Human nature is a very hard thing to define. Describing it is not so very easy, as you might think that it's just 'the way humans do things'. It is much deeper than that. Human nature is more on how humans react to certain events and how they make decisions. In Harper Lee's worldwide famous novel, To Kill a Mockingbird, the characters think, act, and do exactly as a normal person would do. That is what makes the book so fun to read. The book is somewhat about the bad side of human nature. An example of a conflict in the book is racism, which plays a huge role at the end of the book. Another example of human nature in the book is when Mrs. Dubose calls Jem's father, Atticus, a nigger lover. Human nature can sometimes be like that.
Tom Robinson is the name of a black man in the book, which takes place in Maycomb, Alabama. Tom's left arm is 12 inches shorter than a normal person's arm at his age and height. His arm is completely useless, he can't do anything with it. In part II of the novel he goes to a court case for being convicted of rape. He is found guilty. Even though evidence at the court case shows that he didn't do anything, he is hanged anyway, just for being black. Racism has always been around ever since there have been humans
