The Use Of Rhetorical Logos In The MLK Letter
If you have ever felt the stinging pain from someone calling you a name, imagine that pain 10,000
times worse, everyday, and it's not just words and names. It is punches being thrown from every
direction, and spit flying at you. Lynchings across the street from holy churches where white people
would praise the lord and his 10 commandments, but break his most sacred, "Thou shalt not kill".
This isn't even half of what you would experience if you grew up in 1963 in Birmingham Alabama,
the most segregated town in America. This is when the life of MLK flourished, his words guided
him in and out of bad situations, and to lead hundreds of thousands for their civil rights. Although
MLK is clever in his use of rhetorical appeals, his two most effective were pathos, and anaphora,
these strategies provoke empathy and guilt from the white clergy, which generates a sense of
exigency and demand. MLK's use of pathos spreads throughout his letter, using pathos takes tolls on
the reader because of how strong his words are. While MLK fights through his time in Birmingham
jail, he writes, "when you suddenly find your tongue twisted and your speech stammering as you
seek to explain to your six year old daughter why she cannot go to the public amusement park that
has just been advertised on television, and see tears welling up in her little eyes when she is told that
Funtown is closed to colored children, and see the depressing clouds of inferiority begin to form in
her little mental sky,"

Martin Luther King’s (Mlk) “Letter from Birmingham Jail”...
Kyle McCrite Ms. Vaughn English 102–01 14 September 2009 Someone Else's Shoes Martin Luther
King's (MLK) "Letter from Birmingham Jail," was written in 1963 as a response to the Eight
Alabama Clergymen's public statement against King's actions in April of that year. Martin Luther
King Jr. was an activist for desegregation of the south in the early 1960s and overcame much
adversity to attain incredible gains on the segregation issue in the United States. King uses effective
persuasive appeals of logical evidence, emotional appeal, and author credibility to win over his
audience in "The Letter from Birmingham Jail." MLK's writing shows the effects of segregation in
Birmingham with clear direct language and heart wrenching examples. ... Show more content on
Helpwriting.net ...
King brings in the question, what is a just and unjust law? A just law is one that promotes good
morals and is followed by both the majority as well as the minority of society. Martin Luther King
Jr. defines an unjust law as: A human law that is not rooted in eternal law and natural law... Any law
that degrades human personality is unjust. All segregation statutes are unjust because segregation
distorts the soul and damages the personality (658). MLK even covers the fact that some laws are
just on the surface, but unjust in how they are enforced. The example of his imprisonment proves
this statement. He was arrested for parading without a permit, but this is an unjust law because it
promotes segregation and denies basic constitutional rights to freedom of speech and assembly
(659). He uses these soulful explanations of just and unjust laws trying to appeal to his readers'
emotions, though the notion of just and unjust laws may seem logical to them as well. Just and
unjust laws may be considered logical evidence as well as emotional, but Martin Luther King Jr.
uses a few much better logical examples to convince the audience to see his point of view. His
logical examples of moral wrongdoings include strong emotion and cold harsh facts. Birmingham's
history of cruel segregation is well known and possibly the most segregated city in the United
States. There were more "unsolved bombings of Negro homes and churches in

Rhetorical Analysis Of Mlk Letter From Birmingham Jail
Theme: MLK telling white people to treat black people equally. Logic of letter from Birmingham
jail MLK uses facts to educate his readers specifically when it comes to nonviolent campaign. He
says "In a nonviolent campaign There are four basic steps: collection of facts to determine whether
injustices exist, negotiation, self purification, and direct action We have gone through all of These
steps in Birmingham". (MLK pg 272) MLK Jr believed that we are capable of living a peaceful life
one in which all individuals have equal opportunities regardless of their skin color or race. In the I
have a dream speech I believe he was trying to encourage people that change will come Emotional
appeal I have a dream speech this speech focuses heavily on emotional appeal he talks "About over
one hundred years ago the Emancipation Proclamation was signed. It should have been a joyous
moment". Dr king then states " but one hundred years later the negro still is not free". He talks about
the shameful conditions they are in. (MLK pg 261) ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ...
He compares those guaranteed to a promissory note and says "america has given the negro people a
bad check a check that has come back marked insufficient funds". (MLK pg 262) As they heard that
the people could relate to painful broken promises. Dr king used the idea of young black and white
children playing together to bring out certain emotions about children. He said "One day right there
in Alabama little black boys+girls will be able to join hands with little white boys+girls as sisters
and brothers". (MLK pg 264) Logic/logos of I Have a Dream

