Introduction

Examine The Attitudes Of Mr. Finch, Miss. Maudie and Mr. Raymon To Black People And How It Differs From The Majority? In this essay I will compare the thoughts of three people with the common thoughts of the general public. Dulphas Raymon seems to like black people more than white people. He is married to a black woman, his kids are half casts and he sits with the blacks. He does not care what white people think of him, all he cares about are the ones he loves. He pretends to be alcoholic so people don't blame him for his problems -as they would call it, 'problems'. Atticus Finch thinks blacks are equal to whites but he will not fight for their rights. ...read more.

Middle

For example; when Atticus loses the trial she bakes them a cake to show that it had not affected their friendship. The differences between Dulphas Rayman and the average Maycomb citizens are drastic. He prefers blacks to whites but the general public despise them. He is married to a black woman and he is proud to have half cast children, although they are considered the misfits and cast offs of society. The public disagree more than anything of mixed marriages, they think that black men are scum, but Dulphas is quite happy for the whites to treat him like dirt if the blacks he lives with are friendly with him. ...read more.

Conclusion

In conclusion, all three characters believe that black folk are equal to white folk. Dulphas lets the world know what he thinks by his actions, for example marrying a black woman. Atticus does not say it directly but suggests it, when he stands up for Tom Robinson when know one else would. Miss Maudie does not show she has thoughts either way, but you can tell from her actions that she is sympathetic, by baking him a cake when he lost the case. This shows she is sorry he lost the case in the only way she can express it. These are the ways the characters differ from the public. ...read more.
