In document “M” Malcolm X states how the government sends one African American student to school. Although, if violence takes place all African American students would be able to go to school.

I think the main reason that the reason the civil rights conflict started was because of the Civil rights law. the law made it so someone 's public establishment could not prohibit someone of a specific origin or religion from entering. Another reason i think this conflict started was because of MLK standing up for what he believed in. He thought that blacks were not treated fairly and he wanted to make a difference, through peaceful speeches and marches such as the Selma march and the I have a dream speech. Another reason this happened was the tension built up from blacks not feeling fairly treated but not being able to do anything about it.
The abolitionists knew that it was not right to hold anyone, no matter what color, size, social and or intellectual level, against his or her will.

Although the BBP was influenced by Malcom X, they developed ideas of their own. The BBP was welcoming to white activist groups like Students for a Democratic Society, much like MLK was. They believed that revolutionaries should stand together for what they believe is right and break racial barriers (ancestry). Ultimately the BBP strived for equal opportunity for Black people and this was shown through their goals as a party. Originally the Black Panther Party was named the Black Panther Party for self-defense.
In The Universal Declaration of Human Rights it states in article two that regardless of the government, everyone is entitled to the same law and shouldn’t be discriminated by gender or race. The Letter from a Birmingham Jail written by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Dr. King expresses his feelings about racism using pathos and how everyone is suffering from this issue in society. On the other hand, Malala also uses pathos in her speech to the United Nation about women’s rights towards education and how their rights are taken away because of their gender.
