Gary Nash discusses the impact of black people in a white peoples colony. The first negro people to come to America in Virginia were probably indentured servants who would receive some type of reward after their time of service was over, until 1660. After 1660 though many of the “Negros” that came to America were slaves, purchased as property. By the 1800’s every colony in America had “slave codes” which stripped black people of every right they had and made them property. His biggest claim was his stating of, “More than anything else it was sugar that transformed the African slave trade.” The slave trade became an extremely profitable enterprise for European nations once the sugar plantations reached the New World.
African Imperialism During the late 19th and 20th century, the Europeans such as the Britain’s were trying to take over more land from the Africans to expand their borders. In doing so they also grew its economy and cultures. Since Africa wasn’t modernized or politically secure at the time it was much easier for Europe to take over their land. This made it possible for the Europeans to be able to produce crops. Then soon enough different nations from Europe started to take over most of Africa.
It is true the three G’s of attraction to Europe was Gold, Glory, and God and remains to still be a strong force behind the world today. Gold can be classified as wealth that explorers sought in order to strengthen their kingdom or empire. This was done in hopes of overpowering other nations and gaining ultimate trade powers. Glory stemmed in the form of jealousy over others accomplishments and prompted rulers to gain popularity by any means necessary after all fame and fortune motivates many. The third G is God and Christianity is a major governing belief of the European nation.
The arrival of Euorpean traders in the 1500's made the Chinese government nervous and as a result, isolated the people for fear of cultural changes. However, because of the high demand for goods, trade continued to take place illegally. When the dynasty collapsed and the Manchus took over, trade was controlled overseas. In the Qing Dynasty, trade made for a huge population growth in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. Trade with America caused this growth through their introduction of new crops to China.

Colonists were confessing their guilt and sin and then wallowing in the thought of being “saved.” The Great Awakening increased religious diversity and the separation of church and state. Colonists started to believe that if they could make their own religious decisions, they could also make their own political decisions thus adding to democracy in the Americas. Immigrants came to the Americas for gold, God and glory without the realization they were adding to democracy in the colonies. Many immigrants settled in the middle colonies because farms were bigger and trade was better. Immigration also added to the development of slavery, Africans being captured and brought to the Americas by Europeans as either slaves or free labor servants would add to the American colonies fight for a more democratic society.
It proved to be very beneficial to Europe and was practiced for quite some time. Along with the development of mercantilism, migrations increased because of the population boom due to the corn and potatoes. A new social class was developed called the Bourgeoisie. But to work the land and farm it the Europeans needed slaves of which were abducted and bought from Africa after most of the Native Americans that had already been occupying the land were dying off from the foreign
When Great Britain governed early America they taxed the, not just because they were in debt, they wanted to make money. They also imported tobacco from America. When America went overseas to expand to Hawaii they didn’t just annex Hawaii they added all the sugar plantations on Hawaii. Also sort of like Great Britain we made money off of Hawaii’s sugar. I think that if your going to be imperialistic you have to justify your self in overseas expansion and economic boosts.
Britain, France and Netherlands all started the slave trade for one main reason, profits. “Slavery was not born of racism; rather, racism was the consequence of slavery.” 1 When the Europeans migrated to America, they needed a huge task force to help them cultivate crops such as tobacco, sugar, and coffee. The Europeans first tried Native Americans. They initially started trading and eventually
From 1492C.E. to 1750C.E, the Columbian Exchange had similar interactive and economic effects in the Americas as it did in Europe like new agricultural goods and growth of economic products, but differed in the effects of the Columbian exchange, in terms of the epidemic spread in the Americas. New World crops were spread rapidly by Western European merchants. Corn and potatoes were a big factor in Europe; it marked the introduction of American crops into Europe. Besides those two products, several other foods from the Americas were transported to Europe as well, such as: peppers, maize, tomatoes, beans, and the squash.
