Scout refers to blacks as "negros" for one thing. They have a black housekeeper. It's pretty much a given in the story.

thanks. can you answer a few more questions for me?


what does scout say about the history of the town and what life is like there?

Scout's ancestor is named as Simon Finch, a southern landowner (Finch's Landing), who owned slaves and farmed cotton. It is also noted that he would have disapproved of the Civil War and his family being of everything but their land. Not to mention that her father Atticus is under fire from the rest of the community for his defense of a black man.

I just posted this but it says that Mayconb is "an old town but a tired old town"...

Scout then describes Depression-era Maycomb, "an old tired town when I first knew it", summer heat and slow pace of life. She notes, "There was no hurry, for there was nowhere to go, nothing to buy and no money to buy it with, nothing to see outside the boundaries of Maycomb County".

you are amazing thanks so much bothof you.
