How did slavery influenced the evloution of both Black and White America today?
By the very nature of slavery in America, people learned that blacks were inferior -- and maybe little better than animals. Family life and education were discouraged and often prohibited. It was assumed that black people only worked when they were forced to do so. These values were passed down from parents to children -- both black and white. Thus, some blacks still don't buy into the white American culture.
