Good Stuff from To Kill a Mockingbird

In to Kill a Mockingbird, there are many great messages. One such message has to do with the quote from Atticus on page 243:”It[the trial and Tom Robinson’s conviction]’s just as much Maycomb County as missionary teas.” This quote is telling us that Racism and convicting an innocent black man was completely normal in that time in the South. Antoher quote that communicates this is what Atticus later says on page 243: “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.” These are all just explaining how normal racism was, and how nobody cared, except for children who didn’t understand.
