Transcript of How To Kill A Mockingbird Relates To The Real World

How
To Kill A Mockingbird
Relates To The World Today

Being Different
When Walter was invited inside to eat, he poured molasses all over his plate. Scout is quick to judge anything different from her way of doing things. Calpurnia, though, insists that Walter, and by extension all people who are different, deserve respect. This relates to today because anyone who does anything outside of the main crowd, like having a different style or not listening to mainstream music are automatically judged,
called weird, and made fun of instead of being accepted in society.
Growing Up
There are many learning experiences in
To Kill A Mockingbird
, this relates to the world today because children and teenagers are always doing things that can potentially get them into a lot of trouble, yet they do not think about the outcome. But when they do get caught, they know not to do it again.
Human Dignity
Atticus and Boo Radley show human dignity by respecting all people despite who they, where they come from, or how they are living. There are only a handful of people like this today, society is so quick to judge others and treat them like they don't matter.
Life In The South
As time goes by, Scout and Jem realize that the only reason they were having a good experience in Maycomb was because of their wealth. They then understood that it was a very racist and unsafe place for more unfortunate people. The South has always been one of the worst places for people of color as far as I know. To today, it remains an extremely racist part of the country.
Racism
Racism was a big issue in "To Kill a Mockingbird", which, unfortunately is still a massive problem today. Examples of racism in the book include "In our courts, when it's a white man's word against a black man's, the white man always wins." Today, this structure still stands. It may not be as strong now as it was then, but if a white man accused a black man of doing something wrong, authorities would believe the white man over the black man's, no matter what evidence shows.
The End
Hope you enjoyed!
