Remarks on the Assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr. Robert F Kennedy
Audio Speech Who is RFK?
Robert F. Kennedy was John F. Kennedys younger brother.
He was a American politician, a Democratic senator and a noted civil rights activist. He was also his brothers U.S. Attorney General.
He was shot on June 5 by Sirhan Sirhan but died on June 6. Ethos: "I had a member of my family killed, but he was killed by a white man."
This shows the African Americans that he does actually know what they are going through and that he is not just some white man off the streets talking to them about this situation.
"for those of you who are black - considering the evidence evidently is that there were white people who were responsible - you can be filled with bitterness, and with hatred, and a desire for revenge"
Here Kennedy shows how the black community is feeling and how he knows what they are going through Pathos
"So I ask you tonight to return home, to say a prayer for the family of Martin Luther King"
Here it shows how emotional this has been and how important MLK was to everyone.
Martin Luther King dedicated his life to love and to justice between fellow human beings. He died in the cause of that effort. In this difficult day, in this difficult time for the United States
Kennedy is very emotional in this, he shows how hes sad and how much he cared about MLK and what a difference he did Logos:
"let's dedicate ourselves to what the Greeks wrote so many years ago: to tame the savageness of man and make gentle the life of this world. Let us dedicate ourselves to that, and say a prayer for our country and for our people." Kennedy is showing how even though this was a tragic loss, its better to move on and hope for the best.
"We can do well in this country. We will have difficult times. We've had difficult times in the past, but we -- and we will have difficult times in the future. It is not the end of violence; it is not the end of lawlessness; and it's not the end of disorder."
This cant get anymore simple hes talking about how no matter what time period it is, there is always going to be problems. Works Cited
