At this point, Dr. King reveals that inferiority has distorted his daughter’s personality to feel bitterness towards white people (para. 14-15).

Pausch needs to support his opinion, in order to make it believable. By bringing in his setting to help explain why he believes he won the parent lottery, using specific memories, such as "They underwrote a fifty-student dormitory in rural Thailand" (Pausch 24) and "My dad was an incredible storyteller" (Pausch 22), his opinion begins to gain credibility because there is reasoning behind it.
