Slavery and racism are a very conversational topic. To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee has racism which is prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism directed against someone of a different race based on the belief that one's own race is superior. During the 1900’s they had very big options on which was better blacks or whites.

Racism is the result of slavery because slaves are illegal; now people are just racist. Slavery played a marginal role in the history of the Americas. Myth. African slaves were the only remedy for the labor shortages that plagued Europe's New World dominions. Fact about American slavery. The Catholic Church did not tolerate the mixture of Catholicism with traditional African religions. Myth. In Kongo and in Latin America, the Church did tolerate the mixture of Catholicism with African religions, allowing Africans to retain their old cosmology, understanding of the universe, and the place of gods and other divine beings in the universe. Fact about Religion. Religion has another big scandal like slavery for WW2, but To Kill a Mocking didn’t deal with religion that much, but it did bring it up only a couple of times, but it wasn’t that big. Slave Trade the procuring, transporting, and selling of human beings as slaves, in particular the former trade in African blacks as slaves by European countries and North America. The slave trade reduced the adult male population by about 20 percent, dramatically altering the ratio of working adults to dependents and of adult men to adult women. Most slave owners wanted African American men because they are stronger and can do more handy “manly” possessions. Th only reason they would want women was because they wanted to do sexual things. But by the time the New World came around About 14 percent of slaves sent to the New World were children under 14; 56 percent were male adults; and 30 percent were female adults. Even when it came to very serious and mature topics they were still bias on the blacks were ad and the whites were good.

In To Kill a Mockingbird Atticus stood up for the African American for sexually assaulting a young white girl. Atticus believed that he did not do that and he was correct Tom did not assault her but he was blamed for it because the judge was racist he believed the white young girl over the grown black man. Only because of his skin. “So far, things were utterly dull: nobody had thundered, there were no arguments between opposing counsel, there was no drama; a grave disappointment to all present, it seemed. Atticus was proceeding amiably, as if he were involved in a title dispute. With his infinite capacity for calming turbulent seas, he could make a rape case as dry as a sermon.” This is pretty much saying about how there wasn’t much to say about the case and not a lot was going on, but Atticus made the case as dull as possible because there wasn’t much to say besides he didn’t do, and he still got blamed for it. There’s nothing to say that was important so there isn’t much to talk about anyways.

Through the trial, racism, slavery, and judgmental people tom and Atticus handled everything very well. Even though people are rude and disrespectful. They kind of understood what was going on but they realize that it’s all just based on the color of their skin that made them win or lose the trial in the end.
You are never going to be as cool as me loser.
