In this speech pathos is extremely well present and effective. At the time of this speech, April 12, 1964, the entire nation knows who Malcolm X is. His popularity automatically provides a lot of ethos. To add to that, Malcolm X is a praised speaker amongst the African American community, and is African American himself. Since his audience is towards all Blacks and African Americans, the aforementioned traits helps build a very good amount of ethos.

He became the first African American player to ever join the Major Leagues. (History.com) This changed the world for blacks and whites and gave hope for every boy in girl in segregation. Some even say “Robinson broke the color barrier in a sport that had been segregated for more than 50 years.”(History.com) His action encouraged others to change the world just like Jackie and make the world a better place. Not only did Jackie’s actions encourage for the world to be a better place, he also helped light the way for others to join the Major Leagues.

The facts, the figures and the story of Pomona’s potential “sleeping giant” are, by now, well known in the local area. Pomona’s Latinos make up the largest minority group in the region and one the fastest growing segments of the Pomona electorate. It is important to understand that unless local Pomona Latino population growth is channeled into the political process — with voter registration, election day voting and participation in government — there can be no awakened Pomona giant.

The effect of economy is clear and significant to the story. The dominant social class, which are the white males, are shown to have more power. During this time period, white men were typically supported by the black community, such as people like Rosaleen, a black servant on Terrence Owen’s (Or T-Ray) Peach Farm and the caretaker of Lily Owens (T-Ray’s daughter). Rosaleen was one of many whom, “Worked as one of his pickers,” (2), and without the many laborers like Rosaleen, none of the work would have gotten done on the peach farm. Thus, the story sets up a setting where the dominant white community was supported by the black community, which creates a great lead into the struggle against oppression later in the story.
Look at how successful it was for African Americans! They are now fully incorporated into our culture with voting rights! Some make copious amounts of money in professional athletics. If we can do this again, we will be heroes throughout the world! If in 200 hundred years, they become assimilated and we can in turn offer them voting rights, after we have taught them how to act in our society, and where their place is, then they have paid their dues, and can become citizens of our fine country.
