Past leaders such as Andrew Jackson, Adolf Hitler, Benito Mussolini, and Marc Antony are evidence that society does not reward morality and good character in leadership. Society is drawn to leaders that have good rhetoric, propaganda, and charismatic personalities, and society supports them despite their immorality. Society is concerned about stability more than the morality of their leaders and will support immoral leaders in times of crisis to provide stability. In history there have been multiple leaders that have used rhetoric, propaganda and charismatic personalities to gain power, despite their morals.
The author wrote the two chapters in a chronological order to facilitate the understanding of all the events that occurred in the past. Daschuk used sources such as officials’ reports, statistics, and historical documents to support his opinion and give effect to his text. In chapter 6, he used a table to demonstrate the level of deaths. In addition, he included some pictures in order to demonstrate to the readers physically some aspects of his argument. This technique helps him to convince the readers.
During the 1980s, space exploration was a popular topic to watch, listen to, and learn about in American life. NASA had already sent a lot of missions to space, all reaching new milestones and increasing interest in space exploration. The Challenger, however, had a different mission than the rest. It was going to carry the first teacher, Christa McAuliffe, into space where she would teach two lessons. There were six other men and women on board the Challenger.
No, matter where you are in the world, distractions are going to get to you, and it affects your primary focus and mission. Distractions keep you from doing your work and keep your mind drifting elsewhere with little side bars in your head. According to source one “Brain Interrupted” By Bob Sullivan and source two “The Censors” by Luisa Valenzuela, both are connected with hindrance among the effect technologies has on the human Brain and Juan retrieving his letter. So, with both Brain Interrupted and The Censors both sources prove that distraction can affect your train of thought or what you are doing in general, with Bob Sullivan he displays his point through technology and the effect it has on you, while Luisa Valenzuela profess her point through her fictional character Juan and how he got bewildered.
The beginning of her writing starts with explanations describing why Black families experience “immediate threats” (Funes 1). The author is using these words to convey how at-risk African Americans actually are. Using this appeal creates trust between the reader and the writer stressing a personal credibility. This strategy is working for this specific writing because this is a sympathetic topic analyzing multiple different issues and Funes is applying powerful words and phrases to use the reader's emotion to her advantage. The utilization of the words George Floyds vocalized as he was gasping for air “I can’t breathe” to connect the issues of pollution and police violence in the black community was an outstanding way of appealing to the reader's emotions comprehending the impact those 3 words had on the public.
In his essay, Coates refuses the idea of “hope” and delivers his message like a statistic report. He often uses personal anecdotes to make his messages more personal, thus enabling his readers to place themselves in the person’s shoes. Then Coates would go on and recount the gruesome or horrid mistreatment that person has gone through regardless how hurtful or painful these stories are. Furthermore, he substantiates his claims with painful statistic reports and numbers – numbers that pierces the black readers like swords. Tahiti Anyabwile in his essay “A Call for Hope in the Age of Mass Incarceration” states that “Coates fails his readership and fails to represent something vital about African Americans – his writing lacks hope”.
Henry Garnet was a Minister and an educator to the black community. He became known for a speech that he done that later became known as “A Call to Rebellion.” In this speech he successfully presents an argument to his audience to allow them to see and understand his viewpoint. With the use of rhetoric in ethos and pathos, a long with his pronoun use, effectively convinces the audience that they could overcome slavery. Henry Garnet effectively appeals to the audience ethically by using his power as a Minister to inform the men of slavery about religious values.
Racism is a topic that has been relevant for many years though our time. Brent Staples wrote "Black Men and Public Space," published in Ms. Magazine in 1986, where he discusses how he became "familiar with the language of fear" (614). Throughout his essay, Staples uses logos, ethos, and pathos to give a reader an insight into the life of a black man in society, which effectively reaches his intended audience, but not his current day audience. Brent Staples starts talking about his "first victim" (613) picking up her pace until she was no longer able to be seen.
Throughout the article, McIntosh integrates ethos and a comparison of male privilege to white privilege into her argument. Interestingly, these methods create a reading that, nearly 30 years later, is still shockingly relevant. Accordingly, “White Privilege” works by directly speaking to an audience of primarily white people. When it was written in 1989 at a time when the term ‘white privilege’ was not commonly used, McIntosh was one of the first people to ever write about white privilege from the perspective of a white person.
For my final project of the semester, Project 4, I decided to revise my rhetorical analysis of project 2. I took your comments and feedback very solemnly, to avail further my inditement. I understood the feedback consummately, and optically discerned precisely what I needed to do. The main thing I wanted to fixate on was understanding that the paper was filled with many conceptions, and constructing it down to precise conceptions, and expounding them exhaustively. I abstracted some conceptions that I believe that weren’t apart of the process of explicating the argument or how it works.
A Journey Traveled Through Pain Imagine being involved in a bloody massacre and watching your community dissipate into the dusk. Picture dodging the piercing bullets as they whisk past innocent ears. Envision your home turning into a battle ground, breaking up into military bases—flipping the world upside down. (nice capture tactic) This was peoples’ lives for many years, beginning in the 1960’s, during the Civil War in Sierra Leone.
“Honey, you are changing that boy’s life.” A friend of Leigh Anne’s exclaimed. Leigh Anne grinned and said, “No, he’s changing mine.” This exchange of words comes from the film trailer of an award-winning film, The Blind Side, directed by John Lee Hancock, released on November 20th, 2009. This film puts emphasis on a homeless, black teen, Michael Oher, who has had no stability or support in his life thus far.
Often known as the Father of American Literature to many educated individuals, Ralph Waldo Emerson in his oration “The American Scholar” brilliantly provides a sublime example of how Emerson earned his title through the appliance of diction, syntax, allusions, and many other rhetorical devices and strategies. Indicated towards his highly educated audience, the Phi Beta Kappa Society, Emerson introduces the idea that the common class and common concepts of everyday life are becoming the future of art and literature through purpose, credibility, and tone. As many great writers, Emerson does not simply tell about his idea, but instead uses rhetorical strategies to help show his central point, one such strategy being purpose. Being focused on informing his audience of the coming days, the use of purpose can be
These three steps not only apply to the individual memory but also to the collective memory. In this novel, the memory of an individual is not just his or her memory; it’s actually the memory of a community that has gone through the same pain, cruelties and humiliation. That is, Sethe’s character represents every black woman who was tortured, raped and whose children were taken away from her. Thus, her character represents the pain that every black woman in
Moreover, demonstrate consequences are taken to oppress racial and ethnic minorities to keep them in a subservient position. Overall, this film has provided me with a visual depiction of how stereotypes are a mental tool that enforces racial segregation and self-hate. The label of “White” became a necessity for Sarah Jane to achieve in society. To attain it she needed to move to a new city, change her name and deny her mother.
