Hello, I am looking for someone to write an article on To Kill a Mocking Bird. It needs to be at least 1500 words. One way we can really know is by the writer’s word in literature or school books. One way has been exposed is in “To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee in which she depicts the racial problems of the Deep South in 1930.
In To Kill A Mockingbird, Harper Lee uses many characters in the book, including Atticus, Jem, Scout and Tom to convey the major themes of the story regarding courage, racism and stereotyping to the reader. The story clearly describes the issue of racism as it was in the 1920s and 1930s in America. It is a story which revolves around a black named Tom Robinson who is accused of raping a girl which he has not even done. Racism can be seen in the very core of the theme of the story. The story shows that blacks have always been treated inferior to other races and because of their ethnicity and color they have always been blamed for things that they have not even done.
The story shows how a town gets one-sided when it comes to the issue of rape of a girl by a black. The black named Tom Robinson provides with enough evidence that he is not committed the crime but no one believes him because of his color. The treatment of Tom Robinson in the story can clearly tell that the jury was being biased only because he was black. Not only this but racism is also shown in the words of the characters in the story. As at one instance Scout clearly states that “He’s just a nigger’.
Racism, as practiced in the society against blacks, is seen in the courtroom as told by Lee. This can be clearly seen in the character of Mr. Gilmer when he cross-examines Tom Robinson. It is seen how Mr. Gilmer makes a mockery out Tom’s story. It is seen that even the judge is not objecting to Tom Robinson’s treatment by Mr. Gilmer. .
