It is no secret that African Americans in the land currently known as the United States have been abused and mistreated for centuries Some of the most horrific displays of the loss of humanity and respect for life have found their victims in the African American community Early on in the Americas during the age of colonialism merchants found it was most profitable to import slaves from Africa which they could get cheap from feuding tribes to work of sugar and tobacco plantations Soon the islands and the mainland were teeming with African American activity which was suppressed by the wealthy and powerful landowners Their culture and heritage was squashed and replaced by forceful missionaries and preachers with perverted interpretations of Christs message of understanding and compassion The African Americans moved on through the slavery issue which grew to become and epidemic one that required an immediate and absolute cure And they therefore turned to politic and Abraham Lincoln whose drive and determination led them from bondage to freedom but at the same time opened a world of new problems To begin with their freedom was limited and they were not given the same opportunities as whites Many expected to buy land but were thwarted to find that black laws had been passed to inhibit their ability to do so As a result blacks were forced to move into low income housing slums because they were jobless and uneducated For them to attain jobs though they needed employers who were willing to hire them and after the Civil War most employers were loathe to hire blacks Such hate groups as the Ku Klux Klan flared up and hatred and tensions ran high and over time blacks began to feel to discomfort the whites so hastily put upon them After a considerable period of waiting and working many blacks moved north where acceptance was more likely though still not probably This mass exodus
