After reading chapter 3 write a two-page essay that describes the major social and political crisis in the colonies in the late 17th century. This was a time of great upheaval as the land was being transformed, the social landscape was changing and the political dynamics took on a strict racial overtone. Even among Europeans, race and class origins determined the outcome of people′s lives. This chapter goes into this complicated history with facts and interpretations that are still hotly contested today. For example, who is entitled to social privileges due simply to wealth, and to what extent do we allow the lower economic classes to wallow in the muck? The Black Lives Matter movement, reconciling slavery, Native American rights, Latino rights and nativist sentiment that always pushes back on these equity-minded forces are hard to ignore on a daily basis to this day. For this week, write an essay where you quote Foner at least twice in your response. Think about how the book points to different points of view on the same subject across the social spectrum during the 1600s. In short, your essay should briefly describe how the major social crises of the late 1600s affected African Americans, Anglo Americans and Native Americans differently.
