The jury convicted Tom Robinson because he was colored and back then white people believed they had to stick together against the colored people. This shows that based on the evidence Tom Robinson was only convicted because of his skin color. Based on all the information provided at the trial of Tom Robinson the jury should have found him not guilty. But in the south, white people were racist towards people of color. As a result of this Tom Robinson was found guilty with no evidence to prove that he was.
Italo Calvino was born in Cuba in 1923, Shortly after he was born his parents decided to move back to Italy where they first came from (Italo Calvino). Calvino was raised in San Remo, Italy on a vegetation farm while his dad worked as a professor (Italo Calvino). Later on as Calvino started to get older, he started making his own
Tom has to have it his own way. “Tom broke her nose”(Fitzgerald 27). Myrtle was not doing was Tom wanted , so to get her to do what he want he uses physical abuse as leverage against her. Tom went to NY for a Women named Myrtle Wilson, him and here have an fair with there husband, and wife. Then when she does not what to go into the apartment tom threaten here if she does not she going to be hurt by him.
Furthermore Tom Robinson was just like the rest of us, and has never hurt anyone. After the trial, Tom was put into holding, but he could not handle the pain of staying in there and accused of something he did not do. So he decided to run. The police told him to stop, but he kept proceeding. They shot at Tom, and killed him.
Civilians in the town would spread rumors about him, which caused many hardships. Tom Robinson was taken to court, and many white citizens said he beat, and raped the girl. The judge throughout this case didn’t say much. Instead of the judge deciding what would happen to Tom most of the white people decided if they wanted to let Tom free or put into jail. I believe because of his race, he was put into jail.
Some people think he is a hero because he took up for the girls. By quitting his job he took up for them? I don't think that's taking up for someone, that's stupidity. Sammy didn't have to throw out his job like trash when he could've easily have kept his mouth shut, or just have said “you didn't have to embarrass them like that”. He necessarily didn't have to quit.
It depicted his own fate when people judged him on his skin color. He was beyond innocent in the case but, convicted anyway, the jury didn’t care about the lack of evidence they were determined to send him to jail. Due to the time period people often discriminated against black not just judged them. If Tom Robinson was white there wouldn’t have been a case in the first place. Tom had a re-trailing coming up but he knew there was no way that a jury would say he was innocent, so Tom made his decision and tried to escape from jail and ended up getting shot.
When Tom Robinson went to court for his rape case, he had lost the case before the jury even had time to come up with the verdict. I can prove this by saying"Scout realizes that although it may appear that Tom is given a fair trial, “in the secret court of men’s hearts Atticus had no case. Tom was a dead man the minute Mayella Ewell opened her mouth.” Scout understands that, despite evidence of the contrary, the white jury will believe a white person instead of a black person"(Champion). Even though Tom was innocent just because he wasn 't white he was set to die the moment he stepped into the courtroom. If people saw past his skin color and actually looked at the evidence.
