So then the cycle continues he was born to treat people racistly and badly like the way he was treated. To kill a mockingbird has the theme it is important to recognize all humans deserve respect regardless of their place society. Not all citizens of Maycomb weren't treated equally and with respect. For instance Arthur, “Boo” Radley was treated unequally and badly because no one knew about him so they began with rumors and pictured as an evil monster. Bob Ewell was born into racism and abuse and people judge him thinking he wants to do what he does but he was raised this way.
Another mockingbird in the story is Boo Radley. The children at first see him as this scary monster, but after showing them kindness the kids see him as kind hearted, and gentle. Much like a mockingbird; from that they learned just like a book, you can’t judge someone by what you hear, or see. To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee gives readers a chance to see how racism in the deep south turned into injustice and leads to the killing of innocent minorities. By a young age many were taught that killing was very bad, and that the killing of the innocent is worst, but other than that this lesson can not be taught.

Scout and Jem are continually made fun of by their peers who call them and Atticus “nigger lovers”. People who were friends now hate them(new subproof), their friends from school now make fun of them because Scout and Jem’s Father is siding with a black man on the case. Some say it was good for Scout and Jem to learn to stand up for their morals at a young age(antithesis), but it was not healthy for Scout and Jem to experience such social loss. They are impressionable children who definitely could have sided with their peers on the issue of segregation. It was Atticus’s reasoning, Calpurnia’s kindness, and the black community’s love that allowed the children to stand with them.
By this, I mean Hitler. For some people, in other words the Nazis, thought that this leader was just being kind and fair to humanity, but to others, not to say the majority, were concerned that his way of being was just a sign of evil. Moving forward, A Child Called “It” talks about the life of a child, which at a point compares to The Book Thief when narrating the stories of these two. In A Child Called “It”, there is barely a sign of kindness, but when it is present, it all ends up transmitting into a bad consequence. “It” was a kid that was taken the opportunity to even grow as one.
Race is part of the story that ties everything together. The Tom Robinson trial had a negative outcome because of race. As Atticus was defending Tom the jury would still lean towards Bob and Mayella Ewell’s side of the story, because Bob was a strong, white man and Tom is a poor, black man. Atticus Finch received a lot of hate while he was defending Tom. The people of Maycomb did not agree with a white man defending a black man.
In sealand people are very forgiving of of the sins the people make and they do not care about deformities that some people might have. However the people of waknuk are not as forgiving. Especially Joseph Storm who is david's father, who beats david when he said “I could managed it all right by myself if I’d had another hand” (26). After this statement had been said Joseph had beaten david very badly. On the other hand the people from the fringes are not forgiving of the people from waknuk because they were outcast from there.

Atticus is even getting criticized by children. Atticus is shown as a symbol in this part because he is trying to use his morals to make everyone feel happy and equal, but is hated on by people. Mockingbirds don’t mind people and try to make everyone happy, yet they are still killed by people. Both Atticus and mockingbirds are hated on by a certain set of people. Another example of Atticus being a mockingbird, but being loved by people, is when Reverend Skyes, a black man, says to Scout and Jem, “‘This church has no better friend than your daddy,’”(163).
Mayella Ewell is a girl who is facing discrimination from society while also receiving abuse from her father. She looks after her geraniums, tends to her younger brothers and sisters, and does all of the chores of the house without any help. Instead of praising her, her father Bob Ewell, regularly pummeled her. The whites want nothing to do with her due to her social position whereas the African Americans keep her distance from her because she is white. Given this, being kind and compassionate is not her strong suit.
In the book To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper lee, the characters traits are influenced by the cultural, physical, and geographical surroundings. there are many characters of whom you see this happen to but this essay will only talk about Jek Finch. Physical surroundings like living in a small town in Alabama and being in a neighborhood with a lot of black people influenced the moral traits of Jem Finch. For example Calpurnia was a black maid that basically was the mom to Jem and Scout because their mom died. Calpurnia’s skin color didn 't bother Jem so naturally, he tended to treat black men and women with the same respect as a white man or woman.
