City of Maycomb is a cruel and harsh place to live, due to the environment that people are racist and thinks that the white people have more power than the black people.Not getting a full equal right is not fair. During the Tom Robinson’s trial, people only said that he was guilty because he was a black man; while Ewell was white. Many black people has thought that it was unfair to not get equal rights, the white people made something called “separate but equal”. Which is impossible to be. White people thought that giving both of the race a school, but a different school with different supplies and school condition.
Black and deaf people are not all alike although sometime we are all put in groups of negative stereotypes about our culture. Growing up here in America and into my adulthood hearing and seeing negative images about my race I had a lot of self-hatred about myself and my people. From a small child up until my mid-twenty I never really thought I was pretty I wished I was light skin, I wish my hair was long and straight. I had a lot of self-hatred and pain with trying to conform to and look more mainstream-European looking this continue in to adulthood as well. When I first started wearing my hair in it’s natural state meaning no chemicals to change the texture of my hair I hated it I really felt ugly it really took time for me to love what I see in the mirror I felt isolated and so many of my friends and family told me my appears did not look professional in the work places or they would say you looked better when your hair was straight I was depressed for a long time until my hair started to grow
Most of our families ignored the female functioning and quickly hushed us whenever we inquired about our own bodies. However, we have all experienced either the negative portrayals of menopausal women in the media or the complete lack of these representations.
I believed that Whites and Blacks were equal however there were no African Americans in my grade school classes from K through ninth grade. There is truth to the assertion that parents’, relatives’ and friends’ negative reactions to people of minority races do send mixed messages to children (Sue & Sue, 2014). I recall that occasionally my father would make negative comments regarding an individual’s ethnicity which demonstrated to me that people could be judged by others based on their ethnic
In Maycomb, both white people and people of color hold animosity to each other. So the children in the town with both a white and black parent are treated differently because society can’t put them in a box “‘ They don 't belong anywhere. Colored folks won’t have 'em because they’re half white; white folks won’t have ‘em ‘cause they’re colored, so they’re in-betweens, don 't belong anywhere.’”(Lee 161) The prejudice in Maycomb is so strong that a clear line has been
I am white female and raised in the early 80’s, I went to Longwood High school and as most of us know it’s a very diverse school district. A lot of the teenager’s romantic relationship were interracial and it was pretty much expected. Other students wouldn’t think much of it because it was so common. The older generations (grandparent and parents) disliked the whole interracial couple thing because they are stuck in living the old school lifestyle which whites and blacks date/marry their own ethical race. For the most part our society is still stuck in this mind frame to this day.
In Cheryl Peck’s “Fatso”, Peck recalls that many people told her that she had no idea what it was like to be discriminated against because she is a privileged white woman. Contrary to their beliefs, Peck experienced discrimination more than most people thought. She stated that people would treat her differently because of her weight. Anyone can be discriminated against, so for someone to tell this woman that she must have never experienced it is impractical. Race and economic status are not the only characteristics that are being prejudiced

( baker) Flag football has grown over the past years. In many players eyes tackling need to be ban for the safety of our kids I the little league .

White people feel like everything is their property. Prejudice means preconceived opinion that is not based on reason or actual experience. One prejudice thing is how they say that Atticus don’t like guns, but somehow he the best shooter in Maycomb. The kid’s at Scout school were prejudice against her father calling him a “nigger lover.” Then Scout became prejudice against Atticus because she found out that he was protecting a negro. Scout also thought that Atticus didn’t do anything as an old man, she thought Atticus was lame and that he older than most of the parents.
And the jury being white means he has no chance at winning, it’s truly sad, but during the time of the trial that 's just how society works. But, nevertheless this is how the times are and a black person never really has a chance in the court system, because they weren’t treated the same as white people. Another time that it is very clear that people don’t treat Tom the same as white people is when people refer to him as a “nigger.” The first example of this is at the Finch landing on Christmas when Scout and Cousin Francis get into a fight after Francis says something to Scout about Atticus, “He’s nothin’ but a nigger-lover” (Lee 83). This quote very clearly shows that people treat Tom differently when Cousin Francis says
People are More than a Color People in the world today are often found not to get along, because of different backgrounds of ethnicity. Many people will say they dislike someone because of their personality just to hide that on the inside they really disapprove of their color. Those who conform to such idiotic thoughts based on race are the people that prevent this country from progressing due to their unwillingness to critically think wholeheartedly about significant racial issues, but choose to rely on past false perceptions without understanding the complexities of racial issues.. The story To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee conveys how social inequality, good and evil, and moral education contribute to racial stereotypes. The people of Maycomb have different social classes divided based on race and wealth.
