Even just by reading pages 5-12, I can tell that Ta-Nehisi Coates is a good writer because his essay is highly thoughtful and provocative, and the well-written narrative provides lots of powerful examples to depicts the racial struggle in the U.S. He told his son, “You must always remember that the sociology, the history, the economics, the graphs, the charts, the regression all land, with great violence, upon the body.” The concept of violence upon the body appears on every important point of my reading.

Using Uncle Sam as a comparison to earn civil rights. Using his perspective, he made opinions that not only expressed what he wanted to say, but every single black person in America. Using wars to make broad statements, putting his perspective, and finally, telling all men, no matter their race, skin color, ethnicity, or education all deserve equal rights and African Americans will do whatever it takes, to earn their own rights.

Malcolm X is a prominent figure in history.
