Maycomb Theme



The theme that stood out to me and i thought it should be emphasized on, is racism. Racism in this time period was huge and i could see how some people didn't identify it as much of a problem or situation. In to Kill a Mockingbird everyone just accepted that colored people, no matter how educated or successful they are or could be, they would be classified as lower class people. Some quotes from To Kill A Mockingbird related to Racism is when Atticus tells scout that,"you never understand a person until you consider things from his point of view..until you climb into his skin and walk around in it." This refers to not judging a person on the outside and how they look because you don't know what they are truly  going through. Another one is by Judge Taylor,"People generally see what they look for, and hear what they listen for." He refers that as soon as people have an idea or judgement in their head they will not heifer reasoning and will block any logic because they won't change how they see things. Thats how it is with people on the thoughts about racism.
