On the tenth anniversary of the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Casar Chavez published an article stating Dr.King ideal and supporting nonviolence resistance. Throughout the article, Chavez explain and convince why through nonviolence resistance a change can be made. Chavez use of rhetorical skill like the use of diction to compare and contrast nonviolence against violence resistance, use repetition, and appeal to human moral and religious belief to help support his argument for nonviolence resistance. The use of the repetition of “we” and “us” show that Chavez is on the people side and are united, which makes the atmosphere more relaxed and less tense.

Introduction The lessons I have experienced for education in diversity and oppression within a multicultural society have taken many different forms, however the similarities of these lessons are evident in the following reflections I have explored. In my reflections on gender bias, sexual orientation, race perspectives, religion and spirituality, and classism, I can see there was a subtle, if not strong, disconnect between the values I learned throughout my life and the current status of diversity as it is in modern societies. A new awareness and appreciation about the value set I once defended has evolved due to the subsequent literature and varied forms of media which I have been exposed to in the past several years. Values which surround oppression and privilege are usually just below the surface of multicultural relationships.

In fact, the whole government was built on the idea that the people should appoint the leaders that rule the country and if those leaders did not rule justly, to rightly replace them. Peaceful resistance is one of our rights as Americans.

The main reason for why our founding fathers gave us the 1st amendment was because they were limited to all those by the king in Great Britain. They got tired of having to listen to a King that wasn't even there, so they formed the Boston tea party, and in result of that was the Revolutionary War.
