Atticus really wants people to understabd that even though Tom is a Black he as equal as everyone else in that courtroom. Atticus specifically says, “ But there is one way in this country in which all men are created equal …..”-Atticus Finch. The jury has left for a couple hours and is now back. Are you ready to find out the verdict? The verdict is Tom Robinson is guilty.
Racial Profiling sends the message that people are being “judged by the color of their skin and harms the criminal justice system by eviscerating the trust that is necessary if law enforcement is to effectively protect our communities.”(Fact Sheet) Racial Profiling addresses people directly based off of the color of their skin. This is an unethical action, this because it is unfair, injustice, shows inequality and causes corruption due to that. Racial profiling is based off of the assumption that “...any particular individual of one race or ethnicity is more likely to engage in misconduct than any particular individual of other races or ethnicities.”(Fact Sheet). Racial Profiling separates people by color, race or ethnicity, like discrimination. Within this discrimination, they are basically say that one kind is more likely to do one thing then another.
Tom Robinson should have been found not guilty for many reasons. First, Tom Robinson should have been found not guilty because he was right handed. Mayella the victim, was punched in the face on the night of the crime. On page 235, Mr. Heck Tate stated that Mayella had a black eye on her right eye
Racial distinctions between Africans Americans and Caucasians have been used to justify significant differences in jobs, policing and housing, leading to great injustices. If we want to address those injustices we need to change the way we think about what our society needs to do in order to strive. The racial influence on finding jobs for African Americans in modern society still worsens as discrimination still decides who gets the job or the promotion. For example, if two qualified males of both races applied for a job the one who would be called up for the job is most likely the Caucasian male. I believe this because of the statistics that have been shown to me and our society countless times.
Tom was accused of raping a white woman who was Mayella Ewell, Mayella said he raped her while he was helping her with chores. She later on tells the readers that it was false allegations. The reason why she didn 't tell the truth at her first trial was because, Mayella was afraid of being embarrassed because she kissed a black male. She rather have an innocent man get charged with a crime than that. “However, Robinson was transferred from the state prison to Maycomb 's county jail on Saturday, two days before he stood trial on Monday, and Atticus had to defend him against a lynch mob”.
She also learns the different backgrounds of the people and why each one is racist towards African Americans. Atticus does his best to prove Tom innocent and pleads to the judge. The trial is shown to be unfair because Mayella and her supporters obviously lie to the court, and Tom Robinson seems innocent. However, even when Atticus begs for a fair trial, the jury and the audience seem to disagree with him. Dill cries when this happens because he realizes how biased the court system is.
In the book it is the whites vs the blacks. The whites are living the better life and are mistreating the blacks throughout the book. The whites use many ways to make the blacks feel like unequal. For example they discriminate them and use racism towards them in the book. Not only does the whites use racism but also kids.
Atticus Finch faced societal judgement when he accepted the task of defending Tom Robinson, who had been unjustly accused of the rape of a white women, in court. It was no easy task. When put on stand he patiently explained to the jury, as well as the world, that the horrible assumption that all black people are immoral, is wrong. That in fact, “this is a truth that applies to the human race and to no particular race of man” (Lee 273). Nonetheless, there are still people like Dolphus Raymond in the world who find themselves limited by their fear of public ridicule.
Tom Robinson, an African American man, is who Atticus is supporting in a case who is accused of raping a white girl. Not only the ones connected, but all whites in the community, even children know Atticus has a great chance of losing this case. Even a child stating that Scout and Jem’s dad (Atticus’s Children) “defends negroes” (Lee, 99).this is said because he is supporting African Americans in the case.
