To Kill a Mockingbird, Hypocrisy
Transcript of To Kill a Mockingbird, Hypocrisy
Hypocrisy Lula Miss Gates Hypocrisy is shown by
Miss Gates when she shifts
between extremes in opinions.
She is saying that the people of Maycomb County aren't prejudice even though she is prejudice. She says what Hitler is doing is bad, but she and the rest of Maycomb are doing the same. They are treating the black people like Hitler does to the Jews. Lula is hypocritical because she says,"You ain't
got no business bringin' white chillun here-they got their church, and we got our'n" Pg. 158
She claims that they are white and thinks that they are prejudice like the rest of Maycomb, but she is also prejudice towards white people. She claims to be the victim of the white people, but they are also victims of black people. BOB EWELL Aunt Alex Hypocrisy in this story is shown by Bob Ewell .
Bob Ewell is abusive to his daughter,Mayella.
When he is asked to speak his part in court, he denies ever hitting Mayella, that it was Tom Robinson when it wasn't. Bob also acts like he is perfect, when he really drinks a lot. Aunt Alex shows hypocrisy in To Kill a Mockingbird. One example of Aunt Alex being a hypocrite is the incident with Cousin Joshua. Joshua tried to kill the president, but Aunt Alex sticks up for him because he is family. However, when the kids talk about Walter it's an entirely different story. "The fact is, he is not kin to us, but if he were, my answer would still be the same." pg. 224
