Slave codes were soon approved – in Massachusetts in 1641 and Virginia in 1661 –and any minor liberties that might have existed for African American were taken away (Feature Indentured Servants In The U.S , n.p.). The early colonizers soon understood that they had lots of land to settle, but no one to actually do the work. This necessity for cheap labor created indentured servitude.

Government b. Business c. Culture Who Were and Is the Navajo Indians The Navajo Indian culture is one of great pride filled with sacred traditions, beliefs and ceremonies that have been handed down from generation to generation. Their cultural background and beliefs have been infused throughout their people and they take pride in making sure that their story and experiences are known throughout all of their cultural members, young and old. The background of the Navajo people, including their primary mode of subsistence, their beliefs and values (consisting of the use of medicines and ceremonies for rituals), gender relations as well as economic and social organizations can teach us a great deal. The Navajo Nation is the largest Indian reservation in the United States, comprising about 16 million acres or about 25, 000 miles, approximately the size of the state of West Virginia.
In that respect they were better off after the war than before it and they have more rights. However in the north there was evidence of private discrimination and prejudice. This is the down side of a black person going to the north. The reason of a black person going to the north is to escape the racism, but they could be going straight to it and they would not know until they have experienced it. All over the south racism was still going on.
Their tribe today is called the Northwest Coast Indian Tribe. The Navajo Indians who settled in southern Arizona and New Mexico then became the different Apache tribes. When they reached the Southwest, they began to learn a lot of things from the Pueblo Indians. They learned weaving, how to make clothing, and art.

In the early 17th century, European settlers in North America turned to African slaves as a cheaper, more plentiful labour source than indentured servants and were treated inhumanly. African Americans had been fighting against racial discrimination for centuries; during the 1950s, however, the struggle against racism and segregation entered the mainstream of American life. A growing group of Americans spoke
While Inventions, such as the cotton gin, enhanced the necessity for slaves in the south, slavery was disappearing from the rest of the world. This is why slavery was called the ‘Peculiar Institution’. Americans that did not live in the south or see the true colors of slavery believed that paternalism existed in there, which delayed violence and revolting needed to start the revolution. It was due to the influence of the Haitian Revolution that allowed Americans and slaves to use more violent tactics to get their point across. Violence played a huge role in the outcome of the Civil War.
These laws also created environments for African Americans that had a tendency to be inferior to those provided for white Americans. But like slavery, it was only a matter of time before segregation would become a focus within the United States. The desegregation movement brought an abundance of positive outcomes, which were intended to benefit the African American community. Although desegregation was for the overall benefit of the country, it was largely implemented in a way that was demoralizing to the African American community. In his book, Acting White: The Ironic Legacy of Desegregation, Stuart Buck states “that the “acting white” phenomenon was an ironic legacy of desegregation” (637), and that the well-intention policies that were implemented eventually led to a reversal of intention thus having an inadvertent damaging effect on African American students.

America was the dream land for the new comers and the land of slavery and bad memories that haunted the African Americans, however in some occasions the dream land was a nightmare for the immigrants, and the land of slavery was the land where African Americans were ready to pay their lives to protect their freedom. Immigrants who came to America in last decades of the 18th century and early 19th century didn't differ much from their predecessors. Escaping racial, religious, and political persecution, or seeking relief from a lack of economic opportunity or famine were the main reasons that pushed many immigrants out of their homelands. They imagined the United States as a land of freedom, where all persons enjoys equality before the law, could worship as they pleased , enjoyed economic opportunity.
