					   The most important topic was
    The Middle Passage. What I
    know about The Middle
    Passage is that Africans
    suffered and were killed on
    the boat when they were
    heading to the United States.
    This topic was important
    because Africans had a bad
    past and they didn’t deserved
    to die and suffer. I choose this
    topic because it was really
    important to me. It effects us
    today because if it was never
    for The Middle Passage the
    Africans would never be here
    in the United States.
   The most important topic was The
    Ghetto. What I know about the
    Ghetto is that Blacks and Latinos
    were forced to live in certain cities
    and there was still Racism. Also
    there was a law named Plessy v.s
    Furguson that kept them seperate
    but equal. This topic is important
    because Blacks and Latinos didn’t
    have the right to live in certain
    places. Also it’s important
    because Black people faced
    terrible laws because of the Jim
    Crow Laws. Lastly, I choose this
    topic because it effects us today.
    It effects us today because there
    wasn’t many jobs in the Ghetto
    and it led to many problems such
    as violence and lack of money.
   What I know about The
    Mexican American War is that
    the Spanish were kicked out of
    Mexico, Polk, the President of
    the U.S wanted some land
    from Mexico for the U.S to be
    larger. Also Zachery Taylor
    went into Mexico with large
    troops and attacked Mexico
    and Mexico Attacked back.
    This topic was important
    because if it was never for
    Polk we wouldn’t be here in
    the United States. I choose this
    topic because this had to do
    with today. This effects us
    today because we wouldn’t
    be here thanks to James Polk.
