The main Characters of the book are Atticus, Scout, and Jem Finch. Throughout the novel To Kill a Mockingbird the author gives the reader insight into how racial, gender, and religious discrimination, impact the community of Maycomb. There are many times when racial discrimination is shown in the novel, like when Calpurnia takes Scout and Jem to her church and Lula tells them many times that she has no business bringin white children to a black church. “You ain’t got no business bringin white chillun here they got their church we got our’n (Lee 158). This is just one of the many examples of this in To Kill a Mockingbird.
Meeting Homer Barron was her biggest change from her old self, because her father did not allow her be in any relationships, but she went out in public with Homer “driving in the yellow-wheeled buggy and the matched team of bays from the livery stable” (454). Consequently, this was only because she was living in her own reality and believed that Homer would be the one to marry her. Homer was “not a marrying man” (454) and would not marry Emily, but she refused to accept the denial of marriage from him, so she killed him to keep him with her forever. She stayed within her house to keep herself in the Old South. When she told the men to see Colonel Sartoris, she was not aware that “Colonel Sartoris had been dead for almost ten years” (452) at that point.

Tom was accused of raping a white woman who was Mayella Ewell, Mayella said he raped her while he was helping her with chores. She later on tells the readers that it was false allegations. The reason why she didn 't tell the truth at her first trial was because, Mayella was afraid of being embarrassed because she kissed a black male. She rather have an innocent man get charged with a crime than that. “However, Robinson was transferred from the state prison to Maycomb 's county jail on Saturday, two days before he stood trial on Monday, and Atticus had to defend him against a lynch mob”.
She teaches the children that the town does not “believe in persecuting anybody” (Lee 329) because of the U.S. democratic government. Gates then goes on to share how “there are no better people in the world than Jews” (Lee 329), and it is beyond her comprehension to know why Hitler could commit acts against them. The irony lies in her blindness to the similar oppression happening in her home town. The children are taught that Hitler is a monster for his anti semitic actions in Germany; meanwhile, African Americans are forced to face daily suppression in Maycomb County. Both groups have stereotypes that cause others to perceive them as
• The lynch mob that killed Leo Frank is quite similar to the lynch mob that came after Tom Robinson. Fortunately, the Old Sarum Bunch left without causing any actual harm. However, their evil intentions were the same. Framed • The National Pencil Company refused to pay because the Pinkerton Detective Agency did not handle the case professionally and set out to prosecute Leo Frank regardless of the
Janie Inger started, as she announced that she was “going to stop buying [the eggs that Mrs. Fullerton was selling]” (69), in an attempt to decrease the overall demand thereof, and consequently, compel her to get rid of her chickens—eliminating the issue of the poor smell. However, this was not sufficient for the community, for shortly after, Steve had introduced the lane deal; explaining to the neighbours that “if [they] can work [the] lane deal, [Mrs. Fullerton] has got to go. It’s simple and it’s legal” (69). These examples clearly depict how the theme was further developed at the birthday party as the community planned to realize their desire to extract Mrs. Fullerton’s house from their neighbourhood. Lastly, the theme was fully developed as the plan was set afoot, and the petition was made—independent of the fact that Mary opposed the lane deal, and spoke against implementing it.
"You can 't come Jason they won 't let you in!" My mother raised her voice, "You have school tomorrow and you have to sleep!". I took a breath, "mom, I don 't care I must see her!" I snap, "I dont care about anything or anyone I am coming with you!" "No your not" "Mom I don 't want anything to happen and if something does then I have to be there one last time!"
God says that we should love everyone we encounter, but in no way did segregation spread love. Even though segregation obviously went against the morals of the black churches, it did not seem to be something the white churches spoke out against. With both church groups being Christians, it is shocking that the congregations followed such starkly different paths when it came to the issue of segregation in the South, which in turn resulted in a severe question of
