English homework-TCAM-Identity

How is identity shown in chapter 16 of To Kill A Mockingbird

Identity is portrayed in chapter 16 of TCAM. It is shown in many different aspects but what I would like to draw attention to is that both white and black people know there status in Maycomb. The white are seen as the wealthy, better ethnicity whereas the black people are seen to be lesser than them. I know this as in chapter 16, when the neighbour gather outside the courthouse, white people are seen eating and drinking the nicer food, dressed appropriately, having a picnic and then the black people are described as in the corner feeding of low quality food. There is clear segregation within Maycomb and identity of ethnicity is shown by the different classes they are in, white people are seen as more fortunate than the black minority.
