Have you ever wonder what slavery is really like? Slavery was one of the
greatest tragedies in many different kind of histories. There were many
different appearance of slavery. Slavery have existed in different societies
throughout the history. Most of the slaves are considered the property of
others, many slave have been forced to work for long hours without the
owners paying them. Owners, could freely sold or given away to other owners
in a very cheap price.
Over the years, most Africans who have came to America who were
purchased through the slave trade. And white colonist viewed africans as
rude and “turned to the slave trade to fill their labor needs.” The white
English settlers don't know any other culture beside their culture; people
were thought to be white or Christian, and anything else are a lack of
manners. “During the Middle Ages in A.D. 500- 1500 , the slavery was reintroduce
in the modern age.” Over 10 million black African slaves had been
brought to Americas, and over 2 million slaves had died before they reach the
In 1715 there were about 23,000 slaves, the slaves ships were built in New
England shipyards, and New England curiosity became a triangular slave
trade between the New England, West Indies, and Africa. The slavery had
flourished in the South, and the South's economy trust on cotton, sugarcane,
tobacco, and many other crops. And most slaves in the South worked in fields
and “where called field hands.” And thousands were served as cooks, maids,
cleaners, and a few skilled work of masons.
In 1852 a publication of Harriet Beecher Stowe's novel Uncle Tom's Cabin
helped popularize the antislavery movement. But the activities of such radical
abolitionists as William L. Garrison (1805-79), Frederick Douglass (1817-95),
and John Brown (1800-1859) only increased the conflict of slaveholders. For
the example, John Brown's raid on Harpers Ferry, Virginia, on October 16,
1859, made Southerners so angry that they began what Garrison described as
a "reign of terror." They randomly arrested and abused innocent travelers from
the North. John Brown's raid brought the issue of slavery to a beggining.
It is necessary to pay tribute to all these people who in spite of the cruelty in
their lives managed to remain kind inside and some of them even tried to
understand their masters. Thought the master-slave relations did have
exceptions they still remained individual, where the only side expressing its
opinion was the master’s side.Yet, this has become one of the most important
lessons for the human nation, there is no condition under which one person
can own control over another human.

Should schools ban junk food?
Obesity in children is an issue throughout North America and the habits that you
learn when you are young are the ones that you will carry through to adulthood.
However a 2001 general surgeon report that 14% of the American are obese. Eating lots of
sugary food makes students less than able to pay attention in class or perform well on
To begin with, school should set a good example of nutritious food for students.
This would fit well with nutrition curriculum in health classes. Parents should monitor
their child's diet, but while a students is away from their parents, the school should
function as a parent and do what is best for the students. And while parents cannot be
there to watch their student's meal, a school should be responsible of making sure that
those meal do not include junk food. Sometimes students will be attempted to smuggle
even if it is banned. Enforcing such ban would force the school to officially check
student's lunch boxes, lockers, and desks. This will harm students' privacy.
Schools could offer healthy options for there students in cafeteria meals without
banning junk food from the schools. The school districts facing smaller budget because of
state deficits relied on money from the vending machine and soda agreement. And junk
food is not bad in itself - In moderation junk food could be one of the healthy diet. The
surgeon recommended that the schools provide a healthier food options and restrict
acces to junk food in a vending machine.
I believe that we find it uneasy these days to let someone else to make a rule.
Parents should teach their student a correct way, and set an example by having a
nutrition and normal life style. When parents teach there children to their earliest age,
they will establish those habits naturally. If the parents limit junk food to their students at
home, this will help the students understand why. Teaching kids how to eat for a long and
healthy life goes beyong a bandaid approach to junk food bans in school.
Students can make practice making good choices and parents should guide them
through example and talking or explaining when they fail to make a good ones. The less
opportunity they have to do these, the more likely the students will not be able to know
hoe to make good choices of their own. This is a bigger issue for the health of the
