This has negatively !ed to poor social economic situation in America. The law social economic level may have originated from the negative factors that resulted from colonization which the British colonialist set foot in the 19th century. Some changes were negative and others were positive. Some of the negative changes that the British colonialists brought were the issue of formal education, where the Africans were denied and later they were given basic education to enable them concentrate on agriculture.
