MLK advocated for civil disobedience and positive tensions within a community to create a basis for negotiation. Socially he wanted people to be able to communicate their opinions and views across without coming off as a physical or violent threat to the public. He believed in peaceful protesting and boycotts which acknowledged the fact that there were also white Americans who fought and marched right along them for the same cause. Unlike MLK, Malcolm’s view was quite different in contrast because he believed that one should fight fire with fire, which only burns both parties. His teaching could not be as effective because he neglected the influence the white members would have on the movement, by resenting them as a race, therefore handicapping his popularity and likelihood of success within the various white communities.
Moreover, Kings intellect and analytical mind allowed him to choose the best cities to demonstrate in. Choosing the Birmingham for the campaign in 1963, King knew his peaceful protesting would be met with violent outbursts in the largely racist city. This method demonstrated the need for equality and gained a lot of support for dealing with the violence in such a way. However, despite organising or showing up as a face for these marches, King would be nowhere if no one came with him to march. One factor that is undeniably important towards the passing of the civil rights act is the black Americans themselves.
Marin Luther King argued that african americans would not use violence as a method of equality. Martin felt that if the african americans reused their products through boycotting the whites would come to a realization and began to consider equality. In Document E, Martin Luther King also states "There is nothing quite to effective as a refusal to cooperate economically with the business of people who continue to do evil in our communities." Martin Luther King is stating that believing in and practicing nonviolence is a more productive way than fighting violence with violence. Martin Luther King has a more effective cause of equality for African Americans of color because MARTIN LUTHER KING felt that violence is NOT an answer to solve other
Me: Mr. Atticus, how did you stand up to the pressure of defending a black man when the town was against that action? Atticus: I stood up for what I believed in and yes it was intimidating but this town has to understand that we are all human beings. Men are created equal, black people do the exact same things as we do but we choose to find the littlest indifferences and judge them. What if it was the other way around and we white people were treated to same way as we treat black people? We need to change our way of thinking and how we presume others.
Martin Luther King’s dream for the future contains the nation to rise up as one and fight for the equality and acceptance of all individuals, no matter the label given to them by humanity. Martin’s dream for the future certainly outlines; but doesn’t just manifest in the idea of equality between black’s and white’s but to a further extent to which every single human is equal in every sense – age, gender, and race. It contains the Negro children of the world nurturing into a new humanity, which no longer “strips them of their selfhood and robs them of their dignity”. He dreams that one day, people will be acknowledged by the contentment of their personality rather than just there appearance, that everyone will be close enough to consider each other family “for little black boys and little black girls to be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls as sisters and brothers” 2. Evaluate the significance of King’s dream for all people including New Zealanders.
In his concessions to white Americans, in the Atlanta Compromise, Washington surprised many blacks. He painted a picture of the black man as a loyal servant ready to work arduously for white employers. He urged blacks to have patience and to gain self-respect through material progress. “No race that has anything to contribute to the markets of the world is long in any degree ostracized” he stated. Washington recognized the resistance that white America instinctively felt toward any form of radical racial reforms.
One of the most important things to analyze is the speech objective. As a notable civil rights leader, King’s main objective was to motivate his followers, mainly civil rights activists. His objective was to motivate them to continue their strenuous civil rights work and motivate them to overcome the seemingly unchangeable conditions that they were dealing with. The primary message being delivered was that Blacks in America were not being treated fairly and that they were going to continue to push for justice until it was achieved. He gives examples, such as the fact that most Blacks in the Deep South were still not able to vote and that racial violence was still occurring throughout the Nation.
Art is good because This pathos and ethos made people, no matter the North or the South, to feel that they are in unity. Both sides were suffering the same war and urged to end it, while they shared a same religion. God plays an important role to connect the people together, which enhances Lincoln’s credibility in his speech besides his position as a president and occasion of this speech. Lincoln ended his speech by claiming that they would “strive on to finish the work we are in, to bind up the nation's wounds, to care for him who shall have borne the battle and for his widow and his orphan, to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace among ourselves and with all nations” (Wilhoit 138). This pathos describes how Lincoln would care for his people and how he would put the task of helping the people suffering from the war first, serving as a strong pathos since it is not only emotionally affecting his people, but also encouraging and giving them hope.
Racism is a huge problem for the society because it judges people on the basis of the way they look or assumptions that they might make about people from different cultures. Martin was a smart student graduating from his school to more house College at the age of fifteen. Three years later he graduated with a degree in sociology and entered the Christian ministry because he thought this would give him a base from which to effect social change. He wanted to change the rights for black male/females .He also wanted to make sure they have the same rights as everyone
Washington preferred a gradual incline of black involvement and acceptance, whereas DuBois preferred immediate direct action. DuBois tried to get African Americans to be involved in politics for this would be the only way their freedoms would be maintained and that could gain influence in society. Carter Woodson states that without political involvement, they would “lose ground in the basic things of life,” (Doc I). DuBois says that the original democratic system does not exist anymore; a caste system replaced it with the white men on top, who try to diminish the civil liberties of those below them, the blacks (Doc F). Dubois’s solution is that African Americans must constantly fight and argue for what they desire in order to ever gain their rights (Doc E).
