To Kill A Mockingbird: Theme
Major Theme: Social Inequality
Sociality in Maycomb is not equal through the kids and the adults and the blacks and whites. People are discriminated by being trashy, white, black, southern, rich, and poor. The Finch family is known as the most social clan in the town, because they accept people for who they are. It is kind of like the feudal system in the Renaissance time period, because the families of Maycomb are ranked by their sociality.
