Aristotle’s Rhetorical Appeals- “Rap Lyrics on Trial” What is the author’s claim: SHOULD rap lyrics be used in court as evidence of a crime? Rhetorical Appeal Textual evidence How it is Meant to Affect the Audience Ethos “To address this question, Stuart Fischoff, a psychologist at California State University, Los Angeles, conducted a study in the late 1990s to measure the impact of gangsta rap lyrics on juries. Participants were given basic biographical information about a hypothetical 18-year-old black male, but only some were shown a set of his violent, sexually explicit rap lyrics. Those who read the lyrics were significantly more likely to believe the man was capable of committing a murder than those who did not.” This shows ethics in the situation because it used an expert at a university to analyze it. Its taking something 2 steps past the normal to look at it more critically on a deeper level.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
