The actions of the European imperialists did more wrong than it could ever do right. Imperialism will greatly encourage the African Slave Trade and make it worse than it already was at the time. Leaders of other colonies will capture their neighboring colonies just so that they may sell them for money (Vern, 2013). The slave trade will integrate many African races and it will soon lose many of their heritage. Trust is lost in
According to document five, colonization was positive for Europe because they attained many more resources. This allowed many more industries to grow and flourish including the textile industry because of an increase in cotton coming into Europe. Also, in document four, another positive economic change is shown, with an increase in new technology and other advances. New technological advances allowed the economy to grow. They allowed Europeans to successfully invade and conquer Africa, allowing them to attain new resources and grow rich. Lastly, a both a negative and positive effect is explained in document six. This is positive for the Europeans because it allowed them to grow rich on the backs of slaves and the free labor they provided. However, this is negative for Africans, as they were forced into slavery, or were paid very little, which did not help their economy. Overall, the economic changes were great, but affected the Europeans much more positively than the the African
In conclusion, European imperialism had a both positive and negative effect on Africa and Asia, while the majority of people fail to comprehend the positive facet of the topic. Europe introduced education, religion, trade, and government to the people, but the way in which they forced these things upon the native people is where they went wrong.

Interwoven through history are the have and have nots. Those who come from privilege tend not to recognize those privileges, while those who fall into the marginalized groups have an uphill battle. White privilege is a set of institutional beliefs granted to those based on their skin color. These individuals have better access to privilege and resources. Much of these privileges are seen through types of employment, amount of compensation, quality of schools, and racial profiling. Among these few privileges one can see daily how the people of color are affect with basic needs as well.

As in the Spanish Colonial period, the Spanish classified the mestizos, Spanish mixed with indigenous, as different. Since the start of the new era, humans classified whiter skin to a high social status and darker skin as slaves or lower social status. While moving at the age of nine to the United States I was profiled based on my appearance, race, the difference in culture, language and social differences. While growing up, I had to learn that not everyone was willing to accept foreigners and respect people who are different. Because of the stereotypes that people believed in Mexicans: as being illegal immigrants, unable to speak the English language, or being a gang member. Currently, I have experienced many of

For Americans moving west in the 1820 's and 30 's there was a little actual knowledge of what the frontier would be like when they arrived. There was a lot of presumption about the Indians. Many felt, through the stories they heard, that they had sufficient information to know what the Indians would truly be like and how to respond to them. Unfortunately, as is described in books and articles, white settlers stereotyped the Native Americans as savage, heartless beasts.
From the first mention of Native Americans in American history, they are characterized as “savages” and “less intelligent” human beings. This characterization has remained predominate throughout American history, however in colonial times, this characterization had a larger emphasis in how Americans view Indians. Although this the way in which Americans viewed Native Americans, Native Americans, on the other hand, viewed Americans as “white [racially superior]” (Svingen). In today’s modern day and age, we understand the complexity when it comes to stereotyping certain ethnic groups. In regards to Native Americans in a post-World War II setting, labeling and stereotyping such ethnic group emphasizes the importance to integrate individuals of
Native Americans are often identified as people who wear headdresses, have long hair, high cheekbones, red skin, ride horses, and kill buffalo. Most people don’t really care about how this affects Natives because they either don’t personally know any or they’re just insensitive towards these people.

White America has put most other races into a box that consists of stereotypes and hurtful assumptions of those people. Being that the United States
