However, it’s not the only time Harper Lee trying to present this idea. There is also a really tense scene taken place in Chapter 15, a group of white racist folks try to break in the jail and lynch Tom Robinson because he was suspected of raping Mayella Ewell, a white women. In the folks’ words “You know what we want. Get aside from the door.”The men didn’t use racist words, however, their presence and the demand to Atticus to leave already presents how strong the racism is in Maycomb.

Sula is counter foil to Eva, as she is a free, careless woman, least caring for people around her. She feels ostracized when her mother Hannah says she does not like her. The personality of Sula is best described as one whom: “lived out her days exploring her own thoughts and emotions, giving them full reign, feeling no obligation to please anybody unless their pleasure pleased her” (118). Moreover, Sula hates emotional dependence and believes that love is a distant dream, and that the hunger of the body alone needs to be quenched. She gets involved with many men least caring for them or their families.
You may be surprised by how some individuals feel angry and offended at others simply because of the pigment of their skin. These individuals let their hatred of those that are different from them control their actions to the point that they bring harm and malice upon these people. This piece of writing showcases that and also addresses how racism in Maycomb is viewed and how the people in Maycomb feel about those with different skin tones as well. There are those individuals that do not intend to be racist but the way that their society is programmed they unintentionally contribute to the racist population.

In 1955, Rosa Parks got a prominent place after refusing to give up her seat on a Montgomery bus. Her decision was momentous and it led the passengers to boycott the buses. The Rosa Park gave a new life to the civil right movement.

It was the time when the racial relations were very tense and the black Africans, white Americans, and Caucasians were struggling for the same jobs.
In To Kill A Mockingbird Mr.Ewell shows prejudice against a black man named Tom Robinson. Prejudice is frequent in the story and it is used on a innocent man. A poor white girl accuses a black man of raping her, which leads to a trial.

Well, to discriminate means to treat someone differently based on what they believe, their age, gender, who they love, even their appearance. The forms that I will be talking about are Sexism, (Prejudice actions based on gender) Racism, (Prejudice actions based on race) classism, (Prejudice actions on those of a different social class) and discrimination on those with a disability.

At last is Germany, it has its own way of racism. They don’t value the foreigners who move in their country and they even have hatred for the colored people. These were issues of some of the countries of the world where racism plays a major part, however it is an issue all over the world. Not just this, it has a huge impact on our society as well.
