When a black man named Tom Robinson is accused by Bob Ewell of beating and raping his daughter Mayella, Scout and Jem’s dad Atticus, who is a lawyer, defends him. Because of this, the kids deal with a lot of hate from the townsfolk but pull through it. In Tom’s trial, we meet Mayella and Bob Ewell. Bob was the one who beat his daughter Mayella, not Tom. Tom is accused anyway, however, because of his race.
This quote relates to discrimination of race which leads to unfair society because the trial hasn't started and Cecil Jacobs and the townsfolk already believe that Tom Robinson is guilty even though there is no evidence to suggest that he is guilty of the crimes placed against him. People are basing their opinion on their own racial prejudices/discriminatory, and are assuming that because he is a black person that he committed the act, although no evidence was presented. This leads to an unfair society because the towns folk do not know the full detail of the case and are leaning toward the Ewells side due to the fact Tom Robinson is a black man living in a white man’s world where his words and his side of the story is not heard because he’s black. Another reason why that discrimination of race can lead to unfair society directly leads to Tom Robinson for example Uncle Jack states: “The only thing we’ve got is a black man’s word against the Ewells’. The evidence boils down to you Did-I-didn’t.
Racial profiling is a positive thing. Racial profiling is a practice used by law enforcement officials to target individuals and groups of people who are suspicious of crimes based on their ethnicity. Racial profiling should be allowed for the police to use because it is easier for them to track down criminals, to prevent crimes from happening and to create a safer place. Racial profiling should be allowed for the police to use because it is easier to prevent crimes from happening. Judging someone based on the way they look is never good but in this case it is because a suspicious looking black man could be taken in by the police for questioning on gang violence and that would help prevent some crimes.
For one, Bob Ewell’s family name is low in the social hierarchy. His family isn’t reputable. In addition, he is known to abuse alcohol which causes him to act irrational. Therefore, these factors could lead to Bob Ewell accusing an innocent black man, Tom Robinson of raping his daughter. Meanwhile, the evidence shows that himself was committing these bad crimes to his very own daughter.
Another disorder relating to him is borderline. He had very unstable relationships, starting with his father-son affair. Also, his wife had divorced him and his relationships were short term and very meaningless. He was very impulsive with his actions and was unpredictable with his sexual behaviors, considering he managed to rape 33 people. John Gacy was organized, which shocked many on their psychoanalysis of the crazed killer.
Like his health. His privacy. His integrity. His basic human rights as a citizen of the United States. Once a black man is sent to jail for a low-level, nonviolent crime, such as drug possession, the system is set up so that it is easier to retire back into one’s so-called criminal ways.
In particular, Sonny felt hopeless and trapped because of what he saw and experienced living the projects. The raw honesty of his feelings further draws in the audience. Also, there is even specific a part in the story where the narrator's mother rehashes the story of how her husband lost his brother due to racism. "They was all drunk, and when they seen your father's brother they let out a great whoop and holler and they aimed the car straight at him" (Baldwin 9). The mother struggles with her words as she tells her son how a group of drunken white men purposely runs over her brother in law.
Juror #3 mixed his personal conflicts with his son running away from home to the young man accused of hurting his father. His assumption was that young men who don't get along with their fathers might go as far as to kill him. Which is a very informal practice in a small group setting. Another incident of a informal role is to not provide the evidence first hand how can a room full of jurors decide the fate of somebody when they don't have precise evidence to incriminate him. Other jurors based the fact that the accused lived in a slum and that slum residents are delinquents by nature.
From his parents, he barely gained the warmth of being in a complete family. As Ponyboy said, “His father was always beating him up, and his mother ignored him, except when she was hacked off at something, and then you could hear her yelling at him clearly down at our house. He hates that worse than getting whipped…If it hadn’t been for the gang, Johnny would never have known what love and affection are” (Hinton P.12), we can clearly known that Johnny’s parents were extraordinarily violent to Johnny. Due to the charac- teristic of Johnny’s father, the hereditary gene of violence affected fixed some of Johnny’s personal- ity. Also, Johnny was only the one who serves as a vent to his parents’ anger.
Celie's father (Pa), is not only verbally abusive, but also physically abusive, “He beat me for dressing trampy but he do it to me anyway.” (6). Pa beat Celie for the way that she dressed, but he also beat her for no reason at all. During this time in history, it was very common to beat your children or your wife, even though it was made illegal in 1920. Physical abuse is seen throughout the novel and is inflicted on Celie by both her father and husband Mr._____. In 2018, physical abuse is “hidden”, but it is present in such large numbers especially in children, “Children are suffering from a hidden epidemic of child abuse and neglect… Every year more than 3.6 million referrals are made to child protection agencies…” (childhelp).
