Several documents were printed to improve the number of casualties during the transportation of the Africans. One of these contributions was James Barbot Jr. who wrote the “General Observations on the Management of Slaves.” Resistant among the captives did occurred aboard ships as Barbot described one of his personal account of the revolt aboard Don Carlos. He argued that mistreatment of the African captives was the main reason they became desperate to escape the imprisonment. Although his suggestions appeared more humane in treating the African captives with proper care and nourishment, it was to keep the number of their prized captives alive during the transportation. In order to monitor and manage the captives aboard ships, they seek to educate slave traders how to treat the Africans to maximize profits.
The Trans-Atlantic slave trade was responsible for the forced migration of between 12 to 15 million people. From Africa to the Western Hemisphere, the slave trade not only displaced millions of Africans to a life of exploitation, but also a painful death. Nobody knew the total number of people who died during slavery in Africa. The Atlantic slave trade Many died a slowly painful death during transportation and imprisonment, or in horrendous conditions during the Middle Passage. The voyage from Africa to the Americas was horrifying and painful for the slaves so many slaves considered suicide as an option.
African Americans are more likely to be incarcerated than any other race, even if the same crime is committed. This high rate of incarceration changes the sexual behaviors and makes African Americans engage in relations that increase the risk for HIV. Constantly being imprisoned traps blacks in communities with high prevalence of HIV, by reducing employment and increasing poverty. It also facilitates concurrent relationships among both men and women, and makes males more susceptible to sexual behaviors in prison, where the HIV risk is greatest, due to the fact the MSM blacks are the group with the most HIV diagnosis in history. The incarceration is one of many driving principles behind the HIV/AIDS conspiracy, which the government has made no actions to disprove.
The definition of imperialism is an action by a strong nation to take control of another country. According to CDC Malaria is a “mosquito-borne disease caused by a parasite”. Between the late 1500’s and the early 1800’s Europeans didn’t enter Africa, because of the disease malaria.This ended during the 1800’s European countries such as France, Great Britain, Germany, Italy, Portuguese, Belgium, and spain imperialised Africa. “What was the driving force behind the imperialism in africa?” This question is still being asked and there are many opinions about this specific question, but there is one answer. The driving force behind European imperialism in Africa is resources.
With the use of IV he is at a very high risk for contracting HIV which he did. I am unaware as to whether he is in a relationship, which is a high risk, and whether or not he performs safe sex? But, I will assume this is where Lloyd contracted his HIV. But, he could have also been infected by the sharing of the same needle and contracted his HIV by the other person who already has been infected. 3.
In the reading by Peter Redman, he raises the argument that the ‘AIDS carrier” becomes the central representation of the HIV epidemic and how the representations of HIV cannot be narrowed down to one cause. In addition, the ‘AIDS carrier’ is represented as monster and the carrier spreads HIV from the deviant subpopulations to the mainstream. Also, AIDS has been connected to social and moral issues and singles out groups like gay men, black people, and young single women. These groups are then viewed as diseased subpopulations and that causes others to feel disgust and panic. The heterosexual men are then afraid to have physical or emotional contact with men in general and that’s why boundaries of heterosexual masculinity were produced.
Lastly Europeans were affected by the Bubonic Plague in a social way too for example prejudice, segregation, population, and their daily life. When the plague first broke out in Europe Christians and other people thought the Jews went out and poisoned their water to try to kill them (Macdonald 15). From this thought it caused the Christians to go out and kill and burn thousands of Jews for thinking that they tried to poison them because Christians were “better” than Jews (Woodville). Later on people found out that the plague was not because of the Jews, it was because people were not properly sanitary and their houses and areas they worked in were infested with dirty rats and animals carrying diseases. When Jews were being blamed for supposedly bringing the plague they then moved east to Poland and Russia (Whipps).

One major effect of European imperialism on Africa was the sudden, dramatic amount of poverty. During the "Scramble for Africa", Europeans drained all resources and money out of Africa, leaving indigenous peoples with nothing. There was also an increase in disease and fighting amongst tribes in Africa, due to Europeans drawing borders that separated some friendly tribes and forced others to live together with their mortal enemies. After WWII, when Europeans abandoned their African colonies, many were able to claim independence. However, since the indigenous people had not been allowed in positions of power while existing in a colony, they had no leadership skills to govern themselves, and many nations fell apart under corrupt rulers.
Correspondingly this lead the Africans to get diseases along the way causing many to die. In addition the crew members of the ships would often throw the Africans off the ship due to water shortages. The age of exploration came along way from 15th to the 17yh century bringing along voyages, conquests, new lands, disease, religion, and the exchange of goods. Many ideas and methods of expansion were flowed along over time. Cartographers developed new ways of mapping.
