In the late nineteenth century really hits on this idea, not only on immigration laws but also the impression of prostitution and Venereal Disease. According to the book, “Race Over Empire: Racism and U.S. Imperialism, 1865-1900,” by Eric T. Love, talks about how race has moved, shaped, and inspired the late-nineteenth-century U.S.

Moreover, this act allowed British soldiers to barge in on the colonists’ home life, forcing them to provide food, utensils, bedding, firewood, and other objects for the soldiers. In addition to this, the Quartering Act showed that the British were disinterested in how Americans lived their lives in their homes and purposefully sabotaged the colonists’ leadership in their homes, showing that the British controlled the colonists’ homes.

The barbarians learned Roman tactics and band together they became a formidable foe that Rome just set up out post and left alone. Their reliance on Germanic people to fight in the army when people didn’t want to fight in the Roman army anymore. The Antonine Plague, and The Plague of Cyprian also took many of Rome troop one in three die with none Roman people fighting they had no loyalty and were able to infiltrate Roman society.

This fear of the destruction of racial purity and white society continued through the 20th century, leading to racial violence against any implication of racial mixing and laws outrightly prohibiting interracial marriage. This fear, compounded with the racialization of the dermies, makes the sexual relationship and role of protector that Paul seeks with Willow directly contradictory to the pure white identity he ventures
