Many scenes in his novel make slaves look like fools. Mark Twain does this purposely to make colored people look and sound like fools, because he is a racist person. Before even getting to chapter, one Mark Twain puts a notice on the book. "Persons attempting to find a motive in this narrative will be prosecuted; persons attempting to find a moral will be banished; persons attempting to find a plot in it will be shot" (Twain, 2). Twain uses this to show people how he is as a person.
Then the death of his brother Edmund had caught a case of the measles and died February 2, 1900, which impacted Hitler with much devastation causing him to become slightly detached.

Therefore, he thought it was his responsibility and right to rid the Earth of the people he considered, “parasitic vermin of the human race.” Adolf Hitler was probably the cruelest and most evil man alive. Who would slaughter thousands of people only because they were a certain race or part of a certain religion? Was it the fact that his father and he frequently fought his brother, Edmund’s death, or the fact that he was declined three times to the Academy of Fine Arts?

About eleven million people were killed because of Nazi genocidal policy from many different races and religions. Not only the Jews, but the gypsies, Poles and Slavs, mentally and physically handicapped, Jehovah’s Witnesses, homosexuals, African-German children, religious leaders, and many other small groups were tremendously affected and destroyed during this dark time period.

The Enlightenment era was made up of a vast majority of those who accepted slavery, but in the end lost their humanity.

Mark Twain wrote The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn to expose the hypocrisy of racism and religion in society. In the period he wrote the book, there were two contradictory belief systems regarding race: one stated all men were equal, while the other stated the exact opposite, as it stated all blacks were inferior to whites. This divided society into two groups: the “civilized” (whites) and the “savages” (blacks). Through his writing of The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Twain displayed his opposition of this arrogant and hypocritical belief system, a belief system that unfortunately still exists in today’s world. One of the prime examples of Twain’s opposition of this belief system was his portrayal of Huck’s father, Pap, versus his portrayal of Widow Douglas’ slave, Jim.
This meant that these bastard children were slaves despite their paternal heritage because their mother was a slave. The effect of this revelation was to shock and offend the morals of the conservative northern whites. Northern society scorned people in adulterous and interracial relationships. By portraying these Southerners as immoral and adulterous, Douglass wanted to cultivate in his audience a damaging opinion of southern slaveholders (Quarles ix).

Under the previous Fitzsimons control, the slaves were living unsupervised, without a master in permanent residency, and were overall a very unhealthy group. In order to fulfill his dream of turning the plantation into a profitable enterprise, Hammond would have to conquer a complex social order among the enslaved people. In attempt to assert his dominance, Hammond stripped the blacks of many freedoms they once enjoyed. Hammond was threatened by the assembly of slaves who gathered in worship and praise. Hammond wanted to psychologically dominate the slaves and used the regulation of church to enforce that control upon the negroes by emphasizing obedience and tranquility in Sunday afternoon services led by white ministers.
Both men witnessed the torture of humans by people claiming to live by the commandments of peace and love that Christ lays out in his commandments. In Douglass’s situation, salves were expected to know the Christian faith without any means to do so. In Casa’s situation, the men and women being attacked and abused did not want to participate in the Christian faith because of how their “Christian” owners acted. In the similar horrific events of histories, slave owners acted as nominal Christians and slaves were deprived of their natural rights of knowledge, the rights that God gives to each
Many believed it the curse given upon Noah’s son Ham for “looking upon his father’s nakedness” (p17). Each of these contrasting views on color needed to be used in this book.
