The ideology that Arabs are a supreme race and their needs and desires come before everyone else, is a driving force behind the Arabs hatred toward the native Darfurians. The Sudan is controlled by Arab leaders. Authoritarianism, nationalism and disenfranchisement of black Africans have all played a part in leading to genocide. The war in Darfur is made up of many different people groups. The victims of the mass murders are comprised of various black African tribes.
The British Imperialism hurt Indian and its people because the British using India’s resources and living off the profits that were gained from there. Based on document 2, “All they [the British] do is live off India while they are here. When they go, they carry all they have gained.” During the British occupation in India, they made use of all the resources available there and sell those resources in Europe for a huge profit. They basically monopolize India’s resources. The British made it seem that they were actually trying to help India out.
Compare and contrast the effects of World War 1 on Africa and Middle East. Although the causes for the Great War were laid down years before, but the immediate spark was the Assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand, an Austrian hungry prince. Due to the alliances amongst the countries, the Great war which had initially started between Serbia and Austria had engulfed the whole world into the War. The main causes of the Great War were imperialism, race for arms, nationalism and the alliance system. Typically, when one thinks of Great War, they think of extensive fighting in Europe but in reality the Great War had numerous battles in the colonized states where there were clashes between Triple Alliance and the Allies.
Genocide is defined as the massive killing of a civilization by another civilization for different reasons which can include ethnical, religious or political differences (“What Is Genocide” n.pag). In my opinion, genocide is the systematical murder of people from a civilization who are inferior to their enemy. Sudan’s black Christians are economically inferior to Arab militias which have killed hundreds of thousands of these people. Sudan’s genocide has been caused by an immense number of circumstances. Social differences have been very important and have directly caused genocide in Sudan.

Imperialism Over Asia and Its Impact Shirley Hughes HIS: 351 Asia in Age of Decolonization & Globalization Professor, Holly Heatley November 7, 2011 Imperialism Over Asia and its Impact The advances in technology, agriculture, transportation, communication and more importantly military weapons gave Europeans the power to impose on other countries either by force or the threat of force. China suffered from unbalanced treaties after rebellions failed due to the Unification of European forces along with Japanese forces. China was forced into signing, while India suffered through the methods of divide and conquer, pitting the indigenous Hindu’s and Muslims against one another leaving the door open for British control. Japan with its military might and its aid in fighting with the allies during WWI was viewed as a great power. Japan’s industrialized economy needed resources, which Japan believed they could obtain through the same methods of imperialism.
Slavery; Relations between the Black and White Man When looking upon American history in its entirety, there is a dark stain that spreads for a good chunk of the whole, starting almost from the beginning. Slavery, a word that doesn’t give enough justice to its name, a word that puts a bad taste in your mouth even though the people of today have never lived through its cruelty. Slavery may have started out as the selling of white European servants who came to America seeking a better life, but this is not the slavery that I speak off. The slavery that I speak off is the more vicious aspect of the word that grew out of that beginning. This slavery is by far one of the more difficult subjects to look upon when discussing American history and its influences.

People thought that it was a punishment from God. In the end about ½ of the population died and making it one of the worst bubonic plagues ever in human history. It took the country over 100 years to recover from this disaster. The next event was the peasant’s revolt.
