In this investigation, I will prove how Rosa Parks changed the civil rights movement. When she did not give up her seat on the bus for a white man on December 1, 1955, Rosa sparked the Montgomery, Alabama bus boycott that was held for 381 days. At a young age Rosa Parks was born into segregation. Rosa did not like how her people were not treated equally. When she was told to give up her seat she refused because she wanted to show that all humans are the same and should be treated fairly.
How is the racial problem of the southern states of USA in the 1930s portrayed in To Kill a Mockingbird? INTRO In the 1930s the Southern states of America suffered from a strong discrimination and racial hatred towards colored people. They had no rights, no respect and were not allowed to go places white people went. In other words they were segregated from the rest of the society. Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird is a novel that show the life of a southern state od Alabama during the “black racism” time period, where majority of the people had the mentality that (quote) with the exception of a few.
Racism. A word that people either shy away from or express in their every day lives. Predominately, the South is stigmatized as being a very racist and confederate region of America. Throughout history there have been many incidents and events that have explicably revolved around the color of your skin. The Civil War was a war based off of opposing opinions to have slaves or not between the North and the South of the United States.
Jem refuses Atticus’s pleas to bring Scout and Dill home, but Scout disassembles the mob by singling Mr. Cunningham out and speaking to him about Walter and his entailment. In this paper I will be questioning and evaluating. In the recent chapters, I have acquired two different questions about the novel To Kill A Mockingbird. My first question is why does Jem stand up to Atticus? I believe that there are multiple reasons for this.
Race used to affect every aspect of life, especially for people of color, from the way you talked to where you were able to sit. The novel, To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee has many examples of this. It takes place in a fictional part of Alabama called Maycomb County, during the Great depression. The main character and narrator is a girl named Jean Louise Finch, but most people call her Scout. She has an older brother named Jem and a father named Atticus.
As Jem and Scout start to grow up and realize the racism of their community, people like Miss Maudie, Dill, and many others that reside in Maycomb County, encounters many events that start to shape the siblings for better or worse. This novel is a tale of overcoming fear and prejudice, but it shares significant similarities to two articles: Moral Cowardice by Mark Twain and Why I Joined the Klan by C.P. Ellis. All of these written pieces display a hidden unity of themes that tie into the greater message of To Kill a Mockingbird. These themes can be extracted from different events in the novel that appear as tribulations that the siblings go through such as the incident with the violent mobs, Atticus defending Tom Robinson, or the diverse traditions of Maycomb.
Because Janie wanted to get away from Logan, she quickly decides to run away and marry Jody. At first Jody treats her wonderfully and has big ideas for their future. Soon, however, Janie realizes that Jody worries more about his reputation and ego then he does for her. He wants everything in his life to be perfect, including Janie. When Janie asks Jody if she can go to the dragging out of the mule, Jody promptly denies her because the mayor’s wife “wouldn’t be seen at uh draggin’out” (60).
Imagine one day you wake up and many of your constitutional rights, such as the right to vote, are gone. In Harper Lee’s novel, To Kill a Mockingbird, Sexism plays a huge role in many scenarios throughout the story. For example, a quote in the novel states, “ ‘Scout, i’m tellin’ you for the last time to shut your trap or go home- I declare to the lord you’re gettin more like a girl every day.’ With that, I had no option but to join them.”(Lee Pg.69). This quote represents the fear that scout shows while trying to hide her femininity. It shows that scout believes that women have a minuscule amount of power, and that she needs to act like a boy for her to even be recognized by Jem as a member of the group.
Bob Marley, a famous singer once said, “Prejudice is a chain, it can hold you. If you prejudice, you can 't move, you keep prejudice for years. You’ll never get nowhere with that.” Prejudice is shown in our everyday society and their are many reason on why prejudice is shown. In Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird, the author shows why prejudice is shown and the effects of it. The novel takes place in Alabama in the 1930s, and it is narrated by a young girl who is a tomboy.
However, in many ways, Harper Lee failed. There are still many examples of racism long after her book was written. In the article, The Need for Change, it states, “In 1957 the town of Tuskegee gerrymandered black residents outside the city limits to make them ineligible to vote.” While it is obvious that Harper Lee’s novel, To Kill a Mockingbird, made a giant impact on today’s society, recent history says that it didn’t make enough of one. Despite everything so many inspirational people have said and done throughout history, society continues to display blatant and hidden examples of racism and discrimination. It is highly controversial whether or not Harper Lee achieved her goal when writing her novel, with valid arguments on either side.

After waiting for 20 minutes she had got mad and started talking to herself in a mad way, but little did she know that Tyron was hiding behind the tree so nobody could see him.

Many people today do not like to admit the bias that underlies their reasoning. Many of these people fear Islamic Fundamentalists; however, most attacks on the United States were the effect of Political Extremists, Nationalists, and even Racial/Religious Supremacists. In Harper Lee’s novel, To Kill a Mockingbird, many of the characters in the town of “Maycomb” show the extremity of how biased they are towards white people. Throughout the novel, the reader catches a glimpse of many different types of discrimination including; racial, social status, age, gender etc..

Argumentative Essay The book To Kill a Mockingbird is based out of the town of Maycomb, Alabama. The residents in Maycomb are extremely racist and see minor inequalities as major differences and reasons to segregate. The families of Maycomb have their own hereditary social classes and are pretty much stuck in their class based on occupation and race`. People in Maycomb are born into significance or are born into less fortunate situations. Many of the characters use these social classes to boost their self esteem.
