  1. 1. The theme of Racial Injustice By Wynter Hale
  2. 2. Theme of Racial Injustice Towards African Americans <ul><li>Racial injustice has been an ongoing issue in society as early as the 1700s. It has been the cause of such events, as Slavery, the Civil Right Movement, the beating of Rodney King, the murder of Amadou Diallo and still continues through modern day with such incidents as, and the genenocide that is currently happening in Daufor </li></ul><ul><li>The novel To Kill a Mockingbird, by author Harper Lee, was the inspiration for the theme of racial injustice towards African Americans. It houses many mind blowing themes that raise questions to social issues, such as racism. Racism is the belief that a certain race is superior or inferior to that of another. Throughout the 1930’s, African Americans were most commonly targeted for racist responds, seeing as they were of a darker complexion than their “superior” Caucasians. To Kill a Mockingbird explains a black mans trial for the accusation of raping a white woman. Throughout this novel the reader comes to realize that the black man (Tom Robinson) is wrongfully accused, and has all the evidence needed to plead his case, but in Maycomb, Alabama, where the novel takes place, every person has their place in the “order of society”, and a strict social system seemed to control all aspects of their integrity and behavior. This novel’s illustration of racial injustice displays such a lasting impression on its readers, and is a passage way that opens the door to the true events of racialism and racial injustice up to the 21 st century. </li></ul>
