Stereotypes have been a big issue, and some of the stereotypes found in this book is, Boo Radley was a crazy person, stereotypes on girls and lastly black people are not equal to white people. Firstly, an example of stereotypes in this book is all about Boo Radley. Just because he never came out and had to be taken care of by his brother everyone thought
Racial profiling can be unfair and unreasonable. It has been with us since slavery, but people have been ignoring the issue. This has become one of the biggest controversy in the world. Many individuals have been humiliated and scared off by cops. I would encourage everyone to become less judgemental.
In that time, there were many heavy social standards and one of those standards was accepting Jim Crow. One example of one person not being able to combat Jim Crow due to the social pressure was in the book To Kill A Mockingbird. One of the characters, Dolphus Raymond, liked hanging out with black people and was friends with them. He knew that there was pressure against it, so he took the cowardly way out by pretending to be drunk as an excuse to hang out with them. The fictional character of Mr. Raymond is a great embodiment of the mental state of the silent few in America that knew that Jim Crow was wrong, but didn’t have the means or willpower to end it.
Also because of all of the depression that goes on in the story and all of the depression issues that some people go to the doctor for because it is really severe. Lastly because of all of the family members the characters lose it makes me ask myself what would I do if I ever lost my mom or dad. In the book “Chicken Soup for the Girl’s Soul” the plot is the most important part of the book because there is a lot of bullying that goes on in the story and a lot of bullying goes on in the world today. Also because of all of the depression that goes on in the story and all of the depression issues that some people go to the doctor for because it is really severe. Lastly because of all of the family members the characters lose it makes me ask myself what would I do if I ever lost my mom or dad.
Scout lost her innocence when she was exposed to all the racism and hate most people of Maycomb had for her father like when all the kids at school were being mean and saying the racist things they heard they’re parents say about atticus defending Tom and her asking the question “do you defend n-word?” and Atticus explaining why he did and teaching her it isn’t okay to refer to people like that even tho she was eqivocate on the meaning of it. The next reason I have for Scout losing her innocence is when she is at the trial and she wants atticus to win “ I shut my eyes. Judge Taylor was polling the jury: guilty.... guilty.... guilty….” (pg. 282) and it turns out he loses because Tom is black and that’s when she realizes that it isn’t fair and a black person not getting a fair trial is a sham and it’s pretty reprehensible for white people to treat black people that way.
It reminds me of when Rosa Parks went to jail for refusing to move out of her seat. To Kill a Mockingbird uses lots of stereotypes, which we use a lot in society. Kids pick up things pretty fast from their parents or just a random person which may leads kids to stereotype. I would say that everyone even kids and adults judge people for their religion or what race they are. No one is innocent everyone at some point in their lives have stereotype someone or a group of people.
(Lee, 29), to show the reader he goes unnoticed, and is dirty. Scout describes Burris as, “The filthiest human I had ever seen” (Lee, 29) and describes him by saying, “His neck was dark gray, the backs of his hands were rusty, and his fingernails were black deep into the quick.” (Lee, 29). He is clearly not the most popular kid in class. He disgusts the teacher so much that sends him home stating, “Please bathe yourself before you come back tomorrow.”
In the novel To Kill A Mockingbird, Jean Louise tells Atticus about her first day of school, Mr.Finch tells her to try to think about things from the other person 's perspective—in this case, Miss Caroline. She, who was only trying to do her best in a strange place, and learning whose ways she didn’t yet understand. It started when a boy in Scout’s class, Walter Cunningham, had not brought lunch so Miss Caroline offers him a quarter to buy lunch, telling him that he can pay her back the next day. Not knowing that Walter’s family is large and poor, and that Walter will never be able to pay the teacher back or bring a lunch to school.
In To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee, in Maycomb County, there are unfair events that happen to people because of wrong things that others believe in. Since people in Maycomb County believe in those preconceived ideas, some of the characters like Walter Cunningham, the negroes, and Scout don’t get equal rights. Even if it’s the early 1930s, inequality still exists to this day: social, gender, and race/color. In To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee, readers can see that prejudice and bias creates inequality. One reason why inequality is a central problem in To Kill A Mockingbird is where you stand in the economy.
He later reveals it is only coca-cola to the children. This shocks Scout. He explains “ When I come to town. Which is seldom, if I weave a little and drink out of this sack, folks can say Dolphus Raymond’s in the clutches of whiskey- That’s why he won’t change his ways” (Lee 268).
Uncle Jake later regrets punishing Scout because she never told her side of the story. 6. Calpurnia scolds Scout for questioning Walter 's eating habits. 7. Miss Caroline told scout to stop reading with her father.
The ignorance of humans has created prejudice and brooding hate in societies. This reoccuring theme has been examined by Harper Lee in the classic To Kill A Mockingbird. Set in the late 1920, the society of Maycomb evidently showcases racial, gender-biased and social class prejudice, due to their
“Maycomb was an old town, but it was a tired old town when I first knew it.” Harper Lee had used the tragic situation of Tom Robinsons trial to explore many themes including, racism and differences in privilege. “To kill a mockingbird” written by Harper Lee explores many situations linked to the broad idea of racism throughout the systems of Maycomb and differences in privilege in many different ways. The quote that Atticus argues with explains that in Maycomb, all men and things are equal.
