Dreams are powerful things that are usually the driving force for our words and actions. Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech and Old Major’s speech in chapter one of Animal Farm by George Orwell both relay a message and express a problem they wish to solve. The application of rhetorical appeals, like pathos, ethos, and logos were utilized to influence their audience. Although King believed in peaceful rebellion and Old Major promoted violence as an answer, both used rhetorical appeals to notify their audience about the problems of injustice in their society. The injustice that King described was the discrimination and segregation of colored people.
In a revolution, he knew it would be hard to gain followers without bloodshed. Malcolm persistently worked along side Martin Luther King Junior. Although Malcolm and Martin had very many different views on the issues they were facing, they both had one thing in common. They both wanted equality between the races. In some people's eyes, Malcolm may seem the ignorant between the two great leaders.
By this time, slavery is a very hotly debated issue in America, even eventually leading to the Civil War. Thoreau obviously takes the position against slavery and tries to use his writing to try and convince the citizens of America to stand up against slavery and the laws that protect it. Thoreau often writes of the injustice that the government displays towards its people. For example, Thoreau writes, “Why does it not encourage its citizens to be on the alert to point out its faults, and do better than it would have them?” (184). Thoreau’s purpose is to convince the citizens of America to not follow the majority, but do what is felt to be morally right.
He used this to convince other people to switch for a good after life, which is an important thing to them (doc 2). This document suggests that there are options to conversion depending on the religion of the people facing conversion. Muhammad respected “People of the Book” and did not force them into their religion, but they still had to pay tribute. The conversion, though, was required because they had wars against unbelievers. I would not trust this document though, for it is one sided.
Obama and Martin Luther King Jr. are very common in many ways. They both are trying to make America a better place for all races but the only thing is, nowadays our economy is the thing that needs fixing. They both had a dream. They both were African American men. They both had a starting point and they both made history.
Sacrifice played a big role in changing the status quo during the 1950s and ‘60s. A few courageous individuals stepped up; inspiring others and putting forth their effort for the freedom of blacks, ultimately, legal segregation was ending. Without courageous people, like Martin Luther King, Rosa Parks, and, the public would have not been inspired to stand up for itself. Martin Luther King had a vision of a society in which race was not an issue in how people were treated or in how they were allowed to live their lives. While nothing is perfect or complete in the battle for civil rights, the efforts of King and those like him have, in fact, changed the country and the world, for the better, in non-violent ways.
The separating of black and white has caused many problems in society and these inequalities are still felt today. Rebellion, revolution, boycotting and even riots, have led to tensions between the two races. Additionally, desegregating schools led to a learning gap between black and white students. The Constitution states that no state can make the law that takes away the rights and privileges of citizens making them immune to it. Desegregation of public places should be allowed because it is inequitable to separate humans based on the color or pigmentation of their skin.
The juvenile minds will not only learn about other cultures, but will also get closer to their own culture. They will start developing an affection for their own culture, when they will compare and see the differences. Furthermore, human beings are always in search of better opportunities. Studying diverse cultures from a very early age, can help the upcoming youth in developing a better common culture, one that contains many different trends
In my opinion, the penalties for hate crimes should continue to be more severe than that of a regular crime because so many innocent people are injured and even killed simply because they are different. People should have the right to live in America free of fear that something will happen to them simply because they were not born a certain color, they practice a different religion or that they happen to be
These terms are used normally to ridicule people. Being called a ‘khusra’ is considered to be an insult or an abuse by people. This indicates that Transgenders are considered slightly less than human beings so the concept of equality is out of the question. However, if Pakistan is to prosper and progress then not only do the masses require apt political representation but they themselves need to
