Atticus's defence of a black man over the word of a white man, Bob Ewell, puts the down against him. Race is a powerful issue in the American South, especially when the rape of a white girl is involved. Much of the town has condemned Tom Robinson before the trial even begins. This intensifies an already antagonistic relationship between blacks and whites.
