Prejudice and racism will always apply, sadly enough.  The world will never be perfect, and unfortunately, the human race may never be "grown" enough to truly celebrate the uniqueness and beauty of others instead of attacking it.

The concept of a "mockingbird" is quite prominant even in modern life. Everywhere, from school to work, there will be people who will get hurt even though they are innocent. Bullies attack people simply because they are different. Does that sound like Boo to you? Boo simply doesn't deserve the type of insults and mockery as he just wants to live how he wants to.

In modern life, there are just so many scenarios where people are hurt for unfair reason. A mockingbird don't do one thing but sing their hearts out for us. That's why its a sin to kill a mockingbird. [Pg 96]
