The beginning of the speech went fairly well as he was honoring Washington, however, he ended up ridiculing Congress. President Johnson usually spoke harshly about Congress and his mouth had the tendency to get him in trouble. In his speech, Johnson said, “I find men I care not by what name you call them…who still stand opposed to the restoration of the Union of these States.” He later would call out Thaddeus Stevens, Charles Sumner, and Wendell Phillips for plotting his assassination. In his speech, Johnson said, “I say that I have no doubt the intention was to incite assassination, and so get out of the way the obstacle from place and power.” Thaddeus Stevens and the radical Republicans viewed Johnson’s speech as a declaration of war. Andrew Johnson was a man who was not afraid to speak out against Congress.

King Kunta: The Rise of a Kid That Had Nothing The song “King Kunta” by rapper Kendrick Lamar is very catchy song about Kendrick’s rise to the top of the rap game and the his resistance to selling out like many rappers do. He really uses ethos strongly in this song to get people to listen to what he is saying and to get his message across to those people. His audience is mainly young people between the ages of 15 and 30, but his music reaches a very wide spread community of people. The name of the song, “King Kunta”, is an oxymoron - Kendrick thinks he is still being oppressed like a slave, while still being dominant and rich like a king. It contrasts the lowest and the highest levels of society.
In “Black Spiderman,” Logic explains the causes of these stereotypes when he says “[e]verybody from my hood, everybody know I’m good/ Sometimes I’m just misunderstood/ but that’s just the uneducated that never related” (Logic). The cause of the issues of being judged by the public is due to the misconception of a few people; people must get to know each other and understand one another’s character before creating any judgments and contributing to stereotypes. People who create such harsh judgments have never tried to relate to other people and to see the world in a new perspective. Logic states that people who do know him understand the good side of him and the ones who have never tried to make amends with Logic often created poor understandings. Then, Logic provides the effect of these horrible actions; these effects mainly include the victim realizing there is no hope or one to provide moral support.

The album released over 20 years ago while I was only three months

But one genre in music has created an impact in our history, especially the American history for it paved way to the Civil Rights movement.

Long Island, New York has cultivated many hip-hop talents in creating masterpieces of hip-hop songs. For example, rap crew Public Enemy’s Fight the power, hip-hop trio De La Soul’s Me, Myself and I, and Eric B and Rakim’s Follow the Leader.

Fight the Power was produced by Public Enemy’s production team The Bomb Squad, and Me, Myself and I was produced by De La Soul and Prince Paul. Although two songs were both released in 1989, they offered different insights for listeners.
People even said I was a weak and mediocre president because I did not want America to go to war, but of course things end up diffrently than as planned. Imperialism can not be seen as a horrible thing all the time. These countries often do get protection from us, if ever threaten.
