City of Maycomb is a cruel and harsh place to live, due to the environment that people are racist and thinks that the white people have more power than the black people. Not getting a full equal right is not fair. During the Tom Robinson’s trial, people only said that he was guilty because he was a black man; while Ewell was white. Many black people has thought that it was unfair to not get equal rights, the white people made something called “separate but equal”. Which is impossible to be.
Separate but Unequal: The Fight to End Desegregation Segregation is the act or practice of setting groups of people apart from each based on the pigment of their skin, which is unjust and immoral. A man needs food, water, shelter, and medicine, regardless if they are black or white. In the United States after the Civil War, American society was segregated. Segregation of public places such as restaurants, buses, and schools were allowed. The separating of black and white has caused many problems in society and these inequalities are still felt today.
For example, blacks couldn’t vote if their grandfather was a slave. They had to pass a really hard test to vote, and they were taxed when they voted. All of these laws tried to restrict the power of blacks. Not letting them vote means not letting them have free speech, which is their individual
One of the biggest highlighted event in the movie would be when the white people made separate bathrooms for the black people in their houses. People were disgusted about the idea of having to use the same toilet as a black person because of the “diseases” they carry and wanted seperate bathrooms. This was also just another way that white people to keep blacks under them by making them feel inferior. We also have the case of the segregated buses where the white sit in the front and black sit in the back. At this point of the movie a young black man had gotten shot and the driver boarded the bus to kick off all the black people just by saying “colored people off”.
The events of Brown v. Board of Education had impacted the Supreme Court and the vast majority of white folks in the South that was prepared on fighting the desegregation progress. It impacted the Supreme Court, to imposed the Board of Education that’s wrong on “segregate public schools by race” (Benson).Afterwards,1960, South had methods on keeping blacks and whites separated in school; while complying with Browns (Benson). Injustice, is clearly is demonstrated in the timeframe between 1954 - 2000. People from the South were going to such lengths to ensure that children of colour won't be attending the same school as their children. It leaves an unfavourable tastes in my mouth, that people are just misconception on one’s appearance when in fact they had done nothing to affect their personal lives.
Night and To Kill a Mockingbird are both related books because Jews and Blacks were stripped of their rights, experienced evil, and had no respect. Innocent black and Jews were wrongly stripped of their rights. In the novel Night there were a lot of rights taken from the Jews. To begin with, Jewish children were not allowed to German schools, signs were posed on Jewish
There was one student at the University of Oklahoma that was treated with disrespect and inferiority because of how he looked and how he acted. The poor conditions for blacks in schools under the “Separate but equal” doctrine caused the NAACP to file 5 different cases that took out segregation from schools and the Supreme Court’s decision created history. The conditions for black students were horrible and unsanitary. The ¨Separate but Equal¨ doctrine was created in 1896 to keep blacks and whites away from each other (Somervill 28).
There are three major types of injustices and those are Legal,Educational, and Economical. There is lots of injustice in Legal. People will get unfair punishments and trials just because of segregation and racism. The Berry’s were burned as “them white men dragged him and Beacon out of that house, and when old man Berry tried to stop it they it him afire too. ”(29)
In To Kill A Mockingbird, Harper Lee writes in that whites have their own church and the blacks have their own, and blacks have to sit in the balcony in the courtroom. Also, Bob Ewell and others like him thought blacks were incompetent and stupid, and that they aren’t as intelligent as whites. This connects to the real world by how, in the real world, public areas were segregated, such as schools or bus/train stations, often times with the “colored only” areas in worse condition than the “white only” areas. Also, people and groups like the Ku Klux Klan (KKK) discriminated, killed, or threatened to kill blacks and people who stood for them like civil workers. Overall, the racial bias of whites toward blacks by how they are segregated and how whites abused blacks in To Kill A Mockingbird relates to the American South at the
Unfortunately, some of the children were rounded up and secretly sterilized, some were subject to terrible medical experiments, and some simply mysteriously “disappeared.” The mixed race also had a lot of trouble with finding jobs and were even turned down when attempting to join their military. Not only were children victimized in Germany but adult African Germans were also treated horribly. Many were sent to internment camps and some were even murdered by the SS. Afro-Germans are not very known of, but they were a big part of the horrible actions Hitler took to please himself (Blacks during the Holocaust).
The people of montgomery were under segregation. Colored people had to use signs that said for colored like bathrooms, water fountains, restaurants, schools,car dealerships and places like that. The Same applied to the white folks except they like that law because they did not want to be near the colored folks. The KKK & The NAACP The Ku Klux Klan is a terrorist group that burned down black people 's homes and churches even schools the people were afraid of the members of the KKK the people would put sheets with holes over there eyes to nobody would see their faces and they would walk around with torches and set things on fire. The NAACP stood for National association for the advancement of colored people Rosa also thought it was unfair that if a white man beat a black man he only needed to pay a fine of 24 dollars.
I could not understand the reasoning behind someone owning a person. I also had to take off my binoculars when looking at the tactics being used in the Civil War. I was annoyed at the Civil War movies because the soldiers were in tight lines shooting at each other with really no cover. To be honest it looked like suicide to join the armies. Also the color guard to me seemed foolish and more suicidal because people run into battle carrying no weapons but a large flag and to me the was like “please kill me, I can be easily seen, look at this flag of your enemy, and try to shoot me!!!!!”
Many whites felt as if colored people and whites should not attend the same schools. Segregation was not just in schools but in the communities as well. Laws such as Jim Crow Law stopped the colored and the white people from seating, eating, and playing together, “It shall be unlawful for a negro and white person to play together or in company with each other in any game of cards or dice, dominoes or checkers” (americanhistory.si.edu). White as if they were more superior then the Colored people, “African Americans were reminded that most of their fellow citizens believed them to be inferior and undeserving of equal treatment” (Sharp 39). It was very hard for a colored person to find a job, they worked as farmhands, servants or janitors.
