Braulio Sanchez 5118986 Singer’s Unrealistic Solution In the New York Times article, “The Singer Solution to World Poverty,” Peter Singer tries to persuade his audience to donate a huge chunk of their annual earnings to charities that assist those children that are impoverished overseas. Singer does this by proposing almost insane, unrealistic ideas, such as donating more than half of their income and only living off of necessities. This, of course, is preposterous because as humans we want to have luxury items such as expensive TVs and fancy cars so we can enjoy our leisure time. When looking at this article its ineffectiveness becomes clear; this article in its entirety is a giant appeal to the readers’ emotions with not enough logical or reasonable arguments to support his argument. Although Singer has strong ethos because of his status as a philosopher, his essay is ineffective due to his misuse of two certain scenarios in order to persuade people to donate by making them feel guilty & relies far too much on pathos to persuade his audience rather than focusing on logos and ethos.

A useful and accurate source of information that I used was from the History Channel’s show Gangland, and their special hour long episode specifically pertaining to the Latin Kings, as well as using documented reports from the National Gang Crime Research Center’s George W. Knox. It is widely believed that the Latin Kings were formed in the 1940’s, during World War II. As the demand for industrial workers grew, the United States government decided to ease immigration laws, and thousands upon thousands of Latino’s flocked to Chicago in need of work. This new influx of workers was not greeted warmly by large portions of the population, who saw the competition as a potential danger to their livelihood (New York Latin Kings, Gangland, History Channel). Oppressed and alone, the Latino population of Chicago banned together and created the Latin Kings, claiming that gang life was a place where “Even a common man could be a king, as long as they were a Latin king.” (Knox, Latin Kings gang profile).
After a few years Little Richard began to change his style. He went from traditional rhythm and blues to a wild madman who crashed the piano keys and screamed nonsense lyrics at a very fast paced speed. During the beginning of his transformation, his black audiences didn’t respond positively to his music. Later in 1955 Little Richard got a contract with Specialty Records, recorded “Tutti Fruitti”, and sold over 200,000 copies within a week and a half (RIT 18). “Tutti-Fruitti” was exciting enough to get played on the white stations.
On top of all of this, broadcasters, record stores, and more were catering more towards "good music", more than anything else. This was an attack on edgy Rock and Roll. But was this time period really a dark age? There were awful artists like Fabian and Pat Boone selling millions of records while some of the people they ripped off fell off the charts. I personally feel the title "Dark Age of Rock" is spot on, solely due to the teen idol phenomenom.
