The court won't hear his side they think he is lying because Tom is black. 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.
Therefore, they act out and hurt their classmates. Because they aren’t engaged in their everyday text, any little thing that is bothering them makes them become fed up leading them to act out towards another classmate. In addition, in the essay “Still Separate, Still Unequal,” a working class students believes that her race isn’t worth anything. Therefore damaging her emotionally because she believes that if everyone that is a part of her race were to disappear, nobody would care, they would simply be relieved that they are gone. They believe to be worthless.
She tried to be a teacher,but since Charleston did not hire african americans to teach it`s public schools,so instead she became a teacher at South Carolina`s Johns Island in 1916. In 1919,she returned to Charleston to teach at Avery Institude. She joined the NAACP trying to get afriacan american teachers hierd in the city. After getting signatures in her favor,she helped
Mayella Ewell is a girl who is facing discrimination from society while also receiving abuse from her father. She looks after her geraniums, tends to her younger brothers and sisters, and does all of the chores of the house without any help. Instead of praising her, her father Bob Ewell, regularly pummeled her. The whites want nothing to do with her due to her social position whereas the African Americans keep her distance from her because she is white. Given this, being kind and compassionate is not her strong suit.
But, as it turns out, she is telling the truth, and this just sickens me “‘You’re lying, you don’t remember’ cried the children” (2). That quote was spoken by the children in class as she told of the poem she wrote, and told them how great it was. But nobody believed her, so they immediately assumed she was lying and tossed her into the closet. They did not know the whole story because they were blindsided by their hatred and jealousy. Unfortunately, though, bullies do similar things in the real world, and they, too, don’t see the whole picture, similar to William, one of the classmates who lead the mob of bullying
Ms. Caroline Fisher has a tone that Scouts ignorant and just needs to be quiet. But, Scout is confused and a bit annoyed because she had been able to read the alphabet, mobile register, and my first reader and the teacher told her that it was bad. You can tell from the quote neither of them is happy and it shows what kind of a teacher she is. Ms. Caroline in the story has a very uptight personality and is not used to a place like Maycomb where everything 's
In the words of David Gemmell, “there is evil is all of us, and it is the mark of a man how he defies the evil within.” The beast in the novel starts as a symbol of fear and something that was ignored but ends up creating chaos and representing evil. In William Golding 's, Lord of the Flies, the boys making fun of the little boy for being scared of the beastie and the boys doubting Sam and Eric, Simons hallucination, and Simon 's death are evidence that show the evil and ignorance in the boys. There are many signs of ignorance towards the beast in the novel. One example of ignorance towards the beast is when the boys made fun of the little boy for being scared of the beast. When the little boy brought up the beast the first time, the older boys, “laughed and cheered,” (Golding.
Interpretation: Tom was wrapped up in evil and was misjudged harshly by his skin color and was “shot down” like a mockingbird by racism. C. In the end, Tom was not respected or treated right and as a result, he was killed or “shot like a mockingbird.” 1. Primary Evidence: Tom tried to escape from jail and a policeman decided instead of stopping him that he should just shoot Tom (Lee 235). 2. It is said that it is a “sin to kill a mockingbird”, so this situation shows that the killing of innocent Tom was a not right.
For example, the jury in Tom Robinson’s trial deems Robinson to be guilty even though he is innocent. This decision is influenced by society’s racial ignorance. Dolphus Raymond also makes the important decision to pretend that he is a drunk because of society’s racist beliefs. Finally, Bob Ewell decides to attack Scout and Jem because he is ignorant to the fact that blacks and whites are equal. The racial ignorance seen in To Kill A Mockingbird is similar to the racial ignorance seen today.
Cisneros is not the only individual that has encountered a teacher that improperly treats students. Dick Gregory shares his account as a young student in “Shame.” Gregory was distinguished in front of the whole class, by his teacher, because she believed that his father had no money and Gregory was lying, being a poor, black boy. He recalls thinking “I guess she couldn’t see a kid who made noises because he wanted someone to know he was there” (Gregory). Children seek attention and acceptance from teachers, not bullying and diminishment. Cisneros and Gregory will be scarred by the fact that their teachers thought so low of them, they received no respect.
