Boo has lost his essential social and communication skills and can not survive outside of his home, this is the consequence of continually being ridiculed and can damage somebody’s self-esteem. In addition, Atticus Finch is another victim of prejudice in the novel. After being chosen to defend Tom Robinson, the town folk starts to exhibit prejudice towards him. The town folk trust that Atticus will not present a legitimate defense for Tom because of his skin color, but Atticus full heartedly intends to do so because he believes in equal rights and condones in prejudice or racism. In addition, Atticus Finch is also the victim of
Crooks was the most lonely person in the book.We couldn't find out what Crooks real name was but Crooks had been named Crooks because of his crooked back accident caused by a horse. He was African american in a racist environment.Crooks has a temper because of the racism or when people invade his privacy. Lennie tried to be his friend.

In Hawthorne's novel The Scarlet Letter, Dimmesdale’s cowardice makes him responsible for his own and the other main characters suffering. Dimmesdale is responsible for his own misery. Cowardice is the reason for Dimmesdale’s suffering. Why he doesn't admit to his adultery with hester. Which makes him guilt ridden and he doesn't want to admit that he did it cause he is to high up in society and he doesn't want the rest of the town to see that he has committed the sin of adultery.
Harper Lee created characters to be blinded by ignorance and show hatred for people proven innocent of misdeed. Through analyzing the characters Arthur Radley, the Ewells, and Tom Robinson showed the theme “The evil in the world isn’t always what society believes it is so
And the jury being white means he has no chance at winning, it’s truly sad, but during the time of the trial that 's just how society works. 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
While he does have his own quarters, he feels shunned because of his color. Many people at this time period thought that blacks were dirty and lower than caucasians. Crooks has gotten used to this way of life, and so he isn’t used to having anyone who treats him as an equal. Having his own place is nice for Crooks; however, he would like nothing more than to get to live in the barracks with the other men and fit in. Sadly, as Crooks says himself to Lennie, “You go on get outta my room.
By saying the people don’t like the way he lives, this shows that whenever they don’t like something, they turn it into something negative and it is used against someone to keep with them. Just by what Dolphus looks like, he is judged and is seen as a negative influence to the town, even though it is not what it looks
She oftens talks about Everett and how saintly he is because he is the only white person that will go near them. On the other hand, she does not treat the blacks in her town nicely and tries forgiving them although they did not do anything. Also, Mrs. Merriweather makes a comment saying "at least we don’t have the deceit to say to ‘em yes you’re as good as we are but stay away from us. Down here we just say you live your way and we’ll live ours”(149). What Mrs. Merriweather doesn't know is that blacks can't just go about their way of life in Maycomb.
"Secretly, Miss Finch, I 'm not much of a drinker, but you see they could never, never understand that I live like I do because that 's the way I want to live." (Lee 200 par. 11 ) This quote shows that Dolphus thinks that he need to pretend he is a drunk to explain to the rest of the town that that drinking is the reason he is white and he married a black woman and they have kids together. That is just sad that society wouldn’t just accept his decisions of marrying a black woman. During this time period, it was a sin for blacks and whites to have kids together.
Atticus has a very strong argument that Tom Robinson was innocent and that he was actually a good person on the inside who would never hurt a fly. My other text I will be covering is the nest as there is a character in it named Paul and his friend Jimmy wants to go on a hike with Paul but Jimmy’s parents don’t want him to go on the hike as there is many bad rumors about him considering the fact that he was sent to reform school for doing one bad
