Journal Entry 2 William Byun Power of Words I was not born in 1963 when Martin Luther King was writing a letter to a clergyman at a jail in Birmingham. I do not know how terrible the racial discrimination was back in those days. Nonetheless, I could sympathize with the African-Americans, reading King’s words of earnest confessions. King bemoans the black and white society. The Caucasians maltreat the African- Americans only because they have different skin color. They never associate themselves with the African-Americans. They divide public places into two regions, one white-only, and the other colored-only. For example, there were two entrances in a movie theater: “white” and “colored.” I could truly hear King lamenting. King has stimulated the sentiments in me through the use of pathos. I was moved by “a five year old son” asking his father why the Caucasians “treat colored people so mean” in a family trip of “night after night in the uncomfortable corners” of their car due to every motel’s rejection (p. 3. line 146-148).

    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.
