Examples of orate in a Sentence

  1. Malachi Ezekiel Dumile:

    I wanted to get onstage and orate, without people thinking about the normal things people think about. Like girls being like,' Oh, he's sexy,' or' I don't want him, he's ugly,' and then other dudes sizing you up, a visual always brings a first impression. But if there's going to be a first impression I might as well use it to control the story. So why not do something like throw a mask on ?
