In David Walker’s Appeal to the Coloured Citizens of the World the message that he wants to spread is abolitionism. However, his message is one that has been pushed a bit further than where the majority of the movement had been with in its overall goals. Considering that the abolitionist movement was considered drastic in the new views on ending slavery, Walker’s Appeal in comparison would seem even more so due to his sense of urgency and belief that peaceful means were not the way to achieve emancipation. According to him, it would never happen otherwise. While Walker does share some basic tenets with the mainstream abolition movement, he expresses his own ideas about what is actually required to live in a free nation, views that were most likely seen as too extreme and the solution unwelcome.

David Walker was an abolitionist, orator, and author of David Walker's Appeal. Although David Walker's father, who died before his birth, was enslaved, his mother was a free woman; thus, when he was born in Wilmington, North Carolina, in September 1785, David Walker was also free, following the “condition” of his mother as prescribed by southern laws regulating slavery. Little is known about Walker's early life. He traveled widely in the South and probably spent time in Philadelphia. He developed early on an intense and abiding hatred of slavery, the result apparently of his travels and his firsthand knowledge of slavery.
David Walker, the author of the pamphlet -Appeal- was a black man who was born around 1796-1797 in Wilmington, North Carolina. His father was a slave, whereas his mother was a free black woman. As the law at the time demanded, the child of a free woman was automatically a free man; however, Walker lifted the veil of injustice and tyranny that covered the blacks for so long who had became servile and mentally dead. Having being told to whip his own mother to her death was one of the life changing events that fashioned the man he became. After he grew, he moved over to Boston where he started a successful thrift store, having associated himself with various prominent black activists, he became a major spokesperson in the Freedom’s Journal by the end of 1828. By September 28th 1829 he published his Appeal, which comprised of a preamble and four articles namely; Our Wretchedness in Consequence of Slavery, Of Ignorance, Of the Preachers of the Religion of Jesus Christ, and Of Colonizing plan. The primary target was for the black communities that resided in the south, where slavery was of the worst condition. Walker was determined to wake up the black men and women of the society, who he believed had succumbed to the pitiful life of ignorance,

Slave owners kept their slaves uneducated in order to keep them oppressed. Slave owners felt that educating a slave would be a danger to them and their way of life. They believed that an educated slave would be able to realize that slavery was unjustified and fight back, even though most slaves already knew what was being done to them was wrong. In Walker's Appeal, in Four Articles; Together with a Preamble, to the Coloured Citizens of the World, pg. 2, David Walker states, “A law has recently passed the Legislature of this republican State (Georgia) prohibiting all free or slave persons of colour, from learning to read or write; another law has passed the republican House of Delegates, (but not the Senate) in Virginia, to prohibit all persons of colour, (free and slave) from learning to read or write, and even to hinder them
“I would sometimes go with mother to her office and Mme. Walker was my great-great-grandmother, but she was this larger than life figure. The silverware that we used everyday, when I was growing up, had her monogram and our china, for special occasions, had belonged to her. We had this big, beautiful, silver punch bowl that my mother made eggnog in, every year at Christmas time. So, I knew little things about Mme. Walker and obviously the business was still there, but I really more interested in her daughter, my namesake, A'Lelia Walker, who was part of the Harlem Renaissance, so I really did some of my first writing about her daughter, A'Lelia Walker. Then, when I was in graduate school at Columbia University in

While men like those above saw nothing wrong with the institution of slavery abolitionists held completely different views. They believed slavery had no place in America or anywhere else. An abolitionist named David Walker who was the author of “David Walker’s Appeal was an African American man who wanted all men to be treated equal regardless of skin color. In his work, he speaks about how slaves felt trapped by racism. They would rather be put to death then be forced into slavery. He couldn’t understand why white people called slaves ungrateful, what did they have to be grateful for since whites were constantly mistreating and abusing them. Throughout the rest of his paper he questions what gives white people the right to treat African Americans

Contradictions, in reference to cultures and their ideological formations, are the differences between hegemonic ideas presented by the dominant group(s) and the reality of what occurs in society. During the era of slavery in United States history, contradictions about slavery abounded, which lead writers like David Walker to highlight them in order to bring about social change. Walker, in his Appeal to the Colored Citizens of the World, writes to an audience of black slaves in an attempt to restructure society through black solidarity, and proposes quick action, as he believed that the expansion of cotton-farming onto newly-acquired Native American land would further entrench slavery as an American institution.

It would be better if the author can explain Body Mass Index more, since I don’t really understand what does “BMI over 25 and BMI OVER 30” means. Then the author explains three of many reasons why many American are obsessed. The first reason is that people are more likely to eat unhealthy foods. The author makes two very good quotes here from scholar source, but it would be better if the author can analyze these quotes more or gave an example. The second reason I think is that it is more profitable if the producer produces unhealthy food. The author demonstrates his argument with a graph, which shows the
