3) How does Buchman demonstrate his Ethos (personal credibility) to write about football, even though he is a television writer? Buchman demonstrates his ethos when writing about football even though he is a television writer when he says, "My fandom crested in 2003 when the Tampa Bay Buccaneers won the Super Bowl... My ticket stub is framed. I still have a souvenir cup" (Buchman, 2016). This shows Buchman 's credibility because it proves his dedication to the sport.
Daniel Webster was very expressive in The Seventh of March Speech. He talked about how America should be a place of peace, liberty, and strength. However, his words certainly did not match up with the fact that he was a bystander of the injustice of slavery. His speech lacked the importance of African American 's circumstances entirely. Although his speech, informed us that his primary concern was that America be strongly united, and secure, built on a good foundation, able to resolve issues, and act as a national family, he doesn 't suggest nor help create a resolution to the issue.
As Coates departs from Dr. Jones house he thought over the loss of his dear friend. He thinks of the protesters and how perhaps their bodies was abused because they knew that it was not theirs, to begin with. Coates informs his son that it is unlikely that the dreamers will never come to their consciousness. It is clear that racial justice and the dream does not seem to be going away anytime soon, that the black will suffer from inequality and injustice for a very long time. Despite, our society having a former black American president, the media focusing on the protest against police killings Coates sees no prospect of much change.
Why do you stand during the National Anthem, some people stand out of pure respect, other people sit because they are “oppressed”. Colin Kaepernick started a controversial protest during the preseason football game on August 14th. Many people agree that it is for a good cause, but he is not choosing the right time to protest. People believe that standing during the National Anthem is a sign of respect and gratitude for your country, but people like Kaepernick chose this time to sit or kneel to get people to look at the oppression towards minorities in the country. Kaepernick told a reporter, “I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people, and people of color.”
“Stars and Bars” The confederate flag’s “Stars and Bars” means little to some, heritage for a few, but to others it is a symbol of racism. Confederacy is a part of our country’s history and should be preserved respectably. Recent shootings have brought attention to the Confederate war flag regarding the racist connotation it has towards a percentage of American citizens. When we see the flag flown by individuals we automatically assume that they are racist.
Football players in the NFL are protesting racial inequality and police brutality by taking a knee during the National Anthem. Although this is a peaceful protest, the NFL is no place for a protest to occur. The NFL is for people to play football; not for politics. This protest was started by a quarterback from the San Francisco 49ers, Colin Kaepernick. Colin Kaepernick started all of this because he said that he refused to honor a song or “show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color.”
His uses of the persuasive language of logos helps to explain that African Americans have waited too long to receive the freedom they very well deserved. This evokes sympathy in the clergymen and makes them realize a change must occur. On the contrary, King utilizes emotional appeal to explain to the church officials that the way African Americans were treated does not deserve praise: “I doubt that you would so quickly commend the policemen…if you were to observe them, as they did on two occasions, refuse to give us food because we wanted to sing out grace together, I cannot join you in your praise of the Birmingham police department” (para. 44). King implements the use of emotional appeal to convince his readers of clergymen that the Birmingham police force does not treat African Americans who were peacefully protesting as they
Resilience is shown in both of these heroes, as they took on noble tasks, while knowing it was futile. However Attikus and Bhutto stilled tried to just make a miniscule difference in their society. In To Kill a Mockingbird Atticus took Tom Robinson case, and even he admitted that a all white in the deep south would convict a black man on sight. Even so Atticus said that if he didn’t defend Tom Robinson he “couldn’t go to church and worship God if I didn’t try to help that man”(Lee 104). This demonstrates Atticus resilience as he has been willing to fight a losing battle just to demonstrate his convictions; a non racist judicial system in Maycomb, Alabama.
For instance, Eric Reid wrote in his article “Eric Reid: Why Colin Kaepernick and I Decided to Take a Knee” that he “remember[ed] thinking our posture was like a flag flown at half-mast to mark a tragedy” (Reid). Clearly, the protesters were not intentionally attempting to be disrespectful and view their actions as respectful, however, that does not change how they are viewed by others. According to Quin Hillyer, they should not “denigrate the symbols of a nation of good people” (Hillyer). Although the protesters feel they are being respectful they need to realize that from the opposite point of view their actions appear quite disrespectful (Hillyer). In addition, Eric also states that “we . . .
During the first three preseason games of the 2016 NFL season, Colin Kaepernick formerly quarterback of the San Francisco 49ers sat through the national anthem in protest of police brutality towards African American individuals. When asked about it, Kaepernick said, “I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of colour.” News outlets immediately attacked
Introduction Practice Cade Cam Newton scored his first touchdown of the season. He headed to the back of the end zone for his signature celebration (Dabbing). The officials throw a penalty for unsportsmanlike conduct. Roger Goodell has changed so many things and most NFL players don’t agree with them. Roger Goodell needs to quit banning celebrations and changing the NFL.
Critics argue that even with his reputation and political place (National Spokesperson) he did not demand for more equality for the African American population. Laws such as the Jim Crow and Black Codes prohibited blacks to vote or engage in political meetings. Overall, I think Washington did a great job of helping the African American community gain educational rights. He worked hard to give the blacks what they needed (education) and at the same time kept peace within the two races.
The owner of the Washington redskins argues his side of the debate by inserting an anecdote in his letter to his fans talking about his time going to a redskins game when he was 6 years old. he invokes a sense of pathos in his writing speaking of the team 's respect of Native Americans and how they honor them with the redskin team name. However his use of tradition for a reason to keep the name immediately weakens his case saying “ That tradition -- the song and the cheer -- it mattered so much to me as a child ” a child who didn 't understand the nature of the name or the behavior of the fans as anything more than people cheering on their team and having fun dressing up as their mascot. This appeal to tradition is not a justifiable way to convince people to come to his side of the argument. Anytime there has been a push for change in this country the push for the abolition of slavery or the women 's civil rights movement people use the appeal of tradition or their freedom of speech to argue for their cause but this does not mean
At first, it was used during Civil war battles and was a memorial to fallen soldiers who had died fighting for their independence. If this was how it was received now, no one would have a problem with it, but as time went on, the perception of the flag started to change. In the 1940s, a Dixiecrat party was formed and they used the flag as a symbol to support segregation. Confederate heritage organizations tried to protect the flag from misuse by having several Southern states pass laws to penalize “desecration” of the flag, but this did not help. Confederate heritage groups lost control of the flag and its real
– Abraham Lincoln, 1862”(KenCohPg425). The Gettysburg Address was written as a tribute to the 7,000 fallen men at the cemetery at Gettysburg. The speech was to remind the people what they were fighting for and what they have been fighting for; freedom for all. Although Lincoln knew that slavery was morally wrong, he could not do anything about it because of the constitution. The three-fifths compromise helped represent some of the slaves, but since the constitution did not forthright say slavery was prohibited, slave owners were protected.
