Atticus, I’ll go next Sunday if it’s all right, can I? Cal said she’d come get me if you were off in the car.” Aunt Alexandra responds, “You may not.” (Lee 138). This quote shows racism spreading from generation to generation- as if it were
The Absence of Aunt Alexandra in the movie is major mishap on the director for she played a key role in the development of Scout as a woman. Alexandra, Veering Scout from her childish and tomboy phases drastically changed Scouts overall character in the book, but left her unabsided in the movie. Without Alexandria, Scout would have been uncontrollable and reckless; and would have never been able to behave in the Courtroom, or at Calpurnia 's Church. Another difference in the movie is the absence of Miss Maudie 's house burning down. Miss Maudie 's house burning down in the book separated Jem and Scout from Atticus late at night outside Boo Radley 's house.
Also because she is with American children and she is Mexican they want to automatically control her and they are not polite with her and the reason why she is arrested is because she was forced and obliged to take the children with her to the wedding because there were not other solutions and the parents due to the shooting were not in state and concerned of what happened at home and she just wanted to be helpful and to do not let them to anybody. When she is deported to Mexico the couple do nothing to try to help her to stay in the United-States and it is selfish because she worked for them since a very long period of time, she was really good with their children, their children really liked her and it is in a way their faults if she did that and if she is in this
Judging a book by its cover is an often used term that people use to describe a situation where many people are stereotypical. In the book To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee, a book written about racism and discrimination, is projecting this lesson. This story is written in the narrative of a woman named Scout, who tells her tale of a specific story when she was a young child. It takes place in the 1930’s in Maycomb County of Alabama, where discrimination is typical and normal for the town to do. Jem, a mysterious, curious, and maturing brother to Scout, gets fascinated by what Atticus, his father, does for a living.
Some time later, after talk about Tom Robinson’s court case has calmed down, Scout talks to Jem about something that she witnessed at school earlier that day. Her teacher Miss Gates repeatedly denounces Hitler, condemning his prejudice, but she then makes a racist comment to Miss Stephanie after school: “‘I heard her say it’s time somebody taught ‘em a lesson, they were gettin’ way above themselves, an’ the next thing they think they can do is marry us’” (331). Although Miss Gates is from Winston County, a place that tried to secede from Alabama when Alabama tried to secede from the US over slavery, she falls into the typical Maycomb mindset when she moves there as a
Not all the Same Equality is a term that is defined as “the state of being equal; correspondence in quantity, degree, value, rank, or ability” (Dictionary.com). In Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird, equality dictates how several characters are portrayed in the town of Maycomb, Alabama, at a time of racism, hate, and prejudice. Because of these topics being such an everyday obstacle for characters like Walter Cunningham Jr. and Burris Ewell, two students at the school, Boo Radley, a scared neighbor that saves a life, and Tom Robinson, a black man wrongly convicted of a crime, the idea of equality has a different effect on each character’s life. For instance, there are numerous times that equality plays a big role throughout this novel. The first time that equality plays a big part in this novel is right off the bat in Chapter 2 involving Walter Cunningham Junior.
They don 't eat up people 's gardens, don 't nest in corncribs, they don 't do one thing but sing their hearts out for us. That 's why it 's a sin to kill a mocking bird.” This is relevant to the main topic of the book, the story of how a black man gets charged with the rape of a white woman. Even though his innocence is obvious (i.e. he is the “mockingbird” of the story), it has a tragic end. The text is retold from the perspective of Jean-Louise Finch (Scout), a six-year-old who lives in the small town of Maycomb, Alabama with her older brother Jeremy and their widowed father Atticus.
The movie version of To Kill a Mockingbird combined the characters of Aunt Rachel and Miss Stephanie Crawford, who provided Jem and Scout with horrific rumors about Boo Radley. Additionally, the movie excludes Mrs. Dubose and Jem reading to her every night, which brings forth the themes of courage and forgiveness. Furthermore, the movie omits Dolphus Raymond, who is one of the examples of social injustice and help Jem and Scout understand the prejudice in Maycomb County. Regardless of the differences in each version, both, the movie and novel, portray the essential themes of people being prejudice and stereotyping people based on their race. Both versions follow the storyline of the protagonist and her brother seeing an innocent man being convicted because the jury decided to believe a white man’s lie over a black man’s
There is a mall that is about to destroy the woods, Abby and many other people of all ages are supporting them. Abby is very irresponsible, stubborn, and ignorant. The text even proves it by stating. Abby makes up lies about her family and then protests against the mall her own mom is working for. Her mom tries to give her a punishment for what she did, but in return, she yells back at her mom and talks back to her and makes her be quiet.
