A Creative Writing Example Of Tom Robinson In To Kill A Mockingbird Which Demonstrates Racism Against Him

455 words - 2 pages

I can't believe my position. I am a peaceful man, and I didn't do any harm. The people of Maycomb only know me by what other people said about me. To the people of Maycomb County, I am just a black man whose words are nothing but lies and who has committed an unthinkable crime. Chopping wood and doing whatever I could for Mayella Ewell was my only crime. I never harmed a soul. I risked my own safety by helping Mayella, and I did it because someone needed me.

Yet, there are people who unjustly see past the kindness and simply see what they want to see. This leads to issues about race. These people than become prejudice towards certain people. Also, they may even "kill" the people who are genuinely kind human beings simply because they are different. Thus, I'm afraid that I am close this result. I am a genuinely kind person and now I am being destroyed by my willingness to help Mayella Ewell. After being accused of rape, most of the people see me as an evil beast. During the trial, while Bob Ewell was testifying, he pointed at me and said, "I seen that black negro yonder ruttin' on my Mayella." According to Mr. Ewell, I am an animal who violated his daughter. Throughout the trial, I am portrayed in this manner because of the racist mentality of the people in Maycomb. Even though there is a sufficient amount of proof which shows I did not commit the crime, I am a black man who will be denied justice. Because in our courts, when it's a white man's word against a black man's, the white man always wins. The fact that no one realizes my unfair treatment makes me much more sorrowful. I am thinking about getting out of here, because no one will realize my unfair treatment!
