Kill a Mockingbird a Timeless Research Paper

Excerpt from Research Paper :

This is especially valid when considering the position of a white jury concerning a black man suspected of rape. Even with that, the only thing worse than a corrupt jury system is a racist angry mob. Although many white people in the South expressed racist beliefs during the early twentieth century, it is very probable that most of them were unable to argument their thinking. The novel is likely to fit perfectly in civil rights literature because of the way that it addresses the concept of racism.

The general style of the novel and the elements present in it "enable the student to begin the process of becoming a critical reader by learning that there is more to reading fiction than simply being able to tell "what happened" (Glenn). Boo Radley's character is most probably meant to be a reference to the fact that people should always look for good in other people. While Scout, Jem, and Dill were initially mystified with Boo, they eventually realized that he was a good man and regretted that they did were not thankful for his gifts. Similarly, the people of Maycomb failed to understand Tom Robinson's situation because they were prejudiced. Their reluctance to employ impartiality in judging him made it impossible for him to be given a fair chance.

Individuals like Atticus were actively engaged in civil rights movements during the early twentieth century. These people were determined to fight for the greater good, even with the fact that they turned against the will of the majority by doing this. In spite of the strength of will present in individuals fighting to provide African-Americans with equal rights, it was not until the second part of the century that matters ameliorated. The contemporary society, however, still holds numerous examples of people discriminating on account of race.
