How does the following quote support the idea that class division is a type of prejudice seen in the novel, To Kill A Mockingbird?: "There's four kinds of folks in the world. There's the ordinary kind, like us and the neighbours, there's the kind like the Cunningham's out in the woods, the kind like the Ewell's down at the dump, and the Negroes."

  • English -

    The first three categories seem to be based on the economic status of the individuals. Classifying a fourth class as Negroes is clearly a racist classification.
