Obama uses this to talk about the college that was built to help support and make young, black men to succeed in their dreams. The most effective rhetorical appeal is pathos which is used to persuade all the young men, who still has a heart as pure one 's child, to pursue and never give up on their dreams, which America was built on golden ideas. This can be seen when Obama says, “. .but his education at Morehouse helped to forge the intellect, the discipline, then compassion…”(Obama 3). This is a good rhetorical appeal because everyone knows about Martin Luther King Jr., Obama connects with us emotionally by using the fact that Dr. King enrolled into this college at the age of 15, he used his passion to study harder, and with the help of his college, Martin Luther King Jr. is able to thrive towards his dreams.

Even though we live in a world where everyone seems to be involved with charity, and helping others, there are many ways in which we try to solve problems using ineffective solutions. In the case of Robert Peace, his mother Jackie and many others believed that sending him to such a distinguished school like Yale, would insure him of becoming a successful man. What they didn’t realize, was how Rob growing up poverty stricken, with an absent father, and in a drug infested neighborhood, would play a huge role in his development. Since he grew up with these experiences, they laid out the pattern for him to follow into a future of drug dealing, because you can’t expect a person’s history to be completely altered by sending him to an Ivy League School.
