Atticus Finch is RACIST?

I guess we will all have to re-examine this hero. I remember applying for a job and being asked the question, “who is your hero?” I answered Atticus Finch and the interviewer didn’t know who that was, “is he a good guy or a bad guy?” Today, I would have to answer that question with a shrug.

Maybe I’ll read “Go Set a Watchman”, but I’m in no hurry. If it wasn’t suitable for publication and had to be reworked into “To Kill a Mockingbird”, I don’t think that I’d care to read this early draft.

“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.” To Kill a Mockingbird
