"When the architects of our republic wrote the magnificent words of the constitution.....this note was a promise to all men-yes, black men as well as white men
"now is the time to make justice a reality for all of God's children."
"But one hundred years later, we must face the tragic fact that the Negro is still not free. One hundred years later, the life of the Negro is still sadly crippled by the manacles of segregation and the chains of discrimination. One hundred years later, the Negro lives on a lonely island of poverty in the midst of a vast ocean of material prosperity. One hundred years later, the Negro is still languishing in the corners of American society and finds himself an exile in his own land. So we have come here today to dramatize an appalling condition."
This is ethos because it uses the authority of our founding fathers .
This is pathos because it uses patriotic words like justice and God and invokes patriotism in Americans.
"I am not unmindful that some of you have come here out of great trials and tribulations. Some of you have come fresh from narrow jail cells. Some of you have come from areas where your quest for freedom left you battered by the storms of persecution and staggered by the winds of police brutality. You have been the veterans of creative suffering. Continue to work with the faith that unearned suffering is redemptive."
This is logos because it keeps saying that even after 100 years they still haven't got the freedom they logically deserve because of what was written by the founding fathers.
"We cannot be satisfied as long as the Negro's basic mobility is from a smaller ghetto to a larger one. We can never be satisfied as long as our chlidren are stripped of their selfhood and robbed of their dignity by signs stating "for whites only." We cannot be satisfied as long as a Negro in Mississippi cannot vote and a Negro in New York believes he has nothing for which to vote. No, no, we are not satisfied, and we will not be satisfied until justice rolls down like waters and righteousness like a mighty stream."
This is ethos because it uses his own credibility to improve his own placement on racism.
"I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation \where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character".
This is pathos because like in those animal commercials showing the suffering of animals. Martin is calling out the abuse black people receive to invoke pity on them and make people want to fight for equality.
This is logos because it is stating the facts that if something doesn't change for the equality of blacks and satisfy there wants for equality something bad will happen.
