Speeches for Equality

Good Essays
Speeches for Equality Martin Luther King Junior announces that the “bank of Justice is bankrupt” in his I have a dream speech given in 1963. When he talks of how the check of justice is no longer handed to people whom share his opinion, I think that he is telling everyone that there should be a promise of equality in this nation; a promise to help the bank of Justice bring back checks and money for everyone. His persistency of revolts and boycotts were to bring a point of view hidden y the prejudice faults of our nation. But when America still didn’t take their hints, King uses a metaphor to bring more attention to his goals. “Whirlwinds of revolt will continue to shake the foundations of our nations until the brightest day of justice emerges.” It add to the speech by emphasizing the struggles towards freedom and follows the promises of a better democracy where everyone can be luxuriously treated to the same rights. Nelson Mandela speech gives hope to his people and to the countries around the world with a statement that connects Africa’s people with its land.“Never, never and never again shall it be that this beautiful land will again experience the oppression of one by another and suffer the indignity of being the skunk of the world." The metaphor means that segregation and inequality will never ruin Africa’s land; their culture. “The time for the healing of the wounds has come.” Mandela speaks of fixing what never should have happened.
In both speeches of leaders who helped close the gaps of racism and sexism, they both use repetition to earn the ears of who heard each problem. King emphasizes “I have a dream” in his speech by repeating it when he lists his goals for America; the goals of many of which he represents. Nelson stresses “The time” and “The moment” as a way to bring out what needs to be done immediately.
MJK was an influential man that many had looking up too. his courage that gave him his power to stand up against racism even when beatings
