Discussion post of American history

Prompt: This week’s reading demonstrates how slavery became a race-based system. This certainly provides us an example of the importance of laws and customs working together to create social norms and definitions since these laws worked to define Africans and African Americans as inferior. What do you think of all of all this? Use the documents to explain your thoughts. In addition to today’s laws and customs, what else is used to create today’s social norms and definitions (besides laws)? Reflect on these questions in a couple of paragraphs.
