Some say Christopher Columbus was a hero because he was the explorer that discovered America. In reality, Christopher Columbus had an incredibly negative impact on the world because he enslaved the Native Americans, didn’t help the kind Natives when they got infected by diseases that the Spaniards had brought to America, and killed off most of the Native American population. The tactics he chose to use were violent and destructive by the standards back then and now. First, Columbus treated the Native Americans like uncivilized people by enslaving them and forcing them to work for him although they greeted him and his crew peacefully. ”They could make fine servants,”(document 2) he wrote in his journal,”I took them by force.”(document 3)
In admission to his failure to stop slavery in 1814, Jefferson wrote that he always hoped for younger generations who were born and bred in the American soil would somehow create an end the acts of slavery as they all share common dreams of equal America. However, he was concerned and sympathized with the level of opposition and made liberty for all Americans to a mirage. Years after Missouri retreat in 1824, Jefferson still held on to the belief that federally financed postinati abolition scheme was one of the best ways through which slavery would have been stopped. This in his view was a comprehensive and the best plan compared to Thomas Jefferson Randolph plan coined the Virginia Slavery Debate of 1832
The Antislavery movement was the most significant contribution to history as this event would enable to overshadow almost all other effort at social reform. The movement William Lloyd Garrison was important figure to the antislavery movement. In the 1820s Garrison was an assistant to Benjamin Lundy who published antislavery newspaper of the time. However, Garrison broke away from Lundy in 1838 and founded his own newspaper called the “Liberator.” Garrison spoke to the opponents of slavery that they should not talk about the evil influence but rather than the damage the system did to slaves. Garrison influence attracted a large enough group of followers that he soon was able to found the New England Antislavery Society in 1832.
Racism is still alive whether you go down south or up the street. As an African American I can see the way a person looks at you are thinking that you are lower than them just because of an increased amount of pigment in your skin. Even blacks take it too far like the black lives matter and all the police problems. All lives matter from white to black because we are God’s children and a created equal in His eyes and he sent his son Jesus to die on the cross for everyone it is our choice to accept the gift not our skin color. Yes, some police officers are not going to like black people it does not mean all police officers hate blacks.
It also gives us an understanding of why he is also very loyal to his good friend Tom. Tom never really had the safest or best ideas, but Huck trusted him and was loyal because that is a value he has. A counterclaim that can be made against Huck is that he also showed some bad values by not turning Jim in. At the time, there was of course slavery going on and to help a wanted slave was considered wrong and dishonest in the eyes of many people. Some may say that Huck was a dishonest person because of his choice to not turn Jim in.
Yes, i support Garrison in every way because slavery was wrong and people weren’t being treated right. Everyone is equal, and should be treated fairly. Garrison spoke about that in his speeches he wanted slaves to be treated fairly, and believed that they should be freed. He would not give up on fighting to abolish slavery, because of that Garrison was known as a prominent abolitionist. I feel like if Garrison wasn’t located in the free states he would be more of a target , because he was very passionate about anti-slavery and the slave states wouldn’t be happy , but at the same time it’s a good thing because he could have more voices of people wanting to abolish slavery or slaves wanting to be freed.
John Brown DBQ Response John Brown and other famous abolitionist took part in what is now known as the raid on Harper’s Ferry. Which started as way to inspire slaves to revolt, but ended up with the death of John Brown and a few others. Some people think of John Brown as a crazy murderer. Although others, such as myself, think of him as a “misguided fanatic.” In other words, according to dictionary.com, misguided means misled or mistaken and fanatic means a person with an extreme and uncritical enthusiasm. John Brown was a “misguided fanatic” because he stood up for what he thought was right even if nobody else did.
The quotes showed nothing but the fact that father Benito was just one of many who were taught and made them to believe on what the Spaniards wanted them to know. What I liked was that Hummingbird opened up father Benito’s mindset on stuff he refused to believe in the first place. Overall the lesson father Benito learned was my favorite because Huitzitzilin cleared up the lies the Spaniards had upon the true history that happened to the Mexica’s. It affected me in a way that made me rethink the fact that maybe the country I live in might also be teaching students lies or that they are not teaching every detail of history. Therefore, it serves my life by making me wonder that everything I know might just be a lie this whole time.
Racism and Slavery are a hand in hand subject, without Slavery, Racism wouldn 't have been a broad topic. Although modern day slavery is nowhere to be found in America, Racism is still an existing matter. Racism against African Americans was a byproduct of permanent and inhumane enslavement of the black population. Although slavery was not only among Afro- Americans, it was also towards white slaves, and indentured servants who all received the same treatment, were punished equally and worked the same hours. The need to solve economic and social problems drove the Colonists to strip Afro-Americans down from their basic rights and such, which rose to naming all blacks, slaves.
He did not understand the difference between him and Jim. Jim was a slave and also a good friend of Huck. Jim formulates a plan of escape and to help with the escape was Huck. Huck and Jim also had many similarities in their situation. They even respected each other’s differences.
