He was also human! Killing another human is never right. I do understand that george was trying to protect lennie but killing him is certainly not the right way to do it. Lennie may have problems with accidentally killing things but george didn't have to kill him for it. George promised to protect lennie and by killing him George broke that promise.
Although Mr. Ewell had died, Scout and Jem would have been dead if Arthur Radley had not been there to save them so Atticus had endangered Scout and Jem in that sense. Another way Atticus had endangered himself and others is because he had tried to defend Tom all night outside the prison from a lynch mob. “Get aside from the door, Mr. Finch” (Lee 202). This was a threat given to Atticus by a lynch mob that is after Tom in the county jail and if Scout had not come to save Atticus, he may as well have been
Bob Ewell depicts the stereotypical white supremacist, Atticus on the other hand chooses his morals over the society’s expectations. When brought the case of Tom Robinson, an alleged black rapist, any lawyer in Maycomb would’ve immediately denied Tom. Atticus chose to defend him, even though he knew he had no chance of winning. He told Scout that he must argue it to uphold his sense of justice and respect, Atticus knew Tom deserved someone to fight for him. This all ties in with what Atticus told Scout,“Remember
They murdered Simon because they believed that he was that they were looking and hunting for. In the spite of everything, Jack wouldn’t have tried to prevent any of the deaths of the other boys on the island because both of the boys who died were against him and everything he believed in.

Are you really a slave if you sign up freely? In James Patterson 's detective novel Cross the Line, this question and many others are raised about human nature as well as intrapersonal conflicts in the characters. This question is one of a few in the book that is still a topic of debate to this day; as well as it helps get the reader thinking about their response to the situation. The more shocking conflicts deal with what the main villain is thinking and his motive for orchestrating the whole plot as well as the conflict that the question at the start relates to. Through these conflicts and many more faced by the main character, Patterson uses them to develop Alex Cross as a character, to add complexity to the plot and also to get the reader
At the beginning of the text it states the quote, ”Governor George Wallace stopped two black men from a doorway trying to enter.” This is showing the theme of acceptance because policeman were not accepting others for being who they are and taking them as a normal citizen. Another thing that shows the theme of acceptance is the next quote, ”The police still don’t know who set off the bomb killing four.” This is showing acceptance because whoever is doing the bombings really doesn’t want to accept blacks and whites together and is going to do whatever to not let it happen. The last example of how the theme is acceptance is because at the end of the text it states, ”Black and whites worked together risking their lives to push for a change.”

Typical of a nigger to cut and run. Typical of a nigger's mentality to have no plan, no thought for the future, just run blind first chance he saw. Funny thing, Atticus Finch might've got him off scot free, but wait-? Hell no. You know how they are.

Lying is an often occurring theme in The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. On the very first paged Huckleberry tells the reader that the truth is often stretched.

The majority of the protagonists are very talented liers.
