Based on the readings in this unit, what do the readings in this unit reveal about diversity within the new nation? Use at least three specific examples from the text. Your answer should be at least one complete paragraph. Answer: The diversity that was revealed within the new nation that I have learned about could be shown with how Equiano and Phillis Wheatley were enslaved for some of their lives and how they were treated so badly. I have also learned the diversity of religion, because religion has drastically changed along with how people celebrate religion. Another thing I have learned about diversity within a new nation was that it was a diverse nation. If someone were black they were treated horribly and were enslaved. (Score for Question 2: ___ of 15 points) 2. Throughout history, literature has been used as a form of protest. Choose two selections from this unit and explain why they can be thought of as protest literature. Discuss each selection in its own complete paragraph. Answer: I think that Thomas Paine’s writing “Common Since” probably can be used as a form of protest. I know that really he is urging people to ratify the Declaration of independence and that’s not much of a protest because he isn’t going against it, he is for it but there are some signs of it in his writing. He is against staying loyal to Britain. He is protesting against the loyalists who want to stay loyal to Britain and not be free. He says in his writing “Your future connection with Britain, whom you can neither love nor honor, will be forced and unnatural, and being formed only on the plan of present convenience, will in a little time fall into a relapse more wretched than the first.” He is urging the people who want to stay loyal to think about it.
