Many of the same racist details appear in the To Kill a Mockingbird movie as the novel

Many of the same racist details appear in the To Kill a Mockingbird movie as the novel, but some racist elements were added that weren’t in the book, such as Cecil James calling Atticus a “N-lover” to Scout’s face. When Cecil James said this to her it resulted in a fight that never occured in the book. Unlike the quote from the book, “that only children weep,” Cecil James was not the kind of kid that was heartbroken by the results of the trial. Jem on the other hand throughout the trial his lack of exposure to racism was clear. This made him believe that Tom had a chance to be innocent. Atticus’s final speach becomes a point of hope through the upstairs of the courtroom, the black community, Scout, Dill, and Jem, who all share the confidence that the court vote will be unbiased.
