"these ethiopians, as black as they are; seeing they are the sons and daughters of the first adam, the brethren and sister of the last adam, and the offspring of god; they ought to be treated with a respect agreeable."
this excerpt supports all but which main idea?
a. people of african descent are not less human than whites and should be treated with respect.
b. that africans come from the area where adam and eve came from.
c. that the bible says we should love all people.
d. that everyone is a child of the same god.
i don't know if you're allowed to pick multiple answers here or what, because i believe B and C are equally incorrect.
The answer is: A. People of African descent are not less human than whites and should be treated with respect.
In this excerpt the author is showing his/her feeling about the Ethiopian black people, saying that their skin color does not affect the treatment that they should receive from the other people, that they are all the Offspring of GOD and for this reason should be treated with a Respect agreeable.
A) that people of African descent are no less human than white settlers and should be treated respectfully.
Explanation: In the given excerpt from "The Selling of Joseph" we can see the description of Ethiopians as Sons and Daughters of the First Adam, this means that it doesn't matter what color of the skin they have, all humans must be equal in rights, so the Sewall's assertion in this excerpt is that people of African descent are no less human than white settlers and should be treated respectfully.
A). That people of African descent are no less human than white settlers and should be treated respectfully.
As per the question, in the given excerpt from "The Selling of Joseph" by Samuel Sewall, the author(Sewall's) assertion is that "African people are no less human and deserve equal respect and freedom' which is reflected by his descriptions like 'they are the sons and daughters of the First Adam', 'offspring of god' and when he says ''ought to be treated with respect agreeable". The author intends to denounce the evil practice of slavery(African especially) and its after-effects in Africa. Therefore, option A is the correct answer as the author demands equal rights and respect for them.
A. Ghandi conveys his point of view in The Story of My Experiments With Truth by using figurative language to imply his perspective.
Gandhi always showed his point of view clearly and accurately with the use of denotative sense language that showed the real meaning of his words. For this reason, we can conclude that Gandhi did not use figurative language to suggest his perspective.
After some researching, I believe the best option to be the last one: Gandhi conveys his point of view about arranged marriages.
From the excerpt available in the question, we can tell Gandhi did use figurative language to convey his ideas. When he stated that Ethiopians are the sons of Adam, he meant all people are part of the same family - humankind - and deserve to be respected.
Gandhi is mostly famous around the world for his belief in non-violent resistance, which makes to second option valid.
As for the third option, in his book The Story of My Experiments With Truth, Gandhi did advocate against child marriage. Gandhi himself got married when he was only 13 and sees that fact as an atrocity.
In conclusion, the statement that does NOT align with his point of view seems to be the last one.
It asserts that African people are no less human than white settlers.
It contends that white settlers should treat African people more respectfully.
In Samuel Sewall's pamphlet "The Selling of Joseph", the author argues his case against the discriminatory act of practicing slavery. This pamphlet was also the very first anti-slavery text in New England.
As seen in the given excerpt, Sewall began to fiercely debate that the "Ethiopians, as black as they are, [are] the Sons and Daughters of the First Adam" establishing the fact that they are also a descendant of the first man on earth. And if they are from Adam, they are also the same as the whites who are also the descendant of the same Adam that God created and put in the Garden of Eden. So, the skin color of a person does not matter and it definitely does not determine what life he is to lead or be given. He also has the right to live the same life the whites live.
So, Judge Samuel Sewall's assertion and his persuasion are that the African people are the same as the white settlers and that they have the right to be treated with respect too.
That the Bible says we should love all people.
In this excerpt, the author encourages people to be respectful of Africans (in this case, particularly Ethiopians). The author tells us that African people are considered the sons and daughters of the first Adam. They are also the children of God. This implies that African people are as human and as deserving of respect and love as any other person, simply because we are all children of the same God.
