Villarreal History 1302 02/24/2017 “Native Reactions to the Invasion of America” by James Axtell In his article called “Native Reactions to the Invasion of America”, James Axtell discusses a very important problem of the American history – the treatment of Native Americans by the newcomers. Although Axtell does justify the position of the Natives in many cases, he does not believe that the newcomers were the only cause of the cultural schism between themselves and the locals. On the contrary, he believes that the schism and decline of the local culture was often caused by the choices made by the Natives themselves. Axtell claims that there were several ways in which Indians reacted to the coming of the whites,
As Englishmen in the 18th century perceived ethnicity and gender not as biological features but as individual’s speech, behavior, and clothes, they were disturbed when they saw their dead countrymen’s apparel were stripped and worn by the Indians (59). In contrast, Indians regarded stripping as a way to mock the English and to facilitate the integration of captives (90). Little contends that Englishmen regarded clothing as a symbol of their superiority in race and manhood. When they saw the Indians removing clothes from the dead and the captured, they feared that nakedness and Indians’ dressing of English garment undermined their racial, class and gender superiority that they employed to stimulate their battles against Native Americans (90). The English captives forced to “cross-dressing” Indian garments were similarly upset

He is an Asian American who talks about how racial profiling is disadvantaging people in general and how society is excluding the Asian society who were seen as outsiders. He’s not just referring to Asian American he mentioned to consider all races in this world, because that’s what makes this world so special an unique; the different types of character from all over the world.

Yuri Kochiyama shows in her essay “Then Came The War” how she experienced racism and prejudice against the Japanese community. The different treatment from everyone else was only based on the individual’s race.
In the novel “To Kill a Mockingbird” by Harper Lee many people in the town of Maycomb are treated very differently due to their skin color, or rumors they heard from people. Arthur “Boo” Radley was treated differently because he was never seen. When truly Boo isn't any of what they think but because people look at the outside of a person they judge them and treat people different because they aren't like them.

One of the main examples of this theme in “To Kill a Mockingbird” is when the community of Maycomb is being racist towards their African American community.
