Bob testified accusing Tom of rape, but there was a lot of evidence in the sheriff's testimony to prove that Bob was lying in his testimony, like how the sheriff said that when he heard about Bob's daughter. Bob was expected and sounded happy about it. This evidence shows that Tom is the mockingbird. His innocence is starting to be destroyed, not just by Bob but the jury, and all the white people that are just stereotyping Tom because of his color. In this next quote, this is more in depth on the town of Maycomb and how they stereotype blacks.
The people of Maycomb did not agree with a white man defending a black man. Bob was a abusive father towards Mayella and everyone in Maycomb knew that, but because he was going up against Tom Robinson everyone believed Bob. During this time in Maycomb the people believed that every black person was a liar. In the trial Mayella had the advantage of being white. Mayella had a plan and she executed it.
Everyone has situations where it is better to stay neutral and just stand back, but there is also situations where you should just in and help one side. Our decisions can impact the future in many ways. In the novel, The Great Gatsby, by F. Scott Fitzgerald, we have the character Nick Carraway who is also neutral and reserves his judgment. This neutrality impacts the story in many ways. Most are negative like how he just left after he witnessed Tom punch Myrtle in the face, he didn’t try to convince Gatsby to stay and not go home yet at the end of the story, and when Gatsby tries continuously to get Daisy even though it fails.

(Lee 123).
In the novel of mice and men by John Steinbeck he was able to captured the voice of the American people during the depression era. He showed that people were racist people during that time. Like on page 19 well when the bus will get mad he will look for Crooks and bypass everybody else just to yell at him because he was the only black person. Another example of how he shows that there is still racism in that era Candy"even though he's not racist to crooks he still calls him the N-word even though their friends“. Which shows that even though that there was some acceptance of black people why people will still call the network even know it was the right thing to do.so with that evidence being shown shows that John Steinbeck wasn't a racist.
Dubose's narration about Jem's father shows her criticism about the fact that Atticus decided to defend a black man. To elaborate, Mrs. Dubose sat in her her on her porch when Jem and Scout pasted by. Instead of keeping her thoughts to herself, she yelled out to Jem and Scout “ Your father’s no better than the niggers and trash he works for!” (Lee, ) In this comment, she expresses her frustration about Atticus taking a case that includes a black man. Additionally, Mrs. Dubose also presented her opinion that black people are like trash. In the end, Jem turns furious due to her racial comments and expressions towards Atticus, and the
Alain De Botton claims that the chief aim of humorists is not trying to entertain anybody, but instead to convey with impunity messages that might be dangerous or impossible to state directly. Alain´s claim is completely absurd and is wrong for many reasons, cartoons, comedians, shows and acts have been around forever if they were meant to cause harm in any way then in this day and age they would be shut down by now. The game show host of home Family Feud, Steve Harvey, is a comedian and would never cause anyone harm.

Botton is claiming that the chief aim of humorists

At the end of the novel when other slaves at Aunt Polly’s house speak they articulate with the same hard to understand manner.
