Perception defines the world around you. It affects every aspect of your being: your thoughts, actions, beliefs, etc… In the novel “To Kill A Mockingbird” by Harper Lee, Jean Louise “Scout” Finch begins to understand just how impactful perception can be as she witnesses the deterioration of the dignity of Tom Robinson, a black man who is being tried for the rape of a white girl. In this intriguing read, Harper Lee demonstrates the theme of inaccurate allegations very effectively. More specifically, when inaccurate allegations that are solely based on perceptions are presented, the consequences can be significant, for others may suffer at great lengths. Perceptions are often incorrect when one is unwilling to believe or does not have all of the facts.
Health, according to our book, is the “state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being” (Macionis). Racism refers to “the assertion that people of one race are less worthy than or even biologically inferior to others, is the most serious example of prejudice” (Macionis).

Both Martin Luther King Jr.’s and Michelle Alexander’s text exhibit the brutality and social injustice that the African American community experiences, which ultimately expedites the mass incarceration of African American men, reflecting the current flawed prison system in the U.S. The American prison system is flawed in numerous ways as both King and Alexander points out. A significant flaw that was identified is the injustice of specifically targeting African American men for crimes due to the racial stereotypes formed as a result of racial formation.

Female sex offenders are assessed with an aim of establishing the future likelihood of re-occurrence of such sexual offensive behavior and to establish mechanisms that can be used to decrease the risk and rate of recidivism.

In her Pulitzer Prize winner novel, she sketches the image of a town of injustice and inequality, where prejudice, specifically racism, classism and sexism, runs through people’s veins and shapes their everyday life. She clarifies her points through several incidents in the novel such as Tom’s death to show how prejudice and especially racism can be a fate-determiner. Even nowadays, this contagious disease is stills deeply embedded in people’s thoughts and would never stop its hunt to destroy innocent and naïve minds, and as Judith Light once said, “Bigotry or prejudice in any form is more than a problem; it is a deep-seated evil within our
