Formally, racial categories appeared to be biological which contrast with the view of the current generation that impact the social status of the society. The ethical race connections that exist among people appear to be mutually exclusive. However, the situation may be overlapping without notice. This brings in the idea of invisibility of race within the community. People tend to assume the existence of race as an inferior fact yet it exists as a major problem within the community.
They even practiced their religion and cultural beliefs toward Africans. Then Europeans soon began to industrialize soon after. And what the Europeans wanted and needed for their industry was raw materials. And since Africa had the resources they needed, they ended up taking control. Though they struggled to involve the proliferation of conflicting European claims to African territory during the imperialism period.
Ethnocentrism is the way an individual look at the world from his/her own beliefs in their culture. They feel that their culture, race, or ethnic group is more significant and that their culture is more superior than any other culture of other groups. In feeling this way the individuals will judge other groups, such as their behavior, the language in which they use, religion. How it could be detrimental to society is that it could lead to false speculation about the differences in cultures. It leads to society making premature judgments about other cultures, not knowing all the facts about another culture.
Racism devalues specific members of the community. It promotes the idea that some people are better or more entitled to our nation's liberties by simple virtue of having a "preferred" ethnicity or race. If it is accepted that one race is superior, it must then be accepted that another race is inferior. As a result of these ideas, people are subjected to ridicule, harassment, racial propagation, vilification and even physical abuse. These attitudes are exclusive and exploitive.
These inventions (refer to Document C for examples) caused great economic expansion across Europe. Yet at the same time, these exact inventions caused for a need of more raw materials. This is where Imperialism began to take shape, because before Imperialism in Africa had begun, there were still many examples of Europeans who’d enslaved africans on their own land. Which meant that once raw materials for machines that needed simple labor in a factory rather than the fields were needed to maintain their great economic boost; whichever European country had the most property in Africa, got to conquer the most land in its entirety (Scramble for Africa). Meaning these now obsolete slaves were being subject to have to watch European countries take over their lands and began industrializing on african soil because of how rich in materials the African land is.
After Europe set up colonies all across the continent, there were many resources found. The slave trade was established in Africa while it was under the imperialism from Europe. Other important resources that were found in Africa were diamonds, especially in South Africa, and gold. Another key reason why Africa was under imperialism was because Europeans, not just the British, wanted to spread Christianity and religion wherever they conquered, and since Africa seemed uninfluenced by any form of religion, it seemed the perfect place to impose Christianity. Africa’s ports were also a major stopping point for most of the world, and Europe had ideas of spreading Christianity to the world and it would start one port at a time.
Even those who view the inherent inequalities of the American system, however, and argue that minorities are in some need of institutionalized help to overcome systemic problems also see the policies Affirmative Action as more of a hindrance than a help. This essay will argue that while certainly biases and inequalities exist in American society, and that members of minority populations are in need of some type of assistance in education and job placement
In the mid-1800s, Europeans began expanding their power and influence over vast areas of Africa. It marked the beginning of the Age of Imperialism. During this time, many European nations raced in their objective to seize control of as many African nations as they could. Africa was very culturally diverse; people were divided into hundreds of ethnic and linguistic groups. The lack of unity in Africa served as a strong advantage, allowing Europeans to govern the land with only minor upheavals from these groups.
The point can be further validated because there are present examples of totalitarian behavior although the extremes are not present currently but as history continually repeats itself and governments slowly gain more power each day; the reader can make a connect to the potential problem that can arise. Orwell also gives a direct example of how the party will use total control of its citizens because of this is given mass power and importance but in a very negative way that supports the problem. Finally the author uses the “shock value” to persuade the reader that there is a problem by using extreme example to show the lack
Many foreign powers wished to take Ethiopia for themselves due to its economic nature and its long standing history. This was mostly due to the factor that "European powers engaged in the Scramble for the partition of Africa". Ethiopia was a state like no other within Africa that was able to maintain themselves this was due to the fact that they had a feudal system that was considered to be similar to that of Russia. Furthermore Ethiopia had significantly moved themselves into a powerful position with the European powers making it difficult for numerous situations to occur. Menelik II had successfully managed to manipulate European powers against each other as well as gaining numerous arms and modern weapons against one another.
