What is tone.

Consider:I perceived, as I read, how the collective white man had been actually nothing but a piratical opportunist who used Faustian machinations to make his own Christianity his initial wedge in criminal conquests. First, always “religiously.” He branded “heathen” and “pagan” label upon ancient non-white cultures and civilizations. The stage thus set, he then turned upon his non-white victims his weapons of war.

Apply:Rewrite the first sentence of the Malcolm X passage to read like positive propaganda for “the collective white man.” Your sentence should have the same basic meaning as Malcolm X’s sentence, but the tone should be positive and noncritical. Comment on another person’s response about how the power words have to reveal and shape attitudes
