“According to the theory of Manifest Destiny, the United States was the embodiment of the City of God on Earth and European race were chosen predestined for salvation” (Acuna, 47).The U.S believe it was their faith to spread their principles to the “New World” and the land that was inhabited by Natives did not belong to them since they were a below them. These beliefs are what spark the United States to invade the lands of the Natives and to forcefully teach them “the way of living.” These beliefs are also why white colonists believe Texas belong to them and began the war between Mexico over
If race does not matter, why do we continue to see images of races outside of the White race being discriminated against, stereotype, and destroyed in the media? This research question does not have just one answer it can have many answers. A generalized answer could be that America was made to disvalue races outside of the White race. Especially since the presidential election, we keep hearing “Let’s make America great again.” The true question when was America great after the Europeans took over this native soil. If we look back into our history the Europeans took this land from the Native Americans and pushed them west.

No one reason can be given for any event in history—in colonial times, North America was settled for a multitude of reasons. Although escape from religious persecution or the desire to expand a religion was one reason, economic concerns and the want for wealth comprised the majority of Britain 's intent to settle colonies in North America. Early European exploration of Asia and Africa was driven by trade and economics; because religion was a large part of daily life back then and into the years of American settlement by Europeans, explorers would cite it as their inspiration. The earliest settlements were motivated by an economic depression in England. Later, the first colonies of New England were settled by wealthy Puritans looking to create

Then began the great westward movement. From adventurers to businessmen, our early pioneers came west to seek their fortunes. After a battle with the Indian settlers trying to prevent the
They keep overexploiting our resources to their advantage at the expense of our country. For example, in 1804 there was a royal decree to limit the church’s power and give more power to the Spanish Crown. Our mother country passed this legislation because of all debt it had accumulated in the wars that it was involved; however, why should we pay for our mother countries mistakes? In the process, the Gachupines who hold all the elite positions take advantage of this and overexploit the lower classes. Bear in mind that the Church was the only one that was helping out the lower classes with small investments in order to help the commoners prosper, now there is no one to provide that aid.
The conquest of Mexico and Peru are very similar. Spanish explorers roamed the land, claiming territory for their country. While claiming this land, the conquistadors met up with natives.

O’Sullivan was an American columnist whom was known for his use of the term, “manifest destiny,” which promoted the annexation of Texas to the United States. He argues that the adverse attitude toward Texas’ independence from Mexico needs to end.

John O’Sullivan sees the future of America expanding into California and Mexico becoming a country without a real government.
Imperialism is the policy of extending the rule or authority of an empire or nation over foreign countries or of acquiring and holding colonies and dependencies (Google, 2017). Drastic changes occurred to a variety of nation-states and cultures after imperialistic nations extended their control. This essay will highlight the influence of the Spanish on the Incas’ religion, trade and culture To let the Spaniards in their country and to colonize and take their recourses and the spread of Catholicism meaning, they could not live life, their own way. The Americans believed the Incan leader was half God whereas the Spanish did not, knocking some of shrines down leaving the Incas cleaning up the Spaniards mess. Some of the people who refused to do what the Spaniards commanded they would be shot or beaten, wiping some of the Incan empire although in doing so it increased the population from the new technologies and ideas they had gained from the Spanish (Google, 2015).
