A Summary of To Kill A Mockingbird
(Essay #13) In the 1930's life was varied, especially in Alabama. In Harper Lee's novel, To Kill a Mockingbird, it can be seen that life in Alabama was very different than it is now. The community in 1930's Alabama did not consider human rights very important if the person was black. If the person was white they had a wide range of rights. Education was very limited and learning to read by phonics was just an experiment to them. Education wasn't that important to the community, since the best educated Ewell only had two years of schooling. The justice system was decent back then, but the juror system was to prejudicial. The people judging the fates of people had either no education or were completely racist or prejudged defendants. Equality was not thought of back in the 1930's. There was no equality of Negroes and whites. Negroes were thought of as inferior, or if you didn't think so that you were trash. There are some common societal problem with the 1930's and today. Prejudice and unequality still exist today. Although it isn't as strong as it was back then. They still exist to some extent. The justice system is messed up in both cases. Instead of people convicting for anything in 1930, people aren't convicting now. In 1930 were someone can die with almost no evidence, has now changed to a mountain of evidence and letting the man go free. Education is now more important than it was in 1930. It is mandatory to at least go through the twelfth grade where it wasn't back then. Things have changed since 1930 and ideals on equality have changed dramatically. While there are still small bands of people who are still racist, it is not nearly as many as there were in 1930. The justice system is still messed up as it was in the 1930s. It is solely the jury that messes up in making decisions and cases. The jurors are letting to many guilty people go free while in the 1930s they let to many innocent men go to jail. I guess I would rather let guilty men go free, but it is still frustrating to see murders go free. But the American society has evolved since the 1930s and will continue to do so towards the future. I will do much to help the future. I will continue to get a good education to someday help me when I have to serve for jury duty. I may run for a political position when I am older to help the country run better. I will help with voluntary services like I have now with Key club and other programs. If anything, at least spread a message of anti-hate, and at least slow down prejudice and racism. Nothing can hurt more than racism. It has to be slowed down as it is spreading extremely fast. It cannot be ignored. The message of anti-hate has to be spread, before the country collapses with people killing people based solely on the color of their skin.
