The first demonstration that everyone should be treated equal is that even young people see people as just people. In Harper Lees "To Kill a Mockingbird", Scout says to Jem "I think theres just one kind of folks. Folks" (Lee 227). This demonstrates that everyone should be treated equal because in the novel even the children believe that everyone should be treated the same. Scout and Jem see Tom Robinson as a person and know he deserves a chance, and by the end of the novel they see Boo Radley as an equal as well. Children have not been exposed to the harsh judgement and rules of society, so they have the ability to see all people the way they really are, equal. A person is just a person, no matter their race or social standard, and Scout and Jem have the ability to see this.
The first reason Atticus is a good father is that he teaches his children good morals. For example, when Jem and Scout are talking about different kinds of people Scout says "' I think there's just one kind of folks. Folks'" (Lee 227). Scout does not see the differences in people because Atticus has taught his children to see all people as equal. When parents teach their children good morals, like equality, it leads to a better society. Those who view everyone as equal help to include everyone in society, and not discriminate. Atticus teaching his children good morals leads to more people being accepted in society.
The first reason children will be the ones to end racism can be seen through their ignorant views of society. For example, Scout said to Jem, "'I think there's just one kind of folks. Folks,'" (Lee 227). Since Scout is only a young child, she has not adopted the racist and discriminated views of her society. This is significant because through Scout and other children with the same ignorant and idealistic view of society, light will be shed on the wrongdoings of society. For any change to occur, a problem be pointed first. Since children have an ignorant view of society, they will the ones who end racism.
The first reason, why everyone should be treated equally is because everyone is human. Everyone is different but everyone is still human as Scout says "'I think there's just one kind of folks. Folks''' (Lee 227). Jem and Scout were discussing the different type of people in Maycomp but Scout realized it does not matter what skin colour they are, how much money they have, or the way they live because everyone is still human. This is significant because it brings back Tom Robinson's Trial and just because he is black he is not treated like a regular human being and should be given a fair trial. If all the children thought like scout there might not be any segregation at all to this day. This shows how society always seeks for power over other to maintain control therefore segregation is created .This proves that everyone should be treated equally.
The first reason that Scout proves to be non prejudice can be seen when she talks to her brother Jem about her tolerance for all people. Scout says to her brother, "'I think there's just one kind of folks. Folks"' (Lee 227). This quote shows that Scout is non prejudice because it demonstrates that Scout thinks that every person is equal even the blacks, like Tom Robinson or the poor, like the Cunninghams. This is significant because Scout's tolerance towards the blacks and the poor is a positive influence on other residents of Maycomb. Atticus taught Scout to be non-prejudiced. When people treat others with respect, regardless of their skin colour or their economic status, everyone will live in harmony and learn not to discriminate. For this reason, Scout proves to be non prejudice.
The first way that Atticus' parenting positively impacts Scout is when she reflects his non-prejudice perspective. When Scout and Jem discuss the types of people found in Maycomb County, Scout states "I think there's just one kind of folks. Folks" (Lee 227). In this quote, Scout opposes the categorization of the town's people, thinking that no matter what group of people they are in, each individual has different ways of thinking and each of them have the same rights. This is significant because her father strives to teach her the importance of respecting each person with equality. Didactic teaching is essential for parents to do so their children grow up with a degree of understanding. People need to comprehend why there are certain individuals who make terrible mistakes, instead of being prejudice to an entire group. This is how Atticus' parenting is positively shown through Scout.
The first way that Scout is wise beyond her years is her ability to see her community as equal. This can be seen when she says to Jem that, "I think there's just one kind of folks. Folks" (Lee 227). Her saying this proves that she is able to see past the cultural differences of Maycomb and view them as human beings. It is important to have open minded in the world or change will never come. If people cannot get past skin colour or financial differences, the world could not live together peacefully. Once people can see everyone as equal, life will be a better place to be in. Scout has the gift to see people as they are, human, and that is why Scout continues to be more wise than most people in Maycomb.
The first demonstration that Scout treats everyone with respect can be seen when she does not discriminate against black people or white people. This can be seen in Harper Lee's, To Kill A Mockingbird, when Scout points out to Jem, "'I think there's just one kind of folks. Folks'" (Lee 227). Scout treats everyone with respect by not discriminating against white and black people. In this quote, the author is referring to the fact that Scouts wants there to be a world without racism. She does not understand why people need to be treated differently. This is important because, if Scout feels this way about society, why should other people not feel the same way? Scout has a positive view on society. This will create peace. People need to look at society and not discriminate against others; that way the world will be in a more peaceful state. Scout does not demonstrate a prejudice view on society, and believes in equality.
The first demonstration that shows that Atticus is a good parent is that his children treat everyone equally. This is shown when Scout says to Jem, "I think there's just one kind of folks. Folks" (Lee 227). In this quote, Scout is telling Jem that she does not believe in social barriers. Scout's opinion on different races and income level was altered after she learns that her father is defending a black man in court. The choices Atticus make reflect well on how his children treat others. Children look to their parents for guidance, it is important that they set the example they think is right for their child. When Atticus is defending Tom Robinson, he is also teaching his children that everyone should be treated fairly, equally, with respect and that everyone deserves second chances.
The first way the people of Maycomb are demonstrated as single minded is purely based on the beliefs during that time.
For example, when Scout is talking with Jem she says "' I think there's just one kind of folks. Folks.'" (Lee 227).
Scout is explaining the fact that the people of Maycomb and other places during the 1930's-40's would sooner believe a white person as opposed to a coloured. This was a very substantial problem at the time. Coloured people were discriminated purely based on their appearance.
It was viewed as improper and inappropriate to be seen or have any terms whatsoever with coloured people. This is a prime example of racial segregation. Southern society was entirely segregated. Everything from buses, restaurant seating to washrooms were completely divided based on colour.
This is significant because the Finches are a family that believed everyone was equal. This was very rare to find during this time because of the widespread prejudice. Atticus taught the children that equality was the prime mindset to have to be successful.
scout believes that everyone is equal in the inside: he thinks people are all the same. Scout goes on about this when talking to Jem, her older brother, she tells him “I think there's just one kind of folks, folks” (Lee 227). This quote is significant because the situation that jem and scout are in consists of a lot of racism and discrimination amongst others. When she says this this, she means that in the inside, humans are all the same. Racism was a big issue back then that needed to change. sometimes, even a child can be a change, and Scout shows that. In the novel, Scout’s father, Atticus, had to defend a black male. Most of the adults were quite angry with that. But if a child can be open minded enough to believe that people are all the same and should be treated that way, then adults should be able to as well. Over all, people should realize that everyone is equal and that everyone is alike.
The first reason that proves everyone is equal is the innocence of children. Children are not very experienced and do not know much about the world but still they see everyone as equal. This is shown in To Kill A Mockingbird when scout says "' i think there's just one kind of folks. Folks."'(Lee 227). This shows that all people are equal. It tells us that Scout and Jem are being raised properly. It also tell us that there is hope for Maycomb and ending racism.
The first reason why Scout sees everyone in the town the same can be seen when she is talking about the people in Maycomb with Jem. For example Scout says "I think there's just one kind of folks. Folks (Lee 227). In the quote it shows that Scout thinks that there is only one type of people and these people are just people. This is significant because everyone else sees Maycomb as four types of people the Ewells, Cunninghams, the blacks and the whites. Seeing a town in groups is bad because people will stay with the group they are put into and not mix with the other groups which would help the town become better because no one would feel like they don't belong.
