Couch at the House
"'There's nothing more sickening to me than a low-grade white man who'll take advantage of a Negro's ignorance. Don't fool yourselves-it's adding up and one of these days we're going to pay a bill for it. I hope it's not in you children's time.'" (Atticus, 221)
"'Jem, see if you can stand in Bob Ewell's shoes a minute. I destroyed his last shed of credibility at the trial, if he had some kind of comeback, his kind always does. So if spitting in my face and threatening me saved Mayella Ewell one extra beating, that's something I'll gladly take. He had to take it out on somebody and I'd rather it be me than a houseful of children out there...'" (Atticus says, 218)
"'Those are twelve reasonable men in everyday life, Tom's jury, but you saw something come between them and reason...There's something in our world that makes men lose their heads-they couldn't be fair if they tried. In our courts, when a white man's word against a black man's, the white man always wins. They're ugly, but those are the facts of life.'" (Atticus, 220)
Atticus' definition of trash describes a white man that cheats and takes advantage of a black man.
