To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee
Injustice is a problem which everyone faces. Nobody likes
to suffer from injustice, yet they do it to others. In the
novel, " To Kill A Mockingbird " written by Harper Lee,
there are three characters who suffer the most injustice.
They are Atticus, Tom Robinson and Boo Radley.
Atticus, a man with great wisdom, suffers from the fact
that he had taken on a Negro case. He was constantly
persecuted for his decision, which made him work even
harder at winning the case. Even though his family was made
fun of, he stuck with his choice and worked the hardest he
could to ignore the threats and harassment. He did very
well to ignore all the abuse and was greatly respected
after the trial was over.
Another person who suffered from injustice was Tom
Robinson. He was charged with a crime he did not commit.
His side of the story was not believed because he was
black, which really shows the amount of injustice during
the time the novel was set in. Through the whole trial, he
did not retaliate at the white people, he did not get mad
because he was improperly accused, he just showed the level
of respect which everyone deserves. He handled the
injustice with a manner reserved only for gentlemen, which
is a good description of what he really was.
The third person to suffer injustice in the novel was Boo
Radley. Many accusations were claimed about him even though
they were untrue. Just because he didn't leave his house,
people began to think something was wrong. Boo was a man
who was misunderstood and shouldn't of suffered any
injustice. Boo did not handle the injustice because he
didn't know about it.
In conclusion, the person who deserves the deepest sympathy
is Tom Robinson. He did nothing wrong but his crime was
being nice to white people. This type of injustice is the
worst because everyone puts up with it. Therefore, Atticus,
Tom Robinson and Boo Radley suffered the most injustice in
