Storyboard Text

  • You ain't got no business bringin' white chillun here- they got their church, we got our'n.
  • Well, Dill, after all his is just a Negro.
  • I don't care one speck. It ain't right, somehow it ain't right to do em' that way. Hasn't anybody got any business talkin' like that-it just makes me sick.
  • You may not.
  • Yessum, and she promised me I could come out to her house some afternoon. Atticus, I'll go next Sunday if it's all right, can I?
  • This scene supporst the theme because it shows how people are so stuck in their ways that they won't even let a child into a House of God because of their skin color. "You ain't got no business bringin' white chillun here- they got their church, we got our'n. It's our church, ain't it, Miss Cal?" "It's the same God, ain't it? " pg. 158
  • This scene supports the theme because the idea that a child has a better moral compass than most of the adults in that court room, and is moved to tears by it shows how wrong and unjust the court is. "Well, Dill, after all his is just a Negro. " "I don't care one speck. It ain't right, somehow it ain't right to do em' that way. Hasn't anybody got any business talkin' like that-it just makes me sick." pg. 266
  • Aunt Alexandra's answer to Scouts seemingly innocent question supporst the theme because Scout's question showed how stuck Aunt Alexandra is in her and others ways. "Yessum, and she promised me I could come out to her house some afternoon. Atticus, I'll go next Sunday if it's all right, can I? " "You may not." pg. 181
