A Bird Is Judged On Its Looks

On a bright warm sunny day everything stood quiet in the Finch's yard. A mockingbird stood on top of an old tree with rotten brown branches. As it got ready to sing, "boom" a loud thunder sound rose very high in the sky. A shiny silver bullet flew very fast and hit the mockingbird. The bird fell slowly down to the ground with thick, dark red blood coming from its mouth. The bird did get a chance to sing its song out and it is dead. The townspeople just killed an innocent bird by mistaken. They judge the bird on its looks because they thought the mockingbird is just an ordinary bird that steals sun flower seeds. They did not know that the mockingbird was a unique bird that can sing. The mockingbird is killed for being kind because it was just trying to share its peaceful song to the townspeople.
The movie To Kill A Mockingbird, directed by Robert Mulligan, takes place in Southern Alabama in a small town called Maycomb. During this time period the 1930's, African Americans were segregated from White folks. The Black people could not share water fountains or restrooms with the White people. The film is about a southern town dealing with racist and judgmental attitudes. Atticus Finch is a lawyer defending an innocent black man, and is also trying to raise his kids to be open minded. In the end, Tom is killed and Boo Radley saves the kids lives, showing that the judgments people make can be harmful or untruth. Tom Robinson and Boo Radley are like the mockingbird that was judge on its looks because the townspeople just thought that they are as bad as what other folks in Maycomb said. The townspeople did not get a chance to hear their voice to understand if they are good men or bad men. Tom and Boo are a symbol of a mockingbird because they were judge on their lookd.
A mockingbird is an innocent living creature that does not harm anyone; by singing s song from it's heart. All it wants to do id to sing and be itself. Just like the mockingbird, Tom Robinson and Boo Radely in the film To Kill A Mockingbird, are two characters who are also tragically silenced. Tom was accuse of raping a white woman because he was trying to help her chop wood. Boo Radley was being called crazy because he never comes out and the townspeople just assume that he is a monster.
Tom Robinson, a person who is innocent and kind, and as s result is destroyed by his own willingness to help Mayella Ewell, a white woman. Just like a mockingbird, Tom was a kind and gentel character by judged upon his kindness and his race. Tom Robinson is a mockingbird in the book because he was killed for his own kindness. It is a crime to kill a mockingbird because it is harmless. He was killed because of his kindness and his race.
Boo Radley also can be compared to the mockingbird because he was judged on what the townspeople siad. He is like a mockingbird because he did not hurt anyone, and he keeps to himself. In the Film To Kill A Mockingbird, Boo Radley rescue Jem and Scout from Bob Ewell because he was trying to kill them.
Both characters are innocent and misunderstood. Just like how a mockingbird can be mistaken for its look. Tom and Boo are often percieved as threats simply because they are different. Tom was a black man and the townspeople accused him for raping a white woman. The townspeople did not listen well to him in court. They just confirmed him as an suspect. Boo was known to be different because he never comes out. The townspeople just think that he is dangerous. Jem and Scout thought he ate raw squirrels. The townspeple judged the both of them on their looks just like killing an innocent mockingbird by mistaken.
A mockingbird is just an innocent and kind creature. It was judged upon its look because the townspeople thought it might be a thief. There are some some human beings who are good and bad. The good ones allow other people like Tom and Boo Radley to be themselves. The bad ones judge them on their looks. Tom Robinson was a kind man who was destroyed by his kindness for helping a white woman. Boo Radley is a mockingbird because he never comes out from his home and he is being judged for who he is. Tom an Boo are a symbol of a mockingbird because they were judge on their appearances and it is like killing a mockingbird on its look.
