Today I will compare the views of my aunt and myself about folks.
Hi! I'm Jean Louise Finch, or Scout, and this is my brother Jem.
This is Aunt Alexandra. She thinks fine folks are those that have a nice background.
She thinks that those who have owned a piece of property for a very long time or have a good family history are fine folks.
For example, my father, Atticus Finch is one of these folks because he defended Tom Robinson when no one else would, simply because Tom was a black person. He is what I would call a fine folk.
However, I believe that folks are defined by their actions. There are just some folks that do more influential things than others.
These are the Cunninghams. They are regular folks just like me and Jem.
However, they have one rule: they will not take any money that they can not give back. This was demonstrated once by Walter in class when Miss Caroline, our teacher, tried to lend Walter a quarter for lunch. He refused, since his family doesn't even have a quarter to pay her back.
Aunt Alexandra does not approve of me playing with Walter because she thinks the Cunninghams are "trash," but to me they're nice folks.
Oh, no! It's Mr.Ewell! He's the one who accused Tom Robinson of raping Mayella Ewell! The evidence that Atticus presented in court was ignored by the all- white jury, indicating much of the final results were biased. Also, a few days after the trial, Mr.Ewell even tried to kill us! He is not a fine folk, but a poor folk.
Quick! Let's go home, Jem!
Good night, Scout!
Back home again! I hope that my definition of different types of folks were clear enough! Good night Jem!
