There was a leader of the slaves her name was nunu. She had a son who was considered enemy because his father was white and raped nunu. She was the one that started a group that would go out at night and try to plan a way to get out of the farm. Shola had a person that she loved his name was shango and he was against the slavery system all together. Nunu son was with the system because he was the head of all the slaves and was the one who had to punish the slaves if they got in trouble.
history? What have been the common ancestral backgrounds of each of these groups? When did each become a significant or notable minority group? Some of the largest racial minorities in U.S. history would have to be German, Irish, Italian, and Polish Americans, all of these make up most Americans ethnic backgrounds. The American today is surrounded by remnants of cultures and practitioners of religions whose origins are foreign to this country.
Some of the rights that were taken away from these citizens by the rebels were the right to life and the right to food and shelter for all. The right to life was taken away from thousands people during the civil war in Sierra Leone. The right to life was taken away from citizens by the rebels and towards the end even by the Sierra Leone Army. The right to life was being violated on several different occasions because innocent people who had not done anything wrong were being shot and killed, raped, beaten to death, stabbed, some had their throats slit which actually left some decapitated and the ones that were captured were forced to join their army or they would be brutally treated until their death. One event from the book that shows the right to life right being violated that really stood out to me was when Ishmael was in a throat slitting competition.
This quote shows that black people are treated unfairly in the society. More than that, white people treat black people as some kind of slaves. They do not care that black people will live or die. They only know that they have more power in their hands than black community. Therefore, discrimination against based on skin-color seems to be tearing down many black people’s lives in that period of

The Black Death affected people from all walks of life: Rich or poor; educated or illiterate, all could be touched by the Black Death. Scholars suffered as universities and schools were closed or abandoned . Schools and universities were probably being abandoned because students and professors were dying, and the ones that survived did not want to contract the disease, so they left. The Church experienced the results of the Black Death, too. When the priests died, no one could hear the confessions of those still living.
What if the Africans/African Americans were the slave owners? Would it be wrong? It made some slave holders and their overseers brutal, it made other white people feel guilty and ashamed. Slavery was a moral sickness upon the society. Most slave owners were of white descent and for them to turn their back on their own kind is awfully inhumane, you could tell immediately that these people had no type of conviction or mercy within their own race.
And that made slaves the most valuable thing in the nation beside the land itself. As the price of slaves soared, slave-traders began to roam the north, abducting free black people. By April of 1841, the kidnapping of free black people had become more frequent: Free black men were stolen from their lives and sent into slavery; because the color of one's skin could mark you as a potential slave. Slavery is above all anti-human and an assault against all human and civil rights among enlightened people anywhere and everywhere. This deadly and bestial enslavement of an entire race has had much in common with the rights of Native people, as well as camps of Japanese
The Ku Klux Klan, Knights of White Camellia, and other terrorists murdered thousands of blacks and some whites to prevent them from voting and participating in public life. The KKK was founded in 1865 to 1866. They directed their violence towards black landowners, politicians, and community leaders. They also did this to people who supported Republicans or racial equalities. Many Africans were brave and fought against this treatment.
Race focuses more on skin color and appearance. In contrast ethnicity is based on where we are from and our origins. A person may be considered black if they are of a dark complexion or white if they possess a much lighter tone. This issue becomes more complex because people can be any color in between. There is also the problem that arises for example if a person is of either color but they come from a place such as Puerto Rico or the Dominican Republic.
