Martin Luther King, Jr once had said,” I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great of a burden to bear.” You can say that MLK is one of the best known advocates to use unconditional love and nonviolence instead of bloodshed to deal with a conflict, and be successful with the manner. During his days he was one of the most loved and hated men for the things he did for trying to reach equality, yet throughout his time of living it's obvious that he fought for human rights and balance. Even though some people say he caused to many problems, in that day of society, MLK’s work helped us to have what we have today. Which would be equality and balance between the races.
In PBS’ “Stickup Kid”, a man named Alonza Thomas was threatened with a gun by a man and was ordered to rob a store when he was trying to go back home. Alonza tried and failed to rob the store and was charged as an adult and given 13 years of jail time. This evidence shows how unfairly he was charged for a crime he was forced to do. Alonza had no choice but to commit the crime because the man put him into a position between life and death and Alonza had no choice but to save his own life.

The reason my husband asked me about it was, years later after I had begun to date and finally married, I saw a news story about two robbers arrested not far from where we live. The report mentioned it was two men, dressed in black, who had robbed a home and tried to kill one of the owners. The reporter said the third man, who had worn a skull mask over his face, had never been caught. I had started panicking at this, and eventually told my husband all about what had happened. He knew my brother had died, and that it had been during an attempted robbery, but not much else.

Literacy Narrative Everything 's an argument. When unarmed, 17 year old Trayvon Martin was shot and killed by a neighborhood watch for looking suspicious with skittles in his pocket; similarly, when unarmed, 18 year old Michael Brown was shot and killed by a police officer for stealing a pack of cigars, and when other countless unarmed black people have been shot and killed in America, the argument has been whether race affected these situations.
