Ignorance leads to prejudices while being educated results in a better understanding of the importance and value of equality.
Atticus adequately defends Tom Robinson against Mr. Ewell's false accusations which Atticus proves are wrong. However, the jury finds Tom guilty because he is a black man, which Atticus knew was going to happen, but tried his best to defend Tom. Mr. Ewell is not educated and is just a mean man that does not treat any person with respect. On the contrary, Atticus is very well educated and knows the significance of treating everyone respectfully.
After seeing how Tom was treated in the courtroom and witnessing the evil things Mr. Ewell was saying about Tom Robinson, Dill started crying because he does not like the way Mr. Ewell is treating Tom Robinson. Dill says that this whole case is unfair and that Tom Robinson did not do anything, but because he is a black man he will be convicted. Dill is influenced in this situation on his thoughts towards black people by the Finch's, because he is always with them in the summer and followed this case and listened to the Finch's thoughts on it.
Even after the case, Mr. Ewell continues to harass the Robinson family by following Mrs. Robinson to work and mumbling obscene things and intimidating her. Mr. Ewell is ignorant by harassing a family just because they are a different race. He does not understand that it is not okay to be racist probably because his parents never instilled those values in him.
