All About Slavery...

How slavery began...

Slavery began with the triangular trade. The triangular trade is the trade of goods between Europe,Africa,and America. Slave traders brought the slaves over on slave ship. Slave ships are ships that brought the slaves over. The slave ships were over crowded most of the time. They also didn't have good places for the slaves to stay. When the slaves were on the ship,they were on the lowest part of the ship and were put in cages at night. They also had to do choirs on the ship and got very little food. There were also lots of diseases. When they got to America the slaves were sent the slave auctions. When the slaves were sold the owners brought them to their plantations. That is why the south needed so many slaves. It was to keep up with the high demand for cotton in the south. That is how slavery got started.

Slave in America were treated poorly

Slave were treated really badly because they had to work from before sun rise to after sun set. They had little food. They had to pick a certain amount of cotton each day or they would get punished. Slaves weren't allowed to got to school and if they married the slave owner could separate the family at anytime. If you were a slave that ran away you could be whipped as much as the master wanted or even worse you would be hung.

Lincoln's views

Lincoln didn't like the idea of slaves but he didn't want to separate the country over it. He would rather save the country and then let slavery dwindle down but if he could end slavery and keep the country together he would. But his first priority was to keep the country together.

Is there still racial tension in america?

I think there is because there are a lot of stories with the police and schools.But i also believe that it isn't all children. I think it is somewhat the adults. I am not saying that all adults are racist. But, I do think some are.The reason i think that is because the kids aren't the police and there are mostly stories about police. I also think people don't see the true story for some of them. Then they make there own conclusions on what happen and tell their children or others and spread false information.But the reason why people hear about these stories is because somebody makes a big deal.i am not saying that some shouldn't be but when you don't have the full story how can you judge it or pass on the story. Like the thing in Cleveland. If i told you, the cop just shot a African american for holding a gun on him. what would you think? now let me add more details. the cop just shot an African american kid that was pointing the guy at other and then pointed it at the cop. now what do you think about the story? See that is what i am saying! it is all how you say the story in my opinion. That's why i think racial tension is still in america today.

why does it still exist?

It exist because everyone is not changing and loving everyone as they are. They keep judging on skin color and other things.But in my opinion i don't think that is only the racist, i also think it's for people that aren't like us, like gays, transgender,and lesbians.which in my opinion we are all the same. We all have five fingers and all that, but everyone is different. Your different by your favorite color,favorite sport, who we like, what we like , what color hair we have , why we do things. Those are all different things about us and if you put those together you will never find anyone that is exactly the same. But really the problem is we aren't exerting people as themselves. If you think that everyone is going to fit into a model then your wrong, nobody is perfect. Nobody will be the same as somebody. The only was is if they act, but then their not being themselves. So just except people for who they are and it will go away.

What am i going to do ...

I am going to make a necklace that has two hands. They are going to be holding hands with words on top of it "love one another".I feel like this would help because it would be like a symbol. to be nice to everyone. But your probably wondering, how will people figure know about it? Well, i am going to make a commercial about it and what it means if you are wearing it.
