It’s a deliberative speech because the purpose of the speech is to consider political questions and consider the future of The United States of America.
Her focus is to convince the audience to take action at the next election. Michelle Obama’s intention is to persuade the American citizens based on the arguments put forward.
The speech is with the intent to persuade the listener to vote for Joe Biden, instead of current president Donald Trump “we have got to vote for Joe Biden like our lives depend on it.”1
The current American President Donald Trump and the racism debate is two very discussed topics in the media.
She purposely chose these main topics because the whole audience can relate to her point of view. It quite controversial that she in a political speech talk about the murders of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor “And here at home, as George Floyd
Breonna Taylor, and a never-ending list of innocent people of color continue to be murdered”6 The two individuals were murdered at an earlier point of time this year.
Both murders were caused by police brutality which is the main reason why the two murders are heavily discussed.
Americans have strong feelings about George Floyds case and when Michelle Obama uses his name in her speech, she is attracting a bunch of attention.
