AFPRL 100/01 Prof. C. Wambu Unit 2- Race and Racism: Hanes Walton/Robert C. Smith – Chap. 1 Racism is an issue that was not only common during slavery in the United States but is an on going issue even today. Racism and white supremacy are fundamental in understanding the progress of the American democracy. Thomas Jefferson was a principal author if the Declaration of Independence, and he supported the institution of slavery. The definition of racism, as stated in the textbook is: “the predication of decisions and policies on considerations of race for the purpose of subordinating a racial group and maintaining control over it.” Racism is the reason for white supremacy and black inferiority. People who believe that African Americans are inherently inferior people are known as white supremacists. Although it wasn’t so apparent, Jefferson was one of those “white supremacists” that stopped the American nation from moving on both culturally and socially.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
