inheritance means it's the practice of passing of property, titles, debts, rights and obligations upon the death of an individual.
1. in my own words inheritance means you get something passed on to you, whether is a language or money, you can inherit a certain kind of speech from a family member you're around a lot, or you can get money from a family member that has passed on.
2. Junior inherited his looks from his parents
3. Frederick Douglass inherited a slave life from a recent slave (family member)
4. I inherited better feelings about other types of people, if you're a slave, a white or an Indian.
