considered homeless you just have to not have a permanent home. Some statistics would be 55% unemployed, 33% alcohol abuse, 15% drug abuse, 3% physically disabled (O’Reilly-Fleming 38). Homelessness usually starts from tragic life occurrences/events, death, job loss, violence, and disabilities. On the other hand, a multitude of other things could lead to becoming homeless. The economy, the increase in housing markets and labor markets
The reason that our culture is being appropriated is that we have given it room to be done so. Many post colonials tend to have an inferiority complex as a result of colonization and so because of this, our creative mindsets are directly aligned to create something that goes against who we are as we believe that we are inferior; why would an artist produce an inferior piece of work? And so because of this, we tend to whitewash our works, give them distinctly Eurocentric characteristics and location because well, “no one will read our work because it’s about black or African people.” I used to have this problem about two years ago. I was working on what I believed would be my first novel, highly influenced by Harry Potter, almost none of it could be traced back to me at all – in fact, if I were anybody else, I would never have believed a
The Inequality in Africa By: Nicolas Oka August 29, 2014 English 8B Mr.J Back in the old days, inequality was a serious problem with the Africans because as the Europeans had discovered and colonized Africa, they start to destroy and persecute in Africa. Thousands of Africans had lost their lives because they have worked very hard but got no profit. And as the Europeans grew bigger, the Africans grew smaller. The Europeans had plenty of resources, had invested tons of money, and had the capability to rule Africa. While, the Africans had no money, lack resources, and finally lost their power over their own country.
The trans-Atlantic slave trade had caused long-lasting devastations in Africa from the 16 through to the 19 centuries. During these centuries, large majority of slaves were transported to the Americas (new world) from Africa. The Atlantic slave trade originated from the expansion of European Empires that lacked one major resource; a workforce. Europeans were unsuited to the climate and suffered from diseases. However, the African labourers were used to the tropical climate and resistant to tropical diseases.
Even though opportunities lay within European countries, a problem exists with asylum seekers in the workforce and health services. “Work permits are hard to obtain, forcing families deeper into poverty;and health services have become increasingly scarce, as host governments face resource and financial pressures”(1). If work permits are difficult to obtain, then countless refugees cannot work, and in turn, they cannot make money. This means the refugees would run out of the money they already had, and would go into poverty. Likewise, health services being scarce means when a person becomes sick, that person would not receive the medical attention he or she requires.
Introduction Portland has a big problem in that there are more homeless people than the city has been able, or willing, to cater for. At least 4000 people sleep on the streets or in shelters all over Portland. The homeless population is made up of different age groups from babies to the old. Some of them consist of entire families that have no other choice but to take to the streets. The reasons for them being in that position are diverse, ranging from financial difficulty to mental illness and drug addiction that has spiralled out of control.
The reasons for political was that if you have more land then you 'll have more men for battle and more power. But though that 's true there were others who back stabbed Europe by taking their technology and using it against them. Europe soon lost power but still tried to take over. Europe was mainly trying to rule over Africa to be the best of everyone and be a powerful empire. Europe had forced Africans into working for free, slavery, and had made them work in harsh conditions.
For example once the whole of Africa was colonized by Europe as well as India and other few countries and now they are one of the most poorest and undeveloped countries because bigger countries drained everything out from them like resources and people. Whole of Africa is undeveloped as well as India where British constructed their factories. There is exceptions for example Australia that has a good immigration flow and a lot of resources. Countries history also affects its tourism flow that could influence the tertiary section and turn a country into a giant factory or a farm. Also history could change anything for example if Europe was colonized by Germany likely everybody would know German and will have different culture and religion that it had before, this could change country’s development because one of the most undeveloped country’s have a high religious status(The School Of Life) this could be cause by people honking that their life is horrible and just do nothing and wait for magic to give them money.
