They joined forces with the Spanish in the war against the French to gain their freedom, and when they did, they fought the Spanish and forced them of the entire island of Hispaniola. This continued fighting caused enough damage to the economy of the colonies by causing major halts to crop production in Saint Domingue that the National Convention immediately pushed to vote for the abolition of slavery in French colonies in fear of the other colonies rising up, leading to slavery being abolished in 1794. France was in no position economically or politically to continue to take the risk to the economic status of France that the slave trade posed. Due to France
Adversity breaks one down until they can be broken no more, and although adversity has a negative connotation, overcoming adversity can make one stronger, turning it into a positive. When America was discovered and colonized, the indigenous peoples faced real hardships. Americans disliked anything that wasn’t European culture so they tried to eliminate tribal identities and assimilate the Native Americans into their culture. They outlawed certain Indian rituals such as the Ghost Dance and forced Indian children to speak English instead of their native languages. The constitution did not outline specific details for relations with Natives, so as America grew older, the government was left to deal with the Indians however they pleased.
Before the word integration came into existence, what existed was assimilation. Assimilation is an unreasonable course of action, in which immigrants and their offspring give up their culture and become accustomed wholly to the society they have migrated in to. The policy of assimilation occurred in the United States where by, the foremost cultural group called WASPs (White Anglo-Saxon Protestants) forcefully made others immigrants to adopt the language, culture, and social structure of the American people, restricting them from using their own cultural artifacts. Another example was in the French policy of assimilation in her colonies in West Africa like Senegal during the late sixteenth century. The French colonial masters made them to work and think like French men.

The BWI sugar industry initially saw little competition but France through their economic cheat code of St. Domingue soon over took control of the sugar market of the Americas. This had a considerable impact on the decision to implement the abolition of the slave trade ad the British looked to an early end to the trade and the forced implementation of waged labour would have destroyed the French and Spanish sugar industries. This resulted in great loss not only from the initial loss of the replenishable supply of labour but
Imperialism is when a country forcefully takes over another country and now has control. Monarchy and dictatorship are some of the governments that practiced imperialism because they had one ruler that had all the power, so the ruler could do what he wanted because he had nobody to tell him what to do. People would practice imperialism because imperialism is a way to discover new land and people, but it is also a way for dictators and kings to take over and gain more land for themselves. Imperialism caused slavery to increase because when the different countries came to conquer, they enslaved africans to work for them.

While race undoubtedly played major, pivotal roles in Europe during the turn of the 17th century, it’s large impact on the culture and economy of Europe can be disregarded when one takes into account that the aforementioned impacts just led to injustice and slavery.

While this explanation relies heavily on simple stories, the attempt to describe why some are different through religion is a way to have people widely conform to modern conceptions of

Throughout the 18th and 19th centuries, the religious, economic, and political methods by which European colonial powers ruled over their colonies evolved as a result of developments in the world that changed European motivations. As European powers became more wealthy, powerful, and influential in Southeast Asia, indigenous people were increasingly mistreated became and discontented with European rule. Though many faced the brutal aspects colonialism before Europe began consolidating political rule over Southeast Asia, the new policies that were instituted during the 18th and 19th centuries significantly worsened the quality of life of the average person living in Southeast Asia. Redistribution of land away from peasants, a lack of access to education, high taxation, a racial hierarchy motivated by the doctrines of social Darwinism, and the revocation of political power made the experience of living in a colony as a non-European very poor. To remedy this, many colonies started seeking their independence in the late 19th century.
