Atticus is much more socially progressive than his sister is. Atticus is interested in all people being treated fairly and all people being respected regardless of social status, color of skin, or creed. Aunt Alexandra likes to think that she comes from high pedigree in the south. She still has ingrained perceptions about social status and race. Atticus is certainly more heroic in his outlook. Much of the American white south held beliefs of racism. Atticus fought, often alone, for the rights and privileges of blacks as well as low status whites. In some instances, he even risks his life to protect people like Tom Robinson from racism and violence.
