American Indians, African American and Asian Americans are some of the larger racial minorities in U.S. history. It is listed that African Americans average population is 12.9%.

He was beheaded. However 75 years on Van der Lubbe was pardoned and his conviction overturned. Many historians believe that the Nazis were responsible for the setting of the fire in order to discredit the left wing and exploit the fears many Germans had of communism. It also served to increase the popularity of the Nazi Party. The day after the destruction of the Reichstag by fire Hitler persuaded President Hindenburg to approve the decree For The Protection Of The People And The State 28th February 1933.

Laws regulating work and production were limited. Additionally, most manufactured goods were imported, subsequently limiting the quantity and selection of available goods. In response to this industrial growth and prosperity, drastic changes in the lives of Americans took place. The population increases in cities across America were astonishing and contributed to a decline in rural population. By 1890, several cities touted populations over 1 million people and by 1900, New York City was the second largest city in the world, outranked only by London.
This is untrue. Hitler never had the popular votes to become Chancellor of Germany, and the only reason he got the job was because the German leaders entered into a series of back-room deals. Some claim that Hitler's rise was nonetheless legal under the German system. The problem is that what was "legal" under the German system would not be considered legal under a truer and better-working democracy. In a democracy along the lines of the United States or Great Britain, Hitler could have never risen to power.
Compare the beginning and the end of a film you have studied, commenting on contrast and links developed between them. The beginning of V for Vendetta, directed by James McTeigue, starts off with a scene of Guy Fawkes attempting to blow up the buildings of parliament and failing. That scene ends with him being publicly executed by hanging. The final scene of the film was the fire works coming off the destruction of the buildings of parliament. There is many connections from the beginning scene to the final scene in the film, the director does this to emphasise how history repeats itself and how an idea, unlike a man, is ‘bulletproof’ and can live forever.
This was not surprising, as there was no previous history of a democracy in Germany before the Frankfurt Parliament, therefore there was not much support from the ordinary people for the new concept. Without military power, the new Parliament had none of the two principal needs for enforcement of ideas. They didn’t have the power of “fear” – something crucial which was needed to get in the hearts and minds of opposers to the acts the Parliament issued. Secondly, they had no respect – without which, people wouldn’t look to the Parliament and acknowledge any requests. The lack of respect (due to a lack of military power) meant
The number of Americans actually converted during the Awakening is hard to ascertain. Early estimates ranged from several thousand to half a million, although the latter figure is quite high given a total colonial population around one million in 1740. In New England, where again records are best, the years of revival witnessed a marked increase in the number of people joining the church (often the only reliable guide to measure conversions). The Connecticut churches, for example, admitted on the average about eight people each per year in 1739 and 1740, but then about thirty-three per year in 1741 and 1742. Similar gains took place in Massachusetts.
