Prejudice is a foggy window which we all look out of It impairs not only sight but also our thoughts and actions When we look through the window not everyone can see past the fog Sometimes we see people and think they are our enemies when really they are just a little bit different then us be they a different race or even a different sex These prejudice views are not uncommon even though most of the time they are wrong To Kill a MockingBird presents many conflicting pictures of prejudice the situations also show that prejudice can be overcome An example of viewing things differently is when Aunt Alexandra forbid Scout to play with Walter Cunningham a poor boy whom Scout attends school with This is because Aunt Alexandra sees Walter and his family as poor and beneath the Finches in her words theyre good folks But theyre not our kind of folks Scout on the other hand doesnt care about how much money Walter has but about his potential to be a friend She doesnt let irrelevant things like money cloud her judgment of people The most typical of all prejudice views is that of race An example of this is during Tom Robinsons trial Tom was a black man accused of raping a white woman a crime that is punishable by the death penalty Even though all the facts proved that he didnt do it the jury still found him guilty beyond a reasonable doubt Toms life has been sacrificed to racism by the people who were there to protect him The justice system didnt allow this man to have a fair trial because of the color of his skin They disregarded his credibility or that of the other witnesses all they could focus on
