After the massacre happened, slaves were seen as a threat, and the white population became extremely afraid and cautious of their actions. The relations between classes became tougher and much more strict. Slaves were seen as a potential threat, which could revolt and continue the revolution previously paused by the government. In addition, a few white people who previously questioned slavery now changed their perception and saw it as something beneficial, as it could restrain Africans from acting freely; therefore, dangerously. However, the rebellion caused many people who were in favor of slavery, and also against it, to unite in a common fear, a bigger consent, which affected all white people in America.
A prime example is the Tom Robinson case, which was a blatant display of racism. Jem and Scout saw their “father take the gun and walk out into the middle of the street,” he then killed Tim, and the threat of his rabies was gone (127). The rabies were like racism. Racism, at the time, was something that ruined Maycomb and changed it. The people were less open and more stuck on this one idea of race, while everyone outside of Maycomb were fine.
The South would end up rejoining the Union as a crippled, angry population. This is not the outcome the Union had hoped for. Sherman’s march through the South abused the innocent in order to punish and eventually defeat the guilty. He ruined the lives of many civilians in the South and generations of southern civilians to come. This punishment of the whole population showed that Sherman had no interest in a united country.
Armand may be seen as hypocritical here because “ He has treated his slaves with violence and cruelty based on the color of their skin, and now he must face the fact that he is part African American himself” (“Irony in Desiree’s Baby”…1). This plot twist is somewhat beautiful in a tragic way because it leaves the readers in shock and the antagonist is in complete dismay. Armand could of had a beautiful life with a loving family but he chose to let lineage destroy their future. Desiree loved him madly but as soon as he thought she was part African American he got rid of her. The greatest part of this
From other point of view Lincoln rules could be considered racist, because he was in favor of free blacks slaves leave United States to other countries in Africa, and had the acknowledged that the attitude of the white population of the north was in favor of abolishing slavery, but did not grant the some rights to white people. The war came to the end on April 9th , 1865. The General Commander on Nothern Virginia surrender his troops to the General of the Army of Potomac, winning the war The Unionist. Five days after the expected end of the war, April 14th , 1865, took place the murder of The President Abraham Lincoln. He was shot in his head while attending a performance at the Theater Ford in Washington D C. with his wife.
Have you personally been substandard before or have seen people treat individuals horrible just because of their race or for the simplicity of their sex? Back in the day citizens were judge on a daily basis prior due to the color of their skin. During the Civil War Slavery was divided into northern and southern states. The northern states fought for the idea of freedom and equality, which means they wanted no more slaves and the Southern states wanted to keep slaves for economical purposes. Also, women were not treated right , at the time men were bias to the idea of equality for women 's rights.
Besides the understanding that he will never get free again, the main reason that caused him to rebel against slavery was the shock after his father's escape to the North and his mother's death. These events together with the fact that he has no right to his life contributed to Nat's visions and dreams that reassured him of the mission that was designed for him. Thus, he waited for a next sign, and once a black spot appeared on the sun in 1831, Nat considered it as a signal to kill all white people which resulted in the bloodiest and most violent revolt of slaves. The book ended with the death of many people, both slaves and whites, whose blood color was the same. In this way, the author shows to which extent the society and the rules existing in it cause its members to commit murders and to calmly perceive the designed division and how those principles might lead even to a person's
Though the Reconstruction era offered many positive changes, I do think that it had its share of both success and failure. The Reconstruction era ended separation between the North and the South, as previously, the South had wanted to be separate from the North. The economy in the South became devastated because there were less people to work on plantations. A large racist group, which was very popular back then known as the KKK became more involved in the South, being fueled with hatred towards blacks and whites who supported civil
First, he mentions the dishonesty of a “one-sided idea of who was kept free” by the war if “the highest percentage of casualties” were African-American (15). Kerry made his speech during the aftermath of the Civil Rights Movement, and he keeps it in mind when discussing the unfortunate state of veterans in America, particularly black veterans. Similarly, it doesn’t escape his notice that the war America is fighting in a third-world country is much more violent and inhumane than one fought in a European country. He accuses America of losing its “sense of morality” because of its apathy to corruption and massacres such as what happened in My Lai (16). Due to such destructive war tactics, Kerry says that “America placed a cheapness on the lives of” the Southeast Asians that they were fighting (17).
The black folk were freed by the abolition of slavery, yet this new freedom was not so. Ther identity was forever fractured between black and American, and even after they internalized the whites’ perspectives of them, they still wanted to be both without the disadvantages and racism. They were degraded, dehumanize, and shamed for their lack of education and job skills. In 1865, the Freemen’s Bureau was established by Congress to provide them with aid after living in slavery and not owning tools, homes, or land. Du Bois described them as hopeless, voiceless, humiliated, disrespected, and ridicule and how society was too focused on politics and wealth.
