Speech Analysis: Ethos,Pathos, and Logos
To Kill a Mockingbird: Atticus Finch closing argument
She was white and she tempted a negro. She did something that in our society is unspeakable: She kissed a black man. Not an old uncle, but a strong, young negro man. No code mattered to her before she broke it, but it came crashing down on her afterwards.

This example of ethos shows the community's beliefs when it came to white and blacks during this time period.

Bill Cosby:Brown v. Board of Education Remarks
- "The church is only open on Sunday. And you can’t keep asking Jesus to ask doing things for you. You can’t keep asking that God will find a way. God is tired of you. God was there when they won all those cases -- fifty in a row. That’s where God was because these people were doing something.

Bill uses ethos by bringing aspects of religion in to his speech when talking about God and how people have faith in him but don't want to work to get what they want.

Bill Cosby:Brown v. Board of Education Remarks
- In the neighborhood that most of us grew up in, parenting is not going on.... In the old days, you couldn’t hooky school because every drawn shade was an eye. .....Parents don’t know that today. I’m talking about these people who cry when their son is standing there in an orange suit. Where were you when he was two? Where were you when he was twelve? Where were you when he was eighteen, and how come you don’t know he had a pistol?

He uses pathos by making his audience feel as though parents these days aren't worried about or pay enough attention to their children. He also makes this more evident when he states that parenting is not going on .
To Kill a Mockingbird: Atticus Finch closing argument
- I have nothing but pity in my heart for the Chief Witness for the State. She is the victim of cruel poverty and ignorance. But, my pity does not extend so far as to her putting a man's life at stake, which she has done in an effort to get rid of her own guilt. Now I say "guilt," gentlemen, because it was guilt that motivated her

Atticus says he feels pity for the woman because she had to create a lie because she broke a law,something that was forbidden at the time which is a white women and black man having contact.
To Kill a Mockingbird: Atticus Finch closing argument
- To begin with, this case should never have come to trial. The State has not produced one iota of medical evidence that the crime Tom Robinson is charged with ever took place. It has relied instead upon the testimony of two witnesses whose evidence has not only been called into serious question on cross examination, but has been flatly contradicted by the defendant.

This example of logos explains to the audience (the people in the court room) that this whole case is based on he said she said and has no evidence to convict the man except .testimony
Bill Cosby:Brown v. Board of Education Remarks
- I heard a prize fight manager say to his fellow who was losing badly, “David, listen to me. It’s not what’s he’s doing to you. It’s what you’re not doing."

This is logos because Bill Cosby uses this quote he heard to show that people believe that it's what others to do that affect them reaching their goals instead of looking at what they're not doing to achieve them.
