i think til this day that slavery still has an effect on people today. Not just because of color but also because people are “STILL” stereotype. There are just people who dont like people because of the past& because future. Me being an African American I can say that there are more productive white American’s because they are simply in belief of making it. being born in raised in South Central people my color dont seem to care. There just a few i know who wants to make it….Time Up…G2G

  Silvano Garcia wrote @

I think that slavery still has an effect on the U.S today. Because there are some people that still discriminate on other people. And they may feel better than other people and may feel superoir than others.I think that slavery is still going even though it may be different.

  Luis Gallegos wrote @

I believe that it kind of did cause an effect. I am not trying to be stereotypical, but nowadays African-Americans and Mexicans get mad sometimes for no reason. I think slavery caused this.

YES IT DOES, EVERY SINCE SLAVERY, THERE’S BEEN DISCRIMINATION. THERE HAS BEEN PROBLEMS WIT PEOPLE BASED ON COLOR, AND WEALTH. FOR EXAMPLE BLACKS AND WHITES STILL DON’T GET ALOE LIKE THEY SHOULD, BUT THERE’S ALSO BLACKS VS. HISPANICS, BLACKS VS. BLACKS, AND HISPANICS VS. WHITES. EVERYTHING THAT OCCUR TODAY IS BECAUSE IF THE PAST.

  Karla..ATD! wrote @

I THINK IT DID BECAUSE EVEN THOUGH SLAVERY ENDED THE PEOPLE STILL WERE NOT FREE…IT KEPT ON GOING THEY DID NOT HAVE THE SAME RITES AS THE WHITE PEOPLE…IT ACTUALLY AFFECTED THE REST OF THE GENERATION OF THE ANCESTOR SLAVES..BECAUSE THEY USED TO SAY THEIR ANECDOTES ABOUT WHEN THEY WERE SLAVES AND THEY DID NOT LIKE IT BECAUSE IT REALLY LEFT A PERMANENT MARK ON THEIR LIFE!

  Devante O’connor wrote @

I think that slavery has an effect with the people
because we still call ”N” towards each other.

  LaQuesha wrote @

I think The Only Real Effect It Has On The People Of The U.S Today Is People Holding A Grudge Against It.
Althought Its With God Reason, Its Also An Incident
That Began Thousands Of Yars Ago..

  stephanie G. wrote @

Yes it did have an effect on the US. Many Africans were brought to the US as slaves. They were put to work almost every where in the US,not many got to see it but the ones that did were in a more worse situation.

  ; Ashley N. wrote @

Yes I do think and believe that the slavery has an effect on the U.S. and the people here today. I believe the effect today is how people specifically us the “N” word. I think so because people now a days of all race use this word. They all believe that this word is okay to be used in any kind of manner. I believe that all U.S. people were to stop using this certain word, things and problems wont be started as regular as they are. Also I believe that if people stop using this word there wont be a lot of fighting.

But about the slavery thing, I believe that racism til this day still exist, because some what you call white folks, still use the “N” word and has hateriage towards a lot of African Americans.

  Lawrence De’Base wrote @

I DON’T THINK SLAVERY IS STILL AROUND WE GET TO DO ALOT OF THINGS ON OUR OWN WITHOUT HAVING PEOPLE TRYING TO SELL US AND WERE AROUND ALOT OF DIFFERENT RACES EVERYDAY.SO NO SLAVERY IS DONE AND I DON’T THINK ITS COMING BACK.

I THINK THAT IN SOME AND THAT AIN’T RIGHT FOR ANYONE TO BE TREATED LIKE SLAVES OR ANYTHING LIKE THAT BECAUSE FOR NO MATTER WHAT WE ARE GOING TO BE TOGETHER AS ONE. ALL OVER THE PEOPLE ARE DIFFERENT BY MANY WAY AND THAT WILL CONTINUE FOR THE REST OF OUR LIVES AND WE SHOULD BE PROUD OF WHO WE ARE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  Nayely wrote @

I think it does because ttaht is what influced many racist peopel to discriminat others because of their past .Slavery lead other people to think they could treat people realy bad wich is not true every one should be treated equal because under gods eyes for him everyone is equal .So peole might think that because of what their ancestors went to they have the right to treat them with disrespect wich is not true.
