This novel shows us that the race of someone effects the way they live and the way they are judged. Within the novel, we see racism attack an innocent black man named Tom Robinson. Tom was accused of raping a young white girl; Male Lowell. When Tom was taken to court he pleaded non-guilty. Even though Tom was not guilty of raping Male Lowell, lust because of his race he was sentenced his life in prison. This is purely because he was that he was a different race, and specifically wasn’t white.
Male knew that he was innocent, but because of Tom’s race she couldn’t come forward and say this because she would receive punishment for defending him. Tactics with Tom Robinson in the court. A similar event happened in the sass’s in small town Mississippi, where the black community were tortured by the whites and the black were constantly fighting for their lives. The Black community were terrorists by the ASK, by the burning of their house, the bombing of their churches and being beat up. All of this was occurring for no reason.
These small communities were getting destroyed Just because of the race of the people that live there. “Fighting for their lives” In To Kill a Mocking Bird’, Tactics was Tom’s lawyer. Tactics was white defending a black man. Yep, that’s correct. Justice should offer a helping hand. Because of Attic’s helping hand to Justice, he unpleasantly got threatened and got called “Amiga lover” by the white people of Macomb. Tactics could change the way people looked at people of other races and eliminate racism in his town.
It didn’t matter to generation to live happily and in Justice, not fighting. “.. Got threatened and got called Amiga lover” Back in Mississippi, The FBI was solving this crime of the 3 missing people, without racism affecting their Judgment. At the same time they were trying to help out the black community of this town. Moreover the ASK found out their dark secret and did all they could to threaten them. They were threatening to bomb their rooms and house by burning the post outside their house. Black persons house getting burnt down as a result of racism.
Racism takes lives of innocent people because of injustice. In Macomb, Tom Robinson was sentenced to a life time in prison for a crime he did not commit, he was imprisoned and killed. Tom was innocent, but Just because he was black he suffered. No matter what he did, what he said. Nothing mattered because of his race. When he was sentenced to prison, he didn’t even try and escape. Just for the fact that he knew there was no point. Nothing he did would change the fact that he was sentenced a life time in prison for something he did not do.
Lastly, in ‘Mississippi Burning, two white boys were killed because they were helping fight for civil rights and Justice for all. These boys were innocent and did not deserve to die. They were only trying to help the town and eradicate racism for one and for all. The scary thing is that, the innocent death toll wasn’t Just two. FBI agents being threatened by the ASK. ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’ Explores issues of racism that reflects to the events in Mississippi burning, with all of this taken into account, it is clear that over the 30 years racism has not been disregarded and still exist in its nastiest form.
It only takes one person to come forward and fight off this ghastly act. What is going to happen if this issue is not resolved? Could it get worse and go back to how it was in the sass’s? That’s the question. Yes it will get worse. And yes, maybe racism will go back in time and torture innocent people’s lives again. Just think, if you don’t do anything today that could be your child. Your child could be the one torturing innocents or even being tortured. One person is all it takes.
