slavery in America.
Slaves in America were treated poorly. A typical day for a slaves was get it up early ,they didn't eat breakfast only dinner, it was really run down furniture if they had any, and some slaves cooked meals inside and he rest worked out in the cotton fields.If they didn't do good they got wiped and got scratches all over them.they also could have taken away their dinner which was their only meal and already wasn't large enough for them for the hours they took. Slaves weren't allowed to go to school. They weren't even allowed to learned. Some master read the bible to slaves , but slaves didn't go to church. slaves were allow to marry and have children but that didn't stop them from being separated sometimes. They were treated like property by them being sold and separated from families. They were also weren't given large living spaces to sleep and they had to be waken up early.If they were caught running away they were whipped and beaten or died.
It took until 1865 for slavery to be illegal in the United States of America with the 13th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. events from 1776 until 1865 that moved our country towards abolishing slavery is the underground railroad, slave abolihers , Abe Lincoln being president , and the civil war. Lincoln and the republican parties views on slavery was that slavery was evil. Also that slavery should be ended. The reasons for the Emancipation Proclamation to turn the Civil War to end slavery was because slavery was becoming worse.
Plan to Improve Race Relations Article
The legacy of slavery has contributed to these racial tensions . It is difficult to forget our country's history of supporting slavery because we had slaves for so long. We also had supported it for a long time.
The one idea I have to improve race relations in America is to tell kids at a young age about the opposite race. I would also have classes to help racist adults to be less racist.The classes would be about 1-2 hours long and 4 nights a week for 6 months.The class teacher would have to be graduated from at least 2 colleges and one of them would have to Harvard. Also the teacher would also have to be really strong . They would have to take special police training incase one of the students is violante . Besides being trained by the police they also have to be trained by the army if the students get violent .
Also besides just adults kids (age 6-12) will get he classes . They will be less hard for the kids , and the teacher will have to be graduated from one college. They will also have to take police training but not as intense. They won't have to be trained by the army . They will also have to be teached by another instructor to how to Handel the kids . Those classes to handel the kids will be 2 hours 2 a week. The classes to teach the kids will be 2 hours 5 times a week for 8 months . It will have fun activities for the children to learn not to be a racist. There will also be a class for teenagers (13-17) . The classes will be 4 hours a week 2 times a week for 9 months . Those classes will also have fun activities.
