Equality & Racism
To kill a Mockingbird
To Kill a Mockingbird Quote
"Scout," said Atticus, "nigger-lover is just one of those terms that don't mean anything – like snot-nose. It's hard to explain – ignorant, trashy people use it when they think somebody's favoring Negroes over and above themselves. It's slipped into usage with some people like ourselves, when they want a common, ugly term to label somebody."
"You aren't really a nigger-lover, then, are you?"
"I certainly am. I do my best to love everybody... I'm hard put, sometimes – baby, it's never an insult to be called what somebody thinks is a bad name. It just shows you how poor that person is, it doesn't hurt you."
Remember the Titan's & To Kill a Mockingbird
- Both deal with racism among blacks and whites.
- Both have a young white girl trying to get involved and understand.
- Both have actions that take place trying to slove the problem of racism.
- Theres not a jury that upholds what goes on in Remember the Titan's.
