(Ch.16, Pg.168) Mr. Raymond acted as if he was drunk so he that he wouldn't need to explain to anyone his love for a black woman.

In 1954, Brown vs. Board of Education deemed segregated public schools unconstitutional, yet white southern colleges did not begin to admit African American students until the early 1960s; furthermore, even though African Americans encompassed raw talent and the necessary physical characteristics, they were excluded from athletic teams until the late 1960s and early 1970s (Integration, 2012). Coach Don Haskins, a man with no prejudices, did not care about what other people thought. He explained to the players he was trying to recruit, "I do not see color, I just see talent and that is what I put on the court (Gartner, 2006).

He knows that the paper will be hard, knowing that he and his professor are two different colors that come from two separate worlds. A black man will always have an impact on a white man's judgment and view, but the speaker knows that the teacher wants no part of the black man's life. The speaker only wishes to be accepted not as a black man but as an American student.

(84) Even the language he uses declares his intentions and anger towards the blacks. In the white men world, Bob Ewell is a poor, uneducated and powerless white man; but in the black men world, he is powerful; in his mind, he thinks that the town of Maycomb should make him a hero; he saved a white woman from a black villain. Bob Ewell’s real intention is not to defend his daughter and himself; his real intention is gaining attention, he hates that he is nothing and wants the world to shape around him. He execrated Atticus because Atticus is better than him and educated and rich and a man with morals. At the End of the trial, the Ewells unfold to be lairs, Bob Ewell
