Sixteenth-century people might define Ã¢â¬Å"blackÃ¢â¬ similar to the way the Oxford English Dictionary would define it; something filthy or dirty, an obscure or deadly idea, involving decease concepts, and awful thoughts. They compared black to something pertaining to the devil. Since this was the concept of the word black, Englishmen began to believe that black people were derived from the actual word and made the sixteenth-century people believe that they are bad people to the world; when in reality, the blacks were as normal as the Englishmen. Most Englishmen believed that the main reason why the AfricanÃ¢â¬â¢s skin are so dark was because of the sun. This theory was misleading due to the fact that Americans, who were in the same line as the Africans, still had light colored skin. The theories included in the text changed the way Englishmen viewed the Africans. To them, the Africans were considered a Ã¢â¬Å"noveltyÃ¢â¬ and were ugly by just their complexion. Most Englishmen and Christians are familiar with the concept of heathenism. Englishmen would commonly differentiate the heathenisms of Indians and Negroes. Heathenism was typically a general refusal to take suitable values. The communication between both sides was very distinct and difficult; though, Englishmen would only make it seem as if they werenÃ¢â¬â¢t meeting the requirements. The sexual behaviors that the Africans performed were normal to the Englishmen. They took their sexuality and thought of it as a way that animals behave themselves. The comparison of the Negro to the animal was like calling them creatures and it disrespected them. The interpretation strengthened the prejudice towards the Africans because it made the Englishmen acknowledge them for the way they are. The pr... ...ering American industry. Henry ClayÃ¢â¬â¢s opinion on Free Trade as expressed in the document is that it never existed and that if we do destroy our laws on trade to make it free then it wouldnÃ¢â¬â¢t be free until other foreign nations have made theirs free as well. Lastly, he lists that America would be able to accommodate themselves to this unjust from the way America is already flexible to changes. According to Harriet Hanson Robinson, one of the primary reasons why women worked in the mills was to make sure that the men of the family can continue pursuing their education so that it can later benefit the family economically. I believe that the emancipation of slaves was passed before the right of women to vote because slaves were seen under women and were treated harshly. They didnÃ¢â¬â¢t realize that women were being treated harshly as well by not being given equal rights.
