    “Why reasonable people go stark raving mad when anything involving a ***** comes up, is something I don’t pretend to understand.” (100)”They’re certainly entitled to think that, and they’re entitled to full respect for their opinions… but before I can live with other folks I’ve got to live with myself. The one thing that doesn’t abide by majority rule is a person’s conscience.” (114) “I wanted you to see what real courage is, instead of getting the idea that courage is a man with a gun in his hand. It’s when you know you’re licked before you begin but you begin anyway and you see it through no matter what. You rarely win, but sometimes you do.” (116) “So it took an eight-year-old child to bring ‘em to their senses…. That proves something – that a gang of wild animals can be stopped, simply because they’re still human.” (163) “The one place where a man ought to get a square deal is in a courtroom, be he any color of the rainbow, but people have a way of carrying their resentments right into a jury box.” (220) “I think there’s just one kind of folks. Folks.” (227)”The witnesses for the state…have presented themselves to you gentlemen, to this court, in the cynical confidence that their testimony would not be doubted, confident that you gentlemen would go along with them on the assumption—the evil assumption—that all Negroes lie, that all Negroes are basically immoral beings, that all ***** men are not to be trusted around our women, an assumption one associates with minds of their caliber. Which, gentlemen, we know is in itself a lie as black as Tom Robinson’s skin, a lie I do not have to point out to you. You know the truth, the truth is this: some Negroes lie, some Negroes are immoral, some ***** men cannot be trusted around women, black or white. But this is a truth that applies to the human race and to no particular race of men….” (217) “I don’t know [how they could convict Tom Robinson], but they did it. They’ve done it before and they did it tonight and they’ll do it again and when they do it—seems that only children weep….” (225)

    I don’t have the time to look up nine TKAM quotes about discrimination (which, by the way is not a theme but a “motif”). Hundreds of good quotes exist in TKAM about discrimination. You can also try googleing it. Also try to be more specific with your theme; discrimination is too general.
