Examples of colonial in a Sentence

  1. Mitchell Reiss:

    At Colonial Williamsburg, we well know that a nation’s past is a foundation for its future.

  2. Nicolas Butor:

    He ruled Senegal through terror, burning villages and massacring people, yet despite that he continues to be glorified in Lille, we want the Faidherbe statue removed from public space. We need to stop glorifying racist colonial figures.

  3. Maria Tam:

    The emergency legislation is something that is left behind by the colonial British government. It's nothing to do with the Basic Law. It's entirely in the power of the highly autonomous region, at the moment there are still plenty of tools. We have different articles in the police force ordinance and articles in the public order ordinance which we can still invoke to control the situation. We haven't got to the stage when we really have to engage in enacted laws by the chief executive with the executive council to, for example, enact anti-mask or interception of internet messages. We're quite a distance from that.

  4. Stephanie Coontz:

Men began to embrace a masculine identity that was based on not doing women's work, women also began to embrace a new identity, unheard of in colonial days : We are the family expert. We know how to raise kids. We know how to change diapers. Institutions began to be organized around this idea.

  5. Kendall Brown:

    Clearly, colonial Spanish American mining was industrial in scale, and the belief that a dramatic man-made impact on the environment only began in the 18th century is a Euro-centric construct.
