To Kill A Mockingbird - Moral



In the novel To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee, the author intends the reader to learn that you shouldn't judge people by there race. Later on I will be telling you about a life as the Cunningham's, Bob Ewell, and Atticus. So if you listen up and pay attention you will almost be as smart as me.


The Cunninghams were the poor family they were so poor they couldn't afford shoes for the family and they also never had any food. "Walter Cunningham's face told everybody in the first grade he had hookworms. His absence of shoes told us how he got them." Page 19. This quote shows that the Cunningham's don't have a lot of money at all. This quote also shows that the Cunningham's are so poor they cant even afford a pair of shoes. "Walter Cunningham was sitting there lying his head off. He didn't forget his lunch, he didn't have any. He had none today nor would he have any tomorrow or the next day. He had probably never seen three quarters together at the same time in his life." Page 20. This quote shows that the Cunningham's are so poor they can't even take care of there own child. This quote also shows that the Cunningham's never have any money and they cant afford food. The Cunningham's would be a very hard family to be, because you would have nothing you own right now, you would be flat broke.


Mr. Bob Ewell was a lazy man, and not very many people like him. "The first thing was that Mr. Bob Ewell acquired and lost a job in a matter of days and probably made himself unique in the annals of the nineteen-thirties: he was the only man I ever herd of who was fired from the WPA for laziness." Page 248. This quote shows that Bob Ewell is a really lazy man. This quote also shows that Bob Ewell doesn't try anything hard, not even for money. "First thing you can do, Ewell, is get your stinkin' carcass off my property. You're leanin' on it an' I cant afford fresh paint for it, second thing you can do is stay away from my cook or I'll have you up for assault-" Page 249. This quote shows that Bob Ewell is hated. This quote also shows that people don't like Mr. Ewell because of his race. Not very many people liked Bob Ewell because he's lazy and his skin color isn't the right color.


Atticus was a strong man and he always knew what was the right thing to do. "Atticus derived a reasonable income from the law. He liked Maycomb, he was Maycomb County born and bred; he knew his people, they knew him, and because of Simon Finch's industry, Atticus was related by blood or marriage to nearly every family in the town." Page 5. This quote shows that Atticus loves where he lives, and likes the people in it. This quote also shows that Atticus new almost every one in Maycomb County. "We're the safest folks in the world, said Miss Maudie. We're so rarely called on to be Christians, but when we are, we've got men like Atticus to go for us." Page 215. This quote shows that Atticus is really tough. This quote also shows that Atticus is really nice and he sticks up for people. Atticus was a smart helpful person to be around, and he always did what was right. In the novel, To Kill A Mockingbird, The author intends the reader to learn that Racism is stupid and you shouldn't judge someone on how they look, there age, there color, or even these days if you are blond or not, hair color has nothing to do with how smart you are. That is just like saying that sense I have brown eyes I should suck at skateboarding. I think hating someone for something that they cant help is just plain stupid.
