I didn't think this class would be any different than it is except for the fact that we are learning about race and discrimination. Honestly, history bores me but i have been enjoying to learn how people treat others that are not from their own country...I would have to agree with Obama's quote because America has always been a strong nation.

According to this film, I think it does show a form of colonism because Jamaican labor workers were not happy with what they were getting back from US and other countries. They thought they were working too much and too hard while the other countries were making so much more than the actuall producers. This can be compared to other forms of colonism we seen in the cluster, such as, the china labor workers and how they only got 10cents an hour to work long hours making Mardi Gras beads. In both films we see the countires with greater power can take over the poorer countries and make greater profit by barely paying them anything at all. I don't understand why the money can shared somewhat decently so that everyone involved can at least have a normal way of living....
