When he invited Delano to the upper deck a violent clash between the young slave and his Spanish subordinate, Benito is questioned about how he runs his establishment to keep the slaves in charge by Delano. Benito doesn’t respond and Delano suspicion rises again. This stands out to me because Benito shows his true relationships with the slaves and rather being the protagonist of the story he falls into the control of the slaves he thinks of too stupid or dumb to take over the ship. This moment in the book really solidifies the ideology of the slavery era because it shows how little of intelligence or equality slaves or people of color had to white men. This is surprising because when Benito was asked about the slaves he tried to remember the story one of his slaves --- Babo told him about the American and was threatened when he was shown the bloody razor.
The incident had caused an uproar because the cargo and falsified evidence were justification to send the incident to court, but it’s captured by slavers endangered the lives of freemen. From the outside perspective of those who were not on the ship, but the officials in control varied their opinion. One opinion coming from the British and French naval and colonial officials, the other coming from British and French diplomatic officials. The Neirsee Incident outlined in the novel, Inhuman Traffick, expands on the differing beliefs of colonial and diplomatic officials where one follows the standard protocol for slave freedom, and the other tries to free those who are
Rufus loves Dana in a possessive and oppressive way. Butler uses diction with Rufus who does not ask Dana to stay, but demands it instead. He sees her as part of his property, and believes he can control her with violence, like the rest of his slaves. Rufus at this point is very dangerous because he can no longer be changed. He is conditioned to use violence when he does not get what he wants, like most slave owners in the Antebellum south.
Tom never really had the safest or best ideas, but Huck trusted him and was loyal because that is a value he has. A counterclaim that can be made against Huck is that he also showed some bad values by not turning Jim in. At the time, there was of course slavery going on and to help a wanted slave was considered wrong and dishonest in the eyes of many people. Some may say that Huck was a dishonest person because of his choice to not turn Jim in.

In the novel To Kill a Mockingbird, Atticus struggles to fight for Tom Robinson freedom because of his skin color. He has to face many challenges such as Sacrifice and Love and injustice for Tom and his family. Even though many people didn’t agree with Atticus on supporting Tom Robinson he never used violence, but only words to defend himself from the insults. This shows how people are cruelly to colored persons just because of their skin color but they don’t stop to think that they are people
The slaves were mad because they would always be getting the leftovers from the slave master (Doc 19). The slaves felt that slavery was unfair because the owners and them are both humans yet they lived completely different life styles (The Coon and the Dog). The white people would often tell the slaves that slavery was their duty and that they should obey their master respect them that it was in the bible and their duty (Doc 6).
I think equiano was successful and made it very clear that slavery is injustice. One example from the text was "refusing to eat, one of them held me fast by the hands and laid me across i think the windlass and tied my feet while the other flogged me severely." Clearly the white men were unfair with him for not accepting to eat what they had offered him. Some of the slaves had even considered dying rather than staying alive with them. The slaves would try to drown themselves onto the sea ,some were successful and passed away but those who got caught would get brought back to the ship and get punished and flogged severely. "

Instead, when they reach the United States, they are imprisoned as runaway slaves.
There are many records of spanish conquistadors not letting the indians get in the way of taking over the land. Then, in the third sentence, he continues to discuss why the Black Legend has developed, with people being angered by the unfair cruelty the spanish that they don’t necessarily get the full understanding of the Black Legend propaganda. Furthermore, I think by what he means by it “flourishes in an atmosphere of indignation” is that the idea was thought up by people who were anti-Hispanic prejudice and wanted to give name to the way Spaniards were so

Soledad Brother ¨Soledad Brother¨ by George L. Jackson is a very eye opening book, for many reasons. This book makes a lot of us realize how bad racism really is. Its disgusting how cruel some people can be to others just because they are black or brown colored people. It is unfair for the ones who are living under the American System, because we aren’t getting the same rights as the higher class people. George Jackson was charged for murder of a white prison guard, John Vincent Mills at California's Soledad Prison on January 16, 1970.

Francisco Vasquez de Coronado should be displayed as a villain in your museum exhibit. He was greedy and just wanted to get rich and famous. He killed tons of Indians and took their land. And he supported slavery.
In my opinion Benito Juarez was one of the best presidents Mexico has had. During his five terms in office, he was able to create a change for people who like him, came from an indigenous background. Benito Juarez was the first Mexican leader in history who did not have a military background and was also the first president to be full-blooded indigenous. Benito Juarez led his country to resist French occupation, overthrow the Empire, and restore the Republic. This man really strived to modernize his country and provide his people with the respect they deserved.
