When Atticus had to defend Tom he also had to show the jury that Mayella was speaking lies which made him upset to do so. He knew Mayella was a victim in the situation too and did not want to hurt her more than Bob Ewell already did. Bob Ewell was a man full of evil and hatred.
The stirring use of pathos here makes the audience feel not only for him, but for all others in similar situations. Staples suggests that knowing how many people view him, as a felon, would drive anyone to insanity unless they found a way to contend.

Learning how Staples and other black men suffer will insight the audience to stop judging people in this
