The Jurgis family is one of the victims of this horrible crime. After the death of Ona’s uncle and some arguments , the family “finally decides that two more of the children would have to leave school and work”(Sinclair 71). The poor life had forced the children to leave the school, to make money for families in order to survive. This depicts the lack of government capabilities to bring law and order to the society and protect the future generations from this disastrous crime. If a boy were lucky he might found a job like “ getting men beers”(Sinclair 73)which was a simple task that they could have easily carried it out.
They felt it was time to say “No justice no peace”. No more would they have to look down or look away when a white person is coming down the street. No more, would they have to explain to a broken hearted child that they cannot spend the night or go over their white friend house because their parents would not allow that. African Americans did not give up on gaining their freedom they fought on for many years so that one day we all would be as one and stand together instead of against each
Barnett that he should have helped the Logans and T.J before the little girl. Cassie took Little Man 's place for a wopen so he wouldn 't have be embarrassed on his very first day of school. She says that she would hurt anyone since someone hurt her Papa, this shows that she loved her Papa so much that she hurt someone. Also she told Mr. Barnett that he should have helped the first customer that had come in, which happen to be Cassie, Stacey, and T.J but Mr. Barnett had helped some other citizens before them, even though they came in first. Just like Rosa Parks stood up for what she believed in by not giving up her seat, my character Cassie Logan shows she 's brave by all of these acts and many
Because this cause was brought to a courthouse full of white men by a white man showed that Tom had lost the fight before it even started. Just because he was a black was the reason it went to a trial. They were no witnesses, not even a case, and no evidence against Tom. The Ewells had a made a fake case to make a statement and because a black man was living better than a white man was in this day in age. The nonequality within the courthouse was one of the main reasons it went the way it did.
She try to make herself look like a boy, “she pinched my right niple hard when she caught me all wrapped up trying to flatten them” so she was embarrassed. She likes the girl next door and her brothers start to pick on here at supper yelling : Jill wants to be a boy” which was hard for her . jill also tried to make the private area look like she had balls and to close her private area so her mom had to help her clean everything up down there. Her mom wasn’t happy that she tried to make herself look like a boy and her mom got mad.
When he denies them and Mayella’s father comes into the yard tom runs away because he knows something bad will come from this. After tom is gone Mayella’s father forces her to say that Tom Robinson abused her. Mayella is powerless because of her gender, the class she lives in, and the respect she gets from those around her.

He is nicknamed Boo and he never comes outside so he has never been seen by them. A neighbor 's nephew, named Dill starts spending summers in Maycomb. He becomes good friends with Scout and Jem and they begin an obsessive mission to get Boo to come outside. Scout and Jem discover that their father is going to represent a black man named Tom Robinson, who is accused of raping and beating a white woman.
Comparing a white man to trash when he is cheating a black man shows that Atticus does not accept the the racism and narcissistic ways in his town, and seeks for his son to not accept them either. Atticus teaches his children to strive for justice not only for others lives, but also in their own lives. Atticus makes it clear to his family and the sheriff that justice will not stop at the front door of his home. ‘“But, nobody 's
But, nevertheless this is how the times are and a black person never really has a chance in the court system, because they weren’t treated the same as white people. Another time that it is very clear that people don’t treat Tom the same as white people is when people refer to him as a “nigger.” The first example of this is at the Finch landing on Christmas when Scout and Cousin Francis get into a fight after Francis says something to Scout about Atticus, “He’s nothin’ but a nigger-lover” (Lee 83). This quote very clearly shows that people treat Tom differently when Cousin Francis says
There are three key characters of that squad; Brianna, who is constantly called fat when she can’t be over 120 pounds; Amber, Britney’s best friend on the team and the only Asian man cast member; and most importantly, Winnie.

Britney’s father loses his well-paying job and their family has to move to “the other side of the tracks” and Britney must leave her squad and boyfriend, Brad, behind for Crenshaw Heights. To keep it short, she has a difficult time adjusting to a mostly black school that has high security and so little funding
Therefore he beat him up until his mom jumped in his place and got beat up instead, she would do anything for her children.

Wang Lung was surprised to hear that then reason that his son was misbehaving was because of women. O-lan suggested getting him a slave, however, his father would not allow that. He decided he was proud his son was a young lord.
In the article “Boys in Need of a Buddy system” Way talks about her own brother’s broken hearted experience with his childhood best friend. After Lucan’s mother had schooled the boys about cutting up her favorite childhood doll, John had stopped speaking and seeing Lucan. Lucan was very upset but boys are shown that boys do not show emotions like girls do because they could be told that they are “too girly” or even gay so other boys will pick on them. Boys are thought to be closed off and though by playing sports while girls are allowed to be open and emotional whenever they please and playing with baby dolls feeding and cleaning them as if they are
They find a ball of gray twine, chewing gum, a spelling bee medal and an old pocket watch. Also she thinks that Boo Radley has been leaving the treasures in the tree. 21. The next day they see that the tree is plugged with cement.

Remember that special bird that always seems to be belting its cheerful tunes? Has anyone ever told you to appreciate the bird’s special knack for singing? Or rather, to do no harm to the frail animal since, after all, “It's a sin to kill a mockingbird” (Lee, pg.119). Harper Lee took this aphorism and turned it on its head: she gave this phrase a new meaning by creating the critically acclaimed novel, To Kill A Mockingbird starring the brother sister duo, Scout and Jem, both of whom constantly finding themselves in the most unlikely but simultaneously relatable predicaments. The audience follows the pair through their highs and lows in a key coming of age story.
There are many methods for guiding others, but in Harper Lee's book, To Kill A Mockingbird, a unique way is exhibited. Atticus, a main character, uses his own techniques while being a single father and lawyer. He encounters a variety of challenges in his life at home, work, and in Maycomb. Throughout the book, Atticus stays consistent, understanding, and honest, while raising and teaching Jem and Scout lessons that will benefit them throughout their life.
