Mainly from its birth - mostly from the Declaration of Independence - America has always been a shelter for those who wanted to be treated as free. Millions immigrated here to the home of liberty and freedom. On the contrary this nation was based on slavery for hundreds of years. Moreover Lincoln and his followers were condemned, to declare the Emancipation Proclamation. For us - Europeans - in the twentieth century it is natural - or it should be natural - to see people equal, independent from their culture, colour or race. I think America's biggest offence against freedom, was the institution of slavery and the treatment of Negroes. Blacks had to face a lot of suffering not just during slavery but after emancipation, too. They had to struggle through more than a century to gain equal rights, and this work still continues nowadays, because they are not treated as equals, yet as they should be. I chose this topic because I wanted to illustrate, how hard it was - and it is today - for blacks to fight for rights which are obvious for us as European white people.
