In the speech, ‘The ballot or the bullet’, by Malcolm x, he claims that blacks need to exercise their rights, especially to vote, but if the government tries to prevent them from voting: violence might be necessary. Malcolm x uses emotional appeals, logical appeals, and ethical appeals to make his claim. The first device that Malcolm xuses to make his claim that “blacks need to exercise their voting right in either a peaceful or violent manner”, is by using emotional appeals. One example of this is when he states “The year when all of the white political crooks will be right back in your and my community with their false promises, building up our hopes for a letdown, with their trickery and their treachery, with their false promises …show more content…
One example of X’s use of ethical appeals is when he states, “I myself am a minister, not a christian minister, but a muslim minister; and I believe in action on all fronts by whatever means necessary.”(Paragraph 2) Malcolm X is a saying to use whatever force is necessary while fighting for freedom. Christian ministers have been fighting for black civil rights, X is a muslim minister that’s fighting for civil-rights. Malcolm x makes the audience realize that No matter what religion or even ethnicity, they need to do whatever it takes to get their rights. Another example of X’s use of ethical appeals is when he says “Let the world know how bloody his hands are, let the world know the hypocrisy that’s practiced over here. Let it be the ballot or the bullet, Let him know that it must be the ballot or the bullet.”(Paragraph 37) X wants the audience to know that the only way they can fight for their rights is either by political campaigns or violence. America’s ‘morals’ seem to be non-existent:They preach false freedom and practice Hypocrisy. Reflecting back to Franklin's “Give me liberty or give me death” , Malcolm x is basically saying the same thing when he says “The ballot or the bullet”.

A last example of X’s use of ethical appeals is when he states “All of us have suffered here, in this country, political oppression at the hands of the the white man, economic exploitation at the hands of a white man, and social degradation at the hands of the white man.”(Paragraph 3) Malcolm X wants the audience to realize that whites have done nothing but oppress the blacks and that is wrong of them to do. X also wants to make clear that racism is wrong and blacks are humans too,so they deserve their
