These strategies work on the rhetorical appeals ethos and pathos. Exemplification appeals to pathos by making the audience feel sympathy for the immigrants for what they give up, and authority figures appeal to ethos by giving credibility to an expert, by supporting the argument through strong facts. In this essay, I plan to explore how these rhetorical strategies act on their respective appeals, how this is used to strengthen the Suarez-Orozco’s argument to persuade their audience, as well as explore other sources that may support this claim. One of the key strategies used by the Suarez-Orozcos, was the use of exemplification. An assumption they make is that their audience is a group of Americans who haven’t heard the stories of immigrants and the risks they take, but instead just assume they know the story.
The improvement of the rights of the Canadian Immigrants Canada, as one of the biggest immigration countries, welcomes people from all over the the world and forms a representative multicultural atmosphere in today’s society. Over these few decays, the country has always been consummating the laws to provide immigrants equal rights and freedoms, and better treatments they could receive. However, Canadian immigration laws were not unprejudiced and it eventually caused a “legal discrimination” before 1976. The legal rights of the immigrant groups have improved significantly because of the demands of developing the country, the influences of the wars, and the globalization of the world. Since 1880s, more immigrants and foreigners came to Canada because of the railway construction project.
But, living in a multicultural city is by itself a very beneficial exercise not only on a personal level but also in terms of cultural exchange, economic exchange and generating new ideas. One experiences what is called cultural variety when living in a diverse area. He is somehow introduced to new kinds of foods, architectures, arts, music, festivals, religions, mythologies, writings and more of general day-to-day life. These new things would easily open one’s heart and mind to new places, new ideas and new people. According to (Wolfstone, 2010) nowadays all people around the world happily go out and eat Chinese food, use Japanese technology, drive German
It is something that will improve the country socially and economically. It would resolve so many issues regarding immigration reform and about all of the young undocumented alien minors in America. It is something that would motivate them even, because they have been given a second chance, which is great then. It will empower them; it will show them that you should never give up and that America after-all. These alien minors will become better-educated, higher-earning workers and taxpayers.
The way immigrants are treated in America impacts their success as citizen. In addition, one of the ways a former immigrant might feel like they have become a “fully-fledged citizen” is when they feel as though they belong and are integrated into the country they’ve come to. First, an example of how discrimination affects an immigrant’s success in the United States is
The articles in this essay will give three different insights on how American culture is perceived based on observations and first hand experiences. Jennifer Price used the trend of the pink flamingo to describe a time of new and vibrant change that has shaped its culture to be strong and optimistic. Richard Rodriguez gives his first hand experience of being a part of two different cultures to give a comparison between totally opposite places with their own traditions and customs. Finally, Scott Sanders presents his belief of ideas are more important to the American people than the places which they live in. All of these writers all give substantial information of their viewpoints which combined makes up the identity of American culture.
Since its inception America has been coined the “melting pot,” a term that’s intended to encase pride over the vast amount of diversity contained within our country. That pride, however, is nothing more than an idealization of the truth. America is a country of great diversity, but its pride and acceptance of that diversity relies on a contingent tolerance. Diversity is a wide term that can refer to a number of different groups and in this context it is referring to groups of minorities in America, particularly the LGBT community. Perhaps, the best illustration of this harmful treatment can be found in the media, specifically in the form of television.
America has a great culture, is a multicultural nation, home to many racial, traditional and diverse groups. When people talk about America, there are so many things that people from around the world admiring and learning. It is a rich country, especially about the culture. American culture is diverse and abundance, but it still has its own cultural identity. Sometimes, it is hard to understand the culture in any country where I have never come, but I really want to discover about this.
The “Great gatsby” is indeed a superficial book, not only being able to capture the essence of being in the roaring twenties. The thing that makes it really amazing is the fact that it keeps being relevant to us from different time and different place. The story is based on the roaring twenties, It introduce us to the “lost generation” of america, which has “Loose moral codes” and being highly materialistic, the story it follows the rise and fall of Gatsby’s american dream; which ends with a tragic ending. The major reason of the success of The Great Gatsby today is that the book itself has a strong resonance with us at the modern time, the issues being addressed in the book is everlasting.
The NPD proved to be eminently suited for that study, on account of several factors, including: first, it had adopted Compstat since the year 1997 (Yüksel, 2015, p. 112). Second, it was not averse to the conduct of interviews. Third, the NPD was large in size, had a substantial amount of crime, was quite similar to the New York Police Department (NYPD), and it had experienced significant reduction in crime rates, subsequent to the implementation of Compstat (Yüksel, 2015, p.
This reimagining solves this problem by taking the issues of Antigone and putting it in a time and place more people are readily familiar with and interested in, namely, 1920s New York City. It also allows for the exploration of loyalty dynamics within the Mafia and the conflict Mafia vs state, a topic many people are interested in. The recent success of the 2013 movie The Great Gatsby has revived more interest in this particular moment in time. Many of the people who saw the movie would also read the book, since both works focus on a darker side of the 1920s that most
The greatest conflict in America is that it has had to learn how to accept the ethnic, racial, and religious diversity that the newcomers bring in while also trying to having its strong traditions (Burgon). The power of immigrants is gradually improving. The term aliens, given to immigrants when talking about laws and courts. These aliens can ideally become residents and then citizens of the U.S., which will then be able to challenge the constitution in the immigration policy (Cox). Becoming a citizens also provide the worry free lifestyle in immigration as no longer being affected by immigration laws as first having to work for the residency and then the citizenship.
In “Kickflipping New York” , Akiko Busch illustrates the knowledge of New York in her own perspective thinking that New York’s architecture is extravagant and well known for it, however the mother is much more exposed to how New York is by her sons enjoyment and admiration to the city for a different reason, learning that New York can be loved in different ways and reasons. Leading to another story “Here is New York”, E.B White’s view on the story displays how the city is full of gifts of opportunity such as privacy and loneliness but with these many gifts, there is no true definition to describe the city. I agree with E.B White’s view of New York, there can be a different definition depending on who you are and what you desire in this city that never sleeps, there can never be a settled meaning. In “Kickflipping New York”, Akiko Busch starts off with how New York as a “carnival teeming with illicit possibilities” when she arrived to
The film Le Haine focused on the daily struggles of three main young men who are of Jewish (Vinz), North African (Hubert) and Arab (Saïd) descent that live in the suburbs of Paris. The three have been together and got involved with the riot, following the incident where one of their friends from the community has been arrested and brutally attacked by the police. Triggered by the ongoing unrest, the three friends’ lives took a drastic turn when they retrieved a gun at a crime scene, and decided to take the matters into own hands to get revenge. Le Haine not only portrayed the parallel and segregated way of living between the mainstream population (the Parisians) and the outcasts (the ethnic immigrants), the film also casted light on the dreadful tensions that were generated, intensified and embedded in the society through mistrusts and systematic discriminations.
