In Bryan Stevenson’s “Just Mercy,” there is an underlying sense of hope that is seen in spurts through the constant stories of injustice and unfairness that take place. Throughout the book there are multiple people that are wrongly condemned and have to suffer on the dreaded death row. All of the inmates of the row know they will eventually be executed, but only a select few stay positive and give the reader a sense of hope in such a negative situation. Mr. Jenkins is one of those men. The mentally ill man was in and out of foster care as a child, and his terrible experiences lead to more serious brain damage.
Do you know how your Miranda Rights help you in court. It lets people try to prove they didn 't do the crime. It tells people that they have the right to remain silent because everything they say can and will be used against them in the court of law so when people are being questioned they need a lawyer to tell the police that they are asking questions that person does not want to answer. It will appoint people an attorney if they cannot afford one. It helps give people who are innocent but is also the prime suspect a fair trial and time to try to prove they are innocent.

Unlike other contemporary novels coupling slavery and racism, ‘A Mercy’ of Toni Morrison (2008) depicts the situation when slavery is deprived of its racial situation. In other words, by separating race from slavery, the novel gives audience a chance to see “what it might have been like to be a slave but without being raced” (Neary, 2008); and a chance to wonder whether it is the color itself or the colonial society dominated by patriarchal and imperial powers the reason for slavery in the final decade of the seventeenth century.

In the poem, Paul Laurence Dunbar employs the rhetorical device of rhyme structure to contrast the bondage of individual sorrow with the liberation of action. Although the speaker does not claim divine authority, the poem’s orator possesses a definitive tone, bolstering the argument and beckoning the audience. The first lines of the initial stanza, “I am no priest of crooks nor creeds / For human wants and human needs / are more to me than prophets’ deeds,” display Dunbar’s use of rhyme structure to connect a single idea. Dunbar emphasizes the deeds of a prophet, a religious figure chosen by God to interpret His Will, to perhaps convey that time spent discerning the Will of God causes individuals to lose sight of the wants and needs around them.
