Written By: Tommy Nazario
Slavery In America
A typical day for slaves were not easy. They worked sunrise till sundown. every slave including Elderly and small children were worked all day. Slaves usually got Sunday off to relax and rest. slaves were punished by whipping, shackling, hanging, beating, burning, mutilation, branding and imprisonment. punishment was often meted out in response to disobedience or perceived infractions, but sometimes abuse was performed to re-assert the dominance of the master over the slaves. In the South black people were not usually allowed to attend church services.Those churches that did accept them would segregate them from white worshipers. Most slave owners do not allow church because if they learn to read the bible they can learn about being equal.
It took until 1865 for slavery to be illegal in the United States with the 13th Amendment to the U.S Constitution. The Amendment basically states that no slavery should exist in the U.S and there is no more slavery. The amendment was passed by the constitution on January 31, 1865. And ratified by the states on December, 6 1865
My Plan To Improve Race Relations
My Idea For changing Race Relations
My plan to change race relations is to make a new law. They law will be called "The Race Relation Law". Every time someone is caught being "racist" or being mean to a black because there black will be fined $250 for the first offense. Every time someone gets caught another time the fine will be raised $50. For the third offense they will have to see a judge and will be put in jail for 30 days. If they keep violating the law after that they will be sentenced to 90 days or longer in prison.
