The small contingent of Spaniards compelled the Taíno, numbering perhaps 30,000, to mine for gold; the rigors of forced labor and the losses from rebellion reduced the Taíno population to about 4,000 by 1514, by which time the mines were nearly depleted. Nulty, Bishop of Meath, tells of 700 human beings evicted in one day in 1847 from one estate (Parnell Movement, p. 114), and other appalling instances may be cited. Regulations for voting are determined by the individual states for federal as well as for local offices, and requirements vary from state to state.

Potash works of large extent were afterward erected at Suflicld, Conn., by a Scotch company, who brought every portion of the apparatus with them, and by prudent munagemont nnd business tact succecibd better. D., of I'biladelphia, bought ono of the first and sent it to his farm in New Castle count;-, Delaware, where he made some very interesting experiments. The Huron and Iro quois, as with other tribes, had an unfortunate habit of torturing a captive warrior to death, which horrified Champlain.� The Spanish were horrified at human sacrifice, and the French at torturing captives.� Cannibalism however, was a myth virtually made from whole cloth by Columbus on his first voyage (a favorite European myth, to describe “savage” people) and a self-serving one that did not disappear.� Those were definitely dark sides to Native American cultures, but it all depended on what “atrocity” captured the European fancy. [123] � Burning people to death was a European specialty, which horrified Native Americans.� Being fed to the dogs (a Spanish specialty ) was considered the worst way to die for the natives of today’s Latin America, and the Spanish fed native infants to their dogs as a canine delicacy.� The highly warlike Aztecs did not kill women, children, and the elderly, which a warrior knew had no honor in it (although an offering cache of about 40 sacrificed children was discovered during the excavation of Tenochtitl�n’s great temple, during the 1970s).� The Europeans preferred killing women, children, and the elderly instead of native warriors, as they were far easier to kill, and that practice would eventually render the tribe extinct, which was the desired result.� Europeans were selective in what horrified them about Native American practices, and would usually greatly exaggerate the darker aspects.� While many tribes that Europeans encountered were relatively gentle and friendly, anthropologists looking for peaceful Golden Ages of the human past generally come away disappointed .� That “help” that Champlain gave the Huron tribe was short-lived.� The next year, they marauded across the land with their newfound military advantage and annihilated a Mohawk party that they came upon.� The Mohawk did not raid Huron lands for a generation.� The Mohawk fought a war with the Mahican to gain access to Dutch arms at Fort Orange in 1624.� French Jesuit missionaries had been proselytizing in North America since 1611, and their tenure in North America was the gentlest European effort that those early days of invasion would see.� Although there was sincere, soul-saving effort made by many Jesuits, it was part of a larger pattern of exploitation that France inflicted on the natives.� No matter how seemingly benevolent the Jesuit intent, their presence exterminated the natives.� Priestly zeal was exploited by French elites, similar to how Peace Corps volunteer zeal is manipulated today, or how the CIA exploited Ralph McGehee's zeal.�� Wherever the Jesuits showed up, smallpox broke out, beginning as early as 1625.

The majority of states and school districts also demand that applicants for teaching posts turn in a score reflecting their competence in their area competence on the National Teacher Examinations (NTE) or on Praxis I or Praxis II written tests. As the measure made it unlawful to hire without authorization to work in the United States, avoidant treatment toward "foreign-appearing workers" increased to bypass the required record-keeping or risk of sanctions. [187] Massive racial differentials in account of wealth remain in the United States: between whites and African Americans, the gap is a factor of twenty. [188] An analyst of the phenomenon, Thomas Shapiro, professor of law and social policy at Brandeis University argues, "The wealth gap is not just a story of merit and achievement, it's also a story of the historical legacy of race in the United States." [189] Differentials applied to the Social Security Act (which excluded agricultural workers, a sector that then included most black workers), rewards to military officers, and the educational benefits offered returning soldiers after World War II.

With a view to the establishment of a great emporium of manufactures, and as a primary object the manufacture of cotton cloth, the company selected the Falls of the Passaic as the seat of their operations, the Great Falls having been ascertained to have an elevation of 104 feet, and to be capa- ble of driving 247 undershot water-wheels, and the Little Falls four miles above, a fall of 86 feet, sufficient to drive 78 water-wheels. The PAC had a view of a massive uprising that would allow it to seize power.
