Sequel to iconic ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’ shocks everyone; Atticus Finch is a RACIST

The author of “To Kill a Mockingbird” has made its hero a racist in a new book.

Harper Lee, who wrote the modern American classic depicting a white Alabama lawyer Atticus Finchwho defends a poor black man accused of rape in the 1930s, has published a sequel, “Go Set a Watchman.”

In it, she gives a complete face lift to Atticus Finch, “Mockingbird’s” saintly lawyer, by turning him into a racist.


In the sequel, set in the 1950s but written before “Mockingbird,” Finch says blacks are too “backward” to “share fully in the responsibilities of citizenship” and rails that the NAACP is composed of opportunists and troublemakers, according to The Associated Press.

When news of the sequel hit the public, the public took to social media to express sorrow, disappointment, and even disgust.

I know the feeling. Even the movie version, starring the late Gregory Peck as Finch, was a classic.

For some people, the news was a double whammy.

One person even offered an excuse.

Then there are those who were hardest hit by the news.

The book is scheduled to be released Tuesday.
