The History chapters filled with the oppression and colonization stories of Americans and Europeans that have surpassed in creating disputes and abuse towards non-Christians and ethnic group of people. The era of the 19th century is inevitable for the oppression and tyranny of American-European in various regions of Asia, Africa, and America. This paper divided into two parts. First part is about the ideology of the oppression and slavery. Few aspects of the historical background of African-American slavery and the role of oppression added in this section. Part two of the assignment is about the application of the oppression model to the school bullying and the examination of the relationship between oppressor and oppressed and their social outcomes. Thus, the assignment has the analysis on the macroscopic and as well as microscopic level.
The people who were oppressors and slave throughout the phase of brutality and crudity of colonial and confining people were so much subjected to feel the pain, tyranny and cruel regimes that they even lost the idea of reconstruction. The earlier period is full of captured Africans who were the victims of prejudice. There were many thousands of enslaved people that brought to the North American region by the late 17th century. This disparity was all happened in a long chain of historical events and to expand the colonial power and maintain oppression; enactment was passed in 1692 to prioritize slavery. But the slavery did not prevail, and it ended with a new beginning in the form of slave riots. Although U.S law states the right for black people, but the unjust behavior still come over in many forms such as racial discrimination.
Oppression is an unjustified treatment that prolongs without any reason to it. The point of cruelty is just to degrade and dehumanize the people and make them slaves. The ideology described in an example from American-African racism history. Africans were targeted and controlled for the purpose to create a society whole of slaves. Their rights looted, and they were obliged to live in the confinement of slavery. On the other hand, the oppressors or the noble people had all the rights to have freedom, liberty, and peace.
The modern African-American people are now living the life with some amendments for equality in the American system. The idea of oppression denies the real significance of any individual and African-American living in equity because of the mindset of people that helped in the transmutation of the environment for the oppressed Africans. The environment that you live in and the condition you face let you the space to learn and to absorb. The only thing that helped to transcend this oppression- slavery conflict between two nations is the untiring perseverance
This model of oppression can apply to the modern form that is school bullying. The meaning of oppression is simply getting domination over the suppressed people by throwing cruel behavior deliberately. The culture of school bullying was evolving at all school levels. The reason for its emergence is the disparity in setting up students of low grade from high grade. This difference evokes the aggressive and violent behavior. And consequently, dehumanization element builds among students. The blackmailers or oppressors control the behavior and social life of oppressed students and mediate an expression of slavery in the form of social disconnection. This notion of social isolation pushes the student to the next level into social death. The example of modern oppression is a girl of age 12 was reported to be threatened by his friends at Georgetown school of Texas. She called by words like slave, ape.
Oppression and slavery both these words have been a part of many countries many nations. it has become a history on the major scale. The cruel meaning of oppression and slavery has changed into modern day slavery. The focus should be to pay concentrate on the individualism, respect, integrity, and humanity. No one has the right to born as a slave, or no one has the right to deprive any person of his freedom and liberty. The world would be peaceful when there is equality. The need is to make yourself more humanize and more supportive towards each other.
