He learned a bit of German. They must have misunderstood far more than they understood of each other.’ After years of marriage, they still had practically no language in common. Thus, Carlos started to retreat into silence. It is very probable that he became simply tired of being constantly misunderstood and mocked by his wife because of his weak English. In his case it was more a self-preservation than creating the identity by conscious abstaining from expressing his opinion directly.
He asks the adults a very offending question to those who may go there for a nice study place to “Aren 't you tired of eating lunch surrounded by noisy high school students?”(source 1 10). He is assuming all teens are loud and disconcert the adults from securing them with a satisfying amount of work done, which is unjust to those teens who may just want to go to their favorite old-fashioned spot for lunch. It is alright to ban someone for doing something they
However, Jem stops them from fighting and invites Walter home for lunch. Scout knows that the Cunningham's are very poor, but Atticus talks to Walter with much respect. Scout has difficulty understanding why he has to be respected when he is "just a Cunningham." One of the boys in her class, Burris Ewell, is extremely dirty. He comes the school only for one day a year and then stops attending.
But at the end of the novel, we see that he is a kind man that has been shut up his entire life and doesn’t like being in the spotlight (both literally and metaphorically). Furthermore, many people in Maycomb are extremely classist and believe that anyone that is below them shouldn’t be seen with the common folk. Aunt Alexandra is a character that shows this; “She had said Indeed Not, but this time she would give her reasons: ‘But I want to play with Walter, Aunty, why can’t I?’ She took off her glasses and stared at me. ‘I’ll tell you why,’ she said. ‘Because—he—is¬—trash, that’s why you can’t play with him.

He is discriminated by teachers like Miss Caroline, by his friends like Scout, and even adults like Aunt Alexandra just because of his class. But walter isn't the only one that is treated unjustly. People like Dolphus Raymond who is treated wrong because of his life choices of marrying a black. Or Scout who is expected of acting lady-like. The takeaway point here is that this book is a revolt, one against discrimination and classism and unjust social

It was Atticus’s reasoning, Calpurnia’s kindness, and the black community’s love that allowed the children to stand with them. The third reason that Atticus should not have defended Tom Robinson is because their Aunt, Uncle, and cousin show disgust. When Atticus and his family go visit some of their immediate relatives, the tension is evident. Scout's Aunt and Uncle don't agree with Atticus’s decision and their disgust is clearly shown. Their disgust even rubs off on their only child, Francis, who acts like an annoying fly that you can't swat away(simile), taunts Scout with cruel words.
On pg 19 we see a Miss.Caroline Fisher who is a new teacher in Maycomb, and is clueless to how stuff works around there. She is perplexed when Walter cunningham won't take her quarter to buy lunch.

This passage focuses in on Jimmy and Will, the unpopular best friends, who have a very small social group. They all have bright futures ahead of them, but that doesn 't comfort them as of the present moment. There is a ranking of popularity or middle school food chain that affects everyone.

Daneon can blame himself for being a silent man, like his silent and a womanizer like his father who put up with Cecily demands. For Mary C? She suffered from depression, PTSD and just didn 't know how to give and get love as she never had examples. Imogene? She was just his comfort during all this, but his heart
