Banneker claims how these are the rights that all people are born with and can’t be taken away from us. The use of these sources helps prove to Jefferson that slavery is bad and should be
While for Columbus monuments it is taken by most Americans, and Europeans as a commemorative thing in which it celebrates the actions, and deeds that Columbus had done in discovering America, and how it led to the founding and present time of the United States, but for other such as Native Americans it has been received as oppression, and the close annihilation of their people in which they were enslaved, killed, and imprisoned by Columbus and his people, shown in Document J.

On the opposing side, people view it as a symbol of respect to the soldiers who lost their lives for what they believed in. The debates have emerged and then dissipated in the past, but the controversies have risen again.

It also allowed me to get close enough to hear the interactions of this group of students without sticking out from the crowd.
Dusty Camp is definitely one of a kind. My time there was filled with interesting and informative events that were geared to our future success. I was offered a first hand look at what it takes to succeed in a University from a TAMIU professor. I still remember the five points for success that he articulated, and I took them to heart. Since beginning at TAMIU, I have followed his steps to the letter, buying my books, reading everyday before class, staying away from Rebecca, finding a real study group, and personally interacting with my professors.
