Tom Robinson is an innocent victim of prejudice in society In the novel To Kill a Mockingbird Harper Lee portraits Tom Robinson as a man who is a victim of racial prejudice While reading the novel I learned that most white people of the town of Maycomb didnt really like coloured folks like Tom Robinson White people hardly had any respect for them because they thought Negroes were completely worthless compared to them Its really sad to see that the coloured people were being judged by their skin colour instead of their actions On page 75 it says why id Cecil say you defend niggers This shows us that even the young children of Maycomb had no respect for the black people One thing that white people never realized is that coloured folks are just like them human beings Like all human beings they had feelings and they should be treated just like the white people Tom Robinson lived in a town where black people like him are treated inferiorly compared to the rest of society You would never see a black man at the head of a company giving orders to a white man Black people always had the hardest jobs of all mostly manual labour They also couldnt go to the same church as the white people If Tom Robinson went to a white church he would get looked at and probably get sworn at On page 156 it says You know its a funny thing about Braxton he despises Negroes wont have one near him This quote tells us how much hatred some white people had for the coloured folks To them having black skin is like a disease you should not be socializing with Negroes The thought of even standing beside Tom Robinson or being friends with him disgusted them A huge majority of the white folks of Maycomb gave an impression that Negroes and them should never live
