To Kill a Mockingbird

at one point bob ewel comments that the "nest of the black families down yonder" is "dangerous to live around sides devalunin his property" what is ironic about this? and perhaps even more ironic what is the grain of truth in the statement?

The irony is that Bob Ewell lives in a trash heap. The grain of truth lies in the fact that whites deemed blacks as second-class citizens hence the land values where they lived would be lower.
