  • Race
  • Racism
  • Rosie's Diner
  • Social Darwinism
  • Race is socially created way of categorizing humans into groups based on physical and biological traits. Though all humans belong to the same species, there are small genetic differences across the world that create diverse physical appearances, such as differences in skin colour, hair texture and facial features. (Whittington-Walsh)
  • Stereotypes
  • Racism is defined as prejudice and discrimination against a person due to the belief that all members of a specific race possess characteristics and qualities that make them inferior or superior to other races. There is the “majority” group who control the social system and the “minority” group who lack access to power. (Whittington-Walsh)
  • Tom Robinson
  • He raped her!
  • Herbert Spencer developed the concept of evolution by comparing human society to animal species and their ability to adapt to change. His theory of "Social Darwinism" states that simpler societies must develop into complex societies to survive (survival of the fittest). He used western standards to evaluate non-western societies which justified white supremacy. (Whittington-Walsh)
  • Dolphus Raymond
  • A stereotype is a fixed and simplified conception of a person or object. It reduces everything to those traits and isolate the abnormal people. When a stereotype is applied to a specific person, it is known as prejudice. When prejudice influences a person's behavior towards another person and denies an individual to rights and freedoms is called discrimination. (Whittington-Walsh)
  • To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper takes place during the 1930’s when African American’s were seen as the lowest social class. A black man named Tom Robinson was put on trial for raping a white woman. Atticus, Tom’s lawyer, states that when it’s a white man’s word against a black man’s, the white man always wins. The jury voted against Tom because he was black and part of the minority. (Lee 1960)
  • There is a clear divide between the white and black population in Maycomb. Dolphus Raymond is a fairly weathy, white man who is in a relationship and has mixed children with a black woman. When in public, he pretends to be intoxicated so the racists in Maycomb can have a reason to believe why he would want to be with a black woman. (Lee 1960)
