A famous civil rights activist, whom you may know, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr and President Lyndon B. Johnson were known for both of their speeches in which they argued about freedom and equality among all American Citizens.
The debate over freedom and equality among all American citizens lead to whether freedom is given through the law, or rather it must be demanded by the people. The U.S. is all about equality and beliefs. To begin with, freedom should be given by the law because the U.
S. was built on unity and belief that “all men are created equal”. So therefore (P.5,S.6/we shall overcome),stated that “This was the first nation in the history of the world to be founded with a purpose”. Also (P.
5,S.7) “the great phrases of that purpose still sound in every American heart, North and South: “All men are created equal”—”government by consent of the governed”—”give me liberty or give me death.” Basically with this evidence, President Johnson confirms that our country is provided with liberty and equality for all.Either you would want liberty or death/a life or death situation. The law gives us rules to follow in order to ensure that all citizens are safe. (P.
23,S1 and 2) All Americans must have the privileges of citizenship regardless of race. And they are going to have those privileges of citizenship regardless of race”. Voting will be the best way to handle this situation, but many will ask, will every citizen get to vote? Yes, every citizen will be able to vote, even the black African Americans. (P.6,S3 “We Shall Overcome”) said “Every American citizen must have an equal right to vote.
” With this evidence, the bill of rights confirms hope to all people and all races.In other words, some may feel demanding rights is better. This argument is incorrect because rights is something that should just be given to you without demanding. If we had to demand for rights there would be negative actions that the people make. Rights needs regulations so that it won’t be misinterpreted.
For example, the people who do illegal things. Also rights need to be given by law because it determines who has rights and who does not. This will make the society safer for all citizens.In conclusion, freedom should be given through the law. I know some people may disagree with my opinion, but i think it is better for the citizens. Think about the children and how they will grow up to become adults.
Your actions will affect your children later on in life. This will keep citizens safe from the harm of demanding rights. For example, when Martin Luther King had a march and many people was harmed. Freedom should be given through the law.
