Slavery in America

Slavery began when the European merchants started the triangular trade route. The triangular trade was a route were items and good were traded between the countries. Many slave ships traveled the path and the slave ships were ships that took blacks and brought them to the USA. Most of the slaves went to the south because they grew cotton there which made many people rich. Then the cotton gin was invented which gave the south more money to get more slaves and make them even richer. Many of the slaves in America were treated poorly. The slaves had very little to eat and were mostly in very bad conditions. They went to bed very late and had to wake up early to pick crops. When the slaves did any thing they were not supposed to do they were whipped. The slaves were very limited to do anything they were not aloud to read or right or if they were caught they would be punished. If the slaves were caught running away they would be beaten harshly or even killed. It took until 1865 for slavery to be illegal in the united states with the 13th amendment to the US constitution. Many wars happened to stop slavery. Such as the civil war which the north had won which had taken 4 years to actually end. President Lincoln view on slavery was that it should be stopped and that the slaves should be free. The civil war was the war that stop slavery for the most part and the emancipation Proclamation made the civil war into a war.

Improve Race Relations

Improving race relations is one of the most important things in society today. The way we can improve race relations is by education children and adult on how bad it can actually be. If the race relations are taught in school it will set things right and there will not be as much racism there is now and it will hopefully help people react less racist to other races and to be less of a stereotype. Also If there were books to educate people on how bad racism is it will surely help other to learn how to treat the other races the right way and to help others to not be as racist. Also if people were to make advertisements to show how bad race relations really is it could help the children and adults to see hoe bad the racism really is and how it harms the other races. They could put the advertisements on benches in parks or on buses or even just build boards on a high way to inform other people on how being racist is very bad and it could even teach them something about the other races and how to not be to stereotypical. It would even help if parents started telling their children about how bad it is to be racist and how to react to other races. There can be groups and clubs around the US in schools or just random clubs outside of school for adults and children. The clubs will teach about how slaves were treated and how there are racist group such as the KKK and they will also teach about how to act and how not to be a stereotype to other races. There can be fundraisers for race relations so they can advertise on how bad the race relations can actually be. There can even be a building were the race clubs can be called. The building will be called that race respecting recreational center. For short the building will be called the RRC. These will all help on the racist thought today.
