Richard Krishnan Engl1A, Sec 4 Due: October 9, 2007 “Just Walk On By” Summary and Response 1. What is Staple’s thesis? Does he state it or imply it? a. His thesis is that African American men are automatically prejudged to be threatening and are therefore avoided in the streets. This is implied. 2. Does Staples use logic, emotion, or a combination of the two to appeal to his readers? How appropriate is his strategy? a. He uses both logic and emotion, which is appropriate because it’s a double attack to make readers feel bad about what is going on. 3. What preconceptions does Staples assume his audience has? How does he challenge these preconceptions? a. He assumes the audience has the same notions as the people he encounters on the street and he challenges these by proving that he is not one of the “thugs” to fear. 4. What is Staples trying to accomplish with his first sentence? Do you think he succeeds? Why or why not?

    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.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
