In the late 19th century in what ways was the plight of American and Native American and African American immigrants similar and different?
African Americans and Native Americans were both people that were in tune with their ancestors and land. They both found it almost blasphemy to try and sell and or take land. It is believed to be here for everyone to take care of and for it to take care of us. It being the planet, native country, natural resources etc. They both were plagued by diseases that European or Caucasians brought with them when they came in contact with the two groups. The two groups also both first welcomed Europeans until the Europeans either killed them off or enslaved them. The two groups are different because the Africans were kidnapped and brought here to the USA where as Native Americans were just that...Native to this land we now call the USA. They were kidnapped alsoand the Europeans tried to enslave them, but that did not work because they were too weak from the diseases. They were then, simply run off theior land. African Americans wanted to leave and were chained, shackled and beaten, thus could not.Christopher Columbus did not discover America. He was the first to discover it for Spain and Spainards.Native Americans such as the Taino, Cherokee, Black Foot, Sioux, and many others were here already. One similarity is that both were illegally kidnapped, bought, sold and enslaved.

There have been literally hundreds of recognized African American leaders since the 19th century that have urged African Americans to fight racism. One of the first was Frederick Douglas who emerged in the antebellum days of the 19th century. In modern times, the most famous of the African American civil rights leaders was Martin Luther King Jr. He was assassinated in the 1960's.For the most part all respected leaders believed in non-violent protests.
A more unified African American culture began to emerge in the early decades of the nineteenth century because?
What is and example of a perspective that might be outside the scope of the 19th-century western canon?
Jazz and Blues is music genres that originated at the beginning of the 20th century in African American communities in the Southern United States from a confluence of African and European music traditions. From its early development until the present, jazz has incorporated music from 19th and 20th century American popular music.
Most immigrants coming to America prior to the 20th century were hoping to find freedom from religious persecution. Actually, the only real Americans are native American, so even though most 'Americans' complain about immigrants, if they go back to their ancestors, they are in fact immigrants too. So the fact that immigrants come-for whatever reason, it makes the country a better place (and sorta increases the popularity)
The immigrants of the 19th century just wanted a fresh start. Many were poor, mistreated, or wanted jobs. Of course that would not sit well with the American public, just like it doesn't today because, who wants someone from a different country to come in and work for less and steal your job? Not trying to be offensive, that's just how people thought/think. <If I helped you, write some feedback please!>
In sociological terms, "melting pot" refers to a place where people of many different backgrounds come together and adopt a basically uniform culture. The American Melting Pot was the US of the 18th, 19th and first half of the 20th century, when immigrants by and large wanted to adopt the culture they found on their arrival.
