  • Atticus needs to defend Tom Robinson, a black man who allegedly raped a white women. Atticus doesnt want to take the case because he knows Tom will lose based on the fact that he's black but does it anyways. This results in the town not liking Atticus, even going to the extent of calling him a "N***** lover". This sis an example of institutionalized racism in the town of Maycomb.
  • Calpurnia is Atticus's Black maid. Though Atticus treats calpurnia appreciates her and isnt racist himself, this still shows an example of a stereotype for Maycomb in this time period. Calpurnia is a women which puts her in the kitchen, taking care of the kids and doing house work. Being black also stereotypes her to be a "slave" working under a white man.
