Yet a wise man such as Atticus does not fully understand how the citizens of Maycomb can be so irrational and unjust in their prejudiced views of others. This is shown in Part one of Harper Lee’s novel as Atticus tells his brother Jack, ‘Why reasonable people go stark raving mad when anything involving a Negro comes up, is something I will never truly understand.’ Atticus is a great influence on Scout through his actions and words, however he does not force her to act in this way. Atticus has the highest respect for everyone in Maycomb, regardless of gender, age or race. This is shown in his defence for Tom Robinson and his employment and loyalty to Calpurnia. He also demonstrates this when he explains Boo-Radley’s situation and reprimands Scout for treating a boy at her school badly because he was of lower class.
Huck realizes that racism and slavery are very immoral and this encourages him to keep helping Jim to freedom. The racism in Huck’s society affect his perception of right and wrong because most of the people who had an influence on him thought that slavery was a good thing and were, in general, racist people. He couldn’t make his mind up between what was right or wrong because he had to choose either; what society thought was right, slavery, lynching or what his heart thought was right, helping his friend Jim. When Jim was sold from the Duke and the King Huck becomes scared and begins to write a letter to a previous caretaker, Miss Watson, then he had “to decide, forever, betwixt two things, and [he] knowed it. [He] studied a minute, sort of holding [his] breath, and then says to [himself]:"All right, then, I'll go to hell"- and tore it up.”(Twain 214) He
“ I knowed he was white inside (40). Huck states that though Jim is African American, he has intellectual thoughts and a lack of education does not change the way Jim thinks and cares. “Jim was most ruined, for a servant because he got stuck up on account of having seen the devil and been rode by witches.” (9).Most people judged Jim, not only because of the color of his skin, but the fact that he spoke differently then white folk. In The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn Jim continues to make intelligent thoughts and problems to the pairs sticky situations and proves to the reader that the southern stereotypes in the 1800’s were racist and

I feel bad that the man had to change the way he walked, talked and acted to make sure no one accused him or thought of him as a murder or thief. I think it is quite pathetic how people are so judgmental on black people. Even though this story took place between the late 1970s and 1980s, accusing someone of something just from there looks is just unacceptable. If I were in the shoes of this man whom was constantly stared at by others, and accused of wrong doings of which he didn't even commit, I would not change a thing about my self. God made us the way we are, he made us look the way we look, talk the way we talk, and walk the way we walk, and for that reason I believe no one should change them selves for the happiness of others.

This shows Janie standing up for herself against Logan because she feels that she doesn’t have to work if she doesn’t want to. She says that he is only mad that she doesn’t worship him and his land and that he is upset that she is even saying anything to him about it in the first place. Logan probably didn’t expect her to stand up for herself like that. After that, she finished making the breakfast, walked out the door, and left to meet Joe Starks, who she had met a couple of days before. During the beginning of Janie’s twenty year marriage to Joe, she loved his appeal, ambition, and sense of style.
