To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee, The Twelve Angry men by Reginald Rose and The Scottsboro Trial are all about unfair trials containing discrimination towards different people and people being prejudice .The peoples action towards the defendants affected them for the rest of their life. Many of the people that came into the court brought in their own social problems and that influenced the verdict.
To Kill The Mockingbird was about a black guy
showed first 75 words of 726 total
showed last 75 words of 726 total
accused of raping white women.
Overall the blacks are treated better now then they were treated back in the 1930ís because there are laws that protect them like the civil rights act. Many people stereotype people based on their race and class and this proves that people are still prejudice and it still affects the lifeís of others that are being judged. Court room decisions are sometimes based on race and class not evidence.
