She shows it through Atticus, Tom Robinson and the Negro community and Arthur “Boo” Radley. Social inequality can happen to someone because of a choice they made like Atticus or because of his or her color like the Negroes in the book or even because you are antisocial like Arthur. The era of the story had a big affect on all the examples because in the thirties it was wrong for a white man to actually try to defend a black man and, it was expected that Negroes were bad people when they were not. With Arthur’s case it is different, his was because of the fact they lived in a small town where everyone was in each others’ business
Language used in of mice and men. Of mice and men is a short book (novella) that was written during the harsh depression of the 1930’s. It conveys the ideals of two migrant workers.

Prejudice is Everywhere “There’s nothing more sickening to me than a low-grade white man who’ll take advantage of a Negro’s ignorance” (Lee 221). Atticus, the narrator’s father in To Kill a Mockingbird, expresses his disgust in the manner of how white men treat the African-American race. This part of the novel is only one example of the prejudices observed in To Kill a Mockingbird, as the novel highlights the issue throughout. Racism was a major issue a large number of men, women, and even children had to face during the time periods of the novels To Kill a Mockingbird and The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. Scout, the protagonist of To Kill a Mockingbird, is a young girl living in Maycomb, Alabama.
It was very hard to get a job during that time. Men had to travel by themselves to find work for themselves. These men were known as itinerant works. They had no fixed address, they belonged nowhere and they usually had no company – “Guys like us, that work on ranches, are the loneliest guys I the world.” In this novel, the loneliness makes the characters change the way they behave. “A guy goes mad if he got no one to talk to.” The two protagonists, George Milton and Lennie Smalls, travel together to find work; when they do, they have to leave because of an ‘incident’ caused by Lennie.

Montag was well aware before the scene because when he met Clarisse she made him notice life and actually woke up to society. The reason it is significant is because he never experienced those things and if he did he never actually paid attention because he was so caught up with television and starting fires. He was also concerned with moving fast and being oppressed.
This makes the reader sympathize for Crooks’s unfortunate life. He is also portrayed as a well-educated man. He seems to have lots of books, including a ‘tattered dictionary and a mauled copy of the Californian civil code.’ Even though he has had good education, he still works in a ranch when he could have got a better job. He probably was discriminated for his skin colour and therefore lost his chance of having a comfortable life. This pictures Crooks as
