The good stuff in chapter 22-23

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.

  1. i always read stories online like this- that back when racism was really strong everywhere to even now, kids will just see each other as equals no matter what and they dont think that anyone should be treated differently because of the color of their skin

  2. I really liked the quote you chose! That was the same one I chose, so it must be a good one! I liked reading your understanding of the quote versus mine! VERY COOL!

  3. I love how you said that the childen don’t judge people by their skin color. It makes me think that we should all be like lil chidlers and not judge people
