The entire speech is structured in a way that he can really explain how he feels He goes from point to point to express his logic and emotions towards the unfair treatment of African Americans . In Kennedy’s Civil Rights Address, he used multiple examples of inequitable situations regarding people of color expressing how “every man should be treated equally”.

The second amendment of 1789 states that all civilians of the United States of America have their constitutional right to bare arms. Now, two centuries later, we have started to finally ride into a major problem regarding this constitutional amendment, what if people use this right for their own wrong will? Mass shootings in the past two decades have grown increasingly popular occasions throughout the world. It just takes one bad apple among the group to cause a multitude of deaths, usually based on mental illness or influence by the media. This not only creates a predicament of how we can stop or reduce these acts, but how we can find the source of them.

The two (2) speeches of Malcolm X and Savio were delivered to different types of audiences and both speeches dissimilar in pretexts and meaning. Malcolm X articulated how essential it was for African Americans to demand a resolve for the racial and discriminatory laws and social injustices in America. Government and its operatives were malevolence in its intent and obligations: they must exit to uphold racism and unfair practices.
Racism is one of the most common problem around the world back then and even now, people judges people based on their skin color and to stop racism the 35th president of the United States, John F. Kennedy has a very persuasive speech about this in June 11, 1963 followed by the event at Alabama, 2 young mens was disqualified to be the student at the University of Alabama because they were born Negro and there were a lots of cases like that in America so that’s why he give a speech about this serious problem, he wanted to stop racism before it get worse.

For example, John F. Kennedy says, “If an American, because his skin is dark, cannot eat lunch in a restaurant open to the public, if he cannot send his children to the best public

At The Lincoln Memorial Dr. King Delivered his speech “I Have A Dream”. In this speech Dr. Martin Luther King uses extensive metaphors to help the listener understand his concerns.

In August 1963 Martin Luther King electrified the American population with his extremely powerful 'I Have A Dream ' speech. This speech is extremely effective as King 's use of rhetoric demands racial justice in an unjust society. Martin Luther King use of carefully planned use of language through a wide range of techniques make 's this speech an effective one through both the oral delivery and written text. The techniques of repetition, quotations, specific examples to moments in American History and metaphors emphasize King 's main argument in this speech, where he believes ' 'America has defaulted on this promissory note insofar as its citizens of colour are concerned ' ' and he calls for the Negro community to use their voice in society
The best example of using a speech to exercise leadership is the President Lyndon B. Johnson’s Voting Rights speech. President Johnson set leadership by addressing publicly and broadcasting in TV pressure against Congress to pass the Voting Rights Act. As Professor Witherspoon explained, this speech is an example of interdependence of leadership and communication. President Johnson’s speech led to the change of African American voting rights. Our text indicates the special form of human communication when it comes to leadership to be: who you are, act, do, and how you work with others.
The people of America have been grappling with the problem of racism since the colonial times. With the development of the Civil Rights Movement, many leaders and figureheads have taken upon themselves the idea of unifying the black race and helping them gain equality in their own personal ways. Recently, the country is witnessing the rise of Malcolm X while as he works with a rather aggressive approach to get the black community their well-deserved rights. In ‘Not just an American problem, but a world problem’, a recently given speech by Malcolm X, he has openly accused the colored communities of manipulating the media with their tactics of ‘image making’ and hence, playing a very significant role in undermining the position of the black race.
Dr. Patrick Miller gave an amazing and interesting speech on the issue of the Confederate flag and monuments. The presenter went through the history of what the Confederate flag once stood for and how it became a symbol that affects minorities today. I really like how he was able to relate everything that was occurring in modern times. Something that surprised me is the vast amount of monuments that are still stand to this very day. Dr. Miller told the audience the great lengths people have gone to remove anything that is related to the Confederacy, for example, the many schools in the south were renamed after Obama since they were originally named after Confederate fugues, such as: Robert E. Lee, Stonewall Jackson, and Jefferson Davis.
Niccolo Machiavelli was a philosopher from the 15th and 16th century, using his ideas I will examine the politics and public policy of the Bush administration following 9/11. After the attacks on 9/11, Americans looked to the government for protection and the government acted by implementing new policies. Policies that would prevent another attack, expose terrorist, and make Americans feel safe again. From a Machiavellian perspective, many of these policies were justly implemented.
Building on the work of other Reconstructionist authors, Stephen Kantrowitz sets his work in a larger historiography of Reconstruction. Drawing upon letters, newspapers, pamphlets, diaries, accounts and reports of both white and black activists in Boston, Kantrowitz sets the scene for the struggle of “colored citizens” and their wide-ranging campaign of equal citizenship. Bringing a bold new perspective to one of our nation’s defining epochs, More than Freedom helps to provide a conceptual framework for examining the extent and limits of the so-called freedom achieved in 1865 and the legacy that endures today.
The Boston bombing took place on April 15th, 2013; the attack took place during the Boston marathon that normally takes place every year around the same time. I believe that the response that was given to such an event was exactly what was needed, and for the local authorities to shut down MBTA and many other things along with it was a smart move. Then calling in for restrictions on the airspace over Boston was a right decision for the safety of the citizens within the area, after that federal official Eric Holder called for all resources within the US Department of Justice. Now all these measures they decided to take were the right ones to take considering with what happened on September 11th 2001, which is something homeland security was aiming to avoid. another action that was taken so victims’ families could get information quickly was google using their person finder combining it with a disaster service under a log titled “Boston marathon explosions”.
