“They’ve done it before and they did it tonight and they’ll do it again and when they do it- seems that only children weep.” is a quote from chapter 22 in To Kill a Mockingbird. Harper Lee is talking about the blacks and whites and how some white people will take advantage of a negro and put him in jail for something he didn’t do and only the children are sad because they haven’t been taught yet to hate the colored and treat them like trash because of their skin tone. It just goes to show that your belief window is made up of things you’ve been taught or have seen. You acquire many of these beliefs based on how your parents treat others and have taught you. The children are the only ones who see the act of whites cheating blacks wrong because they don’t yet understand how the rest of their race views the colored and how superior they should act because of it. Another quote from chapter 23 states, “You’ll see white men cheat black men every day of your life, but let me tell you something and don’t you forget it- whenever a white man does that to a black man, no matter who he is, how rich he is, or how fine a family he comes from, that white man is trash.” Atticus is the man who states both of these quotes and is saying that no matter your race, it’s not alright to cheat someone because of their race, disabilities, gender, and so on.
