African American The ethic group that I belong to is African American and I also belong to Caucasian. The reason why I choose this group is because I won’t to know more information about the history of African American. African American was brought here by ship as slaves in 1619. European went to Africa and enslaved African to come to the new world to do work for them. They loaded them up on ships and chained them to poles so they could not get away. The Europeans scared Africans to make sure they would not revolt against them on the way over. They beat and killed them to set an example for the others. They should them that they were not scared to kill any of them that tried to go against them. Once they reached the docks of the new world they were sold to the highest bidder or people that they were brought for. The new owner of the slave would take them to their house to do chores and other deeds for them. When they worked for these people they would be working for their freedom. They would work for English people for several of years and when they worked off their debt they would be allowed to leave to start a family or become farmers. African American forced many kinds of racism, segregation and prejudice.
