SOCIAL CLASS AND POVERTY~ Because of Capitalism there are three levels of social class, studied by Karl Marx. There is the upper class, middle class, and working class.(Whittington-Walsh, Fiona)
Capitalism is shown in To Kill A Mockingbird, for example, there is the Ewells who are seen as the lowest of the low because of the way they live, the way they act, and the way they behave. They are apart of the working class.(Lee, Harper)
Another example of social class in the book is how the African Americans are below the others because of the colour of their skin. This is shown through the differences of their churches, one being nice and clean and the other being broken down and not as nice as the other.(Lee, Harper)
Tom Robinson who is on trial for falsely being accused of raping an american woman has a case which is given so much attention because of the colour of his skin. Another example of African Americans being seen as if they are below the rest of the people in Maycomb.(Lee, Harper)
An example of a family that would be apart of the middle class is the Finches. They live a comfortable life in their home and in the environment around them. Atticus works as a lawyer to insure they get to live a stable life which includes having luxuries and keeping Calpurnia around. (Lee, Harper)
Boo Radley has many rumours told about him and because of the fear people of Maycomb have from him, he is socially below the rest because of them because of rumours the community has heard about him. People see him as nothing other than a mystery.(Lee, Harper)
