It was not until the 1950s, however, that oil production began in Venezuela. Oil accounts for a quarter of the nation\'s gross domestic product and three-quarters of export earnings, and Venezuela is South America\'s leading producer and one of the few non-Arab members of OPEC.

Affirmative Action The problem of discrimination has been around since the writing of the Declaration of Independence in 1776. The U.S. Constitution said nothing of equality; instead, it legitimized the institution of slavery. The Emancipation Proclamation issued January 1, 1863, set slaves in the confederate states free. The Thirteenth Amendment permanently abolished slavery. The former confederate states, not wanting to let go of their control over blacks, established the restrictive Black

Even after emancipation, blacks were segregated from whites – in some states by law, and by social practice almo

Right from the very start, slavery was a controversial issue and it was argued with the constant reminder of man\'s inhumanity to man. This was evidence in movements such as the abolitionists and in the literature. Books such as Uncle Tom\'s Cabin by Harriet Beecher Stowe did much to fuel the controversy of
