It all started when a white woman, Fanny Taylor, claimed she was raped by a black man in her home in a nearby community. Either way, people began to believe her story even though their was no evidence to prove her claim. They started to suspect that Jesse Hunter, a recently escaped black convict, committed the crime and that he was somewhere hiding the the
Tom was accused of raping a white woman who was Mayella Ewell, Mayella said he raped her while he was helping her with chores. She later on tells the readers that it was false allegations. The reason why she didn 't tell the truth at her first trial was because, Mayella was afraid of being embarrassed because she kissed a black male. She rather have an innocent man get charged with a crime than that. “However, Robinson was transferred from the state prison to Maycomb 's county jail on Saturday, two days before he stood trial on Monday, and Atticus had to defend him against a lynch mob”.
Injustice is demonstrated in the article from National Geographic when Victoria, a teenager who is abducted by Serbian men and is forced to do things against her will for years, doesn’t receive any help until she takes matters into her own hands and escapes. In the text it says, “They led her on foot into Serbia and raped her, telling her that she would be killed if she resisted… was bought and sold by different brothel owners ten times over.” When speaking of her journey, Victoria says, “Banja Luka, was the worst- all the customers were cops” (Cockburn 2). This happens for years until she finally has a chance to escape whilst being four months pregnant and can seek the help she needs. It’s clear that nobody bothered to help her, seeing as many of her customers were cops, the very people who are supposed to prevent things like this. A very similar thing happens in To Kill a Mockingbird, when Bob Ewell accuses Tom Robinson of raping his daughter Mayella, but Atticus proves that it was most likely Bob who did it.
Even worse the officials claimed that his father had committed suicide, which prevented his family from inheriting the life insurance money. Furthermore, in the midst of all this happening to young Malcolm his mother began to go crazy and as a consequence, she got sent to a mental hospital. Americans often portray heroes to be flawless, but truth be told Malcolm X’s actions and life will reveal the contrary. He was a thief, drug dealer, racist, gambler, pimp, and took part of racketing. Some
Emmett Till’s story and Tom’s story are very much similar and different at the same time. Emmett Till’s story is real and it actually happened in real life, but Tom’s story was not real even though it might have seemed real though the book. Tom Robinson’s story was sad to read in the book, even though it was not real. His story was being falsely accused for assault and rape of his owners wife. The part that made me mad was when the husband did that to his wife, and blamed it on him, because he was black.
From this context in the story, you as the reader can conclude that she probably doesn’t have many friends to keep her company. The fact that she was raped by her own father and still tried to protect him is very disturbing. From this you can infer that she is a weak human being with no social standard for herself. She even blames the crime on an innocent
The question we all ask ourselves is, Why did Jack the ripper only kill woman? Well, according to Cornwell's theory, Walter Sickert went through rough times when he was a kid. He had to go through a series of painful operations for a fistula of the penis. All of this had scarred him for life and emotionally left him with a hatred towards women. What he went through as a kid can link to the reasons why Jack the ripper had such an obsession with killing woman who were prostitutes.

Pecol’as father sexually abuses her. Not once, but twice does her rape her - first while she’s washing by the sink and later when she was lounging on the couch. The reason as to why I believe this is such an important and monumental part of the story is because after the rape, Pecola exemplify the ugliness of self-hatred in the PoC community. She moves with her mother to the outskirts of town, illustrating symbolically how the community has pushed her to the brinks of

Andy Smith! I heard so many bad things about that dude and I mean like perverted things. I heard that one time he got a girl--a year younger than me-- pregnant and made the girl have an abortion. Right now, I 'm hoping Luke would use his overprotective brother attitude to keep Andy from being my babysitter.
I think it is a prime example of one of the “not-so-nice” bible stories that is often overlooked. I was shocked that the elderly man offered the concubine to the men of the town to be raped. Was not she his guest also? I was also shocked that the tribe kidnapped the six hundred women, treating the women as mere objects for repopulation. This story seems so outrageous and archaic.
