How do you think slavery influenced the evolution of both Black and White America today? Explain your answer.
History always plays a major role in social evolution; sometimes good and sometimes bad.
Slavery made our ancestors admit to their own ignorance, causing new laws to be passed and allowing us to accept people for who they are, not what they looked like.
Unfortunately the sins of our ancestors are still being paid for this day. Instead of learning from our ancestors’ mistakes by forgiving and moving on; society broadens the gap between races, putting one before the other instead of treating everyone on an individual basis.
