To be completely broad, I would have to say that the whole idea of enslaving Africans was definitely a dystopian circumstance. These people received limited knowledge and freedom and were forced to live in fear of white people. This whole period of time was extremely traumatizing for those living through it as well as their descendants. I would say African Americans today are still somewhat living in a less brutal slavery dystopia than their ancestors. We still are seen to have limited resources and abilities than our counterparts and we still are not always treated as equal to them. Which instills that sense of inferiority/superiority between the two, which is very common in dystopian settings.
