Scout observes the hypocrisy with which the women treat faraway cultures compared to how they treat blacks in their own town. The missionary women are willing to help the Mrunas, which they have no connection to, but neglect the needs and sufferings of the black community in their own town. Scout finds it most upsetting that the women discriminate freely against the blacks, complaining about "sulky darkies" and making ridiculous insinuations that black men, spurred on by the trial, will start coming into their beds.
