Hate in To Kill A Mocking Bird At the time it was written To Kill a Mockingbird was looked down upon since there was so much hatred towards negroes Few people in the United States realized the unjustified prejudice against the negro The novel focuses on how the main character Atticus Finch deals with the controversy surrounding his actions and how he tries to shelter his family from it The books climax where it is brought to a final solution takes place at the trial A woman named Mayella Ewell accuses a black man named Tom Robinson of rape In truth these claims are false but she knows she can get away with it since the people in those days had the utmost respect for white women Black men were looked down upon as still being slaves even if they werent in shackles The main character Atticus Finch defends Tom throughout the case He comes under fire and is commonly known in the neighborhood as a Nigger lover authors name and page for defending Tom His childrens friends make fun of them at school since their father is defending Tom Atticus tries his best to be a fair lawyer like he always was and knows that Tom didnt commit the rape The trial comes around and Mayella Ewell is very confident she will win the case because of her standing in society as a respectable woman who would never lie over her honor When it comes time for Atticus to question Mayella he proves that indeed Tom couldnt have committed the rape Mayella is silent and then the jury leaves to come up with a verdict Although they know Tom was innocent the case now becomes a trial of honor of whom to say is wrong When they come back they find Tom guilty He is sentenced to be hung and it is carried out Thus ends the climax
