In chapter 22 Atticus says At the trial for Tom Robinson Jem was really excited because he was sure that they were going to win. At the end of the trial Robinson was said guilty, but everybody knew that he was not guilty and that Mr. Ewell had beaten up Mayella. Jem started crying and saying that its not fair and right before Jem and Scout go to bed atticus says “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.” This quote is really interesting. Because its saying that children don’t really judge people by their skin color or what job they have. They judge on how kind and fun the person is. I think this quote is trying to tell us that kids really do understand whats going on maybe even more than the adults do. The children don’t care what people look like, it’s how they act.
