Nobody is perfect but if you are born in July you’re pretty damn close shirt was a benevolent racist. If he was born 100 years earlier, he’d be a benevolent plantation owner who wouldn’t go out of his way to be cruel to his slaves, he wouldn’t rape his slaves, he might even try to keep slave families together. But he would not have any problem purchasing and selling human beings, require them to work 15 hours in the field without pay. He wouldn’t even stop his overseers whipping his slaves as punishment. He’s a decent man from the privileged class of his time, who had zero intention to challenge the status quo even if he might personally sympathize with the plight of underprivileged people. I hear you, white people in the back who grow up reading To Kill a Mockingbird and think Atticus was the best white dude ever. I hear you this is not the first time I discuss Atticus Finch being a benevolent racist.

Nobody is perfect but if you are born in July you’re pretty damn close shirt was a hero, and his racism was the product of his time. I can’t use modern standards to judge a fictional character in a historical setting. People had been using that argument for ages to justify racism. If we were all products of our time, if we all just followed the societal convention without challenging it when it felt wrong, we’d still be living in a society with slavery, where women couldn’t vote or own property, where children would be forced to work in factories because it’s cheaper to employ them. The problem is black people in this book were deprived of agency. Tom Robinson was a silent victim put there to suffer through this ordeal, an object the white savior must help and protect, nothing more. We know very little about him, he did very little, and his actions didn’t matter.
