According to the article, Native American mascots bring more negativity than the luck they are supposed to bring, “…(1) they [mascots] reflect and reinforce stereotypes, (2) they harm Native Americans, and (3) Native Americans do not have control over them,” (IMHTNA). Native Americans are already stereotyped against by having “red skin and feathers in their hair.” Seeing this exact image portrayed by many school mascots reinforces these stereotypes and keeps people thinking close-mindedly. However, it’s not just recently begun to be a problem; Native Americans were treated harshly back in the 1800s as well. The United States government was cruel to Native Americans in more ways than one, “The soldiers attack your villages and kill your women, children, and old people,” (Lakota). In many cases, the United States government had agreed and signed a treaty with the Native Americans, but then had broken the treaty soon after.
By 1914 over a third of British exports went to the empire. Empire also untied people with a sense of patriotism and national identity, people saw themselves as members of the greatest nation on Earth. Despite all of this, even before 1914 the empire was beginning to show signs of strain, the Boer War was one of the first significant impacts in Britain's (and the rest of the world’s) view on imperialism and Britain. The Boer War (1899-1902) was fought directly against the Transvaal and the Orange Free State, in which the Boers were defeated first in open warfare and then in a long and bitter guerrilla campaign. During the war controversial methods like concentration camps and scorched earth policy were used to win the war.
Industrialization After the Civil War Thesis Professor Peralta History 105 10/25/14 Industrialization after the Civil War had a profound effect in the U.S. that is still felt to this day. While there were many positives that came out of it, like the U.S. becoming the largest and wealthiest nation in the world, there were many negative aspects to society, economy and politics that harmed more people than it helped. Many different groups of people would not have their voices heard during this time and would be swept away out of sight for some time, all in the name of progress. Three major aspects that influenced the U.S were the rise of monopolies and industry giants, the expansion into the west and the building of railroads, and finally the rise of factories and the working conditions of those employed there. Five groups that were affected by industrialization were Native Americans, immigrants to the U.S., women, children and farmers.
Colonialism consists in such things as resource exploitation of Indigenous lands, residential school syndrome, racism, expropriation of lands, extinguishment of rights, and welfare dependency. What makes colonialism real in the lives of First Nations people is when these impositions become causes of harm to them as people and as communities. When oppression is experienced over centuries like this, it negatively affects people’s minds, bodies, and souls. As Eduardo Duran
Furthermore these immigrants are taking whatever jobs they can find, and because of this they are doing some of the most undesired jobs in the nation. Some people would argue that the illegal immigrants are taking money from our economy, but this notion is also quickly put to rest, as these workers are putting there money right back into the economy as they buy cell phones, or parts for their cars, or any number of other goods. Because they purchase goods they help other businesses prosper and more jobs are created. Hence the non-legal immigrants are not a hindrance to our society but rather they help it. These people are close to the bottom of our society and yet they provide a crucial role.
Prior to the Titanic’s demise in 1912, American society was making steady progress in the development of technology. The country was expanding in wealth and population, with many foreigners immigrating to the states in hope of finding wealth in the nation’s blooming industrial centers. The industrialization of the country made Americans become arrogant and imperious; the designers of the RMS Titanic stated, “God himself could not sink this ship.” This egotistic attitude likely led to the Titanic devastation. Because the Titanic was thought to be the “unsinkable ship,” when the tragedy was announced to the American public, many citizens did not believe that it was true.

In addition, having additional skills and receiving bonuses is good motivation for other workers. Most people in the United States do not speak or write a second language.

Americans companies are looking for workers with bilingual skills because of growing immigrant population in the United States and because they are doing more business in foreign countries.
