1.) This image shows otherness perfectly. It shows that one person is being singled out and segregated just because he is different. In the image it seems as though the white people in the background are dispersing, whilst whispering, away from the black man in the center. The judgement of the white people can be seen with the whispering and movement of them. 2.) In the novel before the court room filled for the persecution, blacks and whites sat separated like the image. Even in the court room the seats were segregated, whites on the bottom and blacks on the top. In the court room there was only one black man who was on the bottom level, because he was being persecuted, while white people behind him gossiped.
1.) People have been differentiating people for thousands of years. The worst in America was around the 17 century, however America has improved. Many people today are thinking it is starting to get worse again. Eduardo Bonilla-Silva calls the situation "new racism". Eduardo also states "After the 1960s and early 1970s, somehow we developed the mythology that systemic racism disappeared...Racism remained...but became more covert". 2.) This article and To Kill A Mockingbird share similarities, one great example can be seen in Tom Robinson. Just because Tom was black the Ewells family falsely accused him of rape and assault, and just because he was black was he convicted. This corrupt system is what many people now days think of our police and government.
1.) The Nazi "Sieg heil" was mandatory for all citizens to perform as a demonstration of loyalty to the Fuhrer, his party, and his nation. This man, August Landmesser, refused to salute during a, 1936, Hitler rally. Amanda Macias wrote "The act of defiance stands out amid the throng of Nazi salutes" (Business insider). She is referring to how Landmesser is the only one crossing his arms is a sea of salutes. Amanda also wrote "June 13, 1936, Landmesser gave a crossed-arm stance during Hitler's christening of a new German navy vessel" (B.I.). She tells us that he came to an important rally and didn't support the nazis. 2.) This article and image can is analogous to To Kill A Mockingbird's idea of otherness in many ways. One similarity can be seen in the actions of Atticus Finch. He defies the common idea of racism by defending a black man in court.
