President Barack Obama delivered his speech “A More Perfect Union” during the 2008 campaign. The speech conveyed many messages about his beliefs concerning racism in America. President Obama has some great things he wants to change in our country including health care, jobs, and the school system. President Obama uses three different appeals during his speech known ethical, emotional, and logical to get his point across to the audience. I think President Obama uses all three appeals in his speech to connect with the audience in some way. Firstly, President Obama uses an ethical appeal known as ethos. An ethical appeal establishes a speaker or the writer’s credibility. He states that “I am the son of a black man from Kenya and a white woman from Kansas. I was raised with the help of a white grandfather…and a white grandmother. I am married to a black American who carries within her the blood of slaves and slave owners…I have brothers, sisters, nieces, nephews, uncles and cousins, of every race and every hue, scattered across three continents”. I agree with what President Obama has shared about how race has an impact on his life. I think he establishes himself as a man of many races who can relate to almost every race in America. By doing so he shows how he is the perfect man for the job to deal with the concerning issues on racism in America.

Secondly, President Obama uses an emotional appeal, known as pathos which connects with beliefs and feelings of the audience. He states “I can no more disown him than I can my white grandmother – a woman who helped raise me, a woman who sacrificed again and again for me, a woman who loves me as much as she loves anything in this world, but a woman who confessed her fear of black men who passed by her on the street, and who on more than one occasion has uttered racial or ethnic stereotypes that made me cringe.” President Obama gains pathos by stating how he cannot disown
