Abraham Lincoln initially wanted to free slaves from the places where Confederacy resided but had to rethink his decision because that would be unfair to the African Americans who were still slaves. Because of the president’s quick thinking and smart planning such came out of the whole ordeal. Things were getting out of hand and were going from bad to worse therefore something had to be done to prevent utter chaos so the president had to step up because it was his duty to lead the United States in the right direction. Drafting the Emancipation Proclamation was an idea that was a last resort because Lincoln did not want to lose the war. As the Emancipation Proclamation abolished slavery along the way more soldiers were added to the President’s army which he was the commander in chief of which would lead to victory.
In Robinsons letter to the president he addressed how the world just keeps saying be patient and then wouldn’t do anything, he called out the president on how he isn’t helping everyone, he is hurting everyone. (Robinson, letter) and (Wilson,web). Robinson’s impact on society portrayed his legacy as a great one and made people realize that he was a hero, but also that everyone can be a hero. Jackie Robinson truly has left an impact as the man who broke the color barrier. Withstanding all hate that was thrown at him and doing it while keeping a smile on his face and inspiring others.
This means that you will do what is right no matter what. Heros who have righteousness fight for the right cause and will not act evil. Righteousness is a key property you must have to be a good hero. An example of righteousness is when Lebowitz defended the Scottsboro boys even though he knew he was going to be hated very much in the south. Another example is President Kennedy because he did everything he could to make blacks equal.
had been treated poorly all his life because of his skin, he speaks out against the wrongdoing and racism. His purpose is to convince people that racism has bad effects on victims and to make the idea more prevalent. While he’s speaking, he brings up a few emotional situations like, “With this faith we will be able to work together, to struggle together, to go to jail together, to stand up for freedom together, knowing we will be free one day.” MLK Jr.’s use of vocabulary conveys his emotion towards the topic and involves listeners using pathos. Because MLK Jr. knew racism was an issue in his time, he speaks out against it. The purpose of the speech was to revolutionize the idea that racism is okay and make people’s mind change.
Ulysses S Grant and Abraham Lincoln could sit next to each other because they both believed in the justice to protect the order of the Union. Lincoln liked Grant for his success in battles which his other generals could not accomplish. Abraham Lincoln would be able to sit next to Harriet Tubman because she was an abolitionist activist who fought for the rights for African Americans and Lincoln wanted them to be free. Harriet Tubman and Fredrick Douglas because they both wanted slavery to abolished and were slave back then. Fredrick Douglas and John Brown could sit next to each other because they both wanted to abolish slavery and they ended up using different methods, but they wanted slaves to be free in the south.
The Civil Rights era was a time of great turmoil and injustice for African Americans, however, Martin Luther King brought forth a tremendous amount of change through his “Letter from Birmingham Jail” and his “I Have a Dream Speech”. Both documents demanded that the unjust treatment of African Americans had to change, as well heavily urged African Americans to remain peaceful and not resort to violence. King’s “Letter from Birmingham Jail” was an excellent example for demanding change since the primary message of King’s “Letter from Birmingham Jail” was calling forth white moderates along with the church to no longer sit on the sidelines and allow the injustices on African Americans to continue any further. The “Letter from Birmingham Jail” focused on discussing the morality of the unjust laws created, and differentiates between man-made law and moral law. This was specifically done to show white moderates that civil disobedience was not entirely a negative thing.
Kaepernick has the “right to protest what he says is a flag “for a country that oppresses black people and people of colour.”” I support Kaepernick’s movement because of what they stand for, but not how he created his movement. Kaepernick is still an American, he should be respectful towards the country, the anthem that represents the country 's history, part of the culture. Although I believe that Kaepernick was wrong to do so by sitting during the American anthem, I support his movement because there is the issue of inequality in America. Kaepernick has experienced it
Dr. King displayed great courage and temperance in his fight for a better life, not only for his family but, for all people who suffered discrimination because of the color of their skin. Dr. King’s campaign was a non-violent movement on his part even though his adversary’s acts were not. His persistence, and peace marches along with his inspiring speeches, ultimately produced an awareness that although still not perfect continues on today. Unfortunately, Dr. King was murdered because someone else could not practice a “mean” of their
When I was a boy I used to see my father come home from a long day of work. Although exhausted, he used to have a feeling of satisfaction. He loved his profession: being a doctor. It was right then that I made up my mind that I would become a doctor like my father. I was blessed by having parents who were both well-known doctors in United Arab Emirates, as they guided me to get admission into one of the most prestigious medical schools of Pakistan.
He believed that chance could occur through non- violation, and so affirmed the Southern Christian Leadership Conference’s motto: “To save the soul of America”. This affirmation gave clear evidence that many other people were putting effort to make changes. On top of that, Martin Luther King also represents the importance of non-violence by giving his personal experience. His claim of understanding the others’ feelings was inspiring, and therefore gave a strong impact to the audience. “For the sake of those boys, for the sake of this government, for the sake of the hundreds of thousands trembling under our violence.” This indicates the increasing importance of the boys, government, and many other people who are in fear.
