  • Purpose:
    -Juan Williams is a senior correspondent for National Public Radio and a political analyst for Fox News Channel.
    -Could effect his viewpoint because he generally has to keep a popular opinion to keep a good public view on himself
    -Believes not every child in America has equal opportunity to attend free public school
    -Successful in using facts to support opinion however with the author’s credibility more personal opinion should have been utilized and over 50 sources are cited for one page of writing
    -Heavy facts but never fully understand author’s viewpoint, facts are good but never analyzed

  • Audience:
    -Writing towards an audience who relies on heavy facts, most people reading this article probably already agree with his opinion
    -Author is looking for action and recognition of a problem that still exists
    -Doesn’t discuss a ton about Brown v. Board of Education so prior understanding for most is necessary
    -Author didn’t get into a ton because audience generally already has an opinion if they are reading this

  • Context:
    -I have always been in more privileged 95% white schools so I have never really seen the issues discussed in the article
    -More specific facts of specific schools and such to show how bad of a problem it really is rather than generalization

  • Sources:
    -Most sources I have ever seen in this short of a paper
    -Good utilization of facts from sources
    -Sources are appropriate and credible
    -Probably to many sources

  • Appeals:
    -No pathos
    -Author is credible
    -Little logos

  • Strength of argument:
    -Argument is clear
    -Argument is not super strong but I support it
    -Argument is supported with lots of evidence
