In the past, and even to this day, racism was one of the biggest problems in our society. Throughout history, there were attempts to alleviate inequality.

In To Kill a Mockingbird, topics like stereotypes and inequality are mentioned in Atticus Finch’s Closing Argument.
However, Hosseini also explores the theme of authority that family has over others and how dark feelings can rule people’s lives. Power is depicted in three different ways in the novel: the Taliban’s rule over Afghanistan, Baba’s pull on Amir, and the guilt Amir feels over himself. To begin, the most obvious form of absolute power in the novel is the Taliban in Afghanistan. After Russia is defeated, the Taliban emerge as the heroes; although they have dark intentions with the power, following the path of many organizations throughout history. First, they took away freedoms: “ 'They don’t let you be human . . .
The amazing book winner of the pulitzer prize To Kill A Mockingbird by, Harper lee a wonderful novel. Atticus is a father of jem and scout while they all live in the small town of Maycomb. It makes sense for Atticus a lawyer to take a stand for a local black man accused of rapeing a white woman, Tom Robinson and his trial/case because, Atticus shows a lot of integrity and being the strong willed person that he is. The first reason for atticus to take a stand for Tom is because he possesses integrity.
Especially the idea of social injustice is distinctly reflected in the behaviours of biased people living in Maycomb society where black people are considered as an inferior presence. In ‘To Kill A Mockingbird’, Harper Lee illustrates the theme of justice through various literary techniques by narrating the events of adult’s world in child’s fair perspective, symbolizing each character to demonstrate the consequences which the society influences a child, and reinforcing the theme of social hierarchy due to racism. Firstly,
Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby, and Santiago from Ernest Hemingway’s The Old Man and the Sea, both shared many characteristics of code heroes that were exposed throughout each novel. They both lived by a code of honor, they displayed morals and different standings from other characters, that set them apart from the rest of the characters. The world they live in is chaotic and often painful, making them fight for what they want, and making it hurt for them along the way. In order to survive this hectic world however, both characters must show their courage and endurance, fighting and continuing until the end.
Hassan protects the kite for Amir, then the house for Baba because he is loyal even when Amir is nothing but mean to him and takes him for granted. .

Amir went from running from his problems and being a coward, to staying to fight and standing up for what he believes in.
The novel clearly deals with the tension caused by racial prejudice and social differences. We see that characters such as Boo Radley and the Cunninghams are mistreated and mistrusted because of their social status. Tom Robinson however is mistreated because of his race. Throughout the entire novel a clear picture is given of how racism and prejudice affect everyone surrounded by it and how it causes others to be unfairly
It portrays how Hassan always showed his friendship and loyalty towards Amir and how he betrayed him. It also shows how Baba betrayed Ali. Amir and Hassan grew up together and were very close friends. They played with each other, spent time together, and most importantly Hassan treated him like a brother.
Atticus comes to mind first because even though the differing thoughts on equality, Atticus defied the norms and fought for someone else that could not defend themselves. This is why I believe Atticus is the most courageous person in To Kill A Mockingbird.
