In searching for the killer of the previous king, Laius, Oedipus neglects to acknowledge that he could be a possible suspect, even when told that he was the murderer by esteemed prophet Tiresias.

Bob Ewell and his family does not belong neither to any of these groups. He is one of the most controversial characters, who hates both “black” and “white” people.

They would do anything to protect them, and to make them feel safe; so we should give them more credit for what they do. Don’t take dogs for granted, because they would never do that to you.

People nowadays assume things rather than actually knowing the truth. They judge people by things they hear or what they see on the outside rather than getting to know them and who they truly are on the inside.
