The Root of All Evil
Since the beginning of time, one great evil has corrupted the world. The evil gives one person the right to abuse, use, and misuse another human being just for his or her own personal gain. One would think that after all of these years the issue of slavery would be done with, but people today still have slaves and are racist to those who were slaves. No matter what time period, slavery and racism always seemed to expand and cause great conflicts. During the 1830’s to the 1860’s, slavery was expanded through the major conflicts with sectionalism, greed, and want for territorial expansion.
