“People become the vessel in which the disease is housed. Whomever comes into contact with this individual will then become infected and then spread this infection to whomever they come into contact with. This is how whole towns and cities were destroyed by the Black Death.” (Wiesner) Inb Khaldun is an Islamic religious man, who believed that the main reason for the Black Death is the corruption of air, through too large of a population in a certain area. It results from the many evil moistures that air has contact with in a dense population. When air is
My first example on how deleting our humane feelings caused harm is Document 7 by James Ramsay called, “Essay on the Treatment and Conversion of African Slaves in the British Sugar Colonies”. The article speaks about the punishments done to slaves for misbehaving in their eyes and committing mistakes. The white men would beat them with sticks, breaking their bones, chain around their necks, etc. All this was done to cause fear within them. All these people thought since Africans are slaves, it’s okay to treat them as beasts.

Social differences have been very important and have directly caused genocide in Sudan. Arabs, supported by the government, have as their mission to “clean up” the country from black Christian society (“Genocide In Sudan” n.pag). This problem is not recent (“Genocide In Sudan” n.pag). Since decades, Arab Sudanese people have had the idea to exterminate all Christians from Sudanese territory (“Genocide In Sudan” n.pag). There had not been the correct excuse until a rebel group attacked Sudan’s capital (“A Death in Sudan” n.pag).
The first step in the assessment involves learning the meaning of illness in relation to the patient’s unique culture, such as what he/she thinks caused the problem. Secondly, the patient should determine the extent to which the patient is embedded in his or her traditional culture. Question 2 Non-verbal communication such as touch and body posture play an important role in the management of interpersonal relationships. It is also used to regulate conversation, and at times to communicate messages that are quite sensitive if communicated verbally. Non-verbal communication can also be used to express emotion, interpersonal attitudes, for self-presentation, and even for ritual-performance such as greetings (Maude, 2011, p. 95).
Do you agree with Achebe’s comment that Conrad is “ a thorough going racist”? Discuss with reference to “ Heart Of Darkness”. Chinua Achebe challenges Joseph Conrad's novella depicting the looting of Africa, “Heart of Darkness” (1902) in his essay "An Image of Africa" (1975). He proclaims that Conrad had written "a bloody racist book" and believes that it has contributed to Western discrimination against Africa and Africans. Achebe argues that Conrad sets up Africa “as a foil to Europe, a place of negation in comparison with which Europe’s own state of spiritual grace will be manifest.” According to Achebe, Africa is being projected as “the other world” which is quite evident in the description of the two rivers, Thames and Congo.
