Miller may seem to be foil characters and Miller is higher up in the social class, yet they both have a similar say in society due to their race and are not afraid to share their strong opinions about the conflict. Miller strongly believes that fighting would only be “throwing [their] lives away (183)” while Josh disagrees because he believes in revenge.

King begins use of this rhetorical device by stating, “We watch black men fight for equality with white men, but then we realise they would hardly live on the same block in Chicago.” By saying this King lowers the counter arguments credibility.

Atticus Finch’s views on racism are bespoke in Part I, to foreshadow what will happen at the Tom Robinson case. Atticus says, “I’m simply defending a Negro—his name’s Tom Robinson” (Lee 75). Atticus believes that he should be able to defend any man, regardless of his color. Even though, almost all of the white citizens in Maycomb do not think it is right for a white man to defend a black man, Atticus does not conform with society’s beliefs of racism. Lee’s foreshadowing, helps for the upcoming event in Part II because now the reader knows how Atticus feels about racism and steps away from the towns

He also felt that the African-American male was not on the same level of equality as him, due to color and Lincoln’s belief in the higher intelligence of whites.
