• The book “To Kill A Mockingbird” is a great book. While BI was reading it I had in my mind that kids have a really big mind of adventure and would do anything to have fun. For example when Scout, Jem and Dill rol

    • I like how you talked about the reader’s assumptions and then gave information to back it up. Great job!

    • DEAR OSCAR,
      you’ve well explained the whole point of this section of the story according to your title. There are lots of ways on how being a different color would make a person feel left out. According to “being black” a black person is nothing compared to a white person. I’m sure You’ve made any who read this understand exactly what the story is saying. In the story Mr.Ewell is a total coward and a liar. according to this story it states,f “To Kill A Mockingbird” by Harper Lee might leave the reader frustrated and irritated at Mr. Ewell because of his nasty, racist and rude comments and tone. this shows how racist Ewell was. I love the way you even supported your claim with relevant facts from the actual story. most people who read this will feel great since this is an understanding story to read.

    • Oscar, I really liked how you did an in-depth analysis of How to Kill a Mockingbird. I agree with your frustrations early on in the book. It’s really hard reading a book with racism and sexism in the modern era. It feels horrible reading disgusting things said or done to people of color. I look forward to reading your other analyzes of the book!

    • I really like how you described and told the book. I have never read the book, but this gave me a little overview of what to expect if I was ever to read it. I think it is interesting how they treat black people here specifically. One thing maybe to help that comment that you made would be to compare how it was before to how they are treated today. I really liked though that you made a reference to a death penalty that was laced upon an African American for just being “black”. But, overall, you did a really good job.

      Oscar,
      To Kill a Mockingbird is most definitely a great piece of literature. The themes of racism, family, and justice work to give social commentary of the racism that was pervasive during the time. I like how you discuss the reader’s attitude towards the story, because the book was written with the intent of making the reader question the derogatory practices prevalent in the real world.

    • I’m right there with you in your experience with that book. I too was taken aback by just how cruel the culture that Harper Lee portrays was. While it is a story of heroism, the “bad guy” in it lives on today in quiet corners of this country. You draw attention to that, and make it clear that a problem is never really gone, but rather ebbs and flows as time’s arrow marches forward.

      I really liked how much you went into your life and how passionate you seem about it. Overall i thought it was very good and enjoyed seeing things like your life dreams and how you want to fight against the bad being done in America to make life fair for everyone. I am also impressed how you weren’t scared to just let all your emotions and personal info out for people to read. Many people would be worried to say information about their parents and specific days in your life. GJ
