Example: What does this section from King's "I Have a Dream" speech mean?

But one hundred years later, the ***** still is not free. One hundred years later, the life of the ***** is still sadly crippled by the manacles of segregation and the chains of discrimination. One hundred years later, the ***** lives on a lonely island of poverty in the midst of a vast ocean of material prosperity. One hundred years later, the ***** is still languished in the corners of American society and finds himself an exile in his own land. And so we've come here today to dramatize a shameful condition.

In a sense we've come to our nation's capital to cash a check. When the architects of our republic wrote the magnificent words of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, they were signing a promissory note to which every American was to fall heir. This note was a promise that all men, yes, black men as well as white men, would be guaranteed the "unalienable Rights" of "Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness." It is obvious today that America has defaulted on this promissory note, insofar as her citizens of color are concerned. Instead of honoring this sacred obligation, America has given the ***** people a bad check, a check which has come back marked "insufficient funds."

It had been a little over 100 years since the Emancipation Proclamation was signed by Abraham Lincoln freeing the slaves. Dr. King was pointing out the fact that even though the slaves had been legally given freedom, in every other way, primarily financially, they were still bound in chains. Chains of poverty and isolation.

He then goes on to say that EVERY person in the United States of America was promised life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness in both the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence.

When you write a check, you are actually giving someone a promise, an I.O.U., stating that you have the money that makes that check valid. Dr. King was stating that the above documents were like a check wrote out by the founding fathers of our nation promising everything in those documents to the people of the United States of America and that the people gathered there the day of his speech were there to cash that check.

In short, Dr. King was saying that the law guaranteed equality for every person, but the law hadn't made sure that all people were given equality.

Example: 10 points - can you find these techniques in the "I have a dream" speech?

Parallelism - creating a balanced sentence by re-using the same words structure (ex. kids use violence in games, kids use violence to solve problems"

Irony- using words that contain more than one meaning to add humor or to emphasize an implied meaning under the surface. (ex. may be in the form of sarcasm or pun (play on words))

definition of important terms - providing clear defintions of significant words or ideas used in the arguement. (ex. chasm; a deep opening of the earths surface.

appeal to authority- mentioning an important event or person to lend importance or credibility to the arguement (ex. september 11th 2001 was a day americas learned they could no longer take their freedom for granted)

specific examples- using examples from history, science, literature etc. to support agruement. (ex. harry potter brought the sprt Quidditch to our minds)

Example: What are some examples of biases, fallacies, and argumentation in Luther King's "I have a dream" speech?

I am having trouble identifying bias statements used by King in his speech. Also I have not understood any fallacies that he may have used and argumentation. I already have found rhetorical devices that I need to identify. I would appreciate any help with finding anything bias in the "I have a Dream" speech and fallacies. Thank you.

Example: MLK "I Have A Dream" Speech Question?


We had to read Martin Luther King Jr's "I Have a Dream" Speech in English, and there was a metaphor that he had a whole paragraph on that I didn't really understand very well. Can anyone help me figure out what it means please?

"*****In a sense we have come to our nation's capital to cash a check.*****When the architects of our republic wrote the magnificent words of the Constitution and the declaration of Independence, they were signing a promissory note to which every American was to fall heir. This note was a promise that all men would be guaranteed the inalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness."

The part with the stars around is the part I don't get. I understand the rest of the metaphor, but what is the 'check' ? is it their freedom?

thank you if you can help : )

Example: What was full of Nelson Mandela's speech..."i have a dream..." can you carry on?

Example: Floyd Mayweather Jnr' "I Have A Dream Speech"?

I Have A Dream
by Floyd Mayweather Jnr

I am happy to join with you today in what will go down as the greatest demonstration of arrogance, cowardliness, and incivility in the history of boxing.

Not so long ago, I had the opportunity to become the greatest boxer of all time by fighting the current best pound for pound boxer in the world, but squandered it with my travesty of demanding an unprecedented drug test from him.

So, I have come here today to dramatize a shameful condition. In a sense you have come to cash a check. When my henchmen drafted the magnificent words on that fight contract, we were signing a promissory note to which every boxing fans was to fall heir. This note was a promise that all fans would be guaranteed the fight of the century.

But, it is obvious today that my cohorts and I have defaulted on this promissory note. Instead of honoring this sacred obligation, I have given the boxing fans a bad check, a check which has come back marked "insufficient funds." I must admit, I failed to gather courage sufficient enough to fight the warrior that has engulfed the entire boxing community with his outstanding performance in and out of the ring.

It would be fatal for the boxing nation to overlook the urgency of the moment. This frigid winter of the boxing fans' legitimate discontent will not pass until I fight the "The Pac Storm". The whirlwinds of revolt will continue to shake the foundations of boxing until the day I fight the man.

I have come to realize that to be great, I have to fight the great. I cannot walk alone. I will not seek to satisfy my thirst for greatness by drinking from the cup of fearfulness and arrogance.

Therefore, I say to you today, my friends, in the process of gaining my rightful place in boxing history, I am fighting the #1 Pound for Pound fighter in the world --- myself. In order to conquer that demon with a "0" mark on its head, I am announcing my retirement. I have come to realize that the only brave thing for me to do, is run.

So even though I will face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in our family of crooks.

I have a dream that one day boxing will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: "We hold these truths to be self-evident: that Money Mayweather is the greatest boxer of all time; greater than Ali or Leonard."

I have a dream today. I have a dream that I am whipping that punk *** Manny Pacquiao.

This is my hope. This is the faith that I go back to my Las Vegas mansion with. With this faith I will be able to transform the jangling discords of our family into a beautiful symphony of ganghood. With this faith we will be able to work together, to do drugs together, to beat women together, to go to jail together, to stand up for incivility together, knowing that we will be free one day.

And for boxing to be once again a great sport, this must become true. And for this to become true, I entreat all americans to support me just as they have supported our brave american troops overseas. And when this happens, we will be able to speed up that day when all boxing fans will be able to join hands and sing Free at last!

Free from my obligations to the fans!

Free from Pacquiao's wrath!

Free from fear!

Thank Money almighty, I am free at last!

Example: Does someone understand short sales in realestate?

We placed a bid for house on a short sale but I want to know what the chances are that the bank will choose us to sell too. The house was listed at 350K and we bid $365K as that is what we can afford. Our credit is excellent, my husband and I have stable jobs, we are pre-approved and have 45K in the bank and are willing to put down 20%. This house has been listed since August. They did a drive by BPO (if anyone knows what this means, please let me know) and are waiting for the appraiser to come do the appraisal. What would be a sure way of securing this property? This is my dream home. I just couldn't afford to pay anymore. It looks like the median price is about $360K in this are. Any short sale experts that want to give me some insider tips?
