Milk’s main objective is to explain to the gay community that there is hope because the winds of change is on horizon, and through his use of rhetorical devices he is able to prove this. Similarly, Mr. King is also able to use rhetorical devices to argue over the distaste of injustice he and his people have been forced to endure, and how they will take no more. Both Mr. Milk and Dr. King uses many different ways to appeal to their audiences, one main way is figure of speech. One example we see from Mr. Milk where is comparing the lack of hope the homosexuals have for their future to struggles that all minority races have come to know such as unemployment and foreign language.
On “October 14, 2003”(Steve Bartman Incident-Wikipedia), Steve Bartman made a mistake that would change his life for good. Alex Gibney made a documentary called “Catching Hell” to explain how one man deserves an apologize from “40,000” (“Catching Hell”) Cub fans for an act that was only human. Many people think Steve Bartman needs to apologize for what he did to the Cubs and their fans, but Alex Gibney has disagreed with the fans.
Everyone was getting hurt and these wealthy officials kept their hands clean from miles away. They used the idea of patriotism for the fatherland to get people to enlist for the war. Patriotism, in no way, is a bad thing, however, when one is guilt tripped into believing that their fear of dying in war is actually a lack of devotion to their country, it becomes entirely wrong. One must understand that the majority of the soldiers fighting in World War I had no dispute with the other side and they had only joined, to protect the country they had grown up in and learned to love. These citizens should have been shown the reality because, painful or not, the soldiers who died on the battlefield a decade ago, deserved to know what they were signing up
According to AJC, the United States Code says that other than people from the military, people should stand for the flag. However, it only says should, not must, so not standing for the flag is valid. The Ex-President Obama supported Colin and addressed on labor day about Colin’s protest. (Vox News) He declared, "But I don 't doubt his sincerity, based on what I 've heard.
Equally important, he never frowned upon them, or disgraced their ways. While speaking to his children, Atticus conveys this, “Scout, I couldn’t go to church and worship God if I didn’t try to help that man” (Lee 139). As a result, he displays to his children that he is not a coward and will not back away from a challenge, even if it means his reputation may taper as the trial advances. Correspondingly, the African American populous makes known that they are appreciative of Atticus’s intentions to free Tom of his accusation. During the trial, the members of the African American public watched Atticus vividly defend their friend as if color was no
In the book A Prayer for Owen Meany by John Irving, my favorite character is Owen Meany. I admire the way he cares about his friends and is willing to do anything for them. He is concerned about John coming to Vietnam. To avoid this, Owen cuts off John’s finger so he cannot go into the war. This would be difficult, but he loves John and wants to protect him.
….”Cause while we may have big friend lists So many of us are friendless All alone Cause friendships are more broken than the screens on our very phones”..... These lyrics are from a man named Prince Ea, to say he has inspiration is an understatement, because i 'm not sure how his motivation, determination, and passion is so strong. Prince Ea is speaking not only for us, but for future generations to come. He is trying to get through to not just teen boys and girls, but he is trying to speak up to everyone, and for some who feel his determination to spread the word.
One way that Atticus illustrates courage is in his defence of Tom Robinson during the sexuall asult trial. He chooses to defend Tom an african american man he believes is innocent. In the novel Atticus is courageous in the sense that he doesn’t care what others think of him. He is repeatedly called a “negro lover” and looked down on by the white community. Although he is being harassed he doesn’t care,and continues to defend Tom Robinson.
Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter astonished many Americans when he boldly stated, “I believe Jesus would approve gay marriage.” Same-sex marriage supporters swarmed the comment sections on news articles commending the former president on his open mindedness. In an article titled “What would Jesus say about same-sex marriage?” Randy Balmer expands on President Carter’s statement and argues that Christians should support gay marriage because Christians “support” other sins, because Jesus said nothing forbiding homosexuality in the Bible, and because Jesus required people to never judge others. However, Balmer uses flawed logic as he inaccurately researches Jesus’s teachings and wrongly assumes all Christians interpret the teachings of Jesus.
He was a well known person in Elie’s community who had almost been captured by the Nazi’s, but luckily escaped. Moshe’s love for God changes and “[he] struggles desperately to believe that God is perpetually at work, even during the massacre of which he was nearly a victim” (Nurick, “Identity” paragraph 1). Moshe was once a man with a strong faith in God, but after seeing many awful things happen such as, people being killed and tortured and babies getting thrown in the air to be used as targets, he struggles to believe in God. He often pondered whether God was real, and if he was, why would he let such awful things happen to innocent people? It didn’t make sense.
I learned this lesson the hard way, even as a Christian involved in ministry,” said Idleman in the article. Idleman said he could have had only a couple of beers on special occasions, but it had always slipped back into addiction. What he viewed as a simple “liberty” had awakened a sleeping addiction, he explained. In light of the current culture which involves a lot of alcohol, Pastor Idleman expressed alarm at the tendency of Christian leaders to also go with the trend.
The quote does not seem to have much relationships with the song, but it seems like Public Enemy appreciates the quote. It seems like they wanted to say “you people could fight for equality for yourselves [African Americans] yet you refuse to do so.” Similarly, from the music video which accompanies the song, De La Soul – Me, Myself and I [Official Video], Prince Paul states, “If you take three glasses of water and put food coloring in them, you have many different colors, but it’s still the same old water” (“De La Soul – Me, Myself and I [Official Video]”). Instead of “water” and “food coloring,” Prince Paul was referencing “hip-hop” and its various appearance of hip-hop artists. He was saying that although De La Soul conveyed
Ali became one of the most hated people in the United States of America for protesting going to Vietnam. He was called to the courts to have the issue solved. Many people were surprised and upset that he did not want to fight for the country he was born, but the people did not have a real clue of why Ali was protesting the Vietnam War. Colin Kaepernick, with all of the recent killings of African-Americans in the United States, decided to sit during the National Anthem. He did this for the first two preseason games unnoticed.
John Lewis has been the U.S. representative for Georgia since 1987, but that is not where his political career began. In the series, March, by John Lewis, it takes the reader back to the very beginning of Lewis’ life where he lived on a chicken farm in Alabama. He then begins fighting for civil rights as a young man and was even one of the famous speakers in Selma. Before he could get to where he is now, John Lewis had to go through a series of events that would change his perspective on life. Lewis has had many turning points throughout his civil rights journey, but there are four specific moments that helped him grow into the man that many people of color looked up to in hope of change.
Both stories, well, one is a article and the other is a poem. Both of them talk about bullying, except the article I read is about cyberbullying and the ”Watch Out for the Claws” is just bullying in school and the poem is explaining the personalities of a bully. The poem uses cats as their examples of bullies, but the article uses real people and their stories of what happened to them when they were cyberbullied. Another similar thing is that both of them are in second person. The article is about some countries banning Facebook, because of the crimes of people
