It even persuaded the Roman catholic Bishop Joseph Aloysius Durick. Originally a conformist cleric, Bishop Durick, along with his seven colleagues wrote the letter "A Call For Unity", calling on Martin Luther King Jr. and his "outsiders" to go home during the Birmingham protests of 1963 and let the courts work toward integration. King responded with his Letter from Birmingham Jail, voicing his disappointment in the white clergy, who should be "among our strongest allies". This, and a message from Vatican II, led Bishop Durick to become a strong voice for civil rights in the segregated South! He did this in the face of severe persecution by his own congregation.

In his first statement he said, “I am happy to join with you today in what will go down in history as the greatest demonstration for freedom in the history of our nation”. Martin Luther King’s speeches and demonstrations would affect a change in the audience minds and hearts. He stood up against the injustice and inspired a nation into action with his words. Martin Luther King also used a lot of religious references in his speech for example from the Bible he used quotes like “But let justice roll on like a river, righteousness like a never-failing stream!” & Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill shall be made low: and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough places plain….”.
Thomas Paine, a local pamphleteer in the pre-Revolutionary War era, wrote a convincing pamphlet to any colonists who were not already supporting the war for independence from Great Britain. In his argument, Paine uses rhetorical strategy, an emotional aspect, and divine revelation towards the citizens to create a very moving, passionate, and convincing call to arms. The first line, “These are the times that tried men 's souls,” is one of relatability and preparedness for the oncoming difficult times. Paine starts his essay off with a refutation of his argument, stating that although he wants this fight, he knows it will be tough. Paine then challenges the men’s bravery and patriotism to their country by stating the line “The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will in this crisis, shrink from the service of his country.” This statement successfully peaks the men 's interest in the passage, and takes a jab at the readers manliness and willingness to protect his own country in time of need.
He found his own voice and spoke against the evil in our society. In the end, this is not about being aware of the bullying problem. This is about finding our voice and making the decision to stop it. I challenge every individual to practice speaking up for the issues they care about and inspire others to do the same. “I say to you today, my friends, though, even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream.” This is the right time to make King’s dream come true.
When the identity of the horseman was revealed, my first reaction was surprised because I realize that Druse kills his own father and I understood why every kinds of war are destructive for family relationships. I realize also the significance of the duty for a soldier because if Druse didn’t kill his father, he can be considered as a criminal. 9.

Despite their disagreements, ultimately, Martin and Malcolm both aimed for freedom and equal rights in America but their beliefs, methods, and deliveries were different. “Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.” As a preacher of nonviolence and leader of peace, Martin Luther King Jr wanted blacks to unite against racism through a completely civil manner. After growing up in a middle class family and following the christian faith, Martin became a minister and eventually a powerful figure during the Civil Rights movement. Influenced by the philosophies of Ghandi and Henery David Thoreau, Martin was a strong activist for achieving equality through nonviolent methods.
Martin Luther King Jr. effectively crafted his counter-argument by first directly addressing his audience, the clergymen, and then using pathos, ethos, and logos to refute his opponent’s statements and present his own perspective. After stating the general purpose of his letter, King specifically addressed the clergymen to set up for his logical counterargument. King effectively makes use of pathos, or to appeal to the emotions of his audiences, throughout his letter. when you have seen vicious mobs lynch your mothers and fathers at will and drown your sisters and brothers at whim; when you have seen hate filled policemen curse, kick and even kill your black brothers and sisters; when you see the vast majority of your twenty million brothers smothering in an airtight cage of poverty in the midst of an affluent society; when you suddenly find your tongue twisted and your speech stammering as you seek to explain to your six year old daughter why she can’t go to the public amusement park that has just been advertised on television, and see tears welling up in her eyes when she is told that Funtown is closed to colored children, and see ominous clouds of inferiority beginning to form in her little mental sky, and see her beginning to distort her personality by developing an unconscious bitterness toward white people; when you have to concoct an answer for a five-year-old son who is asking: “Daddy, why do white people treat colored people so mean? ” King demonstrates his ability
They do not recognize that they are allowing their own domination to take place because they want the best for their children and rightfully so. Once their children attend the school that teaches the British curriculum, they will also reproduce these hegemonic ideologies. As seen in the previous example, race plays a major role in why these parents prefer the British curriculum over the Nigerian curriculum. The white man’s invention will always be seen as remarkable compared to the black man’s invention. Hence, race and identity work together to reproduce hegemonic
“ I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: We hold these truths to be self evident: that all men are created equal.” Dr. King also states that one day he would like his children to be free as whites were. “ I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but the content of their character.” Dr. King uses his own words to describe what he wants the nation to look like in the future. “ I have a dream that one day, down in Alabama, with its vicious racists, with its governor having his lips dripping with the words of interposition and nullification; one day right there in Alabama, little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls as sisters and brothers.” In the Gettysburg Address Lincoln talks about how people fought the war and how people should honor their soldiers. Lincoln states, “We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live.” What he says means that the soldiers lost their lives to give us freedom. Lincoln says, “The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here.” He didn 't know if people would remember what Lincoln said on November 19, 1863 but he said don 't forget that the soldiers lost their lives.
