The communities had a sense of their homelands national pride, but celebrated the freedoms of America. They did not mix with other cultures because they did not want to mix their culture with a less important, less worthy culture from another area. The Anglo-Saxon Americans did not want to mix with the African Americans so they passed a series of "Jim Crow Laws" to keep African Americans away from white Americans.Imperialism brought to two groups together. The first group, the imperialising country, were not brought together as strongly because the imperialism did not effect them very much, if it effected them at all. It effected the region being imperialised greatly. It caused a great surge of nationalism. The people had to raise up together to defend themselves. Most of the African people banned together to form an army to fight off the European invaders.

It brought people with common interests to ban together and stand up to help out one another.
