1 Annastasia Hurt-Moran Mr. Ward English 6 15 December 2016 To Kill a Mockingbird Half of Americans — 50 percent — say racism is a “big problem” in society today, according to a poll conducted by CNN and the Kaiser Family Foundation. People are fighting what they think is racism. Some even think it is worst then how African-Americans were treated in the early 1930s. Back then White people consider themselves to be better and a whole different class of people. Almost all thought they were higher and better than African-Americans, Whites thought they were savages and animals much like the Indians. In the early 1930 African Americans were treated worse than they are today. In To Kill a Mockingbird, Tom Robinson an African American, was accused of rapeing a white girl (Mayella Ewell) but in reality her dad(Mr. Ewell) beat her. In evidenced Mr. Ewell was left handed and Tom was crippled in his left hand, Mayella was beaten mostly on the left side of her face (To Kill a Mockingbird-Harper Lee).

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
