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
Atticus took upon defending Tom, a black man, knowing he would not win the case, he knew the harsh things people would throw at him. But Atticus brushed them off. The characters Atticus and Scout, in To Kill a Mockingbird showed courage by taking risks, though the outcome may not be in their favor. Atticus had defended Tom Robinson, though he knew he would not win.
Mr. Parks received work adjustment services approximately three months under the supervision of Mrs. Terkesia Walton. While in work adjustment services, Mr. Parks continued to work on the following contracts: Richardson Molding (packed flag kits, assembled battery caps, placed washers on screw boards, and assembled hinge pins), Anthony 's Syrup (formed boxes and labeled and packed containers), Star Herald (collated inserts and applied labels to newspapers), Wells Lamont (assembled clips with buckles and rings), plastic ware (placed eating utensils, napkins, and salt and pepper packets into a bag). His average production rate was 48% during the work adjustment period. He also did janitorial work at two churches and an office building.
He does this because he truly believes that Tom is innocent and feels that if he doesn’t fight for Tom he will lose his honor and respect as can be seen from the quote, Atticus to Scout “If I didn’t I couldn’t hold up my head in town, I couldn’t represent his legislature,I couldn't even tell you or Jem not do something again.” (100, Lee) He believes in his heart that it is
He strongly believes in following his conscience, no matter the cost. For example, Atticus defends Tom Robinson, a slave, knowing that he cannot win the case and that he will get ridiculed for defending a black man. Nevertheless, he persists in defending Tom to the best of his ability, telling Jem that "Courage is . . . when you know you're licked before you begin but you begin anyway and see it through no matter what" (149).
As not all people communicate in the same ways, it is very tough to communicate feelings and emotions as an autistic individual. However, they find ways around the conventional way of expression and are able to extract their inner affection beautifully. Bill radiates this type of emotion through a poem, attentively writing down what at first just may seem like self-focused “autistic” response, but sure enough developing it into a simple yet serene and complex array of words. Through Bill’s ability to express feeling in his words one can see how a present day sage, someone like his occupational therapist, Diane Osaki, can use the principle of the Tao in order to evoke a supportive and modest nature. These heart felt people allow Bill to hardships and solve complications that impede his ability to fit into society.
This instance applies to the relation between black people and white people today. Sometimes, betrayal is necessary for stopping racism. When people stand united together, in opposition to those forces that say racism isn’t a huge deal, the problem can finally be
Because of the distance, Steve wants her true opinion of him with no biases, especially since he is Black. He wants to know who he is and wishes it would be as easy as seeing. Also, since he sees tears in his father’s eyes and sees people second-guess his character, his self-doubt is reaffirmed. In his diary entry, Steve uses the word ‘real’ because he wants people to see the non-superficial side of him. Steve desires people to not ask him or see him, but look into his heart.
However, he is able to overcome that since he never loses hope and keeps trying to get out with the use of logic. The narrator also gives us an image of how people were back then. The narrator says that he “saw—but with how terrible an exaggeration! I saw the lips of the black-robed judges. They appeared to me white” (62).
Short on solutions or much in the way of optimism regarding reparation and the long overdue justice to the black race; Coates’s works preach a gospel of brutal truths about race, and stresses the importance of acknowledging them as an aspiration in itself. Despite the fact of a black American president, despite the media focus on the protest against police killings, he sees no prospect of much change, at least not until America acknowledges the facts of its history. The act of articulating that feeling is, in a sense, the only hope that he offers Samori in his letter to him. The necessity is to understand the nature of the struggle, the way the land lies, and to be able to express it.
She could not do this alone though she had Jem read to her every day just to distract her mind from thinking of morphine. This next quote from “If’ says “ If you can trust yourself when all men doubt yourself.” Atticus trust himself to get Tom a fair trial even if he is black, he knew it was going to be hard but he has to do it for himself. Like the quote said though everyone else has no hope that Tom was going to win the trial, but since he trust in Atticus to do the best of his ability to win the trial for him
