Malcolm X begins breaking down the bridge between Black and White America at the beginning of the speech, phrasing his sentences in such a way as to convince his audience of the fact that your place of residence does not determine who you are, and therefore blacks shouldn't identify with White America. Though blacks are considered "citizens" of the United States, Malcolm X asserts "Everything that came out of Europe, every blue-eyed thing, is already an American. As long as you and I have been over here, we aren't Americans yet." Malcolm X continuously refers back to the concept for the rest of his speech, stating that blacks are not Americans rather, they are just Africans. He begins the sentence with "Everything that came out of Europe," creating the impression that absolutely everybody from Europe was accepted into American society, including low class criminals and other people of such low moral character, while all blacks, even highly educated individuals such as MLK, Jr. are still looked down upon in society this statement fuels the already passionate and strong hatred of his black audience.
Malcom X was not afraid to use violence as a tactic and based his actions on a "by any means necessary" foundation. Through an analysis of two famous speeches written and spoken by both radicals, it is clear that in the future they envision two very distinctive American cultures. For example, in his speech "The Ballot or the Bullet", (1964) Malcolm X criticizes the actions taken by the white population, abstaining from any efforts to appeal to their culture; in which his approach comes across very separatist. "I'm not an American. I'm one of the 22 million Black people who are the victims of
King wanted all the races to come together for the hatred and violence to be put to an end. He expressed his message powerfully and passionately. On the other hand, Malcolm X wanted African-Americans to build a world for themselves controlled by only them and that only addressed the desires and needs that were important. In addition Malcolm X showed that he didn’t believe in an integrated society, he was known as an extremist. Malcolm X clearly stated and explained that the Africans didn’t decide to come to America but rather that they were forced and brought against their will.
earA Rhetorical look at Pearl Harbor Address to the Nation Given by Franklin Delano Roosevelt David Thayer English 112 This speech was in relations to the horrible and reprehensive attack on Midway. It was the start of the Unites States in World War II (WWII). The influence this speech had on the American people was of great importance to the acceptance of our entrance to the war. It showed that by allowing the people to know the gravity of this incident it would get their approval. President Roosevelt used Pathos and Logos to attract the nation to the idea that if we did not act swiftly with force we would get attacked again and many more innocent lives would be taken.
Malcolm X goes on to say that, “They don’t hang you because you’re a Baptist; they hang you cause you’re black. They don’t attack me cause I’m a Muslim; they attack me cause I’m black” (Malcolm X 3). This is an appeal through pathos; he is trying to connect with his audience by getting them to feel strong emotions about how they are treated by other races. But, perhaps more memorable, is the anaphora that truly helps to solidify the positive message to his audience. By repeating the same line twice but
Are people born good or bad? Michael Caballero Although Hobbes was right about nature of people that is evil he was wrong about government having absolute power, in the other hand Locke was right about power corrupts the people but wrong about people being born with a clean slate. For example Adolf Hitler, he was the worst because he killed a lot of innocent Jews. Hobbes thought that the world was evil because he lived during a war and saw stuff that nobody would want to see. Ayatollah Khomeini one of the 20th century's most ruthless leaders.
When Tom was accused of rape, this was the most racist point in the book to me. The people of Maycomb automatically labeled him as guilty. If I were in his position I would have wanted to fight back. Atticus Finch, a local lawyer and one of the main characters, is appointed as Tom’s lawyer. He is almost completely shunned from the town because he is trying to help a black man accused of rape.
To hose them in the middle of the street during peaceful protests and to burn crosses in their yards was the most patriotic thing that could be done. If America was the team in the race wars then the Klu Klux Klan was their quarter back. It's interesting that even farther back the winds of equality began to blow concerning the Civil War, the bloodiest battle that America has ever seen. Whole families wiped out in the name of the South or the name of freedom. Even then it took several more years for the African Americans to experience what those people in the North died for during that time.
These ideals later served as the foundation for Black Nationalism and the Back Power movements. His approval of violence and militant stance against white society caused the U.S. Government to name him “the most dangerous man in America” (Mamiya, 2013). As a result the Federal Bureau of Investigation (F.B.I.) and the Central Intelligence Agency (C.I.A.) actively surveilled him until the time of his death.
ADJUSTMENT AND STEREOTYPES AGAINST JEWISH IMMIGRANTS 1 Insight on Hardships of Jewish Immigrants Matt Fischetti Union County College Professor Cohen; Minorities in America, Sociology 206 ADJUSTMENT AND STEREOTYPES AGAINST JEWISH IMMIGRANTS 2 In the late 1930’s and early 1940’s the world was falling into despair and chaos. Some European Countries, especially Germany were staging a genocide of an entire ethnicity. At the helm of all these horrific actions was a man named Adolph Hitler. He still could not get over the mortifying truth behind the World War I. He tried so desparately to create a total blonde-haired, blue eyed poplation and anyone who wasn’t of that demographic was to be executed.
