He also made sure that these black soldiers had equal pay and treated as well as the white soldiers. The way that people treated black soldiers was absurd to Douglass.

In the novel, the youth usually have a more rose-colored and ideal view of the world, while the adults have a more cynical and prejudiced worldview. Throughout the text, Harper Lee displays the progression of youthful naivete into mature knowledge by showing the various perspectives and reactions of each of the novel’s youngsters to the many racial injustices within their community. Despite Dill’s young age, his perspective of the court proceedings shows that he clearly understands right from wrong, suggesting he still believes that humans are innately good. After Dill
It may not be everywhere, but in many instances blacks fight over things that are irrelevant in the time we are living. Their eyes could be focused on vital things of life and the life to come, yet they continue to walk down the path that whties have led us to. Another issue that arises from slavery and Willie Lynch’s speech is self-hatred. Many African Americans have grown to hate “skin that they are in”. This causes them to continuously strive to be something that they are not.
Most people try to have good morals, adults trying to raise kids are a perfect example. That's exactly what Atticus is doing in the novel To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee. There are many instances where Atticus is showing extraordinary morals for himself and his family. Some would be dealing with hate the right way, another would be representing a black man in a time where segregation is very alive, lastly is making sure his family is religious. Its very clear that all of these traits/morlas are extremely important to Atticus.
Atticus is intelligent because he's a lawyer which he says “ every lawyer gets at least one case”. He can read really well and he's very smart. Being non racist or not racist is something a lot of people weren't back then but Atticus wasn't and was a good man for it. He defended a black man because he's a lawyer and wanted to defend an innocent man. A lot of people thought he was going to be a bad man because he was defending a colored man.
Once you learn more about August you can understand why he thinks the way he does. Once you know how connected and personal he takes his work you can see why he doesn’t agree with colorblind casting and why I agree with him. Having a different ethnicity on stage can take away from the plays integrity and lesson. Imagine if Mulan or Pocahontas were played by different ethnicities or even if Martin Luther King was played by a white man in The Mountaintop by Katori Hill.

This is true for many slaves back then. They view their master as high superiority and don’t dare to disobey. Even when Alfred offered Georges freedom, he refused. Many slaves did not want freedom because they feared the outside world would be worse and they were bought up to think they are servants of
Griffin begins to alternate between black and white, visiting the same people under different faces. His findings are just what he imagined they would be. The same white people that treated him with contempt and violence before as a black man, now under white face treated him with kindness and generosity. They were respectful and unbiased. The blacks that welcomed him as a black man, of course, treated him with distrust and distain as a white man.
In this way, Jim is an individual person to Huck. Furthermore, Huck is a person who hates the society as an authority and pursues freedom. He sees no reason to prevent Jim from pursuing his own freedom. So even when he knows he would be punished for hiding a black slave, he still lies to the people who go after the running away slaves that Jim is his father with chickenpox. Another example is that in the group of Huck, Tom and Jim, Tom to some extent serves as the authority.
She could not do this alone though she had Jem read to her every day just to distract her mind from thinking of morphine. This next quote from “If’ says “ If you can trust yourself when all men doubt yourself.” Atticus trust himself to get Tom a fair trial even if he is black, he knew it was going to be hard but he has to do it for himself. Like the quote said though everyone else has no hope that Tom was going to win the trial, but since he trust in Atticus to do the best of his ability to win the trial for him Do you see how it feels like “If” and To Kill A Mockingbird were written by the same person it is crazy how close they are.
