Another Touching Moment?
When Dill is upset by the rude interrogation that Mr. Gilmer is giving to Tom, Mr. Raymond is there to calm him. Dill is crying and can't believe the way they talk to him just because he is a colored man. Raymond gives Dill a sip of the mystery beverage in his brown bag, and tells them about the struggles he lives through. What do you think about Mr. Raymond? Do you think he is a smart man, or a man who runs away from his self, by hiding the fact he just chooses to live the way he does? Are the children wrong to have so many preconceived notions about the man, and be skeptical of him?
