There is great irony in that Bob Ewell considers himself better than his Negro neighbors. How does Harper Lee show this irony?

Bob Ewell's conduct is plainly sub-human. He chooses to live on a garbage dump, drink, and avoid work. He is an ignorant bigot that rapes and beats his own daughter. The irony that Bob thinks he is better than anyone is hard to miss.
