Example 1: Quote from Frederick Douglass "Narrative of the life of Frederick Douglass": "We were all ranked together at the valuation. Men and women, old and young, married and single, were ranked with horses, sheep, and swine. There were horses and men, cattle and women, pigs and children, all holding the same rank in the scale of being, and were all subjected to the same narrow examination. Silvery-headed age and sprightly youth, maids and matrons, had to undergo the same indelicate inspection".
Contemporary Text: Micheal Jackson's "Black or White" https://youtu.be/tyBs6-cmFvQ " And I told about equality an its true either you're wrong or you're right".
Analysis of passage: Here Douglass"'s description clearly shows the ranking of valuation. He's making this description clear to fully emphasis on the the treating of slavery as a whole. It strictly shows the immoral dehumanizing imagery that one may have not experienced, but can understand the horrific events that took place to those that lived through it.
Analysis of contemporary text: Micheal Jackson's song basically points about that " When it comes to equality you're either wrong or right" I really took a liking to this. Mainly because there is always going to be a wrong or right in every situation. He also goes into talk about how it doesn't matter if you're black or white. This went right along with what I was talking about. It shouldn't matter the color of our skin to decided if we should be equal.
