Transcript of Prejudice in "to kill a mockingbird."

To Kill A Mockingbird has many types of prejudice. and this is just some examples... and these are just a few examples... AGE One example of age prejudice which is considered a stereotyping stage that was described in the book was in Miss Maudie's and Scout's conversation about Mr. Arther. Miss Maudie said.. "You are too young to understand it."
Miss Maudie was refering to that Scout was not old enough to understand the ordeal with Mr. Arthur. Another example... was an isolation type, age prejudice. This prejudice was described when scout said,"I was to leave jem alone at school." Scout said this when jem said that she couldnt hang out with him because she was a younger age and might embarass him. Gender is the next type of prejudice. One example is when scout was describing what she did since Jem and Dill wouldnt let her play with them in the tree house since she was a girl. She said,"but i kept aloof from their more fool hardy schemes for a while, and on pain of being called a girl, i spent most of my remaining twilights that summer sitting on Miss Maudies porch" That past example was considered an isolation stage of prejudice and this next one is considered stereotyping. This example was when Miss Maudie was trying to explain to scout the situation with Mr. Arthur. she said,"but sometimes the bible in the hand of one man is worse than a whiskey bottle in the hand of-oh, of your father." Race is the next type of prejudice. One of the racial quotes that came from the book was from the conversation jem was having in the church. Jem said,"lets go home, Cal, they dont want us here." This example was an isolation stage because Jem felt he was unwanted there since it was an african american church. Another example which is also considered an isolation stage was from the conversation in the church with Lula. Lula said, "You ain't got no business bringin' white chillun here – they got their church, we got our'n. It is our church, ain't it, Miss Cal?" she was talking to Cal trying to get her to take Scout and Jem away from the church because they were white. Age prejudice still occurs today much like it did a long time ago like for example there is still restrictions on how old you have to be to drive and to buy certain things. Gender prejudice is not as bad as it used to be. In the past women were descriminated by not being able to vote and recieved low pay. Now a days there is very small gender prejudice in the U.S. still some jobs or occupations are gender stricken. Racial prejudice is nowhere as dramatic as it was in the past. In the past, african americans were denied a lot of rights. some examples are the right to vote, places were segregated, and whites treated african americans poorly Today racial prejudice is still there but much less drastic as it used to be. some african americans and other ethnic groups are still discriminated in some cities and countries.
