In society people judge by seeing what 's on the outside and don 't know what 's happening on the inside of a person or the whole truth to something. In other words, they judge a book by it’s cover. In “To Kill A Mockingbird”, Harper Lee shows us why not to judge a book by it’s cover. Jem and Scout think Mrs.Dubose is plain mean when really she 's a morphine addict, Aunt Alexandra doesn 't see any usefulness in Calpurnia but in reality Atticus couldn 't of raised the kids the way he did without her, and everyone thinks Boo Radleys a killer when actually he just wants friends and he 's the one who saves the children. In our world today people assume that someone that looks okay on the outside is doing fine when they could be suffering in silence from bullying, and people who don’t see global warming may not consider the issues even though it is a real problem.
Atticus told Jem one day “Shoot all the bluejays you want, if you can hit 'em but remember it’s a sin to kill a mockingbird”(103). The bluejays were referring to people that harm others without any reason, basically the bullies in Maycomb. The mockingbirds refer to the people who did not do anything bad so why get them into problems without them doing anything bad. This can be better said with Jem and Scout discussing, “Why couldn’t I mash him?’ I asked. ‘Because they don’t bother you,’ Jem answered in the darkness” (273).
It is wrong to kill an innocent thing. The most obvious symbol is Boo Radley; he was accused of being an “evil being” throughout the book, but at the end we learned that he was an innocent, friendly and respectful person. At the very end of the book, Atticus asked Scout if she understood why Mr. Heck Tate said what he said. Scout replies with, “Well it’d be sort of like shootin’ a mockingbird wouldn’t it?” this meaning that if Heck Tate accused Boo Radley for murdering Bob Ewell, then an entire investigation on Boo would happen leading to Boo Radley being sent to prison. It would be “hurting
So therefore in this situation killing should be justified. A reason why george should be justified is because he says if “i was alone i could live so easy” which you never say to a guy like lennie.

In the passage, Lee argues that racism and prejudice are often due to ignorance, and that the only way to get rid of racism is to develop acceptance and understanding. After Tom Robinson is killed, Mr. Underwood compares his death to the killing of “songbirds by hunters and children.” The word “songbirds” is an obvious reference to Atticus’s lessons about mockingbirds, in which he states killing them is a sin. Killing a songbird, according to him, is a sin because such birds are innocent and do nothing but sing. Lee’s diction to shows the reader that Tom was an innocent man, killed by Maycomb’s racism and hatred. In addition, she uses the words “by hunters and children” when describing the killing of songbirds.
