The characters in To Kill a Mockingbird

This quotation tells about the culture and lifestyle of Maycomb that was a small and old town that has nothing to do. People in the city did not have enough money to buy things, the men of the city used to wear collars and women used to wear talcum powders. The streets were filled with dirt and individuals did not have any money to go or do something. This shows the lifestyle, clothing and routine of the people. It demonstrates about the culture of the city and their economical status (Lee).
‘nigger-lover is just one of those terms that don’t mean anything – like snot nos. Its hard to explain ignorant, trashy people use it when they think somebody’s favouring..” (Lee 59).
This quote of Scout reflects that even if any individual admired a black person he had no meaning or respect in the city. Any people who were inclined toward back people (mockingbird) in the city were actually running behind nothing. They were actually after a trash that actually had no meaning and justification to acquire. Here it shall be observed that a person who had black color were represented through a word ‘negga’ and did not have any respect in the society (Lee).
‘While gentlemen, we know is in itself a lie as black as Tom Robinson’s skin, a lie I don’t have to point out to you. You know that truth, and the truth is this: Some Negroes lie, some Negroes are immoral, some Negro men are not to be trusted around women.’
Analyzing this quotation it shall be noted that because Tom Robinson was black he was considered to be a liar in the society.
