Can someone tell me if these 2 sentences are the correct use of a semi colon:

Another example of prejudice displaying in Maycomb county is against Arthur Radly, the local everyone is afraid of; he is considered the town freak.

One more example of prejudice found in To Kill a Mockingbird, would be that of status; the social structure has four different types.

Thank you

    Sentence 1 has a correct use of the semicolon -- it separates two independent clauses.

    Sentence 2 also has a semicolon separating two independent clauses, so the semicolon use is fine. There are two other errors, though. Delete the comma after the book's title, and change the verb "would be" to "is." You're not writing about possibilities; you're writing about what is, right?

    That's correct. Thanks for your help.
