She has racial prejudice views that she tries to enforce on the Finch family which causes some negativity in the household and an antagonist view upon her own character. She feels as though the Finches are civil and are of higher stance so she wants her whole family to look as such regarding clothing, presence, and attitude towards other races lower than the whites. She depicts such racial views to her niece and nephew and neither really appreciate her views. She mentions how someone poorer than the Finches should not even associate with them, such as the Cunninghams. As she states, “The thing is, you can scrub Walter Cunningham till his shoe shines, you can put him in shoes and a new suit but he’ll never be like Jem.” Alexandra thinks of Walter as low class and how he'll never rise up to the stance to be like Jem, who is richer and civilized.
For example, when Skeeter went to go and meet Aibileen all of the African Americans would give her dirty looks. But African Americans would get those same looks if they went into a white neighborhood.

Although it may have seemed as though this woman was in good spirits all she was trying to to was seem enticing to the white men because this was her job. She would never follow through with the persona she gives off, that being a nude sex symbol for the men because she was afraid and disgusted. The woman can be compared to the narrator in several ways, one way being that she is at the bottom of society as he is. The narrator's grandfather left him with a word of advice as he died: ‘I want you to overcome ‘em with yeses, undermine ‘em with grins, agree ‘em to death and destruction, let ‘em swoller you till they vomit or bust wide open,’ and the narrator takes this advice and continues to say yes when in reality are no’s just as the woman does. Throughout the short story, Ellison reveals aspects of inequality within this time period.
However, she instantly dismissed her, pursuing Diana instead. The disapproval Cheryl experienced from her friend Tamara was interesting as well. Tamara accused her of wanting to be white and questioned her pursuit of a “wanna be black girlfriend.” This intracommunity rejection and internalized oppression was evident with the character Bob as well. He displayed a colorist mentality by favoring Annie, a white woman, over Cheryl and Tamara in the workplace. He held the black women to higher expectations and scrutiny while prioritizing Annie’s needs.
Another difference is that racism affected women and men, but gender inequality only affected the women. An example would be Mayella Ewell.

Therefore, she was discriminated against, more than women usually were. People felt sad for her because her father beat her up, but, the citizens of Maycomb don’t feel bad because she came onto a black
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
In this story everything is the exact opposite which makes this story so appealing. This story has a lot of conflict, these girls think that they really know racism and believe that they cannot be friends with the other young white females that are also at camp with them. Snot is a little girl who has a lot of things to say but instead of speaking up she purposely just follows along with the crowd. The African American girls resolve to beat up the white girls when they think they over heard them calling them “niggers”.

The chapter covers various cases in which there were lies that were being told by the white women regarding them being raped by the Afro-Americans. The chapter covers the how the white women who had black children were treated in the society, and this is regarding being considered as outcasts, and they were divorced, disgraced, and in other cases, they were cashed from their homes. The third chapter of the book is “the new cry.” This chapter covers the plea of sympathy that was done by the southerners towards the northerners and this is because the whites who had sympathy for the lunching were deemed to have no sympathy for the white women who were victims of rape from the Afro-Americans. The cry has also been associated with various effects, and this is because the lynch law was being implemented at any time wherever the concerns was linked to the Afro-Americans. The fourth chapter of the book is “the malicious and untruthful white press.” This is a chapter of the book that covers how the white press was spreading lies about the Afro-Americans at the time.
