    1. 1. To Kill A Mockingbird Written By: Harper Lee
    2. 2. Theme: Racism
    3. 3. 1. How do the majority of whites in Maycomb view Tom Robinson?
    4. 4. The majority of white people in Maycomb arenot fond of Tom Robinson at all. Tom’s entirelife he has been respectful and kind. He hasnot bothered anyone in the town ofMaycomb. The only reason the white familiesdo not like him is because of his race.Answered By: Owen Gillis
    5. 5. 2. Why does the Old Sarum Bunch show up at the Jailhouse?
    6. 6. The Old Sarum Bunch shows up at the jailhousebecause, Tom Robinson, the man who is accusedof raping Mayella, is being held there until trial.They know Atticus is a great lawyer and has achance of proving Tom innocent. And they did notwant that to happen. So they show up at thejailhouse to kill him, however Atticus is preparedto defend Tom, although unnecessary becauseScout ends up getting them all to go home.Answered By: Blake Chase
    7. 7. 3. Is the jury fair when they convict Tom Robinson of rape?
    8. 8. No, because Mayella was bruised on only theleft side of her body, but Tom has no use ofhis right arm, because he caught it in a millmachine. So he wouldn’t be able to hit her onthe left side. In the end, Tom Robinson wassaid to be guilty, only because he was ablack man and for no other reason.Answered By: Ashley Tapia

    10. 10. “As you grow older, youll see white men cheat black men every dayof your life, but let me tell you something and dont you forget it -whenever a white man does that to a black man, no matter who heis, how rich he is, or how fine a family he comes from, that whiteman is trash.” -Atticus (295)"Why reasonable people go stark raving mad when anythinginvolving a Negro comes up, is something I dont pretend tounderstand." -Atticus (117)"I dont know [how they could convict Tom Robinson], but they didit. Theyve done it before and they did it tonight and theyll do itagain and when they do it-seems that only children weep."-Atticus (225)"Theyre certainly entitled to think that, and theyre entitled to fullrespect for their opinions," said Atticus, "but before I can live withother folks Ive got to live with myself. The one thing that doesntabide by majority rule is a persons conscience." -Atticus (114)They shot him, said Atticus. He was running. It was during theirexercise period. They said he just broke into a blind raving chargeat the fence and started climbing over. Right in front of them-’”-Atticus (235)
