Prejudice is a real life problem in the world In To Kill A Mockingbird Harper Lee describes the prejudices found in a small American town in the 1930s Race social class and gender are examples of prejudice Racial prejudice is discrimination based on the color of ones skin An example is when Tom Robinson is convicted in his trial Tom was convicted because he was a black man and his word was not considered as important or truthful as a white mans word Tom never should have been accused of the crime but because whites do not trust blacks he was found guilty Atticus Toms attorney recognized the system wasnt going to change When its a white mans word against a black mans the white man always wins 220 Another example is that blacks have to sit in a separate section of the courtroom away from the white people Blacks have to sit in another section because white people believe that they are superior People of Maycomb already have blacks on a lower class than any white man just because of the color of their skin A third example of racial prejudice is when Scout learns that blacks cannot go to a white persons church Whites think that they are again better than blacks because of their skin color They are blinded by the opinion that blacks are not good enough to sit in the same church as themselves Even though blacks are not allowed into a church with whites they start their own churches to worship together Racial prejudice is a controversial issue that adds suspense and drives the plotAnother kind of prejudice is social prejudice Social prejudice is discrimination based on your status in society The towns people are more respected and on a higher social class than a farmer because of their wealth and occupation Both the farmer and townspeople usually work equally as hard and are both probably very respectable people
