FC: Slavery assignment By: Shania Cabrera
1: Fear in slavery | Slaves are always in fear. Scared of who they will be traded to next. Scared of the posibility would they survive the trip of where ever they were headed.Scared of being caught when trying to escape. Even in freedom I believe they would be scared for someone might capture them again.
2: Atlantic slave trade | Europeans packed slaves into ships where they had no personal space. It caused diseases and many did not make it threw the middle passage. Racism spread, many whites in Europe and the Americans looked at Africans as inferior humans. Europeans used guns to pay for slaves. About 400 years this lasted causing 2 or 3 million deaths because of it.
3: The effect of slavery | The slave trade sometimes encouraged wars and increased tension with neighboring people. Slave raiders seized healthy young men and women to plant and harvest so they wouldn't face disaster. Diaspora caused great suffering to the ones who were taken captive and those who survived struggled to keep their culture alive. But it also spread some of it to different parts of the world.
4: How I feel about slavery | I feel that slavery should have never existed. We should all be treated equal and because of this many people are still racist against blacks and whites. So very few people don't feel the way I do. Martin L. King was a very wise and brave man. I'm glad he stood up for what he believed in because I agree. Look at us now we have our first black president and I think he's doing a great job.
