Agent Dewey finds it hard to wrap his head around how two people could reach this same degree of rage. Agent Dewey's concepts exclude each other, he does not want to believe them at all.
Maycomb is suffering from a lot of prejudice, and many of the people in Maycomb are, in fact racist. When Tom gets poorly accused for raping and beating a white woman and immediately goes to court. Considering the fact that he is black, he has an unfair disadvantage; people will be judging him on his race, not his alleged actions. The book takes place in the 1930s, but there is still racism around today. During Tom’s trial, the jury and the court are basing their decisions off of what Tom looks like; his skin color and not on what his actions were.
Pojman’s argument against the objections to capital punishment is not completely valid. If we understand the human being, we can also understand that humans are spiteful people and many people are filled with the hopes of revenge. Therefore, the thirst of revenge could potentially be a contributing factor as to why people are for the death penalty. Even if Pojman doesn’t believe in revenge, it should not be a valid reason for him to ignore its potential in justice and decision making during trials. This world is already filled with bitterness towards one another and we, as a society, cannot stop it because we all have different morals.

Scout; a first grade student at the time, was telling the story from her point of view and what had occurred from her childhood perspective.
Even though the jury knew that Tom Robinson was innocent and that Bob Ewell was lying, they still had to convict Tom Robinson just because he was black. Jem, not being racially prejudiced, could not understand this mentality. In addition the prejudice that the citizens of Maycomb felt towards the black community manifests itself through the way they treat the Finch family, even though they are white and Atticus is a respected member of the town. Even though Atticus was just following his obligation to defend Tom Robinson, the town still turned against and shunned them, even by members of their own family. An example of this occurs when Scout and Jem walk past Mrs. Dubose’s house and Mrs. Dubose insults their father: “Your father’s no better than the niggers and trash he works for!” (Lee 105).

They used violent lyrics in their rap and used to make the video powerful as well. Their rap music was against police and authority because black used to get beaten by the police on daily basis during that time. They used profanity in the lyrics, gun in the video to show the hatred for the police that they had. The society was affected by the gangsta rap in both positive and negative way at the same time. The positive impact on the society was that the rappers raised the voice against injustice and they taught colored people to fight against inequalities.
The case of Michael Brown, Samuel DuBose, and Laquan McDonald, are all examples of what we see today in the world of officer vs civilian. Not just any race civilian but those of color predominantly known as African Americans.

Rodney King was beat severely by police after high speed chase he had with the police. Rodney King was a black man that led to the case being a race issue, also another reason for the riots. The case of Rodney King was special because it was witnessed by a bystander and recorded the incident and sent it to the local news station. Three officers who part took in the beating of Rodney king were charged with assault with a deadly weapon and use of excessive force, the last officer was only charged with assault with a deadly weapon which may have been the cause to the violent riots where there were many deaths and damages to business.
