In this paper the writer looks at the beginnings of slavery in America. The writer then discusses how slave trading became more and more profitable as the market for humans grew. Further, the writer discusses how repressive laws prohibited blacks from earning money. The writer notes that such laws produced racism as an integral aspect of American society and after 1700, racism was central to American culture. In this essay, the writer also looks at how the African-Americans managed to influence society and notes that, although it is not clear what early slaves thought and believed, they did bring creativity to their lives and found ways to adapt.
