The priest demands that a goat and a hen be sacrificed, and that he also pay a fine of one length of cloth and one hundred cowries (shells used as currency). Okonkwo repents for his sin and follows the priest’s orders. Okonkwo also accidentally killed the Chief’s son, which resulted in his banishment from the tribe for 7 years. In conclusion, Okonkwo's violent tendencies ended up leading to his alienation from his family, tribe, and larger community. He abused his wives, killed Ikemefuna, and killed the chief's son.
He's my son! He'd rather see these no-good punks than his own mother? You scum…” Mrs. Cade. The reason for his low self-esteem and him losing his innocence by killing Bob is because he has to deal with lack of parental love. The extent of your loss of innocence also depends on the environment you are raised in.
The problem with Bone is that he is scared of his stepdad. Bone’s stepdad threatens him by saying some nasty words to him like, as he says “all the time he said he’d cut off my d*** if I told” (pg. 196). I think what makes bone leaves his family is that he doesn’t want anyone to know about the times when his stepdad abuses him. He is afraid of what the society would think of him just like when he says “no one’d believe me” (page 296).

He also learns that his grandfather was a dominating, immoral and scheming. David and his parents went face to face with dealing with the consequences of Frank’s crime. Racial prejudice means any action practice or belief that reflects the racial world view the ideology that humans are divided into separate groups because of their skin colour. The American Indians are racially prejudiced by most of the people in Montana, they are going through a hard life and living in a desolate reservation; also their lands are probably the least valuable compare to other regions. David eventually learns of the racial discriminations such as not allowing “an athlete like Ronnie” to attend college.
Trying to become a king in general can be extremely difficult, and it can be even more challenging to gain the respect of your people if it was your brother that you received the crown from. The fear of seeming like a weak and passive king to the people made Creon make many wrong decisions that eventually cost Antigone and his family their lives. The first mistake that Creon made was making such a bold promise to kill whoever buried the body of Antigone’s brother. He made this promise in order to try and instill fear into his people and in turn insure their respect. After finding out who it was that laid the body to rest, he had no choice but to fulfill his promise of killing them to show his people that his first official act as king was a non-compromising one.
While talking to Mr. Harrison he says,"My son and I didn't see eye to eye on the native question, John. In fact, he and I got quite heated about it on more than one occasion" (170). This conversation shows Jarvis' racism and how it upset his son to the point where they would yell at each other over it. All Arthur Jarvis was trying to do was to get his father to understand his views on natives of South Africa. James Jarvis was very disconnected from his son's life.
Finally his ability to tell people what they want to hear allows him to topple Ralph as chief. In the course of events Jack is responsible for the deaths of two boys. One is killed because he and his enfuriated tribe members cannot see clearly anymore. They cannot see Simon coming out from the forest, but an enemy who they think they must kill. The second murder he also allows to happen.
In contrast to Mayella, Tom Robinson was treated as if he were not worth anything, for example he was being called Boy, big buck, when he was being questioned. When Mr Gilmer asked for Tom’s reason for helping Mayella, Tom admitted he had felt sorry for her. “ ‘.. I felt sorry for her, she seemed to try more’n the rest of ‘em-‘ ..‘You felt sorry for her, you felt sorry for her?’ Mr Gilmer seemed ready to rise to the ceiling”. (Page 217/218) No black man should feel sorry for a white person.
The Indians’ actions of chasing out missionaries and driving off surveyors with axes and not allowing whites in their villages portrays them as people who have a pessimistic attitudes towards the other races. The Colonizing Society also portrays the antagonistic/hostile attitude toward other races. This is seen in the mounted policeman’s conversation with Ms. Carr in Kitwangak. “We have no end of trouble with those people- chased missionaries out and drove out surveyors off with axes- simply won’t have whites in their village” (148). The colonizing Society also has the pessimistic attitude of hostility and unfriendliness with the Indians and they advised Ms. Carr not to visit Kitwancool.
