We lost?!?!?!?!

After what seemed like 5 hours the jury came back in to the room to tell their decision. Atticus lost the case! I don’t see how this is possible. I was sure that we would win. I still don’t know what rape is but I know that Tom Robinson didn’t rape Mayella. Just because Tom Robinson is black I guess the jury already thought that he was guilty. This is not fair! Atticus said that there will be an appeal which we will have a better chance in winning.

That poor Tom Robinson did not commit the rape. Why is he gettin locked up? It's just not right. Just cause he's black doesn't mean he deserves to be punished for it. It makes me a little worried that maybe one day i'll be charged with a crime i had nothing to do with, just cause of the color of my skin.
