In To Kill a Mockingbird, topics like stereotypes and inequality are mentioned in Atticus Finch’s Closing Argument. Both King and Finch create a persuasive case to overcome racism through the use of logos, ethos, and pathos. One of the first things that King and Finch use to increase the effectiveness of their speeches is logical appeals, or logos. Logos is valuable. They are facts, so they are not debatable.
I really enjoyed how it was different than other books in that it was based off of black people's perspectives in order to show just how terrible the mob attacks and struggles for freedom really were. The specific details Krugler used from the first-hand accounts to describe the events really made me understand the events much clearer than reading out of a normal history book would. He used such vivid details that I could almost picture just how treacherous the riots were. He proved his thesis very well by reinforcing the importance of the year
Plessy vs. Ferguson: The supreme court case of Plessy vs. Ferguson was the case that made segregation legal, the phrase during that time was "Separate but equal." Where the white people had nicer things than those of color. The supreme court was favored to Plessy making segregation legal. It had an impact because it sparked a movement later on which made segregation illegal by the Brown vs. Board of education
Although Eugenics did not create the apartheid regime it enabled its development; it was used as a reputable justification for the actions instilled on the “inferior” citizens. The identification and differentiation of the races ensured that racial mixing could be prevented due to the differences it established (for example as stated earlier, differences in intelligence). Furthermore, with the institutionalization of racism, it became hard for citizens of South Africa to challenge the government and its ideology, which resulted in wide spread submissive conformity from the Afrikaaner and white communities alike; the only community able to change the perception of race in South Africa due to their rank in the racial hierarchy. Although, the outcome is unsure on what would have happened in South Africa without the introduction of Eugenics, it is clear that some turmoil would have occurred; however to which extent is unsure. Finally, it can be deduced that the scientific theory of eugenics replaced colonial ideologies in South Africa and furthermore it continued driving racial segregation throughout the formative years in the early apartheid state of South
I would certainly recommend this book to anyone interesting in learning more about what it's like on the inside of North Korea. I think this book mainly benefits from the idea that truth is stranger than fiction—not only is it a fascinating narrative, but the fact that it is someone's life makes it even more compelling. I'm positive there are many people who have a morbid curiosity about what goes on inside of North Korea's prison camps and what life there is like. This book satisfies that hunger but does so without making a spectacle of the human suffering the narrative involves. While it's certainly not The Diary of Anne Frank in terms of the personalization of a tragedy and narrator-reader intimacy, it goes much further to create an empathetic experience for the reader than, say, a Buzzfeed article on the Top Ten Most Terrifying Facts About North Korea.
The lack of assistance to these African Americans conveys how white Christian leaders were in favor of racial segregation, and had no problems with it. The letter that Dr.King wrote allows for people from anywhere around the world to understand the importance of the Civil Rights Movement, and why it was necessary for people of all races to participate in it. Martin Luther King Jr writes this letter originally because he is upset that the clergymen don’t understand why non-violent protests are being looked down on, and he clarifies why these protests must happen for African Americans. The letter has a significant importance because it gives plenty of information about that time period. Without Civil Rights leaders such as Martin Luther King Jr, African Americans would still be separated and mistreated in unbearable
It has encouraged people in different countries to follow the non-violent path like Dr. King. In Dr. King’s “Letter from Birmingham City Jail” he successfully communicated his message by expressing his thoughts and emotions in a soft and gentle tone. One can clearly see that Dr. King is trying his best to make the letter sound as pleasing as possible when he writes “I would like to answer your statement in what I hope will be patient and reasonable terms (King, 1963).” The Author came across warm and friendly throughout the letter because he wanted to avoid any problems with the white people. Dr. King’s letter was very effective rhetorically. It makes people about how different it was for colored people back then.
voting is more important than the bullet. I think that is a really strong quote and i really like it because it has a sequences like jail or they could take you to court . That is why it is important to vote be cause we have a right to. “The ballot is stronger than the bullet.”-Abraham Lincoln. This quote means One of the reasons not to vote is some presidents are for bad stuff.
Atticus displayed courage in court when he was the only one defending/ controverting for Tom Robinson. Atticus knew he would receive animosity for taking the case, but followed through with it anyway because it was the proper thing to do. Another example of where intrepidity/ determination was found was when
On page 285 King says, “Supreme Court 's decision of 1954 outlawing segregation in the public schools, at first glance it may seem rather paradoxical for us consciously to break laws” King’s allusion reinforces the facts of his argument by directing the critical event of the decision made in 1954. It shows that the decisions that are being made are not helping the problem that Birmingham has, it is only making the segregation problems worse. It’s efficient because it shows that the courts have been making laws that are what the called just but, in reality, they are anything, but just they are unjust laws that shouldn’t be
Perhaps the best way to do this would be to solely base bails off of risk assessments. By using the basis of risk for bails, then the system improves as it no longer disproportionately discriminates against people from low income backgrounds. Moreover this approach is within the limits of the Constitution as the basis of dangerous is not per se unconstitutional according to the precedents set forth by United States v. Salerno ("Bail"). Ultimately, as shown the modern American bail system fails to protect the constitutional rights of the accused. By setting overly high bail amounts, judges often discriminate against people who are of lesser financial status since they do not have the ability to pay.
The following passage is from the Letter from Birmingham Jail written by Doctor Martin Luther King Jr. is as follows This passage impresses me through the choice of words and how they make one think. When Doctor King explains that this was not a random act but an act of change due the lack of effort on the city. There are no wasted or trivial words each word has purpose in this passage if you close your eyes you may hear Socrates. The other impressive feat is not once did you ever feel a since of anger even though this is a difficult time for Doctor King. The feeling was of a sense of worry that if things do not change what will happen.
Hawthorne uses various elements including; Imagery, comparison, and an extended metaphor. He describes how the government has the same qualities as the eagle and compare them by pointing out strengths and weaknesses, as well as flaws. He also uses an extended metaphor, making the government become the eagle. By using these elements of text, his attitude towards the government is raw and makes the government sound “unsheltering.” In this passage from “The Custom House,” Hawthorne explains how much better Salem Port was before being “scorned” with other ports. The only positive description given to the port is its “granite” steps, but even there, contradicts the positivity by saying that the grass has grown in between the steps because of no
These are fabulous steps, however they are not a panacea. More must be done to execute new advancements in policing and different parts of the equity framework that will enhance police responsibility and diminish the extent to which the harshest parts of criminal equity fall excessively on groups of shading. The United States needs to grasp a more brilliant way to deal with criminal equity that perceives that the affinity to concentrate on race is not the response to make safe groups. The inability to guarantee that our legal and legitimate frameworks treat all Americans just as has isolated an excess of our groups. We must offer voice to the honest to goodness and across the board worries about trust in the criminal equity process.
Preclearance was a constitutional response to voter discrimination, but it was also unconstitutional to apply it to states based on past issues (Sensenbrenner, 2016). Thus, the law’s strongest protections have been rendered meaningless. Clearly they never heard of Tocqueville’s tyranny of the majority. The tyranny of the majority is when a dominant group uses its control of the government to abuse the rights of minority groups (Magstadt, p.78, 2015). Executing laws that place restrictions on minorities sounds all too familiar.
