The people of Maycomb have no sympathy for Mayella or what is happening in her broken down home until they realize a colored man is involved. Tom Robinson is innocent of this crime but citizens of Alabama would never want to admit two white people are lying and a colored man is telling the truth. “Yes, suh. I felt sorry for her, she seemed to try more’n the rest of ‘em--” (Lee 264). Tom Robinson only wanted to help Mayella with her chores out of pure kindness when Mayella kissed him.
Along with a history of oppression for over three hundred years, discrimination is the central part of the African American experience. The poverty rates of the African Americans are as steady as they were some decades ago. They are the most segregated groups in American society. A convenient way to measure segregation is to look at housing and residential areas. In Love, L laments over the poor conditions of the houses made by the " Equal Opportunity developer" for the black community: " And he wasn't the one who boarded up the hotel and sold seventy-five acres to an Equal Opportunity developer for thirty-two houses built so cheap my shack puts them to shame" (Morrison 9), and in Tar Baby, Son shows how difficult life is in an all-black town like Eloe, where people "[.
In the book, Taylor writes from Mr. Logan's point of view that, “Time are hard for everybody.” (204). Black families are automatically categorized due to something they cannot change, their skin color. Because of white men like the Wallaces, black families live in fear of instances that repeat the Berrys’ burnings. Acts of rebellion like shopping in Vicksburg sparks the attention of men like the Wallaces. “You got any idea what a risk they took just to go shopping in Vicksburg in the first place?” (Taylor 205).

Huck feels some type of pity for Jim; however, it is only for brief moments at the most, and is soon replaced by a snobby attitude. This is because Huck does not want to associate himself with a slave (Hurt 100). 2. Jim is nothing more than a doll that Tom and Huck play with so they can have fun. He represents how Caucasian slave owners use their slaves for their own advantage, and take into no thought about how it feels on the other side.
"There 's nothing more sickening to me than a low-grade white man who 'll take advantage of a Negro 's ignorance. Don 't fool yourselves—it 's all adding up and one of these days we 're going to pay the bill for it. I hope it 's not in you children 's time." (23.40) Atticus is putting his own race down because he knows that almost every white man in Maycomb is racist. He doesn 't want his kids to
He has lost his speech and began howling, “We could hear him moving about in his own room, but there was no light there. Presently from this room came the long - howl of a wolf” (Kipling 5). When he started howling Strickland’s thoughts became a reality, so and the narrator came up with a plan to capture the Silver Man. When they lured him, “ the leper halted in the front porch for a moment and we jumped out on him with the sticks. He was wonderfully strong … Strickland knocked his legs from under him and I put my foot on his neck”(Kipling 7).
So he picked up the body and brought it home he buried him in the backyard. We were waiting till you were older so you would understand.

So she opens the door her dad is there but he doesn’t look hurt like he did before and he said come on I will so you some place safe ,but we have to hurry or else.
In the aftermath of Tom’s attempted escape from prison, which eventually led to his death, “Maycomb was interested by the news of Tom’s death for perhaps two days,” (240) as it was “typical of a nigger’s mentality to have no plan, no thought for the future, just run the blind first chance he saw” (240). The author’s application of this description distinctly portrayed how Maycomb’s warped perspective of Tom’s death was achieved through the racism that inspired many to believe all African Americans were stereotypical criminals and in Tom’s case it was no different. Critically, Maycomb’s prejudice shines through in this description of its lack of sympathy towards an innocent African American’s death and highlights ignorance as an alarming after effect of racism. Before the court had begun to issue its final verdict, ““Atticus had used every tool available in court to free men to save Tom Robinson, but in the secret courts of men’s hearts Atticus had no case” (241) as “in our courts, when it’s a white man’s words against a black man’s, the white man always wins,” (220). The author’s description of the court’s ruling was definite and expected because as Atticus explained, society is biased, therefore the court of all white men were always partisan towards voting in favor of a white man without allowing any arguments against him to sway them.
