Cameron Chaves 3/21/13 Class: A history European imperialism took place between 1875 and 1914. This was a time when European countries took over many parts of Africa and Asia. There are many views on this but I think this should have never taken place. Because of all the slavery and also the pain that people had to go through.

There is no reason why the Europeans needed to take over parts of Asia and Africa when these people did nothing to give the Europeans reason to do so. Everyone has something to contribute to society. But the Europeans never gave anyone but themselves a chance to contribute. They had to offer their knowledge of eating, warfare, and their general knowledge of the world around them. The Europeans looked at the Africans and Asians as worthless. This was one of the reasons the Europeans did not give these groups a chance.

There was once a time where African Americans were not allowed to enlist in the army, vote, or do anything that they were forbidden to do. This was also when the civil war in the United States began, from 1861-1865 the country was in war. The United States was a divided country when it came to the topic of segregation and what was fair.
