Atticus is a racist?  Well, the book just came out.  I guess I might as well read it.  I am not sure if I would even consider it canon.

This book was actually submitted to the editor before To Kill a Mockingbird. However, Harper Lee was told to rewrite it from Scout's viewpoint. Lee never intended for Go Set a Watchman to get published.

Maybe this was the original idea Lee had.  Maybe this was the book Lee wanted to publish, but the editor didn't.  Lee gave her consent to publish the book.  Some argue that Lee was manipulated in her elderly age, but that's another argument.

Kind of off track but on...I read a blog review on To Kill a Mockingbird in which the owner of the blog said they did not and will not be reading that book because it made no sense to them.  Commenters agreed with the blogger.  I was like...wow.  To me, it's a must read.

I've never read To Kill a Mockingbird but I've read plenty of reviews on Go Set a Watchman. Maybe if I ever get around to it I will... where did all the time go!?

Best book ever! I can use this idea for an action book. I love creative writing and I love composing music. These two things can go together to make a scene for some movies, games, or a thought of imagining how the story will go.

I just learned how to use a semicolon in a better way rather than using to contrast something. I am starting to see the semicolon as a hyphen when a person speak.

For example:

1. Jimmy decided to go work by bringing his suitcase; he didn't forget about his appointment for his date at 7 p.m.

Hint for number 1: Jimmy and he is in third person view. Therefore, you can use this as a semicolon. Anything that relates to first person, second person, or third person view, you can use a semicolon.

2. Ashley forgot to say hi to Jimmy; James accidentally interrupted in front of Ashley.

MAN...I find the semicolon to be VERY sexy. Ashley and James are in third person view and therefore, I find it to be very intriguing.

I learned this from this book and others as well. O0 ;) :)

My response is way old but why all the questions? I was merely submitting an interesting fact about the new book. Plus, why are you and the rest of your socialists so surprised about Atticus being a racist? I recently re-read the book, or should I say listened to the audiobook, and CLEARLY ATTICUS FINCH IS A RACIST!

Oh, he might not be the lynching kind of racist but he certainly is a racist. The title "To Kill a Mockingbird" is racist. Finch views black people as nothing more than pitiful creatures too ignorant and unintelligent to do for themselves and must depend on the charity of whites.

The soft bigotry of low expectations. Obviously, something that you libs are too arrogant to recognize in the mirror.  ::)
