Even with more than enough evidence to support Tom Robinson’s claim, the all-white jury declares Tom Robinson as guilty. The ruling explains to Scout and Jem that their town is not a perfect little place, but it’s full of prejudice and unjust beings. One night, while on the way home from school, Jem and Scout are attacked by a mysterious man who is actually Bob Ewell. From his house, Boo Radley witnesses the attempted murder and kills Bob Ewell with a kitchen knife. Atticus and the town’s sheriff, Heck Tate, decide to hide the fact that Boo Radley saved the children.
The sentence was motivated by racial prejudice and oppression even though they have all the evidence that proves the man’s innocence. And there is the mob who gathers to assassinate Robinson once he gets put into the local jail. They want to kill him without a trial. But Atticus takes them down the night before the trial, and Jem and Scout join him doing that. Then Scout recognizes one member of the mob as he is her classmate’s father, and she starts thinking that his son must be ashamed of the membership of his father in the mob.
In this section I will however only address the centrality of racism and white supremacy as theme of CRT in the context of the book. Racism Charles Lawrence asserts that American racism is prevalent and is unconscious .After Mr Radley fired his gun, the neighbors assumed that “Mr Radley shot a Negro in his collard patch.” They made this conclusion without solid proof that it was indeed a black man. Racial prejudice runs so deep that even the children have come accustomed to it. Scout was teased by her classmate and cousin Francis because Atticus was defending a black man. Although Calpurnia has been useful to the Finch family, Aunt Alexandra refuses Scout to visit Calpurnia and incites Atticus to fire her because she is black.
The novel takes place in the fictional southern town of Maycomb Alabama. It 's a time of racial unrest. Most of the people in the town are prejudice against blacks. A conflict occurs when an innocent man named Tom Robinson is accused of a crime. Atticus, Toms lawyer, and the father of the young girl named Scout, is pressured not to defend him.
More importantly, however, Boo was the mysterious figure who saved the Finch children from Bob Ewell’s attack. Because the children did not understand Boo until the end of the story, the way they treated him was based on fear and the stereotypes they learned from the others in the town. Other significant examples of misunderstanding in the book come during the trial of Tom Robinson. After Bob Ewell finds his daughter, Mayella, kissing a black man, Tom Robinson, Mr. Ewell severely beats his daughter and accuses Tom of raping and beating her. Although it is physically impossible for Tom to have attacked Mayella, he is convicted of the crime.
As the movie went on, all the jurors had explained why they had a bad view on children from the slums. Juror number three is the one who is always thinking the worst of the boys from the slums. In the end of the movie he has a picture of a boy, his son, who is from the slums and makes him upset so he is trying to take out his anger toward his own boy on the boy on trial. All the other jurors except number eight, have a bad view of the slums because of the prominence of crime in the areas of the slums and they don 't see all the kids from the slums because they just see the bad kids that come from the areas. The jurors may not know all the children from this area so they will have a lack of knowledge.
A recap of the film Gran Torino is all about a strong-willed racist veteran called Walt Kowalski living in the neighborhood with Hmong immigrants, from Southeast Asia. Walk virtually detested and resented all the Asians and everything around him. He called them ‘gooks’ and ‘chinks’ but the Hmong’s ignored his abuses. Walt lived alone and it seems his wife had died to live him two sons, with whom he had little relationship. His teenage neighbor, Thao was pressurized by his gang to steal his car, and Thao came one evening perform the act, unfortunately, Walk caught him.
This relationship had gone too far to this point because it was very wicked, violent, and ultimately sad. The cat has caused him to do dreadful things to the people around him especially murdering his wife. Furthermore, the alcohol has made everything worse since he became much more aggressive than what he is now. Towards the end of this dreadful story the character was being investigated for the murder of his own wife. It seems that he almost got away with it, but the black cat appeared with what seemed as a corpse of his dead wife.
Here is the protagonist of the movie, Anant Velankar, who wants to do an MA in literature, but his father wants him to join the police service, as he himself had served in the police service before retiring. So, against his will, Anant joins the police service as a sub-inspector, even though he hates the idea of being in the police. As a child, Anant saw his father mercilessly beat his mother, even when his mother suggested that Anant doesn’t want to join the police, his father beat her. This has a deep psychological impact on Anant. It is shown in the movie that whenever Anant is in charge of a case in which a woman is a victim, he beats the convicts black and blue.
