MLK believed an unjust law is no law at all so breaking it in his mind is moral and right. He has a duty to break the unjust law in order to achieve the greater good, which was what his civil disobedience was based on. Martin Luther King was a strong courageous leader who sought out the best way to make the most people better off than they were. MLK’s purpose for direct action was to get people to listen and to see the injustice in America, by “seek[ing] to create such a crisis and foster such a tension that a community which has constantly refused to negotiate is forced to confront the issue and “It seeks so to dramatize the issue that it can no longer be ignored” (King). It is this non-violent approach that MLK is so well recognized for because it was revolutionary; the normal response to such injustice should have been riots and violent protests but by being “civil” it caused people to take notice of the real
Mentioning Gandhi, and stating his thought son the best ways peacefully cause change. This is showing the audience that Chavez realizes that these men have proved their methods the best, and he doesn't want to change them just try to use them for the benefit of the people. “ The boycott, as Gandhi taught, is the most nearly perfect instrument of nonviolent change, allowing masses of people to participate actively in a cause”. This quote really does work so well because of the organization that is used by Chavez to convey Gandhi’s message. If Chavez had not eased this very power quotes into is writing, they would not have been hear the same way.
Another example is President Kennedy because he did everything he could to make blacks equal. He knew that he was extremely hated for supporting equality but that did not stop him. When most people think of heros they often describe the heros as having righteousness. Righteousness is a major belief one must have to be a true hero and always do the right
Social Norms in comparison to Honest Morality of Huck Finn Nelson Mandela once said, “No one is born hating another person because of the color of shin, or his background or his religion. People learn to hate, and if they learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than opposite.” Nelson Mandela criticizes society by saying that it is the society’s own fault that people are being discriminated and not strong enough to speak up for their thoughts. He also says that it is possible for society to change but it takes brave challenges to realise it. In the novel the Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Huck escapes society and civilization by fleeing onto the Mississippi river with a slave who becomes his best friend over this adventure in which Huck learns a lot about racism and human behaviors. In the novel, Mark Twain demonstrates
Martin Luther King a famous social activist once stated, “we must develop and maintain the capacity to forgive. He who is devoid of the power to forgive is devoid of the power to love.” When referring to these words it is shown how forgiving we can be for people that we hate or dislike. In William Golding's book The Lord of the Flies his character Jack shows the actions of power, fear, and acceptance. People in power are more afraid of losing that power because it may show you as a failure, and to take control is much easier than taking responsibility for actions because there may be consequences, but most of all forgiveness is the hardest to do because it is just too hard to let go. Jack was a different type of leader than Martin Luther
This is another key to putting a stop to segregation. People always ask why is there segregation in the first place? Who came up with the idea that we are different from white people? No one really knows but there really only one solution to stopping it. That is to push for the equal rights that should have been given to us in the beginning.
It is my belief that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr’s assassination was unjustified; he was a nonviolent civil rights leader, who simply desired peace amongst all human-beings. Unfortunately, on most issues a lot of people didn't agree with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Dr. Martin Luth er King Jr was an amazing civil rights leader who helped many African Americans; he strived to teach and demonstrate peace with one another. He was a minister who often preached about his hopes of there being peace amongst all people no matter your race creed or religious background. In his eyes, we were all brothers and sisters. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr was more than an activist, he was a minister, a civil rights leader; he was a loving
In Robinsons letter to the president he addressed how the world just keeps saying be patient and then wouldn’t do anything, he called out the president on how he isn’t helping everyone, he is hurting everyone. (Robinson, letter) and (Wilson,web). Robinson’s impact on society portrayed his legacy as a great one and made people realize that he was a hero, but also that everyone can be a hero. Jackie Robinson truly has left an impact as the man who broke the color barrier. Withstanding all hate that was thrown at him and doing it while keeping a smile on his face and inspiring others.
For example he tell us to stop be boring and change the world. Some people may say, “But I can’t I 'm not good enough or big enough for this position.” Or something like that. But the things I listed above are nothing but excuses, and anyone who has changed the world has got off their butt and started doing something. For example Martin Luther King Jr. took a stand in his beliefs and decided to do something about what he was was wrong and what he saw was right. This is a successful person, and this successful person didn 't just quit or stop or make excuses.
was an American that really used his freedom to protest and speak out for what he knew was right. King’s ability to publicly protest to the world about civil rights is what it means to be an American. Martin Luther King Jr. knew that it was not right for any human being to be treated the way African Americans were being treated at this time. King was able to use his freedom to create a better America, which is why we have freedom in the first place. Something to change about America...
They have been treated poorly through slavery, killings, segregation and much more over the years. Their treatment has improved because there is no slavery any more, even though killings still happen more attention is being brought to that situation, and they are looked like as equal to the other ethnic groups around. This group is part of a minority still today. Some of the ethnic stereotypes that this group faces are being judged as low life, not hard working, uneducated, and unequal to some people who are “racist”. This group has suffered tremendous discrimination over the years that they have been around but it has also improved as time has progressed as well.
