Scout, Dil and Jem often run past his house to tease him. But when gifts start appearing for Boo Scout starts to stop believing that he is a horrible monster but just a nice man. Her most important experience that leads her to an understanding about prejudice and the world was her ‘longest night’ which began as they left the school hall to go home with Scout still in her ham suit. They began to sense that someone was following them.
Racism and prejudice inside and outside, same races, and schools still happen today. In the book To Kill a Mockingbird there was a lot of racism in and out of the schools. As we both know Tom Robinson was accused of rape from Mayella Ewell. But in the court room when the judge is speaking to Tom, we as an audience realize that he did not rape her. From her story to the scar nothing matches up to what she is saying, but because he had an all white jury, they found him guilty.

Andy's first step in the coming of age process was complete. Unlike all the men she had tried to not let down, she felt guilty about killing an innocent creature.
Scout learns a major lesson which is not to kill a Mockingbird.

Scout now understands and see’s Boo as actually a real creature although she still points at him, which shows her transformation is still in progress she treats Boo like a real person. When Atticus fails to understand that Boo was the one who killed Bob, Scout explains Atticus a lesson which is usually visa versa, that you must never kill a Mockingbird and by exposing and giving him the negative publicity towards Boo it would be like killing him in a way.
Arthur Radley is later called a mockingbird by Scout, after she realizes that bringing him to court for saving her and her brother by stabbing Bob Ewell would be similar to shooting a mockingbird.

The story is enjoyable for its humorous portrayal of a family embarking on a vacation; O'Connor has been unforgiving in her portrayal of these characters. Misfit can be determine as sympathetic because he was wrongly punished, he had no other option than killing the family and polite and well mannered. Firstly, Misfit was wrongly accused for killing his father and was punished and sent to jail. I think Misfit did not killed his father because if he did he would remember it. He asks for the proof and paper work from cops but they did not show him.
