The mobs were verbally and physically violent towards the Freedom Riders more than a few times while their movement went on.

This was a downfall because they were trapped and injured, not being able to move on in their movement. The “MLKJ Research and Education Institute” stated that, “[…] from the attack of Lewis and another rider, the arrest of one participant attracted media coverage.” (MLKJ 1). Their arrival in South Carolina brought an impact on their movement; it began to be shown from each state. As the Freedom Riders rode into Alabama, a furious mob crowded the Greyhound bus and sent it into flames without care for the people inside. The mob surrounded the bus and locked them inside. In Carmichael Stokleys “Freedom Riders”, she states that the Freedom Riders continued to fight for their rights as the bus was set on flames luckily, “ […] the passengers managed to escape[…]” (“Freedom Riders” 1).

Passion is a fundamental aspect of speeches and it comes through the sustained use language techniques, which Martin Luther King Jr explored in his ‘I have a dream’ speech. MLKJ was a passionate leader and a civil rights activist who pushed for racial equality in America in 1963.King’s lavish use of metaphors such as ‘America has given the Negro people a bad check which has come back marked insufficient funds’ which signifies how America has overlooked the Negros, is a clear representation of how distinctive voices need great ideas. One of the key ideas King proposed was racial discrimination for instance ‘the Negro is still languishing in the corners of American society and finds himself an exile in his own land’ portrays the white people’s disclaim towards the Negros.Another strong metaphor are ‘slaves’ for example,’ I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia the sons of former slaves and......
