Right from the moment of her birth, she was discriminated upon by the members of her tribe. This is due to her mother and twin brother died during the delivery, leaving Paikea as the unfavorable child to her grandfather Koro. This emphasizes the dislike Koro has for her because she survived over her brother, who would have become chief after Porourangi. When Porourangi told him his wife had given birth to a girl, Koro was disgusted. He announced he “would have nothing to do with her” because “she has broken the male line of descent.”Koro’s reaction to Paikea’s birth clearly demonstrated his discrimination towards females.
There were rumors about Larry and his playboy nature, but Antonia choose to see the good in him and was even prepared to be married to a man who did not care as deeply for her as she believed. “The trouble with me was, Jim, I never could believe harm of anybody I loved” (5.1.189). Antonia says this to Jim as they are looking back on their lives as adolescents which proves how she learned from her previous experiences not to instantly be so trusting of everybody she meets. In a more positive sense, Antonia’s optimism enabled her to be accepting of what she had, and never wish for more. Unlike her acquisitive mother, Antonia was always content with her life on the farm and never felt it necessary to beg and want what other people have.
I just hated Bill, I did not like how he reacted in various situations throughout the film. He created bigger obstacles for himself with the choices he makes, like beating up a gang member, killing the nazi supporter in his shop, and then shooting a officer. If he had made right decisions from the very beginning he would have never gotten killed. Overall I thought Bill was just a creepy and an insane guy. He had extreme metal issues, however, at the same time I also felt sorrow for him because his mental health issues is what lead him to destroy his relationship with his family, especially from his daughter, who he greatly loved.
To illustrate, the way he acts with Mary one of his supporters that work with him, even do she is a little over weight he does nothing to hurt her because he is in the need of having her on his side. But when the token doesn’t fit with his girlfriend who’s the model of I heart Huckabee’s she gets replaced with a sexier person to be keep the views of I heart Huckabee’s on the top. So in other words, as soon as his girlfriend Dawn Campbell started to change the way he was used of her, he started looking at towards her as she was his very own brother because he did not support anything that would make her un attractive to him never mind to other people around watching her and then judging him. I n conclusion, I found that the movie I heart Huckabee’s to be a great movie in which it teachers us as individuals that no matter how; we may have great intentions towards the greater good there will always forever be something to damage that stable stage in our life. No matter if we try to show the people around us good things to better their future.

Born in a low status family, she is stressed to suffer under the underestimation and disdain from other people and furthermore, her dad’s terrible treatments. Mayella tells two separated lies: one is about Tom Robinson raped her; another one is she shields her dad, which means she conceals the truth about her dad beats her. In the trial, Tom states that when Bob saw what did his daughter do to him, he savagely snaps, “you goddamn whore, I’ll kill ya” (Harper 221) to Mayella. From this quote, Bob is extremely furious with his daughter when he accidentally saw the scene. That’s because being a white, he cannot accept the thing that her daughter did.
When Scout embarrasses Walter for pouring syrup all over his food, Calpurnia punishes Scout for the disrespectful way she treated Walter. By doing this, Calpurnia ignored the social class order for she believes that ‘guests no matter who they are must be treated well’. On the other hand, when Scout wants to invite Walter Cunningham over a second time under Aunt Alexandra’s supervision, Aunt Alexandra makes it very clear that it would be an inappropriate invitation because according to the social order of Maycomb, ‘he is trash’. By Calpurnia allowing Walter to visit and Aunt Alexandra forbidding Walter to visit, the social prejudice system is made obvious. Calpurnia also allows Scout to wear overalls whereas Aunt Alexandra encourages Scout to wear dresses as it is more ladylike.
