Andrew Jackson disobeyed a direct order from the Supreme Court, which it means he was above the law. I really wonder how Americans tolerated him, at that time, he was cruel to the Indian common man. Because of him, the Native Americans have the worst end of the Trail of Tears. They are the ones who are forced out of their traditional homes and sent away on a journey of pain and death. Those who had fallen ill, most of the time died, and those who had the will to move on were able to make it to the end and start new lives.
Disease played a major role in the destruction of Indian life. Early settlers brought a plethora of diseases that attacked and easily destroyed the unadapted immune systems of the Native Americans. These diseases killed many Native Americans and had severe impacts on their population. An example can be observed in the article when it describes how the Caddoan population lost around ninety-six percent of its population due to disease. Another example of how disease devastated the natives can be seen in the article when it describes how a single Spanish soldier that suffered from smallpox spread the disease to the Incas which eliminated half of their population.
This statement, like that of Lowe’s, means to suggest that because of the many abuses inflicted upon Native tribes since Europe first began to colonize, the Native people have been forced to endure extreme poverty and life threatening conditions, and in turn drug abuse for many of their people. In order to grasp the destruction drug abuse and addiction have on a community, it is best to look at that community’s youth. According to Riley, “Indian youth have the highest rates of alcoholism use disorders of any racial group in the country. . .” (1).

During the holocaust 6.3 million Jews died because of Greed,Hate,Silent Majority,and Propaganda, leading to genocide. The Holocaust was an event that had a big impact on our history.
Even without war the loss of human lives is catastrophic. On average 1.8 people die every second. So many lives are lost from illness and accidents for example the highest mortality rate among people is caused Cardiovascular diseases. So if we as people have so many reasons as to why we are dying why would we send people to war send them to die for this warped belief of nationalism. They belived that they needed to fight to solve the worlds problems yet do we ever stop to think is there another way.

Reflection Paper on Smoke Signals (directed by Chris Eyre) Smoke Signals is a movie about a young man names Victor and his friend Thomas who travel to Phoenix, Arizona to escape the reservation they live on.

The Vietnam War is very infamous and it has had many consequences on the U.S society and Asian Americans for years to come. One of the main effects from the war is the body count. Over 3 million Vietnamese citizens and 58,000 American troops had died in the bloodshed along with thousands more wounded. The use of Agent Orange not only destroyed Vietnam’s environment, but also caused health problems for the Vietnamese and the American troops using them, eventually leading to cancer. Society wise, the war had changed the way the public saw the U.S government.
The 1930s were the turning point of Native American life. Due to segregation against Native Americans and other non-white ethnic groups, unemployment for native americans was already very high, but as the stock market crashed and as many jobs instantly disappeared, the work opportunities for the Natives Americans were utterly eradicated. Unemployment rates for the Natives rose so high that most were left jobless and stranded in poverty. Reservations, most already in horrible conditions, began to deteriorate to even lower levels. The crisis for the United States was arguably even more devastating on the other ethnic groups.
Many of the diseases that the Europeans brought with them were killing the Native Americans at a staggering rate. Death tolls that were seen were sometimes as high as 80-90 percent, and sometimes entire groups of people would vanish entirely (Ojibwa, 2009). The diseases that were introduced by the Europeans could be classified as group diseases that ranged from smallpox to tuberculosis. These diseases were also prevalent amongst the African population as well, however, the Native Americans were much more devastated by the waves of illness. Native Americans were also much more likely to escape and never return because they knew the territory whereas the Africans had almost no chance of escaping once they arrived in the
