There was terrible wealth distribution to the rich were excessively rich whilst the poor where extremely poor. They would work in factories for log hours, which had no regard for health and safety. Therefore, work was very dangerous. They had an unbearable workload to earn a stable living. Due to their poor pay, they would live in cramped and humid houses making them extremely vulnerable to diseases like pneumonia.
Workers were only paid enough to support their homes and they could barely support their family. The air in the mills, filled with cotton dust made people cough and sometimes lead to pneumonia. One benefit was that workers were given their own houses, yet all their family was crammed into one small room and the house was usually dirty and its water supply polluted. To make things worse, the mill owners taxed the worker’s family on how much water they used. To the workers, the mills were satanic and to furnish this idea, the industrial revolution, along with the mills, sparked revolts across the country.
Th black folk further internalized the propaganda that slavery was justified, they neglected their own education, and their future depended mainly on their own efforts. To this, Du Bois responded civil liberties, education, and equal opportunities were detrimental to anyone’s advancement in
For example, he says “Negro finds himself in exile in his own land.” Not only did this phrase show his empathy on Negros and their unfair treatment, but it also appealed to his audience’s emotions and lead them too, black or white, to have compassion as well. Dr. King’s words also helped motivate and inspire his audience to go out and demand change in a nonviolent way to handle
He starts to allow the reader to empathize with him by going from identifying the woman as his victim to stating how her response caused him to feel bad about himself. Staples does an excellent job in drawing a guilty sensation from the audience, which is important when gaining an emotion response. "I grew accustomed to but never being comfortable," in my opinion, this is the most influential statement because it makes the readers feel guilt and think about being in the writer 's shoes (614). He accomplishes a rhetorical goal by pulling emotion from his audience. He makes the audience see from his level that racism still exists whether society chooses to believe it or
Migrant workers are people from foreign countries that come to the U.S. to find paying jobs. Migrant workers had to work hard physical jobs for long hours everyday.

The purpose of this movie is to show the people of modern society the unjustness that the slaves endured. It does so by using pathos and logos to tell the legacy of one slave, Nat. Storytelling is a great way to teach people. In the movie, Nate Parker tells the story of Nat Turner and gets his message out there in a way that will impact the majority of the audience, by tugging on one’s heartstrings. The struggles and mistreatment inflicted on the slaves is shown throughout the movie.
The social justice issue that I decided to help solve was the social injustice caused by the SAT or ACT tests. The tests unintentionally discriminate against many ethnicities because they are written in a way that gives people native to America an advantage. It also discriminates against less financially stable families because they might not be able to afford tutoring services. This issue relates to the scene in To Kill a Mockingbird where Jem is criticizing the School system in Maycomb. Then, the discrimination towards certain ethnicities is paralleled in The Help.
Fear of Skin In the story “Walk on By,” author Brent Staples, writes about how being a black man, could elicit fear in people. Staples gives many examples of his own encounters with people fearing him because of the color of his skin. One example that Staples gives helps the readers connect to Staples the most; and aids the readers in understanding what he is trying to say. The example also helps the readers know the full extent of Staples’ hardships. One example that is effective in aiding the readers to understand Staples point of view of the world; would have to be when Staple hears the “thunk, thunk, thunk of the driver… hammering down the door locks” (Staples 28).
Workhouses in Victorian England The Victorian era was an extremely harsh and dreadful time because people were without jobs, electricity, and even transportation. Workhouses were invented for those who had had no income or place to live. They earned themselves a place to stay by performing certain jobs in the workhouse. In these workhouses were different groups of people, from orphans to disabled elderly and even widowed mothers. Often prisoners and wrongdoers were sent to workhouses as punishment.
