They never really got along, however he continues in the text saying that after his father’s death he began to contemplate and wonder why this was. He came to the retaliation that his father was very paranoid even with his own family. Before his death, he stopped eating food from his family because he believed they were trying to poison him. The rest of his essay speaks of the harsh society during the era of the civil rights movement. His father despised white people and barely ever trusted any of them, which was the stem of his paranoia.
Children are children, but they can spot an evasion quicker than adults, and evasion simply muddles’ em.” Everybody expected that Atticus is very narrow minded, and that he does not think for anyone or anything but himself. Never does anyone understand what it is that goes through Atticus’s mind during his actions. Deep down in Atticus’s mind, everything that he did was only to protect Scout and Jem.

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.

These men wanted to have their own costumes that would represent the Klan. Because they were poor they decide to use white linens that would not only drape over themselves, but their horses as well and wear pillow cases over their heads. In the beginning the intention was to have a little fun at night by playing pranks people as means to get people to laugh. Unfortunately no one found anything they did to be humorous at all; the people were frightened by the men more than anything. In finding out that this scared people more than anything the Klan decided to grow from there and turn the tables on the soon-to-be free slaves that were starting to take over the
However, Uncle didn’t know the truth behind this brutal and aggressive accident where Scout, not Francis gets in trouble. This accident shows the way it was normal to say about black people because parents who were disrespectful for slaves, were showing racism to their children. However, Scout accepts this phrase as a horrible thing because she knows that Atticus is not like other people-he respects everybody and does not teach Scout and Jem to be racists because it
He thought ‘kids like him’, the defendant, should be punished, because he sees his son in the 16-year-old defendant. Although he asserts, “I have no personal feelings in this case”, the audience realize this is untrue, especially in his last monologue when he shouts, “I know him”. Clearly, his personal feelings cause him to vote ’guilty’. However, when the 8th Juror reminds Juror 3,” It’s not your boy”, the 3rd Juror finally understands he was wrong not to consider there was any reasonable doubt about the evidence because of his weakness of selfishness. 3rd Juror recognize himself due to his prejudice.

In To Kill a Mockingbird, Atticus defends Tom Robinson, a black man accused of raping a white woman, in a court trial. The town of Maycomb turns against him due to this. Atticus, furious about the reaction from his town, explains, “…why reasonable people go stark raving mad when anything involving a negro comes up, is something I don’t pretend to understand” (Lee 88). Atticus does not have any racial biases, and he does not agree with the views of the majority of the people of Maycomb. Atticus, describing his beliefs to Jem, “…The one place where a man ought to get a square deal is in a courtroom, be
