Everyone has been a mockingbird at least once in their life. In To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee, the characters Arthur “Boo” Radley, Jeremy “Jem” Finch and Tom Robinson all represent mockingbirds in different ways. Boo represents one because he will be judged if he leaves his house. Jem is an example of one also, because he realizes as he grows up that the town he lives in is racist and judgemental. Tom is another example because the Ewells take advantage of his life to get away with their own.

Harper Lee’s novel To Kill a Mockingbird has many examples of prejudice. The prejudice presented is against people such as Tom Robinson, Atticus Finch, and Boo Radley. Each is discriminated against either because of the color of their skin, who they represent in court, or just how much they isolate themselves from the town. Harper Lee’s stance on racial prejudice is that it is a foolish practice, no matter who does it. Prejudice is a very large part of To Kill a Mockingbird.
Racial intolerance is cruel it puts other people down to make a person feel better about themselves. Although racial intolerance was abundant in the 1930’s, it is still here today, making To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee relevant to today. It still can be learnt from To Kill a Mockingbird that harming somebody because they look different is wrong and extremely mean.

Another way that this motif is used after murders is shown after Macbeth kills Macduff’s family. When Ross delivers the horrendous message, Macduff responds by saying, “What, all my pretty chickens and their dam at one fell swoop?” (IV.iii.223-224) This again shows the strong bond between Macduff and his children. It also shows that he is very hurt and may be looking for revenge.
Braxton Underwood was one of the many who despised the Negroes. According to Atticus, “‘ Braxton... despises Negroes, won’t have one near him’” (Lee 178). This disease, racism, is spreading through Maycomb.
