Harold Runtmen

Traveler

My opinion

My name is Harold Runtmen. I am a American traveler but I left America because I could not endure the way American soldiers have treated people of colored skin. President James Polk sent American troops to kill Mexicans and take over their land in their territory and make slaves of them as they did with black people. As a result, Mexican forces killed the American troop to protect their people and land. Polk claimed the Mexicans invaded American land and declared war.
During my travels I have witnessed house fires, murders, and slavery. Humans should not be treated less than animals. If this war was approved, the Mexicans and freed black slaves would be thrown into slavery. I have lost my faith in America and I have decided to join the Mexican force and fight for freedom.
