Anger: An American History
In Schiff's opinion editorial "Anger: An American History" (2015) New York Times she claims that America has evolved but it has not revolutionized because the same problems in America are still occurring. The author first uses examples by Ryan's quote "not what this country stands for" to show expert opinions towards her topic; she then compares old and present America using New England; and to conclude she illustrates with diction such as "Amen" to Trump's statement. Her purpose is to prove to her reader's that it may seem as a lot of change has come to America but in reality it is not that different as it was in the 17th century, and the problem's that have risen since those dates have grown instead of disappeared. She seems to have an upscale audience in mind because she uses Trump as her evidence and Trump is an advocate who doesn't support minorities.
