- Positive effects that the MBK movement has on young black males
- Why no movement for young black females
- Female figures like Oprah Winfrey, Michelle Obama and Gabrielle Union need to come together to help young black females in small communities.
1. Working Hypothesis 1:
Although there are movements for young black males such as MBK which provides guidance, our young black females need support and guidance just as much as the males.
Working Hypothesis 2:
Female leaders such as Michelle Obama, Oprah Winfrey and Gabrielle Union should step up and come together to help guide young black females to the right track to become successful.

Definition/ Classification Argument
Every community needs to have five characteristics in order to be successful in completing a common goal. The general definition of a community can be defined as a group of people living in the same place or having a particular characteristic in common. The five characteristics that are said to make a community successful consist of five different roles that need to be fulfilled in order to reach the common goal. These five roles consist of the host, facilitator, “popular one”, instigator, and the voyeur. With these roles in tact, it is definite that a community will succeed. If the three leaders, Michelle Obama, Oprah Winfrey and Gabrielle Union come together a fulfill these roles, or find the perfect candidates for these roles, young black females will find that they are on the correct path to success.
Cause/ Effect Argument
When young black males join the MBK movement, they are open to a new world. They provide guidance and hep young black men realize that there is more to this world than crime. They teach them how to provide and be respectful. Doing this, will help our community because the more males in the movement, the better the community will be. If this support was provided to young men of color years ago, it could have saved lives such as Trayvon Martin. Although the death of Trayvon Martin was unexpected, if he would have been apart of the MBK community movement that night or prior to that night, it might have changed the outcome of the night of his death.
My rebuttal argument for this topic is that most people believe that young black males are in more trouble than young black females are. Because young black males are main targets of police brutality, they should be the one’s who need to be focused on. Statistically speaking, men are more likely to end up in prison, jail or parole.
