During Jim Crow, many people were racist and cruel to colored people. After the incident with Cassie and Lillian Jean in Strawberry, Mama lectured Cassie that she “have to accept the fact that in the world outside this house, things are not always as we would have them to be” (126).

Why don’t the kids at school like me.
They are treated poorly and ridiculed. One day, Jem, Scout, and Dill walk by a picnic where blacks are hanging out, when they start to talk about ‘mixed children’, “Colored folks won’t have ‘em because they’re half white; white folks won’t have ‘em ‘cause they’re colored, so they’re just inbetweens, don’t belong anywhere.” (215) This shows how the children how are half white and half black are rejected just because they aren’t one or the other. They’re ignored because of prejudice between blacks and whites. During the trial Atticus acknowledges the prejudice within the case, stating, “She was white, and she tempted a Negro.
