Atticus knows the people in his town. He is able to look beyond the bigotry to address the person rather than their actions. Bob Ewell of course was a lost cause but Atticus tried with others. He tells Scout that, "You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view...until you climb into his skin and walk around in it." Atticus takes this to his own heart. He sees beyond Ms. Dubose's insults; he sees beyond the rumours of Boo Radley; He sees the value of defending Tom Robinson. There are examples of Atticus's sense of dignity for others throughout the book.

Thank you too Aslan!!!! I needed help on this since YESTERDAY!
