Hi there, i posted a question similar to this yesterday that i am having a little more difficulty with.

Discuss the theme of intolerance in relation to the novel. Use examples of people who are involved in bringing out this theme.

I am having trouble coming up with a thesis statement. One of the characters who show intolerance is Aunt Alexandra who is a perfect example of narrow-mindedness and racial intolerance. When Scout and Jem want to go to Calpurnia's church she quickly hesistated and said 'No'.

I don't know how to connect the character of Aunt Alexandra to the thesis statment.

Please help.
Thank you.

    I read this book! :-)

    Anyway, I would suggest somehow stating that people are quick to make decisions because they think they go against their beliefs, or that they wouldn't be able to tolerate it.

    Like Aunt Alexandra didn't want Scout and Jem to go to Calpurnia's church just because she was African American, and she thought that because of that it wasn't a good place to be.

    Hopefully I helped! :-)
