    Hi Jayda, What do you think the answer might be? Can you eliminate some of the options? If you haven't read the story, you can check out cliff notes to get an idea of what it is about.

    Sadly enough, the answer is C. The jury was made up of people too afraid to rule in favor of a black man, Tom Robinson, even though circumstantial evidence supported him. This was somewhere in the 1920's so racial discrimination was still common. I highly recommend this book, it has great description and tells a really good story. Good luck!

    The answer is C. If you read this book, then this is apparent and essential. The entire book basically revolves around this. Many people can see Tom's innocence, but in that day and age, no one would dare rule in favor of a colored man. The purpose of this trial in the story is to show the prejudice and corruption within the court system almost wholly because of race.
