"Five score years ago, a great American in whose symbolic shadow we stand today, signed the Emancipation Proclamation. This momentous decree came as a great beacon light of hope to millions of Negro slaves who had been seared in the flames of withering injustice. This note was a promise that all men, yes, black men as well as white men." (King)
"We can never be satisfied as long as our children are stripped of their self-hood and robbed of their dignity by signs stating: "For Whites Only." (King)
"One hundred years later, the life of the Negro is still sadly crippled by the manacles of segregation and the chains of discrimination." (King)
Martin Luther King is using ethics to show how some of the old president's were fighting for black people rights. Abe Lincoln fought for black equality. A lot of people look up to him, because of what he did, and not who is is.
"As we walk, we must make the pledge that we shall always march ahead. We cannot turn back. There are those who are asking the devotees of civil rights, “When will you be satisfied?” We can never be satisfied as long as the Negro is the victim of the unspeakable horrors of police brutality." (King)
Kids are being stripped and robbed of there dignity because of how they look. They should be able to come together, and be friends with everyone no matter what there skin tone is. It shows how they are sad, because they don't get to be with there friends.
"Now is the time to lift our nation from the quicksands of racial injustice to the solid rock of brotherhood. Now is the time to make justice a reality for all of God’s children." (King)
"One hundred years later the negro is still languished in the corners of American society and finds himself in exile in his own land. And so we’ve come here today to dramatize a shameful condition." (King)
He states the fact that people who are negro doesn't get treated as well as the white in are modern age. He states that still a bunch of people still hate them. This is a example because he has facts that go along with his speech.
Ethic's is being shown here, because he wants everyone to change their views on how they think of people. Martin Luther King is correct by saying all men, and women no matter how they look are equal. He is also stating that he is getting hurt from all the things that people say about people with different skin tones.
It tugs at your emotions, because he makes you think that you got to take action right now. There is no waiting to show that everyone will and should be equal. Everyone should have the chance to be who they want to be, and never get judged by how they look.
Martin Luther King is using logic to prove how they have to live today, and how they will always have to live until everyone thinks that negro's are equal. He is telling us they he could not own property but be treated as property.
