In the last few lines Scout says, "he was real nice.." and Atticus replies, "most people are, Scout, when you finally see them." Do you agree that most people in the novel are nice once you see them? How is Atticus able to see the good side of people despite all he has experienced?

I think this is just part of who Atticus is. Atticus is a progressive enlightened person who respects all human beings. I wouldn't agree with the assertion that most people are nice once you know them but then I'm not as enlightened as Atticus. I have trouble getting past my own emotions while Atticus is able to see things in an objective yet very human manner.
