Scout heard so many bad things about Negroes such as Tom Robinson she questioned her father and asked why lawyers defended Negroes (Lee, 77). Scout wanted to know many things and wanted to know why they occurred the way they did. Scout was young but she was very smart and knew more than people thought, she was an amazing little girl.

Scout once got into a fight with a boy at school over her dad helping tom out of this mess. Scout asks her father why he was defending a black man if it was wrong (Lee 75).