MLK even covers the fact that some laws are just on the surface, but unjust in how they are enforced. The example of his imprisonment proves this statement. He was arrested for parading without a permit, but this is an unjust law because it promotes segregation and denies basic constitutional rights to freedom of speech and assembly (659). He uses these soulful explanations of just and unjust laws trying to appeal to his readers' emotions, though the notion of just and unjust laws may seem logical to them as well. Just and unjust laws may be considered logical evidence as well as emotional, but Martin Luther King Jr. uses a few much better logical examples to convince the audience to see his point of view. His logical examples of moral wrongdoings include strong emotion and cold harsh facts.

In my best interpretation, MLK expresses if we allow for something to go against our Constitution in one place, rather it is from illegal acts to discrimination, we ultimately set the foundation for it to happen anywhere and to anyone. I hold MLK's statement to be true because if our society could be tolerant of injustice toward one subject, that society could be tolerant to even more important matters. Many individuals "choose to remain comfortably within the bounds of their own experience, never troubling to wonder how it would feel to have been born other than they are," stated J.K. Rowling. J.K Rowling stated something that seemed to resonate with the words of MLK's letter. MLK understood that many people did not see the injustice and instead, closed their minds and hearts to suffering that did not touch them directly. MLK reminded us that we are all united, that it is our duty and responsibility to open our minds to the injustice, to speak up and realize that "Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly." ...

  • 16. Analysis Of Martin Luther King Jr's Letter From Birmingham... The 1960's was the peak of the nonviolent civil rights movement led by Martin Luther King Junior. MLK Jr. traveled all along the South fighting against racial discrimination and equality between all races. MLK Jr uses sit ins, protests, demonstrations and marches to fight for his cause; he always stayed nonviolent even when there were police and white supremacists using violence against him. During one of his marches in Alabama, MLK Jr. was arrested, not for the first time. While in jail, MLK Jr. took the time to respond to a letter written to him by eight different religious leaders. Even though some people may argue that Martin Luther King Junior's "Letter from Birmingham Jail" is not radical, his letter is radical because he refuses to conform to the world's expectations and he expects the same from the religious leaders whom he is replying to. In "Letter from Birmingham Jail," MLK Jr. expresses his opinions on the world's expectations of him and why he cannot conform to those expectations. MLK Jr. explains that, "I am compelled to carry the gospel of freedom beyond my own town. Like Paul, I must constantly respond to the Macedonian call for aid" (MLK Jr. 221), is the reason why he is travelling to the heart of racial discrimination to protest for equal rights. MLK Jr. feels that he cannot stay in his home because there are people who cannot help themselves elsewhere. As a Christian, MLK Jr. feels like it is his responsibility to help those who cannot help themselves. While this idea was not new to the Christian community, at this time it was not ever put to use towards the Civil Rights Movement. Along with idea, MLK Jr. contradicts the world's view on tension: Just as Socrates felt that it was necessary to create in the mind so that individuals could rise from the bondage of myths and half–truths to the unfettered realm of creative analysis and objective appraisal, so must we see the need for nonviolent gadflies to create the kind of tension in society that will help men rise from the dark depths of prejudice and racism to the majestic heights of understanding and brotherhood.

So great was this emotional control that in one of their happiest days, the Election Procession, they "appeared scarcely more grave than most other communities at a period of general affliction." (Page 210) Using the Puritans as a backdrop for the novel, a society notorious for its Spartan, emotionless nature and punishment of those who are different, unique, and in any way stray from the expected, was a conscious choice by Hawthorne that allows the themes of identity and individuality to display themselves clearly in Hester and Dimmesdale. Hester, one of the principal characters of the novel, must wear a scarlet letter on her chest as a symbol of her sin and a punishment for her adultery. However, in a powerful act of defiance, Hester makes the scarlet letter a metaphorical part of her and a part of her identity, changing its symbolism to represent her experiences, despite society's initial intent of the letter as a punishment. Hester believes that it "lies not in the pleasure of the magistrates to take off this badge," when she discovers the officials had discussed ridding her of it.

This letter separates Hester from the rest of the Puritans in the town, and causes her much loneliness and suffering. In the beginning of the book, the Puritans are disgusted by Hester, and shun her.
