In The Help and Selma, both Skeeter Phelan and Martin Luther King believed that African Americans are not any less of a person than white people. Zach from The Secret Life of Bees and the children in gangs from Crips and Bloods: Made in America differ because Zach has the support and education he needs to believe in himself and his future. The children of gangs have support, but it is not in the same caring ways.
Antigone did not think it was right, and decided to bury him saying “ But I will bury him; and if I must die, I say that this crime is holy: I shall lie down with him in death…”.

This then led to the separation of schools and the destruction of a normal livelihood. Dr.King and Malcolm X, two men in the face of oppression rose up to challenge the racial barrier, thus changing the world forever. Although Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X seem to have mutual respect and an equal understanding of the inequality, their philosophies were quite different from each other.

The same thing happened at Harper 's Ferry, but he was captured. Brown went to trial that same year and was sentenced to the death penalty. Some say that his lawyers and family came up with a story that he was mentally ill, in effort to escape the death penalty but that didn’t work.
With their father as the defending lawyer, Scout and Jem are introduced to racism with an anomalous perspective. Most wealthy, white children growing up in the south in the 1930s gained a biased attitude toward African Americans, but Scout and Jem luckily avoid this prejudice.

Scout figures out that sometimes bigotry and emotion overpower a supposedly objective justice system. Although all evidence proved Tom Robinson to be not guilty, his color secured his sentencing and inevitable murder.
However, with his own child beginning to appear black he goes back to abusing them.

Armand is ashamed of blackness, this is seen by him when he rejects his own child and Désirée out of the shame he feels. The only things that causes this shift is Armand’s racism towards African-Americans. He views them as inferior property, not as living breathing humans with emotions too.
She will always be the childless mother. “The Mother” is filled with grief-filled sorrow, tragedy, and bitterness, with a very somber tone. At times, it is even shocking to hear what this mother has to say. “You will never neglect or beat them or silence or buy with a sweet.” Brooks says here that the mother will never be able to do anything with her “dim, killed” children with a horrible reality; she is imagining what might have been her motherhood (Shmoop). “Believe me that even in my deliberateness I was not deliberate.” Here, Brooks continues speaking in the mother’s voice, who mourns and begs forgiveness from her aborted children, wondering if she has indeed truly committed a crime and wanting to let her children know that she was not deliberately killing them (Shmoop).

"Ruler asked blacks to win their legitimate place in the public eye by increasing sense of pride, high good models, diligent work and initiative. He additionally asked blacks to do this in a peaceful matter," The distinction is in Malcolm X and Martin Luther King 's experiences impacted their later perspectives. As a dark youth, Malcolm X was insubordinate and furious. He faulted the poor social conditions that blacks lived in on the whites.

The Scottsboro Boys Case and To Kill a Mockingbird were cases of the injustice of black men. Harper Lee was trying to point out that a person 's skin color or race does not justify the actions they done, that anyone who practices prejudice is foolish. That prejudice is an actual reality that a person experiences first hand and hurts others in the process. Like Harper Lee with her father being a lawyer she must’ve experienced it first hand. These stories teach us that you shouldn’t judge a person by their race.
