Prejudice In Justice The case of Tom Robinson in the book To Kill A Mockingbird reminds me of a trial that actually occurred only a few years ago that was the infamous OJ Simpson case The two cases have many of the same traits but ended up being very different While the cases are a lot alike there are some characteristics that are different One major point of interest for me is the race of the suspects in both cases In both the Tom Robinson case and the OJ Simpson trial the men suspected of the crimes are black Although this seems a little curious now it wasnt in the time of Tom Robinson In that time in the south a lot of people were racist and black people were frequently accused of crimes they didnt commit The race of the suspects is something that is significant in the comparison of these two trials Another notable fact is the race of the victims in the two cases In the two trials all the victims Nicole Brown and Ron Goldman in the OJ trial and Mayella Ewell in Tom Robinsons trial were white In To Kill A Mockingbird the victim was Mayella a poor white girl who was abused by her father Although it wasnt proved her father abused her Mayella knew she could blame the crime on a black man and get away with it because of the racial tension in the south One of the victims in the OJ Simpson case was Nicole Brown OJs ex-wife who was white The second victim in the OJ trial was Nicole Browns friend Ron Goldman who was also white Although there are a lot of similarities between the two trials there are some differences also One difference is that a change of venue was made in one case but not in another In Tom Robinsons trial it was determined a change of venue wouldnt be necessary
